I’m a pet bird living in a cage since the moment I was born. I never had to worry about food. My owner loves me so much and I’m so glad to sing for him every day. One day, he left the cage open — it was the first time. I was curious about the outside world but also didn’t want to leave my owner. Therefore, I promised myself that I wouldn’t leave for good. I would just take a quick look and be back to the cage in no time.
I jumped off the edge of the cage and…
I haven’t come across a book that speaks to the notion of power and stereotypes as spot-on as Pachinko by Min Jin Lee in a while.
My work friend introduced this book to me a few weeks ago, saying it’s worth a read. I’ve never been a historical fiction lover my whole life so I was a bit skeptical. The journey of swimming through the words and pages of this masterpiece, however, remarkably left my heart pounding hours after finishing the book.
The story revolves around four generations of Koreans immigrating to Osaka and residing in parts of Japan from…
Have you ever come across a “weird” video on YouTube showing a random person eating and smacking their lips in front of the camera, but deep down you actually quite like it?

她那時候在經營一個Foodie帳戶，Followers人數足以讓她的帳戶名字旁增加了一個官方認證的剔號。我每次打開Instagram的程式時，她的新美食照片永遠都是第一個跳進我眼簾內的更新 — 前天試了日式關西風醬油拉麵，昨天嚐了墨西哥 Tacos al Pastor，今天下午吃了高檔次廣東點心。精緻的蝦餃上還點上蟹籽，看上去晶瑩剔透的 。單單盯著她的更新，我已垂涎三尺，恨不得馬上離開苦悶的4點lecture，跑至她帖子上tag了的地點一試其美食，查證實物是否與照片上一樣令人饞涎欲滴。
It’s not surprising seeing young girls and boys wearing Hard Rock Cafe t-shirts without showing any liking tendency to rock-n-roll.

I stayed in Washington D.C. for almost a year and D.C. is, by far, one of my favorite cities in the United States.
I don’t think so. Though D.C. scales smaller than a dot on the continental American map, it’s a stunning place where delicious cuisine, sports clubs, and a wide range of recreational activities are found. If you are planning to travel along the East Coast and D.C. happens to be on your itinerary, save this article right now as it might come in handy.
I’m an Asian-film lover. Tokyo Story in 1953 by Oza Yasujiro was one of my very first studied Asian films in college several years ago.
Thoughts of it still linger in my mind.
The 1950s was a post-war period of social turmoil and uncertainties, especially in Asia. The wounds and traumas brought by wars drove people to re-inspect their lives and families. Ozu Yasujiro from Japan well-presented human intrinsic values and moralities to the big screen.
Tokyo Story in 1953 targeted discussions of human relations. It brings a plot line which a Japanese family is stuck in a dilemma between…

I am a huge fan of lululemon Athletica, a Canadian yoga-athletic sport brand.
