On my radar: Zen Pencils

Someone sent me a comic that described exactly how I felt. And then I spent the next few minutes clicking around the site that it came from. Usually when I click around aimlessly on a site, I end up regretting it but every moment spent on this site, Zen Pencils was totally worth it. They’re quotes in cartoon form. If you couldn’t tell, I’m kind…

Holiday wish list

With the Holidays here I can’t help but think about the special people in my life and the things I would want/get for them. A little late for this post, and a handful of these items are on backorder but it doesn’t hurt to imagine, right? FOR MY SISTER: A Little Bits Toy Kit. Yea sure, the photos on the site show little kids playing with…

Link of Hearts- Interview with founder, Elizabeth

I’ve been wearing this necklace to death lately and have gotten a lot of compliments on it. Sometimes I’ll just say “Oh it’s a Link of Hearts necklace” and they’ll nod and smile. Sometimes I’ll tell them more. Truth is, it might just look like a nice gold strand,  but there’s a story behind it. According to NIMH (National Institute of Mental Health), major depression…

My favorite places in Koreatown, Los Angeles

I’m still pretty new to Los Angeles (almost 5 months now) but I already have a few favorite places in each neighborhood. Here are my favorite places in Koreatown (so far). The funny thing is they’re not even Korean-food related.. Oh hey it's the real life filter that shows up on snapchat when you're in @koreatown! If you know what I mean you know what I…

Confident

That photo up there ^ is….: 1) One of the rare occasions you’ll see me all dressed/gussied up. 2) One of the few selfies of me that exist (I rarely take them). I felt confident and attractive at that moment so I decided I would capture it. As I write this I’m not wearing any makeup. My hair is tied up in a messy bun….

My first ever post on Quora

I’ve definitely mentioned this before, but I’ve been on Quora, admiring from afar for quite some time now. The content I read on the app/site resonates with me and it never fails to give me that dose of humanity. I’ve never felt so connected to an app. I’ve sung its praises in a previous post here. So after being a reader, I finally mustered up the courage…

Bruce Lee 75

Today, November 27th, would’ve been the 75th birthday of the man and legend, Bruce Lee.  I haven’t watched all of his movies and I don’t know every detail of his life (though I did see “Kung Fu,” a play based on him), but I think it’s pretty obvious why I (among many others) respect, appreciate and admire him. Before he passed in 1973, the legendary martial artist played…

Highlights of my week: 11/15-11/21

It’s amazing how much can happen in one week! This week I started a new job, I met more new people, I saw/experienced new things… Here are some highlights. View from the new job/office in Beverly Hills. Rest assured it’s just the neighborhood I happen to work in this time, it doesn’t make me snobby or whatever stereotype it has attached with it 🙂

Interview with Daniel Wu, Actor and Executive Producer, Into the Badlands

Confession: I don’t watch much TV. There are a lot of new television shows that sound intriguing but none that I personally feel compelled to watch and/or continue to watch….  until Into the Badlands (Premiering Sunday Nov 15 at 10pm). At first, I was hesitant. In writing, ““Into the Badlands” is a genre-bending martial arts series very loosely based on the classic Chinese tale “Journey to the West.”…

On my Radar: Kolaj- The Touch

I came across this song (The Touch) by Kolaj randomly somewhere and it has been on repeat since.
