I love to write. I love to travel. I get bored easily and can't seem to finish books. I'm a semi-vegan/vegetarian/pescatarian, but find it extremely difficult to adhere to a "diet" because I love cheese, ice cream, sashimi and pork chops. A local girl at heart, I sometimes crave for rice and stew luau in places that do not and would not carry them. After studying for my master's degree in journalism in Chicago, and experiencing one ("warm") winter of 20 degrees, I quickly moved back home where I can now wear a T-shirt, shorts and rubber slippers without getting a second glance. I can't imagine why I ever thought I'd live anywhere else. I have one brother, two very supportive parents and a lot of cousins and uncles and aunties. Unless I'm off attempting to jet-set across the world, you'll find me on any given weekend hiking up a steep trail on the windward side, doing laundry (then yoga), shopping at Costco with my boyfriend or trying to read my pile of unread books.
