Haven’t done this since last July, so I thought I’d bring it back again~

My Top #5 Music Videos that I’ve been watching over and over again recently:

#5 Bloom (Disney Remix) by Pogo

If you know me, you know that I love Disney Princesses, electronic beats, and mashups. Someone was just brilliant enough to combine a few of my favorite things. Thanks to Erick Fix of Robotic Raptor Studios for sending me this link, and be sure to check out his videos (they’re amazing)!

#4 Don’t Go Home by GD & TOP (of Big Bang)
(Click on the “CC” button for English subtitles)

This concept for this song is…I dunno…just adorable, and I couldn’t help but love it. Plus, the song itself is upbeat and catchy and fun, so here it is~

#3 Hands Up by 2PM
(Click on the “CC” button for English subtitles)

I have to admit that I didn’t want to like this song the first time I heard it, but before I knew it, I was singing this song under my breath while jogging on the treadmill and I knew it was over. I was hooked.

#2 K-POP Til the World Ends by DJ Masa
(Click on the “CC” button for English subtitles)

As part of his bi-annual routine, Brazilian DJ Masa recently released the 2011, first-half-mashup of top 40 K-Pop hits. To be honest, the mashup is better than the majority of these 40 individual songs on their own.

#1 Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO

Shuffling, spoofing of zombie-apocalpyse flicks, LMFAO, and Quest Crew. I can’t find a single thing to complain about. Whenever I heard this song, I bust out shuffling. True story. Did it in the grocery store the other day in the canned vegetable aisle.

I know what you’re probably all saying, “GRACE, NO COMIC?! I WANTS COMIC! RAWR!”

I know, I know, but aside from work, I’ve been busy preparing a new project for this blog, and hopefully, by next week, you all will get to enjoy it, so keep checking back~

Don’t forget, another Faith Friday coming your way in two days! Check check check it out!

Honey, I’m hoooooome~

Fortunately, the move back to Maryland was nice and smooth. And now that I have my desk all set up in my room, I can start blogging again! Hurrah!

One of my final memories before I had left for merry Maryland was last weekend, when I got to go Skeet Shooting with a couple of friends.

It was my first time shooting a firearm, and as much as I enjoy first-person shooters in video games (like Duck Hunt), it was…different.

To be completely honest, it was a lot more difficult than I had anticipated. But once I understood the art behind shooting skeets, it wasn’t so bad.

(To see what’s actually going on in the vid above, click to full-screen.)

As much as I miss everyone from New York/New Jersey, it’s really good to be back home in Maryland.

Ciao!

When it comes to coffee, I will never turn a cup down.

But when I saw one of my favorite Youtube vloggers grab a cup of Starbuck’s newly-released “Trenta” sized-coffee, I was actually scared.

Started to make me wonder…how will they top the ridiculousness that is the 31-oz “Trenta?”

A “Cuarenta?” “Ochenta?” “Waterboardingenta?”

Either way, it’s not going to be pretty.

I dunno. I think that I’ll still try a Trenta…someday…

…you know. If I’m planning on never sleeping again. Or peeing non-stop. Non. Stop.

I left my computer charger at home over Christmas and have been computer-less for the past couple of days…

But thanks to some nice peoples, I am now fully charged and ready to go!

Happy New Years, my friends ❤

2010 was an uphill kind of year, but I fully anticipate the adventures involved with 2011. I’m so ready to fly through this new year. When I write an entry in 2012, I pray that it will be filled with lovely memories.

Usually, around this time, people on the Webernet go through their top ten favorite memories and looks-back at 2010. Here are mine.

