Yes! Although I’m a hearty eater, I always choose healthy dishes as my priority, like vegetables, fruits or fish. You know, a healthy diet protects me against many chronic diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer.

Well, very often. I usually prefer homemade foods and my parents are good cookers, so there is no reason for me to eat outside.

When was the last time you went to a forest?

Well, it was last month I travelled to Kyoto, there was a valley covered by forest. But it was a pity that the color was totally green because only in spring or autumn, tourists could enjoy a colorful forest.





Do you like to go to a forest if you are free?





Why not? Being in nature like a forest is not only an experience of viewing scenes, it also could reduce my anger or stress. If I live nearby a forest, Id say Ill visit it every week.

I absolutely love amusement parks. I love the sensation and thrill of roller coasters and high-speed rides. I also love the colorful carnival atmosphere, music, food and things to do. It makes me feel like a kid all over again.

Once a few years I guess. Although Im living in Shanghai where has some amusement parks like Disneyland, I seldom visit there because its expensive, you know, the cost for food, games or admission tickets is not a small amount.

Myself. It doesnt mean that I dont trust my family or someone significant in my life, I mean I have my best interests or true feelings at heart and thats why I could trust myself more than anyone else.

Without any doubt, I trust people who tell truth to me even if it goes against me. Because honesty is the best quality for human being and it brings people safety in different kinds of relationship.

It makes me look best and feel confident, for example, when the concealer covers reddish spots or fleck on my face. Meanwhile, it means something troublesome because I have to prepare kinds of cosmetics and spend time on it.

Once or twice, I sent a lipstick to my sister and liquid foundation to my mom when I travelled from Japan and they were surprised about the presents.


What do you think when you see a man wearing makeup?

I personally think its ok for a man as it says that the guy is comfortable with them self and confident. You know men are often placed in a box and be viewed weird when they wear makeup, however, I dont think there is only one rule for men, they could do anything which makes them beautiful.



What kinds of things make you tired?

Well, acting like a serious, responsible adult is draining my energy because there is all work and no play and the only thing you consider about is to catch up with your routines. Moreover, the lack of sleep also makes me exhausted.
