Mommies fun time w/o Going To New York's Fashion Week!!

My mommy friend, Sally and I took kids to Academy of Science Museum in SF today. She planned a vacation w/ family in Tahoe this whole week but the trip is canceled at the last min. :( A real bummer!!

Sally is a working mom. And you know, when you are in a "vacation mode", you never wanted to go back to work even you end of going nowhere!!! haha....

Sally and her pretty daughter.

So, as a stay-home mom, me, I always know where to enjoy a day out w/ kids when my working mommy friends are calling me!!! :)

Renee, just another fabulous mommy friend, who lives in the SF city. She just moved back here from New York and already eagerly going back to work again!! lol We met her at the dim sum restaurant this noon and talked about yet another bummer of knowing that we can't make it to this year's New York's fashion party on Sept. 10th , shopping till 11 PM, having block party on the street............ all sort of things..... *&%$#%^&%$#

Renee is a total New Yorker look today!!

Bag: Jane August

Boots: Marvell

Ok, again, we are moms!! No matter how much we are into "fashion", kids are still our first priority!!!!

Last year, my daughter wrote me a card w/ things she likes to do w/ me, here is one: I like going to SF city to shop w/ my mom!! Then my friend, Yu, saw the card and told me that I should ask my daughter change SF city to be "Great mall" or "Gilroy" or even "NM last-call" just so the teachers won't assume that I am a shop-all-the-time in all-the-fancy-department stores mom. hahaha....

After lunch, we arrived at the museum around 3 PM. Again, you don't need a whole day planned for kids. Just like us, having a nice lunch outside the museum, catching up w/ friends and back, kids will appreciate the quality time of 1 to 1 hr. half in the museum.

1. TOP:

Hello, I just waked up from my little nap in the car.. :P

SO I still can't tell it is a male or female??!! A twig or a leaf.... maybe more like a twig then?

This is a Toad. But it really looks like a frog got smashed dead there. haha..

That's a dwarf cuttlefish!!

This is not a bench we are sitting on, it is in fact a see-saw.

Sally w/ her kids at the other side.

It was 6:30 PM when we arrived home. DH took Abby to her swimming class and I went to my routinely Power Yoga class. As for my son, Niel, he felt so left out today since he had to go to school. :P Ok, son, I will make it up to you in the future, mom promise!!!!

Tomorrow is another big day ahead!!! :)

Rachel - I was trying to find the Zara shirt dress that you mentioned but the layering has really gotten me slightly lost. :P But I still like the outfit regardless, esp now that the weather in SF city is cool enough for some fun tights.

Looks like you are having a wonderful time with the girls these days, both mommies and your daughters. I had to chuckle at Abby's statement on enjoying her time with mommy. She's getting her training young and I have no doubt she will have a really solid sense of individual style when she gets older.

When's Izy coming to town? I might miss her now since DH and I are taking off on our trip tomorrow. Oh well, we'll have to meet next time she is in town.

too bad, Isabel won't be here until next Mon. for a whole week. .... yet another of another bummer!! haha..

You guys have fun and make sure you check out Hermes' boutique if you can....better yet, score one Birkin back then. haha...

You know, I start thinking that our SAs in Hermes' in SF city are really working hard for their commission...... Isabel didn't get anything thing major before she scores 2 Birkins for her relatives the past 2 or 3 month while Yu told me that we have to build a "relationship" w/ a SA to get her to keep eyes on the Birkin we want...well......... well...well....

Oh, Isabel likes my Chloe sunglasses so we might end off having the same one ...then we will be sunglasses quadruple including Cathy and Yu. hahahaha...

OH, Betsy: I mean she likes the one I lost and I told her if she really is going to buy 2 then. I want it BACK!!! :) It is cheaper buying online and we can save 1 shipping. :)

i just took my daughter to the academy on monday! that place is really fun. I love your bag, it goes with a lot of your outfits, who would of thought orange can be so versatile? It seems really easy to score birkins in SF these days. the past few times I went they always have a few in stock. I am waiting for a red one in 30cm :)
Hi Rachel!! Looks like you guys had a lot of fun! I can't help noticing.....does Abby like polka dots very much? Love her look! So Japaneses...hehehe! Kawaii neh! And Ilona is getting prettier each cute and chubby, love her sparkling eyes... :D And I love Abby's owl shirt! You know how much I like owls!! Hehehehe! I have a similar sequined one from Mango which I'm going to post on my reveal thread tomorrow. :D you're going to buy-back your Chloe sunnies? Did you try on the BVs? Anyway, Chloe sunnies are nice so get them while you still can.

Hi, dos: really? Is it easier now? You know, I think it has been at least 5 mon. since the last time I visited Hermes since I don't want cost an arm and a leg to build up a relationship first then to get a Birkin. It really is not economical...but it is really a great news that you said they always have some stocks!! :) hum...I guess I might get a Birkin by the end of this year. ..haha..

Hi Rachel,

I love your American Apparel pink swirl blue hosiery . It is so cute and i really want one like that. :)

Your friend Sally and her daughter looks so much alike. Her daughter is so beautiful. She has beautiful eyes and smile just like her mother. :)

Look like you guys had so much fun. I've been to SF 3 times but never get the chance to visit the zoo. It is hard since i'm not familiar with the place.

You're looking great as always and I just don't know how you did it with 3 kids. :)

Take care Rachel.

Hi, Mia:

how are you? I thought you are in Pairs already.....

Abby really loves polka dots and she always pick up clothes/things w/ polka dots design.... I told her that I bought her other clothes that she needs to rotate wearing them...well....oh, well...

yeh, I am thinking of that since Isabel tried that and she likes the lightweight of that sunglasses too. I don't have time to try out anything yet since I have acting class on Sat. and I always drive right back after class cause' I think DH is great already for taking care of kids all alone on Sat. morning till 3 or 4 PM. I think I might want to take a week day to drive to SF city next week just to try out new stuff then. :)

Hi, Sweetberry:
Sure, you are welcome. I hope you do get your sexy Chanel swimming suit soon. I never thought of getting one from Chanel...hum.......... hum..... haha...

YOu know, I think I am really enjoy posting everything about me, my friends, is not just fun but also an encouragement to myself and even virtual friends like you!!! :) (Well, although sometimes my friends would not want to be IN MY BLOG but well, I told them I always post the prettiest shot of them so they are willing to let me take pic. w/o faces. hahah....)

Oh, that just remind me that I found that I like shooting the camera for my classmate in my acting class. I think I know how to set the ankle/lights and find the best feature out of people. :) OH, I can be a camera man!! :P

Hi, Kristy:
Thanks, girl. You know, I am thinking of getting a matching black Batucada necklace for the black bracelet I kept...just so I have the whole look. haha...
I don't think I need to tell my friends about comments you made here. They all read my blog routinely too. haha...

Oh, the hosiery, I think you can find that in AA store and it is really interesting one. I got compliment from that almost every time I wore. :)

Kristy, you should visit SF during summer when we have all the activities going on there.... even the zoo has more animals or creatures during summer..haha... Oh, the science museum is really something, I always find new creatures every time we visit. Well...but if you are not really into those creatures, it would be a little boring...I know I don't really like it before I am married w/ kids. hahah...

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. …

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…
