Judging the pounds of coffee beans with a finger

Blue coat:vintage,ebay.com
YSL shirt:online store
Accessories:all old/new

Thanks Valerie for the photos~

It rained so heavily this morning when I woke up.
Knowing the weather would be cold,time to throw on my coat!
Even though weather here is not as cold
like overseas,but I couldn't care less.

How I wished we have fall weather here too.
But sadly,weather is is either rain or shine.
All those chunky knit wear and huge scarves would come in place.
And winter,there's snow !!

But I still like tropical weather at times.
Guess everything has its pros and cons.

I was so so happy today!
If you all followed me on twitter,today was my company's
lady boss's birthday.
She is like Ice queen,really stern and cold.

But just about I was going to end work,she called me up.
When I walked in to her office,out came a red packet.
A red packet is something where people put money in.
Its given normally during our Chinese New Year,birthdays,wedding dinners etc.

And she was really generous !
She gave me $50!
Wow,that's a surprise to me,what a sweet treat.

My pay is due today,but my bank reads zero.
Ahhhh,I can't wait to go shopping.

What's on everyone's shopping list now ?

I always love oversized shirt + leggings + slouchy coat, it's chic but laid-back!
