Name and Twitter handle: Shelley Chen @caff3inated
Occupation (optional): Communication designer working in fashion (yes that’s a picture of me trying to run over everything in the Kensie warehouse, working hard I swear!)
A notable moment on Twitter? Not exactly a moment, but #buzzevent and #604insomnia and such helped me meet lots of awesome people in Vancouver. I moved here from Toronto few years ago not knowing anyone, so I have twitter to thank for that.Your best Tweet: Tweets where I tweet I want to eat and people show up, I love spontaneous meet-ups for food!
What did you want to be growing up? Fashion designer. But as I grew up I realize I love graphic design and typography so I managed to merge the two!
If you could have dinner with 1 person (alive or dead) who would it be? Right now McQueen maybe? I wonder what he thinks of people gushing about his MET exhibit even though most of these people never really know him to seen his collections until he’s gone.
Your claim to fame: Fame? I don’t know haha, but I’m known to love fashion/beauty and tech/gadgets equally! I can go on and on whether it be Louboutins or Android ROMs; I don’t think I need to be one type of girl or another.
Do you know of a hidden gem in our city? Not sure if it’s a hidden gem, but it definitely doesn’t get talked about enough. Miura Waffle Milk Bar @miurainc has the best creative waffle sandos, sweet or savoury. Bulgogi waffles!! <3
If you were a vegetable, what would you be and why? Nothing really comes to mind, except NOT an onion. I can’t stand onions.
If you were a superhero, who would you be and why? Something secret. Superpowers are not nearly as cool anymore if everyone knows what you can do.
Recommend a fellow Twitterer that deserves some recognition? Woah this part is hard. Probably @mynameisJOHNKOR because he’s one of the most hard-working and solid web developer I know, and he just joined Twitter not long ago so give him a boost.
