Autumn in NYC

Alex and I spent almost two weeks of September in New York, and we just happened to catch the transition from summer into fall. Of course it would have been nice to know that would happen before we left, because we had zero rain-appropriate clothing, but alas. We still had such a wonderful time, both…

Cincinnati

To complete our first of two Midwest tours this summer, I went to Cincinnati for a week to visit my mom.

Singapore

Singapore! I wanted to take a little trip with my mom, and Singapore seemed like the perfect choice. We could easily get there from Taiwan since we were already planning to go there in February, and it’s a safe, easily accessible, English and Chinese-speaking country. Plus, with the runaway success of Crazy Rich Asians, Singapore…
