Thanksgiving 2009. My first time to celebrate this American tradition.

Jason, Shannon and Loven

Eating pumpkin is traditional, non?

Eliz and Faith

Loven made a wonderful tablescape complete with graphic table runners.

The food were divine!

I stuffed myself silly.

Sheree was here for a visit!

I love Sheree. She's so beautiful inside and out.

We had customized pillows for all the guests!

Eliz in front of Loven's new artwork.

There's so much in my life that I'm thankful for and one of those is having a group of wonderful friends.

My CdG Heart

I was really thrilled when Gibo gave me this CdG shirt, an addition to my ever expanding collection of white shirts.

Lately, I've been wearing non-stop this spike number that I picked from JJ and this Marc by Marc Jacobs snake bangle that Eliz gave me. I wished I picked more of those spikes. It's really cheap!

Our shop assistant

We encourage individuality in our shop assistants at Poetry. We even ask them to create one-of-a-kind jewelry for Loven's Earth Project, jewelry made of recycled materials and found objects. Ryan here had this ensembles a few moons ago and I thought I'd share it wth you since I think it's cool.

Slashed black tee with safety pin detail layered over a white tee. It goes well with his tattered denim jeans. To complete the look, a DP gladiator/boots shoes.

Can someone get these for moi?

I want to get back issues of Zucca's e-mooks.

Sooner the Better

As blogged by Chuvaness, the Le Pliage suit bag.

As seen in Longchamp, the Le Pliage 'Colonel' bag. The size I wanted wasn't available so I need to wait.

Christmas 2009

How was your Christmas?

Mine officially started when we had a cantata at church. I invited my bff Eliz to see it and she came.

It was really fun. Loven and Faith directed the choir and I took care of the costume. So festive in green and red, non?

Tapos in the evening we had dinner at church. For the gift-giving I wrapped mine like that. It's still so very moi, right?

Been feeling colors and brights. I'm quite shocked myself that I'm doing colorblocking for my collection for this fashion show I'm doing on new year's eve. That's why I've been wearing bright colors these past weeks.

The Love group guys presented a song number. I think we stole the spotlight from Clave who was the lead singer (in red). We were back-up dancers. It was tres, tres fun!

Then Christmas eve we had a party at home with a lot of international friends. Here I'm with Kim from New York (who brought Adam), and Liz. The CFI guys Pierre and Romain with their friends also came. We also invited Agnes and her husband Stefan, who will be migrating to Melbourn soon. John and his girlfriend was there, too. It was a shame Laddang, Sophea and Michael didn't come.

The latest Reaper, Leigh of New York!

Leigh took this picture of me and Connor (from L.A.) who was so into his cake.

Eliz, Romain, Pierre and Kimberly.

The next day, the CFI guys invited us for lunch at Abacus, a sort of celebration for their successful program here in Cambodia. CFI is Coalition for Financial Independence.

I forgot to take a picture of the delicious salmon mouse with seaweeds for the little palate teaser. Then for starters I had this smoked salmon salad. So simple yet so delish!

For my main I opted for fish on top of crab fillet. I forgot what the sauce is called but it was very mildly flavored.

Then dessert came as vanilla and chocolate mouse log. Had champagne and red wine. A lot!

It was so nice to let our hair down after all the Christmas preparations we did.

Moi and Eliz.

Leigh and Connor wanted to check out the thriftshops so I brought them to Sah Krolayn market and the thriftstore near Bodia Spa. Leigh got some stuff she will use for her color stories while Connor got a shirt, tie and pants for his New Year outfit. Then we three headed to Picasso and had cocktails.

From cocktails I went home and had another dinner party with the Love group. There's Cielo, Faith, Nika and Sreynea.

Nika's daughter Apso is so chic, non?

The kids: Apso, Freedom, Isak, Bryce and Brandon

Moi, Blady, Richard, Rattana and Loven. I showed them the videos of my fashion shows. There were lots of gifts being passed around. I'm so glad I'm not working this holiday season unlike last year.

Hope you had a good one!:)
