ho ho ho...... I should carry my Chanel in this shirt!! lol.

Now I am in a mission of searching for a perfect red Chanel classic. It surely feels great that DH complies with my wishes and let me SHOP for luxury.  You know temptation is the nemesis of a composed soul and now I am letting go of my mind.  ^^ ha ha~

Last minute shopping at ITC in Jakarta.

6/28/2010

Mother-in-law bought me swallow's nest and lots of dry goods for me. You must already know of most women pamper their skin by drinking swallow's nest in sweet soup!! ^^  She took me to ITC market again before we head back to Taipei and I am very grateful to her for all her kindness.

I guess all Asia countries are raving about Korea style fashion because of those soap opera shows and cheaper, but still nice quality clothes. Stores in ITC either import or locally made a lot Korea style clothes. Some stores would specifically tell you that they import all their clothes from Korea but you can never see a TAG prints like that...oh, well........ but the good thing is you can bargain in more of stores. That I have to thank for my mother-in-law and sister-in-law. ^^

Photobucket
I bought lots of belt this trip!!

Photobucket
Again, jumper!! Now even my sister-in-laws know I love the pattern and the look of it! :)

Photobucket
Everyone loves a thing of tie-dye but I don't own any... :P

Photobucket
Little baubles...earrings. 

Photobucket

Photobucket
A nice place for some styles of jean vest.

Photobucket

Photobucket
This is a store located at 5th floor which also imports clothes from Korea. The owner also pairs the complete head to "leg" outfit for you. 

Photobucket
I kinda like the colors of these two together .... rusty orange w/ gray.

Photobucket

Photobucket
I had a lot of fun trying out some cute earrings and DH snaps photos secretly. ^^

It is actually no photos allowed in most stores and I probably should have felt compunction about sneakily taking a picture of one or two. hehehe... 
I am getting abundantly anxious going back to HOME/USA but before that, we are squishing little time out to meet more relatives and friends!!

Friends are forever even we can't meet often.

The last destination is De Ranch where kids enjoy outdoor adventures and adults can also enjoy local treats and feet massage by some kind of electrical fish which electrifies your feet!! @@

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