Weekend = Shopping, Food, MORE Food and Dessert!

It is almost impossible for me to stay at home and rest on the weekends. I always want to visit somewhere w/ kids, therefore, there is no exception last weekend!!

We took kids to Monterrey Bay Aquarium last Sat. They have sea horse in exhibition. You probably wouldn't believe how colorful, various sizes, and how interesting of forms of sea horses can be until you see them w/ your own eyes.

Yes, those leaves looking creatures are sea horses too!!


I wore pretty casual.....2 extra long shirts, belt, gray-white tights, Boss suede boots, hat, distressed suede messenger bag and of course, Chanel 08 star brooch!!



A boutique called "SLB" on Cannery Row which is just outside the aquarium. They have brands like twelfth street by Cynthia Vincent, Paul & Joe sister, and lots of small brand names. The price is awesome.......(cheap) but equally fabulous!!

I love the rough texture of this dress and its romantic beige color.


Love the two sassy dresses on the display!


We then visited Camel and had a dinner there. This time we didn't go through 17 miles to Camel since they charge about $8 to $10 just for visitors to pass by!! lol




Abby is almost 4!! Yay, start in July, we have 1 birthday boy/girl till September!!


Suddenly this nostalgic look of restaurant set our mood back in Paris.




I never seen this dessert before.....


I think I need a diet starting on Monday!!!

it seemed you guys had a great time!

desert looks yumy.
those dresses are very pretty! did you get one of them? i like floral ones better. the beige one is a little sheer to me, have to wear a slip underneath.
R! My mouth is watering here!! I love desserts! Yup, the ambiance of the restaurant does look like those bistro's in Paris. Can't wait to get there!

You're so lucky to have all sorts of kid-friendly places to go in the US. I would love to bring Mason to the aquarium. The only place we have here is Ocean Park which is not very impressive. Hehehehehe. I guess it will do for now, but when Mason gets older, I'm sure he'd love to see more of the water world.

Oh yes, like Julia, I'm curious too! So did you buy any of the dresses you've shown?

Take care!

Cheers,
Mia/Michelle

*Wave* to Julia!! Sorry I haven't commented on your blog yet. I'll do that later tonight. I think I've missed out a lot! You're doing so good with your blog! :D (I haven't updated mine in ages! hahahahah!)

Hey, girls:
NOp, I didn't get anything in that store....however, I do find a simple, feminine top in a store in Camel. I should find some time to wear it w/ my Linda Loudermilk organic bamboo suit and do the modeling. However, I would say the only big occasion upcoming for us is Ilona & Niel's birthday party and since we are doing outdoor BBQ at the lake, for sure I won't wear suits ..... haha.... I might wear that suit to the zoo in the future as we always visit downtown SF city for its the same route. And that's why you always see me dress "OVERLY" for going to a zoo. hahaha.....

Michelle:
yes, I felt the same thing to my kids. When I visited Taipei, there is not much place to visit for both entertainment and educational purposes for kids, but here is different. So, will you move to USA or Switzerland? :)

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!!

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 …

How Life is ... How You Respond to it?

After almost a year and a half hiatus, I am back writing my blogs again. There are a lot of memorable activities that happened and I recently moved to another house, which I can say without a doubt, is my dream house. It has a nice swimming pool, great landscapes, and a media room in the basement. I always feel unsettled at first when I move into a new place but once I have a vision of how I can make it my home, I'd start the remodel right away. You do everything you can to make yourself "comfortable" in every circumstance, right? 
     I am here at Reno now. Not for skiing, not for gambling, but for my girl's volleyball tournament. A lot of you didn't know I have a daughter who's going to be 13 this year and I am so proud of her unique talents. What do we call them?  iGeneration. The most precious years of their life: teenage years. They are mostly on their own, developing their personality, their existence, and identifying their self-worth. All we paren…
