Entertainment publication The Hollywood Reporter presented their first ever International Artist of the Year award to Chinese actress Fan Bingbing. An event was hosted by The Hollywood Reporter, Jimmy Choo and Mouton Cadet at the Grand Hyatt Cannes Hotel Martinez to present the global icon with the award.

Diary from Cannes 2013: Day 1 (May 16, 2013) It's my first time at the Cannes Film Festival, attending as a writer/editor on behalf of Asia Pacific Arts and Audrey Magazine. I've been told to expect a crazy circus -- as there are hundreds of screenings for both the official Film Festival and the simultaneous Film Market -- and I can't wait. The day before, Baz Luhrman, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Amitabh Bachchan walked the red carpet for the Opening Night film, The Great Gatsby. Also in attendance was the superstar jury, headed this year by Steven Spielberg, which include Ang Lee, Nicole...
Picking up at nearly 3 million views, this video from Los Angeles based chiropractor Ryan Lee has gone viral over the past couple of days on the internet. While we're sure Ryan was very intentional on marketing the services of his clinic, we can't help but wonder if he bothered to show anyone else this video before allowing it to go live on the YouTube. In fact, he appears just tad bit creepy and this video might even turn away customers. But then again, he is receiving a lot of public attention (although we're sure he wasn't expecting this kind). Check out the video below!

Olivia Speranza co-hosts the new show MYX-Rated, a new segment of MYX Channel, with Joey Guila. The show features a variety of topics from pop culture to consumer electronics. The show is meant to be well-rounded, but in a way that is relevant to Asian Americans. It was literally tailored for Olivia who has always been into art, music and writing, but never settled for anything in particular — the host of Japanese and Italian descent liked it all and this show gives her the creative freedom to cover everything. Her producer is 100 percent open to whatever she brings to the table, she says.
It’s incredible to look back on the past couple of years and see how much the cupcake has really infiltrated our lives.
The cupcakes shop Sprinkles is everywhere. Cupcake birthday cakes. Cupcake wedding cakes. Cupcakes on a lonely Friday night. Cupcakes after a full day of shopping. Cupcakes on a rainy day.
But take this for a spin: imagine getting a scrumptious box of cupcakes delivered to your door by a princess.
“I don’t strive for more in a way that makes me feel bad. I strive for more in a way that keeps me excited and having fun.” — Randall Park

In recent years, Randall Park’s mug has been all over the place. On TV, he’s either awkward-ing it up in KY lubricant commercials, or on House as a patient undergoing a lobotomy. He’s raking in laughs as the lovelorn Carlton in the indie film The People I’ve Slept With and as the silent Henderson in Dinner with Schmucks. He’s gone viral online in quirky short films, often ones he’s written and produced. The 36- year-old Korean American talent is used to wearing a lot of hats. Continue Reading »
When one hears “Japanese cocktails,” one probably imagines a super-sweet, super-weak sake drink. Who knew Japan is considered one of the “big five” whisky producing countries, along with Ireland, Scotland, Canada and the U.S. And with whisky cocktails all the rage right now, it’s a good time to expand your bar menu repertoire beyond fruity, frou frou drinks.

I’m a super lazy hair person. I mean, I can spend hours on skin care and makeup, but hair? I wanna just wash and go. It helps that my hair is generally healthy and frizz-free, and that a ponytail or high bun is my look du jour.
But I will say, my perspective has changed a bit after I got a blow-out at Nelson Chan’s salon a couple months back. My hair looked like it belonged in a Pantene commercial and I’m seriously reconsidering the whole wash and go look.
In this day and age, we sometimes take for granted the very rights that our predecessors have fought for, rights that allow us to live our lives as we do now. It has been a little more than 40 years since the United States Supreme Court legalized interracial marriage in the Loving vs. Virginia case in 1967. Until then, in some states, marriage (or sex) between any white and non-white person was considered a crime.
Can you imagine, marriage or sex as a crime?

It’s the last day of May, officially recognized as Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, but that doesn’t mean we have to stop campaigning for awareness of hepatitis B testing, a disease that afflicts one in 10 Asian Americans (versus one in 1,000 in the general population). Hepatitis B is the leading cause of liver cancer, and one of the greatest health risks for the Asian Pacific American community. And in honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, Nordstrom teamed up with Hep B Free and OCA in their “Living Well” campaign to help raise awareness of the importance of getting tested for hepatitis B.
As many people know, I cry. Easily. It’s not something I am proud of as it often makes me feel like a big, walking, wet-faced lady-cliché. But I can’t help it.
I was proud, however, to have gotten through our entire wedding planning without one bride-gene fueled trip down crazy lane. There were no hysterics, no bridezilla rearing her ugly tiara-adorned head. Nothing of the sort.
Well, almost nothing.
