Mar 2010
I am a short, hyper, fun-loving girl. Born in a distant land, but raised in the great nation of Canada (eh?). I cannot stay in one place for too long, I just love moving around, trying new things, eating, dancing, working out etc. I sometimes scare people with my hyperness, which can be a problem...but they somehow manage.
I am also a downtown-city girl, you can probably catch me just walking aimlessly on a beautiful day downtown, most likely window shopping on Queen Street or something. Oh yeah, I love food and I'm addicted to chocolate.
What is unique that's not in your bio?
I am mix of different Asian nationalities. And my face is not equal, one cheek bone is higher than the other; one eye lid is slightly bigger than the other; I wake up with curly hair one day and the next day it would be straight...the wonders of being mix.
How do you define cool?
Someone who is fun, laied-back, takes life one step at a time and easy-going.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
Hope my brain will work when I sit infront of my computer. And eat.
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
That it focus on various aspects of daily life, and not one specific element. Trend Hunter allows me to express my opinion, explore the world with new trends, and help me improve my writing skills.
What is your favorite trend?
I have too many. I remember the genital pillow one though.
How do you reset to be creative?
I hang out with friends and talk to them. Whenever I have a writer's block or something, I call up my friends and we talk.....and somewhere during the 3 hours long talk, I get my creative side back. My friends and I bounce ideas of each other. Oh, and if I'm REALLY brain dead, I just do Yoga.
What inspires or excites you?
I get excited and jumpy when I see food. I get inspired by just reading, I'm a dork. I rather be spending my Friday evenings in a nice cozy cafe reading than go clubbing.
Predict something awesome for 2020?
Earthlings living on Mars! Okay, maybe not. But we better be living on the moon by then!
