#fangirlproblems

Heyo! Warning: my dad is rolling his eyes at this post, but at the end of the day, tiger cubs are just teenage girls. So...

Lulu and I snagged a pity-invite to the Time 100 cocktail hour in NYC last night. I think the argument was, "they could have been eaten by jungle cats, at the very least let them party!" So there we were: two relatively unknown and decidedly non-influential kids wandering around trailblazers and innovators -- neuroscientists, chefs, revolutionaries, performing artists -- who have done more than I ever will for the world.
Not to sound jaded and blasé or anything...but HOLY SHEEPSKIN KILT IT WAS REALLY REALLY COOL!! First of all, I didn't know "the red carpet" was literally a red carpet.


I tried to give myself pep-talks beforehand. "Come on, Sophia. Celebrities are people too. The rockstars may be intimidated by the scientific geniuses. The geniuses could be nervous around the slick politicans. And the politicians are definitely terrified of the SNL comics." So my M.O. was to act cool and confident and (more importantly) refrain from tackily attacking famous people. Well...that lasted all of fifteen seconds.


"Hi, I'm Bruno." --Bruno Mars
Sophia: I KNOW [because I've actually been worshiping you and your epic fedora from 5 feet away for the last few minutes!!!]
My mom made a joke about Tiger Mom vs. The Lazy Song.
Tigermom: My girls are obssessed with you...and how old are you, 12?
Brunomars: 12?! Nah, I'm 48.
Tigermom: I'm actually 48.
Brunomars: You're 48?!! I'm 23.
Sophia (regaining control of vocal chords): Wait. You also wrote F**k You, right?!?!
Brunomars: Yes...
Sophia: AAAAAAAH BRILLIANT NICE TO MEET YOU BYE!!

I love him.


Oh hey look, it's my hero...Mark Wahlberg is such a boss. If you haven't seen The Departed, The Fighter, and The Other Guys, please do so right now. He talked to my parents about parenting. From what I heard, he sounds like a fantastic dad. He then said it looked like Lulu and I "turned out to be fine and great kids." I might have passed out, not sure.


Turning the tables: Lulu (photocreds for all shots she's not in, by the way) started snapping the paparazzi.


Notice the wrist jewelry, from right to left: bracelet, watch...HAIR TIE. Lack of attention to detail. I need to get my life together. 



We spent a lot of time gawking. "OH MY GOD IT'S DR. RAMACHANDRAN!!" (He invented the mirror box to cure phantom limb pain.) "LOOK LOOK LOOK IT'S RAIN!" (I'm a huge fan of Asian pop,  but that's a topic for another post). We also spotted Martha Stewart, Chris Colfer (of Glee, championing an anti-bullying platform), Blake Lively, Wael Ghonim (used Facebook to catalyze peaceful revolution in Egypt), and Cory Booker (mayor of Newark) among others. Not all the honorees were there. As a soccer girlfriend, I was really hoping to see Lionel Messi. But he needed to do work against Madrid today, so he is forgiven :)

Because we were D-list, Lulu and I had to leave before the fancy dinner. Came back to New Haven and ended Passover with matzah brei (discovery: soaking the matzah in cider is like charoset for lazy people!!) followed by LEAVENED pasta. Quality evening.

What an embarassing post. I hope I've definitively convinced you that we are mere mortals (not tigers or devils or crazy Asian invaders from outer space or whatever). Next post will probably be Q&A, and then I might start rambling about things I like. How does that sound?

  2. Wow now I'm incredibly jealous! You all looked great. I would so be framing that picture with Mark Wahlberg right now if I were you. Love him. And I'm really enjoying your blog, by the way. It's nice to know how normal you are :-)

    ReplyDelete
  3. Whoa, Sophia, this is spectacular! What a fabulous time. And you are stunning!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Great post. Thanks for taking the rest of us with you for your night out. Most of us will never get to experience the red carpet and all the glamour that follows it. BTW, loved the dresses. You all looked fabulous!

    ReplyDelete
  5. hahaha bruno mars conversation <3 love it.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Were you able to mingle effectively despite your David Brooks-ian social ineptitude?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Okay, first of all, I cannot BELIEVE your Tiger Mother let you out in public wearing THAT DRESS. ;-D (You and your sister dazzle, my dear, and the 'rents look pretty awesome, too!) Secondly, what a FUN time! Thanks for all the pics and for sharing your evening with us.

