Shine bright like a Diamond

Shine bright like a Diamond

I have tons of skirt in my closet that I love to pair with my “least to wear” tops. This white maxi skirt is one of my favorite. My husband got it from one of the small boutique in our local store. Actually, he suggested to try it on and I fell in love with it right away. I love that the style on the hips creates the illusion of a bigger bum 😉 and the bottom move like waves when you walk. This is perfect during sunny weather, casual-home/mall, or beach strolling.

Fun School Event

Fun School Event

My friend invited me tonight to watch her son’s school presentation for the Battle of the Paddle at St. Francis School. I thought it was super nice of her to think that she needed to look for an extra ticket since they found out that tickets were sold out in school. Thank God there was another parent who has an extra ticket to share. We met at 6pm at our common friends house and I hopped in her car going to the event. We stopped by at Starbucks to get some drinks and drove to school. When we arrived, there was a long line outside but we still need to wait for her friend for my ticket. I was a little embarrassed for causing the delay but it seems like everything went well, after couple of minutes of waiting I finally got my ticket and went in. It was my first time to watch such presentation in a school here in the US so I was very excited. It was an intense cheering from the parents waiting for the presentation until it all started. Everyone gets crazy including me. It was  so much fun. The freshmen were the first presenter followed by the Sophomore and Juniors and Seniors. I did my best to cheer for the seniors because obviously that’s where my friends son is. Everyone did a great job and seniors won first placer.
Thanks to my friend who remembered me to be in that event. I had a great evening and has learned about school events as well. It maybe a good start for me until I have my own student. 🙂

DMV FAIL-Pink Friday

DMV FAIL-Pink Friday

My car’s registration has expired almost a month ago. We just forgot about it before we realized it’s too late. I went to DMV and fall in line and waited for my number to be called for almost an hour just to be told that I can not renew my car’s registration until I get a copy of emission recall from my car dealership. That like geeeeezz! wth moment but I tried to look i’m fine and that tomorrow is another day. Anyway, I definitely won’t drive my car this weekend since it is Friday today and we got to wait until Monday. My husband already made an appointment at the dealership for the certification blah blah and was told that it is one DMV new regulation that you have to have that certificate.
The bright side is….I had experienced going to the DMV for car registration and somehow learned about the process. Yay!
When stepped out of the office it was freaking HOTTTT given that it’s only 1st March, spring and not summer. I went to my car and checked that tenmperature is 73degreeF. Amazing. Thank God I went home safe. No cops. 🙂

Valentines 2013

Valentines 2013

February 2013
Valentines Day has always been special to me. Because at this day I celebrate one of my favorite color, RED. But in our house, it’s just one ordinary day just like yesterday. Not because it doesn’t mean anything to us, but because everyday is always like a Valentines day if you’re going to check based on definition of the occasion. 🙂 My husband brought a bouquet of flowers and a card which he always does even with no occasion except that this time, I got 10 kisses instead of 8. lol
Today, I am wearing my pretty top shirt with heart prints (Marshalls) paired with my favorite blue jeans (Penshoppe Phils) and my red suede shoes. My shoes is one of my great deals found from Kohls, I paid $9.99 for this! It’s not one of the fancy mancy brand but obviously is one well-made.

Fisherman’s Wharf, Monterey, CA

Fisherman's Wharf, Monterey, CAfish1

My sister-in-law, Claire, visited California for the first time. She is from the East Coast, New Jersey, which was by that time, of her visit was having snow storm. It was our pleasure to show her the beauty of our small county, Santa Cruz and so we did some trip to the neighborhood as well.
Monterey Bay is one of the most favorite destination once you’re in the west coast. It’s Fisherman’s Wharf is superb in displaying varieties of restaurants to try or maybe just to have a bowl of clam chowder that are available right on the spot, just a corner from where you’ve been taking picture. 🙂 The gorgeous weather was just enough for us to enjoy strolling while visiting the small shops. The sounds created by the seals nearby are just awesome to listen to while glancing at the blue water hoping there’s a shark that would jump out of water.

Monterey Bay has always been a good place to visit. There are wine tasting rooms across the Wharf that surely people would enjoy and some seats available to relax when you get tired.

Sista Monica at Los Gatos, CA

Sista Monica at Los Gatos, CA

Summer hotta’ event, Music in the Part, Los Gatos, CA
July 1, 2012
We had a blast listening/watching to Sista Monica mini concert at Los Gatos. It’s an all packed event that requires everyone to use chair while watching the show. But since we only have decided to come in last minute after we found out at a website, we did not know there are rules! (except its free) We did not bring a chair! but we have our beach blanket which is not allowed. So we just fold our blanket “butt size”and that we could sit while enjoying the show.
After more than an hour of great music, we decided to stand up and shake our butt to the tune of her music. Who cares if everyone is watching us! haha! We started dancing like no one is watching! It was so much fun.
Also, it was a learning experience maybe next time, we always have to make sure that we are prepared whenever we decided to come in a last minute event. Fascinated with the people and music, we went home thrilled and satisfied.
