Broken Promise

Hi readers!!! i feel bad saying this, but i'm going to break my promise. i'm postponing my trip pictures posts because i didnt get the chance to resize them all yet. some are done, but it's like batches here and there, and its gonna be too confusing for me to organize afterwards, so i would rather wait until every single picture is done before posting any. those on my facebook will be more privileged as i will post more there. =]

so this post will be about this and that... scattered things and random subjects all mixed together, hope you dont mind.

for those who are closer to me, you have probably heard me b*tch about how i lost my Burberry Border Check in Candy Check right? i dont remember very clearly, but i think it was some time before the holidays. it happened after a dinner with my family at our regular restaurant in chinatown. i dont know how it happened, i probably forgot it there and some random girl must have found it and claim it hers (you shall perish in hell!!). i loved that scarf so much, because it's vintage 2007 and also because it was matching my boyfriend's Blue Bell one. =( BUT because 2009 has just started and asian new year is in a few days, i will be nice and forgive the heartless girl. 

my boyfriend's so awesome, he gave me a new one for Xmas! wheeeee =D he got me the Burberry Giant Check cashmere scarf. he bought one for himself as well, so we're matching again!! Yay! yes me and my bf like to match..hehehe mine is the lighter one, the specific color is Trench Check and his is in the fashion house's regular nova check colors.



i got him these for Xmas...so he could match with my Guccissima peeptoes =D he looks hot wearing them.


another gift from baby. Miss Sixty leather boots. he was debating whether he should buy high heeled boots or these, but ended up getting these since he said i had too many high heeled ones.

some awesome gift from my little sister!!! "No Paparazzi" beauty sleep mask in shiny silver. i was sporting these on the plane during my trip because, well, i rock =D

Pink crystal studded luggage tag that slung on my Neverfull the whole time i was away. (btw, my bag doubled fine as a carry-on. it held so much: New Moon hardcover, wallet, mini pochette accessoires, leather makeup case, mesh makeup case, shawl, huge noise canceling headphones, a spare velour hoodie etc etc)

Chocolate recipe cards! yay! she knows i like to bake...even though i dont really know how... well except for cupcakes. =)




picked these awesome magazines at Narita Aiport, oh how i loveeeee japanese mags. they are full of outfit pictures, kawaii stuff and also jammed with makeup tutorials. they didnt have my favorite one though, Vivi. also, i pay the regular price when i buy there (which is about 4-5$ USD), unlike when i buy them in montreal, they run for about 30$ CAD. and maybe you guys did not notice it, but Japan is one of the few countries who gets new releases, handbag-wise, before everybody else. i think their fashion is really advanced. for example, fringes were in for them in 2006-2007 i think and was only featured as a trend on our runways for fall 08. 

*oh and also, the models are so damn pretty that i wanna suicide when i look at myself in the mirror afterwards T_T"*

Sweet magazine included a Charlotte Ronson pink leopard tote. yay! perfect as a lunch bag as it is not that huge or to pair with a white summer dress =) leopard + pink = l o v e 

***EXCITED*** in this February issue of CanCam, i spotted these pages. the new vernis handbag and colors caught my eyes instantly! the coin purse is adorable too. i loved them at first sight! so on Tuesday, i decided to call my LV store here in Montreal to inquire about it. the Wilshire Boulevard bag (1st picture & 2nd picture) is not yet released here. i am, once again, the 1st on the waiting list. about the Heart Coin Purse, it's out and sold out already, so i'm also on the waiting list for that one. both items are going to be in Rose Pop. the SA told me i will be notified as soon as the store receives them. i'm so excited and happy!!! i cannot wait. i know my boyfriend is not as content as myself because i just got 2 handbags for my bday. but i asked him really really nicely if i could buy it and he said yes. well...i called LV and got waitlisted first and then asked him..but that's just a tiny detail right? =)
the kawaii Wilshire Boulevard in Rose Pop Vernis
yup, she's holding the one i want! in Rose Pop. it totally looks like candy. =)

i guess it will be all for today's update! see you ladies later!

p.s. don't get near me, i'm slowly getting sick. sore throat, coughing & crap. =(

Fly...

sorry for not posting as often as i'd like to. my schedule has been more than crazy in the last few days. i left Montreal on the 30th at freaking 3:00 in the morning and got to Trudeau at 4. since its an international flight, the 3 hours are a must for all the baggage checkins and customs and boarding procedures. i really have no patience at all, and the waiting in line just totally killed me. i flew from Montreal to Dallas (Fort Worth Airport) for the first transfer. we usually take Japan Airline at Chicago, but that path was all booked, so we HAD to take AA, which i totally HATE!!! the positive side was there was practically no waiting at Dallas though and we didnt need to change gates. then from there, we took another AA plane to Narita Aiport (Tokyo), the flight was a killer flight that kept us a whole 13 hours and a half at 58 000 ft in the air. i've done it numerous times before, but my bum never really got used to it and was hurting like there's no tomorrow. although it hurt, just thinking i'd be shopping at the japanese airport made me happy! we had a total of 2 hours there, but the line-up for our new boarding passes took us like forever so we only had a mere 30 minutes left for shopping there and getting to our gate. umm...yeah walked around the stores...we had like 5-10 minutes for each store, so it was more like flying through them...cant even call that walking. in the end, my mom only bought a Shu Uemura lash curler for me. looked at the watch, and it was already boarding time. so we headed to our gate, thinking it was somewhat nearby...HA, nearby my ass, it was like 54745214365468431 miles away from the shopping area! suddenly, i heard a lady call out the last warning for our flight, only then we realized how late we were. almost 15 minutes late. we RAN through the hall to our gate, we were greeted by a JAL hostess standing waving at us like crazy. they checked our boarding passes in such a hurry, they probably wouldnt even realize if we were missing one. ran to the plane, then hurried to our seats. put everything in the overhead compartment, sat down, buckled our belts...and within not even 2 minutes, the plane roared to life...that means, the whole plane was waiting on us...and only us! haha we nearly missed it. pheww....that was a close one. so the flight from Japan to Hanoi was only 6:00...thats nothing, i really enjoyed my flight, cause it was JAL =) the stewardess are always very courteous and polite and they're all very pretty too. oh and the meals are always excellent. nobody beats Japan Airlines (i tried a few, AirCanada, Canjet, Air Transat, American Airlines, American Eagle, British Airways, Air France, Thai Airways, Vietnam Airlines). arrived at Noi Bai International Airport at approximately 10pm-ish. went through customs in a blink but the waiting at the baggage claim was a little hectic. 2 planes came in at the same time, ours and the other one was from Korean Air, the area was jam packed...great! more people AND more waiting. the baggage claim is always a stressful time for me, i'm always scared they lose my stuff, or people stealing my luggage. but all ended well, after around 45 mins, we were out, warmly greeted by our extended family! the smile on their faces made me forget about my 28 hours+ journey. =) i was happy to see them too.

we stayed at the Sofitel Plaza in Hanoi, was only in the city for 4 days though...time flew by real quick, i'm now already in HoChiMinh Ville. will upload some pix from Hanoi in a few days. i'll keep you guys posted. this post was mainly for the flight and stuff. next one will be on Hanoi...and when i come back, it'll be about HCM.

see you soon!

p.s. Happy Belated New Year =) i wish you all the best of luck and health and wealth for 2009! please be well.

***edit: looks like i've made numerous mistakes with some details such as flight lengths in my post, got scolded by my little sister (who has better memory than i).
