Awesome Asian American Women dinner

In the beginning of 2016, I posted this online on Twitter and Facebook. This was about 4/5 months after I moved to LA, but finding my “tribe” has been something that I’ve been on the lookout for, for as long as I can remember. I simply “put it out there” literally on the internet, so that anyone who saw it, or fit the bill would maybe,…

Things I learn from my Rare Specimen (that apply in business and life)

Turns out that my heart was damaged in all sorts of ways when I left New York. Needless to say, moving to LA was a good restart for me. LA is where I met my rare specimen- someone who seems too good to be real, but indeed exists. (more of my rare specimen dictionary here) Yes, we’re long distance, but ever since he entered my…

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.”…

My red carpet interview video footage from the Asian World Film Festival!

I’m sure you’ve seen red carpet interviews sometime in your life before. I know I did before I went on the red carpet myself to interview the honorees and guests at the Asian World Film Festival (my last blog post on that here). But trust me when I say it’s easier than it looks.

I wrote a guest post for Kollaboration LA!

I freely admit that I’m not the best writer, but Kollaboration Los Angeles was so kind in allowing me to share my thoughts on their inaugural conference on their blog. Here’s my first guest post in Los Angeles! Click here to Read on for my usual cheesy, thoughtfulness.  Here’s a glimpse of what you missed in video form: A blog post from the conference I did…

*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…

Interview with Cynthia Koo, all abao making things that matter (in business and life)

If you follow me on instagram, you already know how much I love asian bakeries/snacks, ESPECIALLY buns (pineapple buns and char siu bao to be exact). So when I saw what my friend Cynthia was working on lately, I had to learn more. Combine my love for buns with an appreciation for puns, stationery, thoughtfulness and things made with love, and you have Wonton In a…

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…
