In my move from Penang to Melbourne, I became aware that the dispossesions of a theory of modernity were being reinforced by some later trends in urban studies. It was then I realised that the rest of the world didn’t necessarily think of Penang or any other Malaysia city for that matter, in the way I did. Of course, anyone from outside the city was not going to understand how that place could be the centre of my world, a core reference point for life choices and ambitions.
