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…
An honest and fair appraisal from The Bumbys
One of the many highlights of my weekend: Getting “an honest and fair appraisal” from the Bumbys. And by The Bumbys I mean Gill and Jill Bumby, the masked figures you see in these photos.
NAAAP-NY Moon Festival Honoree Gala 2013
I don’t know about you, but ever since I graduated college, i’ve been on a constant grind. When I’m not working, I’m exercising or cooking. When I’m not doing any of that, I’m working (read: blogging), meeting new people and doing new things. I’ve learned that my free time is valuable. I have the decision to pick and choose what I do for leisure and who…
The Multicultural Gala- an Evening of Many Cultures, at the Met
It’s not often that you get to start off the week celebrating cultures with one of your favorite people in the city, at the legendary Metropolitan museum of art. On a beautiful Monday (September 23, 2013 (yes this is a late post)) I had the experience of accompanying my mentor to the Multicultural Gala at the Met. It was described as a ‘black tie affair’…
The Best and Brightest at Baublebar
Last night I stopped by the Baublebar pop-up shop in Soho for an evening of art, shopping and cocktails. Baublebar is one of the jewelry e-commerce sites I’ve been keeping my eye on so I thought it would be a great idea to “meet” the brand in person. Needless to say, it gave a great first impression.
Corporate/life lessons in fable form
This week I attended the 1st Annual NYU/Dartmouth joint career event. I emailed last minute and asked if I could go despite it being sold out because the title, “Adaptive Careers: How to Succeed in a Rapidly Evolving World” caught my eye. I thought it would be relevant to not only myself but also to those of you reading my blog! (You know I’m always looking…
Do Epic Sh*t
I had the opportunity to tag along with one of my editors for Creative Week. Creative Week prides itself for being “where advertising, design and digital media collide with the arts.” This includes a lot of my interests so it was a great first time experience. Since I was one of the few students in attendance I feel almost obligated to share some of the things…
Memorable moments at the Met
After dinner one night over a year ago (sometime in January), my friend and I walked until we found ourselves in front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art where we saw an elegantly dressed crowd exiting the museum. At the time, I had no idea anything happened afterhours at the Met (I guess I imagined something like those “Night at the museum” movies) so I…
Macaron Day NYC
When I found out that March 20 was Macaron day NYC, I got really excited for a moment but then realized that I probably would not be able to participate in its yummy goodness because of classes and meetings I had scheduled for the day. Still, I shared the link on Facebook so that even though I couldn’t take part, at least other people could….
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!)
