I believe in pink

Everything is good in the holiday except the bad weather. It’s raining SATURDAY, SUNDAY, MONDAY, TUESDAY… It’s only a couple days away from Christmas, and then New Year 2016? What did you receive for Christmas gifts? I am definitely looking forward to my 4th Christmas after my marriage. We are so busy these days, mostly with shopping, dinner, and whatever you can think for enjoying the holiday. It’s been such a busy holiday season, and at the same time, we are so thankful for this holiday full of feelings of joy, love, and peace. I have been lagging on my emails and other social media update. Maybe I can get back into my regular routine after Christmas!

I have received a formal dress as a gift from one of my friends. That is surprising as I used to get presents like flowers or cosmetics. My friend has changed her job to MillyBridal,a wedding dress design company located in UK. They really have some masterpieces that I would be love to show you. The color I am in love with is the wedding dresses UK collection in pink rather than the traditional white. The other day I went to do my nails.  I have chatted a lot with the two ladies sat near me, one a young girl in her early 20s, the other one a very old lady. At the end, we found out all of us chose pink colors for our nails! My point is, we love pink, no matter what age we are!

“I believe in pink.I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner.  I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls.  I believe that is another day and I believe in miracles.” —-Audrey Hepburn

Dinner Time

The gardens south of the Yangtze River are the best under Heaven, and among them the gardens of Suzhou are the Best. These gardens are famous for their tranquil and serene environment, refined layout and exquisite Building skills. Lately I’ve been starting to feel as if I’m growing tired of Suzhou gardens. It feels as if we’ve been everywhere before and tried everything before. When friends come to visit, I find myself suggesting the same restaurants we’ve eaten at a million times. In the areas which I’ve been visited many times last year, the humble administrator's Garden and the Lingering Garden my favorites. But I have started to feel tired and stagnant. I visit them and feel the familiarity of every garden, nothing or nowhere new.
Of course this isn’t really the case. I know that. One thing Suzhou could never be described as is stagnant – it is constantly changing and evolving, and new places, spots and eateries are always arriving. Chengpin bookstore has an opening ceremony last week. Walking down the shopping mall full of cute cafe’s and pubs with customers spilling out onto the streets, I started to feel that giddy excitement that comes with visiting somewhere new that you just know you’re going to love.

So I guess it’s not Suzhou to blame for being tired but us. This year, we’ve got busy. REAL busy. Time is precious, and any of it that is going spare comes with the added pressure of needing to be spent wisely and not wasted. We no longer seem to have the hours free to seek out the new or the exciting or the blink and you’ll miss it, and even when we do, we don’t seem to have the energy to enjoy them. Instead of being at the front of the pack – trying out the new places before anyone else has and passing on the recommendations to others – we’re at the back – taking those recommendations to make sure when, on the rare occasion, we do eat out we’re heading somewhere that’s worth our time and our spend. Life seems to have got in the way, and Suzhou has become just a place to live rather than a place to explore.
