Why I REALLY moved to LA from NYC

As you may or may not know… I lived in New York for 6 of my most formative years. After a one week visit to both LA and SF (for 48 hours) back in April 2015, I came back to NYC only to decide to quit my job and move to the west coast. Two years ago this month (May 2015 to be exact), I…

What dating a non-Asian taught me about myself

A few months ago I wrote a blogpost on why I’ll never use dating apps again. (There was even a video made of it). I’ll have you know that I haven’t used a dating app in months/ever since because like I mentioned in the post…I really do believe that you meet the right people when you’re just doing your thing, becoming your best self. I don’t know…

Lucky Rice Feast LA

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of attending the Lucky Rice LA Feast at Vibiana, in DTLA. Believe it or not, this is the 4th time I’ve attended! The first one was in NYC, the ones after that were after I moved to LA. It’s kind of crazy to think how much has changed everytime I go. One thing that hasn’t changed is my obsession with discovering and…

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,…

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.

Editorial of the week: Modern Day In the Mood for Love

Oh boy do I love a great fashion editorial. I came across this editorial on a blog, rolala loves (who seems to share my love for fashion editorials), and was instantly wooed, especially because it pays an elegant tribute to one of the most aesthetically beautiful movies I’ve seen: In the Mood for Love. Whether or not you’re familiar with director Wong Kar Wai’s work, you’ll love…

Crazy Rich Asians movie soundtrack

My blog post on “Who I’d Cast in Crazy Rich Asians the Movie” gets the most views on my blog to this day, even though I wrote it almost a year ago… so I thought I would follow up with a post on a “soundtrack.”  If you haven’t heard, they’re working on the movie, a sequel is in the works and production is to start early…

Editorial of the week: Ling Yue in for Elle Hong Kong

It took awhile, but Spring has finally sprung! Nothing says Spring quite like florals. Pair that with some couture, and you have this beautifully styled fashion editorial, featuring model Ling Yue in the May issue of Elle Hong Kong.

Editorial of the week: New York Travel

The book Crazy Rich Asians has been on my mind (when is it not?) so I figured it would be appropriate to share this editorial with you. Let’s flashback to “New York Travel” which was taken for GQ China in November 2009. Even though this was taken 5 years ago (believe it or not), it is still relevant and even more prevalent today. I especially love…

Editorial of the week: Flowers in December

December is finally here. I’ve been waiting for December to arrive just so I could share this editorial. Every time I look at this I’m enchanted. The bold lip. The elegant flowers. The exaggerated silhouettes. Simple but dramatic, like everything December should be.
