Favorite Things Season 4

If you know me, I only have 7 living room basics in my dream home: a comfy sofa, a stylish ottoman, a beautiful self-portrait, an elegant chandelier, an array of lamps, a travel photo wall and a piano.

My Favorite Things Season 3

I do not wear any accessories at home, but of all the accessories in the world, I feel naked without a pair of earrings. I do not know exactly why but more than feeling naked, I feel incomplete.

Beggars Can’t Be Choosers

I know when and how to help. I have my own charitable works but it is something I do not discuss publicly nor announce on my Facebook wall whether how small or big it might be. Rolex always tell me that is a blessing to help others. I certainly agree and if I may add, […] CONTINUE READING β†’

Habemus Papam

We were glued to BBC last night waiting for the white smoke from maybe the most famous chimney in the world. Finally when the white smoke appeared, Rolex yelled “Habemus Papam”.

Holiday Craze

Its a long weekend holiday craze…Thursday, Friday and Saturday are officially work-free except that I am here in the office today (Thursday). All of my workmates seemed surprised. Why?

The Year that was 2012

Erase and rewind or rewind and move forward. For others, it can be rewind and let go. For whatever reasons, we can always rewind. If our memory serves us fresh then we can always look back but no time machine is there ready to take us back once upon a time in our life and […] CONTINUE READING β†’

Having grown up in a country where the Christmas spirit kicks off by the time the month turns “ber” (starting in September), I can’t help but miss it so much now that I am here in the land where Christmas is nothing but an ordinary day.
