My 2011

It's a little too late to write about the year 2011 - I barely write any summary type of articles (I'm so bad at it). But I guess 2011 was just, an eventful and special year to me.

Shanghai, Beijing, Indiana, Florida, London, Edinburgh... I miss all these places where I had great memories.

Shanghai was amazingly fun, as always. I saw some friends I didn't see for over ten years. They looked the same, but somehow different.

Beijing was good and bad. I have a love/hate relationship with that city. I don't know how people live in such a huge but messy place - it could take 20 min to just cross the street. Although some of my best memories occurred in Beijing in my early 20s. Now every time I go there, it's like visiting that period time of my life.

Fireworks in Disney, Borough Market in London, the castles and whiskey bars in Edinburgh...

There were shames.. I planned to go to Lijiang and Morocco, but couldn't make it. Hope I can go this/next year, and blog about them..

Speaking of writing... I started this novel Manhattan Moonlight (in Mandarin) around June.  I started slow and it became... really slow! Sometimes I wish I could be more focused, or, alone.

This summary is becoming so boring.. ahhhh I guess I AM really bad at this. Why did I even start? (sigh face)

Dinner at Griffou

It was my girl friend Grace's birthday so we had a group dinner at Hotel Griffou in west village. The block of 9th St between 5th and 6th Ave, on which the restaurant located, was surprisingly quiet, nice, filled with the old New York-ish townhouses.

Grace brought her own flowers and did the settings herself - she's a great event designer!

London, London, London

Few weeks ago I went to London to visit my friends from college and high school. It was a very fun and memorable trip...

My favorite area - Notting Hill, where Portobello Market is located at...

Story behind the signs on the lampposts in Westminster - Coco Chanel and Hugh Grosvenor, 2nd Duke of Westminster...

I came all the way from the other side of the world, just for the moment of passing by you.

Beautiful New Counter

If you haven't been to La Prairie's new flagship counter at Saks Fifth Ave in New York City, you need to go see how glam it looks. Classic, clean, simply beautiful.
