About



Hey you, welcome to IP!

Ice Pandora is an online lifestyle diary that comes in text and photographs, all responsible by Mei (梅美貞 ) who is by the way already in her ¼ life of age. Mei has a bachelor degree in creative cultural education and a blogger from The Netherlands. A Chinese-Dutchie!
This Chinese-Dutchie loves to be on the move, usually with food and camera in her hand or a passport with headphones, yarn and glue gun or a bowl of gluten free dough batter. Yum? Yes very! All this passion sums up the 5 Ice Pandora charisma: snappie, foodie, craftie, healthie and happie. 

Mei discovered blogging since the early ’10 and shes been doing it non-stop so far by writing blogpost almost everyday. Mei's blogposts usually involves food, creative ideas, travels, armature cooking skills, sometimes beauty tips but mostly positive life updates.
Her younger self was also active in the digital era in the form of: online gaming, watching anime, creating pixel art (more here) and an active forum user but underneath all that lies a creative mind, a foodie and a wanderlust. Her friends describe her as a calm, gentle, cheery, lively, inventive but also sometimes naive and a hermit kind of person too.
Furthermore Mei is a quirk and a sweet tooth café-lover and that makes the name ´Ice Pandora ´a good fit for this online diary: a small digital space with a mix of personal style and creativity and pursuing dreams.  

Some Mei facts
