NYE in London 2011-2012

I've been to other countries for New Year's Eve, but London is by far the worst on the entertainment chapter for this particular day. It's pretty much non-existent.. Where are the live shows and the concerts.. the food stalls, the events? Where are the all night long fireworks in the whole city to make the night seem day? What is the mayor doing? 10 minutes of fireworks only in the center with radio, come on Radio BBC to entertain the crowds!! Even the Romans knew better on this chapter and this was centuries ago.. haven't we learnt anything? The masses need food and a good show!! What is there to do on the streets in London on the NYE?? Nothing! Squeeze like sardine and freeze from an early time for a disappointing night.. Now I'm asking, does it really worth the trouble? For London this is not something to be very proud of, as everyone living here, will advice you to DON'T go!


I've seen New Cid cosmetics - Hero collection a 4 piece set for£19.99 and I didn't buy it then. Now I so want to get it and there is no where to be found at this price.. It was in Tk-Maxx before Christmas :(

Apps for frogs :)))))

Bare with the advert as the clip comes after:


I can't stand when I receive spam like this: "Great post, I admire the writing style :) A little off topic here but what theme are you using? Looks pretty cool." and at the end to see a link of some website like acne treatment, web hosting, penis enlargement,fake passport ids, natural remedies, etc.. so annoying!!

Power of Organizing Christmas Day

Since I like having my friends around me I often choose to organize the parties for us. This time around the Christmas gathering is one of them. I bought all the food, everyone is informed where and when to come. I sorted out the music for this evening, the movie, the menu and I got all the confirmations for who is coming, plus the sleep overs. I got my red outfit sorted and since is Christmas we will all play a gift game where we will all leave home with something to remember and hopefully a good portion of laughter. I'm pretty excited about the whole day as for me is more about the togetherness then anything else. Today the food should arrive. The presents are wrapped, the tree is decorated, I just need to do some cleaning. Counting days left :)

Ice-cream maker

I was looking at Argos for ice-cream makers.. what they have is more like a blender as eventually you still have to add the mix in the fridge and get it out on the next day to be ice-cream.. why would you call a product ice-cream maker if you can't get the mix to be iced!!

Back to Romanian Stray dogs

CCR amana pentru 11 ianuarie 2012 dezbaterea legii eutanasierii cainilor fara stapan"Conform sesizarii PSD-PNL, problema eutanasierii si a conditiilor in care este dispusa aceasta este "principala problema a legii", eutanasierea este o masura extrema, care contravine prevederilor referitoare la drepturile animalelor recunoscute de instrumente internationale, reglementari comunitare cu caracter obligatoriu.

Documentul releva ca eutanasierea este contrara principiilor si prevederilor Declaratiei Universale a Drepturilor Animalelor, proclamata la Paris, in 1978.

"Legea adoptata nu face referire la legislatia de protectie a animalelor, nu include niciun principiu de protectie si asigurare a respectarii drepturilor animalelor si, in general, prevederile de protectie a drepturilor acestora sunt minime", afirma sursa citata."

Totusi cum spune titlul se amana nu se anuleaza!! ff trist!!



Lately for me was a stressful time to work my head around on how the British system works.. I need an adviser to enlighten me..

Aupair duties

More details about being an aupair for who wants to know more..

What is an Au Pair? Guidelines for Au Pairs and Host Families participating in the BAPAA Au Pair Programme in Britain. Other countries have similar programmes - see "Go Abroad as an Au Pair".Individual families or agencies may wish to improve on these benefits, but these should be offered as a minimum.Nature of the Programme: The au pair programme is a cultural exchange programme. Au pairs must be welcomed as a member of the family.Age: Traditionally, an au pair is aged 17 – 27, however an au pair without visa requirements (from EU) can be older.Hours on duty: Au pairs can be on duty from 25 – 35 hours per week if they are from an EU country. This is limited to 25 hours per week and 2 evenings per week if the au pair is from Bulgaria or Romania. These hours can be spread out over 5 days per week. Longer hours are usually referred to as ‘au pair plus’. Many au pair agencies also offer ‘Mother’s help’ positions; thi…

This is an international petition urging the European Commission to stop the extermination of stray dogs in Romania

Every day we receive more disturbing images and eyewitness accounts of the massive "canine genocide" occurring in Romania. This group was founded to collect a million signatures -- one per dog slaughtered -- which will be presented to the European Commission, urging authorities to address the inhumanity and establish solid animal welfare laws in Romania and throughout Europe. We ask the European P…

Romanian Massacre!


Must watch

Corruption in Romania - kills animals to get money for elections

in perspectiva anilor electorali viitori, Puterea de la Bucuresti a decis sa reinstituie, prin lege, eutanasierea cainilor comunitari, ceea ce va insemna o afacere electorala de peste 300 de milioane de euro. De ce? Pentru ca experientele alegerilor din 2004 incoace au scos la iveala un “necesar” de 100 de milioane de euro pentru fiecare campanie elecorala. Asadar, localele si parlamentarele din 2012, dar si prezidentialele din 2013 ar fi asigurate pe pielea bietilor catei. O miza de asemenea anvergura mobilizeaza exemplar fortele portocalii din Guvern si din Parlamentul Romanei, in incercarea disperata de a adopta proiectul legislativ PLX nr.912/2007, modificat, la Camera decizionala, prin introducerea eutanasierii. Proiectul mortii se va supune votului marti, 7 iunie 2011, in plenul Camerei Deputatilor.In scopul justificarii formale a fondurilor de 300 de milioane de euro, pretinse de la Bugetul de stat, s-a recurs la tot felul de stratageme . Spre exemplu, deputatul PDL Stefan Pirp…

Christmas Card

My hat collection :)

I'm attracted to certain hats.. it could be the either for the weirdness, the colours or the theme.. here are some from the places I've been.. of course I didn't buy all the hats I liked, but now I regret not buying what I had my eyes on.. I guess I should to go back again :D


I love pastry and I could eat this every day sweet or salty. Just love it! This is what I've done recently, but to be honest I bought the dough from Tesco :D

Romanian government is applying the lethal injections to stray dogs

Recently the Romanian government has came up with a law that brakes any animal rights law. They decided to do euthanasia to all stray dogs. This is outrageous as they haven't followed/applied any plan or form of reducing the number of stray dogs like sterilizing them, applying medicine to unhealthy dogs, let alone to secure shelter and food or run a national advertised program like give a dog a home. They received money for this cause and no one knows where they went. YES, they went straight for the KILL.
This people in the government have some sort of political or financial gain from this and for them this is only a strategic step to make them advance in their hidden agenda.. I'm Romanian living abroad and I'm furious with this law and the lack of scrupulous of our government and president.. our entire system it's corrupted to the bone!!

We must do something about it before it's too late!

1 December - Romanian National Day

1 December it is the day when all Romanians everywhere around the globe can show their patriotism.
This is a national Romanian holiday which celebrates the Great Union Day(Romanian:Ziua Marii Uniri, also calledUnification Day) occurring on December 1. It commemorates the assembly of the delegates of ethnic Romanians held inAlba Iulia, which declared the Union of Transylvania with Romania.This holiday was set after the1989 Romanian Revolutionand it marks the unification ofTransylvania, but also of the provinces ofBasarabiaandBucovinawith theRomanian Kingdom, in 1918.Prior to 1918, the national holiday of Romania was set to be on May 10, which had a double meaning: it was the day on whichCarol Iset foot on the Romanian soil (in 1866), and it was the day on which the prince ratified the Declaration of Independence (from theOttoman Empire) in 1877.The traditional song for this event is the so called Round Dance of Unification (Hora Unirii).
