on new year's day, i got to help with the float for the Rose Parade, which was on Jan 2nd this year. Donate Life is an amazing organization that raises awareness so we stick that pink dot onto our driver's license to help save lives.
NetKal Gala full of incredible people from the entertainment industry. This was the beautiful view of the rose gardens as we arrived at the Gala. Styled by my favorite eco fashion designer Linda Loudermilk. Event held at USC Annenberg Center.
6th annual NetKal Gala at USC was last night, and was attended by over 500 Koreans and Korean Americans in the entertainment industry including Lisa Ling, Ken Mok, Jane Cha, James Kyson-Lee, and Roy Choi.
DJs Galen and Solar from the Sunset Crew in SF came to LA to host a dance party in the park in Van Nuys on Saturday + an After Party downtown LA that went to 7am!
I'm a monkey (Chinese year of the Monkey), so was drawn to the rings. It looked hard, but it really doesn't take strength, but rather, finesse. You just need to build momentum, and have calloused hands would help too.
Chocolate covered collard green leaves inspired by my Cheddar Kale Chip recipe I discovered back in Portland, OR, in 1995 or so. Another delicious way to eat greens!
Kanga, my dog, rescued me 9-years ago on Labor Day Weekend in Portland, OR. To celebrate, we went to Huntington Dog Beach on the final hot day of summer!
On tour for "Ani's Raw Food Asia" in Los Angeles, CA at Erewhon Natural Food Store. It was a packed house. I demoed my Mushroom Bul Go Gi recipe in a Lettuce Wrap topped with a Gochugang Sauce. My raw food and vegan version of the traditional Korean dish.
My day in Seattle, WA began with host Margaret Larson at King 5 TV's NewDay Northwest Show, where everyone in the studio audience received "Ani's Raw Food Asia". From there we went to Evergreen Radio, Thrive Cafe, Komo Newsradio, and then the Woodmark Hotel and Yacht Club for Happy Hour and a Half.
