    The bee rings were really nice but it was the day before the show and I was trying to stick to a budget. I almost didnít buy the rope but am really glad it didnít stay behind!

    We each bought fried sweet potatoes- yummy!

    1 usd= 7.85 hkd so this particular snack came out to a little under 3 usd.

    I adore that graduated golden South Sea and akoya necklace. It reminds me of the graduated Tahitian and akoya pieces that PP brought in several years ago. I only purchased a bracelet, but it is one of my favorites. It goes with so many of my other Tahitian pieces. And, the graduated matching of the pearls is so fine. It delights the eye.

    Those snacks look so meticulously prepared! Your graduated strand is heavenly. Sublime.

    Red -- I have that graduated ombre Tahitian strand and earrings, if we're thinking of the same pieces from a few years back. I happen to have worn that set a few times recently.

    A little charades and simple words goes a long ways. What I wasn’t expecting was a fee for napkins. Now that’s a first!
