Get to Know Jade: The Basics

Here's a quick "About Me" post with some of the basics.

Birthday: May 28, 1986

Height: 5'4"

Nationality: American

Ethnicity: Samoan & Filipino

Favorite city: Washington DC

Favorite color: Red

Favorite food: Such a tough question! I'm quite the foodie. Seafood, especially the raw bar & sushi. Steak.

Favorite restaurant: This is just as tough! I like to try new things so often, so it really depends on my mood. Of course the food should be amazing, but I'm a big atmosphere person. Something with a great scene/setting that matches whatever the occasion is. For date nights, I love a dim lit space and sharing a bottle of wine with lots of apps/tapas so we can both indulge in tasting as much as possible.

Favorite fragrance: I'm actually allergic to some cologne/perfume formulas, so for the most part I stay away. When we meet, I hope you won't wear any! However for home scents I love fresh scents like peony, lemon, or clean cotton scented candles.

Favorite song: Foxy Lady by Jimi Hendrix

Favorite movie: Crash

Favorite flowers: Actually, I'm not a fan, but I do love this quote by Osho: "If you love a flower, don't pick it up. Because if you pick it up, it dies, and it will cease to be what you love. So if you love a flower, let it be. Love is about appreciation. Love is not about possession."

What I do with my free time: I LOVE cooking, reading food blogs, and grocery shopping, especially at the Asian market. I'm known to hit up 2 or 3 different stores in a week just to gather special ingredients that I need for my next kitchen adventure. I'm obsessed with flavors and interesting dishes, especially healthy and exotic foods. I also like trying new cooking techniques.

I just wanted to get some of the basics covered. I'll be adding more "about me" to my blog in the future. What else do you want to know about me?
