Holiday home

Hamptons Cottage by Leslie Klotz from House Beautiful

I think I love everything about this cottage, especially the colour scheme... I don't think I can find a better design for a holiday home. It brings you right into a relaxed state of mind! This is what i need....a holiday home to make the working days not as bad.

Well....HAPPY WEEKEND for now!

Two of my favorite things combined.....Cinderalla and Monchhichi.....I still don't understand why i keep buying Monchhichis when they all look the same.....

Guess who on the sides are suppose to be ------------------------------

-------- it's Elvis・Mon & Mon・Roe! TOO FUNNY!

Kid rooms

All of above from Valspar

If I have kids, this is how I will paint their rooms. Never occured to me that there are so many different shades of paints and different kinds of coatings until I had to decide for my place recently. I wish i have more walls so i can paint them all in different shades!

Raindrops keep falling on my head....

Seems like the rain will never stop.

I hate carrying around an umbrella. I hate getting my jeans wet all the time. I hate getting poked in my eyes by umbrellas numerous times a day.

But...... I do love a pretty photograph of the rain. I do love driving in the rain. I do love watching rain drops fall down from the sky!

Happy Monday!

To lighten up the heavy and rainy Monday...have a dessert!

Ella, Ella, eh eh ehhhhhhh

Ambient Umbrella from Ambient Devices

I thought i left the rain behind when i left Vancouver.....seems like it's following me everywhere....from Vancouver to Katashina to HK.... And now... with the super strong wind and rain combination... my little umbrella doesn't work so well...i guess i need sth bigger...and sturdier. But for the environmental friendly groups, there's the Eco Brolly which uses old newspaper, cards and plastic bags. So it's both resuable and disposable. There's also the Twilight Umbrella...not the vampire Twilight....which is studded by fiber optics. And then for the techy group...there's the Ambient Umbrella, the handle changes colour according to the weather. Of course...for the artsy ones...there's sth from MoMa.

Taking off & Landing.....

This is posted as per Bagel's is kinda cool though...Made me realized that ppl do go all out when they are interested in something.

Lady Dior

Lady Dior

First there's there's Lady Dior....starring Marion Cotillard. I haven't seen La Vie en Rose...but she did look very elegant at the Oscar...both years! Dior's campaign is a more effective in a way....since Lady Dior's story is divided into parts and you kinda have to check back once in a while.....However, i have never been a Dior here you go!

Fun furniture

It would be quite fun to have a piece of furniture lying around....given the house is big enough of coz!!! You can basically do anything with these 120 elastic fabric covered balls.......The colour combination can be customized accordingly to your pref!

Places to go to....

One day....i will sit in that Water Villa......and i will jump right into the water every morning from my bed!!!!!!!!!! how pretty is this!?!??!?!!? the water.... the sand.... the trees..... the flowers..... everything!!! But i guess sitting at a beach all day long could be a bit boring after a i will only go there once every three to four months so i wouldn't get bored hahahaha

On my iPod

If a picture paints a thousand words,
Then why can't I paint you?
The words will never show the you I've come to know.
If a face could launch a thousand ships,
Then where am I to go?
There's no one home but you,
You're all that's left me too.
And when my love for life is running dry,
You come and pour yourself on me.

If a man could be two places at one time, I'd be with you.
Tomorrow and today, beside you all the way.
If the world should stop revolving spinning slowly down to die,
I'd spend the end with you.
And when the world was through,
Then one by one the stars would all go out,
Then you and I would simply fly away

Took me a while to find the video..... guess music video was not the thing back in 1970s......But this song is really...... as cheesy as it sounds..... beautiful!!! Just ignore the video... and listen to the song itself!

The artistic side of me....

Configuration 3 by Christian de Vietri

Rag chair by Tejo Remy

Cinderella table by Jeroen Verhoeven

Thing: Beware the Material World at the Art Gallery of Western Australia

I have to admit that i don't know how to appreciate art....but these items are kinda fun! Christian de Vietri's Configuration 3 takes a whole new meaning to IKEA products.....and i m sure we can all put together something like Tejo Remy's Rag chair. But i guess that's what makes a designer/artist....when u have the ability to think of the unthinkable.

And then there's Jeroen Verhoeven's Cinderella table...which caught me eye becoz of its name...but then i read how he uses a computer to generate the 3-D design to manipulate the wood and then hand finishes it (or somewhere along the line).......... This is when i wish i have the artistic gene in me!!!

Places to go to........

The Adagio in Taiwan

I m kinda disppointed that i m travelling less than i wish to....esp when i have easy access to all these different countries. Right now...i m planning my next trip to Taiwan.........and i found this really cool "resort" ....... i want to visit the forest....Must be cool to wake up and look at this view.... Reminds me of the time in Katashina..............

Pair it up!

Where's the boat?

Bagel introduced me to Polyvore a while back. It has been one of my favorite sites since then coz i can do multiple shopping and pairing on one site........ i have finally created my first set, but compared to the others....mine looks so bad...i will work on it!!!!!!

Toy Camera

Blackbird, fly Twin-lens reflex camera

When everyone is using digital camera's nice to go retro....start developing films!! Especially when they r so pretty now!

For now....

Chanel No.5 The Film

Since it will be a while before Coco avant Chanel will be shown.....This Chanel No.5 commercial by Audrey Tautou will do for now......I like this one better than Nicole Kidman's actually.... Just becoz Audrey Tautou looks sooooo classy....
