I am Vietnamese, and yes I DO celebrate it! (So do Koreans!) The difference being in my culture is that we celebrate the Year of the CAT, instead of the BUNNY. :( Which I am terribly disappointed in because bunnies are my favourite animals, and well cats... I'm not too fond of them.
Cat-ny, Buncat?.. -.-"
The pic up there is myself in a traditional Vietnamese, "Ao Dai." I decided to well red to match the lunar new year theme colour. :) (Usually Vietnamese brides wear red for their wedding as well!) And if you're thinking that your eyesight might have gotten a bit worse.. don't worry, I blurred my face 'lightly' for privacy reasons! LOL
Vietnamese Girls in Ao Dai(s)
The 'Ao Dai' comes in a sorts of colours and styles. The picture above shows the traditional simple version. Amazingly, the Ao Dai is becoming an international fashion trend. It was used in the Miss Universe pageant recently where all the contestants don a unique Ao Dai.

I love how the Ao Dai can make ANY woman look so elegant, and classy. :)
Other great news, I was able to snag a sample of the Hello Kitty fragrance at Sephora that was launched last month.
I actually do love the smell, its gentle and sweet. But I must question whether $64CAD is worth it for a small bottle..... It's very cute thought! Wah :'(
I'm not too crazy about the collection (which is a VERY good thing for my wallet). It's overpriced, and the quality isn't top-notched as I would like it to be.
Anyways, I know it's been too long since I have last 'pooped' out a blog. It's currently past midnight on Sunday (or technically MONDAY, groan.) And my body is slowly shutting down on me. (Yes, I'm not really a night person. I love/need my sleep!)
Toodless ! ~
