1. I'm 5'8", 120 lbs, Chinese, born and lived in CA for my whole life.
2. I've been to all 50 states, parts of Mexico and Canada, China, Hong Kong, Thailand. I used to travel a lot, but I haven't taken a vacation in at least 3 years - I've been too busy
3. I am the queen of clean. I love cleaning and organizing. I pretty much have OCD and I'm germaphobic. I'm also afraid of heights, but I'm ok if I'm strapped down to something (like when I'm on a roller coaster).
4. I can understand cantonese, but will only speak it when ordering food or if my life depended on it.
5. I love cars and basically anything with a motor. I love playing with them, driving them, and sometimes just touching them. I just got my motorcycle license
6. I am basically "one of the guys" among my friends; although to people that just meet me, I appear to be a girlie girl.
7. I am really quiet when I want to be. I'm soft spoken and I don't like to repeat myself, so I'll talk when I have something to say. Although a lot of the things I say are pretty sarcastic, and some people would rather have me stay quiet than talk I get annoyed really easily also.
8. I am one of the shorter ones of the family, so when people say I'm tall, I don't see it. I don't think of myself as tall, but as normal height. I didn't grow until my sophomore year of high school, I was a little less than 5' then, and then grew another inch or so in college.
9. I LOVE shopping but I can't shop with people, especially people who take too long shopping. When I shop, I get in, if I like something, I get it and go. My record is 4 malls in 2 hours (the malls were about 30 miles apart). When I shop, I'm like a girl on a mission; don't get in my way
10. I love designer clothes. I will spend $200 on a jacket, jeans, or a handbag that fits me perfectly and looks great on me. But when it comes to everyday items, I'm frugal. Surprisingly I'm not a shoe person, I can't spend over $100 on shoes because I wouldn't wear it in fear that I'll get it dirty and because I usually just pick the shoes that are closest to the door. I am a handbag person; I have a huge collection of Kate Spade handbags. Even though I spend a lot on clothes, I have a plain jane type of style. Kind of like how Lorelai on the Gilmore Girls dresses.

1. i am 6 feet, about 225 pounds.
2. i have blue eyes that color shift to aqua in certain light, like if i wear a green shirt.
3. i have always had pets (currently 5 cats and 2 parrots), and wanted to be a veterinarian when i was young.
4. the other job i'd always wanted when i was young was being a park ranger, or something like what sierra cook does.
5. i almost never feel cold.
6. i have a very good memory, especially for numbers. for instance, i know all of my credit card numbers, bank accounts, and drivers license number.
7. i can tell you what day of the week it was if you give me a date in history. (a great bar room trick).
8. i can talk my way in or out of, or spin almost anything. everyone says i should have been a lawyer or politician. it makes my wife crazy.
9. i can't wait to teach my son everything i know.
10. i don't believe that god is a seperate being, but the sum of all of our life forces put together. when we're born, it's like a precipitation of a mixture of life forces. when we die, we go back into the mix. (that's why some people remember previous lives. also the reason to be good to each other. all of us are equal in all ways, and eventually become one with each other again).

1. I'm 5'6" 145 lbs, blonde with grey/green eyes
2. My whole family is from "somewhere else" - parents born in South Africa, sister born in Zambia, me in northern Manitoba (Thompson) Canada - grew up in Canada and all over the USA (as a kid we always seemed to have an apartment in Michigan) and South Africa (13 schools!). At one point we all had different passports - my dad became a US citizen in '76, mom stayed South African, my sister had Zambian citizenship, and I've held on to my Canadian passport. So I guess I love hearth home and family more than anything else, just want to put down roots and stay put. I hate moving.
3. My husband, Neil (born in Zimbabwe) and I have three - no four daughters, Jessica (17), Roseanne (19) & Caroline (21) all born in South Africa. Shelby (5) our golden retreiver was born in New Jersey.
4. I love to sing, and used to sing in a dance band in South Africa (The Tomboys) and before that in a no name band in a slightly sleazy bar called the Rose & Shamrock (but we packed the place out on Fridays and Saturday nights!). Now I sing in a not so good, but very well intentioned Episcopal church choir.
5. For more than 20 years I've worked on/with computers - as a programmer, an analyst, systems analyst, writer of technical documents, you name it. When I started, we used punch cards. Now I'm mainly a "developer" using (Oracle PL/SQL / Unix & all that) and other bits and pieces. In truth I'm just a general dogsbody, grateful to be working! Decided that I don't actually really like electronic gadgets after all.
6. I'm slowly building up my knowledge of wines.
7. I love to cook, but that wasn't always so. I once tried to feed 15 people for New Year's day - main dish being a 3 lb chicken. Was mad at my mom for pointing out that it probably wouldn't be enough.
8. Cape Town is my favourite city in the whole world, next after that, New York.
9. Probably due to all those years of moving, I read a lot - it saved me from being really lonely as a kid. If there's nothing around & I'm desperate I'll even read labels, wrappers.
10. I chew pencils.

1. I'm 5' 5" if I remember not to slouch.
2. Am a 2nd-generation Chinese, born and raised in the Philippines
3. Grew up tri-lingual: English, Tagalog, Chinese. My French is intermediate. And am now learning Thai.
4. I only started cooking and baking three years ago after taking up a 6- month crash course for chefs. Never touched the oven before then.
5. I've seen the Godfather 20 times.
6. I'm a Francophile -- love everything French (history, language, food). I spent a month of immersion in France. I'll be back for longer.
7. I've literally touched a cloud and seen a rainbow in full circle. My husband is a sport pilot and flies a Cessna. I was his first passenger. People said I was very brave but I assured them it wasn't that:-)
8. I've travelled to most of Asia. Been a frequent visitor to North America.
9. I still harbor my childhood secret desire to be a lounge singer.
10. My most unforgettable meal was dinner with DH at Taillevant (the famous 3-star Michelin rated restaurant in Paris). The food and the service were absolute perfection. To think that we went in with very high expectations. (The prices were out of this world too! But it's definitely worth doing at least once in your life.)

1. My beloved only child died on March 12, 2004. He was only 23 years old. Shane fell from a balcony at his apartment complex & hit his head. He was found the next morning.
2. My most prized possession is a handbeaded necklace that my 16 year old cousin gave me. There are letter blocks that spell out "Shane's Mom" surrounded by blue beads.
3. Cooking is my passion. Shane & I shared the passion. It's what I do when I am not working or sleeping. I love to feed people more than anything else.
4. I am between 5'8" & 5'9". My husband (Seth) is between 6'9' & 6'10"
5. I am 48. Seth is 33. This is my 3rd & final marriage. We married in 1997.
6. I am "retiring" from breeding & showing Birman cats. Besides our cats, we have 4 large parrots.
7. I have a huge collection of cookbooks - between 300 & 400 is my best guess.
8. I was born & raised in the heart of Lancaster County, PA. I have lived in CT for the past 9 years & I hate New England. I came up here for Seth.
9. For my last meal, I would ask for a white pizza with tomatoes from Olympic Pizza in Norwich, CT. & medium hot wings from Hooters, with celery & blue cheese.
10. Besides cooking I love to read fiction & take naps! I prefer mysteries & comedic mysteries are my very favorite. Janet Evanovich is a favorite author of mine.
I'm all about the food!
