My friend Geoff sent this over e-mail today. I know, sometimes Kanye isn’t everyone’s cup of tea; he’s more like an acquired taste for others. But for those who remember Kanye before he blew up as Mr. Kardashian, this fan-made video will remind you on why you were a fan to begin with. ‘Coz back then he was just a kid with strong vision and an intense desire to create. x

Covet: A Lovetuner

LoveTunerSo I’ve been giving these out like candy to all my girlfriends who I feel would get it- a Lovetuner. It’s actually not surprising to them once I explain what this is.

Because those who know me know that I have this whole metaphysical side that could jump into conversations about chakras, energy, & self-help, as fast as I could switch to Game of Thrones and hip-hop.

Listen x Reflect: Love Rain by Jill Scott + Nailing My Truth

Combining my Listen post into a Reflect Post because one thought led to another and another….

As I writer, I tire easily when I find myself writing in the same format over and over again. For example, a feature article or a self-help column feels like I’m just explaining things in a constricting, factual manner.

Some days I wish I could muster up the creative strength to just break the F*ck Free express and “Let the Words Flow.” I was listening to “Love Rain” by Jill Scott today and I thought, “Dayyyyym, I wish I could put words together like this.”

Photos: My Macau

Ruins of Saint Pauls

ChillinLast week, Amanda came to visit, and we took a short trip from HK to Macau to take some meetings. Well, she took the meetings, while I took a breather from the fast-paced current called HK Life. As I’ve never been to Macau before, the only impression I had of it was from the tales of those who have been- they keep saying, “It’s Just Like Vegas.”

While yes, the rise of casinos does remind you of the brightly lit strip, me- on the other hand being the forever wanderer and seeker- was still searching for pockets of what could make this city more than that. A tough challenge considering I was only there for a day.

Maybe my photos can tell a better story…

Read: Daring Greatly

Daring Greatly

Daring Greatly by BrenΓ© Brown is an interesting dive into the world of vulnerability. I have to admit I am still in the midst of reading this book, but I felt so moved by it that I knew I had to blog about it right away.

Because in a time when everyone wants to create an image of a cool, perfect instagram life with perfect outfits, perfect parties, and perfect desserts (Hey, I’m guilt of this as well!)- this book tears that idea apart and really asks you to peel off these layers and be yourself.

Be Vulnerable. Allow others to really see you…. and that’s some scary sh*t right there.
