American Beauty Photoshoot with Ben Baker

Back in April, I had the incredible opportunity of being photographed by Ben Baker for his latest project, 1-100. He has photographed the likes of President Obama, Warren Buffett, Richard Branson, Bono, Diane von Furstenberg and even the Olsen twins! Although I’m camera shy (you’ll notice more nature photos than selfies on my instagram), I was eager to participate. This project was going to share the…

Hopeful Romantic in “Marry Me”

This past weekend I found myself watching a movie that you’ve probably never heard of. It’s one of my favorite movies, partly because it satisfies all of my hopeless romantic fantasies, but mostly because it is able to express my thoughts in the most direct (albeit cliche) way possible. Lucy Liu who plays Rae Carter sums up my optimistic view on relationships: Mom: So what are…

Happy Lunar New Year

I realized yesterday that it has been about a month since I last posted! It’s not because I have nothing to write about (this is never the case), but rather because I have so many things to write about and i don’t know where to begin. Seeing as how I have just come back from a two week trip in Asia- I visited Hong Kong…

NAAAP-NY Moon Festival Honoree Gala 2013

I don’t know about you, but ever since I graduated college, i’ve been on a constant grind. When I’m not working, I’m exercising or cooking. When I’m not doing any of that, I’m working  (read: blogging), meeting new people and doing new things. I’ve learned that my free time is valuable. I have the decision to pick and choose what I do for leisure and who…

My first [MOVIE TICKET GIVEAWAY]!: The Spy starring Daniel Henney

Buzzfeed did a (somewhat recent) post on “Asian Leading Men who deserve more airtime”. If you haven’t seen the list of 27 actors yet, I’d definitely take a peek at the amazing, not to mention handsome talent here. You might see some new faces but one of them should be familiar: Daniel Henney.  Not familiar with him or maybe you’ve been waiting for another chance to…

Who i’d cast in CRAZY RICH ASIANS: the movie

**This post was originally written August, 2013. The majority of the cast has been announced but not all roles have been made official for the actors. In this blogpost I predict the roles they will fill. There was one thought going through my mind as I turned the last few pages of the book Crazy Rich Asians: “This has got to be made into a…

Asia Represent at Asia Society

I’m not in the Upper East side too often but it seems that whenever I make the trip, it is always a good time. The last time I visited The Asia Society was to see Maureen Chiquet the CEO of Chanel speak and before that, I learned more about the design scene in Hong Kong and even at my first visit to the Asia Society,…
