Why do you want to join Dinner for 8? What are your expectations from the group?

It's great to meet like minded people...good to eat with folks who know the dos and don'ts of using a lazy-susan and why you don't take the last piece when you eat family least not until it's been sitting there for a while.

What industry do you work in?

I teach Asian American Studies at a local college. Some of my interests include Asian American & Pacific Islanders and health.

What is your ethnicity? (Please be specific - "Asian" is not an answer)

I see myself as a member of the Chinese diaspora. I feel I have more in common with members of the "overseas Chinese" than Chinese in China. In Buenos Aires, they called dumplings "Ravioles Chinos" and ZhongZhi "Tamales Chinos." We're everywhere!

Do you have a photo of yourself (animals, landscapes, obscure clouds and/or your face blocked out aren't acceptable)? New members must post a picture to be accepted.

Yes, it's up.

I have a one-strike "flake" policy. Do you understand that if you RSVP for an event and don't show up or don't call the organizer, you will be immediately removed from the group?

yes. I hate flakes!


I was born and raised in Texas, but have been living in Los Angeles for the last 20 or so years. Also lived two fabulous years in Hawai'i. Last year I spent three months in Buenos Aires and 6 months in Shanghai.
