A Simple White Shirt – Part Five

Living in Perth, Western Australia in my late teens, one day, in the public Conversation Room at the language school where I attended my English classes, I met Linda, a lady who was also from Taiwan. We clicked straight away and became very good friends. Between 37 and 18, yes, Linda and I had a […]

Throwback The ’90s – The Carwash Pleat Dress

‘Carwash Pleat Dress’?? What a weird and unflattering name for a fashion style! Well, perhaps not so strange after all for those of us who have been to the drive-through car wash service… Remember the multi-slit-curtain hanging down to wipe over the car? Yes!

Throwback The ’90s – The ‘Tuck It In’ Trend

Before today I had resisted to blog about any comeback trend from the ’90s.., well, I’ve been there and done that! However, there are some trends I’d […]

Celebrating The Precious Italian Preserved Tomato @ Oro Rosso Luncheon

My friends who have known me for a long time would have heard that one of my big dreams has been to own a villa in an Italian village. My dream Italian villa has a large backyard and it’s full of tomato bushes and olive trees and there, I’d enjoy a country life full of […]

An Autumn Day In Sydney

Last Friday, on my precious day off, I met up with two of my female friends for an overdue catch up over brunch at a cafe in the city. We talked about travel, and wished we could be in New York; Milan; Prague… Basically any other cool city rather than Sydney. Is this human nature? […]
