It’s Beginning to Look…

acting - holidays

…a lot…
IMG_1853…like Christmas!  We got another live tree this year…

…but a new topper. ( Actually, I’ve had this Eeyore since the 80’s.)


Been feeling the spirit everywhere – not just in the usual malls/drug stores – but driving around and wandering into random places…


…this isn’t just any building, of course.  It’s the legendary Bradbury.  Abe and I obviously had to take a photo of this – Charlie (kinda) married us!

Oh, by the way, my husband and dog are famous now.  They did an online Purina Commercial.


Speaking of ads, one I did a while back is now up too.  Not sure if it’s begun airing yet, let me know if you see it on your TV…

…I’m at the end.  Don’t blink!  My poor (TV) husband apparently got edited out, but the little superstar who plays my son (seen here eating yogurt) is Ian Chen.


I want his career.


Unforgettable Gala 2014

acting - fashion

My 3rd year attending KoreAm and Audrey Magazine’s Unforgettable Gala, but my first time presenting…IMG_1910Steven Lam snapped the photo of me and Rob Fukuzaki presenting an award to the fabulous Ming-Na WenMelanie captured the one below.


She also got a couple on the red blue carpet (there are a few less awkward ones on my Facebook Acting Page).


Best date!  Second to Abe, of course.

My go-to team helped me get ready – Michelle Hebert lent me a dress, Rene did my hair, and I got my makeup done at Sephora.


The menu had changed this year – I was really disappointed there wasn’t any prime rib from Lawry’s.


Always protect the dress.

Turns out Sandra Oh reads my blogs!  Of course I had to get her on the podcast to dish about food and body image.
