La Multi Ani Romania – 100 de ani!

Buna ziua din nou si imi cer scuze ca am intarziat cu acest articol, el era deja in forma de ciorna insa nu mai am timpul liber de dinainte…

Nu voiam sa las sa treaca ocazia fara sa adaug cateva cuvinte si impresii adunate in acesti ani de viata, atat acasa in Romania cat si in afara ei.

Cel mai important sfat pe care l-as da tuturor celor din Romania, indiferent de varsta, sex sau educatie este sa nu mai fie negativi, critici si nemultumiti in legatura cu tara, orasul, viata lor si ceea ce li se intampla. Am putut abia sa compar viata mea de acasa cu cea din alta tara dupa ce m-am mutat cu iubitul si am realizat cat de bine era totusi acasa, la mine in oras. Nu pot spune ca in vest este rau insa din multe puncte de vedere, totul este mai egoist, mai distant, mai fad…mai gol de esenta si de voie buna. Aici nimeni nu isi da buna ziua, nu se discuta in holuri sau la coada la magazin, se imbraca in negru si gri de parca fiecare zi merg la inmormantari, sunt zgarciti si creeaza spatii in care dai cu coatele de pereti, sunt egoisti si ciudati de te intrebi unde au trait…Sunt dezamagita sincer pentru ca imi imaginam ca oamenii& lucrurile in general sunt cel putin la fel de haioase sau placute ca acasa. Si este plin de tot felul de ciudati care au de toate si sunt nefericiti, crizati, stresati pentru ca de fapt viata lor e goala si plicticoasa si urata, cu toti banii lor. Cam asta am vazut in ultimii ani. Bogatia nu e egala cu fericire, cel putin pe aici.

Eu cu 10 euro in buzunar intr-o zi de joi (da,….ne vedeeem joi/ am urlaat dupa eeaaa) sunt mai fericita ca altul cu 5000 de euro salariul…O fi normal? Acasa toata lumea da buna ziua, vorbesc mult, e corect, dar se distreaza si elimina stresul, gatesc, se distreaza si se imbraca in toate culorile. Bunicamea, la 89 de ani, se imbraca mai frumos ca un tip de 30 de ani de pe aici. Daca ai ghinionul sa iesi afara intr-o zi cu ploaie, nu stii ce emai deprimant – vremea sau hainele celor de pe strada…noroc ca mai apar ici colo catei, pisici si veverite, ei mai salveaza peisajul urban.

Ca sa revin, Romania e un locsor cu probleme dar mult mai bun decat va imaginati; la voi acasa oriunde ati fi, va rog sa incepeti a aprecia ceea ce aveti- o tara fara teroristi ( e mare lucru), politicieni tampiti dar care nu pun bombe, vecini vorbareti dar care dau buna ziua si iti dau o ceapa daca ai nevoie, fete imbracate colorat in metrou, baieti care inca mai cumpara buchete de flori, cladiri frumoase si injuraturi in trafic (asta nu imi place) dar sa avem rabdare, noi macar urcam panta, aici ei deja o coboara.

Castel Pelespeisaj dealuri RoAceasta se vrea a fi o pledoarie pentru o Romanie in schimbare si cu problemite multiple, dar o tara mai vesela decat credeti, mai accesibila, mai educata si mai permisiva decat in vest si nu va mint. Imi e dor des de Bucuresti si de restul locurilor mele (5inaia, Constanta, Vama Veche, Busteni, Drobeta Turnu Severin, Campina, Giurgiu, Navodari, Arges, Buzau, Iasi, Baile Herculane) insa nu am plecat de tot, revin constant acasa si ma bucur de micile mele ritualuri. Cred ca dupa o perioada o sa ma intorc definitiv, cand voi fi realizat cateva lucruri frumoase si pe aici, poate intre timp mai colorez peisajul, cu putin ajutor de la cine stie cine.

La Multi Ani Romania mea, iti multumesc pentru educatia&scolile mele, pentru profii mei tare simpatici, bunica&toti ai mei, primele saruturi&co, parcurile unde mai chiuleam, primele casete cu MJ, olimpiadele de engleza unde ma calificam mereu, petrecerile din liceu unde dansam pana dimineata, Mita cu ‘Vino mai aproape’, Vama Veche, Smiley si multi altii, biserica Stavropoleos unde il spionam pe Tudor Chirila, inghetata cu menta si busuioc din centrul vechi….(si e tarziu, mi-e somnic), esti o tara imperfecta si stresanta dar mie imi placi si sunt mandra&fericita ca m-am nascut in orasul meu mare si colorat, unde nu m-am plictisit niciodata! Nu ma asteptam sa am un asa nivel bun ca om, oriunde ma aflu, in afara tarii; sunt mandra si multumita ca sunt romanca si nu una oarecare.

 

PS I hope to bring the English version asap 🙂 Thank you!

Frero Delavega- musique pour notre Ă˘me

 

I have chosen a pair of two amazing guys but who unfortunately have separated their ways. Still, their music lives and is continued by one of them, Jeremy Frerot. I am sharing today some of their songs I love:

Ton visage:

This song helped me a lot when I just left everything at home and moved with my new boyfriend in Lille, in March 2016 – wonderful and loving memories !! We had six honeymoons in France and it was a very romantic start of our life together.

Mon petit pays:

 

This song reminds me of home-wherever I am, Romania is in my heart& my grandma, family, friends, Simona Halep, Bucharest, the amazing icecream in the old centre. I am happy and proud to be a sweet&great little Romanian girl 🙂

 

Le chant des sirènes

 

This song is for everyone who loves and appreciates the seas, oceans, rivers and lakes we have- thank you, Lord, for these amazing waters!

