Modern Stuff

I bought this Espresso stove-top dripper in Rome during last London and Italy trip last year. I never had the time to try it out or I should say I never thought it would be so quick to drip a cup of Espresso. How quick? Quicker than I finish texting several sentences of this exciting experience on FB this morning. 

This is single cup Espresso and they are available for dripping dual cups of Espresso at the same time. 

Brand new installed hardwood floor and new paint on kitchen cabinet. 
{I am glad we did it during our trip in Taipei...yeah...}

Our house is brighter than ever, thanks to the white cabinets and big windows in the kitchen and family room. 



I am a habitue of both the city of San Francisco and its surrounding museums. lol. Hubby and I appreciated the fact that there are plenty of places for family to visit during the weekdays or even the weekends in USA. The least hubby could stand staying in Taipei is that everywhere is so crowded especially during the weekends.

We are finally back to our home in San Francisco and I took kids to SFMOMA  in the morning to help them adjust the jet lag. 

Starting July, SFMOMA will provide family with lots of activities to do on Sundays.

{The stories in "My Milk Toof" is just so cute to be past on... here is the blog:}

If not because we visited MOMA and had someone installed hardwood floor, hence the furnitures got moved around and things are mis-placed in the house, I'd almost forgot these two adorable sculptures (Cow) I bought during our stay at Venice in Italy. 

Those are creations/inspiration that artists all over the world did for a charity event. 

{I so wanted to get that Cow bathing in the Milk pearl tea which is dedicated for event in Taipei in 2009 but they completely sold out. } 

{The bigger cow is "The Moo Potter". Meredith McCord created for Kansas City in 2001}

Karen Walker Milky pink sunglasses, floral skirt, pink knitting sweater, faux leather collar with embellished beads, Proenza Schouler large messenger bag, Trippen "happy" shoes

You really should check out "Trippen" shoes. They are extremely comfortable and stylish that people are staring at my feet,, I mean, my shoes everywhere I go. lol.

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. …

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…
