I was able to make this wili lei for my girl Makalena at a workshop with the fabulous and award winning ;-p @leisbyleilani It is the first wili that I have made without my Mom helping. So, I put in some purple statice which is a fav of hers and some flowering purple basil seed stalks because we go local in Cali! #myapalife @picpacific @pbs

A good afternoon of films with some popcorn and Thai iced tea down at the #SAPFF2017 in the Guild theater. Learned about some amazing Asian revolutionaries such as Dorothy Toy and Tommy Kono who have impacted the world of dance and heavy weightlifting. Also, one film took the beauty of qipaos and showed how it can both empower and yet sexualize women. #APAHM #asianpacificamericanheritagemonth #myapalife

Side note: Still working through some final updates before I put in the big order to the printers! Stay tuned for more updates! 😄

After a nice break since hitting my Kickstarter goal, I'm ready to take on my 3rd project (1st being content creation and the 2nd being Kickstarter)...Project Fulfillment and processing orders! Fulfillment is defined by the achievement of something desired or promised, as in I had a sense of fulfillment when I successfully got this great selfie with my dog-nephew! (Swipe to see my other attempts. 😂)

Grateful for family this weekend. I'm exhausted and think I caught a cold in the process but every moment in the hot sun listening to ancient songs and remembering obachans, abuelas, and others no longer with us was special this year. I hope all who joined in the celebration had a blessed time. #MyAPALife

Last chance to get your copy of Wedding Planning Galore before my Kickstarter ends! ⏱
-
Great for boys and girls of all ages who all have that dream wedding! 👰🏻🤵🏻
-
My 2nd book, Wedding Planning Galore, tells the silly story of a bride’s plan for an elaborate wedding until the groom thinks otherwise. (The cover says, "We're engaged!") Having planned my own wedding and formerly obsessed to become a wedding planner, I'm fully aware how indulgent weddings can be. I wrote this book to share that while it's great to celebrate love, don't forget that it's the marriage and not the wedding that counts. The characters are somewhat autobiographical, but I try to be thoughtful to make this relatable to couples of all race, religions, genders, and cultures.

Last chance to get your copy of Siris the Rhino before my Kickstarter ends! ⏱
-
Great for people and friends of people wearing glasses, pediatric eye care professionals, and rhino lovers! 🤓
-
My 1st children's book, Siris the Rhino, is inspired by my journey growing up with bad eye vision. I started wearing glasses since 5. I had lasik last year of college. Most recently, I developed chronic uveitis and now glaucoma in my left eye, and I'm still wearing glasses. My book is about a green rhino who needs help seeing clearly. Siris (rhymes with "iris") meets a friendly kiwi bird who gladly helps Siris and the rest of his family see better. (Fact: Rhinos and kiwi birds can't see very well in real life.) It's a delightful story that appreciates eye care professionals and befriends anyone who needs a glasses-wearing friend.

"Like a real-life Pepper Zhang, Angel Halo Chang celebrates her eccentricity. As a child, she preferred playing with a large cardboard box instead of dolls, collected cartoon lunch tins to use as purses, brought jump rope to play double dutch during the last month before high school graduation..."

Flashback to my 1st half with Nike Women's in 2014! Friends recently asked me to join them in another run, but I decline and tell them this project has been like my marathon haha. With a week left to June and the end of my Kickstarter journey (...and to the 1st half of 2017!), it feels like mile 10 before the finish line. Hope I can pick up the pace and look forward to finishing strong! 🏃🏻‍♀️💨

#TBT to my storytelling days! In the summer of 2008, I joined @TeachForAmerica and seen here reading Rainbow Fish to the Rescue by Marcus Pfister during summer training. In the fall of 2015, I went back to the Pre-K classroom to volunteer and read What Pet Should I Get by Dr. Seuss. Just earlier this week, I read Siris the Rhino by yours truly in my 1st Kickstarter Live event!
