Super Grubby Cooking Show

Super Grubby Cooking Show

I hosted a virtual cooking show with friends and family via webcast. Locally, we say "grubby" to describe food that's very delicious, and a kuishimbo (食いしん坊) in Japanese means someone who really loves to eat. Our Italian-theme menu and lineup: Jay made a Milano-Torino, Yusef made an affogato, and Laura and Andy made a ramp risotto. Jess and Julian from Europe joined too. As we can't travel and we're isolated, I'm connecting friends who love to eat, drink, and cook (and travel!) to share their cooking knowledge, make new friends, and enjoy international exchange in the kitchen.

Park Saeroyi & the Asian Pop Culture Getting Me Through the Pandemic

Park Saeroyi from Itaewon Class, encounters his arch-enemy, the boss' son and bully, Jang Geun-won

I'm going to share all the Asian pop culture -- movies, shows, podcasts, music, and language learning apps & resources -- that's made isolation easier these past 3+ weeks. After a rise in anti-Asian racism, affection for my Asian cultural roots has grown, and now that it's culminated in finishing Itaewon Class, a story about the underdog hero, Park Saeroyi -- the kind of hero we need right now -- I'm ready to share. I'll save my favorite Itaewon Class for the end. I highlighted the shows that affected me the most, and tried not to include too many spoilers...

Women in Technology Japan - 2015 Kickoff Dinner

Last week, I joined a Women in Technology Japan (WITJ) dinner in Roppongi to help kick-off planning for the year ahead. Made up of an international group of women, the members were all longtime residents of Tokyo, who hailed from Australia to Malaysia, and have either engineering backgrounds or hold executive roles at leading information technology or enterprise-level companies.

Before arriving in Japan, it was nearly impossible to find any tech conferences and events in Tokyo where women were visible, especially as keynote speakers. I knew they existed, as many of my female friends in Tokyo work in IT. That's when I googled "women in tech japan" and found an organization working to close that gap. 

日本に来る前にテクノロジー・イベントをインターネットで調べたけどすべて男性の顔しか 出てこなかった。その後、そのギャップを埋めたい女性のグループを見つけた。
