i'm in love...and always will be.

the four mini-cakes that made me smile. and made me forget all my worries and frustrations. one or two is nice but four? i love it! and i couldn't ask for more. we had lunch at our fave vietnamese restaurant, lemon grass and ordered all the food we could stuff our faces with -- spicy and sour seafood soup, grilled spare ribs and pad thai noodles. it's so funny because harry ordered two bottles of light beer and got tipsy right after! he was wobbling a bit in broad daylight!


i'd like to thank everyone for the sweet advice and comments on my previous post. after letting it all out, i rationalized the situation and decided to take the high road. i am their team leader and i realized that i have yet again expected too much maturity from my team. they need guidance. they need to be seen on the same level. i have decided to not ignore them but to help them. so last night, after hearing them rant (again!), i took a deep breathe, sat beside them and looked them in eye, asking what exactly happened. i wrote a serious e-mail, asking for help from the managers and will be taking it from there.
*crossing my fingers and still wishing they won't rant so much* 

received an adequate amount of tax refund for the year 2009 and had to splurge on shoes. new to my lovies -- zebra printed bow flats, tan flats and  'matthews' peep toe heels.

striped shirt - thrifted
blue cropped jacket - thrifted
black leggings - ???
grey flats with zebra printed bow - sm dept store
black bag - lil' sister's
black belt with animal printed buckle - big sister's (haha!)
sunnies - thrifted at carbon
rings - props
