My Kind Of Mooncake

Coming from a Chinese family, I was introduced to the tradition of the Mid-Autumn or Mooncake Festival at a very young age. Sometime between August and September, my parents would bring us to annual family gatherings to play the dice game. We’d win snacks and toys back in the early days.

Dressing For Barcelona

It was a busy second day in Barcelona for me. A visit to the Pronovias 50 Exhibit and Pronovias fashion show backstage were on my schedule that day so I wanted to dress all feminine and proper. I was channelling Legally Blonde–pastel edition. If you look closely, my blazer, top and skirt are actually in different shades of […]

Let’s Chase The Sun

I can never stay put in one place for a long time. I think that’s pretty obvious. Every few months or so, I long to travel the world and see something new. This is why I love the “Wrangler Sun Chaser Challenge“–a month long event from April 14 to May 11 across 9 countries in the […]
