I demo'd a cover of Minnie Riperton's LOVING YOU....on a whim, cuz I felt like it....lol Getting ready to start recording my upcoming Hawaiian record, and gathering a wholebunch of material to bring to my producers. I love this song though, it's been afavorite of mine for a long time....
I truly believe it is important, borderline necessary for women to take care of themselves. That not only includes their basic hygiene, but also the girly things some might call "pampering." Me- I call it "necessary." Especially in Japan, women invest so much time into their looks. You'd think it's more in America, but trust me everyone...Tokyo wins it by far. No complaints here though, it gives a valid excuse to justify without guilt. I love luxury and I don't apologize for it. I work hard and I can aff...Read more
Lately, I've been in meetings after meetings. It's good to be busy- but sometimes a girl deserves some leisure time, right? Well, since my recording schedule for my next 2 songs are set, I realized it is my last week of free time....so why not take advantage of it? I went shopping and bought myself a cute hat at D&G at Takashimaya. I treat myself to way too many things... Read more

Sorry for the delay, but we finally got this together. On 8/1/08, I hosted a charity show in Minnesota for an Asian-American Charity called, "Project Inspired/Model Me Mary" for my dear friend, Mary Ly & the National Bone Marrow Program. Mary is a cancer survivor, and is one of the strongest women that I know today. She has endured so much at a young age, but her optimistic spirit and her faith in God pulled her through some of the most traumatic times of her life. I met Mary in LA when she was in my music video for "Un...Read more
