Smiling so happily because of all the fun I had in Taiwan. Taipei was 💣 - definitely one of my top favorite cities to visit! Also, the food was AMAZING. I can't stop thinking about this late-night beef noodle soup I had, as well as this freaking amazing radish dish that felt like it not only cleansed my palette but also my entire being. it was so freaking good!!! I need to learn how to make it!!

Had the most wonderful time in Beijing! Swipe ➡️ for more pics. One of the most amazing things about Beijing was that I could pay for pretty much everything with my phone! Even street vendors had QR codes I could easily scan to pay. I also thought the people in Beijing were so friendly and nice! I’m excited to go back again. ❤️
My mom at the Forbidden City ❤️. I know she's going to see this because she keeps up with my Instagram. I'm so incredibly grateful to this woman who birthed and raised me. Mummy: I admire your kind soul, intuitive sprit, and the wisdom with which you handle difficult situations. Thank you for perpetually reminding me that you love me ❤️.
Throwback to pre-purple hair days when I was looking at wedding dresses for my roommate 😍👰🏻. Time has flown so much! How is it already December? It feels like just yesterday that I was figuring out my resolutions for 2017!

Spent today reflecting on self-worth and validation. Learning to love myself has been such a journey. I've realized that there are things from my past that still adversely affect me. But I'm working on it, and I'm learning to proudly be the Abi-est Abi I can be ❤️. There's only one of you - don't be afraid to let your light shine through! ⭐️
Being back in my second home of Seattle was so refreshing and fun! I feel like I've been in a food coma for a week because of the amount of food I've been eating everyday! I'm so thankful for my parents and my Seattle friends ❤️. The change of environment helped me to reflect and reminded me of the truly important things in life. Material things are nice but it's the relationships in my life that truly give me joy. 📷: @christian_ong
I tend to be an overachiever and sometimes push myself too much. Even with my hobbies, I tend to critically examine ways I can improve. But recently I've been trying to turn that inner critic off and instead just simply enjoy what I'm doing. It's been very refreshing and I've been feeling a lot more at peace recently.
