At its essence, The Romance of Magno Rubio is an ill-fated story we have all seen before: the hapless country yokel who is in love with the beautiful babe way out of his league. It differs slightly in that the play is set in 1930s California and revolves around the unrequited love problems of a Filipino migrant worker. However, what breaks this familiar tale from the traditional boy-meets-girl mold is the incorporation of non-traditional storytelling methods.
There’s something magical about a holiday movie done well.
We asked celebs at the Audrey Magazine & KoreAm Journal A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas screening what are some of their favorite seasonal flicks.
To find out who listed Die Hard and who named…Casablanca(?!) as one, check below! Continue Reading »
We love our Dia Frampton here at Audrey Magazine so when we heard that the singer was going to be appearing at our sister publication, KoreAm Journal‘s elite Unforgettable gala, we decided to invited her to pick out a dress from Sue Wong‘s LA showroom and chat about her new single, “The Broken Ones,” and her upcoming album, Red. (Okay, okay, we also chatted a bit about dresses)
Check out our interview below! Continue Reading »
I’ll admit that I’m not a Gleek; which I’ll attribute to the fact that I cannot sing. This makes it tough to get into shows which revolve around just that. That was until Harry. First of all, I’m interested in any Asian American that can make it onto Prime Time. But Harry, well, Harry is a pop and lock that I can flex my eyes to without having to sing a note.

My most memorable Thanksgiving took place two years ago, in a hospital, with a beautiful baby.
It was my first year out of college and my FUNemployment adventures led me to taking care of an adorable baby who taught me how short life is and how blessed I am.
Two years later, I look at my surroundings and I think about how even more blessed (if that’s possible) I am. I’m here working at Audrey Magazine, getting the opportunity to shape Asian American lifestyle and culture.
In the mere 1+ year I’ve been working here, I’ve gotten the opportunity to meet and converse with many public figures I’ve admired. Not naming names but Mindy Kaling, JustJared‘s Jared Eng, Lisa Ling, and Kal Penn among the many.
Like this picture below. For years I would obsessively listen to the voice of Dia Frampton from the indie pop-rock band Meg & Dia. I still have their CDs in my car. And look, here I am being all buddy buddy with her at her most recent KoreAm Journal cover shoot!

I cannot wait to get my Thanksgiving grub on this end of November.
While I relish in mashed potatoes soaked in gravy, with pan-crusted macaroni & cheese coming in at a close second, I couldn’t help but wonder what celebs like to eat during Turkey day? Check out their answers below!
Seems like mashed potatoes is a grand favorite! (Although John Cho and Phil Yu’s answers do leave me drooling a bit.)
I was first introduced to Thai Nguyen’s work eight months ago at his debut fashion show in March. Back then, he established himself as a designer who creates flowy light-weight dresses so I expected his Spring 2012 collection to be similar. On October 15th, I attended Thai Nguyen’s 2nd runway show for Concept LA Fashion Week and I was certainly surprised by his new collection.
You know a designer is established when you search for LA Fashion Week events and see that her name is singled out with her own private invite-only event and not jumbled into a series of other fashion shows. I’m talking about Sue Wong. Her work never ceases to amaze me – she really has an eye for great taste and elegance. I’m not really the type who goes for dresses with beading and ruffles but when they look so graceful like Sue Wong’s, I will definitely make an exception. She really goes on to perfect every little detail.
