P1L0T 53A50N 2.0

Hey, pssst, what are y'all doing over here still -- did you know I have a website now? Yup, it's me, your professional gal.

Furthermore, I released a dreampop/R&B bop in November 2018.


I'm currently producing the pilot to my web series Open Ethnicity (official Instagram).

And, if you clicked the first link in this post, you would've noticed that #OceanGirlMV has been released! And available for viewing!


I'm excited to write my friend's short film too. Only recently have I come to realize that writing and singing were my first two passions. And when I moved to Canada, I wasn't given the opportunity to sing as much as write, because, I guess, white people think Asian girls are naturally inclined towards academics, not creative hobbies. I remember how confused my teachers were when I got a B- on my Science tests in Grade 6, because I wrote the BEST short story they've ever read earlier in the term. I also didn't understand how fractions worked until like half a year later than everyone in my 2nd grade class. And in Grade 7, the school made me take some weird test to see if I was a genius 'cause I was writing some bomb stories in my class journal, on the "choose-your-own-topic" days. Jokes on them, I'm just a good writer. I'm not a prodigy or anything. But I am very well-rounded, and a queen of all trades. Duh.

TTYL, my saddies!

Pilot Season

It's been a while, my friends.

I haven't written an entry in my personal journal for a long time and, tonight, after discovering that I've been blowing tons of money on mascara for the past couple of years and have accumulated over 4 different tubes of it in random tote bags I haven't used, and needing a place to vent, I thought to myself: hey, why don't I just type into the ol' trusty blog? It's way easier than writing with a pen and doesn't make my right hand cramp up as fast.

So, yeah, basically, the point I'm trying to make is I HAVE TOO MUCH MASCARA AND WHAT DO I DO WITH IT ALL? They don't even work. I literally just spent 30000 PC Optimum points on a Benefit They're Real Mascara at Shopper's Drug Mart two weeks ago, thinking I could splurge on a high-end beauty product because I've just been using a Bad Gal Mascara I found on the ground at an afterhours for the past year. Unbeknownst to myself, I had two (2) unused tubes of mascara hidden away in tote bags I haven't opened, because I've been living the backpack life (aka using the same backpack every day for efficiency and functionality).

So, now that my rant's over, enjoy the videos below:

This is a DIY music video comprised of the footage from my live performance at Objets d' Arc (October 2016).


Live at Displace Hashery, reading my original works to represent Contrast Collective for Prism Mag's "Liminal" issue launch.


My most recent demo reel.

So there you have it, folks! It's been a crazy busy pilot season filled with auditions, thanks to my lovely agent Claire at Trisko Talent. My life is full of amazing, hardworking women who inspire me to be and do more. I'm really thankful.

Stay tuned, aka I'll be back to rant. I promise.

Writer's Block (2017) Webseries

In 2016, I was honoured with donning the role of D-Saq in Vancouver webseries Writer's Block, written and directed by Steeven K. Sampassa. Before you watch my debut as this badass bitch, I want to answer this question for you:

Who is D-Saq?


D-Saq doesn't take any shit from anyone.

She is THE art prodigy the world doesn't know it needs.

She has impeccable style.

She doesn't have any friends, only fans. Except Markus, who may or may not be her only friend.

Heck, she doesn't even have any peers; she is above it all.

Okay, now watch episode 3 of #WritersBlock2017 below.

Music Video + Girls Vs. The City

It's so exciting to announce that the "Ocean Girl" music video is 70% shot! The last day of shooting will be October 27th, and I'll need tons of extras 'cause it's a party scene on the rooftop of a very generous friend's. The location is at Main Street and 7th Avenue, Vancouver, so if you wanna come, more info will be posted soon on my Facebook page.

Furthermore, I cannot believe we raised $486 on Indiegogo to fund the making of the music video. The people who donated to paying and feeding my team of women of colour artists are literal angels, or just really awesome people. The money also went towards equipment rentals, which are totally necessary and unnecessarily expensive. The $486 certainly doesn't cover all the production costs, but it definitely lessens the hole in my bank account, so thank you so much. I am very moved by the generosity and support I've received recently as a woman of colour in Vancouver's music scene.

Lastly, the webseries I was cast in as a recurring guest star has started releasing their episodes! This show is very funny, very well-written, and created by two very talented females, Brynn Peebles and Brianna Wiens (or AKA Girl on Girl Humor). You can view the pilot and 2nd episode below (catch me in the 2nd):

Ocean Girl


I wanted to share a selection of photos from my shoot with Marshall Heritage, taken at sunset this Monday. For the full set, click here to explore his website/portfolio.

There are exciting news to share, but I can't share them just yet. Ugh, I know, shut up, Sunny. Thank you for following the weird chaos that is my life.
