HELLO! : )
The world really doesn’t need another blog. I have one anyway.
About Yes, My Little Dumpling
Waaaaay back in the day, I used to daydream about opening up a small Asian grocery with a cute cafe up the front.
I would whack dinky cutesy labels on the groceries which explained everything in English (or enchanting delightful Engrish). I would serve hot drinks in mismatched china. I would NOT make use of flourescent lighting.
This never made it into real life of course, but the name stuck. I wanted to call the grocery/cafe “Yes, my little dumpling”.
Yes, you’re supposed to imagine an older gentleman saying that in a placating tone of voice.
Yes, I sometimes wonder how “my little dumpling” was ever viewed as a term of endearment.
and yes. Yes. It does make me think that a human “little dumpling” would be short and round.
Welcome to Yes, my little dumpling. I hope you enjoy your stay.
(someone just sent me this after the site was launched)
I just kinda fell into becoming a digital nomad.
I earned my degree, I worked in advertising, media and marketing, and then I joined a startup called Envato. Envato is one of those startups you hear about that almost doesn’t sound real – they encourage you to travel 3 months a year, in order to empathise with their almost 50% remote workforce.
When my partner found a job in Vietnam, I said, “what the heck, let’s do this!”. We moved, and now I’m a digital nomad and I’ll be staying this way for at least another 3 years.
I’ll be freelancing, consulting, eating, bumbling and maybe even teaching. I think it’ll be fun.
