I have been asked all of these questions below.  I thought I would share them publically, and let it serve as my “get to know me” page. Enjoy!

Q: How tall are you?
A: I am 5’4” (yes, the most typical Asian girl height)

Q: What ethnicity are you?
A: I am 100% Chinese. Born and raised in Hong Kong.

Q: Can you speak Chinese?
A: Yup!! I speak Cantonese, Mandarian, and Shanghainese. 

Q: What does “misojenny” mean? Do you like miso soup?
A: Funny story. I am very particular about the things I like, and my friend suggested “Me So Jenny” for my channel name.  Surprisingly, the username was taken.  So we put a spin on it and made it “misojenny.  Oh, and do I like Miso soup? YES!!

Q: You make Jewelry? Where can I see your collection?
A: I have been making jewelry as a hobby since I was in college (long time ago). I started a little boutique online and I'm in the process of moving the boutique to Etsy.comhttp://www.etsy.com/shop/leChicBleu  It is not finished yet, but you can view some of the pieces here.

Q: What is your favorite cosmetic/ Skincare brand?
A: It would be impossible to pick just one brand. Companies are always releasing new products and therefore my “favorite” is always evolving.  However, the following list of companies has consistently outperformed their competitors in my opinion.

Not in any particular order
·         Guerlain
·         SUQQU
·         Albion
·         Lunasol: Kanebo
·         Makeup Forever
·         Chanel
·         Shiseido
·         Naruko
I’m probably missing some but you can get a pretty good idea what products I like from my videos.

Q: Do you play any instruments?
A: I played the piano for 11 years.

Q: How do you have money to buy all these things?
A: I think it is just how you prioritize and spend your money.  Granted we have a very wide social economical range, but I don’t think I spend so extravagantly that none of my viewers can experience the same products as well.  

Q: Why do you only like the expensive brands?
A: When I was younger I used drugstore products (I still do sometimes), but as I became more economically capable I was able to try the higher end products.  It doesn’t mean I won’t buy something unless it is expensive.  It just means I really appreciate the quality of these products, and I’m willing to spend a little extra to get the craftsmanship and quality.  This is definitely a personal choice.  Sometimes a $5 hand cream is just as good as the $30 one.
More questions? Please leave a comment below with your question and I'll see if I can add it to the list! Thanks so much for reading!
