About Me


order a full meal at McDonalds in perfect Mandarin


I'm a Korean-American currently living and working in China.


Stop making lists to filter out potential friends and mates. Stop expecting so much from friends and mates. Learn to really forgive your friends and mates.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Almost died of heat stroke during a long, loner day-hike. I was on the brink of death but was saved by a cherry tree sent from the ghost of George Washington. Really.

Teach, Learn, Share

I know how to make Vietnamese Pho.
