Happy 4th Birthday, Ilona and So-Long my friends in Taiwan~~

I guess until next year, I won't be able to see many of my friends. One of them is moving to New Jersey and the other one is moving to Vancouver in Canada!! You meet new friends, and you miss old friends along the course and that's life, isn't it!!?

CAFFE' MIO costumed-made this Cinderella Cartoon theme cake for Ilona. 

{Big thanks to my friend, Fiona, who tells me this wonderful cafe shop in Taipei. And they made this theme cake requested by my daughter, Ilona, possible and successful!! Another thanks goes to Mandy who reserved Grant Hotel for us so my friends can all gather there and celebrate Ilona's birthday with us. I love you, all my friends. }

There are 4 glass heels represents Ilona's 4-year-old birthday!

Gotta love the punctilious details of this Cinderella theme cake. 

{I actually went back and forth to the bakery for this cake 3 times just to make sure the theme will be well-interpreted before my Korea trip. } ^O^

My trophy this Asia trip { After scoring Hermes' Orange CDC at Korea airport and Chanel garden tweed bag in Taipei, I think I can pack and go HOME... }

Speaking of being punctilious, I know that I like to criticize about everything in general. However, I think I am merely being a punctilious person that I set a higher standard to myself and in life.  On the other hand, friends all know that I do give positive and constructive suggestions when it comes to friends asking me for advice. 





{I am squeezing 4 gatherings in these last two days in Taipei.... }

Count my blessing and you should do it too. ^_^

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…
