Coconut Ninja // Experience Curator

Growing up as a tropical fruit-loving only child to a Vietnamese refugee single mother who would stock the fridge with just the seasonal basics, it felt like a special occasion when she came home with fresh coconuts. I was 8 years old when she handed me this cleaver and taught me how to chop one. It’s something I've carried with me ever since.

Sipping on a freshly cracked coconut can magically transport us to a tropical paradise in our minds. It’s like holding a holiday in our hands with smiles through every sip. Even though coconuts offer a taste of escapism, they also serve as a refreshing reminder to enjoy the now. It’s so easy to feel weighed down by our everyday lives, but a coconut can reel us back in, drown out the noise, and ground us into relaxation.

Without events during the pandemic, I completed my graduate studies in clinical psychology to become a therapist while caring for my mother until her very last breath. Coconuts embody her spirit so perfectly, being tough on the outside with nourishing sweetness on the inside. 

My mission is to share our love for this magical fruit supercharged with an abundance of healing benefits while hydrating everyone with fresh organic coconuts from my motherland. It's about crafting moments of human connection and wonder with a touch of rejuvenation. Come along on this adventure to celebrate communal experiences where we can slow down to relish a coconut alongside each other, soak in the simple pleasures of life, and savor the moment. Wherever that may be, let us be present.
