From LA to Tokyo

Last night, I had dinner with my friend who is vising Tokyo from LA. We took a few modeling and acting classes together in LA, but I think this is the first time we actually met up outside of classes or work. I hadn’t seen her in over a year, so imagine all the catching … Continue Reading


  Yesterday, I had a glorious reunion with one of my best friends from SoCal. It’s hard to realize that it’s been a year since I last saw him.. time flies so quickly. Anyways, we had a late lunch/dessert with his friends at Bubby’s in Yokohama Landmark Tower (their apple pie was superb!), and my friend and … Continue Reading

Partners in crime

I don’t think I’ve really mentioned anything about my music here, so this post may be a bit random. Today, I had a meeting of sorts with my music producer and his friend whom I will be collaborating with on a brand new track. Not too surprisingly, our meeting lasted a couple hours at two … Continue Reading

An early Valentine date

Tonight, I spent a lovely evening with my good friend Amy for an early Valentine’s day dinner. It was my first time at Legato, an Italian restaurant which overlooks the busy nightlife of Shibuya, Tokyo. Apparently, they turn the restaurant into a club for New Years Eve – I definitely want to come back for … Continue Reading

Christmas-ing in Shibuya

I enjoyed a lovely Christmas evening in Shibuya with my friend Kellie (yes, also my co-worker!). She introduced me to Cafe Manduka, which serves boba drinks and other delicious desserts. And, yes, we did our shopping beforehand and also proceeded to do even more shopping afterwards. This is something I never did in the states … Continue Reading

Photo diary from my first test shoot in Japan! I had a great time working with Noli and Niki, my photographer and MUA. We made our way to Toyosu, a city located near the harbor. I’ve never posted before & after photos from my previous photo shoots, but I thought it would be fun to … Continue Reading

San Diego the extraordinary

I know this post consists of a random collection of photos, but there is one common theme. I decided to spend part of my last weekend in Orange County in San Diego to visit some friends and explore more of its greatness. Hopefully you can tell by my photos that I had some amazing food… … Continue Reading

Sweet paradise

Every time I look at this glorious picture of Tebo Tebo Tea Lounge’s brick toast, my mouth begins to water. After getting my hair cut & colored by my friend Mariko (she’s done my hair before, check out my previous post here), I met up with my girlfriend at Tebo for lunch. I enjoyed catching up … Continue Reading

A treat

Shibuya day 2.Today,  I was able to explore other parts of the city with a friend. More good food, more shopping. The cake is from a fancy cafe called comme ca. Doesn’t it remind you of gelato? We also randomly passed by Opening Ceremony and there was a live radio broadcast called `Go! Hunt My … Continue Reading
