November in a nutshell: turned 38, my plates were on the front page of a newspaper, and I am almost done with my first K-drama ever.
I booked this trip back in March, so we took our time planning our itinerary. Lucky for me, I was traveling with my good friend Mimi, who is probably the most organized person I know. We listed the places we wanted to go to and built our trip around that. It was only my first
Late last year, I celebrated my 33rd birthday in Singapore visiting one of my favorite people and seeing Taylor Swift on her 1989 World Tour. It wasn’t my first time but there were still tons of places on my list back then that I didn’t get to see. This time around, we tried to squeeze

When I turned 16, I had a party at my house. My mom cooked food and had them lined up on a long table in these fancy-looking chafing dishes. All my friends came and we ended up walking to the park right before everyone left. This became some sort of tradition since. I’d celebrate my
