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:

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.

And here I am getting ready  to spend 10 exciting days with my love.  Wow! 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! :)

 

Forever Young

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:

Sunday’s Sashay

Check this out and see if it fits:

Inner Peace

If you can start the day without caffeine,

If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,

If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,

If you can eat the same food everyday and be grateful for it,

If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,

If you can take criticism and blame without resentment ,

If you can conquer tension without medical help,

If you can relax without liquor,

If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,

…..Then You Are Probably The Family Dog!

And you thought I was going to get all spiritual. 

“Life is not the way it’s supposed to be. 

It’s the way it is.

The way you cope with it is what makes the difference”

The Shift…

The Sun

“Even
After
All this time
The Sun never says to the Earth,

“You owe me.”

Look
What happens
With a love like that,
It lights the whole sky.”~Hafez

 

I feel that I like to share this video in our cafe siesta today…. So just prepare your coffee maker to be ready.  It’s gonna be like 2 hours, hahahaha :) I hope it will just inspired you, just like it did to me.  At the moment I believe that I am shifting gradually to something which I am not sure what is, because I am still in the process of allowing it….  Anyways, it would be nice to hear a note or two if you happen to experience some shift in your life.

Have a break.
Grab your favorite tea or coffee and drink with me.

What do you have in mind when you see the following words:

3. SEA

4. FOREST

5. COFFEE

In The Still Of The Night

6

Today’s Cafe Siesta is to wake up your memories and experience some random flashbacks… by simply closing your eyes :)

This was another mail that I received from a friend of mine…   A long one but WELL worth it…. I hope you all enjoy as much as I did.  

“In The Still Of The Night” — YOU’LL LOVE IT!!

and he said,

“I hate to admit it but I can remember all of these as I’m sure you will also. I remember these things…but I do it with very fond memories! When life was soooo much easier and slow. ”  

“Sometimes you will never know the true value of a MOMENT until it becomes a memory”

Although, I wasn’t born in this era… I find this song very awesome :)

In the Still of the Night – Fred Parris and The Satins

I remember that I loved to play with my walking dolls that were almost as tall as I was…  I had plates, cups and saucers made of papers that I created myself.
I enjoyed running around with my siblings…  They would bring me with them to a river bank where it was not allowed for children to play.  One day they sneaked out and brought me with them, I was only 5 years old back then and when my father found us there, Yay!  He scolded the big ones but he spared me… hehehe… Because he believed I was innocent :)
I watched Tom and Jerry, Sesame Street after school.  Favorite TV shows and series were Wild Wild West, Different Strokes, Bob Hopes…  hmmmm  I feel happy already while thinking of those things…  I even could smell the donuts that my mom used to bake! Yummmy!

Here are some pictures I was able to scan from one of my old albums… :)

6

Yes Guys! Memories to treasure back…  Like this kind of feeling…

Okay, you can begin now to spend some time to close your eyes and imagine how it was… :)   and then you can grab your favorite tea or coffee and savor it and enjoy it to the last drop :)

Cheers!

Cheers!

Reading Terminal Market

Reading Terminal Market (Photo credit: roboppy)

 On Saturday, April 24th, 2010, over thirty members of the Opera Company of Philadelphia Chorus and principal cast members from the upcoming production of LaTraviata converged on the Reading Terminal Market Italian Festival. Wearing street clothes and blending in with the crowd, the artists swung into action as the first orchestral strains of the famed “Brindisi” were piped through the market, giving a rousing, surprise performance for hundreds of delighted onlookers who were there to enjoy the Italian delicacies and the everyday treats that the Reading Terminal Market has to offer. The four-minute piece drew an overwhelming crowd, and won a thunderous ovation that included both laughter and tears from the audience.

To those who just loves Opera Music, surely you’d enjoy this :)

Have fun!
