Happy New Year (again)!





I just got back from Temple. Sy's cousin, Linh, wanted to dress in the traditional Vietnamese "ao dai" so I obliged. It's part dress and part pants. You can't eat much, if anything at all when you're wearing it. You have to suck it in and push "Betty and Susie" up to look good. The things we women do to look our very best.

I wish everyone good health, prosperity, success in achieving your resolutions and goals for the year. You guys have inspired me to dress a little better and be a little more feminine. I'm working on the not slouching part...I'm already short so no need to lose a couple of inches needlessly. :)

That blemish under my lower lip was self-inflicted. It was a little miniscule pimple that I tried to excavate from my face...not with much success as you can tell.

Thanks. You wouldn't believe how many possible patterns and colors available for ao dais.
