The Mister and I have been doing keto since May. We both have baby weight we need to drop and so far, so good. But, we also still enjoy snacking. I kept seeing these Slim Jim Squealin’ Hot Pork Rinds pop up in my Amazon feed. Finally, we decided to order a bag in one […]
So, the Mister and I have been doing keto since May. I’ve been on a low carb diet off and on for the past few years – moreso, when I developed gestational diabetes during pregnancy and had to cut out most carbs cold turkey, which was not fun. But for the past few years, the […]
Lantern Stories, a public art project in collaboration with the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy for Boston’s Chinatown by artist Yu-Wen Wu, was unveiled recently in Chin Park. And I’m excited that my Black Lives Matter piece was included on one of the lanterns. Back in June, Yi-Wen reached out to me and asked if she […]
A few weeks ago, I picked up a box of Wing Wah mooncakes for my folks from the 99 Ranch Market. I was torn between the super cute packaging with the new flavors like custard and brown sugar tea or the classic white lotus seed paste with two yolks. In the end, the old people’s […]
It feels like I climbed a mountain when in actuality I just got the bare basics done – and not even all of it ‘cuz I still haven’t put away any of the laundry as they continue to sit in teetering piles. Saturday, September 26媽咪 MaMa Chan wanted to celebrate the Mid-Autumn / Moon Festival […]
The other week while on a grocery run for my folks at 99 Ranch Market, I saw the display for mooncakes which was perfect because I totally forgot that the Mid-Autumn Festival is quickly approaching. But which mooncakes to get? And specifically, which brand? Cuz the older folks are ALL about the brand…well, my older […]
If you find the statement to be political or controversial, then you’ve got an issue to deal with – racism. Here’s a Chinese translation of Black Lives Matter which I had my auntie review and give the thumb’s up on: 黑人的命也是命. It roughly translates to “Black peoples’ lives are lives too.” I’ve made the design […]
I haven’t done much lion dancing in quarantine…so, about six months. Dang. That’s a lot of time off. But after my lion dance sister dropped off a children’s-sized lion head for my kiddo recently, I decided to use it for myself instead. It’s the perfect size too considering I barely have any space in the […]
So many lessons being learned during this pandemic. Among them is the fact that all this time we could’ve voted in the comforts of our own home and then either mailed them in or dropped them off into specific boxes for voting ballots around the city. They just want to make it harder and more […]
Prior to covid-19, I didn’t do much grocery shopping at the Asian supermarkets other than picking up the latest boba popcorn snacks or a bag of baby bok choy. Since then, I have become well-versed in the ins & outs of what’s available as I have become my folk’s personal shopper. The meat counter? Check. […]
Things I did before Covid-19…and things I do now during Covid-19.
Phase 3 of Boston’s reopening begins today.
This week my comic strip won’t be appearing in the Sampan Newspaper. There were concerns regarding the content. Editorial suggestions were made, but they would’ve changed the tone…maybe that was the point?
That is all. Full stop.
Who else is worried about getting hate-crimed?
In the beginning, I went hog wild with every chip you could imagine – dill pickle chips, Cheetos, Doritos, boba popcorn, shrimp chips, Andy Capp’s hot fries, honey butter chips and it goes on and on.
The temptation grows with each day. Maybe this time will be different…or maybe not.
My latest covid-19 comic was inspired by a brilliant gif.
It seems as though everyone is expecting the other person to initiate the six feet of social distancing. In the end, no separation has been met – it’s just business as usual.
As we all move into video meetings, online learning and television interviews, there’s just one tip to be mindful of. Because in addition to social distancing, let’s also practice video distancing.
Our boy is bold. Our boy is sassy. And that’s what we love about him.
This coronavirus era has just reaffirmed my mother’s food hoarding / apocalypse planning ways. I guess she was right all along.
In the pre-Coronavirus era, everyone was fine being their nasty selves. Handwashing? WTF was that? After Coronavirus?
PAX East is a week away and SONY has decided to pull out of the convention over coronavirus (aka COVID-19) fears. Seriously?
This was our Friday night. Here’s the latest episode of my new comic “Frank Lee Amazing: Our Life Together.” It’s about me and my family.
It’s a great time be an Asian and Asian American. Coronavirus hysteria is in full force and you can feel extra long looks on you as you’re out and about.
On Saturday January 25th, families will be getting together for lunar new year reunion dinners to celebrate the year of the rat.
Happy new year! Thinking about turning over a new eco-friendly living leaf for 2020? Well, there are plenty of products out there to help you on your way – reusable Ziploc bags, glass tupperware, metal straws and more if you have the funds to overhaul your life.
There’s always going to be something. I typically ignore it because I just don’t give a shit.
The ugly holiday sweater is officially a trend as every pop culture vehicle and even fast food companies get on the train.
