Quote of the Day

More Cold...

Look like there will be 2 more days of the cold weather before changing to Summer. It's very strange for Thailand, especially Bangkok, to get this cold in March. Usually, the temperature is up to about 35 degree Celsius. It's strange but I don't complain one bit...

Just A Thought


According to Wikipedia, "a wedding reception is a party held after the completion of a marriage ceremony. It is held as hospitality for those who have attended the wedding, hence the name reception: the couple receives society, in the form of family and friends, for the first time as a married couple.

Since I moved back to Thailand in 2009, I've been to 3 wedding receptions - including one last night. They were all kind of the same concept meaning took place in a huge hotels' ballrooms, many guests were invited and many of those guests the brides and grooms might have met just once. By comparison; I'd been to many wedding ceremonies and receptions in the US, they were much more intimate - only close friends and families were invited. And usually the guests who attended the receptions came from the ceremonies, not just went straight to the parties. 

If I ever have one of my own, I prefer the latter... that's all !

Clip of the Day

I think I like this version more than the original one...

Being Anna


I think right now everyone knows who Anna Wintour is, even people who are not into fashion (thanks to the movie "Devil Wears Prada" and "The September Issue." In the recent article from Wall Street Journal, we have the access to the life of Anna and her allies...

Winter in March

The world is going crazy. First, heavy rain in Bangkok in March which usually is Summer and very hot and dry here. Now, the temperature drops to around 18 oC (64 oF)... that is how cold winter in Bangkok is. Don't get me wrong, I like cold weather but in the same time it's starting to freak me out !!!

Misty watercolor memories of the way we were. "

Nostalgia


Today is the last day of my then-boyfriend-now-goodfriend's trip in Thailand. I'll make the most out of this day and try not to be sad. I miss San Francisco a lot and meeting him bring back the memory of the city and people I love. I have my reason why I'm still in Bangkok - for my career and my future. I believe in destiny but I also believe in creating your own life - it's like a ship that waits for the wind to blow and adjusts the sail according to the wind. I can't wait to see what the destiny has in store for me...

Paris Round Up


I've been too busy to comment on each show from Paris Fall/Winter 2011 Fashion Week. So, here are what I'd like to sum up of...

The Good
Celine - Can't have enough of Celine, needless to say more
Herm├Ęs - Christophe Lemaire shows us the reason why he was chosen as creative director.

The Bad
Balmain - Christophe Decarnin, please give us something new. This collection looks like a left over of the previous collection which looked like the left over from the collection before that.

The Ugly
Louis Vuitton - For the second season in a row, MJ delivered something that very very strange, and not in avant-garde way...

Same Script Different Casts


I found it's funny that these two editorials by Matthias Vriens-McGrath look very similar, just changed the models. 
Above: From Stern magazine features Fernanda Tavares, Rodrigo Calazan, Maikel Castro, Lucas Arantes, Samuel Vieira and Diogo Rodrigues. Below: From S magazine features Sean Sullivan, Duke Dlouhy, Joel Rush, Greg Plitt, Steve Boyd and Ana Catharina. 

My Wish List...

As soon as I saw this new iPad, my heart sank to the floor and I know he will be mine. It was love at first sight...

The Last Galliano's

Who would have thought this would be the last collection of Dior by John Galliano? I'm not sure it's a coincidence or not that this collection seems dull to me. The whole situation that happened to Mr. Galliano brought up the discussion between people who support him and people who are against him. I, personally, don't like to judge anyone until I know the whole truth. But if he needs help, please do so...because we don't want to lose a 'genius' from the world of fashion. SOURCE
