Seattle, WA, May 23, 2008 — The Wing Luke Asian Museum opens its new permanent home at 719 South King Street in Seattle's Chinatown/International District after rehabilitating the historic East Kong Yick Building and transforming a community with its successful $23.2 million capital campaign. From its 60,000-square-foot building, the Wing Luke Asian Museum expands its role as an economic and community resource for a distinctly diverse neighborhood, as one of Seattle's historic and creative treasures, and as a cultural institution of national significance.
The Museum kicks off with a grand opening weekend celebration on May 31-June 1, beginning with a ribbon cutting ceremony and multicultural drumming performance at 10 a.m. on Saturday. The family-friendly event also features free museum admission, hiphop performance and workshops, children's activities, giveaways, and lion and dragon dances at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday.
Join Seattle Picks and the Hotel Monaco for a Sex and The City party to celebrate the most anticipated (at least by us) movie of the year.

Mr. Big and Stanford lookalikes are welcome too!

yikes, no wonder nobody goes out on a sunday. it's okay though - nothing can bring down our fun day kayaking on montlake! that is a great way to spend a sunny day, enjoying beautiful water and scene while getting an awesome arm & back workout! definitely something we'll be doing more often :)
hope you've all been having a great memorial day weekend!
you say eat and jake and i are pretty much there LOL - but we went to give the presets a chance not knowing what we were getting into. and i'm so glad we did, because the presets are the shiz!
i am pretty much into anything and everything music, but i'm picky b/c i like stuff that hits hard. the more bass, the more percussion, the more sexy - the better. the presets make just good music you can dance to. and i like that!
and now off to continue playing in the sun! fuck weather reports!
p.s. TEAM PENN & TEAM SALAVERRY! UFC 84 tonight!

my first mentor in business was my boss during my internship at DSA. he taught me so much about so many different things in business. to this day, i tell my interns about my favorite piece of advice he gave me.
"when you're ever in doubt, act as if"
i've been in countless situations - interviews, leading committee meetings, speaking in front of the audience at my events, negotiating, brainstorming sessions - scared out of my mind that i didn't know what i was doing. that single, simple piece of advice helped me project the confidence i needed to win over the trust of whoever i needed to. just because i didn't have the experience didn't mean i couldn't do it!
of course, my closest mentors are always my family, from my mom, grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings, cousins to my amazing boyfriend. i learn worlds from them every day of my life, and they look to me for guidance and knowledge in return. when i was starting college and everyone was telling me to go be a lawyer, doctor, biophysicist...it was my mom who said:
"i don't care what you do...just make sure you don't need anyone but yourself to get by in life."how genius is that?
i've only been out in the working world for a couple of years after college, but i've been able to accomplish so much and have had so many opportunities come to me thanks to the support of my many mentors. i am always open to being there for other women (and men!) as their mentor as well. i don't think anyone can get anywhere on their own and i am all about sharing knowledge and helping others!

why do martial arts movies have to be so campy and corny? is it impossible for movie makers to find a nice balance between the fine art of martial arts and cinematic beauty? and most importantly - in this day and age, how do such terrible movies make it all the way through funding, conception, production and release without anyone realizing how freakin bad the script is?
randy, not the classiest move to make after parting ways with the UFC.
at least i found a new favorite fighter, enson inoue :) meatball yamamoto
