1. Yes I do this everyday. I hate it when I am disturbed or can’t have my daily “ME time” of reading in the morning while drinking my coffee. I would even disappear from the house to find a quiet spot where I can read - be it a book, my daily browsing of world news, or trying to write something. #importanceofreading #readingundisturbed #readingadailyhabit #wef #worldeconomicforum

RT @wef: ICYMI: Are you reading too fast? Why #slowreading cuts stress, boosts brain power. At least 30 minutes of uninterrupted reading helps @WSJ http://wef.ch/1vmQ3M2 #wef http://pic.twitter.com/GFCe2VYU4j

  11. 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…

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!
