*Exclusive* Interview with LA Artist, Joseph Lee

Ever see something so badass/amazing/beautiful on Instagram you’re just inspired and need to know more? Well that’s exactly what happened with @joeyunlee. I saw his artwork on instagram and just had to meet him.  He graciously agreed to give me some of his time and so we scheduled to meet early morning on a very hot Saturday. He arrived a bit late because he was…

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…

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…

The Adventure that is (my)Life

“I love how spontaneous and adventurous your life is” Ha- I wouldn’t say my life is adventurous… I’m not skydiving and eating bizarre foods…From the outside in, all you see are the pretty photos I post on instagram of the things I see or experience here. But yes, I guess it’s relatively true. If there is anything that my life is, it’s one hell of…

New City, New Banner

I still can’t believe I’m actually here. You know, in LA. It’s about time that I changed my “about me” description and banner now that I’m officially in Los Angeles, don’t you think? Out of the 4 options, I’ve only put 3 on the blog. What do you think? Let me know 🙂 Before: After: Now who wants to help me with my whole website? 😛 Special…

LA vision board

I’ve had quite the imagination ever since I was young. I used to go through catalogs that advertised houses and home goods, clipping out items for “my dream home,” flipping through magazines for photos that caught my eye and words that described the kind of person I wanted to be. There was even a point when every inch of my room during high school was…

Why I moved to LA

To many people, my decision to move to Los Angeles seemed like an impulsive, random and almost reckless decision. In reality, moving was something on my mind for quite some time; I just didn’t know it was going to be LA until that time I visited for a week in April. Fact: I did not move for a significant other. I did not move for a job….

Feel Life

My thoughts today can be summarized through this quote: Don’t sit and wait. Get out there, feel life. Touch the sun, and immerse in the sea.  -Rumi It couldn’t be more fitting for my life right now.  Reminder to self:  Let yourself feel what’s going on around you and inside you. Embrace the unknown. Just do it.  Don’t sit and wait. Get out there.  …
