I-the-Child

May 30, 2010

In the eve of the children’s day, the Bulgarian children’s portal Az-Deteto (I the Child) turned 8 years old. It was celebrated with lots of games, competitions and fun in a lively atmosphere at the Sofia Zoo. And each child won a prize! On the Photo: Alice from the other¬†Wonderland ūüôā¬†

And the cake, cake, CAKE above Рit was SO delicious!

10 :-)

They say: ‘Your happiness score rises when you stop chasing happiness and start choosing happiness.’ Inspired by this quiz¬†from Oprah’s site, on a 0-10 scale, 10 seems like a reasonable choice ūüôā

@ Fran√ßois Pignon marathon

May 28, 2010

The French movie recipe when a woman quits her husband for her lover inevitably creates laughable situations. 

L’emmerdeur¬†(The Pain in the Neck) – instead¬†of completing his mission of taking an important¬†witness’ life, a hitman saves the pain in the neck Fran√ßois¬†Pignon’s one and gets into unexpected series of troubles.

In Le d√ģner de cons¬†(The Dinner Game) – an imbecile circle¬†invites imbeciles to weekly¬†dinners. The most imbecile invitee¬†wins the title ‘King of the Imbeciles’. I find it hard to¬†decide who were more imbecile – the invitees or the inviters. Fran√ßois¬†Pignon at his best.

New World Symphony

May 27, 2010

Enjoyed a fantastic New Symphony Orchestra performance of DvoŇô√°k’s¬†New World Symphony on the occasion of AmCham‘s¬†15th anniversary in Bulgaria. The Symphony that is said that Neil Armstrong took a recording of to the Moon during the Apollo 11 mission in 1969.

On fairy tale wave

May 27, 2010

A collection of Finnish, Irish, Russian … fairy tales tuned me on black and white wave these days.¬†Amazing how tales have features and plots in common with each other no matter where they come from.¬†In fairy tales¬†dragons often do not last long. And good¬†creatures triumph and laugh last. Like in life.

Istanbul 2010

May 25, 2010

A delightful long weekend at Istanbul 2010¬†– European Capital of Culture, where at all times the vibrant atmosphere of the city offers a lot do, see and enjoy. Hopefully next¬†time walking through the winding streets of Tophane,¬†√áukurcuma¬†Street¬†No: 24 will be unveiled, unveiling all the objects related to ‘The Museum of Innocence’.

In the meantime, however, a number of small art galleries don’t fail to surprise with provocative¬†ideas, like¬† PiARRWORKS¬†Istanbul – ‘If you kill the devil in me, you will also kill the angel’. More sights to enjoy further down … the narrow spectacular streets.
