A Day - Well Planned!!

I signed up as a volunteer for Niel's school. His school organizes a Project Cornerstone for parents to read books to each class once a month and do some fun activities according to what book is about. I am glad that I have a parter, Mark, whose son also goes to the same class as Niel. And he is a well-experienced volunteer for school.

9:00 AM


Today's book: "Have you filled up your bucket? "
Everyone has to write a "warm fuzzy" = nice words to the other classmate.

  How does it work? If I said that I am so grateful to have you stopping by my blog and leaving me a comment. I am filling up your invisible bucket!! Then, if I have a smile/Thank-you words in return, we are filling each other's invisible bucket. We'd both be so happy!! ^O^ 

10:30 AM
Figured I have only 3 hours alone and should put it to good use. ^O^



1. Top:
Free people taupe lace tube top
Anthropologie jersey and silk shirt
Ports 1981 sequin cardigan 

2. Bottom:
Joie high waist leather shorts

3. Accessory:
Louis Vuitton silver loop w/ 3 signature charms earrings
gray socks
two tones croc embossed leather belt
Chanel 09' cruise matte white 227 reissue

4. Shoes:
Alexander Wang Abbey sandal heels 

It turns out this Ports 1961 second hand cardigan $89 is so practical to me. 

Same shade but different textures will give your same colored outfit some depth and fun. 

I intended to leave my bag unbuttoned...but I guess I won't even dare to do that when travel to Italy this November. 

Then I start putting Halloween pieces around my house... untill....... gotta go picking up Niel from school at 2 PM, and dropping off for Chinese class at 3:30 PM. Again, picking up Ilona and Heidi from school around 3:45 PM. Running errands in between, then picking up Niel at 4:30 PM and rushing from Cupertino to Los Gatos for both Niel and Heidi's 4:45 PM Piano Class. .... VROOM, VROOM ~~~~ (Of course I am, we are, late for 5 mins when we were there about 4:50 PM already.)

Anyone wants to be hired as private chauffeur?  lol

5:35 PM

It is 6:30 PM when we arrived home for dinner. Who says that I'd be Super relaxed and FREE when kids are all gone for school????!! 


"WOMEN and CATS do as they please. 
Men and Dogs should relax and get used to the idea!!!"

Have you filled up your bucket yet?
Have a good laugh!

Thanks, Ren. I am glad we found each other in blog-sphere as well. ^^

You too, dear, good day!

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…
