Welcome! My name is Jo (short for Joanne). I’m not too crazy about “Joanne” because I find it too formal. I prefer being called Jo, Joey, or Jo Jo. I was named after my parent’s English teacher when we arrived in Vancouver in 1981. I came to Canada when I was 5 years old. We lived in Toronto before moving to Vancouver.
I was born in Vietnam but I’m 100% Chinese. My grandparents immigrated to Vietnam from China many years ago. I can’t speak Vietnamese. I’m fluent in English and Cantonese (both speaking and writing).
White Roses and Coffee is a personal style blog. I initially started this blog because I love photography and wanted a platform to display my photos. Ever since I started this blog, I’ve gained tremendous support from my readers and fellow bloggers. Thank you for visiting!
