DAY 59 - Just the two of us :)

Finally, after a lazy saturday we up a notch and be un lazy for a few hours and drive ourselves to the
it's about 1 hour or less to reach the Palmeirinhas

I bet you guys cant see this clearly but it is 32°C which is normal for an early morning here in Luanda

And here is kilomètre quatorze

i dont know what happened here just a snap of my feet and mon coeur's fingers :)

on our way....

i like this picture and this is just before we turn to go to Palmeirinhas

Finally we choose this cabana as our picnic spot and inside you can see the sign 1000Kw thats how much these types of cabana is here

Getting ready for the BBQ.
Raymond calling the security guy and me starting to gather some dry wood to start the BBQ going

We bought two tiny cast iron cooker to make our individual soup with chicken /carrots /leeks and water and seasoned with some salt and pepper
And next we had the Chops too :)
The cooking part is easy but the fire making is hard but once it burns it really burns and with my tiny cast iron cooker it only took just 8 minutes to make our chicken soup yummy :)
then the chops just took us roughly 10 minutes
ah finally we had the BBQ going and here is the end product of it :)

While waiting for our BBQ to cook we went swimming and look at the prestine beach :)

and i managed to catch a photo of this eagle hovering close to our picnic area looking for food.

some fun in the sun :) is marvelous and now it's time to have some shut eye :)

and raymond said yes yes yes to the sudgestion of having a short nap under the hut :)

there he goes napping happily :)

reading's hard to concentrate when you have this in front of you......look at below pic :)

a view of this not too far away from our picnic cabana and wow that is one nice tushies :)

Then for a bit of snap! snap! and togetherness moment before we have to pack up and head home.

If you want to know why we had our hast on during swimming is because of this :) it was 41°C!

DAY 58 - Chillaxing on a lazy saturday...

We are lazy!

Yes we are both lazy on this fine warm saturday not only we woke up late but we also put on our official "Vacance" T shirt of our lasting memory of "East Meets West" summer wedding + holidays back in sabah in 2009. When we wear this T-shirt, it brings us a lot of memories of our wedding and holidays with family and warm fuzzy feelings just crept into us, very nice feeling indeed :)

Actually why we adorn this T-shirt is because once again we are planning for our grand vacance which is in May and we spent the whole day with the callendar of month May printed out and filling it in with prospective place to go and i just love it when we are doing this :)

And finally its all finished and done with and now we are ready for the month of May! there are still some final bookings to be done with but our air tickets are all purchased and ready now :)

 So here is the..
bleu , blanc, , rouge  
team :)

france and sabah have the same colours in their flag just that the colours are arrange on a different orientation see what i mean? :)

And here is the logo on our shirt courtesy of our T-Shirt creator Mr Melvin Ho :)
I gave him the idea and he transformed it to this. :)
So if you want to create logo's and shirts and all go see this charming and handsome of a guy and most of all he is really funny and friendly and so easy to work with i wouldnt want anyone else :)
 xie xie nie again Melvin, your contribution to us is priceless indeed  :)

DAY 56 - I'm a student again :)

Yeahhhh! I'm going to be a college student again :)

It seems like a dream but it's really happening and i'm finding myself going back to school again after so long and what more i'm doing a totally different path from what i have been doing during my uni days.

When i was living in France, i was exposed to a totally different way of life there where Bio things and all natural goodness is very much incoporated in their daily lives. As for me it used to be no difference to me what i put in my mouth to eat and now i know the difference and because of this i want to know more about nutritions and anything about natural products and natural substance that will benefit us with better health. So, i started to investigate on it and finally i got what i needed and that is distance learning!

So this course is going to educate me more on natural health as a whole and when i do graduate i will then have the diploma that will enable me to be a Natural health consultant, in which i can be a natural health consultant interms of alternative medicine, vital hygiene, nutrition & degenerative diseases and the next level is the natural health educator that allows me to give seminars and educate others on nutritions and food. And finally level three will make me be qualified as a Natural Health Technician where i can work as a therapist in a health care centre.

I'm very eager and excited to start the course which is in March and i have my very understanding and supportive husband to thank for all this as he is the one who encouraged me to study again and put so much efforts in making it real for me and who pushes me to go beyond what i can bring myself to.
Je t'aime mon coeur! I guess when it comes to acquiring knowledge, we are never too late or too old to begin! We are learning everyday and i guess my studies will keep me busy now :)

DAY 55 - Le Papillon :)

I came across this movie a long time ago while i was learning my french and it is still in my memory and somehow whenever i listen to this song it makes me smile and just think of happy things and be thankful always.

Hope you guys enjoyed this song as much as i do and one other thing...i had this mp3 song since 2007 and thats during the time me and hubby met and from that on i had this song as my ring tone whenever he calls so i would know that it is my Frenchie that is calling :) Fond memories indeed but guess what? i still have the ring tone with me and it still rings only for my one and only Frenchie :)

Im not sure though where i got the song in the first place perhaps from Amey or Daphne..not sure now :)  But whomever you are...merci beaucoup! :)
