Maigal’s Fashion Review : The Met Gala 2015 China: Through The Looking Glass

Posted on: May 5, 2015 | By Maigal

Hi folks,
I’m still alive.  Did you miss me?  I woke up this morning feeling the need to write something about the Met’s Gala 2015 with the theme “China: Through the looking glass”.  Since this is a Chinese theme, if you know me, I’m all about Asian pride. of course I will have something to say about it. I saw some impressive dresses that fit the theme really well and some really plain, boring dresses that I think these people should just stay home instead. Overall, there were a lot of plain dresses where I think these people or designers did not do any research on Chinese art and culture therefore, their dress came out looking like crap.

Here are my top four dresses that win the theme:

Rihanna looks like a goddess here. I love the yellow on her skin. It’s dramatic, it’s elegant and fits the theme like a glove.

Breaking Barriers – The Jeremy Lin Effect

Posted on: February 28, 2012 | By FelixFromNYC

Let me start off by saying this to my fellow Asian men, particularly those of you that have spent a good part of your life here in the U.S.  If you do not remotely feel any sort of pride or joy in the success story of Jeremy Lin, I don’t think you can really be considered an Asian man.  Sorry.  I can pretty much sum it up like this: for all the William Hungs and countless other Asians that have reinforced the negative Asian male stereotypes, Lin is helping people forget all that negativity.  One pass, slam dunk and game-winning 3 pointer at a time.

First let me tell you a bit about my own personal experiences, which I’m sure is not uncommon among other Asian American men that were raised here in the U.S.  Ever since grade school I had to deal with racism.  Whether it was people calling me silly names, or making up taunts that they thought sounded like Chinese (e.g. – ching chong, ding dong, etc.).