    ReplyDelete
  8. You're adorable! I don't care what you write about, you just make me smile with your confident and witty writing style!

    ReplyDelete
  9. 1) Love love LOVE the dress.

    2) Yeahhhhhh, I would have fangirled myself a little bit at Mark Wahlberg. I would have totally lost my mind if it was Christian Bale.

    3) I almost went down the aisle, at my own wedding, with a hair tie around my wrist. It happens to the best of us. :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. Ha ha--I always have a hair tie around my wrist. They should make them with rhinestones or something so people might think it's a bracelet. You looked gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Um, your family is beautiful and perfect. So good looking! Maybe the tiger mom thing works after all - considering you two girls are beautiful, smart, and yes- normal ;)

    I'm definitely jealous of your glamorous night, and I'm sure you'll only get to have more amazing experiences as you start university and put that tiger cub brain to good use ;)

    Bruno Mars! And you all look just fabulous on the red carpet.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Love the pics! at least the hair tie wasn't orange like the one on my wrist now :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. love the photo post! i can get over how awesome you are, totally the type of person i'd want to be friends with. love your dress! you and your family look gorgeous (well...you ARE gorgeous)
    and i'd want to shake the hand of whoever helped write "F--k You" as well!

    ReplyDelete
  14. "...and how old are you, 12?" - this totally rocks! :D

    ReplyDelete
  15. Wow....amazing! Awesome pics :) you all look beautiful!

  17. 0.0

    *dies from excitement dissipated from the article*

    YAY! more Q&A!

    What are your career path goals as of now? Or do plan to figure it all out during college/future?

    Do you have a strange obsession (I'd particularly like to hear about your Asian pop obsession actually, although that's not strange)?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Its so cool that you are an asian jew, I am too. Except I am adopted from china not half/half, but it's still cool!

    ReplyDelete
  19. So cool how it seems like you, Lulu, and your mom can share clothes btw :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Great PIX! Who are all those other people posing with the Chua-Rubenfelds? You folks are just full of surprises. Will I ever see you at The Cullman-Heyman Tennis Center again? Your family will always be on YALE'S A+ LIST (even if Harvard wins the FIRST TIGER CUB WAR)! My oldest daughter graduated from Harvard and she turned out alright.

  21. Please tell me Mark said "Say hi to your mother for me"

    ReplyDelete
  22. That dress could have its own blog. Gorgeous family. What crazy Chinese calendar is Mrs. C using to put her age at 48? 30, tops. Loved "The Death Instinct." Please tell me your Dad is well into his next book. Great blog.

    ReplyDelete
  23. HA! You think matzah in cider is lazy-people charoset? Try plain apricot jam!

    You guys all look great! I loved "how old are you, 12?"

    ReplyDelete
  24. I wish I could get a pity invite to something like that.

    I have friends who would kill to meet Mark Wahlberg. Me, I'd prefer to meet John Krasinski. Though I'd probably collapse on the floor if I ever got the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  25. 1. Your family is gorgeous!
    2. I really like your style of writing!
    3. Thanks for the firsthand account of what must have been a wild night (Dr. Ramachandran :O So jealous)!
    4. LOL at the hairtie thing :)
    5. Keep the interesting blog entries coming!

  30. You seriously crack me up! Love your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  31. You remind me of the high school version of myself (which is only 4 years ago but somehow seems like a lifetime ago). Keep up the good work and I expect great things from you.

    ReplyDelete
  32. ahhh congratulations! I love your blog!!
    you got to see chris colfer??? sooo lucky!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love it-- thanks for sharing! That must have been such an exciting night!

    Could you maybe share with us a bit about your world travels? When I got to the paragraph in your mother's book that is a straight list of all the places you've visited I actually had to put the book down and walk away for a while, I was so jealous and blown away. I bet seeing so many places and cultures has had an interesting impact on your life.

    Can't wait for the Q&A! Thanks! (and I know you don't really need one more person telling you this, but seriously-- your family has a major monopoly on attractiveness)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hi sophia!! Do you or your sister have twitter/facebook?

