I pause today from my regular blog post. It’s been a busy few days, and starting next week, things are about to get even busier.
I would, however, like to you remind you all that “Stories High XVIII” begins its run next Thursday at Bindlestiff Studio. If you are interested in going, you can buy your tickets here.
In addition, I will be appearing at the Local Authors Book Fair two weeks from today at the Mountain View Public Library. It’s a free event, and so if you are in the area, I hope you come out to that as well.
And with that, here is what you missed: Continue reading
Understanding the Asian American Divide – I am one of several interviewees quoted in this new article from April Magazine writer J. Maraan regarding the outlook and representation of Southeast Asians.
Auli’i Cravalho Sings Out Encouragement in “Live Your Story” -For YOMYOMF, I shed light on a new song by the beloved “Moana” voice actor.
While a post like this would be more so expected on any other day, it’s otherwise atypical for me to make announcements like this on a Saturday. But given the magnitude of what I’m about to reveal, I feel that these two announcements deserve the spotlight of my regular Saturday blog post.
So August is actually going to be quite a month for me as both an author and a playwright. To be able to be present in different events where I get to embrace these identities of mine in the same month really uplifts me, even amidst the struggles I’ve been experiencing as a writer recently. At this time, I’m going to go ahead and break down just what you can anticipate from me this month: Continue reading
First-Time Reactions to ENTER THE DRAGON – For YOMYOMF, I share my reactions to my first time ever watching “Enter the Dragon,” in honor of its 45th anniversary.
Kelly Marie Tran is Returning for STAR WARS EPISODE IX – For YOMYOMF, I help bring to light that a certain actor, whose future with the franchise has been unknown, is finally confirmed to be coming back.
It’s been a few months since I’ve had any material to recommend to you, and so today appears to be a wise day to get back to doing that. What makes today’s recommendation unique is apart from it coming in two folds, it’s also material from a different author. Continue reading
Jonny Sun Is Illustrating Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Upcoming Book – For YOMYOMF, I share the news regarding how the creative mind behind Everyone’s A Aliebn When Ur A Aliebn Too is collaborating with the creative mind who brought us “Hamilton.”
Last week, the New York Daily News released an article on how Kylie Jenner is on track to becoming the youngest “self-made” billionaire (and I put “self-made” in quotations, for a find it laughable to assign such a description to someone who comes from one of the wealthiest families in America). What’s important about the article itself is nothing. What I do want to focus on is the corresponding tweet for it. The tweet gives a one-sentence summary of what the article is about, before posing a question: “What are you doing with your life?” Continue reading
YOMYOMF Blockbuster Showdown: ANT-MAN AND THE WASP – The Offenders and I gather together to discuss our thoughts on the latest film from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Where’s Rose? – For YOMYOMF, I question the lack of announcement regarding whether or not Kelly Marie Tran will be reprising her breakout role of Rose Tico in the upcoming “Star Wars” film.
If I thought the stretch of time between 2014 and last year was prominent, imagine what I’m feeling now. Tomorrow will mark four years since the release of A Moment’s Worth; my debut novel that focused on three core subjects throughout the storylines: the interconnections among the human race, the fine line between what is real and what could be a dream, and the value of moments in time.
