Hi from the big Apple!

Back in NYC filling in for Early TODAY and MSNBC’s First Look. It’s great reuniting with some of the best in the business. I mean seriously– where do you find people this happy so early in the morning? They must love what they do.#blessed

 

AAJA 2013

It’s the time of year I look forward to always– AAJA or the Asian American Journalist Association conference. This year it was in the Big Apple. A quick train up to the city and I was reunited with some of my great friends in the industry! I also had the chance to attend some very informative panels. It’s a great place to network and learn new ways to make your work better.

On the set of SMASH

Talk about a tough assignment! I spent the day in Brooklyn on the set of the hit show SMASH. I joined my new reporter friends Rob Johnston (WPXI) Rachel McNeill (KPRC) and NBC Senior Producer Derek Metoyer for a cool look behind-the-scenes of Season 2. With the second season set to premiere in January we have a glamourous gag order on all the new stuff we found out. But stay tuned and be sure to follow SMASH on twitter @NBCSmash and join their Facebook page to keep up with the latest news. What I can tell you is things are gonna heat up and the competition is gonna get beautifully complicated!

We remember

Thinking of all the victims, their families, their friends, their children on this 10th Anniversary of 9/11.  I don’t normally let my baby watch TV. But that’s not the case today.

SaraBeth’s, Magnolia.. must stop eating

What a Sunday in NYC. We started with navigating our way through the annual Puerto Rican Parade. We finally found entrance to the famous Sarabeth’s in Central Park where we wanted to brunch. Sarabeth’s can be argued the best brunch in the city and we were not disappointed. A must order– a basket of her signature muffins and preserves. As if that wasn’t enough.. we decided to eat cupcakes at Rockefeller Center. Where from? Magnolia of course. Later that evening I stopped by CBS studios on W. 57th to visit Russ Mitchell before he did the evening news. All in all a great day in the city.

Wedding dress shopping

We were SO excited to go with our bride-to-be Heather Brown wedding gown shopping!  She found one she really liked and we did too. Picture? Of course we’re not gonna show you. All I can say is that she looked beautiful. While at the boutique some really pretty sashes caught our eyes. I also found a great look for any future M.O.B. Following some gown gazing… a revisit to our good ole’ days together down South. The BBQ Fest was going on at Madison Square Park.. and despite the rain the scene wasn’t anything less than porkfection.

 

From Russia… with POP!

Pop artist SASHA stuns a crowd of more than 1,000 at A-list celebrity photographer Mike Ruiz’s birthday celebration! I’ve been a big fan of the artist since a mutual friend introduced us in February.

Not only is she talented and beautiful– she has a great heart and is so down to Earth.