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love the guy in the middle of the paparazzi that has a huge grin on his face for the camera. Most of them look bewildered that someone brought a camera to the red carpet. hehe

    ReplyDelete
  36. LOL I would do the exact same pep talk before meeting these extraordinary people! But then freak out when I actually see them. You and your family looked great! I was laughing my butt off with the Bruno Mars story. Thanks for sharing! I love your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Wow what a night.. Yeah Q&A sounds great, I'm dying to see what books your into!!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Wow! You all must've had a BLAST! The pictures look fantastic, and you looked gorgeous, Sophia!
    Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I like people who update their blogs! sweet! :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Bruno Mars AND Mark Wahlberg?

    I'm dead jealous. I'm in love with the latter.

    ReplyDelete
  41. OMG! You actually saw Rain???? That's who I would have been looking for!!! LOL. saw him in concert last year at the G20 concert while I was living in Korea :-) Although, i've been a huge fan since Full House. Anywho, Super excited you actually got to see him! I'm a huge asian pop/drama fan myself. Glad you had a blast!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Love your dress and your hair tie!

    For your next Q&A, could you share your opinion on private schools especially high school? My husband and I talked about paying top $$$ for a small house in the best school district in our area. But now I am thinking to save the money and to send our kids to a private school instead.

    Is it funny that you will help us make a decision on real estate? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  43. Bruno Mars and Rain???? *gasp* I don't know what I would've done first?? Squealed or turned into a stalker.....hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  44. Your mother is 48??
    No way!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. So glamorous!
    Well deserved kiddo...

  46. Sophia,

    After watching this Taiwanese video "Western mom vs Chinese mom: Who is Better?"

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQ0Qfn689ZA

    your mom may want to sue the media company that produced it.

    ReplyDelete
  47. @the person above me, "white man ass kisser" WOW. hah some people just love to describe themselves online dont they?

    ANYWAYS, Sophia, i just wanted to say i love your blog! haha i have a "tiger mom" as well so i can definitely relate somewhat. :) And to all the people who believe that asian kids are "oppressed" well honestly that is so not true. In all honesty the "nice" parents who allow their kids do to anything they want are really just selfish individuals who are too consumed with themselves/their own interests to even try to help their kids become the best they can be. so the asians win. again. XD haha

    p.s. you've mentioned that you have a boyfriend? how did you get your mom to allow you to date? i mean my parents think dating is a huge distraction from school/piano/etc. therefore they're against dating for me >.<

    ReplyDelete
  48. For Q&A: Do your parents expect you to go to a typical asian career path, like medicine? Otherwise, do they not pressure you to be a lawyer like they are? Are you totally free to choose what you want to do for a career?

    ReplyDelete
  49. Not worth spending top dollar on best school district unless 1)you really like living there and 2)you have more than 2 kids.

    I purchased a house in an area I really liked and could afford but has middling schools. The schools don't bother me because my kids will be homeschooled and then educated at a boarding school for high school. Kid can pick school that's the best fit for their interests, whether it be lacrosse, music, science, whatever). We also save money on other things, like tennis club membership, horseback riding lessons -- all available for much less than in city with best schools.

    Money saved on mortgage = tuition for boarding school. Ha.

  50. *obsessed, not obssessed...

    ReplyDelete
  51. ahh so jealous!!

    my friend directed me to your blog because i have a picture on my fb posing like a tiger. i also have an asian mother, jewish father, younger sister, and two samoyeds!! but you met bruno mars and mark wahlberg, so you win.

    love the blog :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Bwwwhahaha! Oh my gravy that was funny...girl you got a gift...consider a writing career will you!

    ReplyDelete
  53. any advice for studying/working hard?

    ReplyDelete
  54. 1. any pictures of mr. boyfriend? ;)

    2. how are you spending your time as a second semester senior?

    ReplyDelete
  55. You guys are awesome. I also saw your pix in NYT.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I'm going to have to agree with your dad here: This post comes across as incredibly self-indulgent and narcissistic. Come on, Sophia, you're better than this..

    Excited for the Q&A posts though. :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. I love your wrist "jewelry". I sport those all the time. Maybe you will make it fashionable. Funny blot BTW.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your blogs! They are so very interesting to read and love how you put a lot of photos up. God, how I would love to be at an event like the TIME 100.. /jealousy

    ReplyDelete
  59. ahhh! you're writing is GREAT. so jealous you got to meet Bruno Mars and Mark Wahlberg!

    Questions:
    1) whats the boyfriend like?!
    2) what activities were you involved in during high school?
    3) how's been a SSS (second semester senior)?!

