A New Year

Wow has 2016 been one hell of a year. Professionally speaking it was awesome! We produced our first ever multicultural cabaret and will have another show in March of 2017. I got out of a toxic relationship and couldn’t be happier. Being single in the city is fun! I have learned so much about what […]

We’re Not All Ninjas the Podcast

Stereotyping, white washing, and yellow face is something Asian American actors have been dealing with since the dawn of cinema. You’d think in this day and age we would be past all that and have progressed to a point where API (Asian Pacific Islanders) actors are seen and heard equally in film. Sadly, this is […]

Where’s the Diversity at Auditions?

As I sit here in the audition waiting room for an ECC (that’s equity chorus call for you nonactors), I am saddened and pissed off by what I see. Three black girls and me the one “Asian”. Where the hell are my ladies of color at? Where are my fellow Hapas (multiracial people), Asian singers, […]

Marche des Enfants Rouge – Paris

I had some of the best Moroccan food at the oldest covered marketplace in Paris. Established in the early 1600’s, Marche des Enfants Rouge was named for the orphaned children who were cared for nearby and clothed in red (the color of charity).

People actually try and […]

Sleep Your Way to Great Skin!

I’m obsessed with sleeping masks. (Ha you probably thought this was going to be a dirty post). Especially Sephora’s! Not only are they cheap (who doesn’t love that?) but they come in 11 different flavors to match exactly what your skin needs. Also, they are never tested on any animals! At $4.00 each, it’s easy […]

Pho Sure – East Village

I’m obsessed with Vietnamese food right now. I don’t know why but I seriously could eat a bowl of spicy pho every single day. I’m not exaggerating either. I’m currently in SoCal right now and I’m dreaming of Pho Sure back in the East Village of NYC. My dear and wonderful friend Viet took me […]

She is an advocate for human rights and an inspiration for all. Jennifer Kumiyama was born with Arthrogryposis and uses a wheelchair daily.  Kumiyama […]

Naples Rib Co. – Belmont Shore, CA

I’m always in search of good BBQ and you know what? California has plenty of it. One such spot happens to be a few blocks away from where I grew up. Naples Rib Co. They have been around since 1984! So obviously they know how to BBQ. I’m a glutton and I couldn’t decide upon […]
