First post of 2016

I’ve been thinking a lot about 2016 and the things I want to improve on this year. They’re not resolutions, rather, they’re things I’ve been working on for years now but hope to really solidify into my habits with renewed focus and commitment this year. Within my theme of Focus and Discipline, in 2016 I’d really like to focus on Creativity. I was listening to this podcast…

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…

I finally went! OIJI- korean restaurant in the East Village, NYC

If you’re in the mood for Korean food and you want a place where you’re given a bunch of free banchan (side dishes), with massive amounts of food… then go to K-town. You can go with a large group, eat until you’re stuffed and throw back a few bottles of soju amidst the loud chatter of the restaurant. You might even run into someone you…

On my Radar: Korean restaurants not in K-town, NYC

Full disclosure: i’m not a food writer and I’m definitely not the foodiest person out there… but if there’s anything I do know, I’d like to think it’s good Korean food: how it’s made, what it looks like, and what it tastes like. I grew up watching and helping the women in my family cook. When I was younger, my grandma would take the time and care…

Good bye 2014

I was looking through my photos and scrolling through my instagram when I realized I hardly recognize who I was a month ago, let alone a year ago. Have you ever looked at a photo of yourself and thought:”wow I feel like a completely different person now. That feels like ages ago?” That’s how I have felt this entire year after every challenge (which was basically…

Happy Lunar New Year

I realized yesterday that it has been about a month since I last posted! It’s not because I have nothing to write about (this is never the case), but rather because I have so many things to write about and i don’t know where to begin. Seeing as how I have just come back from a two week trip in Asia- I visited Hong Kong…

Happy 2014

Happy first day of 2014!! Hope it’s been nothing but good for you so far. 🙂 Last night, I was thinking about how last week didn’t quite feel like Christmas for me (maybe it was the odd weather) but strangely, this week, I could feel the approach of the new year in my bones. I don’t know what it is… but I have a feeling…

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…

3 for 2013

2013. Another chance to get it right and another chance to outdo ourselves and the year before. Yesterday was day 3 of 2013, so I took the time to think about and write down my 3 New Year’s resolutions (4 just didn’t sound right.) Once you publish something, you’re held accountable for it. Here’s to hoping these resolutions will make me a better student, entrepreneur…
