Hi everyone, I am Vy (pronunciation: Vee) and I have random thoughts every day. My thoughts are mostly about food, art, and cultures.
I feel happy every time I think about those things so I have decided to start this blog: Vylyst (which is a stylized way of writing Vy's lists), to document my lists of happiness.
This blog is simply my own way to arrange my random thoughts into a logical order and share them with anyone who is interested.
I tend to write things about places I have been which are:
- 5 cities I have lived: Hanoi (Vietnam), Chichester (UK), Oxford (UK), Sacramento (USA), Rome (Italy).
- 18 countries I have visited: UK, USA, Switzerland, Germany, The Netherlands, France, Italy, The Vatican City, Spain, Belgium, Austria, Bulgaria, Greece, China, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and Burma.
My ultimate goal is to explore every culture around the world, with a focus on art and food. I do not write a lot about art on my blog though because I already have to deal with it academically.
My proudest accomplishment up till now? I turned my passions for art and food into an undergraduate dissertation - The Representation of Food and Feasting In 17th-Century Dutch Sumptuous Still Life.
My story is here.
