Food for Soul!!

You must have encountered this situation that you want one thing for dinner but rest of the family want another. Like my family, when I cook rice, there must be someone, at least one person who wants noodles instead.....^%$#*(^$>#;... so now I am trained to out-smart my kids that I'd cook both rice and noodles whenever I need to fix a quick supper just to satisfy all their taste buds!! 

I am also smart enough that I'd prepare one set of ingredients that work for both dishes. The only difference between these two dishes is additional "egg" added for fried rice and "cabbage" incorporated in Yaki soba, instead. Aren't they looking delicious!!? 

Garlic beef fried rice and beef yaki soba!!....Both dishes have beef, carrots, and green onion. 

Weekend has always been our family's quality time and today is such a wonderful weather that we went to Santa Cruz's beach.  We'd spend as much time with our kids as our best possibly can on the weekends and I know those happy memories will last life-time!!

Yeah~ Looks like Ilona is actually flying the plane!! ^^

J crew shirt, J crew school boy blazer, Fallon spike necklace, J crew studded belt, Paul and Joe sister shorts, Chloe wrap sandal, Chanel 10' Rouge/orange 226 reissue, San Diego hat co. striped hat. 

Beige, camel, caramel, .... whatever colors, they are family! ^^

Go and spend some quality time with your family!!

That blazer is truly versatile! I really like how you've paired it with a few different styles.

I've been thinking of getting a pair of summer wedges. Lots of choices, but I feel like they are starting to look the same to me. Have you ever tried the brand Vincent Camuto? I'm wondering if quality is decent since it's not too expensive.

Anyway, that fried rice/fried noodle looks yummy. You know I'm always a fan of food posts.

Btw, I also have "Kauai Revealed", if you are interested.

^^ hey, Betsy, how is your vacation.... must be fun!!

Irene and I finalized our Kauai trip but the tickets are really expensive!! Well,... guess they don't have many flights flying over there, that's why!!!

The summer wedges, hum.. you know, I'd think platform wedge will be fun and great for walking..especially in Taiwan. The road is horrible and uneven!! The added depth of platform might ease the impact of walking on those hard surfaces....well, (IMO) ^^

Never heard of it but I will google about it for sure.

Now you mentioned, I might start to ask you for advices about activities that we can do in Kauai. ^^
Have a good Monday!!

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…
