You might have noticed that I, for whatever reason, adore cats, felinae and owls. I regard both as the most beautiful and cutest animals and collect everything that has to do with them. Or at least take pictures of it. My boyfriend went crazy in NY, let pictures speak: Yes, they had a lot of […]


Today we want to learn the words “cherry” and “cherry blossom”, since these are two beautiful things. I hope that I can use these words once I’m in China: 1) to buy fresh cherries and order cherrypies 2) to give my springtime photographs a dramatically authentic name (btw yes I know, the inscriptions on the […]

A wide range of dishes passed by, from cucumber sticks, soup, steamed veggie spring […]


Looking forward to Expo 2010, this video does a good job in presenting Shanghai from its best sides. I for my part am once again completely wrapped in anticipation, see for yourself:


So… my 19th birthday was crowned by my parent’s cool present: the cute 10.1” acer aspire one netbook with installed flambant neuf Windows 7. It is black with light glitter effects and really comfortable to handle, weighs less than 1 kilogram and can be carried around in a casual handbag… and it fits an airplane’s […]
