I remember once we ran into my follower and she really wants he makes cooking videos. My husband now is very busy working on construction work and other stuff. We have a lot of work need to get done before baby is born, so right now we can’t make videos together regularly, maybe only once a month, I’m not sure. It’ll be mostly only me in the videos. I’ll share more of my pregnancy experiences since I feel so much better on 2nd trimester. 😊 I have a lot of more energy. Hopefully my third trimester will like this too. #birthday

Also, she can be seen munching on a variety of foods like a Chinese buffet, Japanese snacks, weight-loss diets, pregnancy cravings, spicy ox oil pig feet hot pot, and much more. Isn’t she amusing?

Body Measurements

Ever traditional Chinese outfit and Lolita fashion suits on her five feet and six inches frame. Altogether, she is a package of a pretty face, tall height, and striking fashion sense.


In 2013, she came up with the idea of beauty and fashion content for the channel. And she named the YouTube channel into the username DesignsByYumi, which mainly focused on DIYs, clothing transformations, and fashion style content. Each of the videos amassed millions of views such as ‘3 Cute&Sexy DIYs: DIY Pastel Gothic Spiked Bra +DIY Cut out Panties + DIY Cat Keyhole Sweater’, ’10 Useful&Cute Makeup Hacks For Boys&Girls’, ‘Full Face Makeup Using Peel Off Lip Stain Challenge! How Will It Turns Out?’ and many more.

Next, she launched the second channel different from the usual DIYs stuff. She named it ‘玉米Yumiking Vlog’ and filled entertaining contents like Ramen challenges, going for Chinese Buffet, having sushi with her boyfriend, and shopping haul. Yumi rules both DIYs and fun stuff altogether on the YouTube channel.


Once, she revealed how she used to be a victim of bullying in school because of her fat appearance. One of the pretty girls shamed her by calling ugly and fat girls with elephant girls in front of the crowd. At 14, she used to weight around 125 pounds-heaviest among her mates. One day she gathered her guts and asked a guy for a date. But he rejected Yumi because of the chubby appearance.

So she thought to change her lifestyle and get into a weight loss program by herself. She used to live in the dorm, where she ordered a small amount of rice and a singular dish to gulp on. What’s more, is- she tried what Chinese celebrities did for shedding some pounds. She had plain boiled vegetables and avoided having meat most of the time. Consequently, it aided her to get in the shape and elope from bullies.

Social Media

A YouTube person is active in other social media accounts too. She is available on both Instagram and Twitter, followed by over 60K fans collectively. Yumi will soon celebrate one million subscriptions with the haste of time; for now, she owns 861K subscribers. And the trio of social media isn’t stranger to Yumi’s eloquence in Hanfu and Lolita outfits
