My self-summary
Good at cooking up stuff.
What I’m doing with my life
Saving the planet…ok not really. Making you gain 20lbs...I work on chocolates that tear a hole in your wallet. Really, it's that good! Ok I lied. It's pretty darn good, but probably pricier than it should be, but..ummm, they look so pretty -- does that count?
I’m really good at
Being a good friend.
Finding the right color
New business ideas that won't work
chocolate chip cookies
White Sangria with lychee
Laughing at inappropriate moments
The first things people usually notice about me
Generous smiles -- Tourists like to stop me for directions.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I'm somewhat bipolar in my tastes (I like non-fiction psychology/neurology books but will also then read chick literature to mix it up) - The Paradox of Choice, by the way, is excellent.

Movies: French films, Memento, Almadovar films, Adaptation, Matrix. Haven't seen a good one lately. Actually, Boyhood was pretty good.

Music: Phoenix, The Strokes, Ra ra riot, Stereophonics, Walk the moon, Bruno mars, John Legend, Adele, Sara Bareiles, Sia, 80s new wave; but I enjoy all kinds. Please introduce me to some new tunes!

Food: I like fine dining more so for the atmosphere and presentation. But I enjoy 'real food' in the form of homecooked meals and ethnic restaurants. Also I'm Asian so at some point I would like to drag you to Queens for the real deal...
The six things I could never do without
My iphone/ipod (so trite) but I love being close to my music. Plus it makes my subway ride much more pleasant. Oh and it helps me run longer. Thank you Mr. Steve Jobs.

Good coffee/lattes -- sometimes I wish I lived in Italy just to get my mittens on some great cappuccino. I like the kind with elegant foam with the swirls

Goose down pillows/comforter -- I've learned you cannot skimp on the comforts of home and a good night's rest. If laying my head on the equivalent of several gooses' (geese's?) feather bums does the trick, I accept.

Friends/Family - Laughing around a food fest. It's all good!

Water -- living by a coast, driving by the Pacific Highway, enjoying Tulum, Mexico, even the good 'ol Jersey Shore.

Glasses/contacts - blind as a bat without 'em
I spend a lot of time thinking about
umm, do I have to answer this? That's private. sheesh.
On a typical Friday night I am
Dinner with friends. Hanging out with my sister. Browsing a bookstore. Passed out in bed after a tough week!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I might hog the covers and push you off the bed….lo siento :)
