I today

Is it because of my new pink Dior nail polish? Hmmm, maybe. When weeks pass by like days and leaves fallen off trees before I even notice, pretty nail polish remains my comfort spot. I have been very adventurous lately, trying on new colors like jade, hot pink, and red. Truly rare for someone who swore by pale pink and french manicure for years. Now where is this post going? The point is, there's no such thing as too much pink or too many nail polish!

Status: Employed

Haven't updated in a week. In the last seven days, I bought a very pretty jade color nail polish, reviewed all too many OMs, almost got over a terrible cold, but the best part? Well, a full-time offer two month before the end of my internship. I haven't sign the contract yet but it sure feels good thinking about my business card, my profile on the company website and the fact I can finally stop job hunting for a while......

Sadly there's no time to celebrate since my life is and will be dominated by CFA for the next six weeks or so. I'm thinking of getting myself a nice present if i pass, hmmmmm what should I go for?

Only if I can wear them to work..

To satisfy McQueen shoe mania and height complex at the moment, and for your amusement:

Fall into a Garden

Just like how I feel about the season. Only, the color tone adds a bit of warmth....

Sometimes, we just need a little reminder of the love and support we have in life. At least that's what get me up in the morning ;)

When life start at 6 am with GAAP, SEC regulations, and "going concern" assumptions, I truly, sincerely, do not have much to blog about. Wait, maybe I can write about the fact that I spent three hours number crunching then writing about a metal plating company only to find out that it is off the market? Oh how sad, all the opportunities we miss in life.

Oh one more thing, I recently spotted this photo from someone's blog. It caused a huge urge to re-arrange my place accordingly. Forgive the lack of imagination and blatant copying, my reading corner almost looks like this now, which is super uber.
At last, I give you Alexander McQueen Paris 2009, for your amusement only ;)

I had Chocolate Éclair for dessert tonight. Two, in fact. There's something very comforting about cream filled pastry. It reminds of me this particular kind that I ate as a kid, always on a train. I can't remember why that memory is associated with train, like it was the only place that sold that dessert. The pre-sealed package contained two pieces of seashell shaped dough filled with cream. The dough was always too thick and never crisp. I can't even remember what the cream filling tasted like, but the dessert itself was nonetheless fascinating, especially to a little Chinese girl who has never seen cannoli, Éclair, or a profiterole.

Little things like this make me think about how much have changed. Ming always says that he could hardly remember life before "us", the memory is so distant that it feels like a different lifetime. I think I'm starting to understand that now. As strange as it sounds...
