Hot Import Nights: Los Angeles, CA (8/19/6)

Hey Everyone!

I just got back from a relatively long and very grueling trip to Los Angeles, CA! We started class on Thursday, August 17th, but right after my final class that afternoon, I hopped on a plane to join the other girls for a Bikini Fashion show at Club Allstar on Stanton Beach. It was so good seeing all the girls again along with some new faces and seeing everyone in their cute bikinis! Stephanie Ly, Abby M., Amina Sade, Michelle Zen, Erica Ramos, Humaira, Amber Lee, Connie Chu, and I all modeled two sets of bikinis then afterwards the rest of the girls sold body shots to the crowd. It was a big hit and best of all, we all had fun! Here are a few shots I took:

After the show, we stayed at a beautiful house in Huntington Beach that overlooked the ocean. In the morning some of the girls went to do a fitting for the big fashion show at The Highlands in Hollywood that night featuring the designs of Alexia Xie. Meanwhile, Dee and I managed to fit in a shoot with Green Bottle Productions before heading to the fitting. At the show, there were photographers everywhere and television crews. However, it went off without a hitch and were glad to go celebrate afterwards. It was a night of many events as we were also celebrating KimLoan's birthday and her cover release on BN magazine. Here are some images from the night:

The next morning, Jae and I decided to take advantage of our last day in that house by taking a morning jog on the beach. It was a tough workout but very relaxing and pretty. We even collected a few sea shells on the shore and got to see Ruby's Diner on the end of the Huntington Beach pier. After getting all our stuff together, we went to a beautiful house along the mountains in Corona to shoot in Alexia Xie's dresses with awesome photographers Mike Brochu and Greg Hadel. After the dresses were shot, we managed to do some fun swimsuit shoots as well. Here's a few behind-the-scenes shots I took:

Well, I hope you enjoyed this update. Again, thanks to all the wonderful photographers I had the opportunity to work with, everyone who went out of their way to make us feel welcomed or accomodate us, and especially the wonderful fans who made this trip that much more awesome! My next show will be in Las Vegas, NV for Night Shift on Saturday, September 9th. Hope to see you all there!

Night Shift - Flushing, NY (8/12/6)

Hi Everyone,

I just got back from a very fast-paced and jam-packed trip to the Big Apple! After one flight delay and long delays in security with the new TSA regulations, I finally made it to New York City! Upon arrival, I had some yummy Korean food then met up with PMGirls interns Q and Kim. We drove around New York and did some sightseeing before getting ready and hitting up four parties to promote for the PMGirls party the following night at Pachita.

Me, KimLoan, a club promoter, and Q & Kim (PM interns)

On Saturday morning, the interns and I got up early to do some shopping in Brooklyn. We found some great deals before heading back to KimLoan's place to get ready for the show. We then made the hour long drive to Shea Stadium in Flushing which allowed me to fit in a much needed nap. There was already a line when we arrived and later we were pleasantly surprised with the new 2007 Exotic Imports Calendar. It looks awesome and everyone was pleased with the way it came out. The show was pretty packed and exciting with the media there. We all got to do interview spots for BET and Stuff Magazine. However, other than that, the show was very relaxed and the weather was perfect!

After the show, we packed things up and headed to the after party at Pachita, located above Pacha in the meat packing district of New York City. The DJ had a great mix of house, hip hop, top 40, and some oldies-but-goodies thrown in there. Connie and I teamed up to sell body shots to the crowds while the interns, Q and Kim, partnered together. The crowd was awesome, and Connie and I had a great time mingling, dancing, and hanging out with the rest of the girls!

After we finished selling the shots, most of the girls that lived in the area decided to call it a night. The club did not close until 4AM, so I checked out the other floors which offered a range of Hard House and Trance music. The club was huge! After leaving the club, it was only a few hours before I had to go to the airport so we drove around New York to catch some missed tourist sites like the River Cafe and Grand Central Station. Before leaving, I had the best chicken and rice gyro ever from a kiosk on the street corner. Yum!

Thanks to everyone who made my trip to New York fun and enjoyable. Special thanks to KimLoan's friend Wayne for driving us around and showing me all the sights! I had an awesome time and really understand the term "New York Minute" now.
