Feeling like a princess…

We went to our favorite hair stylist’s salon@private i salon the other day.  Tsukumi-san is a Japanese hair stylist (speaks Cantonese, too!) and aren’t we happy that we have met her here.  Our daughter was initially resisting to go, thinking she would get scolded (of course..she cut her own hair with a pair of scissors..I know..they are exploring…let them be..but do you know how long it took to let her hair grow evenly!!???).  Anyway…as soon as Tsukumi-san performed her magic, it was all fine. Look at that smile…feeling like a princess!

How lucky!?

…to be seeing a legend so close by!? Bob Dylan was just in Hong Kong.  I can’t believe how close we were to him (or he was to us!?).  What was amazing is that he played songs from different times (including my favorite- Forever Young)..and they all “fit” the same concept. I mean, there was a consistent sound to the songs (am I making sense)…kind of like watching a fashion show with the different beautiful pieces but with the same “concept” and “theme”…it was amazing. Sorry if I am not articulating this well, but it was amazing! And…Charlie Sexton was his guitarist..I knew he looked so familiar (with those cheek bones) and amazed at how young he still looks!!!
