Welcome to my blog

August 25, 2017



Welcome to the world of Christina. Thank you sososo much for stopping by! 

Many of you may not know me and this first post is to introduce me to you.

Why don't we start with the most cliche and basic tag: 25 facts about me? (50 might get a little tmi!) 


  • My Instagram handle used to be known as "fixmefoodie" but I wanted to share more about my lifestyle and travels and not be restricted by only food so I integrated it with my personal one and renamed it "YANGXTINAA".
  • I wanted to start a blog because I really love writing and I want to use this blog to bring out the more personal side (behind the IG post) and share random babbles or life stories that are memorable to me.
  • I was born in a tiny yet mighty & delicious country called - Taiwan.
  • I moved to Canada when I was 5 years old and am still able to communicate in Mandarin fluently! 你好!很高興認識你!
  • I graduated from the University of Toronto in 2016.

  • I'm currently studying part-time and working full-time. This is the first time I've ever done this! I really admire those people who are able to work FT and study at the same time. Although I'm only taking 1 course at the moment, it's still really difficult to keep up with the course.
  • I'm a short little Asian girl.
  • I put up a strong face but I'm actually quite vulnerable inside.
  • I moved back from Toronto last October 2016 and it's been really hard to adjust. Although I grew up in Vancouver, my life and friendships in Toronto were much more different than here. Perhaps it was because I was away from family so the bond that I built with my friends there were much more stronger than the friends I had back in Vancouver. It was also difficult because I didn't maintain much communication with my friends in Vancouver after being in Toronto. I shared a bit on my Instagram about being lonely and this will definitely be another separate blog post because loneliness is the biggest internal struggle that I'm facing at the moment.
  • I have a very soft heart for doggies, especially strays. I'm those type of people who think dogs > humans. One of my dreams and passions is to open a dog shelter in the future.

  • My favourite type of food is hot pot (chinese kinds). I can eat it EVERYDAY!
  • I'm a hopeless romantic and believe that romance & excitement keeps relationships alive.
  • I haven't partied in over a year and have become a grannie. Yes, I sleep before 10pm.
  • I would like to thank my work and having a regular 9-5 job because it really adjusted my crazily unhealthy lifestyle.
  • My favourite movie is Mean Girls.

  • I have 2 tattoos and would like to get a third one!
  • I won a speech competition in grade 5. (Yay little me!)
  • I'm one of those grannies who always ask for hot water if they serve me cold water.
  • I realized that photography is a very expensive hobby to keep up.
  • I'm a belieber.

  • McDonalds chicken nuggets = life.
  • I absolutely HATE driving! Which is why I got my license late and let it expire...
  • Budget friendly trips are my specialty!
  • I would like to see more of BC. It's soso beautiful!
  • Sometimes I feel like I'm the ugliest person in the world and other days I'm like "heyyy beautiful how you doing?!" CONFIDENCE is sexy.

Thank you for reading my first blog post. I hope you learned a little bit about me! 

Would love to get to know you better too. Share a fact about yourself! :)

Lots of Love, Christina
