My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm Melissa. I'm a student at a (local) culinary school.

I'm either in school or at my apprenticeship place, so I don't have much time to myself. When I do, I'm reading, sleeping, or texting.

A lot of my time also goes to running. Not as much as before, but I keep the habit.

You can talk to me about almost anything! I think a lot about gender and sexuality, class, race, and disability; and how they play out in the food business - especially food trends, fine dining, and culinary traditions/education.

I'm trying very hard to level up my Chinese, and learn Cantonese.

I've always, always tested INTP.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
At work, I have to master the pizza. At home, I'm planning a roasted duck.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Eyeballing weight and volume.

I also make really good char siew and braised duck!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm very tall - 5'6", and 5'9" with my favorite heels on.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I admire Anthony Bourdain's writing - one day I hope to be half as funny. Other food writers I love dearly - Amanda Cohen, Scott Haas, Michael Ruhlman, Jonathan Dixon. But above all these, I highly recommend Eileen Yin-Fei Lo, few people write about Chinese cooking in English with that rigor. Her writing is important to me because I'm particularly interested in Chinese cooking.

I listen to everything, but I lean towards rock like Fall Out Boy. My coworkers only listen to Chinese pop, so I do have a Chinese playlist. A lot of it is 五月天.

Basically, I would be 重口味 (literally, heavy palate). My favorite foods are all herb and spice heavy, or very salty and rich - lamb briyani, yogurt rice, palak paneer (paneer any way), moussaka, the burrata and basil oil with Turkish bread from Moosehead Bar, falafel and tahini sauce, 卤肉饭, 咖啡排骨, century eggs, sardine murtabak. Also I'm pretty sure my last meal will be Hainanese curry rice - just the curry, just the rice.

Favorite spice: cumin.
Dislike: cardamom
Favorite herb: coriander, curry leaves, sweet basil.
Dislike: tarragon
Favorite vegetable: eggplant, winter squash
Dislike: bittergourd
Favorite meat: pork ribs, chicken wings, lamb and mutton
Dislike: Beef, most shellfish, raw fish, foie gras
Favorite grain: rice
Dislike: Quinoa (pls no)
Favorite cuisine: Chinese (any region), Indian (any region), Malaysian
Dislike: Korean, Japanese
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My Chinese knife. Running gear, Kindle, MacBook Air, phone, coffee.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Work. I find myself worrying about where I'll be in a few years.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working hard. Friday nights are busy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a history with an eating disorder (anorexia). I was fourteen, and had a short relapse when I was eighteen. I've since recovered well.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You'd like to chat/hang out. I'm swamped with work every day and I'm not looking for anything in particular. I just really need more friends. And beer, I like sweet beer.

Also. If you have the patience to teach me Cantonese, please!

Please don't ask me to cook for you. Be more original leh.
