Something ILC attendees would never guess about you:
I love anything Sanrio (i.e. – Hello Kitty). I will, at some point in time, travel to Asia on the Eva Air Hello Kitty Jet.
Favorite place to stay when traveling:
Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong – the first and flagship hotel for Mandarin. However, Hong Kong Afternoon Tea is not to be missed at the Peninsula Hong Kong.
MUST have travel item:
Can I have three MUST haves? Eye cream, slippers and my Surface Tablet. Eye cream to prevent puffy eyes, slippers so my feet don’t have to touch the hotel carpet and bathroom and the Surface tablet because I can do everything on it!
Biggest extravagance or vice:
Espresso and their machines – the plan is to upgrade our existing Rancilio to a La Marzocco GS3. Maybe I should stick to shoes….
Babysitting (I know, not very exciting). I remember thinking, “this is really hard and I’m getting paid $5/hr….my mom isn’t getting paid at all!”
