February is the shortest month of the year; however, this short month contains some major world-wide events, such as: the Valentine’s Day we have just celebrated; Chinese Lunar New Year (it’s often in February), and if you love fashion or movies or both – I love both – you’d carefully mark the Academy Awards ceremony TV broadcast date and time on your February calendar just like me!
February, some say that it’s a romantic month; I say that February is a month of celebration.
Right now I have the upcoming Chinese New Year to look forward to, a close friends Yum-Cha (飲茶) gathering is on the way. What to wear? I think this year I’m going for my modern floral QiPao (旗袍) instead of the head-to-toe red ensemble.
February is also my birth month. Since my beloved grandmother passed away, I stopped throwing birthday parties of my own.., what I’ve learnt from it is, attending others’ birthday parties is just as much fun as celebrating your own – with less stress and a lot less work as a bonus!
This February I received an invitation to a ‘Sydney celebrity’ stylist’s birthday bash. Although I haven’t decided what to wear yet, I plan to have a great time!
Each February…I always dream of hosting an ‘Oscars Themed Party’ on Oscars night. Having guests walk the red carpet, some guests playing the paparazzi; snapping away at the ‘stars’ when they arrive. In my dream; we have champagne and nibbles while watching the ceremony on a giant TV, and during the advertisements, we all take turns to stand up and share our acceptance speech, ‘…thank you to my hairdresser; thank you to my stylist…’
So, who’s got a big house and a large screen TV that I can borrow? 😉
February… there’s only 12 days to go this February! Don’t forget to live this shortest month in style even if it means taking a bath and catching your old cat’s fleas!
