I always like to cook before I leave for vacation. Any leftovers, I’ll freeze and then when we’re back and exhausted, we can eat something delicious. @wholefoods had a sale on beef short rib so I improvised a marinade with ingredients I had in my pantry. Wish I had sesame oil but it was still 💯. Very loose recipe below: Soy sauce Honey Garlic (use a LOT) Garlic powder (reinforced the flavor) Sesame seeds A packet of hot ramen seasoning (I had it leftover from this nuclear instant noodle and it’s much milder when mixed into a marinade) Mix and let the sliced meat hang out for about an hour before throwing into the pan. So good! 😋
#fbf to 2017 and one of my favorite hikes ever. We did a quick four mile round trip on the Kalalau trail to Hanakapi`ai beach. The elevation changes can be challenging since it’s hot, sunny and humid but nothing was more fun than exploring the Nā Pali coast. Next time, if I ever get over my peeing in the woods phobia (I know, I know), we’ll do the 22 mile loop.
Outdoor climbing part 2: Psycho Wall. Yes, the name sounds ominous and I didn’t send a single route but always fun trying something beyond my comfort zone. 🧗🏻♀️
I know last year was #asianaugust but I think we should make it a thing again this year and what better way to kick if off than with @thecut’s cover star @watanabenaomi703? Link in bio for all the beautiful pics and a killer profile by work wife @kathleenhou.

Because it’s currently ⛈ thunder storming outside, three other people at work are wearing the exact same @teva sandals today. I fully support this trend!!!
I look like I’m enjoying summer here but really, WHEN WILL IT BE OVER?? Dreaming of snowy days. ❄️
Don’t worry I’m wearing all black today in penance for this picture. ❤️
Ok fine maybe I don’t hate summer thaaaat much.
Fun little shoot with @sarah_snook from a few weeks back. Looking forward to seeing more of her on the next season of Succession! Full story up on @vulture. 📷: @eriktanner, hair @helenreavey, makeup @nancyseasilermakeup, special thanks to @cassidyturner and @jodyquon, and styled by me. 🔥
Craving Japanese 7-11 egg salad sandwiches so I made some. 🍞🥚Although I really hate how pale and flavorless egg yolks are in the US!
I may or may not have coordinated my lewk to match @ghostface_kisser. 👻
Weirdly in my almost two years of working on #theyseemcool I’ve never shot an Asian guy. Thrilled that it’s changed and @sartorialgorilla is our latest COOL PERSON. 📷 @sheekswinsalways, 📝 @sarahjanespellings, hair @yasutakehair, grooming @miguellledo, produced by @lradel and styled by me. ✌🏼
Country sunsets are much nicer than city ones. Also only fitting to wear tie dye and Birkenstocks no?
After the torrential rain comes crushing humidity but also very good golden hour light. 🌅
Don’t take me on your helicopter tours unless you want to hear me heckling the pilot to do barrel rolls. 🚁 Needless to say between that and my half hearted attempt to climb around the Grand Canyon, everyone thinks I’m insane. 🙈
First outdoor climb ✅ I got eaten alive by mosquitos but I can’t wait to try it again. 🧗🏻♀️ More in stories!
Me normally vs me when I see a cute corgi. 😍😍😍 Also, I’m really into this lip from @lancomeofficial. It’s sheer, kind of jelly like and super flattering while still goth enough for my standards.
This @ceciliebahnsen required two people to properly cinch. I think I need to get some ladies in waiting. 😂
Every May I think a lot about the point of #apahm. How do you celebrate a month created around term that didn’t even exist until roughly fifty years ago? What does it all mean? And what is its legacy? Growing up I defined myself as Asian American simply because there weren’t that many of us, even though I’m from NYC and attended an elite high school. We self-segregated in broad terms because who else could understand and empathize with the strange cultural dynamics that comes with immigrant Asian parents? Explaining myself was emotional labor, even if I didn’t know that word existed. Which is to say that sometimes I want to be with someone who understands me. Someone who can play “spot the Asian” on TV, find comfort in ramen noodles, and doesn’t question why I have to bow for every damn holiday. And maybe that’s the point of this month, celebrating the fact that while we might all come from different countries across a gigantic continent, we somehow share an implicit understanding of one another’s struggles and quirks. And above all else we support the good that comes from our newfound community. Anyway this long winded caption is to also say that my t-shirt is by @phenomenal.ly. Buy one and it will benefit @NAPAWF, which is an incredible organization empowering AAPI women & girls. #phenomenallyasian #asianamerican #asianamericanheritagemonth #apa #api
Monkeying around. 🐵 Who knew 1st birthdays were that fun for adults?
It’s summer goth season. 🖤
If you haven’t checked out @juno.shen and her amazing neon sculptures inspired by mahjong tiles, do so now. 🀄️ Loved styling her for the latest #theyseemcool up on @thecut. 📷 @sheekswinsalways, 📝 @sarahjanespellings , hair @yasutakehair, makeup @marcelogutierrez, produced by @lradel and styled by me.

Weekend hike in the Berkshires and while it might look chilly, we definitely worked up a sweat. Also, yes I wore my college t-shirt. 🤷🏼♀️
Haven’t left my apartment since Tuesday because a killer cold and I’m feeling stir crazy while going through old photos. Needless to say I wish I was back in Tokyo eating 🍜 instead of being stuck in bed 😷
Spring forward is my least favorite day of the year. More snow days like this one, way back in January when I was in Hakuba, please! Or at least one more trip before it all melts. 🏂
