Life Before Husband!!

I don't know why Cathy look so happy there... almost silly to me!! ^O^

Ha~ Nothing serious w/ that title. It supposes to be
A day of a stay-home mom before her husband comes home! I never like routine, so if my friends ask me what I'd do tomorrow, I never really give them a plan!! Spontaneous is my thing!! ^O^

Stay-home moms' life in America is typically spending w/ friends, and kids (if not at school) during the day until husbands off from their work.

Being a Stay-home mom is not easy as we have to manage almost everything precisely.
Driving between Kids' extra-curricular activities, or classes, meeting w/ friends, staying home for kid's nap or cleaning the house (like I don't have a house cleaning lady comes by regularly), surfing the Internet or watching a movie and of course, doing grocery shopping. In the afternoon, the schedule normally is cooking, feeding, and bathing kids, then ..... if you are a lucky wife, your husband would share some house chores after he got home!!!!!

You see, if a stay-home mom can manage all these things into a morning or a day, that's pretty impressive, aren't we?!! ^O^

But you might say: That just sound "boring", right??!! Actually it is not, at least not for most mommy friends I know.

You know friends are so important, especially friends who are in a marriage and who also then has children. There is a long way to go in a marriage w/ children involved. We encourage each other, give all sorts of advice to each other (even sometimes we don't want any advice, but listening would never hurt, right?!!), share husband n' wife thing together, and gossip about Mother-in-law issue whenever we needed to vent!! Comparing is not really a good thing but certainly is not a bad thing neither!!
:P "True Friends are Forever!"


We moms went back to Filoli Garden on Thursday together and enjoyed the early summer.

I look very on Thursday!

ON me: SR pour H&M pink baby-doll dress, Agnes' b Sport green leggings, Neil Barrett black peasant top, Lanvin calf skin gemstone flat, Anthropologies bought ribbon/pearls necklace, Lilith polka dot cotton bag.

I wrapped another necklace around the roses on my dress....
Melody says that I look like I am ready for a banquet w/ the flower...and I do also look like I am THE bride!! hhaa..

I couldn't remember what Yu n' I were talking about....or quarreling about...but no matter what it is, friends are forever!!! :)

I am pretty sure Cathy had Ecstasy that morning for "that look of ecstasy on her face"!!!!! ^O^

The day w/o make-ups. (Actually, yu and I just finished two hours Yoga and Piyo Dancing in the morning.)

On Yu: Wilfred cropped top, harem pants, splash patterned leggings, Y-3 sneakers, some necklace, and j crew fringe bag.

My new baby .... Alexander Wang suede combat boots 09'


My face is very pale in those pictures, that's because I am kinda lazy doing make-ups. So Pardon me!!

A. Wang boots is only trying out for picture here... I don't like the look, they are the wrong shoes.

I had my Y-3 sneakers on the whole day.


1. Top:
Anne Fontaine white shirt w/ Panther cuff links
Michael Angel digital print tank
2. Bottom: Joseph black wool pants
3. Accessory: Diesel white mesh suspender
4. Shoes: Y-3 sneakers

Have a good weekend and let your skin rest to its real beauty!!

hey R your outfit is so spring love all the colors. I really like that rose on your top. That SR dress is very cute and what a totally different look than last time. Very versatile.
You and your friend Yu look like sisters in that one picture :)

Hi, Susan:
thanks, dear. You know, the pink rose actually attaches ON the dress and looks like a pin there.

hah... Yu and I got that kind comment a lot..."Do we resemble that much?"

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. …

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…
