Holiday Dos When Traveling in San Francisco!

Where could you stay when traveling overseas...such as San Francisco?
A place like home, sweet home where you can cook, sleep, eat at the same place and even do your laundry as well as large enough to accommodate for a whole crew of friends and families.... plus, not a place that would cost you arms and legs.
The answer: Vacation Home!!
(NOTE: I am not affiliated w/ this website nor benefit from doing advertising for the house.)  

It happens when, today, I visit my friend, Renee, in San Francisco to give her 11' Cruise CHANEL brooch I bought in Milan then she already had a whole day schedule planned ahead. One of the plan is to be a food judge for a cooking contest. 

Interesting, right!?? 

The employees/friends of this Broderick Victorian vacation home company are having a cooking contest which they are requested to cook in every dish w/ papaya... green or yellow/orange. So, off we go in the afternoon after we stopped by Hermes!! ^^ (NOTE: I didn't buy anything there, I am only go w/ Renee.)

The pretty hall way!

Girls are cooking against boys today~~ ^O^

Upstairs, boys are cooking w/ the receipt shown on the computer.....funny!!

A bonus room for kids/adults to hang out!


One of the nicely arranged bedroom. 

Thanks for arranging all this, Boss!! lol. 

Spicy Mussels w/ papaya

sweet papaya salad

Green papaya stir fry


One of their host...Mida (golden retriever), who loves chewing/eating/biting tissues, papers all sorts! ^^

Judges are all giving good critiques for the food!! 

 hum.... I think they are thinking of the taste of food "lingering" in their mouths!!! ^^

 (NOTE: We didn't get to eat when the cooking contest is on-going w/ at least 10 kinds of dishes and it lasts about 2 hours or so.... I am drinking red wine the whole time while I shot around in the house.... finally, starving,...and my stomach hurts......... lol.)

 The whole day was fun and now since you know how cozy/friendly the house itself as well as the hosts, I am sure you will love staying here next time when you visit San Francisco!!



You are having a déjà vu here??? Well,...yes, I worn this whole ensemble couple days before!!
However, I had it accessorized differently....gloves and Manolo blahnik water snakeskin tan/green d'orsay pump!! 
Yu gifted me this cozy/chic gloves w/ studs for Christmas. 

We had one of the best India food on Polk st.... so spicy and in-mouth-melting-away chicken....just the way I love about India food!!

Are you traveling soon?

Have a happy Sunday!

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…
