Joy

IMG_5201I am a contradiction in terms – no one culture to call my own, no one place to call home. I grew up Japanese, fell in love with Indonesia, have Spanish/Chinese/Malay running through me, and my beloved adopted city is San Francisco. I write about food, travel, culture, politics, and living in my world where my West always merges with my East.

I am an Asian American…who also happens to be a soccer mom, full-time corporate bee, and huge volunteer advocate…who loves to shop at both Target and the Coach Store…l-o-v-e-s pork belly (I wrote pork belly) and maple glazed bacon donuts (not just any ~ Dynamo Donuts ,please)…who considers Japan her home but feels Manila pulsing through her veins…who likes to think of herself as an intellect yet not so secretly obsesses over Pinterest.
