People talk about perfect timing, but I think everything is perfect in its moment; you just want to capture that. ---->>>

I get so disenfranchised reading the news, because global borders and lines we've created are completely unnecessary. That's just another person on the other side, and it's his bad luck that he was born there and it's my good fortune that I was born here. It's all kind of illogical. ---->>>

I wanted to inspire people not to work under a bamboo ceiling. Whatever you are - yellow, black, white, brown - you don't have to allow your skin to define who you are or how you operate your business. There's not one face to anything. ---->>>

I want to prove you don't need to have academic syntax to be intelligent. ---->>>

I'm so sick of people misunderstanding Asians in America and what we're about. ---->>>

When I feel off, I read the 'Tao Te Ching' to get my equilibrium right. I started reading it in the eleventh grade. ---->>>

For me, juicing isn't about binging and cleansing; I try to incorporate it into a balanced diet. ---->>>

I've never said I was a chef - I think I make great food. I will never open a restaurant to do, like, tasting courses. ---->>>

I want everybody to run at the same speed as me. But some people are more conscientious, they think more and they plan more. And they're more careful. ---->>>

I'll always be Chinese first. It probably isn't politically correct to say or something that the majority understands; I can change my shoes, I can swap my passport, but, I'll always have this face. ---->>>

I wasn't meant to be an attorney, but I was meant to go to law school. ---->>>

Sundays are for Dim Sum. While the rest of America goes to church, Sunday School, or NFL games, you can find Chinese people eating Cantonese food. ---->>>

BaoHaus is idiosyncratic, creative, and artistic. My restaurant doesn't look like a Taiwanese restaurant. ---->>>

I don't think people in America understand race, and how deep the hooks of whiteness there are in our consciousness. ---->>>

I choose to be American, I choose to live in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, I choose to have Puerto Rican/Jewish neighbors, and I choose to maintain my Chinese identity. ---->>>

I don't want to get burned when I'm cooking. To avoid getting hit when pan-frying, I stand far away and use chopsticks that are almost two feet long. I learned it from my mom, who does the same thing. ---->>>

I'll always be American in my world view and allegiance. American in the naive way I go to other countries and tell them how they should treat their poor or clean their water. ---->>>
