Put it out there!

My mother and I. Across the Bund in Shanghai.
Short holiday with fam - explains my joy.
Window shopping - one of my loves.
Me with irises. Springtime.
My preferred shot - noticed but not really.

These are a few pictures of me.

I prefer to work behind the scenes.  Being lost in my own zone of intense thinking, writing away, observing life, asking people questions and listening intently or just happy creating – those are my happy places. 

I prefer to let my work do the talking.  Whether it is sharing a gift, a skill or a piece of knowledge, I am most at ease in letting them speak for me.

But like most people, I am often curious about who the person is behind the stuff.  

Here are 8 casual or just funny things about me.

  1. I’m willing to give things a try even if I’m not sure if I would be good at it.  
  2. I knew two languages before I turned 5 (which I no longer speak: Cantonese and Bahasa Sunda).
  3. I failed my driving test 3 times on two continents and still prefer riding the subway and the public bus than driving a car or taking a cab.
  4. I love all kinds of noodles and pasta but when it comes down to it, I still count Char Kuay Teow, a type of stir-fried noodle, my top favorite.
  5. I have lived in 5 different countries and they have all influenced my designs.
  6. My favorite national park is Grand Teton and one of my fondest memories is hiking a trail there with my family before 7 am.
  7. I only heard about Kanye in 2019 and only found out what Selena Gomez looks like in 2021.  She has such a sweet spirit!
  8. My husband volunteered me when a seminar leader once asked if anyone had trouble catching a ball.  I have since learned the trick to do so but please don’t ask me to catch one.  Once is enough.

Joy can be simple, no matter what, on a daily basis.

Go ahead,  tend to something lovely.  Create beautiful things.  Share that joy of yours.
