Li-Mei NYC
 

 
 

Gifts are never expected but always appreciated.

My favorite type of gifts are cash tips as they allow me to invest in my education, savings or the financial market. If you wish to surprise me with luxuries, below is a list of experiences and items I crave:

Like a bird who is always bouncing around the world, airlines gift cards make the most lovely token of affection. Please email them to “meetlimei(at)gmail.com”. My favorite airlines are Delta and Air France, or any from the Sky team Alliance..

Lingerie (Size 30D/32C/XS)

As a lover of premium lingerie, I’m always looking to add high quality pieces to my collection, specially if they’re custom made. Some brands that I love, but don’t offer gift card options are Cristina Aielli and La Perla. The first is a Haute Couture company that specializes in made to measure garments. If you would like me to model a specific set, you may send me the equivalent amount over Venmo and I’ll purchase it myself. Generous admirers will receive exclusive selfies. Please keep in mind Cristina Aielli designs may take up to 8 weeks to finish

Spa

I typically spend several days a week in a dance studio, on top of high intensity workouts and other sports. I too often wake up with muscle soreness. A Spa date or gift card always brighten my day

Culinary Wishlist

While I don’t have a favorite city, yet, since my list of destinations to visit is long, I can easily name Tokyo as one of the most spectacular places in the world. Perhaps it’s the bias of my love for Omakase sushi, or because it’s the city with the most Michelin Star restaurants. Below is a list of some places around the world I’ve tried and loved, and some that I’m looking to experience.
