Halloween in Cardiff

Anytime I visit a place, a country, I like to explore and discover the places, people, their traditions, food, everything that is new for me. And I recommend you to explore everything, food, drink, sex, customs, culture, games, music, work, fun, anything you can. In this way you will have more experience, knowledge, you should try new tastes, new feelings, live every moment in different way, and break the daily routine. You will find a lot of wonderful things that deserve to be experienced. It’s true that sometimes you can fail but this means also experience. So, just experience the Halloween 🙂 during the day So let’s go to Cardiff and Halloween. Firstly, many events have been inside the Cardiff Castle all this week; today and tomorrow is The Highwayman, an interactive show, that attracts many tourists and not only. I took part in the hunting together with the masked

shopping in Cardiff – III – Victoria’s Secret

Victoria ‘s Secret I don’t need any introduction to this article 🙂  Here, in  this store, is a delirium, a madness. Don’t miss this store if you go to Cardiff, London or anywhere in UK – there are 18 stores. Do not miss it, it should be on your list. Not only museums, castles, etc. You should visit Victoria’s Secret store too. You will say I am a paranoid person, but I am not. I would have thought the same if someone would have told me before about the store. It happened some time ago, when a friend of mine, whenever she returned from USA, was very excited about Victoria ’s Secret. Yes, ok, I listened to her, I didn’t understand what could be so excited in a store full of bras, panties and cosmetics, I let her enjoy it, I listened but that was all. On the other hand,

sa mancam cirese si capsune!

am mancat cirese pe saturate imi plac mult ciresele. dar nu oricare, ci acele cirese carora li se spune “cirese de mai”. acele cirese mari, rosii, carnosase, sa simt gustul cand mananc, dulce – acrisor (mai mult spre dulce). da, am gasit la Lidl in Cardiff, la kg, cirese de mai. scumpe, 5,99 £ (mai mult de 30 lei/kg). am stat in dubiu sa iau sau nu, dupa care am hotarat sa iau. am facut socoteala ca la Tesco le gasesc doar la caserola, 200 g / 2 £. deci, astea de la Lidl erau ieftine 🙂 si aratau asa ca alea de acasa. am luat 1 kg. alea de la Tesco sunt aproape la fel de frumoase, dar nu au gustul ala adevarat (sau ceea ce numim noi, gust adevarat). azi m-am saturat de cirese 🙂 asta a fost masa mea de seara, delicioasa 🙂 . la Tesco in schimb au

barbatul din London Jubilee Line Underground

am scris London Jubilee Line Underground si nu linia de metrou Jubilee din Londra pentru ca… e clar 🙂 . dar sa vorbim despre el, barbatul din London Jubilee Line. saten inchis, inalt, subtire (dar nu uscat), bine imbracat, ceea ce nu prea vezi pe aici, costum,  pantofi impecabili (nestalciati), ochi albastru intens, parul dat cu gel (asta nu prea mi se aseaza mie bine pe retina, dar in tot contextul era ok). London Finchey Road Station mai aveam vreo doua ore pana sa iau autobuzul de Cardiff si vroiam sa ajung pe Bond Street la Tiffany & Co pentru ca imi plac foarte tare argintariile lor. si de ce nu, pentru ca nici n-am apucat sa savurez zilele astea la Londra pentru ca, in primul rand, m-am dus cu treaba, apoi a fost o vreme de cacat, ploaie, vant turbat, frig. nu cred c-am mai prins asa vreme urata

Principality Stadium Cardiff, un stadion adevarat

si pentru ca azi este o zi atat de importanta pentru Cardiff, m-am gandit sa va prezint Principality Stadium Cardiff. nu va speriati, nu am sa ma apuc sa va povestesc nimic, cuvintele sunt inutile, o sa va las sa savurati filmul de prezentare. este mai mult decat elocvent si va duce un pic in atmosfera de aici. nu sunt un fan al fotbalului, dar sunt un fan al evenimentelor de orice fel. iar un eveniment de o asemenea amploare nu poate fi trecut cu vederea, sau eu nu-l pot trece cu vederea 🙂 doar cateva cuvinte despre Principality Stadium cunoscut si sub numele de Millenium Stadium. capacitate: 74.500 locuri al treilea cel mai mare stadion din Marea Britanie. a fost construit in 1999 pentru Rugby World Cup. constructia a inceput in 1997, a fost finalizata in 1999 si a costat £114 milioane. primul meci care s-a jucat pe acest

