My fluffy white rice

I don’t know when my relationship with white rice started. I just remember it being always present as I was growing up. Me and rice always had a relationship. But it was never smooth sailing. No. Not at all. Many, many times me and rice would… just… never “agree” with one another… I remember this…

My review on the Black Panther movie

If you’re a big super-hero movies fan like me (although I don’t consider myself a “nerd” or an avid follower of everything comic books), or if at least you haven’t been living in a cave in the last 10 years, you’ll know that one of the most anticipated movies of 2018 has just come out…

What have Mondays done to us?

You know the drill. You might have worked during the week, you’re looking forward to 5 or 6 o’clock pm on a Friday, looking forward to the weekend and then… Monday. Every single Monday, when I’m at my desk at work, I get at least a handful of people complaining about it, saying that they’re…

The Marvel vs DC “debate”

The super-heroes and villains movies have come to stay. We’ve always had movies made about them, some of them going back several decades, and even tv shows/series, but it’s been pretty much since 2008 that we saw a boom in this type of movie entertainment. So, what happened in 2008? It was the year that…

Where EXACTLY do we live?

I think it was somewhere around 2016 or 2017 – I can’t be sure exactly to be honest – that in my many searches on You Tube about conspiracies and mysterious things, I stumbled upon some video about us not living on a globe. Huh… I thought ‘Well, this looks interesting. Let’s see what it’s…

An amazing birthday treat

Spending your weekend at a top hotel in London as a birthday present? I would never say no to that. And I didn’t. It was a great present, given to me by some of the best people in my life. Me and my partner stayed one night over at the Soho Hotel, in London. I…

Happy birthday to me!

My day has arrived! Another twelve months to be added to the long list of months that came before. Years ago, on this date, I came to this world. And it’s been an amazing ride so far. Plenty to laugh about, plenty to cry about, many people met, many stories told, many experiences lived and…

A warm stay in York

In my previous post I wrote about my stay during Christmas in York, England, with my partner. On this one, I want to talk about where we stayed, the Chelmsford Place Guest House. Four days and three nights were spent in this small bed & breakfast. We arrived by taxi, which took a mere 5…

My review of a Balios umbrella

I own two big umbrellas, which can easily and comfortably shelter two adults from most of the rain. And I had owned several big umbrellas and small umbrellas in the past, but now I was looking for a small one that I could could carry with me every day in my backpack, in case it…

Christmas in York, England

For many years I have been wanting to visit the city of York, in the north of England. I had seen photos and read several articles about the history of York and immediately knew that one day I’d visit this very old city. It was the pictures of old buildings and of the streets that…

Are we alone?

This is probably one of the most asked questions ever, if not THE one most asked. And I’m not talking about or going to talk about loneliness, people feeling lonely in life; this is something completely different that I’ll leave for another post. I’m talking about life or beings in other places. Personally, I have…

Let’s eat!

2017 has been witness to an explosion of food content like it has, in my opinion, never been seen before. I mean, there’s a lot of people talking a lot about food, sharing content, photos and videos of all sorts of foods and it’s amazing to see that. Many people have a large number of…
