Most notably, she has translated the Chinese biography of Dr. Kai-Fu Lee, former president of Google China and founder of Innovation Works, into English. Dr. Lee grew up in the US and writes excellent English himself. His choice of Crystal as the English translator of his Chinese biography naturally speaks for her outstanding English skills.


Crystal is not only a writer and translator but also a poet. Here is a Youtube video based on one of her poems, "Happy Big 6-0, Cupertino" :

On Thanksgiving 2012, Crystal began writing a weekly fashion blog "Flatter Your figure," which gained subscriptions in tens of thousands and continues to grow strong. However, Crystal stopped fashion blooging to devote herself into book writing. Her book, A Poetic Portal to Chinese Culture, takes the reader through an imaginary calendar to experience all the Chinese holidays of the year and enjoy classical Chinese poems with seasonal themes, all translated into elegant English. The book is in the collections of the Sunnyvale and Santa Clara city libraries after librarian review.
