I am honing my cooking skill recently by trying new recipes, such as coconut shrimp and savory crepes. It is tricky to make perfect crepes as the consistency of the batter, a perfect flat frying pan, crepe spreader ... etc. all have to take into account before making a perfect "looking" of crepes!!  As for the taste, it takes cook's experiences and all guinea pigs' help (such as DH and my children or even my friends) to make a real savory crepe successful!!

It is always fun to cook w/ kids and let kids involved in all sorts of house chores ....including cooking! 
I even start asking my older son's help to pick up laundry from the dryer machine. So far, he can fold his little clothes and put away not bad, even I know he couldn't make a perfect folding but "getting involved" w/ house chores definitely teaches him how to be a sweet and kind husband in the future!! (Am I being ahead of myself here???!! haha~~~~)

 Crepe spreader and spatula ... then I am done preparing all the tools I need for making crepes!

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. …

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…
