Grocery Shopping Fun w/ kids!!

This afternoon, my son had his first private music class. Well, actually, he and another boy shares the teacher. We thought it would be more fun for kids to learn music w/ others. Meanwhile, the teacher can pay more attention on our sons when there are only two students in a class.

After class dismissed, we went to a grand opened Japanese supermarket. Kids love to pick candies as treats which I save in my purse when needed. As moms, we bring all kinds of snack, drinks, or diapers, wipes, bottles w/ us. But my kids are not that little anymore and I don't like to carry a big diaper bag w/ me at all. Not even when they are little, in fact, I normally bring as little things as possible in my diaper bag and toss it in my car. So I never spend a dime on a fancy diaper bag. hah......I guess I saved money on that!!

My ODJ!!

hi Rachel - It's amazing how different an outfit looks with the simple change of jacket and shoes. I love the Chanel pumps with the green coat.
how did your son enjoy his music lesson? is he learning a specific instrument?

Rachel - what a fun, casual outfit. I'm very curious about your jumper in your jacket/chiffon shirt and how else you'll be wearing it in the future. Jumpers are pretty big this season but I just don't see myself pulling it off. And I'm changing my mind about the Chanel pumps. You do make it work for your style. It's not uptight and too serious with the way you wear it. Great job.

Hi, Nancy: I hope the weather in LA was not that cold and windy last weekend.
yes, "NOW" I always think if I can have different jackets, heels and bags, I can transform the same outfit to different looks. Accessory does make differences.

My son is still learning rhythm and finger moves (mobility). They learn orders of C,D,E,F,G,A,B on the keyboard. I think he is only 4 1/2, it is too early for him to learn anything specific, except for tempo, and finger/head/read coordination. He loves playing keyboard a lot but the patient threshold is short too. Our class is only 40mins for two boys and I think that's good enough. Besides, we only have class every other week, so practice definitely needed!!

Hey, Betsy: how is your daughter's class doing? Music? sorry I don't remember. I was going to sign up classes for my youngest daughter when signing my son for next tennis class. BUT I don't think I can commit myself every Thur. 9:30 AM for the class yet. .... Well, and since the class ends on June 8th, I am thinking of taking kids back to Taiwan at the end of May. ...... oh, well, ....I think too much. haha...

Oh, why don't you try short jumper. I think they are super comfy and super cute. The drawbacks of wearing jumper is going to bathroom. haha...I gotta tell you that I only went to bathroom twice on Sun. until I went to shower and change in the evening. hahahaha...... I think that jumper I had is just like a cropped pants to me except the fabric is even more relax/soft/unstructured. I just told Nancy that w/ different shoes, bags or accessories, you can transform any look easily. know what, my DH didn't ask me about the Chanel pump when we went to the grocery together yesterday. He must wander the pump looks new to him but the style is like....oh....well, old or not too fancy? haha...anyway, so I guess I can start to wear the pump in front of him now. hehe....

Still proper, Fendi leather skirt!

I worn my Fendi skirt to the city for dinner last night. San Francisco's weather is perfect for wearing leather anything.... It is almost windy all the time around the bay and I find leather is the best shield for blocking out brutal wind in the city. I even like it better than wearing a trench coat.  

Over the years I acquired enough leather jackets, leather mini skirt and leather pants but I'm lacking long leather skirt in my wardrobe. Not only is the fact that a good looking long leather skirt is hard to come by but also a thought that it might be cumbersome to move around in it. Hum..... but you know what, all these uncertainty is redundant the moment I see Fendi 2015 fall/winter runway leather long skirt with pony hair. Ha~ the right moment comes with the right item, I am grabbing it. If you know which one I am talking about, you know I got myself a double-shield wind-proof skirt. lol.... As you can see I'm very into Fendi especially Monster collection at this moment. …

4/12 (Sun.) Day 2 in Vegas w/ Girl Friends!

First of all, I have to thank Irene for coordinating every one's schedule to make this dream trip happen.

On Sunday, we planned to treat ourselves to a beauty spa in Mandalay Bay Hotel. Our appointment at The Bathhouse spa is at 1 PM. But since yesterday we stood up so late, we didn't wake up until 11 AM. However, neither Cathy nor I think we actually fell asleep as we were still so exhausted when waked up. And I am the one who slept the least but got up from the bed the first. I went to gamble alone after clubbing till 5 or 6 in the morning. Well, the time in Vegas is too luxury to stay in bed anyway. lol Pei probably slept not bad at all as I can hear she snores persistently throughout the night. haha............

We each had either Swedish or Deep-muscle massage. I recall my last massage is when I traveled back to Taiwan. My Dad took us family to Thailand and he called for two people to our room. In Thailand, most massagers' body frame are small-built but I am surpri…
