Halls of Babes: Jaylee

- Name: Jaylee
- Age: 22
- Nationality: Japanese, Chinese, Hawaiian, Filipino
- Residence: Bay Area, California
- Apartment107.com Screen Name (Go show her some love in her guestbook!!): Jaylee - Come by and say hi everyone! ;)

Now, you mentioned in the bio that you sent me [that] you were hired to model at a very early age. How old were you when you got your first modeling job, and how was it that you were discovered?

While growing up, my mother was one of the largest and most well-known fashion designer in Hawaii, so naturally she already knew the industry and when I showed an interest in modeling when I was 5, she was excited and got me right in. I did my first shoot with Liberty House, now Macy's in Hawaii.

Could you give a better insight on what it is to be a spokesmodel vs being a model? Is there a definite difference between the two?

Actually, there is a huge difference. Being a spokes model, for me, is a little more nerve racking! I enjoy it because you get to meet a lot of new people and can interact in person. I feel that people really get to know you for you a little better. On the other hand, I also feel a little self-conscious because people can watch my every move, good and bad. Being in front of the camera is fun because I can act goofy or however I feel at the time and not worry about what I give off. If I don't like the picture, I simply won't use it! Also, my favorite part is seeing the final proofs after all the hard work. (It really is work.)

In addition to being a model, you are a well-accomplished Hula and Tahitian dancer with over a decade of experience. Tell us more about that.

Polynesian dancing is sort of my outlet. It's something I do for complete enjoyment. When I'm performing on stage with a smile, that smile is REAL! It comes from inside because I just love it and feel complete. I've been dancing since I was 5 years old and will dance for the rest of my life! We're doing a lot of performances and competitions this year so look out! We're even going to Tahiti next March! I'm really looking forward to that.

You have your own yahoo club (which can be found on her Apartment107.com page). What contents can be found in that club and why should one join the club?

Well, just recently, we've all been migrated to groups (http://www.groups.yahoo.com/group/missjaylee). If you join, you will have access to lots of pictures from different shoots (you can add pix too!), you will be updated from time to time about appearances that I'll be making at shows and whatnot, and you can also post messages for myself as well as all the other members to view. That's actually how I keep in touch with a lot of my fans. I try to check it and respond everyday.

You can also be found featured on several other web sites. What web sites are you currently affiliated with? Could you tell us more about what you do for the web site and what the web site is about?

I've been working very closely with Asianlaah.com the past few months. It's sort of like a marriage where I got there back, and they got mine. I've done a few appearances and shoots with them, and they help me promote as well. We even threw a club event together last month, which turned out well.

You can also see me on Streetdreamsx.com. That is a sight dedicated to models and motorcycles, so if you go to the sight…that's what you'll see! I'm planning on working more with them in the next few months on some projects.

I just shot with Bay-Image.com which is a sight dedicated to models. The photographer is working on a 2003 lingerie calendar, so look out!

I've worked with a bunch more, but the last two that I'll mention right now is Macandbumble.com and zoomxseattle.com. I'm shooting with both of them this month and look forward to working with them.

What projects are you currently working on for 2002?

For 2002, I'm working on a couple calendars and 3 posters, 2 with other models, and one I'm doing solo. They should all be released by May, so stay tuned. If you join my Yahoo group, I'll be announcing the release dates of those.

Is there a personal web site in the works for you in the near future?

Yes, it should be released before this summer as well. You'll be the first I contact!

What is your most attractive [physical] feature and why?

Most girls would be modest and say…"my mind." Come on now…keep it real! Is that really the first thing people see? NOPE! I would say…either my eyes or my tummy. My eyes, because I've been told that they are hypnotic and that's what people notice first. My tummy because…sheesh, I work out 5 days a week, it better be off the hook!

What is your best character trait and why?

I'm a very down-to-earth type of girl. People are surprised that I'm not one of those big headed stuck up models. C'mon, we're all people now, and I'm very approachable if you wanna say what's up. I'm also real. I don't have time to waste beating around the bush, just tell it like it is, and if people can't accept that, then that's on them.

What has been your inspiration in your life, both in your modeling career and outside of your modeling career?

My inspiration in life? One word…MONEY! I know, it sounds shallow and whatnot, but that's what inspires me to go to school, and get up to go to work every morning. I enjoy the nicer things in life, and don't ever want to have to rely on someone to give those things to me. I will be happy to know that everything I have, I've worked for and got by myself.

What have been some of the worst pick up lines guys have tried to use on you at any event where you have modeled?

