Tiger Cub Sophia Chua-Rubenfeld was out on a weekday night (!!!) and then wrote about the experience on her blog, “new tiger in town.”
The Chua-Rubenfelds were invited to the Time 100 cocktail hour in New York City Monday night. Tiger Mom Amy Chua — of “Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother” fame — was recently named one of Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people of the year. Her memoir describes her parental transformation from a no-nonsense stereotypical Asian mother to one who (occasionally) allows her daughters to have sleepovers and attend parties on weeknights.
Chua-Rubenfeld detailed the event on her blog, where she described her excitement at meeting celebrities such as Bruno Mars and Mark Wahlberg.
“I think the argument was, ‘they could have been eaten by jungle cats, at the very least let them party!'” she wrote of the reason she and her sister were invited to the party. “So there we were: two relatively unknown and decidedly non-influential kids wandering around trailblazers and innovators… 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!!”
Last week, Chua-Rubenfeld blogged about the photoshoot her family did for Time Magazine, which featured some real tigers. See photos here.
