I’m Pei-Ling, a 20-something-year-old who challenges herself and others to pursue a more loving, creative, and sustainable life.
Here’s what you’ll find on my website:
These monthly challenges are opportunities for me to live better and become better, so I can better serve the world around me. And they will challenge me, in one way or another.
What does “better” even mean? In essence, being better means being more loving to myself, to others, and to the planet.
And since we always have room to grow, the process of becoming better is an endless journey—full of taking two steps forward and one step back. But I believe it’s undoubtedly worthwhile.
After all, if everyone worked on being incrementally better to themselves, society, and the environment, then the world would be exponentially better for it.
You’ll soon discover my absolute love of food, which in my Chinese-Malaysian household has always been synonymous with family. In my Food Fridays series, I’ll use a dish I’ve recently eaten to grapple with the challenge of food justice and sustainability.
I love all aspects of food with a fiery passion—from production to consumption to everything in between. So there are few things in the world that make me more heated than the social and environmental injustices pervading our current food system. What do we consider food? How is it produced? And who gets to eat it? These are merely some of the questions swirling around my mind.
We need change on all levels of society. How can we empower individuals to make a positive impact through their own food choices? It’s hard to change behavior. But since we control our own actions, we have a responsibility to do our best—whatever that looks like.
