Okay, you got me. That devolved into an Alanis Morissette song.
But really, I love to laugh about (and at) anything; witty banter is kind of my favorite thing. I'm just looking for genuine, thoughtful people to share experiences with!
Finding humor in things. I might come off as a “serious” at first, but underneath it all, I’m probably chuckling to myself.
Also, I’m not gonna lie – I’m pretty good at baking desserts. When I was younger, I wanted to be a pastry chef. I can make a mean white chocolate mousse tart topped with glazed strawberries.
But really... I’m Asian, which I guess in Miami is a rarity.
Also, I have shiny hair.
More books – Lolita might be one of my favorite novels, and I’m not sure what that says about me. Love in the Time of Cholera is another favorite, and more recently The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen. Anything by Dave Eggars or David Sedaris is usually going to make me pretty happy, too.
Movies – Amelie is just so whimsical and romantique. And the colors are fantastic. The Royal Tenenbaums and Rushmore are two of my favorites from Wes Anderson. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Memento, Dr. Strangelove, Man on Wire, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, 3 Iron, and The Little Mermaid
Shows – I don’t actually have TV right now, but when I did, I liked Top Chef, Man vs. Food (gluttony is gross, I know…), Community, Parks and Rec, New Girl. Arrested Development was also amazing.
Music – I’m into a lot of low-fi, dreamy music these days. Beach House’s Teen Dream hasn’t ever really fallen out of my rotation. Some more recent favorites include Grimes, Chromatics, Youth Lagoon, Phantogram. I still love me some Feist, Grizzly Bear, Cat Power, Neko Case, Beirut, Girls, Mariah Carey
Food – I love it. All of it. Well, most of it. The only thing I don’t like is cilantro, which I really detest. But other than that, I love anything with a little spice (Thai, Korean, Indian). I also think simple combinations (thick tomato slices with buffalo mozzarella, fresh basil, and a tiny bit of balsamic vinegar) can be out of this world delicious.
Drinks – They deserve their own category, right? I really like IPA’s and Belgian beers. La Fin du Monde is really great. Also, gin and tonic is my cocktail of choice and the French press is my coffee style of choice

What makes people tick
How little I know about how the internet actually works
You want to explore some of Miami's art museums, know of any farmer's markets, know of cool outdoors-y things to do around here.
You want to tell me an awesome joke.
