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 :)

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:

Amazing Recovery Of Patrick The Pit Bull After He Was Dumped In A Trash Chute

An emaciated Pit Bull discovered at the bottom of a trash chute in Newark 3 years ago, moments before the trash compactor would have killed him, has made a miraculous recovery and now weighs a healthy 50lbs.
Rescued the day before St Patrick’s Day in 2011, Patrick as he was quickly named, weighed a shocking 19lbs and was on death’s doorstep when volunteers from the Associated Humane Societies took him to the emergency room at Garden State Veterinary Specialists. Source

011

While the trauma of being tied to a railing for seven days and then dumped in a bin has inevitably left emotional and physical scarring, those who know Patrick talk only of how loving and trusting he is.

02

Though understandably Patrick remains nervous around strangers.

03

Hospital staffers have chronicled his progress on their website and a Facebook page has garnered fans from around the world.

04

He’s received hundreds of emails, donations, gifts and letters from those inspired by his tale of survival.

5

His ribcage protruded, he weighed about 20 pounds – roughly 30 pounds less than average – and was covered in sores with parts of skin hanging off him, according to Patricia Smillie-Scavelli, Dr Scavelli’s wife and the administrator of the hospital.

4

‘Everyone thought that, you bring in an animal like that, that looks like it’s really just a corpse, you put it to sleep,’ Mrs Smillie-Scavelli said.

‘But of course, he looked up at you with those eyes, and you say: How can you give up on this dog? How can you, when he’s not giving up on life? So, we gave him that second chance, and he has just run with it, and thrived.’

3

After weeks of emergency measures that included a transfusion of three pints of dog blood, a special diet, medicine and physical therapy, Patrick began to gain weight and eat solid food.

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.

Mini-Elite-Transparent Plastic Cord Holder

BY YOURS TRULY :)

Tooth doctors and/or Orthodontists and mortals who wear braces are very familiar with this “power chain or e-chain” material:

Repurposed your used e-chain plastic holder into a unique headphone cord holder.
The length of the extra cord of your headphone can be easily adjusted
to your preferred length from your pocket or purse to your ear.

Wow, this is way too cool! Isn’t it?
It’s very neat and classy looking with my 
iPhone.
It will look great too with iPod. 
Try it yourself :D
How about you guys, do you have any repurposed  items,
materials or products that you would like to share?

Most Popular And  Interesting Pictures

Viewing note: clicking on an image will open a new window to the post of the image.

A Little Calvin In Every Child

8

A Little Calvin In Every Child was one of the first images on All That Is Interesting when we launched in 2010 and has remained one of the most popular. And it’s easy to see why: the hilarious mimicry of Calvin reminds us exactly why it’s great to be a kid.

Asperatus Clouds Over New Zealand

??????????????????????

This fascinatingly bizarre photograph garnered an even weirder amount of online attention, where it was featured in several conspiracy-oriented websites that claimed it was evidence of government manipulation of the weather.

The Town Where Everyone Wears A Gas Mask

10

One of our favorite articles in the archives, The Town Where Everyone Wears A Gas Mask details life in Miyakejima, Japan, where an active volcano had spewed poisonous gas for the last two decades. Rather than leave, the 3,000 inhabitants decided to wear gas masks 24/7 so they could remain on the island.

The Casting Call For Smells Like Teen Spirit

11

This delightful gem needs little explanation: it’s the casting call for the music video for Smells Like Teen Spirit.

McDonalds In America Heatmap

12

McDonalds: it’s everywhere and anywhere — this beautiful visualization of every location in America proves it.

Behind A Frozen Waterfall

13

Who knew that a) you could get behind a frozen waterfall and b) they would have such magnificent colors?

The End Of The Earth

14

The Nullarbor Cliffs literally feel like the end of the earth, though they are really just the end of Australia.

Afghanistan In The 1960s

15

Our most popular gallery of 2013, Afghanistan in the 1960s is a staggering photo essay on what life was once like in Afghanistan.