Cardiff UEFA Champions League Trophy

Cardiff inainte de finala UEFA Champions League

Cardiff e un oras linistit, cuminte, cu turisti in cantitate mai mica sau mai mare, in functie de anotimp. dar saptamana asta si in special zilele astea, cu cat se apropie mai mult ziua de sambata cand aici, in Cardiff, are loc finala UEFA Campions League, devine din ce in ce mai aglomerat, mai agitat si de ce nu mai frumos. as sta pe strada toata ziua (daca n-as avea si altele de facut), fara sa fac neaparat ceva anume, doar sa stau si sa ma uit si sa ma destind si delectez cu ceea ce se intampla pe starda 🙂 turisti in Cardiff in primul rand, acum in Cardiff, e foarte multa lume, colorata, de prin toate colturile lumii, agitata, sa viziteze, sa faca cumparaturi, sa manance si bineinteles sa bea. se stie, astia beau mult si bine si cine vine in UK respecta traditia 🙂 . de mancat, la

servicii in UK – pensatul

ieri am incercat metoda pensatului cu ata 🙂 ok. sa fiu clara de la inceput, nu am fost niciodata in stare sa ma pensez singura pentru ca nu vad bine, chiar si in oglinda-lupa, nu reusesc sa corelez imagina din oglinda cu miscarile, ma ciupesc, nu, era un calvar si am renuntat de mult. asa ca merg la cosmetica. in Romania, fata mea care ma penseaza, epileaza, tratamente si ce mai am nevoie in acest domeniu, foloseste penseta. aici, in UK, nu am gasit pe nimeni sa foloseasca penseta, doar cu ceara si am trecut la ceara. ieri am incercat chestia asta cu ata. este o metoda care se practica frecvent in Orientul Mijlociu. ata ordinara, de cusut, se infasoara intr-un anume fel pe degete si… e o tehnica speciala 🙂 . acum, nu stiu ce sa spun, parerile sunt impartite. se pare ca marele plus la acest fel de

shopping in Cardiff – partea a III-a – Victoria’ Secret

Victoria’s Secret nu mai am nevoie de nicio introducere 🙂 e delir aici, nu ratati daca veniti in Cardiff (sau in Londra, sau oriunde in UK, sunt 18 magazine in total). nu ratati, puneti-l pe lista asa cum puneti un muzeu. o sa spuneti ca sunt paranoica, dar nu, nu sunt. asa as fi spus si eu daca mi-ar fi spus cineva asa  ceva. chiar mi s-a  intamplat cu ceva timp in urma, cand aveam o prietena care tot mergea in America si care de fiecare data cand se intorcea era extrem de entuziasmata de Victoria’s Secret. da, ok, o ascultam, nu prea intelegeam ce putea fi atat de excitant intr-un magazin de chiloti si sutiene si ceva cosmetice, o lasam sa se bucure si o ascultam, dar atat. pe de alta parte, trebuie sa recunosc ca eu, de vreo 17 de ani incoace, nu port decat lenjerie Victoria’s Secret.

shopping in Cardiff – part II

Today I’ll tell you about Poundland. I don’t know how I’ve forgotten the first time I’ve written about shopping to mention Poundland or Poundworld.  As its name says anything you buy is 1 Pound or 1£ (GBP). Call it whatever you want. There are 2 Poundland and 1 Poundworld in Cardiff, in the area where I live. Poundland chain has more stores than Poundworld, they sell almost the same things, except for a few differences. When I want to buy something I go to all the 3 stores and it is almost impossible not to find what I want even in one store  🙂 What do you find in these stores? Just about anything you want, less clothing. There are only a few things for kids: socks, gloves etc. Cosmetics: all kinds of cosmetics, deodorants, hair dye products, perfumes not originals but the design of the boxes and the bottles

back to school in Cardiff

school has started on September 28th. I have come back in Cardiff; sincerely I couldn’t wait because, although school means essays, many things to learn, preparing for courses, I like this place. I like school although I am not crazy about essays, but I learn a lot of interesting things. I have many friends from all over the world. Not real friends, let’s say colleagues, because I think that real friend means someone who is always by your side not only physically speaking, he is the one who helps you in need, unconditional. If you have in a life time real friends and their number is greater than the number of your fingers from one hand, you are happy. But let‘s get back to school and my friends in Wales ( I prefer to call them friends not colleagues). the first friend My first friend I met here is from
