About Me

Living and recording the life of a 30-something dilettante.

silhouetteI’m a native Californian who found myself in New York City in 2008 after a three-year stint in the Great White North. I came to New York for work. I stay for love. I miss Mexican food and warm weather without humidity. Somehow I survived the NYC dating scene. I don’t think winter is necessary to appreciate spring and summer. I wander around the world searching for new experiences.

Follow me as I keep up with New York City through lifting heavy, running fast, and eating off small plates (I don’t eat a little. I just eat a lot at small plate restaurants) and with doses of arts, theatre, and science. I’m a living breathing NYC cliche (foodie Asian female marriedย to a Jewish banker (Ben) and we bought a house in Brooklyn). I’m now a “mommy” to an adorable smooth fox rat terrier puppy named Bandit.

I am a member of the Run Team for Simple Hydration and a race ambassador for 2017 Rutgers Unite Half Marathon, and a blogger for Salty Running.

I am not interested in increasing readers or viewers or improving my site’s SEO. Neither do I care about my online reputation. If you are selling services of this nature, please do not contact me.

It’s a good life.

  1. As you know I think you live an exciting life and I was wanting to nominate you for the Liebster Blog Award. Being the polite Canadian, I wanted to ask if you were cool with that first.

  2. Cali runnerchicks, yea!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Even if you’re in NY now, CA is in your heart…hehe. So funny, love that you clarified about the small plates thing because I was about to question…now my question is what is NY’s obsession with small plates??? #runnersEAT

    • NYers in their 20s and 30s tend to be foodies. I was a foodie long before I was a runner. We like to try several different things. Now that I run, I plow through several small plates. I’ll never forget the time when a waiter told me he lost count of how many plates he brought me. Not the table. Just me.

  3. Hello! Nice to meet you ๐Ÿ™‚ So glad you commented on my blog, I look forward to supporting you in your journey from now on ๐Ÿ™‚ From one east coast-er to another ๐Ÿ™‚
