Visiting The House I Grew Up In

Punyu House

The house I grew up in has been in my family for four generations. It was built brick by brick by my great great grandfather and still stands today. The surroundings have changed a lot since I last visited it over a decade ago. The roads are now paved and there’s electricity 24/7. There’s even high speed Internet access! Punyu is no longer a small farming village. With the incredible growth of nearby Guangzhou, Punyu has pretty much become an extension of the city.

Our house is one of the few remaining homes from my time. Most of the houses I grew up next to have been torn down and replaced with apartments. The farming village has turned into a hot place for Guangzhou city workers to find inexpensive places to rent. Growth is being spurred on by the construction of a high speed rail line that will connect Gaungzhou and Punyu to the new International airport. If there is a recession, this part of China is not feeling it.

While the village may have grown and changed, the house I grew up in has remained the same. It still has no heating, electricity or running water. I lived in this house for the first seven years of my life. This is where I came from.

        Wow. I agree
        But not because it looks like a jail
        Wow because it is still standing and your great grandfather built it. Seriously you should consider buying the house so that it will be around for your kids and their kids and so some developer doesn’t knock it down.
        I know you have enough money to buy it. Maybe you should so you can save it for future generations.

  5. very humbling video John…any plans for the house since nobody lives there? I got to see my the house my great great grandparents built in India a few yrs back and its just like this..its now in my name and really have no idea what I’m supposed to do with it.

    Aman@BullsBattleBears’s last blog post: Q1 of 2009 comes to an end!

    1. John Chow says:

      I have two choices. I can either tear it down and put up a new house or tear it down and put up a new apartment. I can’t leave it in its current condition since it’s not livable. I am leaning towards the apartment because I don’t see myself moving back there to live.

      1. Kinda sad for it to be torn down. Yes it may be abandoned and useless but it’s history. I have a soft spot for old buildings. Maybe build but incorporate the old into new? Any idea on the age of it?

        This is a wonderful house John! It can be redecorated in a small lofty town villa. Redecorated will be worth much more if you decide to sell it or you could chose to have a 2nd house there and enjoy. It has nice private garden too.

        I’m ipressed by the height of doors.. curious trade off though to have no windows but have tall doors.

        1. That is the same option I have….well not the apts in India, but either my options are to keep the house as is (which is fairly run down) for historical purpose or just throw in money and build a nice new house. One of the options is practical while the other is more of the emotional one of preserving my parents/grandparents/etc memories somehow….its hard

  7. Joe Tech says:

    It looked like a good sized place for how you lived at the time and your great grandfather did a good job with it. You’re right, too. If you can come from there to where you are now and be so successful as a writer, the rest of us have no excuse to fail.

  36. Typical immigrant story. The funny thing is, though that life back then may seem hard compared to what we have now, the love, fun and “family” we shared back then cannot compare to all that we have and do now. I’ve tried 5 times now to go “home” but home isn’t like I remembered. great times, good memories.

  51. Rehab that handsome old stone house. You can put plumbing and electricity in it!

    There’s an old stone house in Berks County, Pennsylvania, that my ancestors built in the 1720s. Family still live in it, and there’s a family reunion there every year–I’ve gone twice. Modern conveniences were added as they became common, but the original (very big) fireplace is still there, and we marvel at how short they must have been, judging by how low the doorways are.

    Save your house for your descendants, generations from now.

  52. Mortgage Guy says:

    Very humbling video indeed. Its emotional in a way. We should all remember where we came from and where we are now in life. Life is an on going journey.

    I liked the video.

    I am sure in China they have electricity and water and other comforts and bit different life.

What could you set up to benefit the local needs? Or is that type of thing just not done in China? How about a free asset school, teaching internet, second language, or? What a Great opportunity to create a legacy asset tribute to your family roots & giving others a ‘hand up.’ You do a lot of fabulous stuff.

    I sometimes drive past where I used to live as a child. It bothers me to see how much its changed.

    Sometimes it’s nice to keep childhood memories intact.

  101. I thought you are Korean and not Chinese. I’m half Chinese but I never heard of Chow as a surname before in my elementary and high school years (those were Chinese schools). I don’t have Chinese friends after that. I also thought you are born in Canada and your parents migrated there.

    Anyway nice seeing your photos. It reminded me of my father’s roots.

    I wish I owned the homes that I grew up in. It’s so funny how huge they seem when you’re so young and small. When you go back, they just don’t seem the same. I love child hood memories. I enjoyed looking at your pics there. I love the past.

    Thank you for sharing this, and congratulations on all your success!

    I say you if you have to tear it down, rebuild it as a shelter for homeless people. Think about it, seems like a great idea.
