Race With Me

Tuesday, February 24, 2015

On The Amazing Race, I'm racing for Mom who wanted to tell the world I was going to be on the show but managed to keep the secret for months. I'm racing for Dad who religiously watched TAR and called me every Saturday morning to share his tips and strategies. I'm racing for my brother who encouraged me to let go of my fears, seize the moment, and go on the race when I didn't think I could do it. I'm racing for my friends who texted and called when I was off the grid because they were worried about me. I'm racing for USC, my alma mater and my Trojan family as they continue to support and nurture my endeavors long after graduation. I'm racing for lawyers, to show the world we are more than meets the eye. I'm racing for fashion bloggers. Yes, we love talking about sparkly and pretty things. But we're also fierce and can snap into warrior mode and get down with the best of them. I'm racing for Shanghai, my birthplace and my first home. I'm racing for Asian Americans. And I'm racing for LA, my favorite city in the world. 

Above all, I'm racing for ordinary girls with extraordinary dreams.

My Amazing Race starts Wednesday Feb 25 at 9:30pm on CBS. 

Race with me!

Friday, February 20, 2015

After Wednesday night's gut wrenching sodium enriching Chinese New Year marathon dinner, I woke up yesterday looking like Jigglypuff. I have a naturally fuller face so it puffs up at the first sign of any aberration. To combat this, I have amassed an arsenal of products and techniques to slim the face and attack the face bloat from all fronts.
