Confidence! Because of my Miu Miu Platform?

Interesting thing I noticed these days is that even though my current vision is still not-so-perfect, now I actually feel myself "more me and confident in the pictures" whenever I am in front of the camera. 
I guess since I can't be sure whatever in front of me, I just do whatever my best could be!!! (Does this sound like a murmuring here? =))




Today Fedex comes w/ my Miu Miu leather wedge platform.... I am so so content w/ its color and the wooden platform. Not in a bright blue but a ... hum... Pei commented: Like a pair of Vintage Blue jeans' BLUE.  
(Maybe it looks brighter in those pictures though.)

1. Top:
J Crew shirt 
J Crew nude/beige school boy blazer (2011)

2. Bottom:
HM high waist, big pocket pants

3. Accessory:
black mesh ribbon
(Bag: I still carry my past season Bottega Veneta white tote as messenger all day long.) =)

4. Shoes:
Miu Miu blue calf leather platform wedge (2011)

I guess my vision is not yet recovered Miu Miu~~



I love a good quality of the furniture...oh, no, wooden platform, the polish finish of the coating on the wood. 

Ok, good soul comes from good food!! I said that!! ^^
I cook dry scallops into two dishes. (Of course, first you have to soak them into water for couple hours and hand slice them into thin strips.)

1.) Fresh baby scallops n' dry scallops fried rice (Dry scallops have a special aroma that missing in fresh scallops.)
I add asparagus, onion ( You sweat them until they are almost caramelized.), and scramble eggs. 
The trick is I don't season it myself. (You could, just sesame oil, some soy sauce, and white pepper and dash of sea salt if you desire) Instead, a store bought Garlic Seasoning did all the perfect taste for me



2). Chinese Broccoli w/ dry scallops
Just because I don't like leftover "ingredients", I saute' these two things together. ^O^ First, saute dry scallops then Chinese Broccoli and add couple spoon water to steam until the broccoli is tender. Ah... the salt, white pepper or a bit sesame oil (not necessary) , and Voila' ~

Cook yourself some good meal, would you?!!

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!!!!

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…
