About Moi

Hello! This blog is about my life in New York through eating, exploring and shopping lots sample sales. I also like to share pictures from my travels which I hope you will enjoy!

 My name is Hsini. The 'H' is silent so people call me Sin or Sini. I am used to both.
Keiko is my nickname from childhood.

I was born in Taipei, grew up in Montréal and now live in New York. I

I am an avid sample sale shopper and a regular contributor for Racked NY

I am also a contributor for CitizenMag and a food reviewer on Tabelog

What else?

During the day, I am a scientist/lab manager and work with the smartest doctors and scientists I have ever met. The lab keeps my mind challenged and puts my education to good use. After work hours, I take off my lab coat, throw on some heels and New York becomes my oyster. I am constantly stimulated by the numerous happenings around the city; including new restaurants and shop openings; concerts, fashion shows and much more! I try to document everything on my blog. 

I have an adventurous soul and am always looking for something new to experience; however I can also be the total opposite and enjoy lounging at home while watching movies until my eyes feel droopy.

I like to seek and grab opportunities as they come. That is why I live by the motto: "Don't think, just do!". I truly live by it day to day. I used to overthink and miss out on many things. It is still a struggle but "just doing" has brought me to the most incredible places, including New York city.

Not everyone can live in a big city like New York so, here I am sharing everything I see through my eyes, what New York is like (just a bit more glossy and prettified). I also love to travel and experience breathtaking views that may be gone in the near future due to human's incredible force of destroying what is naturally beautiful out there.  I hope through my blog, I can inspire one person or a hundred. Things that may seem mundane on a daily basis can be another person's window to life. This is the power of the internet and we're all in it for the good or the bad.
