The Gastronomy Gathering of my Fashionable Flocks!

Last Saturday, us girls went to Mourad restaurant to try Moroccan food in the city.  Even though it is acclaimed as Michelin 1 star, and I have dined there more than 5 times but never tried their tasting menu. We decided to give it a try.  Honestly, I was still as excited as I was the 1st time I went. That's a spot I will always be happy to invite friends to. As an avid wine drinker, I appreciate Jose, a reputable sommelier in Mourad, who shares his knowledge about various wine regions and answers my many questions. It is a true wine tasting experience outside Napa. 

First off, the champagne!!! We were surprised by an array of "pre-appetizers" before our tasting menu.  The hospitality and generosity definitely won our hearts over. We started from oysters. The oysters are beautifully dressed with chopped apples and flowers which is like a precious pearl glimmering in the summer ocean. I couldn't help myself-- I devoured it, but still appreciated it as if it were a miniature garden in the shell. The following sip of Champaign made the oyster's after-taste linger with a delightful sweetness! What a perfect way to begin our meal. Each of our courses is custom-paired with wine or Mascot or even port, according to the dishes and preferences. (At this point, some of the wine is beyond the pairing menu.) 

As much coaxing as I gave to Mourad and Jose, you should come here and give your tastebuds an exotic treat. However, I do have to mention the last red wine I had: Arietta. It is a close to full body with smooth tannins wine. It goes perfectly with our short rib for the night. I will leave enticing photos to do the talking instead. Mission completed for me since everyone went home with satisfaction and no one was drunk either. ha~

Rib eye, all time favorite at Mourad

 Smoked ducks (when we were handed with Port with this course, we thought it is odd. But tell you what, the port is perfectly married with the saltiness and tangy of the dressing.)

A wine connoisseur can't skip a good pairing of Cabernet.

Jose did the line-up of the wines we paired with our meals. How thoughtful! 

Thanks to my girl friends that they followed my B&W pre-summer outfit looks for the night.

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…
