With My Whole Heart Thanks!!

I obtained my Zumba 1, 2 and Zumbatomic licenses and now I am an official Zumba instructor. Yey~~~ {I have all my friends' and family's blessing with me the whole time... and, yeah, you know, my dear hubby baby-sitted 3 children all the way in Napa for 3 days just so I can be closer to them while I had my training in Fairfield!! ^O^}

However, even thought now I am an official Zumba instructor, it doesn't mean I am going to teach or stop going to my mentor, my Zumba instructor's class. In fact, after I completed those training, it only inspires me how much effort and time you have to put into practice to be a good Zumba instructor. No matter what style he/she is, no matter if he/she has dancers background, it certainly needs a lot of commitment to be responsible to your students and to fellow instructors who seeks inspiration while they attending another instructors' classes. {*Kudos* to all the Zumba instructors out there and around the world!!} 

{Thank you, Jennifer and Wendy. Good luck to your Zumba teacher career!!} 



Hubby isn't an epicure at all, therefore he doesn't fancy those 3 stars Michelin restaurants. {Although I really wanted to go Michelin star restaurants in Downtown Napa. lol} Good thing is there are a lot of nice casual dining options in Napa without leaving you a big, fat check. Here is one good Thai restaurant- Mini Mango!!

Green Papaya salad.

Short spareribs

Grilled squid Salad

Pad Thai 

Wide noodles in Thai sweet chili sauce 

Chocolate Wonton with ice cream n' raspberry puree 

A little souvenir of monogrammed coaster for me and hubby. 

Nothing beats a nice photo to mesmerize the happy moment forever!!



Rachel, this is awesome news, congrats on getting your Zumba instructor certificate! This might be so exciting :))

My BF wasn't an epicurean when we first met, but going to The French Laundry changed his mind. It is a 4 hour mini vacation from reality where the whole concept of eating changes. Try it. It's life changing.

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!!!

Aren't those 3 capes classic n' gorgeous!!!!

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…
