Life motto, "Gotta try it once".
I love to travel and see the world. When I return to some of my favorite cities, I like to drink hot chocolate at Angelina's in Paris, walk every floor and every isle at Kiddyland in Tokyo, enjoy high tea at Arthur's Lounge in the Oriental Hotel in Bangkok, buy velvet slippers in Burma, walk the streets of New York City, go to hawker centers in Singapore for noodles, eat Jose Stone Crabs in Miami Beach, visit the Golden Palace in Bangkok, listen to the music in the lobby of Hotel Costes in Paris, shop at Jones the Grocer in Sydney, feel the warm sand at Pi Pi Island in Thailand, and enjoy long hikes in Bariloche with my family.
When I am not traveling, I am a full-time mother, wife, blogger and, a restaurant design and development consultant for my company Jenjuice Studio.
