I wrote a guest post for Kollaboration LA!

I freely admit that I’m not the best writer, but Kollaboration Los Angeles was so kind in allowing me to share my thoughts on their inaugural conference on their blog. Here’s my first guest post in Los Angeles! Click here to Read on for my usual cheesy, thoughtfulness.  Here’s a glimpse of what you missed in video form: A blog post from the conference I did…

What I love: Quora

I like to read. Some people like to read the paper everyday. I like to read Quora everyday. It’s one app that I use everyday alongside google maps and instagram. What is Quora exactly? Quora is a question-and-answer website where questions are created, answered, edited and organized by its community of users. The way I like to describe it: a reddit but for more… profound topics (at…

The Broad Museum- Opening Day in Los Angeles

Here’s yet another thing to add to your “LA to-do list”: The Broad Museum (pronounced like road) located in Downtown Los Angeles on Grand Avenue. Here’s a glimpse of what I saw on opening day. You’ll want to visit the next time you’re in town.

Exclusive interview with Pocket Sun, Founder of SoGal

24 years old. Pretty. Smart. Ambitious. Empowering.  As much as I’d like to say that I’m describing myself, I’m describing Pocket (Yiqing) Sun, founder of SoGal. I’ve met a few CEO’s in Los Angeles (there seem to be plenty who are younger than age 30) but what stands out about Pocket is that she was born and raised in China. Let me reword that for you:…

California is kind of perfect for me

I’ve been here for a few months now (it’ll be officially 2 months in a day or two)! At this point, I’m pretty sure the initial novelty has worn off. That being said, I think it’s safe to say: California/LA is perfect for me. (side note: if you’re not sure why I’m in LA in the first place, read my blog post on why I moved, here)….

My intent- what’s your word?

 Over the weekend I attended Kollaboration’s very first EMPOWER conference. It’s an event where API youth & young professionals gather to learn directly from some of the community’s most inspirational individuals. I was happy to be in attendance to support a great group that is all about sharing communities, generations, industries and innovative minds. It’s the kind of conference I wish existed when I was younger. There’s…

My first art gallery experience in LA! The Street Art House x Paper and Fabric

Wherever there is street art, I’ll be there. I mean, I snap photos of it wherever I spot it (as you’ve probably seen on Instagram) so when I found out that there was going to be a street art pop up gallery, of course I had to go. Last night I went to the inaugural opening reception of The Street Art House which featured 8…

*Exclusive* Interview with ‘Always’ Filmmaker, Derek Ting

I’m going to my first movie screening in LA this week, and what makes it doubly special is that I’m going to support someone and something that I’ve been keeping my eye on for years now. I’ve blogged about Ryan Matthew Chan and how he in his early 20’s created Acceptance, a film that introduces the “Third Culture Kid” perspective, something I wish I saw more…

Blogiversary

I got an email this morning saying that it was 3 years ago today that I started my blog. THREE YEARS AGO! Gosh, for how long it has been, my blog is nowhere near where I want it to be but I’m still here writing, and I’m committed to getting more consistent, slowly but surely. In light of the anniversary, I can’t help but think about…
