Actress Stela Popescu has left for Heaven

Stela P poza veche

A well-known Romanian actress, Stela Popescu, has left us this week, in an unexpected way, without having the chance to properly say good-bye. She had been acting for decades in theatre, movies and television and, privately, she had the amazing chance to find her soul-mate with whom she has lived together ever since. Due to some health problems and despite her great energy at 81 years old,  she has passed away this Thursday.

So, this is a little remembrance post for this funny and optimistic lady who has never lost her sense of humour and love for life. May God rest her soul in peace!

Am auzit cu tristete de actrita Stela Popescu, un om care pentru mine a simbolizat mereu optimismul, dragostea de viata si cheful de ras. E pacat ca nu a apucat sa isi ia ‘la revedere’ cum ar fi trebuit de la familie si prieteni. In plus fata de lunga ei cariera artistica, Stela Popescu a afirmat mereu ca a avut marea sansa de a-si intalni sufletul pereche, pe sotul Puiu Maximilian. Si cred sincer ca avea dreptate, sansa aceasta o au  multi oameni.

Sper sa cei din Romania sa-si aminteasca mereu de optimismul si dragostea ei de viata, de simtul umorului si energia ei, care au insotit-o pana in ultimele clipe de viata. Dumnezeu sa o odihneasca in pace, alaturi de sufletul ei pereche!


Best classical movies for autumn

I know it is time for strange scary movies but myself I prefer to watch the great classical movies. I refer to those old movies that still charm us, make us dream, make us laugh, help us travel in some quiet times, when there was more respect, more friendship, more sincerity and much less violence. Whenever I am disappointed with the tv or cinema offer, I prefer to escape a bit back in the past and choose such a movie…. and I really have where to choose from. For this autumn I could mention two great actors, each in their own, unique way who are still pretty amazing and I think their movies could also charm all of you. I am thinking of Audrey Hepburn and Louis de Funes. There are a lot of movies like Holiday in Rome, My Fair Lady, How to steal a million, Hibernatus, Le gendarme de Saint Tropez, Le grand restaurant and many others. It can be a great idea for some autumn colder nights while enjoying an immunity-strengthening tea and some laughter, so good for your hearts.


So, have a pleasant and funny November no matter where you live and what weather is expecting you outside!

Roger Moore and Romania

It is with sadness that I found out that Roger Moore died yesterday. I had no idea he had a cancer as I’ve constantly seen him these years in different movies. He was charming several generations with his roles and beautiful blue eyes.

Besides the famous James Bond series and other similar films, I liked him also in an unknown movie, made in the past years. The title is ‘A princess for Christmas’ and I am subjectively mentioning it as it is set in one of the most beautiful mountain sites of my country, Sinaia. Roger Moore was very happy with the movie team, both from USA and Romania and the amazing mountain landscape impressed everyone. 

If you have some free time it is worth seeing it with someone special as the end will make you want a kiss 🙂 I am sure Sir Roger Moore will always remain in our hearts and will continue to live through his movies and his three children.
