  7. Trinchado, Portuguese braised beef. Trinchado’s origin is from South Africa. I got the recipe from www.easyportugueserecipes.com. As usual, the photo online is very different from my actual output.

The sentiment on this photo both applies to thin people and those on the heavy side.  I hear these statements every time. With so many things happening around the world…atrocities on civilians, children dying, homelessness, hunger… A number of people just notice and only talk about pounds lost or gained. C’mon …life is more than that…

Sometimes being alone gives you space to grow. Sometimes it’s hard to grow when you;re too close to someone. Remember that trees are planted far from each other so they can spread their branches and be mature.

About me

This blog is all about the countries I’ve been to and those I have yet to explore, clothes I can’t seem to find in any boutiques, jewelleries I’ll never wear, crafts I'll never make, art I’ll never own, and food I’ll never be able to cook.

Some are my personal writings .. I live .. I ignore warning labels. I revel in the pressure, the adrenaline.. that feeling of being on the edge and the fast pace that characterizes life.. I smoke brain, go high on life and fools around with my imagination! I'm on life crack and I like it... welcome to my world!
