Interview

IF I HAVE A FREE SUNDAY I WOULD SPEND IT… I would start off my Sunday with an awesome brunch, follow by a large size milk tea, then hit a musical performance!

MY MOST MEMORABLE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WAS… in 2016 I went to Europe with my best friend who turned 30 on the second day of our arrival in Paris. I will never forget how happy and excited we were to spend our 30 together! I’m 11 months older than she is, so it was a memorable trip where we were both 30 at the same time. We traveled through Paris, Switzerland, Belgium, Amsterdam, and then London with a tour group for 12 days. We had a blast and took so many photos together!

THE COUNTRY I MOST WANT TO VISIT IS… there are more than one country that I wanted to travel to, but if I really have to choose, I’d say Taiwan! That’s my roots and I haven’t visit my relatives and friend in Taiwan for two years now.

WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY JOB IS… the emotions that I feel between the couple is genuine, even their interactions with their wedding party is so real and tons of fun!

IF I DIDN’T DO THIS FOR A JOB I WOULD… probably go back to school and get a MFA in Photography and teach in universities as an educator since that’s my second dream job.

IF I COULD GIVE NEWLY ENGAGED COUPLES ONE PIECE OF ADVICE IT WOULD BE…enjoy the ride, this is your life-long partner that you chose, you can get through anything together.

I LOVE WHERE I LIVE BECAUSE… I see rolling hills, vast landscape that’s a rarity even in suburban area. I can go to any type of restaurants of my choice within 25 minutes of driving. It’s also 20 minutes away from a domestic airport and about 1 hour away from LAX for destination gigs, I can’t complain!

IF I COULD LIVE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD IT WOULD BE… I’d stay where I am right now, I love my current city a lot!

MY FAVOURITE MOVIE IS? Phantom of the Opera movie in 2005. Best cast ever!

MOST MEMORABLE MEAL I’VE EVER EATEN WAS… when I was in Taipei and had an awesome lunch at Din Tai Fung with my closest relatives, cousins, and family members in December 2018. It was the best time I ever had!

THE PETS I OWN ARE… I never own a pet since my older sister’s crazy dog really scared the heck out of me. He was... an interesting dog with a big personality, let’s just put it this way!
