For the past 2 months, my daughter’s been driving us crazy drumming the beat of the movie ‘Pirates of the Caribbean Theme song’ on any thing she could lay her hands. Her teacher had been teaching them the rhythm beat of this song in their music class.

My daughter loved it and so … 🙄

Ta-Ta Ta-Ta… Ta-Ta Ta-Ta… Ta-dum …. The beat echoed around on in the house, driving me and my husband round the bend.

Well if you can’t beat them, join them …. so voila!  🤔 While I was trying to think of the theme of her birthday party…..

This year, she celebrate together with her schoolmate as there was only a day difference.

Perhaps the sharing part made it extra special. They were excited about being part of helping me making the birthday cards and they had each other to share the excitement of their upcoming birthday event.

Pictures above says it all, don’t you think so?

Besides the quote above, I absolutely adore this other quote from this movie series for I think it to be so true in life.

‘The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem. Do you understand?” – Captain Jack Sparrow

I bid you good day! 💋

Lots of love …..

Diving from The Old Bridge : All the world’s a stage …

HD

On Saturday, September 24th, 2016, the Red Bull Cliff Diving Event was more spectacular than ever, to the delight of the tens of thousands of spectators.

Cliff Divers from around the world came to the iconic Mostar Bridge set amidst the picturesque backdrop to perform extraordinary feats of dare. Amongst, the charismatic Orlando Duque, the irrepressible Jonathan Paredes, dynamic Gary Hunt and the list goes on.

Journalists with their gigantic cameras swarmed around to the front of the diving scene.

This year, notably was special as the event includes women cliff divers. Also not to be missed, the Red Bull Extreme Sport Sky Divers.

The top achievers for this event are Czech Michal Navratil, Great Britain Gary Hunt, American David Colturi, Australian Rhianan Iffland, Canadian Lysanne Richard and American Cesilie Carlton.

In my eyes, as I am sure is the opinions of all who were at this event, all participants are already winners to have perform these daring performances.

The race of the Red Bull Cliff Diving Competition is far from over. It holds tournaments around the world. We wish the divers best of luck in their next competitions.

The excitement, the bohemian rock style music beat that was put together, the friendly cheering crowd in naturally scintillating environment took our breath away, simply unforgettable …

“It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.” William Shakespeare

Being a bookworm, whilst the idea of personally doing extreme sport would be a bit too far fetched, to be part of it as a spectator, one can appreciate and wonder at the beauty and fluidity of these sports.

NB:

Attire for the event: Mediterranean Casual Smart

Light comfortable clothes, waterproof light cosmetics for ladies, a bling or two (nothing ostentatious) and beautiful flip-flops for sinking your feet into the river.
