Plan a weekend writing retreat

  A couple of weeks back when I felt stuck…  I had to remind myself of what makes me happy. When I was honest with myself I came to the conclusion that I love to be in nature and to write. It’s when I feel happiest and most free. I remembered one of my friends had mentioned going on a writing retreat where basically he…

Walk and Talk Interview Series on my Youtube!

I started a YouTube Channel one year ago because I had the idea and vision to share stories visually. This channel is meant to capture all of the things I have in my brain, and the things and people I experience that I want to remember and immortalize in video. I have been able to meet some great people and it’s only in the last…

On My Radar: Scalloped edge swimsuit for Summer

I’ve never been a huge fan of one piece swimsuits, just because for a small and short person like me it ends up flattening me more than flattering me… but I found one recently that I’m kind of obsessed with and wanted to share with you in case you wanted to give one piece swimsuits another chance. I got this one from Marshall’s (It’s from…

Confessions of (Asian American) Hollywood Assistants

Growing up on the East Coast, I knew what the concept of celebrities and Hollywood was, but didn’t really know much about the business of Entertainment, let alone the career paths it offered. Now that I’m in Los Angeles, I’ve met a lot of people in the Entertainment industry who work in Talent Agencies- the management companies that handle and facilitate the careers of all…

The difference between Boyfriend vs Partner

As I’ve gotten older, the way I use and define the word “boyfriend” has changed considerably. When I was younger and more indecisive, it insinuated someone I “hung out with” and liked for the time being. Nowadays it’s gotten even more intense. For me, a boyfriend is a partner. If you’re going to spend that much time, energy and money on another person why would…

Crazy Rich Asians full cast with predictions- who is playing who?

As I write this, Crazy Rich Asians the movie is in production in Singapore (also in Malaysia). I wrote a blogpost on who I would cast in the movie four years ago (August 2013) when I first read the book that summer. Then it was announced that it would be in fact made into a movie. As you can imagine, I was more than ecstatic…

How to find your Soulmate

In just the last few years I’ve had the honor of meeting some incredible rare specimen type of people that I can consider to be soulmate material (professionally, personally and romantically). I did a blogpost on this before (here), but I wanted to do a video since the idea of soulmates has been popping up time and time again especially recently. I might sound crazy…

11 green flags that showed me he’s a keeper

We’ve all heard/read/been in some unfortunate and downright offensive situations that happen in modern dating (I mean Tinder Nightmares exist!), but very rarely do you hear or see of the text message exchanges that are just wow and life changing in a good way. After seeing a lot of articles floating around on the internet talking about some disheartening online dating encounters, I wanted to share…

Why I REALLY moved to LA from NYC

As you may or may not know… I lived in New York for 6 of my most formative years. After a one week visit to both LA and SF (for 48 hours) back in April 2015, I came back to NYC only to decide to quit my job and move to the west coast. Two years ago this month (May 2015 to be exact), I…