    ReplyDelete
  60. favorite/recommended books?!

    ReplyDelete
  61. what are your favorite websites?

    ReplyDelete
  62. WRITE A POST ABOUT YOUR BOYFRIEND PLEASEEEE. :)
    And, who's your favourite composer?

    ReplyDelete
  63. Hey Sophia. So I really enjoy your writing and have so much respect for you. but...

    you said in your last post that the sexy tiger outfits the Time people brought weren't "really your cup of tea" but then the last photo of this post is basically a straight shot of your ass in a really tight dress. this just hit me as sort of hypocritical. you might not have noticed it, but please watch your judgement, chica. :] you are incredibly blessed, but blessings like those you have should be coupled with the proper humility.

    i know it must be tough having all these strangers watching you, but that's what blogging opens you up to, and you're a strong girl. i really do wish the best for you and your family :] keep it up, i'm sure people of all stripes (sorry, pun) can get something meaningful from what you share.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Sophia,I would not have phrased it the way the last post said about your judgment, but I kind of agree with him/her. I have nothing but good wishes for you and your family. I have great respect for your mother's strength, for you and your sister for who you are. But somehow I have this feeling that there is too much boasting in your mother's book as well as this blog, though your humor does come through much more than your mother's book. And you are right, teenagers are just teenagers so there are certain things that teenagers do that are understandable. Please just do not delete the above post and this one.

    ReplyDelete
  65. For Q & A: There are some scenes in your mother's book that are really harsh--for example, the incident where your mother berates you for not writing a good enough eulogy for your grandmother's funeral. Do you remember this incident the same way? How did you deal with that emotionally at the time? How did it feel to read about it in the book?

    ReplyDelete
  66. Like! Go for it! :)
    (and btw, not embarrassing. I'm sure other normal people would have done the same thing.. actually they probably would have been worse)
    Love reading your posts!

  67. Wow, so many people are reading and commenting on this blog. And I thought David Lat was just being weird.

    ReplyDelete
  68. so, any update on the college decision? come to cambridge!!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Sophia, thank you for sharing your night out with us. I can only imagine the excitement!

    In response to what one of the anonymous posters said above: I don't see anything hypocritical about her last post and this one. Sexy tiger outfits with fishnets and leashes are a far cry from this last photo here. She's wearing a form-fitting dress, but there's nothing wrong with a young girl celebrating her figure with class in a beautiful dress. And there's nothing about the dress, or the last photo, that isn't classy. I also highly doubt she posted that photo to show off her backside.

    The dress might be tighter and sexier than some of us would expect that the Tiger Mother would allow, but that's just us and our preconceptions. Let the girl be!

    I hope that you keep posting without restraint, Sophia!

    ReplyDelete
  70. I love this pose. and don't worry i'm your mom's fan. i do believe in tiger ways and now i'm a better person than before. gogogogo sophia!

    ReplyDelete
  71. I LOVE your dress! So form fitting and fluid indeed.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Questions:

    1.BOYFRIEND (because we're all dying to know): what's he like? when did you guys start dating? what was/is tiger mom's take on all of it?! :p

    2.PUBLICITY: You seem totally comfortable in the limelight, which is capital A Awesome.. What's it been like for the rest of your family?

    3.TRAVEL: I only know two other people who are as well-traveled as you are, and one of them is 42! What has the experience been like for you? Do you feel like you've gained a 'global consciousness' of sorts?

    4.POP CULTURE: What kind of books and movies are you into? Also, now that you can vote, would you reelect president Obama?

    5.FASHION: Who designed that dress? It's totally gorgeous!! Are you into fashion at all? If so, any particular designers?

    6.GIVING BACK: How would you like to made a difference in this world? You're well on your way to building a platform for yourself, and someday you might be in a position where you can truly impact other people's lives.. Who knows? You might end up on the Time 100 list yourself! :)

    7.COLLEGE: Come to Harvard all ready! lol..

    ReplyDelete
  73. The Dress: is it Max Azria for BCBG Or Herve Leger? If that is another brand making a bandage dress PLEASE share with us because it is stunning... Dare I say you should have saved it for prom!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Hey. I agree - can we learn more about this boyfriend? I know you may want to respect his privacy, and that's fair - but perhaps let us in on your mom's reaction, how much you're allowed to see him, etc?

