Family Christmas Tree

This was our hand-made Christmas Tree 🙂 last 2013…

I won’t be able to be with my family this Christmas’16,
but the memories and togetherness of making our Family Christmas Tree with them count the most.

The joy of making it and sharing thoughts on how to do it was already a Blissful Family Christmas.

Tooth Of The Day

Calling

112

***

“If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.”
Émile Zola

***

An iPod, a phone, an internet mobile communicator…
these are NOT three separate devices!
And we are calling it iPhone!
Today Apple is going to reinvent the phone. And here it is.

***

“The women I know with strong personalities,
the ones who might have become generals or the heads of companies if they were men,
become teachers. Teaching is a calling, too.
And I’ve always thought that teachers in their way are holy–
angels leading their flocks out of the darkness.”
Jeannette Walls, Half Broke Horses

***

I don’t know what my calling is, but I want to be here for a bigger reason.
I strive to be like the greatest people who have ever lived.

 

***

“I believe there’s a calling for all of us.
I know that every human being has value and purpose.
The real work of our lives is to become aware. And awakened. To answer the call.”
Oprah Winfrey

***
“We live in a world where bad stories are told,
stories that teach us life doesn’t mean anything
and that humanity has no great purpose.
It’s a good calling, then, to speak a better story.
How brightly a better story shines.
How easily the world looks to it in wonder.
How grateful we are to hear these stories,
and how happy it makes us to repeat them.”
Donald Miller, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years: What I Learned While Editing My Life

***

The calling of the humanities is to make us truly human in the best sense of the word.

***

The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership.

***

To me, the American Dream is being able to follow your own personal calling.
To be able to do what you want to do is incredible freedom.

***

Enjoy Your Weekend Everybody!

“Friends are forever… Cousins are for life!”

“Cousins are usually the first friends we have as children.
No one will ever understand your crazy family like your cousins do
even if you haven’t talked to them much lately.”

―notestoquote

Awesome cousins

My cousins, Dario, Brenda, Al, me and my little brother Bong 🙂 circa 1970…

 The quote above is so true with me.  My cousins are awesome!

How about you? Do you have cousins?

And speaking of “cousin”,
Let’s watch this funny video
while we sip our favorite tea or coffee
Enjoy!

Cheers!

Best of Cousin Eddie

A Good Day To Live

Though we are surrounded by vast beauty, it is often the ugliness that tends to stand out.

So, let us be cognizant of our world, diligently trying to make life better for everyone, and

always keeping our minds open to the possibilities.  Pour a cup of coffee, sit with me and turn up your speakers to listen to one

of the beautiful Persian tunes. It will be a treat for those who have never heard it.

Have A Break With Jim Carrey

Attaining success in life,  Jim Carrey told students in his recent commencement address at a university in Iowa, is about “letting the universe know what you want, and working toward it, while letting go of how it comes to pass.”

“Your job is not to figure out how it’s going to happen for you, but to open the door in your head, and when the door opens in real life, just walk through it.”

“Don’t worry if you miss your cue, because there’s always doors opening. They keep opening.”

“I’m just making a conscious choice to perceive challenges as something beneficial, so that I can deal with them in the most productive way.”

 

 

:)

Okay guys, let’s watch this
with our favorite tea or coffee …
Be inspired and entertained by Jim.
ENJOY!

Cheers!

But before you do that.  I want you to answer the following questions:

1.  What is your favorite animal?

2. What kind of animal you want to have for a pet?

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

3. SEA

4. FOREST

5. COFFEE

Cheers!

France… Food… Fire

 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…

IMG_0019 IMG_0020

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…

 

 

 

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.
Vincou and Maria 2012a

2014

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

And on December, it’s V’s turn to pay me a visit and meet my family too…  🙂

I will be  keeping you posted.
Thank you guys and I love you all!

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! 😆

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…

“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.