Oh man! "Can you please kiss me on the cheek? I promise never to wash it ever again!" Okay, for one, no…and do you think the thought of someone not washing their face ever again is a turn on? Two words for you…BAD HYGENE! Some others are…"Can I have your phone #? It's for my 10 year old son." "Wow, you look like an Asian Jennifer Lopez!" (yah, okay!)

What has been one of your most embarrassing moments?

Hmmm…I don't really get embarrassed (because I don't really care), so this is a hard one. Oh okay, I got it. Me and my girls went out to eat at this place EVERYONE goes to after the club. We were all a bit buzzed still, and I felt yucky, so I unzipped my pants so I wouldn't feel so restricted. I was sitting at the table, so no one could see. As we were getting up to leave, the electricity went out, so I left my pants unzipped when we were going to pay, because no one could see, plus I was still buzzed, and you tend not to care so much. While waiting in line, the electricity went back on, and my girl that was across the room, was like "Aye! You're pants are unzipped and your panties are showing!" as she pointed at me, so of course every one looked. Of course I played it off like I don't care, but I think my cheeks still turned red.

What have been some of your most memorable?

I guess one would be my Cotillion. It was so perfect, and sort of like "my night". I couldn't have asked for a more special 18th b-day. Another was when we competed for Tahitian in Kauai. It was so fun and beautiful there! And winning helped also. And believe it or not, my girls and I are hitting up the clubs every weekend, but each time is memorable for me!

Aside from modeling, what other professional goals do you have or [what] careers do you wish to venture into?

I plan on graduating with my BA in business/ investment financing soon. I would like to be a personal banker for an investment company. I'm really good with money, and like dealing with it. Making a lot of it sounds good too!

What advice would you give out to your female fans who want to become models themselves?

Do your thing ladies! It's a lot of fun and you get to meet lots of interesting people and travel. At the end, when you get to see nice pictures of yourself, all the effort is worth it. Just remember to only do what you're comfortable with, because if not, you will regret it later.

Before we conclude this interview, what events are you planning to attend in 2002 so that your fans may come and see you in person?

Well…*sigh* there are MANY events coming up, especially in April. Hot Import Days in San Mateo on April 27th, Import Auto Vibe at the Cow Palace on April 6th, Model Expo in San Francisco on the 13th of April and the IREV show in Anaheim on May 25th. After that, I hope to relax a bit, but you never know!

Thank you for your time. Do you have any final thoughts?

I just want to say thank you to all my fans. I love meeting you and hearing from you! You guys make me laugh… hehe! Also, thanks to everyone that's had my back from Day ONE. You know who you are, and I don't take it for granted. That's about it, so to all you readers, I hope to meet you guys in the future! Don't forget to smile and stay drama free!

The hotties are back! Again the fellas (and Liz) @ ModelExpoEvents (ME2) hosted another Asian Model Expo held this year at the Long Beach Marriott. Over 50 models filled a room the size of your house, so there was more eye candy around than you could handle.

Kaila Yu was on hand signing her new CD Single, last year’s favorite model contest winner Dee came out, Diana Le, Flo Jalin, Rowena Galam, Nikki Cash, and singer sensation Marie Serina were just a few of the faces that attended the event.

So if you missed out on this year’s event, better keep an eye out for the next one. We’ll keep you posted on event location and schedule so you can check out all the fine Asian models that always attend this show. I know I will…

808 XSpeedition

March 9, 2002 The 808 XSpeedition made its way to Hawaii Raceway Park for a day of high speed drifing and all out motorcycle stunts. The Excitement was high as hundreds of spectators crammed through the gates of HRP to catch a glimpse of daring riders and drifters making their way through 2 seperate road courses. On one side of the track, a multiple turn road course challenged the skills of our drifters. While on the other side a quarter mile straightaway was open for bikes to let loose a variety of wheelies and stunts and for drifters to choku-dori (sway) down the straight.

Adding to the day's activities were the DJs from Sounds & Grooves, The Most Hated motorcycle club, Revolution Motorsports, Honolulu Wireless, and Auto Chem Systems. Prizes for the riders and drivers were generously provided by Live Sockets Entertainment, Auto Chem Systems, and Dave & Busters Honolulu.

At the end of the day, the famous Drift Session Drift Competition allowed drivers to battle for their share of prizes and a shot at the title of Drift Session Champion. Competition was fierce as drivers punished their vehicles through high speed, wheel demolishing runs through the road course. In the end, it was veteran drifter Ross Petty (just back from Okinawa) piloting his S13 style 240sx to victory.

