Mihela Radulescu

From my point of view Mihaela is, above all, an extraordinary woman. And I say that not only because I have been invited to several TV shows hosted by her (I was in backstage), but also because I witnessed  a video shooting directed by her, having the opportunity of talking to her in her room, on backstage. And I saw Mihaela Radulescu as she is, as human been, not only as TV personality. the TV shows I cannot say I’ve outlined an opinion about her after those TV shows. What I noticed, with no doubt, was her flawless body, very beautiful, that beauty of strong people, those who know what they want, who have succeeded in life; with a short dialogue, strictly on subject, very direct and firm in the same time. She has a very beautiful body, sculpted at the gym, sincerely I think she has exaggerated with her

how much does a student spend on transport per month in the UK

Let’s see! In Romania, as in many countries, students use the transport, but much of them don’t buy tickets, I don’t know what the others do. I haven’t used the transport for years. But here, it’s different. It seems that the train is the most used mean of transport, it has stations in every town. It’s like a high speed tram, but it’s a train, Arriva Train Wales, it’s not luxury, but it is clean and civilized, I use it to go to University in Treforest, 4 stations. Usually, a ticket costs 6.80 GBP, it is expensive, but let’s see why. Firstly, you don’t seem to be embarrassed if you don’t have ticket. But let’s see how you can buy it; there are ticket machines in almost every station, especially in the big cities, you can buy it by cash or using the card. If the train comes and you

how much does it cost the student life in the UK – the food

I will write every time I have the occasion: send your children to study abroad, especially in the UK. Why UK? Because this country is known all over the world, the faculty is not paid, there are no fees in many countries, for example, UK, Denmark, etc, if we are talking about the 1st faculty, if it is the second one or master or MBA, you pay, but not the school only the transport, meal, accommodation. how much does it cost the food per month for a student in the UK If you are smart you can find good food at a reasonable price, I am talking about the products that expire in 2 days. Do not worry, you can find supermarkets everywhere, at least 2 supermarkets on a distance of about 500 meters. I have one in the corner, the next one Tesco Express and Sainsbury’s at 500 meters

back to school, student at 50 years old

Yes, as you read, I am student at 50 years old. It is an unique experience. But not in our country, in our education system, where everybody (colleagues and teachers) would have staring at you, asking you a lot of questions. Yes, I had the courage and I enrolled in a master in UK and, although I’ve had many doubts, I do not speak English very well, I’ve had to leave behind the comfort offered by my home, I haven’t known if I would be able to learn, to get accustomed to their education system (do not forget that I did a communist school) , I did it. It is a challenge that so far I can say that satisfies me completely. Don’t think it is easy, but not too hard for me. Here everything works according to certain rules, very well established, everybody has to follow them. It is

Brazilian experience in Cardiff

It was my son’s birthday a few days ago and we went out to buy him a present and then to eat something. I bought a pair of boots (40% discount for holiday in Cardiff), and then we went to the restaurant, Viva Brazil. Sometimes ago he told me about this restaurant with a very good Brazilian food. menu They have 2 menus: one with 4 types of meat and unlimited salads and dishes; the other one with everything unlimited. He chose the unlimited one, I chose that with 4 types of meat, because I am not allowed to eat too much meat, (200 gram/week), the truth is that, before knowing about my health problems, I ate a great quantity of meat :), now I am trying to limit it because of the pain I had in past. But that night I ate meat for 1 month :), we had

Mother’s Day in Cardiff

Actually, I wrote this story last year on Mother’s Day (at the Romanian section). The only thing I’ve changed is the period of celebrating. Last year, Mother’s Day was on March 15th and this year was yesterday, on  6th of March. I consider that the Mother’s Day is celebrating at the beginning of March, on a Sunday. Yesterday I did almost the same things that I did last year, with the difference that I did’t use the train 🙂  so, enjoy! 🙂 In UK is celebrating Mother’s Day, a funny idea for me as mother, but it seems to be the same day as March 8th in Romania, the difference is that in UK is Mother’s day, not Woman’s day. There are different dates in the world for celebrating Mother’s day but March 8th is the International Woman’s day, celebrated in the ex-communist countries. I prefer Woman’s day, Mother’s day

how I’ve decided to have a blog

The idea of having a blog came to me long time ago, but the decision of starting it I took when I divorced. I hate so much that man and I want to shout loudly all the bad things he had made me. Normally, I believe in solving the problems by yourself, with your family, but, when there is a risk of getting suffocating, when you are in that moment when you don’t trust anyone and anything, you think it’s better to tell others. I’ve decided to be an anonymous person, it’s better for the moment. Obviously, most of you will know my identity when I will send links and read my articles. This is want I want because in other case the category “The Deceased”, will be nonsense. About me Generally I am an understanding person and pacifist. I accept many things, I overlook a lot of things, some

why cocktailantistress?

Because, as I wrote in the article how to chose a name for your blog, I want to write about everything, a cocktail of subjects concerning what bothers me, what makes me happy or hysterical. I have the impression that, when I am writing, I can unburden my soul, I calm down, I share with you my joys and troubles, so this means anti-stress. Because I am thinking that you enjoy what you read, you can discover that you are not the only one who has problems or unpleasant experiences. This could be an anti-stress for you too. Cocktail because I will write stories, epigrams, dialogues, opinions about music, people, me and my friends, enemies, colleagues, neighbours, etc. I will laugh with you, I will cry, I will talk civilized or using curses, I will tell you good and bad jokes, I will be here with you, listening your opinions.

I know nothing about blog

Don’t laugh. I am ignorant. I’ve thought I should write about what had happened to me in past, what happens today, what I expect for tomorrow, life stories, warts and all, treacheries, sex. I should enjoy the moment and not be angry anymore, I should love, hate, be courageous, fear, the rhymes of Adrian Paunescu “Totusi, iubirea” (still, the love). in my opinion, just listen without seeing the images (sorry, I don’t think that is relevant for you, but I translated the blog post from Romanian). I know nothing about a blog, I know what I would like to write here, I like telling stories, I would like to succeed in convincing you to visit my blog, but I know I need your help, you should read my articles and comment  the subjects, giving me advice, criticizing me, tell me if it is ok what I am doing here. I am
