VietnamEazy on Amazon’s Hot New Release List since July 1, 2016

Posted on Updated on

I am so excited to see VietnamEazy on Amazon’s Hot New Release List since the official launch on July 1, 2016.

Truthfully, I expected it to hit the list on the first couple of days due to friends and family’s support, but I never expected it to maintain top 5/6 on the list for so long.

VietnamEazy is also in Literary Affairs Summer Reading Recommendation List “Books for the Beach.”

In addition to that, VietnamEazy has been featured in 4 publications including the San Jose Mercury News, The Santa Cruz Sentinel, Metro News, and Silicon Valley One World.

Thank you for your overwhelming support.

Chopsticks Alley

Posted on

From my love of food, I started a Facebook Group called Chopsticks Alley in August of 2014.

Chopsticks Alley became more than a social group formed by people who are passionate about all things related to Asian foods.  It became a group who gives back to the less fortunate in the San Francisco Bay Area.  Not only do we enjoy sharing our food photos, meals, events, and recipes online, we also give back.  I am very proud of our Chopstickers!

“Pull up a chair. Take a taste. Come join us. Life is so endlessly delicious.”

Here is a little information about our group:

“There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”
― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman

MISSION STATEMENT: Chopsticks Alley is a world wide community of Lovers of Asian Foods. Our mission is to provide a space for everyone to share their ASIAN ONLY meals, restaurant reviews, recipes, home made dishes, things we are craving, etc through photos and videos.

GOALS: We promote supporters of our charity mission to feed the hungry by creating wow events. We strive to always provide a friendly space for our members to foster camaraderie through the sharing of food, one meal at a time. Because life is simply delicious.

Conflict is the Beginning of Consciousness…Sharing my thoughts on love.

Posted on Updated on

conflictThe biggest challenge for me is to give love even when, I believe the person doesn’t deserve it.  I’m not talking about any specific love, but about all love.  Between family members, between lovers, and between friends. We are not always loveable, at times, we are downright mean and selfish.  Yet in those moments we still expect our love ones to continue to love us. I did some research on this topic and stumbled upon this website.  I think it provides the best logical explanation on how it works and the best way to overcome the “craziness” between lovers/spouses. “Have you ever suspected your spouse of having two personalities — one that is caring and considerate and one that seems impossible to get along with? I’m sure you’ve not only noticed, but you’ve probably been horrified by the impossible one.” This sentence made me laugh because at times it seems so true. The art of negotiation seems to be the main theme to resolve relationship conflicts.
