Stretch Into Spring!

Stretch your body and mind by trying a new outdoor activity this weekend!
The weather’s getting warmer, it’s staying light outside later, and summer is just around the corner.
My favorite spot for a super challenging stair climb in Los Angeles is at Baldwin Hills in Culver City, CA.
The views from the top of the climb stretch from beyond downtown LA to the east and all the way west to the ocean.

    Congratulations to Ani’s Raw Food Certification Course, Level 1, Inaugural Class!

Congratulations to Ani’s Raw Food Certification Course, Level 1, Inaugural Class!

We kicked off Ani’s Raw Food Certification Course, Level 1 on March 15, 16, 17th, 2013 to a packed house! It was a weekend of raw food making and eating, eco-green living inspiration, and happiness all around. Experiencing visible transformations as people detox on raw food for 3 days is incredible! The room’s happiness index kept rising up as our days passed, and people glowed.

A Day in the Sun

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.

Ani’s St. Thomas Celebration

This year my family celebrated Mom's birthday in St Thomas, US Virgin Islands. the weather and water were beautiful, though fresh, raw, whole foods were hard to find

Moby at Monster Massive

Moby invited me to Monster Massive in downtown LA where he was spinning to over 40k ravers. It was awesome to see Moby rock the house, he really had the crowd going strong.

At the Veggie Grill with Kevin and Joe

I met up with the the publisher of VegNews Magazine, Joe Connelly, and the owner of Veggie Grill, Kevin Boyland, in West Hollywood for dinner last night.

Hiking LA in the Canyons in the Sun

After a night of rain, it's sunny and clear today in Los Angeles. The perfect day for outdoor play. To avoid using my Prius, Kanga and I ran a few miles to the canyon, hiked up what feels like an 80 degree cliff face, then ran down and back home. You can see the ocean in the right side of the photo above.

Mom Tri’s Villa Royale Paradise

Mom Tri, owner of the resort, totally gets it. His spa uses edible coconut oil, he has an organic farm in Chang Mai with a cooking school, and looks super fit and healthy.

This is one of 3 pools at Mom Tri’s, and salt water too.

Each morning I’d find a newly bloomed lotus flower. They’re beautiful!

This is just one of several decks overlooking the ocean for dining and drinking. What a view!

This is the beach at Mom Tri’s….turquoise water and white sands. I did get a minor jelly fish sting. I was with a doctor, luckily, who kept me calm, and though it left welts on my arm, it was really not a big deal. I tried to swim a mile a day in the ocean. It was bath water warm and such a treat.

Flight Time

One way I like to entertain myself is with my camera, especially during long international flights.

The sunrise during my very long flight back to the USA from Tokyo was beautiful. Most people were sleeping and missed this amazing view.

I don’t sleep well on planes, and you’ll usually find me doing wall push-ups and stretching in the open area by the staff. Maybe that’s why one flight attendant remembered me from my flight to Asia 6 weeks prior.

Touring Around Bali, Indonesia

We did the tourist route and visited Kintamani Volcano. We were lucky to enjoy this beautiful view because it rained a couple hours later and was socked in with fog.

Next, we drove to the bottom of Mt. Batur to hike up the volcano. As soon as we started our hike, it began dumping rain. And I mean torrential downpour! It was no use trying to stay dry, so we chose to keep climbing. Huge blessing that the rain stopped and the sky cleared as we approached the top so we could take in the views. And once we got back down to the bottom, we went and soaked in a mineral hot spring to warm up.

I had to put a photo of the back of our jeep in here. Our rain soaked clothes are hung up to dry, and we’re stocked up with 2 huge Montong durians. Our jeep smelled of durian from the outside. Good thing Carol and our driver both love durian as much as I do.

Check out this pretty bug. Does anyone know what type of insect this is?
