Birthday Gift from My Dearest Darling!! Oh, Hermes!!

Oh, Hermes!! Oh, my love!!

I mean both my DH and Hermes!! :P

My SA insists me saying nothing about this beauty on the website. And I promised her!!

The truth is the picture is worth more than a thousand words, let me share my ultimate excitement silently!!

A little extra business for my SA goes a long way for our relationship!!

Hermes white leather on golden studded cuff can go w/ my Chanel matte white reissue 227

That's my 09 multicolored hot air balloon print Hermes scarf

The cuff can also go w/ my 35cm Gris Tourterelle Hermes Togo Birkin!!!

I almost faint when I received it!! I believe every rookie of Hermes feels the same as I do!! hahah....

I think I catch the color very true! (even it is indoor at my house at night as you can tell)

Ta da~! My newest addition to my little luxury collection!!
Again, 35cm Gris Tourterelle Hermes Togo Birkin!

Birthday gifts!! For Me and For My Girl Friend!!

It is hard!

It is sometimes became a headache to pick up a perfect gift for friends.

First thing is "what does s/he want?" Then, the budget, the style, the color,..... or maybe the budget goes first it will be much easier?!! I don't know. We are all moms, we constantly struggle between buying things for "practical" or for "looks". lol

I own my friend, Yu, a birthday gift. So today is the day that I thought I had to give Yu her B-day gift. As for the hand-made birthday card, I asked her for a rain check till this Christmas!! haha...... Birthday card + Christmas card!!!! My, did I say Christmas already!!!?

The gift I prepared turns out not that perfect after receiving it so I returned it. And that just throws me back to the same dilemma "what else she likes"???!! I walked in a store which we all shopped there before this morning, and just when I was stuck at whether a boyfriend cardigan or a pair of leggings meet Yu's taste/likes the best, I found a perfect pair of SHOES!!! I saw a customer pick them up in the store, and I also recall that Yu wants to check out those shoes just recently while they are available for a while already. :) The brand is MinneTonka made in Minnesota!!

Wouldn't you know it, I bought 2 of them!!! One for myself and the other one is for Yu. Yah!!! UGG never gets my attention, but this pair sure is a great substitution to warm up my feet in the winter. I hope she will like it too!!

w/ flash!!
Size 8 and 9. (We go up half size for thicker socks in the winter!)

w/o flash.

More true to the color: Dusty brown!!!!

I think my Pink pants goes w/ the brown boots.

Those are little accouterments I received from Yu, Pei and Cathy for my birthday gifts. The sexy knee high socks is from Yu who bought from Germany. I wore them the past couple days except the socks......the weather is not cold enough!! :)

There are pretty pattern on the socks.

Flying lizard design turquoise/golden disc necklace is from Cathy.

Great thing about this harem pants is its super long tapered legs which can be tucked underneath my ankle to elongate the look of my legs even more!! :)

Giorgio Armani Foundation.

My girl friends throw me a birthday party at xanh restaurant in Mt. View last Friday night. It was a last min. change of plan from going to SF city to celebrate on Sat. night originally. I guess I was aware of my acting class at SF city at 11 Am so I suddenly lost the interest of finding an outfit on Friday night. I don't quite satisfied what I had wore on Friday night but just think I can do better. :P

I am not sure if Yu feels the same thing since she didn't even have much make-ups on at that night. lol While Pei is looking pretty in her little dress I realized the pic. all came out funny since 3 of us had tremendous different looks w/ our make-ups. It is not that we don't look good, it is just seeing me did a perfect make-ups, Yu had her make-ups since that morning, and Pei's face is all red because of the cocktail she consumed when Yu and I arrived at the restaurant. hahahaha.....

So skip our pretty funny pic. here I'd love to share Giorgio Armani Foundation and Laura Mercier tinted moisture I used on that night. I love how perfect coverage the foundation gave me as well as the silkiness/lightness I blend it w/ Laura Mercier's moisture.

Giorgio Armani designer shaping cream foundation spf 20 $65

Laura Mercier

Tinted Moisturizer - Oil Free $42

I applied MAC eye shadow in pearl around the corner of my tear gland!

If I don't thin out the Giorgio foundation, the look will be too matte which I hated!!



Xhan restaurant serves really tasty Vietnamese food but I can't seem to remember the name of the dishes we ordered. Guess I drank too fast of my raspberry Ocho cocktail. :)

We visited Renee at SF city on Saturday. We had such a great time eating oyster raw and grilled right from the sea!! :)

We drove to SF city at 10 AM and had brunch at NM's cafe. When finally we get in touch w/ Renee it is almost 2 PM. Renee suggested us visiting Stinson beach where we can eat the freshest oysters. It is about 1 hr. and half north Sausalito city where has the most incredible Pacific ocean view.

We have to drive zigzag along the mountain and by the ocean. I almost felt the nausea if I didn't look ahead. *<*

Yah!!!! Here we are!!
Kids all love beach!

First, we sample some raw, they are so fishy!!!!

We sort of went there impromptu so we didn't bring any snack, drinks, or even tools when we really need some lime, hot sauce, oyster knife, garlic, soda.......etc. to enjoy the oysters "gracefully" and to ease the aversion to fishy smell. :P Fortunately, the owner loaned us the oyster knife which he sells for $15 to the customers *ouch*, hot sauce for $1.5, cloth (gloves works better though) and lime which we can't return. I guess we must look rookie to him of eating oysters right out of the shell by ourselves!!! lol haha........

Well, DH is really not so adventurous of eating them raw, so we decided to grill our 2 dozen oysters. :) I bought some charcoal and started this unforgettable experience of grilling oysters by the ocean.

Renee really enjoys the raw oysters though.

Renee's DH works hard for his treats!! haha...

You just need to find a crease of the shell and work your knife into it to open! :)
FYI: I am quite good at cracking the oyster open.

I had to dash lots of hot sauce and lime juice to enjoy it.

Niel enjoys the grilled oyster + lime juice so much and I am surprised that he had almost 3 oysters. :)

On the way home, we planned to eat at Point Reyes but all the restaurants (only couples there) are booked..... so we have to drive back to China town in SF city to have a real dinner.

Can you tell those are real TIES on the car!!!!!

This is a very nice restaurant but all booked!! :(

Cute sign!

The sunset along the Pacific ocean.

The best Chinese restaurant in China Town.

A teaser!

It was already 11 PM after driving ourselves home!

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.

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!!! :)
