This time of the year is the most wonderful for me! I wish, I am with my family back home to celebrate it…then Christmas would be merrier and happier. I am hoping one day, I will go home for good and spend the happiest times of my life with my family.

Anyway, there is something I would like to share with you today. This is how we celebrate New Year in my home country. At New Year’s Eve, we usually play some instruments or gadgets to start the year. I would say, the louder, the better. It is our belief to cast away the bad spirits. Read more… »

Hello April! Hello spring season! I have to admit  spring  is one of my favorite times  of the year. When the weather gets nice and the first spring flowers started to blossom in my backyard, aren’t these fantastic? Yes, there are indeed some flowers  that are growing in the  garden right now. Tulips, hyacinths, daffodils and more are currently blooming!

This is also the sign that the spring festival is slowly starting in many parts of the world  especially in Europe.  There is a spring festivals going on in some cities in our area.  I can’t wait to visit such festivities so soon. It has been a long time since I was not there.  This is the fault of my full time job that keeps me busy. lol! Read more… »

Yes, Fasching or carnival season is here again especially in the German-speaking countries like in Austria, Germany and Switzerland. I was watching some Fasching or carnival shows  in a Germany television awhile ago and I was quite entertain with it. I actually love it better when I see it in person.

As you know this season is also the season to have fun. One reason why I love witnessing Fasching or Carnival parade in Germany is watching the street entertainers especially the musicians who are performing with their musical instruments like portable keyboard, guitars, drums, cymbals and more. If you witness any carnival parade in Germany or any countries celebrating it, you will surely have fun!

Carnival snapshots to be posted soon! Don’t miss watching this event when you are in Germany.

It was a wonderful day despite the cloudy weather in Budweis, known as České Budějovice in Czech language. Visiting the largest city in the South Bohemian Region as well as its political and commercial capital was a lot of fun. I did enjoyed my walk in the area especially at the Ottokar II Square where the Christmas market is currently held.

The building with the 3 towers is the Town Hall with its murals and bronze gargoyles, and the 16th century Black Tower (“Černá věž”).

One of the things, I love when visiting an event like this is to taste its local foods. I tasted a lot that time. I enjoyed watching and listening to the choir who performed that day.  Read more… »

Hello September! Hello folks! What’s up? I hope you are having a wonderful time during this month. I am doing good so far and I do not want to complain about life as it is still beautiful inspite of many trials and hardships. There are more things to be thankful of than things to complain. One of it is the blessing to wake-up everyday. More on that, there are a lot of things to deviate ourselves to make us happy and one of it is the Oktoberfest that is going on right now in Munich, Bavaria’s capital city in Germany.
