Welcome to The Missing Lokness!

Let me explain a bit about the name of the blog. My nickname is Lokness. The name came from the name for the lake monster, Loch Ness. Since some people claimed that they have seen Loch Ness, the existence of Loch Ness is absolutely a mystery. While people are looking for evidence of the real Loch Ness, perhaps you can follow my blog, and find out what I, Lokness, have been doing.

I was born in Hong Kong. I came to Los Angeles in 2002 for college. From all those years, I have developed my love for Los Angeles. This city is diverse, and it is formed by all the different ethnics and cultures. One moment you can be in Chinatown, and the next you will be in Little India. It is very exciting to get to know the people around you, try their food, and understand their cultures. We are all very different, but we are also very similar.

I have a wonderful husband, Bryan. And, we have had a cute little guinea pig, Tuna. My favorite thing to do is to cook and bake some delicious food for my husband.

This blog is about four things: Eat, Cook, Learn, and Live

Eat: I love to eat. I just love food! There are many things for me to try in this world. I am adventurous, and I am not afraid to try every single things from different ethnic and cultures. It can be high-end dining or street food or home cook meal. I believe food is what ties everyone together. But if it is bugs, I may have to think again.

Cook: Since I love to eat, cooking seems to be the next logic step. Being away from my home country, Hong Kong, it is important for me to learn how to cook. It all began when I miss some of the great flavors from home. If I want that food, I will have to cook it myself. Other than home country food, I love to bake. Desserts make me smile. I know that I am not an expert in cooking, but I would love to share some of my favorite recipes.

Learn: There is always something to learn everyday. No matter it is the new way of cooking or a new food term, everyday is full of excitement. For example, I have found out recently that Peruvian use guinea pigs as food. Some people treat a specific animal as pet, and other cultures see that animal as food. That is ok, and we just have to learn to understand.

Live: “Live happily everyday” is my motto. I would share some of my feelings and interesting things about my life. There is so much to offer in this world. Either it is a good day or bad day, you have to live. If so, just be happy!

  1. Good philosophy. I like how you can accept that different cultures see some animals as pets, some as even “sacred” and others see the animals as a source of food. That is what tolerance is about. Tolerance can lead us to peace.

    • Thank you! Haha… You are the first person that I know from Scotland! I think I have to go there and check out the lake one day. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Oh! My cousins in Holland used to call me Lochness, because they pronounced my name Achnes (agnes). I used to live in LA with hubby! There’s a lot of Asian communities and food there, so I’m sure you enjoy it although it’s far from home 🙂

    • Haha, really? What a coincidence! We have so much in common! Yes, LA has a lot of different kinds of food. There has been a boom in Asian restaurants these few years, especially with Japanese food. You can easily find a good authentic ramen place in many neighborhoods. That is really exciting. I hope the food trend continues. And one day, there are more choices for you in Florida.
