Doha, Qatar 2016 – The Villaggio Mall and the Landmark Shopping Mall

As a teenage girl, one of my weekend activity was « malling with my friends ». As we got older, we preferred going on road trips, going to the beach, and having parties, but I’ll never forget that part of my life where I would get all excited about meeting my friends (and boys …. ssshh!) at the mall. It’s funny because we wouldn’t even shop for stuff, we just liked walking in circles around the mall. Oh and the drama – we loved that a lot too!

Casa Ricci in Metz, France

As promised in the previous post (click here to read it), today’s post will be about the Italian restaurant, Casa Ricci in Metz, France.

I’ve been hearing about this restaurant for as long as I can remember. My trainees are always telling to try it and I always reply sheepishly that I will one day. I’m so glad that I can finally say that I did and most importantly that I enjoyed it! 🙂

Pizza Hut vs. Domino’s

Two weeks ago, I was craving for some pizza. This rarely ever happens because I don’t really like pizza. No wait I do, but I don’t really consider it like a meal. Do you get what I mean? For me, I’ll eat a slice of pizza as a starter (or an afternoon snack hihihi) and that’s fine, but a whole pizza – not my thing! For those who don’t know me, I’m weird like that. 😉

Wedding Anniversary Dinner at O’Paradis Ethiopien in Metz, France

Hello! I hope you’re having a good week.

For my part, I had a disastrous day yesterday. It started so well though! The husband worked the early morning shift yesterday. and did the cutest thing for me. He knows that the first thing I do when I get out of bed is to go to the bathroom. When I was in the bathroom, he stuck a note on the wall « proceed to the dining table ».

Au Coeur du Liban in Metz, France

Last night, I went out with my friend, V. She is my first true friend since I moved in France. I worked yesterday (yes, on a Saturday) from 9am-4pm and when I was finally done I wondered what my evening would be like. Baby girl is still with my niece and the husband was working the afternoon-evening shift. I immediately thought of V. She knows how crazy my work schedule can be and respects that. Unfortunately, I’ve lost friends who just didn’t understand why I wasn’t texting them 24/7. I guess they weren’t real friends in the first place. Sometimes I don’t talk to V for a couple of weeks, but when we catch up it’s like no time passed. She’s a mother as well and has a job, so I respect her need to have distance too.
