Putting on a blue silk cocktail dress, tying the silk sashes at the back of my neck
Making up my face, painting on cats eyes
Watching Wong Kar-Wai’s ‘In the Mood for Love’, and ‘2046’
Reading Dorothy Parker, Wei Hui, Josephine Hart, Paul Bowles’ The Sheltering Sky, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and Maya Angelou
Being in Hong Kong
Wearing inherited diamond wedding rings, symbolising the hopes and dreams of the women who came before me
Drinking champagne at Christmas
Cooking a special meal for someone: a labour of love
Knowing the names of individual Diane von Furstenberg dresses and lusting after them; cunningly plotting ways to acquire another
Writing a poem
Listening to Aretha Franklin, Tori Amos, Kate Bush, Kosheen, Beth Orton, and Muslim Adhans
Getting ready for a night out: the ritualistic preparation of bathing and adorning
Painting my toenails a crimson red
