Steve Angello X Steve Aoki

Cinespace, Los Angeles, Calif.

As a first-timer and helper for Dim Mak Tuesdays at Cinespace, I understayed my welcome. Hearing that The Steves' Birthday party was going to last until sunrise, it was rest-assured I would not make it. (No, because I parked at a lot that closes at 2 a.m. daily.)
Being around house aficionados and party club goers is not my scene, but that was out of the question because the people are pretty radical.
The secret guests were Swedish House Mafia, and, of course, the birthday boy himself.
I sat behind the merchandise booth table, but I didn't really help as much as I could because there were already so many of Steve's little helpers.
P.S. The Dim Mak van got a parking ticket. C'mon parking enforcer, is this your way of relaying a birthday message to The Steve?

Cool gals is all I can say
Two Steve heads are better than one, even if one may be split in half
This is not an equation, but it equals loads.. of a good time, nonetheless
Steve's little helpers help themselves

Park Plaza Hotel, Los Angeles, Calif.

A man's lure tactic: alcohol or a costumed figure

The interns made it out alive!

Since Audrey Magazine is KoreAm Journal's sister publication, we interns got the chance to help out and dine at the same time for the publication's 20th anniversary and Unforgettable gala's 10th anniversary. To give you a better portrait of the enormousness of the event, I wore foundation and fake eyelashes for the first time. Melody and I did have to assist both Miss Koreas with raffle ticket sales. It was a drag to be walking amidst good looking figures, but overall, it was a pleasure to be both behind the scenes and out there.

Lawry's dinner, celebrities, performances, gift bags, red carpet, after party, decor and more .

Prominent figures like Grace Park, Chan Ho Park and Juju Chang along with presenters Lindsay Price, Amerie, Lisa Ling and more joined in the celebration of the Asian community's achievements.

By the end of the night..well, let's just say it was Unforgettable, but I'm sure others' hippocampus weren't functioning as well.

A Noy, B, C and P Noy

Snagged some bags and sipped on some tea
The libelous (obscene and politically incorrect) possibilities are endless.
Sinead O' Conner Jr., is that you?
Miniature Asian boys give a 90 degree angle gesture. How complimentary!

As Coco extended his hand, I said, "[My hands are] Basa!"
The Power Ranger holds a fist of fury

I drove into Paramount Pictures and asked the ticket man where Raleigh Studios parking was, but with his allegiance to Paramount, he followed some code of silence. C’mon it’s common courtesy, so direct me to the Ra-Raleigh Studios!

Maybe I would have been better off lost, though. Kidding.

The Noy private screening was a manufactured Hollywood experience with the lesser knowns (insert names here), Ron Jeremy, Michael Copon and Poretics (to name the only familiar faces).

Coco Martin was held captive in the limo until the guests were forced to have some cake, drinks and fun!

To be honest, best of luck to Noy in getting an Academy nod for foreign film because I’ve seen better and more deserving Filipino films this year. I thought the docudrama didn't clearly present time, so the plot was random with an inundation of stillness to melodrama. Ron Jeremy even said he thought the the plot wasn't good enough, though the acting was great. "Of course everyone's going to say 'great film,'" he added. The use of music was a classic, though.

Before I left, I said goodbye to the star of the movie, who asked how old I was. "How old do I look?!" I said with four goodie bags hung on my arm (it's not all for me).

It’s a blessing and a parusa that I’m always the youngest person at events because it makes me want to work harder so that I won't end up in limbo.

"[Sanrio] is under our feet as well as over our heads.”

It's a bird, it's a blimp!
Putt, putt!

They fart art
Don't drop the bar of soap!

I spy some tea cups

Pop-up truck
What a display!
The red carpet finally settled down
The small gift

'Twas a big gift to be at Small Gift, Sanrio's 50th anniversary celebration at The Barker Hanger in Santa Monica, Calif.
Yesterday's press preview opened up a whole new level of consciousness called dreamland, and everyone who was there agrees. Even Freud would agree. I talked to a Georgia-native who even did that shuffling down move due to the level of pure excitement tingling down her spine.
Everything from the caricature sketching to Pink's hot dogs and drinks was a free trial to impress the press. If only I was 21, then the event would have been even more smashing! Until then, I shall pass out from free goodies!
Small Gift L.A. runs from Nov. 12 to 21, so for more info., visit
