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…

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…

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.”…

A day in San Francisco

Not only did I visit San Jose (blog post on what I did here), I visited San Francisco which is farther up north. The summary of my day in SF: 1) The Presidio. I had no idea a place like this existed in SF. It’s one of the few places in the city that you’ll see untouched stretches of trees. If you’ve been in SF…

The Broad Museum- Opening Day in Los Angeles

Here’s yet another thing to add to your “LA to-do list”: The Broad Museum (pronounced like road) located in Downtown Los Angeles on Grand Avenue. Here’s a glimpse of what I saw on opening day. You’ll want to visit the next time you’re in town.

*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…
