And That Was Just The Weekend

There was something about my weekend that made me grin. It was an exciting filled time, none stop and it involved these. Yes, I was a party machine – birthday, farewell and get together, attended this many shindig, had enough calorie intake for the whole year, I may add but that’s what the gym is for. Most of all, I had fun. Nothing can go wrong with a bunch of women having a great time. No, I didn’t finish it all. That’s what take out boxes are for.

Rolling, Rolling, Rolling

It is Friday and the weekend. Are you ready to roll? Wherever you are, have a joyous and blessed weekend. Enjoy it. Enjoy the day, the afternoon, the evening. Enjoy your friends, family, colleague. Enjoy the company. The Food. The camaraderie. Take to the beach. To the theater. To the fair. To the park. To the bar. To the restaurant. To whatever rolls your joint. Just go. Find that comedy club and go for a laugh. Laugh at yourself and everything. At Life. Live the breeze in the air. The sand in the beach. The surfer in the ocean. Grove to the sound of the rollerblade in the park. The crackle of the popcorn in the theater. The sound of a beer cracking at the bar. The nibbling at the restaurant. The roller coaster at the amusement park. Dance. Breath. Shout. At the heat in the ocean. The fish frolicking in the sea. The colorful bucket of flower on the table. The squirrel pirouettes on the trees. Just be. Free. Exhale. Joy. Let’s roll!

Found this gentleman coming from the beach the other day. No, he is not homeless. He was just having some fun with his new invention.

A Penny For Her Thought

IMG_3840Ohhh how I would give her a penny for her thoughts!

The picture says it all. I wish I could puncture her soul, open the door to her closet of millions figurines and unmask it.

She seemed to be deep into her thoughts, way, way Up There, reflecting, driving the highway of the unknown thoughts and discovering, smiling at her surroundings. I don’t know where her mind was, what she was thinking but she appeared distant embroiled in a web of summaries.

Let’s face it, after perhaps, an intense laborious day, she looks tired but placid!

The picture was taken late at night, very late while in Macau, at a restaurant where a friend had taken us for dinner and after finishing fixing us the meal. They were winding down,  about to close when we literally barged in. I am pretty sure it was not appreciated it but they made sure one more meal was made.

It was not a five star restaurant, a state of the art come sit down and we offer you the moon nor a McDonald either. It was more like “while in Rome do what Romans do”, located in a corner somewhere, hidden from the prying eyes of hungry bulls, a mom and pop family owned but good well made home meal.

I confess, I was a little apprehensive about what was waiting for us behind the walls but to my amazement, the food was insanely good, the warmth with how we were treated superseded all my fears and I can honestly say that it was not your everyday restaurant but a crème de la crème traditional chinese food.
