Favorite Thing About Taiwan:  The food!  Nothing beats the street stalls or night markets. I could easily eat stinky tofu (臭豆腐), oyster pancake (蚵仔煎), and minced pork rice (滷肉飯) for days!!

Favorite NYC Neighborhood:  I love the West Village because of its picturesque charm. That, and I’m a sucker for cute coffee shops and exposed brick.  And who knows, maybe one day I’ll run into Chandler Bing at Central Perk.
