Please tell me how to open it up to change the light bulb.

This is my friends room and I am a million miles away to help her.

She said, she try to twist the plastic rim but to no avail.

I think there is clip or the white dome can be twisted out.

Please provide some instructions on how to remove it.

Hard to tell, but the dome of many small or lightweight fixtures are held up by spring clips. Pulling down (not too hard) on the dome ring might cause the dome to slide down about 4 inches allowing access to bulbs. If it resists a lot, stop. –  bib Jul 27 '13 at 17:47
