My “dating app” blogpost comes to life in a video!

As overwhelming as the internet can be sometimes, it can be equally awesome. Do you remember my “Why I’ll never be on a dating app again blogpost? Thanks to the internet, I had the awesome opportunity of getting connected to Kore Asian Media who brought this post to life in the form of a short film starring the talented Angie Kim and Topher Park. Charles found…

What I did for Lunar New Year 2017

My idea of a perfect weekend is good food, good company/conversation, good rest, some nature and if possible, no or less technology…. This past weekend for Lunar New Year was exactly that. I went to Arcadia to spend the weekend with my friend Rowena to feed my soul and stomach! I put in video form what the weekend consisted of. Vlogging is not very natural to…

Gallant x Tablo x Eric Nam- Cave Me In Review

A few months ago towards the end of 2016, I had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Eric Nam for the Kore Asian Media Annual issue. I wasn’t a super fan when I met him at the time (helps to maintain objectivity) but after speaking with him for about an hour, I walked away from our conversation with a hunch that this guy was going to…

First YouTube video of the year!

As mentioned in my last blog post, I plan to make more YouTube videos this year. For my first video of 2017, I wanted to re-introduce myself so I put together a 40 random facts about me video. I just noticed some editing mistakes (eeek) but I did give you fair warning that I’m not very good with editing video just yet. I hope you enjoy…

CAPE 25th anniversary gala

I’ve been to a fair share of galas during my NYC days but last night’s event at Belasco Theatre was unlike anything I had experienced before. CAPE (Coalition Of Asian Pacifics In Entertainment), was celebrating its 25th anniversary with a very star studded line up of guests spanning across multiple generations. Like most galas it included red carpet arrivals/ interviews and a silent auction but instead of a stuffy dinner where everyone…

What I would tell my college self

When I look at this picture, I think to myself: “I look different, but the same.” When I think about the person I am today, versus the one in the photo, I know for a fact that I am so much more confident and happier than I was back then. It’s crazy to think how much has changed in just a few years because I…

How I know I am going to be Successful

I know I am going to be successful. I also know this is a big statement. The truth is, I never believed it before. People would point it out or mention it. I’d brush it off. Someone used to tell me “I know you’re going to be successful because of your character.” Even though that came from someone close to me, I didn’t believe it… but I finally know what he…

What I need in a relationship

I’ve spent a loooot of time thinking about what matters most to me since I’ve moved from New York to Los Angeles. Of course, I did most of this thinking even before I moved, but it’s really now that I’ve been able to “start again” (especially after college) and build a new and stronger foundation. It’s what I expected and counted on to happen with the…

Broken up but not broken

My rare specimen, you know the one I was in a long distance relationship with, and I are no longer together. It’s taken me a week to decide whether or not I was going to write about this but here I am. The days after it happened, whenever someone asked me “how was your weekend, how are you?”just casually in conversation, I said good/fine…. and I meant it….

STTA-Quarter Life reflections

I’m finally 25 after what seems like an eternity.  Here is a video of what I’ve learned so far and what continues to drive me moving forward. I’ve learned and grown so much in the short time since graduation and I can’t imagine what I’ll continue to discover in the year(s) ahead. Hope you liked the video! This video is dedicated to my rare specimen,…