    ReplyDelete
  75. And...I'm officially bored. Congratulations. In a week and a half, you have managed to prove that tiger-parenting does not produce sad, broken children. It produces typical, vain, insipid teenagers who are extremely good at the piano and math. Your mother must be so proud.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Hey Sophia. I'm the same person who posted the hypocritical/judgement comment last night. I'll start out by saying that I completely love your dress, and you looked gorgeous. I'll also add that I too am an 18 year old girl, so I felt like I could be a little more blunt since I somewhat (not completely, of course) am coming from the same place you are, at least as far as teenage judgment is concerned. I'll try to articulate some of the thoughts I had while writing my last comment:

    You have gained the respect of many people over the past few months. But sometimes on this blog it feels like you're trying to prove to us that you're fun, cute, flirty, etc., instead of the boring robot we're "supposed" to have expected you to be. I know that it might partially come across that way because you actually are fun, cute, flirty, etc., and I totally get that. But I want you to know that you don't have to prove anything to us. You are most endearing when you hold your head up and totally own your views. People respect you for the maturity and thoughtfulness with which you've handled the "tiger drama", and because of that you don't need to show us that you're cool/hot/"normal teenager"-- we already know that. I hope I speak for most people when I say that your ideas and insights are more interesting and valuable than your outfits, no matter how cute they may be :]

    I really do respect your family so much and wish all of you the best. Take care!

  77. For the last time (you're running out of time)...go to Yale!

    ReplyDelete
  78. What were the factors that went into consideration when picking the schools you applied to? The one you chose to attend?

    ReplyDelete
  79. heyy you're so lucky you got to go! haha (:

    i just have a few questions...

    1. So I know in the excerpt from your mom's book, she was talking about how she wouldn't let her kids be in a school play...etc. It seems like you didn't mind not being in a play, or anything like that, but if you were actually really interested in theater or somehow wanted to become an actress, would she let you? Or would she just tell you to pick a "more reasonable job"?

    2. and how are you allowed to have a boyfriend ugh what.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Bruno Mars! I'm so jealous! Anyway, was wondering:

    Are there any disciplinary tactics you were raised with that you plan to use/not use when you have kids of your own? I know this might be a while out, but I was kind of curious how your childhood might affect how you raise your own children.

  82. I laughed my butt off reading your post! Be confident that your readers are your fans and love your blog. Your posts are intelligent and fun to read.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Hi Sophia!
    I read a bunch of excerpts from your mom's book and saw a few of her interviews as well - I am a huge fan. I also saw the article you wrote about your mom and as an Asian teen with two tiger parents, I can completely agree with you! People who are not in our position may never understand how loving and silly our parents may be.
    Extend a thanks to your mom (and pat yourself on the back too!) because after hearing what both of you had to say, it really motivated me to work harder. It's nice to be reminded that there are others just like you being raised in a very similar parenting style. Hearing your mom's voice helped me connect to my own mother's opinions and realise that all the things my parents do is truly out of love.
    A few questions, if you wouldn't mind?

    - WOAH. Your mom let you have a boyfriend? How did that come to be?

    - Kyahhh. I can relate - Korean music is a current trend in my life. :P

    - Okay. I'm really feeling the claws of the tigers right now. What to you do on those unbearable days when it's super hard to cope with things? I want to tell my parents that this level of demanding gets to be too much at times, but I don't know how to say this. I need advice from a more experienced cub!

    Thank you so much!
    Please continue writing on this blog. I will look forward to it.

  93. Omg you're hilarious. I hope you don't burn out like most bloggers. Blogging is actually hard work. Dedication blah. I'm rambling randomly but... I WANT TO HAVE A PICTURE WITH BRUNO MARS TOO.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Hi Sophia,

    Great photos, what a awesome experience for you. Your mother really deserves being in the TIME 100. I was one of the early few who loved her excerpt in the WSJ (and also, her entire book) -- I didn't think that she sounded cruel or ruthless or whatever naysayers said; instead, her writing was full of humor and intensity and self-doubt. She sounded human.

    Side note: Back in January I was inspired to write a parody of the WSJ piece, called "Why Chinese Girlfriends Are Superior" (based on certain things I have seen in Shanghai). Link: http://shanghaishiok.com/2011/01/14/why-chinese-girlfriends-are-superior/ I hope you're not ever like this with your boyfriend!

    Best of luck!
