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…

Feast your eyes on General Tso

Surely you’ve heard of General Tso’s Chicken… In fact you’ve probably ordered it before. The fried boneless chicken in a sweet and spicy sauce, found in Chinese restaurants across the United States…  I’ll admit it was one of my favorites growing up. mmm I have since moved onto more authentic Chinese dishes: dan dan noodles, xiao long bao, char siu bao…ever since I found out that…

Who i’d cast in CRAZY RICH ASIANS: the movie

**This post was originally written August, 2013. The majority of the cast has been announced but not all roles have been made official for the actors. In this blogpost I predict the roles they will fill. There was one thought going through my mind as I turned the last few pages of the book Crazy Rich Asians: “This has got to be made into a…

Asia Represent at Asia Society

I’m not in the Upper East side too often but it seems that whenever I make the trip, it is always a good time. The last time I visited The Asia Society was to see Maureen Chiquet the CEO of Chanel speak and before that, I learned more about the design scene in Hong Kong and even at my first visit to the Asia Society,…

Front Row at MOCA NYC

Just a stone’s throw away from the hustle and bustle of Canal Street in Chinatown you’ll find a quieter street with a hidden gem: MOCA NYC. Back in January, I visited MOCA for the first time to attend a panel, “Female, Fashionable, New York“, to hear perspectives of three Asian American women in the Fashion industry. This is when I found out that MOCA would have…

The Foods we ate in NY- adventure week continued

So after our little adventure to the Brooklyn Bridge, I took my sister to Chinatown (one of my favorite places in New York), to eat some of my favorite foods that she’s never tried before. It’s only natural that after some adventure she tries new foods too, don’t you think? Besides, getting bullied by the weather and walking quite a bit is EXHAUSTING- we were…

Snow day at Sotheby’s

February may have been Fashion month, but March is Art month. Even though it is indeed about time for Spring, yesterday it was snowing/raining. Either way, my plans included heading to Sotheby’s for a Chinese art tour.

CNY Brunch at Bloomie’s

One lovely Sunday morning (February 10) amidst Fashion Week events and after the blizzard Nemo hit, I had the privilege of attending a private fashion brunch at Bloomingdale’s to celebrate the Chinese New Year. (See more photos after the jump!)

Good Luck Ritual

Just before the beginning of the Year of the Snake and the craziness that is Fashion week, I made a trip to Chinatown to pay a visit to the Mahayana Buddhist temple. I first came here  for school with my East Asian Art and Civilization course about 2 years ago and ever since, I try to stop by whenever I’m in the neighborhood to get…
