With several tasks going on at once, I feel the need to pause today from my usual Saturday blog post. No worries though, for I shall aim to have one up next week. In the mean time, here is what you missed: Continue reading
The Hawaiian-Dubbed MOANA Premiered for World Oceans Day – For YOMYOMF, I briefly highlight the world premiere of the first Disney film to be dubbed in Hawaiian.
This is something I’ve noticed in recent time. With the stories and short plays that I have written within the past year or so, I’ve noticed how some of the subject matter I’ve been exploring is the same that I have touched on before in previous works. I’m not saying I’m retelling a story I’ve told before, but rather, I’m revisiting the same themes and topics. Continue reading
Hapa Reads – For the fourth issue of Hapa Mag, I guest contribute one of many books that the staff and other guests are reading.
Hapa Fitness – For the fourth issue of Hapa Mag, I guest contribute how I stay fit, among the staff and other guests.
Hapa Travels – For the fourth issue of Hapa Mag, I guest contribute one of many favorite locations that the staff and other guests have traveled to.
The title alone speaks for itself as to what this post is about, and to be quite frank, this has not been an easy decision for me to make.
Since my update about my third novel from back in January, I unfortunately still haven’t made a lot of progress with writing it. My most recent update on it is that I’ve managed to hammer out a fairly long chapter in it – and by recent, I mean that this was a little over a month ago. Continue reading
#TBT: Elizabeth Sung in MEET THE KAYAK – For YOMYOMF, I pay tribute to the late actress by spotlighting a Wong Fu comedy sketch she appeared in a few years ago.
I found out through the most recent episode of the KollabCast podcast that while Millennials are blamed for supposedly “ruining” every other industry, an industry that my generation has helped grow in these trying times is the library industry. After doing a quick search on the subject matter, reports made within the past year confirm this reality. Continue reading
From Homemade Beginnings to a Vengeful Return: 15 Years of LUMPIA – For YOMYOMF, I interview director Patricio Ginelsa Jr. on the making of his debut film, and how that same spirit continues on in its upcoming sequel.
Director Alex Bocchieri on Commemorating the 442nd Infantry Regiment in New Feature Film – For YOMYOMF, I interview the director of “Go For Broke: An Origin Story” on how he got involved in this project, making the transition from directing documentaries to a narrative, and how the state and community of Hawaii helped make this film happen.
YOMYOMF Blockbuster Showdown: SOLO, A STAR WARS STORY – The Offenders and I discuss our thoughts on the second “Star Wars” standalone film. SPOILER ALERT for those who have not seen it yet.
Normally it’s tradition for me to kick off May with a post in regards to Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. But due to circumstances beyond my control and a two-week film festival occupying a good chunk of my time this month, I find myself in a position where I’m instead writing today’s post as we wrap up Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.
It’s been about a month since the first trailer for it dropped, and we are now less than three months away from the film coming out too. After several people have expressed their opinons on it, today I want to talk about my thoughts about the upcoming film, “Crazy Rich Asians.” Continue reading
This past week has been even busier than the week before, having me swamped this way and that. So once again, I had to put another pause on my weekly Saturday blog post. But things should be back to normal by this time next week, and so therefore, I look forward to returning to the usual routine of things on this blog then.
