Buying a home is quite an intimidating process. Not only will it probably be one of the most expensive purchases in your lifetime, it also has a ton of rules & steps in the procedure you may have never heard of!? Since we are two novices who don’t own any property, we invited on our real estate agent friend, Andre Wang, to break down the home-buying process and share what to look for when selecting a real estate agent & mor...

It's been almost 3 years since we've graduated, which means we've also been working for a similar amount of time. While the 9-5 does have its ups and downs, we're mostly grateful to be along for the ride! Today we reflect on our past few years of being a corporate slave (haha jk) and rate some of the job advice we've been given when we were students.

We're not quite at the age where all our friends are getting married left and right, but it is an important milestone that is creeping up on us. Whether we've been to 10+ family weddings and know the cultural ceremonies like the back of our hand, or whether all of our wedding knowledge derives from the chick lit we read when we were 12 years old, we chat about our various wedding experiences and how they affect our pers...

Since we’ve both started cooking more for ourselves in the past few years, there’s a few gripes we have about cooking. First of all, we’re spending more and more time (and money!) thinking about, prepping for, and cleaning up after cooking. Second of all, why does it take 10+ hours of careful love and coddling for us to make some decent bone broth at home?!

Join us for our little rant session today to see if any of your cooking...

As you know, we love to dive into the Asian American experience (and Asian Canadian experience), since both of us grew up in North America. But the Asian experience extends beyond the US & Canada, so today we bring on our friend Niu-Niu to hear about what it was like growing up in Hungary, especially as someone who is ethnically Chinese! Niu-Niu shares her experience as a Third Culture Kid, debunks some International School myt...

New York City, say hello to your newest resident! One of us is moving to New York City, can you guess who?

As suburban girls at heart, a cross-country move into the Big Apple is hugely exciting, but also a little bit intimidating. We dive into the decision-making process, the logistics (hint: a combination of spreadsheets & YOLO energy), and the emotional aspect of moving away from the hometown.

Hey... We need to talk. What are we? 

You guessed it - today's episode is a (semi-morally questionable) guide to navigating the CONFUSING maze that is defining the relationship! We go over any personal rules we bring to our approach of DTRing, our least favorite stages of relationship development, and even act out a few examples (!!!) so you have some references you can look back on the next time you have to have *the talk * ;)...

It’s no secret that friendships are a big part of our lives - from our close high school group chats, to our long distance friends we truly miss, to the friends who are always down to do absolutely nothing together, our friendships mean just as much to us as our relationships! 

But does the amount of effort, vulnerability, and transparency we bring to friendships match the level of internal appreciation we have?  Are we as willing t...

Having your own space is something we’ve dreamed about since we were young. Being a homeowner just means you get to decorate it the way you like……right?
