A Weekend of Hostessing

Hi friends!

Sorry for the length of time between posts… the following post should offer some explanation :p

The past few weeks have been a crazy whirlwind of activity. First, our production company (Level Five Films) has been busy shooting our biggest film to date, “Snap”. Though we have been a company for only a few short months, we have had the incredible fortune to work with some inspiring and talented people. It’s been awesome to see how much we are capable of… and to hear the great reviews we’ve gotten so far! We’re hoping to submit all seven (wow.. seven) of our short films to the Playhouse West Film Festival at the end of this month, and i’m sure i’ll have plenty to update yall on then 🙂

Last day on set of SNAP
On the acting front, I recently got the opportunity to work with Wong Fu Productions on a short film about prom – the third “high school dance” film I’ve been in just this past year, ha. Me being… not the most Asian of Asians… I had no idea how exciting of an opportunity working with Wong Fu truly was. It was only until a group of high school boys came up to us while shooting and shyly asked us if we were with Wong Fu… and after several of my good friends (you know who you are.. cough cough rachel cough) bombarded facebook/twitter/instagram/etc with exclamations and e-high-fives… that i realized what an opportunity this was. Needless to say, working with the guys from Wong Fu was such a privilege, regardless of their status on the interwebs 🙂

With all the craziness of filming several projects at once (in true Me fashion… note to self, MUST learn how to say no…) finally winding down, I was excited to have a weekend of FUN in my planner. (Just kidding, I don’t have a planner. Though I really should invest in one…)

Saturday afternoon, a few of us girls planned a surprise bridal shower for our lovely friend Anne. LA (the master party planner) did a picture perfect job, and our surprise was a great success (tears upon arrival being the ultimate test). It was so much fun to kick back on a comfy couch, laughing and sipping on girly drinks with a group of amazing ladies. Seeing as how we are all usually working way too hard on our careers, it was nice to just enjoy each other’s company and celebrate our Anne getting MARRIED 🙂

BUT. LA and I had one more party up our sleeves… yesterday we (along with Ginny and Aaron) hosted an Easter Dinner for our LA (Los Angeles.. not to be confused with LA the person) family. Despite the fact that the three of us were completely wiped from the previous day’s festivities, we rallied and rose at 7am to cook our 20 lb turkey. When 4:00 PM came around, we had 20 people packed into Ginny/Aaron’s living room and more food than I have ever seen in my entire life… Twas a dream 😀 Despite our worrying, our turkey was a huge success and cooked beyond perfectly. The food, the beautiful Easter weather, and the best possible company made this Easter one of the best I’ve ever had.

All in all, it has been an exciting couple of weeks, and I am once again reminded of how much I love this “big city” life. As always, i miss you all dearly and think of you often when rushing from here to there 🙂
Sending my love and wishing you all were here to adventure with me,
xx, little bee
