Thanksgiving Hunt in NYC

Happy Week of Thanksgiving everyone!!! There's always something about Thanksgiving to me that screams "New York" and it's not because of the Macy's Day Parade. It's actually because I spent my first Thanksgiving in New York. ...more

The Family that Vlogs Together...

This past weekend, I flew down to Tampa to visit my siblings! We took a road trip from Tampa to Florida, stopping for breakfast and lunch in Sarasota and Fort Lauderdale. It was a great way to escape the declining temperature of New York. They definitely don't call it the Sunshine State for nothing. The temperature there was in the mid-80s! Jealous, my Tri-State area brethren?...more

Cross Post - Intro & Tips to First Timers at New York Comic Con

This past weekend was when New York Comic Con came to town.  I've always wanted to go but feel intimidated by the idea of it.

Minors and Mosh Pits

I recently went to a Green Day concert (read my experience here). It was a Sunday night starting at 8pm and it was in Brooklyn. Now, I am not a punk rocker, rocker, or even a punk. I am just someone who enjoys Green Day songs like Basket Case and Wake Me Up when September Ends. With that being said, I was a little surprised at the amount of teens, tweens, and just plain kids were in the audience!...more

Karaoke 101 (aka Big D and the Broken Lizard)

I must admit, I'm not used to doing karaoke with a bunch of people who I did not grow up with (aka non-Taiwanese people). Thus, it was a bit of a shell shock when I realized the group I was with didn't all collectively know the two rules of Fight Club karaoke:...more

6 Signs that I'm Not Ready for Marriage (First 3)

Inspired by this blog post from HelloGiggles, I've decided to list out my own personal reasons of why I'm not ready to get married. No, this is not a hidden agenda to hint at OG or friends. This is sort of a cathartic way to talk myself off of the ledge of Quarter Life Crisis - instead of thinking "I'm already 25 years old and turning 26", my mind set should be "I'm only 25 and turning 26". So here goes... My 6 Signs that I'm Not Ready for Marriage...more
