Hello, my name is Yang.

While I've lived in many places, the food I eat every day is still the food of my birthplace - Shanghai.

The best description I can think of for the food I eat is "qing dan" - a light balanced quality, often with a sense of purity and delicacy. Ingredients are never drowned in sauces, too greasy, or heavily spiced, but rather appreciated for what they are.

I realize it influences many facets of my life from the tea I choose to drink in the morning, to the art I end up doodling. I hope to share some of my adventures in art, food, tea and perhaps, to inspire you to also explore new flavors.
