Just this past Saturday, I decided to bring out my very vintage Bruno Magli ostrich leather bag with me. It used to be mom's, but when one of my sisters volunteered to clean up mom's closet she decided to take it. When it wasn't "in" anymore she got bored with it and now it's mine. Fashion comes, fashion goes. I'm always the basket for hand-me-downs... but I'm not complaining.
I'm surprised it's still in very good condition even after all these years.
I've noticed that many of my posts start with "this weekend..." Anyway, this weekend my brother and his friends planned to surprise Tim and Mary, my brother's friends who are both celebrating their birthdays soon, under the guise of a Mooncake party (complete with moon cakes and dice bowl games.) Tim was the guy we took photos of with the graffiti wall, and Mary is kind of like my brother's best girl friend. They all belong in the same group. They've been friends forever. To make it seem more special, my brother decided to bake up a bunch of cupcakes, which I ended up doing more of since we both know I can't leave him in the kitchen. He can be a havoc sometimes.
We even put up chinese lanterns outside to add some chinese flavor, since the Mooncake festival is a very traditional Chinese thing...
Good food and company always makes me wish that weekends never end. Now we have to get back to work.
