She is an Asian female, in her 30s, trying to integrate herself in the city of Vienna. She is the wife and lover to R, a mother to a wonderful boy named Boo the Rascal, and friends to a few people. She loves dark red and dark blue, doesn’t mind the trivialities of life, dabbles in calligraphy, collects throwpillows, likes to write and dreams that one day she will have her own castle fronting a beach somewhere in Southeast Asia. When enjoying her spare spare time, she takes time out to read German-language gossip magazines and children's books written by Erich Kästner to motivate her in learning the masculine-sounding language. Sometimes, it works! Her pursuits are as follows: the French band Phoenix, the life and art of Artemisia Gentileschi, the 19th-century Vienna, the writings of Arthur Schnitzler, Turkish rose jam, finding ways to get out of her day job, immigration, pondering about her husband who enjoys gardening and the country life and chasing after her son who cannot stop saying the German preposition "auf" means on or open in English.
