Let’s do a little Q&A 🤗

Crete, Greece
*Photos from Crete, in Greece 🇬🇷

I used to do these, back in the day… and they were kinda fun ! I’d find Q&A online, or even get some questions via emails, and I’d just compile those and answer on my blog. I’m feeling nostalgic, so let’s do a quick one again !

Where do you like to vacation ?
You probably already know that one, but it’s on Crete island in Greece. I don’t need to explain why, it’s self-explanatory, especially if you read my blog 😅. Besides that, my favorite vacay is always just seeing the fam & friends, which are scattered between the USA, Switzerland and Serbia !

For Sichuan cuisine, come to Trantranzai !

For Sichuan cuisine, come to Trantranzai !

What a change of scene !

This restaurant is one of our fave with my boyfriend ❤️ we love noodle soup made with that special Sichuan pepper. Sichuan pepper has an incredible taste. We love it so much we even bought some to use in our homemade Asians dishes. If you don’t know what it is, don’t be a fool and try it out 😂

So Trantranzai (that’s the name of the place), is quite famous in Paris. Not only is the decor the coolest; you really feel like you’re in a little joint in the middle of nowhere-China. But also the food is gorgeously good ! Ugh… yum.

I don’t know what they do to their noodles, but they’re always perfect. It’s a fun experience to be there, you can also choose how spicy you want your food to be (my boyfriend goes for 4, while I’m not that adventurous… I take 0 🤣). The only thing I’m not a fan of, are the desserts. They’re a bit bland. I’m also not a fan of bubble tea, it’s too sweet for me.

Rating for this restaurant is 2.5/10
I can’t grade them well because the last two times we went there, the waiters were super arrogant with us. They ignored us when we tried to order, and then forgot half our order. Also one of them put a finger in the soup they were giving us, which is completely unsanitary.

Also one of them in particular talked back to me on the stupidest thing ever : I was extremely tired because I have chronic pain from my rheumatoid arthritis, and I had been walking despite the pain, couldn’t wait to finally sit to rest my feet. So when she asked me what I wanted to order, I said “the vegetarian soup” paused and added “with vegetarian” which I know sounds stupid, but I got mixed up. Especially because I heard my boyfriend say before me “the vegetarian soup, with chicken” and then she made such a fuss out of that !

Basically looking at me like I was the dumbest person ever, telling me “what do you even mean, that doesn’t make any sense, the vegetarian is vegetarian obviously” I said “I just want the vegetarian soup. I was specifying that”. I ended up justifying my mistake ! Which I didn’t want to, tired like I was. She kept going, she wouldn’t let it go, she looked at me & hovering and kept saying “why are you saying that, what you’re saying makes no sense, what do you want to eat” and I said “the vegetarian soup, just that” and she continued “yes but why would you say vegetarian soup with vegetarian” and my boyfriend stepped in finally ! To say “she wants the vegetarian soup, we’ve ordered now”.

She was so annoyed at us, it was like she wanted to fight me, I felt so uncomfortable, she was really scary and mean to me. I don’t know why I triggered her so badly, I didn’t want to. Yes I made a mistake in my speech, but it’s not that big of a deal… seriously. I actually wanted to leave, but my boyfriend was too hungry for their noodles, which yes are good, but not worth being treated like that. I assure you there’s other noodle places in Paris.

Switzerland road trip

I’m so glad I had this little vacay time with my bestie ❤️ It was an extended weekend I’ll never forget ! I hope I get to go back this year as well, as this is just memories from last year. Movement has been so hard on me with my autoimmune disease, but I’m a wellness warrior. I love traveling, so I’ll do whatever I need to get back in shape for that 🤗

Oneiroi, Director’s Cut – found footage

This is one of my first short films I made, back in the day when I had dreams of becoming a filmmaker and was living in Los Angeles. This movie was made in 2013, and for some reason we did two edits…

I had the first one short, made by a friend who already knew how to edit. Then I made my own, which I titled so humbly “Director’s Cut’ it was twice the length, but for some reason the people I ended up showing this little flick to, enjoyed the longer version better.

Then I don’t really know what happened, but I lost the movie file in one of my hard drives, and the download website where I had stored it, had deleted it. I thought I would never see my version again, until today… I stumbled upon it, exactly where I thought : one of my old hard drives.

So if you have the patience to watch this old thing, that was made without any means or actual budget, and is frankly quite hilarious to see how we managed to do anything for the story, then please, enjoy !

Having a job is cool, but everyday ?

My best friend surprised me with a quick visit to Paris !
The day before I left for my summer vacay to Crete island. We had an amazing day walking around the city, which is absolutely gorgeous at that time of the year. I always miss her so much, so when we see each other, it’s a moment !
