Official MV - It's Okay by Sad China

The early 2000s vibes continue... Did you used to sing karaoke with this yellow font? I remember my family put on these 2 CD's every Saturday morning when we lived across from Metrotown in the early 2000s. These CD's were literally from 1990 in China, I swear, just like crawling yellow font with Chinese music and nature scenes in the background. My music video drew inspiration from that, as well as my personal style and love of parks, ponds, and birds. I directed and wrote the story, participated in creative direction, styling, and edited it all at the public library ('cause your girl's laptop is a POS, a term I use endearingly, since it's actually been with me through some of the biggest parts of my life from 2015-now). Adewolf was my co-creative director, and headed cinematography.

If you're free Thursday, July 25th, and wanna eat some yummy Caribbean food, come down to Calabash Bistro (428 Carrall St) at 8pm and dance with us 'til midnight, for Adewolf's EP Release Party! Only $8 for a ticket, and Adewolf is playing afro-pop and R&B with a full live band, with backup singers. It's gonna be a good night.

S/O to my peer and talented friend Xtine for putting me on, and my producer Otaku for cooking the beat.

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.
