New Toy in my *Collection*

Many people know that, when I say TOY... I totally mean handbag :D Somehow I just have a big obsession on handbags. I even built a shelf inside my closet just to put all of my Vuitton, Gucci, Dior...

The new toy I got is a bowler style purse from the classic Marc Jacobs line (not the Marc by Marc Jacobs line). It was purchased by a friend who currently working at a "designer" department store, so they get the employee discount for pretty much other stores that is linked to the one that she works for. And of course, Marc Jacobs is one of them. My price was only $400 (about 70% off I believe) :D which is totally unbelievable!

Back to the purse, this is a Patchwork Bowler from Marc Jacobs. Style C372041, in Chocolate. I'm not quite sure if this purse has even been officially released or not, because it had been NO WAY to find any info regard it on google so far. All I found was 1 Japanese site that has its info. Kinda weird... I was soo digging the MJ Patchwork Stam. But anyway, while I like MJ, but I just can't tell myself to put few thousand on his bag. I would rather spend that on another Vuitton or just a Chanel.

It is a pretty good size, just right for all of my junks to sit in it :D

The chain seems very chick. It can be used as a top handles bag or carry on the side with that chain. Though that chain is quite heavy itself IMO.

The signature Marc Jacobs snap button is located on the side of the bag. Not quite noticable.

I had a VERY happy Chinese New Year :D

I have tried to fix the comment feature after several people reported that it does not work at all. And as a *result*, I realized that .. I don't know what happened to it :P At first, I thought maybe it was due to the code that I put in the layout that might have disabled the feature. But after changing it around (even used the regular layout provided by Blogger), the feature still stay disable. So now I certainly don't know what is wrong with it. Maybe blogger doesn't like me ehhh

So the past Saturday night, I went to Mohegan Sun casino with my mom and some coworkers. And of course, it has tired me out BADLY since we stayed there till 5.30am the next day, and I headed back to work at 8am. So all I got was that little 2 hours sleep on the bus :D Though, like usual, I did not gamble at all. I guess it just isn't my thing after all. We went there mainly for a concert, a Taiwanese band called *SuperBand* (縱貫線). It is actually featured four mid-aged men *LOL So all of those music they have played was pretty much from my childhood :P

It been crazy busy at work for the past few weeks, though I still had a VERY good Chinese New Year. This year I have got 91 red envelopes, with total of $1029!!! (Plus $110 In-Store coupons from my cheapo boss) So this will be my petty cash to spend in my trip to Hong Kong, Thailand and Korea in April :D

New *Phonbie* Obsession

The Chinese New Year is coming soon, so it been crazy busy at work recently :/ Of course, making those extra $$ is always good, but it certainly tired me out soooo much *grr*

So anyway, recently I have a new obsession on those Japanese bling phone case. I found some really cute custom made ones on eBay from a Thai seller. However, she can not find a case for my phone. So I ended up DIY 2 for myself :] It does takes lot of time though, so now I do understand why did she charge like $60 for just a phone case.....

This is the 1st one I have made. It was mainly pink/sliver color. I bought a pack of 10 of those bears. And of course BUNCH of rhinestones.

This is the 2nd case I have made. Indeed, I do like this one more actually. As you can see, it was mostly black. And I tried to add vary shades of purple to make it looks sexier :P

After making these 2 cases, I still have enough stuff to make probably few more cases. I will probably make 1 for my DSi, and then make some for iphone and sell it on eBay :D
