Despite being said that Christmas has become way "too commercialized", i think what matters is the spirit of giving and well-being when we give our loved ones the perfect gift. Just to see a smile light up a receiver's face makes the holiday stress worthwhile. I'm enjoying a few quiet days before Christmas and I've been reflecting the quiet holidays I'll be having. Christmas used to mean my extended families gathering and I used to abhorr comments I get from relatives, like "when did u become fat?" (believe it or not, it's a standard greeting in my country). But now I kinda miss my curious aunties and rowdy cousins.
Just one last outfit post before the holidays descend on us and I'd like to greet every visitor on my blog a Merry, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!

A miniature christmas village.
A vintage camera. Now imagine if the cameras we use now still look like this :)
Hello Santa claus!
Anyway, this dress-lover does wear jeans too and I've always loved the classic white shirt and denim combo. I just have to tweak my shoe and bag choices and then I'd be good to go.
And have you heard that pink, specifically, honeysuckle, is the 2011's color. Isnt that great? Have a great day everyone :)

Over the weekend, I was reading Angela Carter's collection of stories and I love how her tales depict a particulary dark fairytale. The characters are quite familiar but not so because they all have a twisted tale to tell. There's Snow White who was borne out of her father's fantasy and not her mother's, a Cinderella who was wed to a Marquise de Sade and so on But what I liked most is that her writings are so rich, she interweaves stories with luxurious elements like a Poiret white gown, a blood red ruby necklace and hundreds of keys that holds treasures.
On a lighter note, have you done your christmas shopping yet? I haven't and I'm absolutely in scrambles to make a list. My only complaint is that the variety of merchandise have become so generic or is it just me?
Happy Weekend everyone!

Last Saturday, my dad and I held a Thanksgiving/ early christmas party for some of our friends. Our theme was Tex-Mex and it was fun cooking new dishes to serve to a party.
It was my first time to cook Tacos and I had no recipe at all butI tried duplicating the ones from Pancake house. The guests liked these tee hee :)
Wearing a one shouldered jumpsuit for the party. I've been dressing so much casually these days and jumpsuits are an easy way to get dressed in the morning.
Have a great day everyone! 23 days till christmas!
