Another Q&A! You will probably be a bit sick of me this week as I have managed to post 3x (including this post) this week with 2 of those being Q&As. But please hold on a little longer; I will be away in a few weeks and whilst I plan to pre-schedule some posts, I may still be a bit quiet and inactive.
I was nominated by A Little Driftless for this award, so special thanks to her. She tries out a lot of k-beauty products and travels a lot too (I am always jealous of the latter because some of the photos look incredible), so do check her out.
- Thank blogger(s) who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.

Questions I’m Answering:
Do you speak any foreign languages?
Yes, I speak Cantonese fluently at home since my parents speak zero to minimal English. They also sometimes converse in Hakka dialect (a provincial Chinese language) which I am not the best at using though not bad either, but I definitely understand it. I can speak some Mandarin too, but again, understand it better than I can speak it.
I used to study French and in some way, I wish I had continued with it! (I have forgotten quite a lot.)
Favorite country for traveling?
This is a trick question, isn’t it? Haha. It’s hard to say because I have mostly visited one or two places from the countries that I have visited. I do want to go back and visit more of Italy though. (I have only been to Rome and Florence so far!)
If you could live in any other country, which would it be?
Although my family roots are based in Hong Kong, I’m not sure I would choose to live there because the lifestyle is so, so fast-paced and hectic. I wouldn’t mind being based in Germany. I really liked the feel of it when I went to Berlin. 🙂
My most recent one to Berlin? The food was amazing!
What is your perfect pizza?
I don’t eat pizza very often. I like it but it’s not my absolutely favourite like many people. From a young age, I always chose the ham and pineapple topping though!
Least favorite question to answer?
From this list or in general?! I’m going to assume it’s the latter. It’s okay when people ask where I’m from, but I don’t like it when they then ask, “but no, where are you really from?”…it’s rude and could be asked in a much better way.
What do you like most about yourself?
I am extremely patient and take my time with people, whether it’s getting to know them, or if they’re having a bad day etc. Having said that, I like that I’m not an overly serious person but someone who’s quite playful and young-at-heart. Life’s too short to be too serious.
What calms you down when you’re upset?
A hot shower.
Do you have a favorite historical figure?
My history is not very good so I’m not sure that I even have one! However, ever since learning about him in high school, Martin Luther King has always been an inspiration, particularly his “I have a dream” speech which helped with my public speaking project at the time. (I’m pretty sure I got an A- on that project which was a big deal at the time because I was such a quiet individual that I was horrified at the idea of speaking in front of the class!)
What is the best advice you ever received?
In short, don’t compare yourself to others. Comparison is the death of people.
What is your favorite thing to do outside?
I like taking long walks in a large park or at least somewhere close to nature especially if there is no time restraint. That feeling of wandering aimlessly is quite nice.

- Where is the further place that you have traveled to so far, and why?
- If you can acquire the skill of any language fluently, what would it be?
- Do you have any unpopular opinions? (i.e. an opinion that isn’t in agreement with a general population.)
- Do you have a film that you really want to watch, but haven’t got round to watching yet?
- What is your favourite quote? (It can be from a film/book/song/speech etc.)
I have approximately two weeks until I’m off to Hong Kong. (Time goes so quick!) Until then, I will be working hard to put up posts and hopefully pre-schedule some for when I’m away too. Expect some reviews soon!
Until next time, take care. ❤
