  • How I Live More Minimal

    Ever since I first moved out on my own at 20 years old, I have been learning the lesson of stuff.

    Growing up in a Vietnamese household my comfort food was pho, fried rice, and the ever delicious and salty instant noodles (Mimi brand please!). It wasn’t until I was 13 and at a friend’s house that I tried Kraft’s Macaroni and Cheese and ever since then I was hooked! There is just something about the […]
