“It would be very boring for me.” This was my first reaction to my friend’s suggestion to travel to Korea during the winter holiday. I thought I already knew almost everything about Korea and it would be meaningless to spend my winter holiday traveling in my own country. However, six days trip with my best […]

On Wednesday, Serena Williams, teaming up with Amal Clooney, hosted a not-so-secret baby shower for their famous royal friend Meghan Markle in a $75,000-a-night penthouse suite in a New York City hotel. On Friday, the tennis great will be back home in the Bay Area, where she will be a keynote headliner for the annual Watermark Conference for Women Silicon Valley at the San Jose Convention Center. George Clooney greets Serena Williams as in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle for the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. (Owen Humphreys/PA Wire) From hobnobbing with royalty to talking women’s empowerment in front of hundreds of Bay Area professional women, Williams has shown she’s accustomed to handling high-pressure situations with focus and grace. With regard to the Duchess of Sussex’s baby shower, the Tatler reported that Williams picked up the total $300,000 tab herself for the party at The Mark, a five-star Upper East Side hotel. Williams is said to be a fan of The Mark, because she’s a frequent visitor to Jean-Georges, the hotel’s in-house restaurant, the Daily Beast reported.  But for all its lavishness, the shower was an intimate affair with just about 15 of Markle and Williams’  glamorous friends — though the party featured something of a red carpet beginning with guests walking a gauntlet of cameras to get into the hotel.

Neither Williams nor Meghan were spotted entering The Mark. But Meghan was photographed leaving several hours after the party.

She also popped into a “high-end children’s clothing store.” On Tuesday night, she met up with Williams and other friends for dinner at Ralph Lauren’s The Polo Bar, according to Elle.  It’s not exactly known when Williams, the winner of 23 Grand Slam singles titles, will arrive back in the Bay Area, where she made a home after marrying Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian in November 2017, according to Vogue.  The couple are parents to a daughter Alexis Olympia and are raising her in the Silicon Valley, Williams told Vogue. In addition to her tennis achievements and for launching her successful HSN Signature Statement fashion brand, Williams also invests in tech ventures owned or led by women and African Americans, according to Vogue. For the Watermark conference, which is sold out, Williams will be in conversation with Whitney Wolfe Herd, founder and CEO of dating and social networking app Bumble.
