Welcome to a NEW YEAR! In this FIRST episode of 2022, we focus on goal setting in a non-traditional way.

This activity can help focus one's desires and goals. Listen in as Mel, He…

The Great Resignation is an international phenomenon of massive amounts of workers leaving their jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic.

It’s been awhile since we’ve had an episode on female sexuality. We know this topic can be a bit taboo in our culture, and maybe among some of your friendship circles as well. As Asian women, our relationship with our sexuality can be incredibly complicated and nuanced. At times it may be disheartening that we cannot control society’s dialogue abou…
 
In light of Thanksgiving, we wanted to share an older episode that is close to our hearts & serves as a reminder for us to be thankful (prev. Ep 91). People, Places, and things - in the most simple and direct translation, they are simply the definition of a noun. But these nouns are what make up experiences, the many experiences throughout our live…

It's been a wild 4 years, building this podcast turned small multi-media company. What started as a side passion project has grown into a formal business with multiple departments and team members.

"Squid Game" is a South Korean Netflix show that has taken the world by storm! It's eerie, it keeps you on your feet, and it leaves you guessing after each episode. This is one of the few shows all three of us have watched besides "Crash Landing On You", which was also a South Korean Series, so you know we had to do a review of this show too. There…
 
According to UCLA Health, 15% of couples have trouble conceiving. It’s really unfortunate and an emotional journey for many.

We brought on a special guest …
 
When was the last time you learned something new? In this episode, we talk about why continuous learning is so important to us.

**Disclaimer: This episode contains discussion about drug, alcohol use, sexual abuse, and addiction.** The topic of addiction is rather taboo in Asian culture, so it is often unaddressed and misunderstood. Many people are unaware, uneducated, unprepared, and suffer alone. Research has found that Asian-Americans between 18 and 25 drank heavily altho…
 
And baby makes 3! We talk a lot about changes and transitions on this podcast. One of the most beautiful, emotional, exciting, unexpected transitions a woman can go through is pregnancy.

We didn't expect this episode to take such an emotional turn. In Episode 133, we discuss the customs and celebrations associated with the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival. In this episode, we dig deeper into the meaning behind the holiday - concepts of gathering, thanksgiving, prayer, and the symbolism of the moon. We spend some time personally reflecting …
 
The Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as the Moon Festival or Mooncake Festival, is the second-most important holiday after Chinese New Year, dating back 3,000 years when China’s emperor worshipped the moon for bountiful harvests. On this day, it is believed that the moon is at its brightest and fullest size. As we get older, we have grown a genuine …
 
Let’s be real! The invites for weddings start to pile up as we get older and fill up our social calendars. In our first season, we talked about our fantasies of our dream weddings, but we realized that there’s a perspective that we didn’t talk about...attending a wedding as a guest! Whether the waves of weddings have just begun or you’ve attended a…
 
It is officially September and we are fast approaching the fall season.

Mel, Janet, and Helen are 90s kids, two of us being 80s babies. And this past year or so, we’ve been seeing a very quick rise of 90s comeback fashion, especially amongst those who were born in the 2000s. It’s been a bit strange to see flares, bell bottoms, spaghetti straps, fanny packs, and bucket hats make a comeback, but we thought it’d be fun to…
 
So a topic that comes up quite frequently in our post-college 20s and 30s, when we’re freshly moved out of our parent's homes, is about the roof over our heads!! Where do you live?? Are you renting? Are you thinking about buying? What are you looking for in a house? What does your dream house look like? These are questions we’ve had to think about …
 
Summer is usually a time when we all get outdoors, gather with friends and family, and generally interact with a lot of people. However, this summer season is a unique one - as we are on “what we hope to be” the tail end of a global pandemic. By now, we hope you all are vaccinated or are on your way to getting vaccinated. I know it may feel as if C…
