AceShowbiz - Rapper-turned-actress Awkwafina is living out her bulk buying dreams after leaving her native New York City and relocating to Los Angeles.
The star, real name Nora Lum, finally decided to move out of her cramped and pricey Brooklyn apartment following the huge success of "Ocean's 8" and "Crazy Rich Asians", and now she has a car and the space to load up on household goods she had long dreamed about while residing on America's East Coast.
"I just moved to Los Angeles," she told Elle.com. "My lease was coming to an end so it really came down to whether I wanted to dish out $8,000 a month for a 100-square-foot apartment or just move to Los Angeles. I've never left New York before but sometimes, you just gotta get out..."
"My dream has always been to go to (superstore) Target and buy heavy things, like laundry detergent or something, and all I gotta do is put it in my car, drive home and just bring it in the house. That doesn't happen in New York, at all. That's my fantasy and in Los Angeles, I get to do that."
