My Gals' Style, layered, striped,....... all trec chic!!

Today, we all gathered at Cathy's place to cook my signature dish... Beef Noodle Soup. After done cooking, we waited at least 4 hours for the beef to be tendered enough to melt in our mouth......... WHY does it take so long????

Normally, it takes only 1 1/2 hour to 2 hr. but since the pot we used in Cathy's place is not a very good one, we snacked our way to be full during the whole lunch time!!! haha........ So, if you ask me about is it worth to invest a good cooking POT, I'd say, SURE!!! It saves your time and money....the GAS!! :)

Anyway, I am still trying to upload the video to FB but it seems taking forever!! If you want to know my recipe for beef noodle soup, you probably have to go to FB then.

However, nothing is more fun than seeing my gals' creative outfits, right!!! Here we go!

Hey, Catherine:
when you mean tenderize your beef, you cooking longer if it is a stew, or you can add a pinch of baking soda to marinade it for 10 mins before stirring fry it.

Ha, Susan: we don't wear shoes at home... so we all bare foot or wear slippers at Cathy's place yesterday.

if you go to my FB icon from my blog at right hand side, it will direct you. However, the FB uploading sucks, I have been managing to upload 5 sections of recording since yesterday...still working on it. So far, you can see the ingredients and part of the cutting and blanching..... ><

I can see why Cathy loves leggings because she has beautiful legs. Please tell her I'm really *not* a weird stalker or anything... :)

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…
