Author of "Everything I Never Told You" and "Little Fires Everywhere" (Both of which are headed to the movies and television) @pronounced_ing said that her drive to share her good fortune with her peers comes from her own early career uncertainties. “I know something about what it’s like to be an Asian-American woman who’s trying to get her voice out there with a debut novel,” she said. “It can be a hard sell.” Read more from Celeste Ng's interview with @nytimes at http://aanow.com . . . #aanow #asianamerican #aapi #pacificislander #celesteng #nyt #nytimes #author #books #asianauthor
In 2018, Vietnamese Americans found new political prominence. In Orange County, California, Asian-American voters are thought to have helped flip three congressional seats so that the previous Republican stronghold is now entirely represented by Democrats. And Vietnamese Americans — who have historically voted Republican by wide margins — may have contributed to this shift, according to experts. In California, at least 24 Vietnamese-Americans ran for local office in the recent mid-term elections.

One bikini a day; daily swimmer. Sofia by ViX bikini. My name was “chubby girl”. When I showed my Instagram photos to a Chinese woman in early 50’s, she commented several times on the fact that I was born slender, attributable to my genes. Yes, but I explained to her that at one point of my life my name was “chubby girl”. Up to a point in my teen years, I became tired of being skinny/scrawny, looking as if I came from a famine. I started to eat five pies a day. One day I visited my girlfriend who wasn’t home at that time. I didn’t leave my name with her male friend. Few hours later, she called and asked, “Did you come by today? ”Why? I didn’t leave my name,” I answered. She said that her friend told her, “A chubby girl” stopped by.My mother also warned me then that I no longer looked exquisite. That was my turning point. During those chubby girl days, my social friends continued to tell me that I looked the same. Few years later, the truth came out, “Oh, you lost weight.” I realized mother’s advice was the best. #bestadvice #healthylifestyle #healthandwellness #healthylife #swimmerlife #bestlifeadvice #swimmer #chubbygirl #asians #swimlovers #loveforswimming #rayban #eyecandy #happyanniversary #love #lovely #katespade #huffpostwoman #fashionblogger #fblogger #fitnessblogger #aanow #aapi #huffpostasianvoices #chineseamerican #fitnessmotivation #truebeautyisholistic #yutsai88 #siswimsearch
MEET THE SEADRIFT CHARACTERS Sau Van Nguyen and his brother Chinh, both Vietnamese refugees, were arrested after the fatal shooting of Seadrift fisherman Billy Joe Aplin. Due to tensions in Seadrift and the surrounding areas, the murder trial was moved more than 100 miles inland and held in Seguin, TX. Sau and Chinh were 20 and 21 years old at the time.

One bikini a day; daily swimmer. ViX Paula Hermanny striped black and white bikini. St John necklace, and Ray Ban Wayferer sunglasses. Today in the sauna I chatted with a young Indian man. I told him I recently came back from a Vietnam/Cambodia vacation. For most Vietnamese women, white skin is synonymous with faminine beauty and high social status. That’s why Vietnamese women cover themselves from head to toes as a protection from the sun. I told him that’s the same for Chinese/Taiwanese. According to him, Indian male or female who have light skin are also considered as better looking. He observes that is opposite here in the US, where white people like to get suntan. The ultraviolet was so strong in Vietnam that I got tan lines on my feet from the sandal straps. Whenever I see people getting suntan by the pool or the beach, I wonder if they know that sun damage is irreversible and can cause cancer as well as premature aging. When it’s too late, no plastic surgeon can help. #rayban #raybansunglasses #raybanwayferer #vixswim #vixswimwear #chinese #taiwanese #chineseamerican #aanow #me #swimmer #bikinifitness #huffpostwomen #huffpostlifestyle #swimmerbody #swimsuit #loveforswimming #swimfashion #swimsuitmidel #yutsai88 #sundamage #allnatural #truebeautyisholistic

One bikini a day; daily swimmer. Marina West Maui blue bikini bought from the same seller from Hawaii. Today after shower at the gym locker room, there were no one else except me and another person who startled me. This person was about 6’4” with shoulder length curly dirty blonde hair, looking through their duffel bag. Their breasts were not the feminine type and were small for a tall person. I immediately looked lower at the brief, and was relieved to see no bulge between the legs. At first I was scared and thought I should report this to the front desk, but then I calmed down and put myself in the other person’s position. It was none of my business whether it was a man or woman. #swimmer #lockerroom #bikinifitness #aanow #huffpostwomen #huffpostlifestyle #me #instastyle #swimmerbody #swimsuit #swimfitness #swimmerforkife #loveforswimming #swimlover #swimfashion #swimwearfashion #instaswim #swim #swimsuitmodel #yutsai88 #truebeautyisholistic #allnatural #rayban #raybanaviator

