Simply ME...

A star or a rainy cloud,,, realistic or a dreamer,,, tough or emotional,,, a butterfly or a dolphin,,, it is all about me reflecting the transparent me!

I don't get it..

It's hard to get it.. and I think I never will.

When the green light does not mean drive!!

So if you want to take a right turn and the light goes green, it means you have to wait for the pedestrians to cross!! + sometimes you have to wait for the cars from the other side to drive straight and then it's your turn..

And guess what? Both scenarios happen when the light is GREEN. It is confusing! Big time!

I'm so LOVIN' it

Coco Chanel

I couldn't find a better video for my favorite Tango part in the movie, but I guess this one would do. I absolutely loved it. Not only because Im so into fashion but because it is about giving a meaning, life, colour, and history to one of the greatest brands in the fashion world.. to an iconic fashion empire..

Coco Chanel was strong, independent, bold and a risk taker. She took great pride as a woman in designing for other women believing that they should dress for themselves and not their men. She introduced casual practical clothes for women by borrowing fabrics from men's fashion! She suffered, lived with a broken heart and never got married.. but after every fall she came back stronger and with more determination to survive.

Now- and after watching this- whenever I see the logo, I will remember it all.. what the logo itself means and how it was created (cutting the two Cs in the middle). The story behind the semi-formal "little black dress" which became a Chanel trademark and a fashion standard. The creation of Chanel handmade bags with their unique golden chain, the secret behind the Chanel suit jackets and Chanel No. 5

Some of her quotes:

• A woman should be two things: classy and fabulous.
• Success is often achieved by those who don`t know that failure is inevitable.
• In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.
• I don`t know why women want any of the things men have when one of the things that women have is men.
• Fashion passes, style remains.
• To achieve great things, we must first dream.
• Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.
Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions. ~CoCo Chanel

yeah.. definitely MODERN

Blinking green- for vacant and red for occupied

How cool is that? You don't even need to worry about the flushing part

Everything is just automatic.. as you can see in the photo for (soap, water, hand dryer)

I had this really funny experience yesterday with one of the new 'modern' public toilets!!!

So I was having this hike with a friend, when I noticed something blinking. It was one of the new public toilets with this little green blinker.
As you go inside, you'd hear the 'you have ten minutes then the door will open automatically...'

The cool part was just after that, you'd get this classical music playing for as long as you're there... !!!

That is so funky!

This is the latest of my scrapbooking -3-. (after this -1- and this -2-)

The last of my 'two years' collection. Now I guess I will have to wait another two years or so for the next scrapbooking album.

It was just in time to celebrate our 'two years' wedding anniversary. I love you T.

The Hangover

I can't remember the last time I watched a movie that made me laugh THIS hard! It's just unbelievable.. it's fun, fun, fun from beginning to end.

My cheecks and mouth hurt from all the laughing... and the greatest thing was that everyone left with a big smile ..

It was definitely one of the funniest movies I've ever seen!
It reminds me of 'death at a funeral' and 'happy go lucky' !

I absolutely loved it.

The BALLY Blonde

I have always wanted to get a 'BALLY' thing at some point or another.. but Im afraid their new Villemot Collection is so out of this world.

For me Bally represented class and elegance.. I assume they wanted to extend their target market, by appealing to more segments. Though I believe in order to do so you need to stick to your image and values instead of creating a totally different image.

What do you think?
You like?!

Why would they come up with such a disgusting commercial!!!

WHY!!? This is not fun.. this is Ewww

And then ironically they end it by saying.. 'Share the Rainbow, Taste the Rainbow'. Well what rainbow? There is absolutely no rainbow after seeing this!

Am I the only one to notice?

dark Pink/ red blush is replacing the bronze blush.

Even the news presenters these days have red cheeks!

I think it's cool.

Time for a change.. we've had the bronze look for so long..

why to avoid being friends with single women

Well i can't generalize here, and I can't say all single women are alike.. but maybe it has to do with the country, age, or the different personalities and perspectives.
So for all the single women who are reading this post- don't take it personally.. Im talking about some, or let me say a percentage of the single women I happen to know.. or Im being introduced to..

Women after marriage happen to have completely different interests, thoughts, views and ideas..

here are some of the things single women would often do - when in an outing, party or whatever:
1- flirt all the time.. with any and every single man who happens to be in the same place at the same time.
2- they like to get all the attention.. they talk talk talk, and never shut up

3- some of the things they would say.. 'unlike me, you're lucky...', or 'this is because I am single, when you have a partner it's different.. ', or 'i've been single for a long time it's not even funny..', or 'of course you don't know!!!.. you're married'.. they make you feel bad, odd and out of place

They create a group of single women.. and you are definitely not welcome there

4- they would talk louder & laugh louder..
5- only one thing matters to them.. when and where and how to meet the 'one' - they wouldn't be interested to talk or hear about anything else

6- Attention! Attention! Attention.. they starve for attention

7- they would have almost no shared interests with married women
8- jealousy & bitterness can often be sensed and felt
9- when not around men- they are nice and all, but when men are there they switch.. you wouldn't know them.. they turn into strangers
10- They give the impression that their life is more fun, more active, more interesting.. when on the contrary.. all they want and wish for is a major change.

Amman's Cats *&$@=@!$ Sydney's Birds

I have always thought that Amman's cats are rude. As in they don't move, they think the streets, gardens, cars belong to them.. and if they are resting under the car, they wouldn't move an inch no matter how hard you try.. so you end up waiting and waiting before going anywhere..

I heard of many things that Sydney's birds do.. Im used to them walking and flying in McDonald's or Hungry Jack's. And I often see waiters in outdoor cafes -especially those that are close to the Darling Harbour- telling people not to feed any, or the whole place would be attacked.. they come in groups, and it's not a joke..

But what happened today is just unbelievable. As we were eating french fries, I had this one half in my mouth and was holding the other half so close to my mouth.. a bird came from behind me and took it away.. just from between my fingers!!

it happened so fast, and all I saw was a shadow and felt something wet... but I didn't understand what happened or how it happened!

that was shocking!

I have always said that Sydney's birds are similar -or remind me - of Amman's cats. But now I seriously believe they are even worse..

I put the fries away.. no more for me!
