About Me: Panamanian by birth, Chinese by heritage, American by choice. I generally don't trust people who think of Food as Fuel. I love fine dining, street food, and everything in-between. Hell, the only point of exercise is that it allows you to eat more. I behemently believe salt water cures all. From colds to bad moods, there is nothing that liberal amounts of salt water administered twice a day won't fix. Diving, snorkeling, or just hanging out by the beach are all fine ways of spending a day or a lifetime. If I start getting too pruny, hiking is a good alternative. Some say my hiking started on a trip to Hawaii, but I maintain I didn't get hooked until that day I went wandering around my old neighborhood (Glendale, CA) looking for a shady tree to read under. I can't remember the book, but the that trail is still a favorite to this day. LA trails are close and provide a quick stress relief, a good workout, and a chance to reconnet with nature.
