Day 7 In Taipei!!

We are half way our vacation in Taiwan already. We are still debating whether we should go to Huang-lian (East of Taiwan) or Keng-Din (south of Taiwan) for our another get away from Taipei before we heading back to USA less in a week.

The public transmit system is so convient in Taiwan and it only takes 1 1/2 hr. from Taipei to Ping-tong (Keng-Din National Park) by express train. However, the express train tickets is more expensive than the regular train tickets which take us to Huang-lian instead. Hum......gotta think about it harder.
Save time or save money!!!!!! lol

Ok. We have a very busy day today. We shouldn't have visited Zoo since it is so crowded but we did. Well, it is not so bad since kids enjoyed it very much and at least they saw Pandas IRL which we can only see in San Diego zoo.

Escaped monkey.....S/he is now outside the cage...not we are inside the cage....hahahahah....... S/he seems can't find her/his way IN again.


I went to pick up my Stella Luna zebra print flat which DH's first comment is: "WHAT AN UGLY SHOES IT IS"!!!!!!!! LOL
I replied: "What do you know about a pretty pattern of Zebra print!!! They are perfect matching for my evening's outfit."

Stella Luna Zebra print BOW flat.


I am so crazy about BOW!!


Here is a very HOT Taiwan actress, Ging-whua Ying and her co-star.


I went back to Eslite book store again (today is the 4th time). Why? I went to try
Pic. credited to Ms Yaming
設計師川久保玲 (Comme des Garçons)的 clothes again. You know, I am very suprised that the manager is willing to sell me a clothes which is on sale currently for 30% off w/ 50%off I asked for. When I told them that I am only willing to buy it w/ 50% off t, they decided to sell me right away. I was thrilled...and kinda of shocked at the mean time. lol .... Hum....so the economic is that bad? Or it just not the piece many people would appreciate it as I do. Well, now I become hestitate and since I can get it w/ 50% off, I am wanting it to be 60%OFF. HAHA....ok, I am only human!! :P Now you must be curious about the price, right?!! IT is NTD$22680, so w/ 50% off, it is about NTD$11340=USD$348. It is only a "layering" piece which means you can't wear it w/o paring w/ something inside!!!! Well.... I'll tell you what's my decision before going back to USA then.

I meet up w/ my used to be coworkers in the evening and we had a great time chatting. We probably can go on for whole night if not interrupted by kids running around in the restaurant. Great friends are forever!!

Hi Rachel!! Love your black vest with sheer material at the back, and esp. your new Stella Luna zebra flats! I'm going to get your zebra flats too after seeing you wearing it! It's with ribbon so I love it very much! Talk about bad influence...hahahaha! What size did you get for this pair of zebra flats? Coz their largest size is size 10 (i.e. 40) and I'm not sure if I can fit in those with pointed front. BTW, is this pair of shoes comfy?

Thanks so much for your advice on my Chanel Costume jeweleries dilemma. LOL! I think I know what I'll get now after thinking over it again. Hehehehe...

Those food on the table is really yummy! How I miss the food there too! Enjoy the rest of your stay in Taiwan!

Cheers,
Mia

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. …

Kate Spade Store Coupon 20% OFF, DIY of Marni Runway Look!!

I really need to organize my blogs into tags/categories so it will be easier for you girls to navigate on. But right now, thanks to Google for its incredible searching mechanism that I hope you still can find something useful here other than seeing me fancy and vain in the pic. haha....!!!! lol.

This season, there is one more thing in my never-ending clothing wish list: A Cape!!!

I never really want ONE since it never occurs to me that it is a stylish staple in one's wardrobe. :P However, I know I am always enamored by its sophisticated look!! :) Maybe one day I will indulge myself w/ a classic piece like those on the mag.


Aren't those 3 capes classic n' gorgeous!!!!

I want to share a store coupon w/ you girls. This deal is better than its offered 15% off for joining in their email list. You just have to go to "store location" page and print out the coupon and use it in different stores if you have more than ONE item that you like!!! (Please don't tell SAs that …

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…
