The Busty Beauties!

P R A D A. The bust area seemed to be the focal point of the collection for the most part. Satin piping, stuffed and about an inch or so thick, contouring the breasts from below. Layers of ruffles over the breasts making them quite full while the rest of the garment left subdued and undecorated. In some cases, just below the ruffled bust line, there was a cut out exposing skin (loved that!). The girls went down the runway looking like stern 60's no-nonsense librarians with a confident sense of sexuality.

You wouldn't want to send your pubescent young son to the local public library with these girls on shift. The girls sported huge chignon bun of the 60's and 70's. The hair reminded me of a scene from Mommy Dearest when Jone visits Tina in her apartment. An extremely focused collection which is to be expected — Prada never fails in that regard. The cut outs, thick satin piping, and overt focus on the breast distanced the collection from being literal of the 60's.

Smog Issue



So you can see some of the bad air quality in Shanghai...

Yeah, I'm a Geek...

One reason I'm in Shanghai is because it's an exciting time for this city's architecture. I'm fascinated by this skyscrapers. I used to check that website even while I'm at work to see the world's latest, tallest skyscrapers to come. When I'm walking back to my hotel everyday, I can see the Shanghai World Financial Center building undergoing construction. It's huge!

I Got the Keys!

So, Friday afternoon I sat down with my agent, Linda and the landlords of the apartment, nice polite people, to sign the contract and lease for my new apartment. I have the keys now and will move in on Wednesday! After all that struggle!

The apartment is the best out of all that I looked at actually. Doesn't have the best view out of all of them, but the apartment itself is great! 1 bedroom, nice modern furniture, HUGE flat screen TV, washing machine... for less than $500 USD/month and in a semi-gated compound with tons of parks and a huge creek/river running through it (a popular compound in Shanghai). I could never imagine living like this in NYC for that price.

Will post pics later on Monday I think.

American Express Travelers Cheques

I'm really upset with AmEx. When I asked them (when i bought them in New York) if I would have any trouble cashing these cheques in for Chinese cash in China, they assured me I could go to any major bank to do it. That turned out to be a lie. Major banks like Citi and HSBC are not in that network system and don't provide that service here in China. I had to call the AmEx in Hong Kong to find out exactly where I could cash in the check and they gave only 3 locations! My agent called these 3 and they did not provide this service or no one answered the phone. I needed the cheques to make the payments for the apartment.

With no help from dAmnEx, my amazing agent, Linda, was able to call around and found out that Bank of China can do it. But the day we went there, there system was down and not working right (just my luck, huh?). So we went back the next day and I was finally able to cash in those dAmnEx travelers cheques.

AmEx sucks! And they're liars!

Playas will be Playas

So, ok... this guy called Hayes was like "hi sexy, what you up to? like to play with you really". Then I was like "um... no. i'm not looking to 'play' ". Then he was all like "ok, date would be nice to me. just need cuddle babe".

First, of all, don't call me 'babe'! Second, just cuddling?... YEAH RIGHT! I might have been born yesterday, but I stayed up all night, God-damn-it!

I guess playas are the same where ever you are in the world...
