I do not have a favorite book but I do have a favorite manga series called MeruPuri by Matsuri Hino.
Painting, drawing, anything related to art. I love to travel and discover new places, sights, scenes, and experiences. I’m also quite fond of quaint and aesthetically-pleasing cafés, binge-watching TV shows, and going out with friends and catching up over good food.
- I am half-Mongolian and half-Chinese.
- I once bicycled 136 km in one day when I was volunteering in Taiwan during the summer.
- My favorite place is Japan. I grew up watching anime such as Inuyasha, Card Captor Sakura and reading manga. I have been to Japan twice in the past year and I’m planning for my next trip back.
