Ginger Asian... huh?

I've got these strange freckles on my arms, and on my face.  Since when do Asians have freckles at all, let alone on their arms like a ginger?!  It's absurd.

On that note, my freckles can be cute.  Sometimes.  Know another Asian that has freckles?  Lucy Liu.

I've never found Lucy Liu attractive, leastwise not her face.  Is it so wrong that I'm upset Hollywood couldn't find another actress from the 1.something billion Asians in the world without such slanted eyes?  Small, sure, but slanted? Further, while I know the stereotype of the Asian body is flat and straight, scrawny and flavorless, there do exist others with figures and a face!  Or, maybe, that's exactly what Hollywood wanted to see - the stereotype that isn't quite so typical of the Asian population.  Again, Asians don't really have freckles.  So if they're going out of their way to find something unique then why her and why freckles?  Why not pretty eyes or curves?

No, no, I'm not being racist - how can one be racist against one's own kind?  Harsh?

Bah.  I'm just ranting.  But you can't deny it's true.

Lucy Liu just is not attractive.  Worst yet, she can't act.

Woe is me.

At least we can get that doll thing going on... right?  (Can't remember if I ever posted this, but here are the eye-opening CIRCLE contact lenses.)
I'm scared.

Joe Weider's Olympia 2011

Last weekend I went to my first Olympia Expo and Mr. Olympia show held in Las Vegas, NV.  There was quite an array of people there, people I wouldn't have guessed to be interested and others I wouldn't deign to ever miss a show.  I didn't have a chance to take many photos but Ronnie Coleman, Tito Ortiz, and Carmen Elektra!

Phil Heath won!  What a fine way to go out for Jay Cutler, to be succeeded by his legacy.  The pair are, for lack of a better word, SO CUTE!  On stage, they were constantly posing next to each other, hugs left and right and words of encouragement.  It is a little sad that Jay is done but this gives others like Phil Heath and Kai Greene their chance at victory.  Obviously, I know little to nothing about bodybuilding but The Predator sure looked great.  His routine was awesome and I thought his physique looked amazing.  We think he'll have lots to show for in the future shows to come.

(Darn, I want to post a video about the Olympia competition but YouTube has taken them all down - they're being so strict on Copyright stuff.  /sigh)

On a side note, the clerk at Sally Beauty Supply told me I look like this chick and I'm not sure how to feel about that.  =/

I am thinking of studying how to put on hair extensions with the bonded weave technique.  This past July I had that technique used on me, but it was done in Vietnam so I'm not sure the states will apply that same methodology.  I actually prefer the bonded weave technique to the braided or clip-on method.  There is nothing like the fear of seeing your hair fall out in wefts, still debating whether I ought to add more glue or just remove it all and start fresh... or just go short.

Frightening - HBC for Marc Jacobs

I question the motive for this shoot.

What is the message Marc Jacobs is trying to convey here?

Sexy Wasteland - Peter Dawson

This is cool.

My Modern Met

Born In The '60s

Sometimes I wonder why I wasn't born in the '60s.  The style is so chic, elegant, retro, feminine and fun!

I will have to revisit the pin-up and '60s style makeup at a later date.  Perfecting that eyeliner and minimalist look on an Asian face have proven to be quite the challenge.  And while I love watching makeup How To videos from my favorite artists like Kandee Johnson, I realize the limits of their techniques given their facial structures are so.. well, structured.  The lines Kandee creates on her face and the illusions she projects cannot be exactly replicated on myself; my nose is not tall enough, my cheek bones not as narrow, my lips not as big, and worst of all my eyelids aren't as... liddy.  (Yes, I know that's not a word but somehow I know you still understand my point.)

So, future goal will be to test those bounds and hopefully have successful results!
