I’m super ecstatic that Pride in Taipei occurred during my stay here! I’ve been to Pride in Atlanta and in Chicago and now I get to see Pride internationally — Woot! When I found out about the Pride Parade here, I envisioned floats and floats of hot and scandalously dressed Asian boys throwing free goodies at me. Continue reading “Taiwan Pride 2014”

For those who don’t know me well, I have a small case of OCD. I already don’t like taking baths — I’m a shower girl, so getting in a hot pool filled with half naked strangers is something I always dread, especially not knowing where their bodies have been prior.

I know it’s kind of ironic because currently, I’m doing all of these water activities and actually was a competitive swimmer in high school. However, you can’t have YOLO as your anthem if you can’t face your fears every now and then!!! So cheers to adrenaline!
Talk about a bargain! You know it’s in my Asian genes to always get more and always, always pay less. Don’t judge! You know it’s a good day when that happens. Continue reading “Surf n’ Turf”
Lady with a baby in the water: “How far out are the reefs?”
Me: “It’s like 2 feet away, really close.”
Lady: “No really, how close is it?”
Me: “Look lady, if you want your infant to get cut up by the reefs then take 2 more steps out.” –Ok, I didn’t say this part, but I should have… Continue reading “Snorkeling with Friends”
Disclaimer: I did not finish this hike, because I had too many brushes with death on the way up. YOLO does not apply here. Continue reading “On the Cusp of Dying”
Let it burn! If burning is not something you love to do while on the beach, then please put sunscreen on – ESPECIALLY on your shins! I suffered greatly. I now have two red hot dogs for legs.
