We got talking to Mariko Kuo, content creator, blogger and lawyer about what is keeping her sane during the lockdown…

WHERE ARE YOU WRITING THIS? 

In my living room.

 

WHERE ARE YOU DREAMING OF GOING AS SOON AS THE QUARANTINE ENDS? 

At this point anywhere which opens their borders first, but somewhere by the sea would be my top choice.  Mexico, Vietnam and Japan are high on my list.

 

WHAT QUOTE/ MANTRA / MINDFULNESS GO TO IS GETTING YOU THROUGH THIS? 

We will meet again :)

 

WHAT IS KEEPING YOU LAUGHING? 

My daughter!

 

WHAT WON’T YOU EVER TAKE FOR GRANTED AGAIN POST QUARANTINE? 

Being able to stroll into a cafe for a strong cup of oat milk flat white.

 

WHAT SMALL BUSINESSES ARE YOU LOVING AND WOULD LIKE TO GIVE A SHOUT TO? 

Georgia Hardinge has been working to donate their proceeds  from their sustainable collection to AgeUK. As a charity committed to helping the elderly particularly those lacking in friends and family, I love that this brand is supporting this charity at this challenging time. 

 

WHAT RESTAURANT WILL BE YOUR FIRST MEAL POST QUARANTINE? 

This is a tough one!  A nice local bistro in Paris would be my first choice!

 

WHAT IS KEEPING YOU ENTERTAINED - PRINT OR DIGITAL?  

I've gotten back to reading books which I haven't had the time to do for a while.  I am loving reading Educated by Tara Westover at the moment.

 

WE ARE CALLED THE DECK – WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CARD GAME? 

Rummy

 

WHAT WOULD YOUR DREAM SUIT LOOK LIKE? 

A perfectly tailored three piece suit.

 

WHAT ARE YOU WATCHING ON NETFLIX? 

Tiger King!  Oh the drama on this show!

 I can't live without my Concentrate from La Mer and my Clinique Deep Comfort Hand Cream for after all our handwashing.

 

YOUR GO TO VITAMINS? 

Sunbathing on the balcony for my Vitamin D boost.

 

HOW ARE YOU KEEPING YOUR KIDS ENTERTAINED?

 Lots of cooking and baking.  Our first attempt at making sticky pork bao buns was a great success!
