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….

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…

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.”…

*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…

On my Radar: Korean restaurants not in K-town, NYC

Full disclosure: i’m not a food writer and I’m definitely not the foodiest person out there… but if there’s anything I do know, I’d like to think it’s good Korean food: how it’s made, what it looks like, and what it tastes like. I grew up watching and helping the women in my family cook. When I was younger, my grandma would take the time and care…
