A portion of a Sam Flores mural. He’s everywhere in SF Last weekend, I flew myself to San Francisco for leisure. The last time I was in the Bay was a few years ago and I told myself I would visit again soon. I decided a few months ago that this year I had to make […]

hi readers. sorry i’ve been away for so long. last time, i promised to post coachella pictures, which didn’t happen. then my cannes, france trip happened in may (film fest) and i planned on posting pics from that trip as well, which never saw the light of your monitor screen. it all just started piling […]

Sorry for the late weekend recap post. I’m not sure yet if I’d like to maintain a weekly “wkend recap” series but I suppose should my life remain eventful, I’ll continue as time permits. With an aim to post less words and more photos, I’ll briefly recap that this weekend was filled with lots of […]

This past weekend was very relaxing and I was able to be more active in the kitchen, which was documented in photos.  I ran, cooked, ate, enjoyed art, took car for regular maintenance, shopped, walked the busy streets of Old Town Pasadena in blazing Los Angeles weather and stuffed my face. What a way to […]

Yes, this is legit. No, this is not spam. One of my biggest fears is going through labor but after watching this video, I am less scared and even willing to consider the thought of it actually happening. I’ve heard more bad/mixed stories than good in my lifetime. I think many of my female friends would […]

3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage… all to turn 3 ambitious linear concepts based on movement, learning and food ….into 3 beautiful and hopefully compelling short films….. = a trip of a lifetime. Rick Mereki : Director, producer, additional […]

We’ve made many excuses NOT to go, faked “extreme hardships,” pretended not to speak or understand Engrish, intentionally (and maybe untruthfully) expressed hatred for people not of the same ethnic background, dogs, midgets (little people) and the abominable snowman and on the rare occasion, threw a tantrum in the courthouse before getting swiftly excused. Just when you thought you were off the radar, avoided the mundane waiting game that is the assembly room, the government comes back in your life like an STD to summon you to for the most patriotic, American duty you can ever partake in as a citizen – jury mothereffin’ duty.

Please forgive me for the year and some change absence.  Shortly after returning to the blogging world, I realized that it required a lot of commitment.  I thought too much into it — giving it weekly features, thinking of creative posts to entice more viewers, cool titles — and it eventually overwhelmed me to where […]

I try not to store all of my household belongings in the purse/bag that I am about to carry but it’s difficult to stray away from the “what if” questions that plague my mind upon stepping foot outside of the crib. What if I get stranded somewhere and need to make a fire for warmth or burn evidence to a crime I did not commit [insert side eye]? What if I see someone walking up to me whom I don’t want to talk to? What if my cell phone runs out of battery during a booty call? What if I’m on a boat and all of a sudden there’s a leak? What if the person next to me has dragon breath? The dilemmas of every day life lurks upon us and we must be prepared to take on the challenge(s).

It’s finally here… my long awaited blog.

It took me a while to think of a name for this space and even longer for my first post. I realized that things did not need to be complicated but rather simple like playing “boys chase girls” in elementary school. Just pick a target and run with it. ¢hung ¢hange, as noted in my ABOUT section, stands for my views on various adventures and ideas that is thrown my way aka my “two cents” on shit that intrigues me.
