Questions Posed by Lisa

Why did you start blogging?

I wanted to start sharing my homemade skin care experiments.  It just seemed like the best forum to share my ideas and learn from others.

If you could be anywhere in the world now, where would that be?

I could be anywhere, just as long as I’m with my family.

Dark, Milk or white chocolate?

I used to be an exclusive milk chocolate fan.  More recently, I’ve been enjoying dark chocolate more.  Changing tastes?

Shoes or bags?


What’s your profession?

I negotiate for a living.

Favourite colour?


What’s your favourite movie?

Moulin Rouge

Favourite TV Show?

Arrested Development

Favourite food?

Oh — there are so many!  If forced to choose, I’d go with my grandma’s Chicken Curry.  It’s the best!

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in two places.  I spent a good part of my childhood in Malaysia.  I spent the rest of my time growing up in Canada.

What do you want to be when you’ve grown up?

Still trying to figure that out.  If nothing else, I want to be the best mom I can be!
