Here we are...my reward for myself.... a clay spa treatment for my feet. 


Photobucket
I am waiting for the clay to turn WHITE and then I can wash it off in the HOT HOT HOT water. 


Photobucket
You can tell how hot it is by the steam.



Photobucket
Everyone enjoys a dip or two! ^^


Off we go for an energy packed lunch... I thought we are going to eat steak, roasted chicken, cheese fondue, or even burgers.....to replenish ourselves. ... but the truth is:.....

Photobucket
The candles are there for keeping flies away, not for a romantic purpose. lol 


Photobucket
I can't quite get used to the taste of west Java and had to run to Starbucks for scones and latte later at night. lol. 


After lunch, kids play at Kid Jones Park! Niel, Abby and Ilona love all sorts of flying fox and seem can't get enough of that.

Niel looks like a real "superman" there... ^^

This is such an unforgettable experience for Abby. 


Photobucket
Even Ilona is not afraid of flying fox!


Photobucket
Go, go, go, Niel!


I even ride flying fox (for adult) w/ Ilona before we are off for dinner!


We then had dinner at Paris Von Java Shopping Center which is quite a nice place to shop and dine!

Stay tuned for more fun at West of Java!!

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…
