How Light Morning Workouts
Can Improve Your Day
Tai Chi is often described as “meditation in motion”. As a form of exercise, Tai Chi combines gentle physical exercise and
stretching with mindfulness. It can improve balance control, fitness, flexibility, and may reduce the risk of falls in older people.
Add 10 minutes of Tai Chi Routine in your morning schedule as soon as you wake up. You will feel refreshed and energized all day as promised.
Here’s the YouTube video created by Master Wong you can try out.
Master Wong also provides videos of tai chi, martial arts, self-defense, and many more! Check them out!
A sweet and light dessert on a hot day!
Silky, creamy and tasting of pure coconut, it’s a dreamy treat for those who seek coconut’s sublet flavor.
Haupia (pronounced how-pee-ah) tastes of pure coconut because it’s made with only four ingredients:
freshly grated coconut or full fat coconut milk, cornstarch, sugar and water.
It’s very easy to make. Try it, you won’t regret it!

Life is better when you’re laughing.
The complicated life of a first-generation Indian-American teenager.
Never Have I Ever is an American coming of age comedy-drama television series starring Maitreyi Ramakrishnan
and created by Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher. The comedy is partially based on Kaling’s real childhood story, growing up in the Boston area.
In his debut stand-up special, Good Deal, Jimmy will tell you all about his take on Asian representation, how he learned to
speak English from rap videos, dating tall women, and pursuing his dreams only to disappoint his old school Chinese parents.
Reading is dreaming with open eyes.
By Ali Wong
The book talks about Ali Wong’s heartfelt and hilarious letters to her daughters, covering everything they need to know in life,
like the unpleasant details of dating, how to be a working mom in a male-dominated profession, and how she trapped their dad.
