Everyone has his/her expectation toward certain things throughout the life...  may it be the self-image of body figure, the career, the salary,.. the friendship, parents to their kids, kids to their parents, the husband to wife, or vice versa, and we are by no means following the expectation to certain point.

The past weekend, Ilona is still under the reluctant mode of going to school.  She told me every night that she'd cry the whole day at school.  At the end, I have to threaten her that if she doesn't go to bed right now or go to school tomorrow she won't receive any Christmas gift from Santa. :P

I don't know how much bargaining chips I need just for raising one kid.  Ilona is very deft about this that she'd say she doesn't want/like any toy/candy from Santa anymore. In this case, I'd lose ..... but again, I am glad that "authority" is what's left.  Ilona still goes to school crying for a while but at least these past two days, she starts talking about "school fun" again. ^^

We'd count all the pumpkins at school before we walk Ilona into her class.
See Ilona has that grudge face! lol 

Jean Paul Gautier floral print sheer tank, TSEsay orange knitting dress, Elisabeth & James long vest, Helmut lang suede crimson pants, Dior patent quilted boots, J crew belt, BR belt, jade w/ 18K gold earrings, Lanvin Happy sac. 

I double and cross belt these two belts...for fun!

When DH stays home till noon, he'd "kind of expect" me to cook lunch for him..... sometimes I do, sometimes I don't and today, I am in the mood!!

You know, what's really good about "ready and just heat-it-up pouch?"
You can make them not just look like home-made but also taste like home-made cooking. 
I, of course, add more ingredients, some spices, and freshly picked "Parsley" from our garden to this dish. 

What's my expectation?

Just relax till I figure out how to open a store!! ^^

A shirt from Anthro.  Plain, retro, cheap and comfortable!! ^O^

 ... I am going to see how it turns out after I pair it w/ H&M pants I bought together last weekend.

Stay tuned.

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…