The Man Who Refused To Salute Hitler

1

The story of August Landmasser is amazing as it is tragic. Landmasser fell in love with a Jewish woman who, before they could marry, was sent to a concentration camp. Before he would be sent to a labor camp, this picture captured Landmasser refusing to partake in the Nazi salute during a public rally in 1936.

The Near-Extinction Of The American Bison

4

Once numbering in the hundreds of millions in the United States (that’s right, hundreds of millions), bison were hunted down to a mere thousand by 1890. Most of the story of how this happened can be inferred by the picture above.

A relic of an era since lost, Bulludzha Monument was erected in 1981 as a monument to the Bulgarian socialist movement. The Communist government would soon fade away, as would the monument.

  • Before we proceed on drinking our favorite coffee and/or tea with our Cafe Siesta for today, I like to share you some of my thoughts about me and my source.  I believe in God, I believe that there is this powerful source before me who is always guiding my thoughts and actions.  I believe in the work of Jesus, when he said, “I am the way the truth and the life”. I believe that because I always end my prayers with “In Jesus name”, and as always all my prayers have been answered.  Of course not at that very instant but I usually received them and I felt blessed.
  • I also believe in Magick and there is this part of me that I might also be one of those white witches… hehehe
  • I believe in the OBE (Out of Body Experience).  My first experience of OBE was when I was 12 years old…. and until now.  Before, I was so afraid every time I feel that I am out of my body and started flying and when it happened,  I used to pray and always say “In Jesus Name” and then all of a sudden I will just go back to my body.  But now I am ready…  And just 5 days ago, February 2, around 5 in the morning, I had an OBE.  After I got tired from creating in my 3D world I went to bed while I left my favorite Kenny G Jazz on.  I like that very much to sleep with music on.  Then it started that I was already having my OBE.  I was ready this time so that I explore more and flew around the universe.  I love it very much out there so free and I really feel joy.  Then I saw this tunnel so I went in and at the end of it was a brick wall and before I could just bump to it, I knew back in my mind that it won’t harm me at all, in fact I went through it.  I found myself on the rough cement floor and someone had touch my shoulder.  Before when this would happen, I would right away pray and struggled to go back to my body, but this time I waited to really see who was it.  He was young and good looking and I asked him to tell me what I needed to know.  He said that Im still young.  Young in the sense that there are lots for me to learn and discover.  He said he would not  like something in-appropriate that might happen to me just like his father and he pointed on this old man.  I asked him some kind of proof that would remind me that I was not just dreaming all of this.  I knew I was awake because while I was talking to him, I could still hear my music on.  He gave me 2 names “Nino Torres” and “Nono Flores”.  I thought that I would search them on the net, if there were any of these people exist in this world.  And so I waited him to tell me more but then  little by little I was already back in my body.  I got up right away to write them down so I won’t forget them.  Later that day I goggled them.  And would you believe it?  These 2 people exist: This is Nono Flores  nono flores  and this is Nino Torres   Now these two guys are Spanish and famous…             Well, I have a Spanish blood and Toothsome is already famous too…. hehehhe :)  But really I am still trying to figure it out what would be the importance of these two people in my life.  Anyways I just asked for some proof, right?   And I got it.  So I guess I will continue to keep on searching.  And I am telling you guys this OBE thing is real.

Hmmm I think I would need a professional teacher on this OBE thing and so I goggled on it and I found one.  Another story to tell in the future.

  • I believe in casting out of bad spirits.  I do, because I had witness this in my own eyes. It’s a long story.  While I was writing this part, I just got a goose bumps… hahahaha
  • I believe in dreams, I believe in astrology and numbers…
  • I believe in the work of Billy Graham .  During his crusade in the Philippines 1977, November 23, I was born again and was also baptized in Holy Spirit and had spoken in tongues.  But I prefer not to have any religion.  I respect all beliefs and religions out there.
  • And then this… The Law Of Attraction…  I believe one day I could get myself in there… inside what they called “Vortex”  Or perhaps I am already there but I am just not aware of it.  And how about you guys?  Have you ever been curious about our existence?  Anything you would like to say or share with us?

Would you like to come with me inside the Vortex?  Hahahaha

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!
