France… Food… Fire

IMG_0036

 France…  Paris

You know the feeling when your plane finally landed and you felt the wheels touched the ground?  Oh, you would say, “Thank God, I’m here!” And how you would like to clap your hands to express how wonderful was your flight.  Have you ever felt that way?  Well, with me…  Almost all the time…  :)

This is one of the images that are posted on the walls at the baggage claim area (Aeoroport charles degaulle)

So last 3 days ago V picked me up in the airport and before we headed to our hotel, we decided to have our lunch first.  We passed this Chinese Restaurant where we dined sometime last year, so that I asked him if we would be having some chinese food for lunch.  But V suggested that we should go to an Italian Restautant this time, to where we haven’t had gone before, and it was like two blocks away from the  Chinese Restaurant.

Food

I really enjoyed my food plus the wine of course…

Then smoke all over…  We could smell the fire…

Fire

And you know where was the fire?

Oh you wouldn’t believe it, but The Chinese Restaurant was on fire.  So I took my camera right away and started shooting… The Firemen came to the rescue at once!

I gathered that the fire started in the kitchen.

Well, I did not catch the fire because it was put out so quickly by the firefighters and here are some of the photos I shot:

Anyways that night V and I were also on Fire in our Hotel

Smiling Thoughts…

Forever Youthful

 

 

 

When I met you I tasted life
Like a bud, I blossom, I breathe

Never again would I strife
For your love and care are so deep

Smiling thoughts of you conquered me
In the morn when I make my coffee,

When I eat, or laugh you’re with me,
And everywhere it’s you I see,

Along the road, those lovely trees,
At my work with my Apple breeze,

These words I’m writing now, I grace
Because you put smile on my face

You’re the best part of my everyday
And at night when I lay down to sleep

Still there you are all over me
Smiling thoughts of you lingers great!

2010

V and I met in IMVU,  January, 2010.   Our avatars just clicked together, hehehe.  After 6 months dating on the web, we decided to meet in person.

He introduced me to his family and friends.   Our True Romance started here in the Land Of Love- Paris. I visited him 3x in this year.  21 days in July.  A week in September. And another week in November.
Vincou and Maria 2010

2011

In this year I visited him 2x.  A week  in July and then  another week before Christmas.  But take note that we are always online everyday in Skype, since our Romance started in 2010 and up to now.   That’s how we take care of our Long Distance Relationship.  He’s now sleeping and snoring as I write this post.  hehehe :)
Vincou and Maria 2011

2012

Again 2x in this year.  21 days in my July vacation and then again last week of December to New Year’s Eve.

After like 8 months… !  So you wouldn’t imagine how excited we are to be together again in flesh, hehehe.    I will be flying this Thursday (tomorrow to be exact, July 24) to Paris.  Then from Paris, we’ll fly to Barcelona.  This is my first time to visit Spain.  I will finally see the country where my ancestors came from. Yiheyyy! :)

Bono and Blige – One


Once again it’s Sunday Morning. This month on All About Lemons Music Passion the focus is on duets. As this blog focuses on Mixed Media, I decided to do a post devoted to Bono‘s attempts to meld his wonderful take on Pop/Rock with artists who have either inspired him to take up the artform, or ones that currently inspire us all to continue experimenting.

I will begin with the band duetting with Rock God Lou Reed on Lou’s own Satellite of Love via a T.V. screen connection (ZOO TV – Sydney 1993).

My second offering was the most moving for me personally. Modern soul Diva Mary J. Blige explodes on this rendition of One, re-recorded in 2005 with U2, and released on her album The Breakthrough. I must confess I never understood half the lyrics or what the song was about until…

Once upon a Toothsome Day,

a truck full of donuts

pulled up at Al’s house,

leaking glazed all bran crullers

which delighted all the birds.

Al however was rather perturbed.

The birds stole Al’s car

and made a fast getaway

to go stealing Toothsome’s Apple!

Toothsome begged Mac to help.

Super Giggles to the rescue!!!

Tooth Of The Day

Relationship

Relationship

 

Relationship

***

Falling in love and having a relationship are two different things.

***

“I mean, if the relationship can’t survive the long term,
why on earth would it be worth my time and energy for the short term?”
― Nicholas Sparks

***

“Well, it seems to me that the best relationships – the ones that last -are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship.

You know, one day you look at the person and you see something more than you did the night before.

Like a switch has been flicked somewhere. And the person who was just a friend is…

suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with.”

― Gillian Anderson

***

“It’s no good pretending that any relationship has a future if your record collections disagree violently

or if your favorite films wouldn’t even speak to each other if they met at a party.”
― Nick Hornby

 

***
The only real security is not in owning or possessing, not in demanding or expecting,not in hoping, even.
Security in a relationship lies neither in looking back to what it was,
nor forward to what it might be, but living in the present and accepting it as it is now.

Happy Weekdays Everyone!

More Selfies With Photoshop

It’s EED here.  The Holy month.  I prefer to spell it “EED” rather than “EID” as it commonly spelled.  Because when you reverse it, it would read like Die.

During this month we usually work in the night and it gives me some time to take some selfie pics of me and at the same time do some retouch using photoshop… hahaha

I find it very fun in doing so.  Any comment?  Yay! :lol:

Music Passion — Duets

Originally posted on sarahpotterwrites:

My music passion for July is Two Daughters of this Aged Stream: a duet from Act IV of the opera King Arthur written by the English baroque composer Henry Purcell in 1691. The libretto for this opera is based on a poem written by Sir John Dryden in celebration of King Charles II’s reign. The words of the duet are quite saucy, as the two sopranos — Michèle Laporte and Marie-Cécile Charrier — are playing the part of sirens.

Two daughters of this aged stream are we,
And both our sea-green locks have comb’d for ye.
Come, come, bathe with us an hour or two;
Come, come, naked in for we are so,
What danger from a naked foe?
Come, come, bathe with us and share
What pleasures in the floods appear.
We’ll beat the waters till they bound
And circle round.

***

Stumbling is not falling.

***

Men occasionally stumble over the truth,
but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.

***

Wisely, and slow. They stumble that run fast.

***
To make mistakes is human;
to stumble is commonplace;
to be able to laugh at yourself is maturity.

***

You don’t quit because you happen to be behind.
You want to see how you do. And who knows? Maybe somebody will stumble.
Ron Paul

Everybody knows if you are too careful
you are so occupied in being careful that you are sure to stumble over something.
