YES! I finally passed my driver's exam! Which is bad news for people who do drive since I'm reckless and like to speed (and Asian... just kidding... not really). The scary thing is I know how dangerous a driver I can be and they still gave me a license. Just imagine the daily influx of newly licensed accident-prone mental drivers that are swooshing by grandma Ruth and little Emily. Oh the carnage.....
On a lighter subject (since the last one died), before leaving London, I visited every possible store in town that carried Givenchy in search for the SS12 ready-to-wear men's pleated kilt, hoping that since no one bought them at full price, one or two might still be hanging quietly on the racks under the holy sign "Sale". And as I expected, it was sold out. Every single one of them, the moment they were put on sale, they evaporated due to excessive awesomeness. So who'd known that while sifting through the sale racks in Lane Crawford back in Hong Kong, that I found two pairs (black and beige) that were both in my size. Surprisingly my first kilts/skirts that I owned were in beige and grey, whereas most guys would start off with a black one, so it was not a tough decision to go for it. They're perfect even for summery days, talk about ventilation! This gave new meaning to the phrase "easy breezy" (lift your kilt and be teasy).
