A Girl’s body size and what kind of Guys it attracts

I’m really good at adapting to new environments, and I must say I was a bit embarrased when my body adapted really well to the US. To sum it all up in a nice way, I should just say my lumps started having more volume.

Anyhow, as my body started changing I started seeing changes in the guys who would come and “hit” on me.

When I was thin, Korean guys liked me.

When I was healthy, average sized, American guys started liking me.

When I was plump, Latino guys started liking me.

When i was fat, suddenly black guys started liking me.

But one type of guys that won’t like me is rich Chinese guys, because they like really really thin girls.

I was at Barnes & Nobles picking out some books for presents before Christmas and I bumped into Nick Vujicic, one of the people I respect the most. I’m so glad to know we have something in common - we love books~ Meeting him was like my Christmas present, what more need I say? Let us be grateful for the littlest things in life, and god bless his beautiful wife and baby. All the healthy people out there, let’s give out a helping hand to those in need. Also, He looked so fit and healthy, I couldn’t help but reflect on myself……No more excuses in 2014! All in all, what a great way to end 2013. I love my life a little more, I feel more motivated in life, and I feel like I can do anything.

My meeting with Alexander Wang at his flagship store in Sanlitun/Taikoo Village, Beijing. That’s me in the middle, closer to him :) He was the most charming and passionate person of designers I’ve met. He was energetic and full of life, considering the fact that his assistant told me he was out clubbing all night in Beijing last night. 

What I admired most was he still keeps his Asian beliefs and told me how this brand is a family owned business. He was so chill to chat with, lots of “you know”s, “like”s and OMG”s. I could imagine myself talking with him for days and not get bored at all! This guy knows what he wants, and he always strives to stay true to himself. He has no fake, pretentious, wanna be, imma star act going on. He is always out there trying to be inspired and give inspiration to others. And I like how he jumps between different medias of art, music and fashion to stay motivated.

I always liked Alexander Wang for it’s chic, simple and comfy clothes, especially the texture of his clothes are so nice. 

OH and one inside TIP on how he tests his signature T shirts. He sleeps in them to see if they are comfortable enough and to see how much it stretches, crinkles and what not!

We surround ourselves with books that are literally piling in dust, but indulge ourselves in high tech gear and engage with people through electronic signals

I really like this store, they take up used furniture and pieces of wood and metal, redesign it as a new item and restore its value into them. Cool, chic, vintage and rustic feel to it @restoration hardware. A little too expensive to be put to good use though… They want credit… But still, thumbs up!

At last I watched V for Vendetta with my friend on her big projector at home. I’ve always wanted to watch this but it was ‘not available’ in China. Now I know WHY. I just moved out of China after living there for 9 years if I exclude Hong Kong, which I will because nothing is censored there. I spent 5 years in a Northeastern City called Shenyang and 4 for my undergrad in PKU, Beijing. And now I find myself looking up all the stuff that was banned there and catching up with lost time.

I was feeling crappy after a long day’s work dealing with rich Chinese women. So I was at the hotel lobby waiting and I ended up strolling around the shopping center when I found this! I don’t usually like sweet stuff so this Extra Extra Dark Chocolate ice scream hit the spot for me~ melts in your mouth… Just realized my lipstick stains on the wooden spoon :P

This is what a typical Korean’s meal at home looks like, actually it might be a little better than average but our family love our food. Usually you also have some soup I guess. My mum is a great cook, and because we’ve lived in so many countries, we have a global diet.

The first time I met a Hollywood Star while I was studying in Peking University. Studying there, I felt a lot of closure so I was running about everywhere in Beijing, meeting people, enjoying good food and entertainment, trying to get to know the outside world, trying to get my name out there. I think I experienced every thing you could in Beijing during my university days there. I still remember that day, getting very excited to meet her in person. I never experienced someone glowing, but she did. She was incredibly charming and loving too. I think it had an effect in me, but I still can’t define what.

Why don’t the US coins have numbers on them? It is so hard for a foreigner like me to get used to them. I feel so stupid when I have to ask the person at the counter to fish out the coins for me…
