Minnesota Fashion Show

The Volk

I was invited to shoot a film at a fashion show a week ago.
The show was hosted by The Volk and it was amazing. I loved the story behind the designers design and not only where the clothing the models were wearing on the runway beautiful but this show raised $1,500 for Allina Mental Health’s Mercy Hospital through admission sales! Wow!

The video below took my assistant a good week to edit. It’s a bit different from other films we have edited. My assistant, Agnes, wanted to try something different and new this time. I hope you enjoy a highlight of the event.

It’s Been Awhile

It’s been awhile since I last blog. I feel that I need to share more of my lifestyle and the multiple business that I run. Many things have changed since I last blogged, which was way back in March.

I want to officially announce that I am done with nursing. The reason is, I want to focus more on the things in my life that I am truly passionate about. (And part of my blog will also emphasize on following your passion and what you love to do.) So, you’re probably guessing what sort of business am I running.

One of the business that I am most proud of that my siblings and I created from bottom up is Real Estate. Back in 2011, my siblings and I became real estate investors.  My part in this business is to deal with tenants, call-out maintenance to the property, and scout for new listings in the market.

Another business that I run is my sister’s art business, Venlaa. Venla is clay artist, illustrator, and designer. In this business, I deal with marketing, lookout and book her for events, and communicate with partners and clients.

Last but not least, my own business. This year, August, I have officially launched my own videography business. Many have asked me why and how did I start out in videography. It was back in 2015 when I went on road trip with my siblings to Montana. I was documenting our trip on the way there, where we went, and our trip back home. I got back home and I started editing. Got done editing and posted it onto Facebook and Youtube. Many people loved it and I loved it. Ever since then, I started filming my family and I any time we took a trip anywhere. Many people watched my video and it started blooming. They’ve asked me to film their weddings, birthdays, or special ceremonies and there I was contemplating. Can I wake up everyday and just grab my camera and film? Hell yes! But I have to say, this isn’t possible without the help of my sister, she is a talented and wonderful assistant who shares the same vision as I do, filming and editing wise. She does a wonderful job helping out when I’m stuck on a video and I don’t have a creative vision for the film.

I want to get back into sharing my life and views through blogging. My life isn’t the best, but I make the most out of it. All these business that my siblings and I run was all built from the bottom up. I want to inspire anyone out there to follow their dreams because it is possible if you put your mind to it and say to yourself “I can do it.”

What do I think about Florida...


I was invited to a bachelorette party and while I was there I extended my trip for a week.

If you have never been to Florida it is hot, humid, and sticky. Within 7 minutes, the ice in my iced peach tea from Starbucks had already melted. 😑

If you're in the Miami Beach district you're probably less than a block away from the ocean. Yes, I spent most of my time sitting by the ocean enjoying the waves crashing in, watching the sunrise, and watching the sunset.

It was too hot, I couldn't take the heat to go shopping. Besides eating. . . .

The water ... this was my first time at an ocean. It tasted disgusting. I tried so hard not to get it in my mouth, but it just somehow managed to get inside my mouth. Eeek. 😖 The water was warm. I was surprised. That was one of the best thing. The water stings your eyes! Yes, it hurts. Don't even try to rub it off because your whole arm is wet and full of the salt water! I tried not to go underwater and just leave my head out, like a fishing bobber.

What I loved about my time there was watching the sunset and sunrise. I set my tripod and camera up and took time lapses of the sunsets and sunrises. It was fascinating to watch how beautiful and fast time goes by. (That is my brother in the photo)


I loved the sunsets. It had beautiful shades that looked like cotton candy. 😋


The palm trees? I was disappointed. When you think about Florida you think about palm trees and coconuts, correct? You will not see big beautiful palm trees. They are short and stubby. Occasionally, you will spot beautiful tall palm trees like the image below.


I think I had too much expectations of Florida. I really expected more. I was bored most of the time. I was either in my hotel with the air conditioning on or I was sitting by the beach under an umbrella. I tried so hard not to let the hot humid weather get to me, but it seriously did. It was not a joke. While my brother and I was walking to the hotel my brother said to me, "you know, I think I can live here..." I just stood there and stared at him, are you kidding me. This is FUCKEN hot. 

I did go all the way to the Keys. It was beautiful. I loved how people just parked on the side of the rode and swam.

As we were driving to and from the Keys. There were parts of the drive where the sides of the roads were blocked off by fences due to alligators/crocodiles crossing. Sometimes we even spotted parts of the fences that was lifted or broken. You know what that means, it means there was a huge and strong crocodile that tried to cross the rode. 😱 We kept ourselves entertained with stories of how the crocodile might have crossed the rode and we also kept our eyes out to see fences that were broken. And yes, it was very entertaining.

I did vlog our time in Florida. Click on the link below if you want to watch our time in Florida. [insert here link of florida vlog]

Overall, I didn't enjoy Florida. Maybe it's because of the weather. I don't know, but there was something about it that I just didn't enjoy. Makes me wonder if Santa Monica or Venice Beach will give the same vibe. (Fingers crossed. I hope not.) Don't get my wrong, I've always dreamed of living by the ocean and visiting Florida and California. But so far, Florida has really disappointed me.

California is still on my list to travel. I hope that I will make it out there, soon!

Bimbim Naengmyeon

I love cooking. But what I love more is food that is cooked for me!A culture of food that I'm not very good at cooking is Korean. But that is such a great excuse, because when I crave for Korean food I go to my favorite Korean restuarant Mirror of Korea or I have my sisters cook it for me. And really, who doesn't love it when someone cooks their food for them? 😝

Below is a masterpiece of my sisters dish. Bimbim Naengmyeon.

New Hobby: Paddleboarding

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset Paddleboarding Cabela's

I enjoy my days at the lake. It’s a great time to relax, enjoy myself, and chill with my family. This summer I finally got the chance to try out something I had always wanted to do.


I was out on Lake Alice at William O’ Brien State Park, about 15 minutes north from Stillwater, MN.

The impression that was running through my head before I ever tried paddleboarding was, “is this board stable?”and “will it hold me?”

I was nervous.

You know that feeling, when you want to try it so bad but your’re so scared at the same time. That’s me.

But, surprisingly, it’s much easier than canoeing and kayaking. When you sit in a canoe or kayak, it is wobbly and you can’t shift your weight from side to side much, you’ll flip it. Paddleboarding was much more stable. I was amazed at how stable it was. I rocked the board from side to side and it would not flip. It’s trustworthy.

What I love about a paddleboard that a canoe or kayak cannot do is being able to stand on the board. I could see everything around me and in the water. I spotted a school of Carp from a distance and as I get closer, they vanish. It’s beautiful.

It’s almost Fall, that means Winter is right around the corner. I’m going to enjoy a couple more days out at the lake paddleboarding before Winter hits!
