As Dr. Ken😷* says…

______’s my jam!

In my case, stuffed starches are.

What can I say? I am what I eat!

 
🎎Asian versions from Pho #1 :

Wong Fu Wednesday: Everything Before Us

In Community, Public Interest, Relationships, What's Hot, Wong Fu Wednesday on 06/03/2015 at 23:30

Today is THE DAY!

Wong Fu Productions officially has released its first full-fledged feature film, Everything Before Us!!!

Watch this world with DEI (Department of Emotional Integrity)

This cool crew of artistic Asian dudes (starting with Phil Wang, Wes Chan and Ted Fu) and babes have created a slew of shorts, skits and vlogs that millions of faithful viewers, including yours truly, have enjoyed ~ especially for me, the ones about exercise:

DISCLAIMER: These are bound to crack you up!

In everything before their movie, they’ve established emotional connections, especially comic relief, and even some serious stuff…

They’ve featured some of my fave music and on-screen peeps, including Jen from Head to Toe and even the guy who plays the dad (Randall Park) on Asian sitcom, Fresh Off the Boat, as well as have cast diverse ~ consisting off, but not exclusively Asian ~ actors, like the gentleman from a Super Bowl XLIX commercial. Therefore, some folks can give credit to Wong Fu for their big breaks!

Here Wong Fu addresses about their new flick’s FAQs:

I was happy to check out their live chat:

… And just stay in the loop as they gave us the scoop from the very beginning of making-the-movie:

Fresh Off the Boat = Fresh On Point!

Rey + A&A

Throwback: I sport my red adidas track suit while my †GODdaughter† & I pose w/my ♥Double ATeam♥ @ the ♪piano♫ 5y ago!

 As an Asian Gen-Y, I absolutely agree with the points addressed by the main character of this season’s new ABC sitcom, Fresh Off the Boat! I can totally relate to Eddie for the following reasons:

  • We both sport T-shirts with black heroes ~ to celebrate Black History Month, here are my share

Gotta ♥love♥ Moe’s salsa bar (counter-clockwise): * salsa roja caliente * tomatillo * chipotle ranch * cranberry lime for festive flavor!

The sky’s the limit for ✈️southwest🌄 mix at this Tex Mex eatery, from burritos to burrito bowls🍲!

Hashi Teppan Japanese Grill

Since Japanese is among the faves of Airman cousin who just deployed, I had to pick up take-out from Hashi for his farewell dinner! Wide variety of rice: steamed or fried white or brownGotta go for Gyoza!

Like Moe’s, you can pick your side starches🍜 (veggies and/or rice or noodles) and protein (red meat🍣, poultry🍗 or seafood🍤) with that Asian zing🎎 at Hashi!
