My name is Tara. I am born and raised in Orange County and am a proud Californian at heart. I’ll admit I love living in Orange County, but dislike associating myself as an “Orange County” person. I suppose I dislike this because of the connotations that come with it. People think of us “Orange County” people as spoiled, rude, materialistic, on top of other bad things. Luckily from my parents, I learned to appreciate life and to never take anything for granted.
I have been meaning to start a blog of mine for almost a year now and am finally coming around to it! The story behind the name comes from one of my best friends. We were talking about crazy things that we have eaten during our travels. I expressed that I once had ‘starfish on a a stick’ in Beijing on that famous outdoor food market with insane food. My friend said that whenever I create a blog, that should be the name. So, now you know why, starfish on a stick is the title of this blog. And let me tell you, I would not recommend anyone to try it (the food). Most disgusting thing I’ve ever tasted, yet the most interesting food I’ve ever had.
This blog will aim to be about three things mostly: food, travel, my life. Simple as that.
