hello hello hello! i finally have some down time to check my email and of course tpf! i also just posted at my challenge thread. i felt a little lost without all my chanel goodies at first, but prada is really a lifesaver when i'm on the road. i love their high tech fabric that makes their suits wrinkle free and appropriate for all seasons. so basically i pack up all of my standard black prada wear and i'm good for all business meetings. when not working i've been toting my dk brown prada nylon messenger bag. the zippered compartments make a great organization system for my digi cam, blackberry, notepad, etc. I really have to take my hat off to you ladies here in Asia...how the heck do you get used to the heat and humidity here!! I would be terrified to wear my Chanel goodies since I feel drenched just standing still!
As for the food, it has been totally amazing everywhere! I try to get out and eat street food as much as the gourmet stuff just so I have a try of everything. I'm eating like a pig but feel absolutely no remorse, haha! the heat must have ramped up my metabolism or something...but i'm eating 24/7! perhaps it's also b/c I do a lot more walking here than when I'm in LA.
I've been so inspired by the Montagnards (mountain tribal ethnic minority groups) I encountered on my last hike the last few days. The colors in their clothes and accessories have inspired me to do better on my Chanel du jour challenge when I get back!