  1. Haiti: This one event changed my outlook on life eternally. I am so grateful to everyone I was able to meet.
  2. I Wish I Was A Little Bit Taller: This blog was my first step to publicly express myself creatively, and the response was so much more generous that I had expected. Thank you all.
  3. Shanghai/Korea: The traveling was exhausting and difficult physically, but I was so inspired by everything that I saw…It was an architect’s paradise!
  4. My LEED Accreditation: I thought that I would never pass this exam. Thank you, God, for mercifully letting me pass!!!
  5. ISA New York 2010: Aside from getting to see my favorite YouTube artists and hang out with my lovely friends, I had never felt so proud of being an Asian American. It was an eye-opening experience.
  6. HD: My HD class/group/family at Metro…I learned so much from these brothers and sisters, and man…I am so grateful for their life stories and perspectives on life.
  7. Christmas 2010: Talk about a taste of Heaven. Want to see a clip? Click HERE to see what I’m raving about.
  8. A New Job: After December 2009’s disappointing job incident, being granted a brand new job opportunity in January 2010 was an unexpected surprise and blessing. Praise God!
  9. The Random Moments: From cliff diving, to meeting Far East Movement, to seeing 2PM, meeting the Wondergirls in Chelsea, to the Metro Football Team winning their 2nd Year Championship…all these little happy random moments were awesome.
  10. Every Day, Really: God blessed/protected me and my family every single day. I love them so much, and am grateful for every day we have together in health and happiness.

What are your favorite memories?

I was fortunate to ring in the New Year with my closest friends in New Jersey. It was a little bit chaotic stuffing 40 people in a little room (as you will see in this video), but I wanted to share this little moment with you all.

Happy New Year~

It’s been over a month since our return from Haiti.

And before the memory falls cold in our minds, here’s a short film shot and edited from a fellow Haiti Teammate (Scott Kwak) that recaps our journey to the beautifully tragic nation of Haiti.

A HUGE thank you again to all who supported me financially and prayerfully, as well as my fellow Haiti Missions team members.

This Christmas, please consider bringing the gift of hope to the children at Grace International, by sponsoring a single child from Grace Village (as shown in the video).

From my first-hand experience, the difference that a sponsorship makes is witnessing a child escaping the clutches of death and being thrust into the opportunities of life.

Love you, my lovely readers~

It snowed today, and I couldn’t help but get excited for the winter~!

Okay, the “snow” was really just a dusting of flurries, but they were still really pretty.

As Christmas comes rushing towards us, I am doing my best to keep in mind (pardon the cliche), the real reason for the season.

Amidst the busyness of the city, the packed schedule, the late nights, and the lingering worries in the back of my mind of what my future holds, I find peace in remembering how much He loves us…that He would send His only Son to save us all.

I’m so grateful for where God has taken me this year. It’s been a rough patch of events, but I believe that He allowed me to grow up a little bit through those experiences.

And in the same way, I hope that my goals and passion grow up in the same way in 2011.

Stay warm, lovely readers~

Mmm...Marshmallows.

I love being an American.

Sure, America is flawed in many ways, but I wouldn’t have had such a musical magical fancy free night anywhere else in the world.

It started off with my friends Vicki and Grace. The three of us went to the Chelsea Theater in Manhattan for the Sound of Music’s 45th Anniversary, where they held a Sound of Music Sing-A-Long.

We are SO Ready to Sing Along (and thanks, Mom, for the roasted peanuts~)

(If you’re a fan of the Sound of Music, find a showing near you!)

These Sisters were REALLY Ready to Sing Along!

I not-so-surprisingly had SO MUCH FUN. If you knew me as a kid, I used to memorize, word-for-word, every old-school Disney VHS in existence. I even owned all of the sing-a-long videos and watched them till the tape wore out.

I felt like a little kid again, following the sing-a-long text at the bottom of the screen, and even clapped along with the rest of the audience. FUN!

All in all, a SPLENDID time.

After the movie was over, and after I said good-night to my friends, I traveled into the subway systems of NYC to head on home.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t really paying attention and ended up taking the wrong train a bit too far. When I realized how far off I was, I immediately got off of the car to backtrack. (I do this more often than you may think.)

That’s when I got another taste of awesome musicality.

