Are you working in Hong Kong? Yes. I am currently working on my first cook book based on all things healthy, nutritious and delish baked in the kitchen. This is after I successfully launched HK’s first completely Gluten Free 100% uncontaminated bakery, Choice Healthy Foods, which I recently sold before giving birth to my third. I also have a successful and well-viewed blog which is currently being relaunched and I write articles for magazines.
What brought you to Hong Kong and why have you stayed? My parents in 1984. HK is home.
What time of day do you check Hong Kong Moms? Usually after I post I’ll have a browse.
What posts do you comment on and why? Those that need help or suggestions for certain things like doctors, places to go for lunch, suggestions on holidays or what to do for a kids birthday. So many mums have such wonderful helpful suggestions.
What is the best thing you have learned from Hong Kong Moms? That Hong Kong Moms can be very resourceful, especially when trying to raise funds, gather items for charity, or when someone has lost a phone or wallet.
What is your favorite Hong Kong Moms post? Raising items for children in need after the Japan earthquake.
What do you ask Hong Kong Moms? Everything from where to find a distressed wooden table to opinions on the best place to have brunch (this changes often as new places open and old places change their offers).
What is your biggest Hong Kong fave? I love that HK is very easy to do things, set up businesses, travel, and get your needs met quite quickly.
And frustration? The crowds. I honestly don’t do well in crowds, which is probably why I enjoy living in the New Territories.
What is your craziest Hong Kong experience? I will never get bored of enjoying meeting people who are always one degree of separation. The other day we met new neighbors who happen to be my sister and brother-in-law’s friends. Small world.
Does anyone ever recognize you or your name from Hong Kong Moms? Yes quite often.
Have you met any friends through Hong Kong Moms? Yes, I’ve met many friends.
Which Hong Kong Mom would you like you to see featured next? Jacqueline Renee Cohen. She’s one of my mentors. Extremely kind hearted, passionate and fair and has also made learning about home made probiotics fun, easy and tasty! And Louise Kane Buckley, one of my oldest friends in HK and also the spark behind me getting in the kitchen and walking into a healthier lifestyle. She’s an amazing naturopathic doctor amongst many other talents.
