Afternoon tea!!

When we stay-home-mom doesn't have to rush to pick kids up by 2:05 PM or 3:30 PM, we have extended quality time with gal friends. It is so important for us moms/girls to stay connected with our life, the mutual communication with husbands, the school works of our kids, and kids' after school activities...etc. For me, the engaging time with my gal friends will remind me how to weight the priority among myself, my family, my husband, my kids and my passion of so many other things. Surely it is a great way of supporting each other and strengthen each other along the course of life.  


Yesterday, Pei and I had a girly afternoon tea in Los Altos and it is so relaxing in a way that we can just talk about our core family, kids and husband. {You know, it is much simplified when life is without the involvement of our parents and in-laws.  But I know when I need my parents, they are only a phone call away. What can I say, they are my family, my best supporting system other than friends. ^O^}

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…

A Fashion and Gastronomy trip in NEW YORK CITY

I am back from big apple, New York city. I have to say for anyone who loves fashion will love New York city.  My friend and I enjoyed this grand New York fashion and gastronomy trip every minute and every bite. 

I probably will do a proper annotation for each pictures but let's just have those pictures up for now. 


This sweater from Emporio Armani is love at first sight. All the green, navy and purple and the asymmetrical cut of boatneck make this sweater extraordinary.

From Nice to Monte Carlo to Cannes by Car.

(Couple wording revised)

Hubby and I always enjoy driving in between small cities or big cities or any town in Europe. We never get cold feet even people comment about how difficult or troublesome or scary to drive in Europe. As a matter of fact, my kind of driving is like people in Europe, fast, precise and always look "forward" to the destination - so I enjoy NO speed limit( Actually after I post this blog, the taxi driver in Paris told us that now they do have speed limit in Paris and there are a lot of hidden cameras. )  Ouch~~ 

The tip of driving in Europe is you always need two kinds of maps, one is printed map while your the other map, electronic one fails. If you plan to stay longer than a week and you would like to visit some other towns near by, it would come in handy to have an Internet service on your phone.  Thus, you can always upload a Google map, or whatever map to guide you through the cities.  There are local phone service and you can ask about their rate of …