For those of you who missed the excitment of the 808 XSpeedition, don't worry because there's two more scheduled this year: July 13 and November 9. And don't forget that the Drift Session resumes its regular insanity on the second Saturday of every month. See you next month on April 13 at Hawaii Raceway Park. Gates open at 10 am.

Drift Competition Results:
1 Ross Petty (S13 Nissan 240sx)
2 Chris Kam (Chevy Camaro)
3 Aaron Kikkawa (S13 Nissan 240sx)
4 Pedro Dominon (Toyota Corolla GTS)
5 Braden Lee (S14 Nissan 240sx)
6 Denny Cabal (180 Nissan 240sx)
7 Andrew Davison (Mazda Miata)
8 Justin Kikkawa (Toyota Corolla GTS)

10 Edward Kubo (Toyota Corolla GTS)
11 Ian Correia (Toyota Corolla GTS)

IDRC Firebird Nationals

(PHOENIX, AZ) After a record-setting season opener at Los Angeles County Raceway (over 15,000 in attendance), the IDRC and event title sponsor BFGoodrich Tires rolled into Firebird International Raceway on March 16th and 17th to deliver the IDRC's famous BIG SHOW! The biggest crowds ever gathered for a sport compact event in the state of Arizona were treated to the IDRC's second-to-none world championship drag racing, the Meguiar's Movement One car show, the SR-1 Team Drag Challenge presented by Super Street and the 2002 IDRC Starter Girls Verena Mei and Flo Jalin.

The IDRC experience was in full effect as Adam Saruwatari and the Venom Tacoma, now driven by chassis builder Grant Downing, squared off in the final round of Importdrag.com Pro Class competition. Adam took a holeshot advantage to the 1000-foot mark where the Venom Tacoma make its strike to the finish line first. Both cars running side by side seven-second times. Adam set a new personal best of 7.771 at 171.84 mph while securing enough points to take the Pro class lead in the IDRC's $186,000 national and western divisional championships.

The Apex Integration Outlaw Class had the crowd on its feet after Steph met Stephanie for the first time in competition. The fastest front-wheel-drive in the world faced the fastest female in all of import and sport compact drag racing during qualifying. The result of this practice run was a victory for Steph, but no one would know what GM Racing would have in store for the competition on Sunday. In Sunday action, Stephanie met Ron Lummus in his wicked turbo bug. Ron and Steph left the start at the same time, but Ron would edge out Stephanie with a 8.85 to her 8.89. This put Ron against Steph for the final. Steph would get the win as Ron would break on the line. Still, the semifinal finish was enough for Ron to take the Outlaw class lead in the IDRC's $186,000 national and western divisional championships

In Quick Class action, the crowd was treated to no less than four different 9-second rockets. Mike Laskey proved his 9-second timeslips weren't a fluke at LACR as he blasted to 9.40s. Mike Carl made the trek from Washington to run 9.80s while Venom and Jojo battled for the number one position with 9.36 and 9.13 elapsed times, respectively. In the final Jojo would face Bruce Mortensen and the Venom Civic. A problem at the line would cause a repeat result of LACR. Jojo wins and Jojo takes a commanding lead in the c

At the season opener, a pack of Bugs slaughtered the Hondas left and right. After a meeting of all of the IDRC's All-Motor racers, the IDRC developed a rule revision to level the field. Did it work? Most definitely. Now, six racers were into the 10s with three of them being Honda and three being VWs. Both the semifinal and the final would pair VWs against Hondas. All-Motor National Class elapsed time and mph record holder Shawn Geers would be upset by Bisi Ezerioha in the quarterfinal round. Bisi would also be the first single-cam Honda into the 10s. The VW of Doug Gonzalez would meet Erick Aguilar's Civic in the final. During Saturday's qualifying Erick's Honda became the quickest and fastest All-Motor Honda in the world. Now, running a best of 10.68 he would face the veteran Gonzalez who was running 10.71s. When the light turned green, Erick got the holeshot and Doug dropped the ring and pinion. Chalk up one for the Honda camp. The result of this event has Shawn Geers in the lead by just two points in the IDRC's $186,000 All-Motor class national and western divisional championships

In the BFGoodrich Tires Street Class, Ari Yallon beat out the hard-charging Ryan Carwin and his Celica. Ari also managed this victory on a set of BFGoodrich G-Force T/A Drag Radial tires. This accomplishment puts Ari in the running for the BFG Three-for-Three challenge. If Ari secures victories in this class at the BFGoodrich Tires IDRC Summer Slam Nationals and the BFGoodrich Tires Compact Car Invasion, the Ari will be presented a $10,000 bonus from BFGoodrich Tires. Ari also has a commanding lead in the IDRC's $186,000 Street class national and western divisional championships

The SR-1 Team drag challenge presented by Super Street was won by Vicious Racing. The IDRC presented the team with $1000 for the being the quickest crew in Arizona.

