Parties Galore for October

This is continuation of the last entry since I was overly excited about the magazine launch. :) It was surely a busy week. There were so many birthday parties from start to finish aside from the magazine launch during the week.
I would like to send birthday wishes to the following people:
Oct 06 - to my brother, Jay; great treat - gotta love that Jap food!
Oct 10 - to my cousin, Jenilee; it was a rockin' party! Great food and great treats...check out the souvenier picture on the left. :D
Oct 11 - to my BFF, Tam; hope you were "surprised" with the work done by your hubby to celebrate your special day. :) Glad you liked your gift a lot!
Oct 19 - Happy Happy Birthday MOM!!!! I'm so proud to be your daughter! :)
Oct 23 - to my Cuz Ken, Happy Birthday and may you have tons and tons more birthdays to come! :) Great party!
Oct 24 - Happy Birthday, Sister Rhea! May you have many many more birthdays (and maybe babies) to come!
Wishing all of you a wonderful and great year ahead!

This is what I miss about Hong Kong...random invites to interesting shows, previews like this one. Did I tell you that I totally love the new Lane Crawford Home in Pacific Place? Well, I do love it to bits! Every square inch of the store is filled with wonderful and "my styled" furnitures, decors, amenities, etc! Ah...the Luxe Life indeed...
I love the contemporary theme of the place...tres chic!
It's also one of the places to get my fav tea brands, Mariage Freres, from France, which is the tea brand served at Agnes b Cafe and considered one of the best tea brands in the world.
I remember purchasing one of the unique woven pillow covers there too...still looking for the perfect couch to pair it. :P
Lane Crawford Home is an essential visit when you go to HK, especially Pacific Place. :)

My BBF pal, Swong, will be heading to DC next month to start a new chapter (a new life and job). I'm so going to miss her. She's my big sister in HK when I was there all alone so I'll surely feel very lost whenever I go to HK since we had so many cool excursions - Stanley, Discovery Bay, Repulse Bay, Tai Tam, Cybermall, Happy Valley, etc.
Although it would be a nice thing to visit her in DC when the time comes... :D Feature
It's been awhile since I checked out Etsy but I'm glad I did today. I haven't seen the latest season of Project Runway (Season 4) but it was exciting to find out who won, because Etsy wrote an article featuring Etsy items that represent the new winner. So cool! I feel the "eco-beauty" of the creative sellers of the site. :D
**Warning- the article is a big spoiler…so unless you still want to keep Project Runway 4's winner a secret, I suggest you cover your eyes and just check out the sample photos below. :D

My favorites are the following

(1) Micro Tile Hydrangea
(2) Aqua-licious scallop dish
(3) Custom Order, Medium Coffee/Cocktail Table

Do you see a pattern? I sure love my circles and curves. :)

But, hey, for real, I appreciate your comment on! And I hope that with the spread of Crop Dreams, that Filipino culture and talent will become more recognized.
