Hello spring

So, where have I been? Well, in the last post I explained to you about my work new development. Soon after that I planned to resume regular blog posting but then out of no where both of my finger nails (left and right) became infected. Apparently it is pretty common, this "hang nail" issue. But try not to goggle or search on YouTube about DIY treatment. I found some pretty unpleasant videos of how people would remove the infection themselves (major ouch factor).
Anyway long story short, I practically was disabled for a few days with sore and swollen fingers. You also realised how important just missing one of your fingers is like. Typing, writing, opening up a bottle or even washing my hair was so painful. It's been several days and they are finally starting to get better. What a great start of spring eh?
On the brighter note, we will be travelling to Osaka, Japan in less than a week time for a family reunion trip. Parents, brother and his wife are all going to meet there (from different countries). I have never been to Osaka and I heard it is a food lovers heaven (hello? food!) so I am really excited about it. I will update you with hopefully with lots of Instagram pictures so stay tuned. In the meantime, I am smiling because spring is finally here (plus I finally have functional fingers again).

Tree wall for Happy Hour

Work has really been busy and stressful these days. Last time I told you we were expanding so things were getting a bit messy with all the equipments coming in.....wrapping papers, boxes, bubble wraps etc. Being a neat freak this is like one of my worst nightmares. I am constantly chasing after the workers to pick up things they had left behind on the ground. They definitely felt like I was a crazy lady! Then just when all the hardwares were installed, there came with the delima with software. We needed to upgrade not only our current electronic system, our current PCs were just not cutting it. So off we went to shop for desktop, scanner, better bigger monitors etc. I feel like we have been just spending money and running around for various items. The life of a business owner....
Last night at the end of the day we were exhausted and starving. We decided to just hop into the closest cafe to have early dinner. Surprisingly they were offering Happy Hour so we gladly obliged and ended the day with a giant slice of lemon cake (yummy).
One of my Instagram friends commented that she'd never seen me in monochromatic colour before. I was feeling amused when I read her comment but then as I scrolled through my stock pictures, she was RIGHT! I was always in some sort of colours, normally bright colours too. Well, I guess this is one of the rarest outfits you'd see me in, grey and black :) Thanks for your patience listening to me rant. Fingers crossed for our upcoming development at the office :)

Crisp spring air

We are having the warmest February I can remember! Blame it on global warming but one can't help but feel slightly "lucky" to have such nice and sunny end of winter days here in Portland. All the cherry blossom trees have been "tricked" and they are in full bloom right now. I will have to snap some pictures and show them to you before they are all gone!
I also have not been wearing my Balenciaga motorcycle jackets that much this winter. I remember when I first bought them more than two years ago I practically was living in them (yes them, I have two). Since they are the most expensive clothing items I have in my closet, I am careful on when to take them out. Being as rainy as Portland can be, as you can imagine I don't get to wear them that often. Anyway, I think it's now safe to bring them out again. The best thing about these jackets on a warmer winter days is they look better unzipped. I think my new necklaces are happier this way too.
More work stuff this week. It is going to be a mess this week as we organised everything in my office but hopefully everything will go smoothly! Have a lovely week and thanks for reading! <3
