The Shaping Of Identity

I made miso soup for Rama one dinner. She ate all of the tofu and the seaweed, but there was still a lot of broth left.

Me: Rama, pwede mo yang inumin from the bowl. Parang Japanese, ganito sila uminom ng soup.
Rama: Eh bakit ko iinumim na ganun, eh Pilipino naman ako, hindi Japanese! (Pause) Pero ngayon, English ako, because I'm in Canada.