Regarding the event, IDRC National Director Michael Ferrara said, "We never expected the Arizona market to take off so quickly. With planned promotions through Arizona Mills, local car dealerships and more in store for our October 12th and 13th event in Phoenix, we are expected the crowd and racer participation to double. Firebird International Raceway will soon day hold our biggest events in the West. We would really like to thank all of the racers, fans, media, sponsor and tracks continuing to make IDRC number one in all categories."

The IDRC's next stop will be the IDRC Lone Star Nationals at River City Raceway in San Antonio, Texas. This is the track that has set more world records than any other in the IDRC schedule. All of the top racers have already confirmed appearances and the event is looking to bring over 10,000 to Texas to establish a new state record for events. Find out more at www.importdrag.com.

Ninja Scroll the Live Action Movie

(Santa Monica, CA)— Threshold Entertainment today announced its acquisition of “Ninja Scroll” from leading Japanese anime studio Madhouse. The producers of the $4 billion Mortal Kombat feature film franchise have tagged the property as its next blockbuster martial arts franchise. Threshold plans to produce “Ninja Scroll” in all media including television, live stage tours, video games, music and more. The Multimedia and Intellectual Property Management giant, is currently developing the $60 million effects laden live-action samurai feature film based on the 1994 blockbuster Anime movie. This acquisition marks one of many properties that Threshold plans to acquire over the next six months and turn into global mainstream entertainment as part of its overall buying strategy.

Created by award-winning action director Kawajiri Yoshiaki (Vampire Hunter D, Demon City), “Ninja Scroll” is considered to be the yardstick by which all other martial arts sword-fighting action anime is measured. Set in feudal Japan, the sword and sorcery epic follows the adventures of Jubei, a ninja mercenary, who is thrust into the middle of a war when the entire population of a small village is wiped out by a mysterious plague. A tragic love story ensues with Jubei’s reluctant rescue of a beautiful and cursed ninja girl as fate brings them together to fight a war with the eight devils of Kimon and overthrow the Shogun government.

“We’re always looking to acquire extraordinary properties with tremendous growth potential. Ninja Scroll has all of the elements for a multi billion dollar entertainment franchise,” said Larry Kasanoff, chairman and CEO of Threshold Entertainment. He added, "It’s wild, sexy and innovative and one of the coolest martial arts brands in the world.”

Threshold revolutionized the feature film world when it became the first company to successfully translate a videogame property, Mortal Kombat, into a $4 billion blockbuster feature film franchise. The company has produced – and made the brand number one - in every medium in the world, including two blockbuster feature films, a TV series and Radio City Music Hall Live Stage show. It is now the most recognized martial arts brand the fifth largest entertainment property in the world, just behind Star Wars and Batman.

“Though anime was originally born in America, it has had its own evolution in Japan and become a part of Japanese culture. Given my long career running one of the most progressive anime production companies in Japan, I was very moved when Threshold made their first offer on Ninja Scroll. I felt anime had finally evolved into something American audiences would find entertaining. I am thrilled to see anime become a mutual language to bridge our cultures and work toward the same goals,” said Maruyama-San, founder and President of Madhouse.

Threshold Entertainment CIO, Joshua Wexler represented his company in the transaction. Hikaru Sasahara of Digital Manga Inc. and Robert K. Yasui of Yasui & Carroll negotiated the deal on behalf of Madhouse.

Threshold Entertainment’s groundbreaking worldwide digital animation and effects subsidiary, Threshold Digital Research Labs (TDRL), will supervise the show’s visual FX. Threshold’s other subsidiary, Threshold.TV will create and manage the online presence of the brand at www.ninjascroll.com.

Kasanoff will produce with Threshold’s Alison Savitch, George Johnsen and Joshua Wexler. Hikaru Sasahara will serve as co-producer.

Houston Import Revolution

Gallery Page 1 |

We packed our bags and hopped on a plane as the Apartment 107 staff traveled all the way to Houston, Texas for the Inaugural Import Revolution. To make it short, we loved everything there...the scene, the cars, the people, the Texas BBQ, etc.

