“Not all treasure’s silver and gold, mate.” – Captain Jack Sparrow, Pirates of Caribbean

imageimageimageimageimageimage

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 celebrated 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 …..

In celebration of Women’s Day…..

Handcrafted chocolates, delicious muffins, exotic orchids ....

Handcrafted chocolates, delicious muffins, exotic orchids ….

When you see abundance of flowers selling on the streets and in every possible shops in Bosnia & Herzegovina, it is very apparent to all that Women’s Day has arrived. Valentine’s Day is celebrated here as well as Teachers’ Day but this is the day to celebrate not just with mothers, teachers, but with all women in each individual’s respective life.

Traditionally, it is the most celebrated amongst the three events. Flowers are given customarily to women. Gifts are sometimes given instead. Flowers don’t come in bouquet forms necessarily. They also come in little pots. Working women sometimes are given gifts from their employers. School children usually bring small gifts to their teachers. Or in our case, parents with children in the same class got together to get gifts for the class teachers. It is always a great excuse to visit one’s favourite chocolate boutique! 😉

I was most delighted to receive a red rose from one of the cafes I regularly frequented. 😊

What better way to start a day than with a great coffee, catching up with lady friends and receiving a rose @ one of your favourite cafe!

Wishing all ladies A HAppy Women’s Day! 💋

Every year, I tell my daughter that we might not have a birthday party next year. That the most important thing is that we have each other and our health. I felt that it was detriment to her well-being to know that ….

“Not everything in life one have to have. If it is very important, one can always work towards it.”

This year, we planned her birthday celebration a week after and we did not tell her until 2 days before the event. I am most proud that my daughter accepted the fact of no birthday party with stoic bravery. She made me laugh when she said she didn’t mind not having a party but when her friends started to ask her details of her birthday party. Her exact words: ” Earth, swallow me!” with a comical expression cracked me up. Her friends asked a day before her birthday. Used to giving, she had difficulty not having any to give. Other than that she was okay with a homemade meringue for her birthday.

You can imagine her surprise when we told her that she would be having her birthday party after all!

For her birthday cake, we ordered from the very same cake shop that we had previously ordered thrice from.

What can we say, excepting that we find ourselves very blessed to find a baker who is as thrilled as us over the creation of the birthday cake and the event.  Every time, we sent in our request, she and her team members would always be up for the challenge. This year, the baker and her team again exceeds our expectations.

My daughter’s excited squeals when she saw the cake, ” On my god! My cake is a carriage!!!” The children vying each other for the different parts of the cake and the floating balloons, the adults getting comfy and having a cozy chat made this a perfect event.

A dream is a wish your heart makes when you are fast asleep. –  Cinderella, Disney.
