I'm back!

The Hakka have inhabited Yongding and its neighbouring villages for hundreds of years. During the Jin dynasty (AD 265-314) the Hakka people of Northwest China began a gradual migration south to escape persecution and famine. They eventually settled in Fujian, Jiangxi and Guangdong, where they built the tulou to protect themselves from bandits and wild animals. (Lonely Planet - China).

I've got some more of this little fella in stock! He loved getting his photo taken! He risked life and limb for this one. I was taking slow shutter speed pics of the wear and not of him. This was his way of getting in the picture! I love his little suit jacket! So smart!

苗栗 Miaoli - Day 2

Here is another mural by artist Julia Volchkova . This is a painting of Pang Yi Chuen, a local Hakka girl whose traditional dancing caught the eye of artist Julia at the Hakka Association in George Town, Penang, Malaysia. The town of Balik Pulau, where the mural can be seen, has a predominant Hakka population.

The Hakkas , sometimes known as Hakka Han, are Han Chinese people whose ancestral homes are chiefly in the Hakka-speaking provincial areas of China. The Chinese characters for Hakka (客家) literally mean "guest families". Unlike other Han Chinese groups, the Hakkas are not named after a geographical region, e.g. a province, county or city. The modern day Hakkas are usually identified with people who either speak the Hakka language or share at least some Hakka ancestry.They are thought to have originated from the lands bordering the Yellow River. In a series of migrations, the Hakkas moved and settled in their present areas in Southern China, and from there, substantial numbers migrated overseas to various countries throughout the world; worldwide population of Hakkas is about 80 million.
