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 :)

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! :)

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!

I love you guys!

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:

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.

Mad World!

A Pantene Philippines Commercial that has gone viral online.  The message is to encourage women to leave labels behind and go strong and shine… :)

  • Have you experienced being labeled as a woman or a man and/or a gay or a lesbian?

What can you say about the message that this commercial was trying to convey here?

As for me, I will stick to “My Attitude- My Life- My Rule”

How about you! :)

  • Curious about the song?  Here is the original version of the song.
  • It reminded me of my high school days.. The dancing steps and partying.. hehehe :)

You may like this version too:

  •  And together in duet… An American and Bristish Artists
  • Whoooaaaa! I look at them now and it reminds me of my age!  Yay! :grin:

Wikepedia

Mad World” is a song by the British band Tears for Fears. Written by Roland Orzabal and sung by bassist Curt Smith, it was the band’s third single release and first chart hit, reaching #3 on the UK Singles Chart in November 1982. Both “Mad World” and its B-side, “Ideas as Opiates”, appeared on the band’s debut LP The Hurting the following year. The song eventually became Tears for Fears’ first international hit, reaching the Top 40 in several countries in 1982 and 1983, peaking notably at #2 in South Africa.[1]

Two decades later, the song made a popular resurgence when it was covered in a much slower, minimalist style by composers Michael Andrews and Gary Jules for the soundtrack to the movie Donnie Darko in 2001. This version reached #1 in the UK in December 2003, and also became an international hit.

In The Still Of The Night

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… :)

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!

I Wish You Love

Songwriters: TRENET, CHARLES LOUIS / BEACH, ALBERT ASKEW
 
Goodbye, no use leading with our chins,
this is where our story ends,
Never lovers ever friends.
Goodbye, let our hearts call it a day,
but before you walk away,
I sincerely want to say.
 
I wish you bluebirds in the spring,
to give your heart a song to sing,
And then a kiss, but more than this,
I wish you love.

And if you like lemonade
to cool you in some lazy glade,
I wish you health, and more than wealth,
I wish you love.

My breaking heart and I agree
that you and I could never be,
So with my best, my very best,
I set you free.
I wish you shelter from the storm,
a cozy fire to keep you warm,
Most of all, when snowflakes fall,
I wish you love.
 
[musical interlude]
 
I wish you shelter from the storm,
a cozy fire to keep you warm,
Most of all, when snowflakes fall, hot time,
I wish you love.
All kinds of love,
a whole gang of love.
