For Sherilyn Siy, Asia is home. Born in Hong Kong, Sherilyn grew up in the Philippines, worked for a while in Xiamen, China, and now lives in Japan. She speaks English, Filipino, Chinese (or putonghua), and Hokkien, her family's local dialect. As a certified foodie, Japan is a haven. Her favorite Japanese comfort food is a steaming bowl of ramen (which she once had twice in a day!). She loves the Japanese philosophy of mottainai, and gets very excited learning about the many ways it’s applied in the latest technology and daily life. She blogs at BecomingSherilyn at Wordpress.