One bikini a day; daily swimmer. Tularosa bikini. In the medical office where I work, a patient returned with a lot of weight loss. I asked her why, and she told me that she had bariatric stomach surgery in April. The weight loss treatment was at the recommendation of her cardiologist. “I feel great and have much more energy since then,” she reported with happy eyes. I normally do not mention my fitness regimen to large patients, but I started to tell her about my knee surgery 3 年前發佈 and how the daily swimming also improved my health. I showed her my Instagram bikini photos . She said she has a heated pool at home and will start swimming. I warn her not to worry about looking even better, because she may lose her social girlfriends. Those who “live for today” and do not believe in taking care of themselves may not live long. I also encouraged her to join a gym for a variety of physical programs to keep her in a healthy and active lifestyle. #encouragement #encourage #fitnessblogger #healthblogger #medicaloffice #patients #me #driven #dedication #successfulwomen #aanow #huffpostwomen #huffpostlifestyle #lifeanddeath #healthylifestyle #healthandwellness #allnatural #truebeautyisholistic #mybodymybff #bodypositive #aapi #chineseamerican #crazyrichasians #fashionblogger #fblogger #fitnessmotivation #loveyourbody #bikinilife #bariatricsurgery

The response to our @seadriftfilm documentary has been extraordinary! I’m hoping that our film not only canonizes this story for Vietnamese American and Texas history but also creates a lasting impact on how we view refugees and immigrants as a country.

One bikini a day; daily swimmer. Vix Paula Hermanny Jasper bia tube. I go to two different gym pool locations depending on my work schedule. The one I go in the morning before work usually does not leave me much time to socialize. The other location I go after work gives me more time, therefore, more people know me. Today the elderly Japanese lady in the loafer lane told me that people here asked her about me because I hadn’t been there awhile. I said, “They don’t know my name so how do people refer to me. She replied in English with Japanese accent, “They called you the “hot” lady” Because I swim with a floral cap, so I asked jokingly, “You mean the “hat” or the “hot” lady?”She joked back and said, “Both whatever.” Later as I walked into the Spa to join her, she said to the crowd, “Here comes Ms. USA.” #fblogger #fitnessblogger #healthandwellness #me #instastyle #friendship #japanese #photooftheday #photography #vixswim #vixswimwear #yutsai88 #look #swimwear #bikinilife #bikinigirl #beachlife #whosthatgirl #allnatural #noplasticsurgery #headturner #hotwomen #aanow #aapi #truebeautyisholistic #fblogger #blogger #fashionblogger #musthave
Congratulations to Tina Maharath! The 27 year old financial analyst was elected state senator of Ohio's District 3, last week. In doing so she became: - Ohio’s first Asian-American state senator. - America’s first Laotian-American state senator. - Ohio’s first Asian-American woman in the general assembly - The only democrat who flipped a seat in our senate chamber this election, after the caucus hasn’t been able to flip a seat since 2006. "Better yet, I did it as a woman without accepting ANY PAC (Political Action Committee) contributions outside of 80-20 initiatives who support bi-partisan Asian American civic engagement because it is a cause that has always been important to me." . . . #aanow #asianamerican #laoatian #aapi #pacificislander #ohio #tinamaharath
Many Asians are big gamblers. A recent study has shown that Asian-American college students have a higher rate of compulsive gambling. The study suggests that "impulsivity is not a factor in problem gambling among Asian-American students, as it is for white students. Rather, they gamble to cope with negative feelings, such as anxiety, shame, loneliness or a sense of being disconnected from the college culture or mainstream society."

Excited to support @seadriftfilm ’s premiere at Slamdance Film Festival 2019. We need a little more financial help to get the feature documentary completed for January! Please help us get to the finish line for this progressive tale of racism and reconciliation. Thanks for your support! “In 1979, a young Vietnamese refugee shoots and kills a white crab fisherman at the public town docks in Seadrift, TX. What began as a dispute over fishing territory erupted into violence and ignites a maelstrom of boat burnings, KKK intimidation, and other hostilities against Vietnamese refugees along the Gulf Coast. Set during the early days of Vietnamese arrival in the U.S. Seadrift examines the circumstances that led up to the shooting and its dramatic aftermath, and reveals the unexpected consequences that continue to reverberate today.”
LAUNCH DAY! We’re embarking on a 30 Day race to raise $50,000 to finish SEADRIFT and get it ready for its world premiere at the 2019 Slamdance Film Festival!

One bikini a day; daily swimmer. ViX Paula Hermanny burgundy Celina bikini. Today is my “legal” birthday. I chose this burgundy color because in Chinese culture red symbolizes happiness, luck, joy, and celebration. I like this bikini so much such that I have not worn it in the pool. I don’t want the color to fade from the effect of chlorine. A beautiful bikini is like a beautiful outfit which can make a person look better. Chinese has a saying,”People rely on clothes. Bhuddha rely on gold cover.” #fitnessblogger #huffpostwomen #huffpostasianvoices #representationmatters #vixswim #vixswimwear #fblogger #fashiongram #igstyle #igstyleblogger #fashionblogger #asianamerican #sexy #elegant #look #smile #photography #fotografia #likes #model #love #photographyoftheday #photoshoot #models #motivation #aanow #representationmatters #aapi
