This blog begins like so many others–as a way to communicate with the world. I was born and raised in Southern California and recently graduated from college in Oregon. But before that, I studied abroad in Chengdu, China–and it was the time of my life. I am a girl who takes her naps outside beneath the afternoon sun, who grew up in a quiet, seaside community, and is ready to jump continents and splash into exhilarating, confusing experiences abroad.
My username is dedicated to the fond memories I have of the odd family outings for dim sum on late morning Sundays. Yim cha is a country dialect of yum cha, both of which refer to dim sum (drinking tea and eating little morsels of food).
