Da jia hao – hello everyone.

As a kid, I thought being Chinese was just about food.

It wasn’t until I visited China, did I realize what it truly meant to be Chinese — from a culture with more than 5,000 years of history – rich in language, arts and of course food.

I’m proud of my heritage every day, but especially this time of year.
