We’re so excited to introduce to you our newest employee, Mira Hapsari! I sat down with Mira to ask her a few questions, so we can get to know her better.
1. Tell me about where you grew up?
I was raised in Jakarta, Indonesia. Living in the capital, I quickly learned about crossing multiple-lane streets with crazy traffic, getting to places with various public transportation methods and to be very independent since I was very little. (Very cool!)
2. What's the best trip you've ever gone on?
My Japan trip in Spring 2013, hands down. My husband and I went to Japan last year to explore Tokyo, Kyoto, and a few other places. I took care of all the trip planning, and it just so happens that I speak the language, so we had an awesome time going around and seeing the cherry blossoms blooming! That being said, honestly the best part was seeing how relaxed my husband was during the whole trip. It made me overjoyed seeing him that excited!
3. What's your dream vacation?
My dream vacation would be a one-year vacation to various countries for sight seeing, culture learning, and idea sharing/making. I'd love to meet up with people I first connected with on social media, make some cool things together (I love DIY fashion), and share the experience on my fashion blog! I have so many places I want to visit all over the world.
4. Favorite food?
Ah, it's almost impossible to get a straight answer from an Indonesian girl...there's too much good food in Indonesia and in the Bay Area! Here are three: martabak manis (Indonesian pancake) filled with chocolate and cheese, ketoprak Jakarta, and Japanese chirashi sushi.
5. Do you have any siblings?
I have one older brother. Fun fact: I'm 5'10", and I'm the second shortest in the family. My brother is the tallest at 6'3".
6. If you were to have an actress play you in a movie, who would would it be?
Oh gosh....Julia Stiles. At one point in my life, someone thought I looked like her--what a great compliment.
7. If you won the lottery, what's the first thing you would buy or do?
If I'm not starting on that dream vacation, I'd get a spacious, creativity-inducing loft...something like the hideout in Assassin's Creed 2 (action-adventure game by Ubisoft).
8. What's your favorite band/musician?
Alicia Keys, Bruno Mars, Five for Fighting, Mr. Children.
9. What's your favorite book?
Kakkoii Couture Remake by Koko Yamase.
10. Guilty pleasure? Singing karaoke (especially Savage Garden songs and Japanese anime songs) and playing Dynasty Warriors.
11. Favorite TV show?
The Voice, Parks & Recreation, House of Cards.
Welcome to the team Mira! It sounds like you have a unique perspective on the world that will be a great asset to CoverHound! We're so happy you joined us!
