Ethnicity Tag ♡

Hey guys! I’m finally back after not blogging for the longest time, but I promise I’m back for real and will be blogging more often now!

I have also made a YouTube channel not long ago. If you would like to check it out, just click on this link : http://bit.ly/29LuuzF

So, recently I have been seeing a lot of “Tag” type videos and blog posts and I thought that was soo interesting and that I would share with you guys my very own ethnicity tag!

1. What is your ethnicity?

I am 100% Chinese. I wish I could be more interesting and say that I am a mix, but no. I was instead blessed with just one ethnicity.

2. When was the last time you visited your country?

I live in Canada and have never flown to China or Hong Kong before, but I have been to Asia once when I went to Thailand with my sister and friends! I do hope to travel to China in the near future though!

3.  Name one ethnic food you enjoy the most?

This is the toughest question to answer because I can’t pick just one. Hmmm… I would have to say wonton soup and fried dumplings would definitely be at the top of my list, but I also enjoy eating just plain rice. Barbecue pork is also really good!

4. Name one household item that best represents your culture.

My rice cooker..HAHAHAHA Okay, I’ll be serious, but I do think that when you see a rice cooker, you imagine a happy lil’ asian fam 🙂 I would say my gold jewelry case because the design on it seems very traditional and reminds me of the dynasty decade.

5. What part of your country are you and your family from?

Like I said earlier, I have never been to China so I was obviously born elsewhere. I was born in Canada and grew up in Vancouver, B.C. Just a couple years ago, I moved back to Saskatchewan with my family. My parents did grow up in China though. My mom is from a town near Hong Kong.

6. What is your favourite ethnic music/ song? 

I don’t really listen to any Chinese music unless my parents are playing it, but I do listen to both Cantonese and Mandarin singers when I am looking for Chinese music to listen to on YouTube or my SoundCloud

7. Can you speak the language of your ethnicity?

Yes, I can speak Chinese, but not as fluently as before. I don’t speak as much Chinese as I did before with my parents and I basically go to a school with no other Chinese other than me. Guess I need to go back to watching Hong Kong dramas..

8. Do you have an ethnic name?

Yes! I do in fact have a Chinese name. It is written as 梁嘉儀 and pronounced lerng-ga-yee. This is not written on my birth cirtificate, but this is the name my teachers used to call me back when I was in Chinese School, and sometimes with my relatives as well.


So this was a very short, but sweet blog post just to let you guys know that yes, I am in fact still alive!

If you have any suggestions as to what kind of blog post you would like to see me write next, feel free to comment down below your ideas and I’ll be sure to check them out!

Until next time, hope you all have a beautiful and very magical day!

Some people are old at 18 and some are young at 90. Time is a concept that humans created.

A New Year’s State of Mind

Hello Everyone!

Is it too late to hop on the bandwagon? Happy New Year to all!

Apologies for not writing in a while.  I’ve been so busy with midterms and cheer practice (we’re competing in our first competition of the season in five weeks!) these past couple weeks that I couldn’t even get one blog post up, but here it is!

Come the New Year, also comes with the mindset of starting a fresh!

Earlier this month, I was scrolling through the web and I came across a blog written by Melissa Colleret (a life coach), posted via the Lululemon blog.

The blog was published on June 24, 2015, but I still find it relevant. It talks about one’s wish to find their purpose in life. To clarify what the heart desires, Colleret asks the reader six questions. These questions really gave me a lot to think about: my current habits, things I’m (beyond) thankful for, and of course my future goals and aspirations.

I took out a pen and answered these questions in my notebook, but I chose to only post a few of my answers..

What would you do if you has six months to live?

  • travel and see as much of the world as I can; to visit East Asia (particularly Seoul, South Korea, Shanghai, and Hong Kong) and the United Kingdom

What would your 90-year-old tell you to do?

  • Stay true to what you believe in (even if it’s hard at times).
  • Don’t rush into things; instead, take things one step at a time.
  • Will it matter in 2 months? If not, forget about it.

What can you give yourself more credit for?

  • Joining cheerleading
  • Embracing the idea of being short (well, that is most of the time HAHAHA)
  • Staying in school!
  • Getting a job

How would you be behaving if you were the best at what you do? (This is a very vague question, but I will answer it anyways.)

  • teach others that are struggling (tips & tricks)
  • If I were a human pretzel, I’d stretch more often to keep that figure. (as in cheerleading)

What do people thank you for?

  • Being helpful
  • Compliments
  • Advice I had given them
  • For being a friend 🙂

What is it time for in your life?

  • Focus on my school work
  • Volunteering some of my time in the community (Special Olympics)

Now, what about you? How would you have answered these questions differently? I advise you to also take out a pencil and a piece of paper (or notebook if you will) and write down what your goals would be. This is important because it’s so much easier to know what’s on your mind if you have it down on paper to read and reflect on.

I’d really like to thank Melissa Colleret, along with Lululemon for writing that article because I think that a lot of people would read it and appreciate the words you’ve said. It has really given me a new perspective on how I see the life that I live. So again, thank you for opening up my eyes to new things!

Have a beautiful, magical, wonderful year!

P.S. I’m pretty sure the mail man is fed up with delivering all my clothing orders every month.
