Monthly Archives: September 2011

I was at Piazza del Duomo (Milan, Italy) on Thursday and Friday (September 22-23, 2011). It was fun walking and seeing people came to the event… The weather was perfect, not too hot… but we had a bit of sunshine… it was such a nice week!

Fashion tent… placed right next to Duomo di Milano






Red Carpet Arrival… I don’t really know who she is… but she looks terrific!






A reporter… someone from Fashion TV






Spectators in the area… good looking, right?






Love those shoes!!!






Teens walked by… they looked great! I love the very left girl. Somehow she reminded me of Amy Winehouse.






This man is really something… isn’t he?






They are male models… (I love Zoolander!!!)






Fashion Press… they really looked like press from Fashion Magazine!






At Piazza del Mercanti – there were 3 models for Mercedes-Benz.






These are security guards!! Seriously… I think they must be through a good looking test!! (hehe)






Italian teens… I happened to see them waiting to enter a show as backstage staff.






Elephant Parade Milano Arts: an event from September 16 to November 15 2011. It is a campaign to protect elephants in Asia. We are seeing elephants with different patterns and colors all over Milan City at this moment.

Here we are at Via Tortona… 2 elephants with flags of 2 big football teams (AC Milan and Inter Milan). It’s so cool!





Buona Settimana (Have great week!)




Yes!! It’s fashion week in Milan, Italy… I am in town and love seeing all the people come from all over the world… These are just snaps I took while walking around Piazza del Duomo (Milan, Italy)

Phi Phi Island (Phi Phi Don)

We had a chance to travel to Phi Phi Island in August 2011. It was difficult to see how the weather would be like. Fortunately, we were there during the good day, no rain — very nice and warm. (August is considered to be a monsoon period for The South of Thailand).

Tourists normally take ferries or speed boat as means of transportation. We decided to take a medium size ferry from Phuket. It took around 90 minutes to reach Phi Phi Don.

The sky was a bit cloudy but bright. The ocean looked emerald green… we loved it!





The picture was taken while we were on a ferry.





We were getting close to the Island… you can see how green the sea water is.





Loh Da Lam Bay… another part of Phi Phi Don





Small boat was floating at Loh Da Lam Bay





Sun bathing and Thai message station… (at Ton Sai Bay)





Bungalows — at Phi Phi Don Island





Small restaurants… just right on the beach.





Tropical Fruits: Durian, Jackfruit, Mango, Coconut, Mangos teens, etc.





Speed boat — small but fast





A ferry … medium size, ours looked similar to this one.





Local noodle restaurant — Ba Mi Som Jit





We had 2 different kinds of noodles – with soup and without soup. They were very tasty!


We really liked this place… Phi Phi Don Island… the ocean on west coast of Thailand looks gorgeous! I would love to be back again!
