I was star-struck meeting Michelle Yeoh! All I wanted to do was chat with her, but we had to pose instead. Such an odd profession!

Just watched #CrazyRichAsians last night and I am so filled with pride. Finally a movie that made me feel badass, funny, and sophisticated while staying true to Asian culture. Even if you aren't Asian, you will find yourself in these characters. SEE. THIS. MOVIE. SEE. THIS. MOVIE
