Lost… and Found

I was out and about in the city yesterday, wearing one of my favorite scarves: Pointu Tigre Royal. When I back home, I realized that one of the little orange tassels on one side of the scarf was missing!
It sucks when you lose something that you adore, but it sucks even more when you know that you are not able to buy a substitute. Ahh…. In order to console myself, I went out again and treated myself a cup of caramel macchiato and a huge piece of Frankfurter Kranz. ;-) While I was enjoying the drink and cake, I couldn’t help thinking about the missing tassel. Where and how could I lose it without even noticed?! In the end, it bothers me so badly so that I decided to trace my shopping route back. Coz this is probably my last chance to get it back. If I couldn’t find it, it’s fine. At least I’ve tried thus I have nothing to regret, but what if I had the luck and…?

So I went back to the city and revisited the stores I’ve been to. Just as I am about to give up, there it was! Lying on the ground in a shop where I got some clothes for my baby. Can you imagine how thrilled I was? Well, I know it sounds stupid to be so happy about such a little material thing, but you can understand how I felt, right? ;-)

When I told my hubby about the story later, he joked that our baby is my luck bringer. Since I found the missing part in that baby shop. Well, I hope so too. As my due day is coming closer and closer, all I need is luck! ^_* Thank you for reading such a lengthy post and now please enjoy miss Pointu Tigre Royal in her full glory~~

Pink Ladies

It is still frozen cold. However, according to the lunar calendar, spring has already started since last Saturday. It doesn’t feel like spring outside, but thanks to these pink ladies, I do feel the smell of spring at home. :-)

When Leopard meets Lizard

Happy monday everyone! Today is a new start for me coz I am officially on my maternity leave! :D It’s time to post something special to celebrate, huhu~~

I have always been a fan of leopard prints, but never liked the exotic leather as python or lizard, especially in my early twenties. Now years later, I begin to appreciate the natural beauty of these special leathers. The texture and print of the exotics can be so unique and gorgeous when done tastefully. They can easily spice up a sleek outfit, add character and personality to the one who wears them. So, may I share two of my recent wild finds:

- Ombré lizard Kelly Dog cuff
- Suede and leopard-print calf hair pumps

Thank you for dropping by and have a wonderful week ahead!

Rise of the Planet of the Apes

When it comes to film genres, I have to admit that science fiction is not on top of my favorite. My hubby on the contrary, is a big fan (I guess it is human nature for them to like these kind of stuff, no? lol~~) So when he suggested the Rise of the Planet of the Apes. I was like, hmm… but he persuaded me and even assured me that I’m gonna like it. Given that he knows me too well, I decided to give it a try.

Well, he’s right. What a great film!

It turned out that the Rise of the Planet of the Apes is not a simple science fiction film just loaded with CGI/Special Effects, but a very powerful and emotionally driven one. The action scenes are simply spectacular, and most importantly, the story at the movie’s core is very engaging.

I am not going to reveal any spoilers here, but even if you’ve never seen a Planet of the Apes film or you aren’t a fan of the whole series, this film is still a worth see if you want something decent yet interesting. My hubby said the 1968 original science fiction classic is even better. Okay, that one is now on my must see list. ;-) What’s your recent favorite movie?
