We’re back!

with one comment


We’re far still safe from the flu. but better to wear masks in the coming week to be extra safe.

The trip was good . but here are some of my not so good experiences that i wanna share with you esp those who may travel soon :

– Nice trip, but would be more fun and relaxed if there is no ‘swine flu’ alert throughout the journey.

– Cathay Pacific Airline is just great : no delay and with great service level; compared to the United Airline with the 1 hour domestic flight from LA to Las Vegas got delay for 3 hours (many doubt that the airline just cancelled and consolidated the save cost?!  BUT what comes worst is they OVERSOLD tickets?!!) Huh?! Yes, OVERSOLD tickets and i noticed their other flights are also with same situation.  Is that how they do biz????

– It was not a good experience to have the 13 hours flight back from USA to home.  The passenger sitting in front of me was sick (took panadol, coughing, sneezing..a bit scary..all the symptoms are marked ‘tick’.. oh gosh..) BUT, she was NOT wearing masks until after flying i guess at least half of the journey i requested the flight attendent to give her a mask in order to be ‘CONSIDERATE’.   Interesting ! those who are not sick are wearing masks throughout the fly but there are people who are not feeling quite well with no concept to wear mask to protect her/himself as well as others!!!!  Umm…an even more tighten procedure / guideline maybe needed if u really wanna to minimize the impact of this new virus !

ok. back to the nice will come soon!!! 🙂

with 2 comments

Simple yet is our wedding band (after several rounds of shopping..)

One of the reasons that I bought this is …. the box that carries the rings is just beyond beautiful…

kakaka….can’t believe that this can be one of the reasons…..

Nice packing!

Nice packing!



The box carrying the ring is like a jewellry box... I like it soo much!

Vintage dress

with 4 comments

so here comes my vintage white dress that i bought earlier…

I altered the length of the lower part of the dress so that part of the floral lace can be seen through.

it’s a 1950’s venetian lace hourglass dress with satin linen. The waist is going to put on a ribbon with a buckle..gorgeous..

isn’t it beautiful?


bcos it’s only for my casual engagement shoot, i aimed to find one little white short dress …and shopped & shopped & shopped until i found this…love at the first sight and can’t wait to buy it immediately…

The shop owner, Ah Sa, is my friend’s friend, and her shop is at Causewaybay featuring unique timeless vintage dress….so if you’r a vintage fan, must go and have a look – Satis Factory Vintage emporium
