I am currently a PhD student at Berkeley, researching distributed systems.

I am currently a SWE at Google. These blogs are about my personal stuffs.

I don't write a lot (though have tons of tsukkomi). Previous unsuccessful attempts include WordPress, Jekyll, Hugo and Medium... The recurring pattern is that suddenly I get into the mood of writing something (like now), explore a new platform because I am sick of the old ones (wanting a fresh start), and write a few articles (promising myself I will keep writing) and then STOP.

This attempt may not be different, but still, worth trying, isn't it?

咖啡與館 Coffee and Cafe

朋友圈裏流行着這麼一篇文章“二十幾歲住在哪裏對你有多重要?”,大致是在講你年輕時所在的城市把他所獨具的氣質文化風格深深地烙印在你的經歷裏。 而灣區的咖啡文化大概就是對我的烙印。
