In honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) held a panel discussion moderated by actress Jodi Long (All American Girl) discussing what the new Asian America (and Canada) looks like.
Chris Tashima, Ellen Ho, James Hong, Sandra Oh, Ken Mok and Julia Kim participated in the panel and took turns answering and questioning each other on what it’s like being Asian American* and working in Hollywood.
It’s time for that annual rite of passage: prom season!
As a woman who’s attended my own high school proms not one, not two, but three times, I know a thing or two about having a good time at prom. Hence, a good ol’ to-do (and don’t) list to help you along on your big night.
This year’s Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival was bigger and better than ever before.
I know people use that phrase to advertise things all the time but in this circumstance, it was actually true!
I’ve attended this film fest for a couple of years in a row. Supporting my fellow Asian American artists and filmmakers, some whom I have the honor of calling friends now.
This year, I’m able to truly reflect how far we’ve come as Asian Americans working in the film and entertainment industry. And we’ve come far. Just take a look at these two AA institutions: Wong Fu Productions and Angry Asian Man.
Yay for community event successes! The Asian Professional Exchange (APEX) held their second charity mixer and fashion show to fundraise for the 17th Annual APEX Youth Olympics – a sporting event that brings together at-risk youth from inner cities to promote leadership through team-building exercises.
Over 500 professionals in the greater Los Angeles area came together to witness the work of trail blazing Asian American designers and entrepreneurs, Stella & Jamie, Line and Dot, Ai for Ai and Carol Chen Couture.
I know we’re celebrating moms this weekend but this commercial made me cry.
In the words of Michelle Woo: “Google + an Asian baby? Pretty much the two greatest inventions ever.”
In a collision of media worlds, a more in-depth version of Audrey Magazine’s Olivia Munn behind the scenes photo-shoot will be premiering on MYX this Thursday, 5/5! (What better way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, eh?)

Because Audrey Magazine is a small publication, we rely on the kindness of our many artsy friends and interns to contribute their talents to our team. And they’re so cool, they’re off creating other cool stuff when they’re not creating cool stuff for Audrey. Cool, huh? Here are where a few of our contributors are up to in their (limited) spare time.
I like my Thai food greasy, dirty and cheap. (But not my date.) That’s just how authentic Thai food should be. After all, in Thailand, platanas are served with a side of flies (not fries) and hot tom yum soup come in charred metal bowls. Greasy, dirty and cheap but totally mouth-wateringly delicious.
So when I was invited to try a classy little Thai eatery in the middle of the bustling Sunset Boulevard, I was hesitant. Is the food actually going to be… light? Clean? Costly?
Turns out Night + Market at Talesai is a happy medium.
Call it the spring mating season. Call it my biological clock ticking. But recently I’ve been seeing babies everywhere. And even though I’m totally biased and it’s probably totally not cool to say, you gotta admit that Asian babies are the cutest babies. Ever. It’s just a fact. Even Hollywood seems to think so. Here’s a look at some of the cutest famous Asian babies. (I’m not ranking them ’cause that would be really not cool.)
Brangelina Babies | Maddox Jolie-Pitt
The Brangelina clan has tons of cute babies, from Shiloh to Zahara to Pax. But the one nearest and dearest to my heart will always be the first-adopted: Cambodian American Maddox Jolie-Pitt.
