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.”…

*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.

Millions

 Whenever Thursday and Friday rolls around, I can’t help but be struck by a bit of nostalgia with all the “#TBT” (ThrowbackThursday) and “#FBF” (flashbackfriday) posts I see on instagram. Today I randomly thought  of that time I was waiting for my friend to come meet me in front of the Forever 21 in Causeway bay, Hong Kong when I was visiting back in January….

13 of life’s winning moments

As you may have noticed both on instagram and facebook, I am a huge quote junkie. Naturally, out of all the things I saw and took pictures of in Asia (and trust me I took a LOT), I’ll start by sharing “13 of life’s winning moments” as seen on Hong Kong streets. Even though at one point during my trip I got dehydrated from all…

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…
