January 1 of every year, a Japanese tradition is celebrated here in Hawaii. Fukubukuro, meaning “lucky bag,” is a Japanese new year custom where merchants fill bags with popular items and sell them for substantial discount, usually 50% off or more.  The shoppers aren’t able to see inside the bag, until after the bag is purchased.  This tradition began in Tokyo in the early 20th century.  Japanese superstition has says the good fortune in one’s Fukubukuro bag, reflects the luck they will have in the New Year.

Steven Yeun Your Favorite Asian American Zombie Survivor

February 9, has got TWD fans counting down.  With Walking Dead’s 5th Season only days away, we cant help but to get excited about our favorite character, Glenn.  Steven Yeun plays Glenn in the AMC The Walking Dead horror drama.  I have to say, AMC does a fantastic job not stereotyping his Asian American character.  Glenn doesn’t play the typical computer nerd, or the geek, or foreigner with an accent, he’s just a former pizza boy before the world went to hell. In TWD, Glenn and Maggie share a romantic bi-racial relationship.  It’s rare to see an Asian male romantically involved and more seldom sexually involved with a girl thats not Asian on American television.  Kudos to AMC!  Steven plays a regular dude and the fact that he happens to be Asian, is just the cherry on top.  I guess it doesn’t hurt to be named one of the Sexiest Man of 2013 according to People magazine’s annual “Sexiest Man” edition.  This should come as no surprise for fans of The Walking Dead.

I found this awesome post in Audrey Magazine “10 reasons Glenn would make a great boyfriend” check it out.
