What do you remember about your childhood? A couple weeks ago I asked Ricepaper friends to send me photos of themselves when they were little. The pictures they submitted were funny and adorable. What makes one’s childhood “Asian Canadian”? Making bunny ears? Shovelling snow with an ice cream bucket? Having sensitive teeth? I’m not too sure. Take a look at these photos and perhaps you can decide for yourself.
