This is the third year Danny Bunyavong has taken part in the Macy’s Glamorama runway. Macy’s 2011 annual Glamorama benefit for the Children’s Cancer Research Fund was another blowout extravaganza with performances from Bruno Mars and Far East Movement and fashions from the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Jacobs, Jean Paul Gaultier, Sonia Rykiel, Papi and more. Danny modeled Armani Jeans at the Macy’s Glamorama 2011 show in Minneapolis.
It has been raining here lately and it’s actually good for the plants and air, with everything blooming we do have high pollen counts and hopefully this will wash all the pollen dust in the air. My dad has a chance to use his fireplace also.
I had a bamboo shoot soup for lunch yesterday, my second sister is cooking more Lao/Thai food for us now.
And for dinner we had Summer rolls. The spicy peanut sauce gave me a terrible heart burn, I have to remember to eat less spicy next time.
It’s easy to prepare the summer rolls, and the mints and parsley were from my dad’s garden. I cooked the thin sliced pork, and wrapped with the rice paper sheets.
My dad seedlings are coming along.
The young chili pepper plants.
The Thai Eggplants.
My mom’s orchid has many blooms, the bottom blooms are in the 9th week of blooming now, and the top shoot all bloom at the same time.
My sister Bee’s latest Elephant black leather laptop case. It’s definitely a teaser for me because I want one and she only has one elephant patch.
After watching the news last night, it’s so sad to see what harm the natural disaster can do, and not to mention what is still in the air. Please do help the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund if you can.
When I think of a cherry blossom this is the one I’m thinking about. This pink cherry blossom tree at my dad’s house should be in full bloom by next Saturday.
The crab apple tree that was so abundant last year.
It looks like this one has it beaten by far.
The pear tree.
Yesterday was cold and rainy and I think they are glad to be indoor.
My sister made new swings for her lovebirds.
That’s her talking to her birds, they are great to have as pet. 🙂
Lee and I visited my dad again today, I count my blessings that I have a family to visit. Please help if you can, a kind gesture goes a long way.
