So I listened to my gut and switched gears. The drawing and writing came so naturally. I’m happy with the way it […]
This latest comic for Sampan Newspaper was inspired by a Facebook post. Someone left a comment thanking their friend for sharing vaccine sign up information and that they would forward the link to their mother. I was taken aback. What? You’re not handling the sign up process for her? That’s a luxury that I am […]
It was a challenge navigating the MA Covid-19 vaccine sign up process for my dad who was eligible because he falls in the 75+ category for phase 1. Luckily, my cousin helped point me in the right direction. We found a vaccination site located in a Walgreens that was closer to home with available time […]
Thank gawd I attached my comics to emails because a couple months ago my hard drive died and took out all my artwork with it. Sifting through all the messages and downloading them one by one, I came across this old one from 2006 that is still current. Because 15 years later, student loan debt […]
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. […]
Phase 3 of Boston’s reopening begins today.

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.
PAX East is a week away and SONY has decided to pull out of the convention over coronavirus (aka COVID-19) fears. Seriously?
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.

The ugly holiday sweater is officially a trend as every pop culture vehicle and even fast food companies get on the train.
My body is now made up of 75% candy – primarily, Snickers and Twix fun size bars. Once again, I overestimated just how much candy was needed. I bought four giant bags, but only three trick-or-treaters were brave enough to venture up our creepy front steps.
Anyone else have this happen to them?
I am definitely one of the more cheaper mofos out there in the world.
Something that you come to appreciate later in life is the fact that Asian don’t raisin.
Where did the summer go?
Who wears a long sleeve, hooded sweatshirt in 95 degree weather?
Rice is serious bidness. In this week’s issue of the Sampan Newspaper: Who cares what the next iPhone 11 will look like – we want to know what the latest rice cooker technological advances are…well, not me, but for some reason my mother is obsessed with having the latest rice cooker even though the only […]
