While the man was checking out the 5.1 home theatre system which he hopes to get for his birthday that is less than a month away, I have been looking online for some great ideas on how to wrap presents the d-i-y way. Yes, there are many presents to be wrapped for Christmas and birthdays coming up. I was browsing the internet and came upon this really neat gift wrap idea from Manmadediy.com. Just use a plain craft paper and cut out the alphabets of the recipient’s name from books that you do not want. I like this idea very much and I am going to give it a try.

How was your weekend everyone? We just got back from a short break. It was fun to go away to relax and de-stress. Right after we came home, we had dinner with some friends. While the women were chatting about kids and shopping, the men were busy talking about the latest cars in town. Then their conversation focused on the best radar detectors as one of our friends just bought one. The men were discussing on the various brands available and which highway has the most speed traps. My husband is hoping that Santa would bring him a radar detector this Christmas. As for me, losing ten pounds is my wish list.

While my husband was talking on the phone with his brother about sirius satellite radio, I was at the computer doing some online shopping for clogs. I heart clogs. A wardrobe staple during the summer, the clogs are still highly popular in winter. We just need to wear it with a pair of heavy patterned socks or tights. Would you wear them in the cold months? I adore the clogs from www.miljoshop.com.

I am going crazy over the kids’ collection at J Crew. I feel like buying everything for my daughter. Their collection is simply awesome. I love their tops, skirts, shorts and dresses. Not forgetting their fabulous ballet flats for girls. Oh I am just giddy with excitement. There is so much to buy but so little money. Here are a few of my favourite outfits.

A friend of mine who has just completed the funeral planning for her pet last weekend is still grieving. In order to take her mind off the sad episode, I asked her to watch the 43rd TVB Anniversary Awards online with me. She is a big fan of the Hong Kong TVB dramas like me and she was looking forward to this show too. Unfortunately she was too busy over the weekend with the funeral that she missed it. Though I already know who the winners are, I still want to watch it because I want to see the fashion worn by my favourite actors and actresses. I read that Toby Leung wore an interesting dress that night which looks like there is shirt wrapped around her waist. Can’t wait to watch the 43rd TVB Anniversary Awards online now.
