2016 Reflections


Finishing my last interviews for 2016 with Mindbodygreen & Sweaty Betty. "What were the most memorable parts of 2016?"  

Wow what a year.

By: Candice Kumai

1- Traveling to Japan to say goodbye to Baachan 🎎 (my Grandmother, our family’s matriarch) with Mom + Sis. Baachan passed away, gently this year, it was a time to peacefully and tranquilly say goodbye. Baachan, I will see you again, one day. I am currently writing my next book, as an homage to her & my deep-rooted Japanese heritage.

2- Praying🙏🏼with monks in the mountains of Koyasan, Japan. It changed my whole life.

3- Cooking with local friends in the islands of Okinawa.

4- Slaying the back of a @Kashi cereal box, milestone in my career.

5- Teaching my mentor @Dr_Oz how to make🍵matcha!

6- Working + speaking with @Nike@NikeNYC I’ve always dreamed of working with them since I was a kid.

7-Signing my 📚 6th book deal with HarperCollins + directing, writing and producing the project as it manifests itself into a glorious gift for you.

8-Spending time at various temples and shrines with Sis in Koyasan, Shikoku Island, Japan, cooking with our family in Tokyo.

9- Bring silly AF with my crew on set, making music videos for snap and IG stories.

10- Watching a bestie @mrs_mccush get married in Lake Tahoe & meeting my college bestie’s @stephaneedawn‘s first 👶 baby Grayson in SF! He is an 😇 angel!

11- Visiting the place where my American Father met my Japanese mother, solo… in Kamakura, Tokyo area, Japan.

12-Ringing in the New Year with my girl @mcsherwood in Bondi🏄🏽 Beach & singing to Justin Beibs with my Goddess girl @LeeSupercharged in Sydney! And healing from that damn breakup!! 😜✨✨

What a magical year! An incredible one to come ✨ 📸 @kevinkimphoto