 

And because today my honey is 40 years old, the last one is for him; we should all be grateful for the people we have in our life, every day of our lives:

Sweet  Darling:

 

 

Have a nice day, be grateful for everything, take care of your body&spirit and stay in LOVE!     Hugs from here for all of you 🙂 🙂 🙂

Loving our grandparents

I admire a lot Jamie, as a chef and as a human being. It seems that his grandma has left this world and he is paying a lovely tribute to her: 

Family-man and restaurateur Jamie Oliver shared an emotional goodbye to his Nanny Hazel Oliver after her funeral on Friday.

The doting dad-of-five wrote a thoughtful and heartbreaking post to honour his father’s mother, saying: “Today my family laid to rest my wonderful Nanny Hazel Oliver. She was the most amazing woman with a personality and welcome for all, she was a grafter but could light up a room with her energy and laughter, she was a great pub landlady, a fine cook, I loved her tasty food which she served in the family pub which my uncle Mark still runs to this very day.

The TV chef continued: “My memories of her are so precious and full of love, she always had time for everyone. The church was full today which was an amazing credit to her. I felt very proud of the Olivers today, my Dad, my Uncle Mark and Colin and Auntie Mary and all my brilliant cousins 1st and 2nd. Thank you and love you Nanny.”

Jamie and granny

 

It makes me also remember my grandma Ana, whose birthday was today and, at the same time, cherish the two grannies we still have, mine and my lover’s- Teodora and Bernadette – they are simply amazing ladies that we love 

Well said, Jamie and, all of you if you still have grandparents, call them, visit them, offer them goodies and thank them as they are still part of your busy life! 

 

The Mallorca Paradise

 

Hoping that these images will bring you back into the summer feeling, I wish all of you to have a healthy and amazing autumn !

These are a few photos depicting the beautiful island of Mallorca, trying to capture some of its beauties. I hope that more will come and convince you of the amazing planet we have the luck of living on. Saddened by the news of the flooding in the Mallorca island and north of Baleares, I send my heartfelt wishes to the people concerned to save as many souls as possible in this dramatic situation and restore the harmony that has been forever inhabiting these places.

Charles Aznavour, formidable pour Ă©ternitĂ©

Je viens d’apprendre la nouvelle et je voulais Ă©crire un peu sur cet artiste unique. Je connais peu de details sur lui mais j’ai fredonnĂ© bien de ses chansons a la longueur des annĂ©es, comme bien d’entre vous, sĂ»rement.

Ne le 22 mai 1924 en France, ses parents Ă©taient armeniens et avaient un don de la chanson, que Charles en a hĂ©ritĂ© aussi. Ila  commence sa carriere artistique, plus ou moins, a neuf ans, quand il a joue des petits roles dans une piece de theatre. Soutenu par Edith Piaf pendant sa jeunesse, il est devenu fameux en Europe avec une chanson nommee ‘She’. Je pense que vous connaissez le reste et beaucoup plus que moi.

J’ai encore bien des choses a decouvir sur ce grand artiste armenien-francais que j’ai admire beaucoup; il m’a toujours fait penser a mes deux grand-peres.

Une chanson tres sympathique, qui donne aussi le title de son album de 1961, interpretee ici en 1965:

Comme Noel est ma fete preferee depuis que j’etais un petit petit enfant, je veux presenter aussi une autre chanson, que vous pouvez ecouter le 24 decembre, quand le moment sera parfait, avec un the a la cannelle pour vous rechauffer aussi votre corps, pas seulement votre esprit:

La lutte contre le glyphosate

Glyphosate : Nous sommes en colère !
Chères amies & Chers amis,
Inutile de tourner autour du pot de glyphosate ! Nous sommes en colère. La colère de ceux qui constatent avec amertume qu’une poignĂ©e de dĂ©putĂ©s insensibles sont capables de jouer les VRP du lobby agro-chimique en s’opposant Ă  l’inscription, dans la loi, de l’interdiction du glyphosate sous trois ans.
Samedi matin, le 15 septembre, à 4h18 précisément, 42 députés ont refusé d’interdire, en dernière lecture de la loi Alimentation, l’utilisation du glyphosate d’ici à 3 ans !
Ce vote a maintenant eu lieu il y a plus de 48 heures et nous ne décolérons pas ! Tant sur la forme que sur le fond, ce vote est proprement scandaleux. Ce vote était public. Nous avons donc retrouvé le nom de ces petits soldats de l’agrochimie.

Merci beaucoup pour votre aide, chaque action compte si vous voulez un environnement sain pour vous et pour vos enfants! J’espère que vous puissiez Ă©couter votre cĹ“ur et agir pour votre santĂ© et pour votre futur, pour notre futur. RĂ©cemment devenue mère, je ferai tous les efforts pour ĂŞtre sĂ»re d’un futur plus sain, plus propre et embelli par des meilleures gens.

A bit more Prague for breakfast !

Hello again everyone, greetings from me, the little fairy !

Seeing that my fellow-blogger is feeling so ”workingly romantic”, I have decided to post some more photos from the 🙂 romantic city of Prague. I took them during a romantic trip and sorry for the lack of sunshine….which, still, we had it in our hearts 🙂  I hope you like them and, as some tourism advice, go there better between May-September. 

The last photo is from my home country, from Mangalia, a nice town on the border of the Black Sea.
