Vogue, Nespresso and quiet time at my clubhouse.. ♥
i was meant to update this tumblr blog more often. yet, human beings love making excuses. don’t we. in the past month or two, i have been working as a news reporter for an English newspaper THE STANDARD (under Sing Tao international news corporation). it is, indeed, a huge challenge - be it being away from my loving boyfriend overseas or working in such pressing environment for at least twelve hours a day, five full days a week.
anyhow, from a nobody to someone whose name printed in the paper on a daily basis, i am overwhelmingly honored.
as steve jobs once stated,
feel it - your life.
much love, Alice So xoxo
you are irreplaceable.
L is for the way you look at me
O is for the only one I see
V is very very extra-ordinary
E is even more than anyone that you adore
Wake me up on a Monday morning.
Lying in my bed
I hear the clock tick
And think of you…
Starting this coming Monday… my heart beats real fast, already.
WRITER - ALICE SO.
Steve Jobs wrote,
I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.
I hereby resign as CEO of Apple. I would like to serve, if the Board sees fit, as Chairman of the Board, director and Apple employee.
As far as my successor goes, I strongly recommend that we execute our succession plan and name Tim Cook as CEO of Apple.
I believe Apple’s brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it. And I look forward to watching and contributing to its success in a new role.
I have made some of the best friends of my life at Apple, and I thank you all for the many years of being able to work alongside you.

Much love X
nobody said it was easy.
For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge you’ll never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; Never throw out anybody.
Remember, If you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!
