Because I meet a lot people, thanks to my work, interesting things always seem to happen to me. My friends, trainees, and colleagues always tease me that I should write a compilation book.
Sadly though, I also tend to attract bad luck. A wise person once told me that God hands these challenges to the strongest ones, knowing that they can go through anything. If that’s the case, then I am a freaking superhero. ;p
But enough of that. The question is: What happened on New Year’s Eve??
As you might know, I am half Filipino-half French and I am married to a Filipino man. As Filipinos, it is part of our culture and heritage to eat rice everyday. Back in the Philippines, we ate rice up to 3 times a day, but here in France we usually have rice once a day. But that’s just because breakfast is usually a quick one and we don’t usually eat lunch at home. I was told recently by a client that apparently Asians have a sort of stomach enzyme which makes it easier to eat and digest rice. I still have to confirm that information. While eating rice so regularly is a real pleasure for us, it’s not the case for our daughter, Baby Girl. She has a hard time understanding why rice is so frequent on our dining table. LOL. If she could cook our meals, she would prepare pasta and French fries. I do try to cook pasta from time to time, but I never make fries at home. The smell of cooking fried potatoes is not one that I particularly like, so we save that for when we go to the restaurant.
Poulet Basquaise is of my favorite French dishes ever. Turns out, it’s one of the easiest thing to make as well, so it’s safe to say that I cook this at least once or twice a month. What’s great is that it is made with bell peppers and red bell pepper is a great source of vitamin C. I know a lot of people who have difficulties digesting bell peppers. Thank God we don’t have that problem! 😉
Last Sunday morning, I was out and about in the city of Metz. I love this city. It’s not as big and dynamic as Paris, but it is pretty charming. Metz is rich in history, there are lots of green spaces, the people are pretty friendly, and there are wonderful places to check out. I’ve been living here for a year now and I am always excited to see what the city has to offer.
Hello guys! What’s up? Today, I am going to write about last Saturday. If you read my previous post (click here for the post), you probably know that I was not at my best. I was upset and Baby Girl was away to her first Scout Weekend, so at 3PM, I couldn’t wait for the Husband to come home from work. I needed to talk to someone and as soon as I did, I felt light years better! So we went off to do one of my favorite activity – grocery shopping!
Hey guys! It’s no secret now – I need a drink by Friday night! 😉 Something not too strong, but something with alcohol. You’re probably thinking she lives in France, she drinks wine all the time. I don’t. What?!?Lire la suite →
Growing up eating breakfast was not my thing at all. I can still remember my father forcing me to drink hot milk before going to school. It was just horrible! I remembered I liked breakfast when I was on holiday and he used to bitch about that because he didn’t understand why I ate breakfast on vacation and not school days. Anyways, that was just the way it was.
I knew that blogging daily would be difficult once I got back to work and I was right. 🙁
Don’t get me wrong – I love my work. I feel lucky knowing that every day I wake up and I’m excited to start my day. It’s not always peachy, I’ll admit, but most of the time it is. But sometimes I just feel like I don’t have time to do everything I want to do. Blogging included.
