exhibition - clothing, food, dwelling and transport

I almost missed this exhibition in former Central Police Station Headquarters Building on Hollywood Road.
I wanted to be supportive because the exhibition was based upon the humble intelligence of daily life in Hong Kong.  You know the city is famous for its extreme urban density.

This was my first time to visit the former Central Police Station which is one of last historic builidings. Contemporary art exhibition could blend in perfectly with heritage setting. 
There could be more places like this, and there could be less identical high-rise structures.

summer vacation 2011 - Taipei

I went to Taipei with my family.  It has been a long time since we travelled together.  We stayed there for a week.  To be honest, I didn't have a good impression of Taipei when I visited last time.  Now it seems different - cleaner and more developed in terms of city planning.  But in the meantime it is concerned about historic preservation.  Taiwanese cuisine is awesome.  I definitely need diet plans to shed a few pounds afterwards.


 I also found out some goodies from Taiwan. 
Luckily I didn't go over board for shopping.
rice cake - I just like its texture and lighter sweet taste
go better with some Chinese tea

We stopped by Yingge (鶯歌) which is a pottery town
in the southwest of Taipei City.
I bought some handmade ceramic cups in a shop. 
The shop owner was very nice to us - even gave us some small gifts.

These cute little bags come from Lovely Taiwan Shop
which is such a good place to find souvenir. 
Every product is designed by local Taiwanese artists. 

In the end everyone had a great time there. 
It won't be a bad idea if I can go to Taiwan every year.

80th birthday

Today is my aunt's 80th birthday, and it is a big day for everybody. 
We need to be well prepared for tonight's party. 
I have to find a dress with any color other than black or grey.
It's like a mission impossible for me.
Oh, I think I should add some color to my wardrobe just in case I will need it .

second collection

I like this fabric so much and I have to make some handbags out of it.
The floral pattern fits perfectly in round-bag design. 


I would try to come up something new for each collection
I don't want to bore anyone, including myself
This time is oval shape and zipper pouch.


The dot pattern reminds me of starry night.
