Gems of Jaipur

I died after seeing Daphne and Ingrid's blog of their India trip--- particularly when I read about the Gem Palace.


Ring (see more antique victorian rings)

I didn't know that it was that colorful--- India is a livable art piece--- I just imagined it sandy, dirty, with sides that have big nice palace/Mosque/Buildings, ie., Taj Mahal. There's more to India. Just scared of some Indian stereo.
Here's a video of the Gem Palace during the 6th generation of owner, now it is on it's 7th generation.

Here's the not so good parts in India, as we, here in PH also have, I think it's all like this in PH. LOL

Uniforms by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

I thought the Duchess is wearing an Irish military uniform too
but read from BagHag that it's an Alexander McQueen coat dress.
Love the details of the Duke's military uniform,
while the Duchess' Alexander McQueen matched the event.

Movie: The Help

I had watched over hundreds of movies already and I think I should write down what are the good ones, but I might all bore you (if anyone is still reading my blog, that is). So let me just start with the recent movie that I have watched: The Help~
The story is amazing, an eye opener of what really was/ is the situation of being a colored person, a black in US ---a good example of how you stood up for what is right from the characters of Skeeter, Aibileen and Minny.

I think a good movie for parents to show to their kids--- show how to threat the help and how the help can really help in different ways (well we're speaking of a good help).

We can really learn from the era (60s to 70s) gossips, controlling, meddling, manipulation, scheming.

I hope the situation of the black in US has changed already.