I never had a chance to get his name, but this one guy had been serenading all of the impatient NYC commuters with some Stevie Wonder, Brian McKnight, and even Usher~ While I rarely ever tip the people singing in the subway systems, this guy was good. And he actually made my wait enjoyable. So a tip he got, and the vid below I shot. Let it Buuuuuurnnn~


I had to make a transfer on my way back, and I saw an elderly gentleman providing some old-timey entertainment as a miniature version of a one-man-band.

Maybe not as talented, but it still made me nostalgic of the music I used to hear on the Ocean City Boardwalk as a kid.

As I am preparing to leave for Haiti this Saturday, I am realizing more than ever how much we take for granted here. Things may be tough right now, but at least I can live in a society where I can draw comics, blog freely, and if I wanted to, dress like a Nun, run around in costume, sing “The Hills are Alive” at the top of my lungs, and do it all without fear or shame.

Yesterday was amazing. Simply amazing…

Not only for the free concert that Far East Movement was holding, but the fact that a group that I’ve been following for years has finally “made it”, becoming the first Asian-American group to hit the mainstream, hitting #2 on the Billboard Charts and going Platinum on their new album “Free Wired.” With Bruno Mars @ #1 on the Billboards, that means the top two mainstream songs right now are by Asian American artists…WOW.

 

FM in the House

 

Times are a-changing, and while I have always had “Asian Pride”, I have to say that right now, I am even prouder to be an Asian American.

The concert was smaller than I expected, in terms of turnout. But that led to a more intimate environment where my friend Diana and I got to spend a few minutes actually talking to FM and getting pictures and autographs.

 

No no, thank YOU.

 

I was shocked at how humble and classy the guys were. They all shook everyone’s hands (2-handed shakes, Asian style!) and sincerely thanked us for coming to support their new album release.

I meanwhile thanked them for putting Asian Americans on the mainstream map, and they were grateful for all the words of support that came from each fan that stopped by to congratulate them.

 

3 Fingers Up for FM...sorry to J-Splif (who's on the other side of the camera)

 

I really hope that this part of them doesn’t change as they continue to dominate the charts.

After the concert, they were surprised on stage by their record label, who congratulated them for officially just going platinum. I was so happy for them. They’ve come a long way, and they’ve worked really hard to get where they are today. They deserve it.

Okay, I think I’m done gushing now 🙂

Byeeeeeee~

Long time no update!

Sorrrrry

In my defense, I’ve been a busy, busy girl 🙂

First, there was the International Secret Agents concert in NYC. I took over 100 photos and videos of the young and talented Asian American artists that took the stage at Webster Hall (which can all be found HERE). My friends and I were lucky enough to get close the stage (standing-room only) and though I was star-struck, I felt completely at home with the artists I watched from the comfort of my laptop every night.

They really blew me away, and made me very very proud to be a young Asian American artist. Represent~

The amazing line-up included:

Wong Fu Productions (With my future husband Phil Wang, and a newly engaged Ted Fu!)

Far East Movement (Fly Like A G6)

Quest Crew (Truly worthy of the ABDC title)

KevJumba (Who is going to be on The Amazing Race with his Dad!)

NigaHiga (Who previewed his new full-length film…which looks HILARIOUS)

David Choi (Who made a super fan out of me with his flawless vocals)

David Garibaldi (And his jaw-dropping ability to create gigantic paintings in minutes)

And sooooo much more.

All in all, a memorable and highly entertaining night.

During their segment, FM rocked the house with something old…

And something new…

Later on, I went down to Orlando, Florida (for work of course…sadly…no Disney World), and the weather treated us very kindly (thank GOD). Work was good, and our client/host gave us the royal treatment…

…But now that I am back home in the coziness of my tiny but homey apartment, I can honestly say that there really is no place like home.

I got to clean (an actual hobby of mine) and do laundry…and I don’t know about you, but I LOVE wrapping myself in my comforter right after it comes out of the dryer!

 

Mini-Grace does, too.

 

I’ll be in Maryland for Labor Day weekend to hang with the fam…one last time before I leave for Shanghai/Seoul. And then I go to Haiti. Phew!

Hmmm…I suppose I’ll just have to enjoy being home while I can. Goodnight!
