Product Description:

Tired of Europeans describing 'exotic' Asian cultures? Here is a refreshing twist with Lee Su Kim, a Straits Chinese (Nyonya) writer, observing Americans as she writes about her 'expat' experiences in Texas, the Lone Star State, USA.

Original, quirky and sometimes hilarious. A great read, always entertaining, tinged with delicate satire, poignant and touching at times, scathing and ironic at others.

The author regales us with her brilliant and funny insights into life and society in Texas, highlighting the complexities of cross-cultural encounters, its joys and travails.

Writing in the winning style we've come to know her for, she reveals delightful oddities wen Visiting Alien meets Resident Americans, and pokes fun at Texans, Americans and... even fellow Malaysians aren't spared!