The Reliant Center was home to the first ever Import Revolution which kicks off a 8 show tour of the United States and Canada. Four rooms were filled with cars as people packed the venue to come check out the rides and the girls.

Import Revolution models were on hand as many of the Cali girls joined the Texas local girls in the model expo booth. This area was so jam packed you needed to stand on a chair to get a clear view of the girls.

Natasha Yi was in attendance and drew a small mob of men and women. Jasmine Fox Li was on hand as one of the official IRev girls. Local hotties Tila Nguyen and Tyra Leang were among many other fine beauties.

This was a great experience for our first show outside of Cali. Don't miss Apartment 107 as we tour the US and Canada for our 2002 North American tour.

Thanks to all the people who helped out and showed us great hospitality. Vision staff, Rae and Wayne, Andy from Hyper, Joe from Showtime, Thai from Industry Sounds, Chris and Andy from M&N, and all the other pimps and players out there. See you next time when we're in the Lone Star state...Yeehaw!

Fluidyne hits IDRC

FLUIDYNE High Performance is The Official Competition Radiator of the IDRC For 2002. FLUIDYNE produces High-Performance Racing Radiators For Acura, Honda, Mazda, Toyota and Mitsubishi

Pound for pound, the IDRC’s Championship drag race series features some of the most powerful gasoline and alcohol-burning engines in the world. 700-plus horsepower four-cylinder and 1400-horsepower six-cylinder engines push door slammers down the quarter-mile in a fraction over seven seconds at every IDRC national event. Producing over 400 horsepower per liter, these engines push all systems to the limit. Being on the ragged edge of reliability, output levels exceed the abilities of OEM and many aftermarket radiators to keep the engine cool under extreme conditions. Cooling an engine producing these incredible amounts of power is a major challenge for many teams.

When heat is the problem, FLUIDYNE High Performance is the solution. FLUIDYNE’s racing and high-performance aluminum radiators have provided the solution for the racers of NASCAR Winston Cup, Busch Grand National, Craftsman Truck, Toyota Atlantic teams and the IROC series for years. Now, FLUIDYNE High Performance is proud to announce its marketing alliance with the IDRC for racers of imports and sport compacts. For 2002, FLUIDYNE will be the Official Competition Radiator of the IDRC. FLUIDYNE’s brand presence to this new market will be increased as an element in all forms of the IDRC’s national and regional print advertising and event promotion materials. This includes the IDRC’s solid advertising schedule in Sport Compact Car, Import Tuner and Turbo & High-Tech Performance magazines. Additionally, event banners and P/A announcements will accompany a presence on the manufacturer’s midway at IDRC events. With a direct event presence, FLUIDYNE High Performance will gather end-user feedback to spur product development and establish additional dealers.

FLUIDYNE High Performance targets popular high performance after-market platforms with all-aluminum "Direct Fit" radiators and oil coolers. Current “direct-fit” import radiator applications include ’90-’00 Acura Integra, ’88-00 Honda Civic/CRX, ’94-’97 Honda Accord, ’86-’95 Mazda RX-7, ’90-’99 Mitsubishi Eclipse and ’86-’98 Toyota Supra.

FLUIDYNE is a subsidiary of Thermal Dynamics Corporation (TDC), which is located in Ontario, California. FLUIDYNE High Performance is headquartered in Mooresville, North Carolina and has a facility in Ontario, California as well.

Michelle Branch

Pop music has a new starlet, and her name is Michelle Branch. For those of you who don't know who Ms. Branch is, perhaps you have heard her song "Everywhere" which peaked at #5 on the U.S. pop charts and her newest single "All You Wanted" is a certified #1 hit video on MTV's Total Request Live. Michelle started singing at the age of 3 when she would record Beatles songs such as "Ticket To Ride" on tape and send it to her grandma. Her biggest life changing event that got her musical dreams started was seeing a New Kids on the Block concert, where she saw their music "touching other people." It was also where she decided that she too wanted to be a pop star.

Michelle started vocal lessons at the young age of 8 at Northern Arizona University, and later moved to Sedona, AZ to continue her lessons. She got her first guitar at the age of 14. In April of 2000, she recorded her first indie album "Broken Bracelet" that she sold at small shows where she performed. Michelle later went on to open for Hanson where Maverick Record executive took notice and signed her.

In 2001 she recorded her first major label album "The Spirit Room." She is praised for her music not only because she writes and plays her own songs, but because it does not have the prefabricated pop package that usually ensues...this girl is the real deal musically.
