notre crapouille a 3 ans

My bébé Sébastien turned 3 years old last January 17. Since we did not celebrate his 1st and 2nd year birthdays (it has always been a simple dinner with my in laws)...I decided to organize a children's party for him, though a bit tardive because venue wasn't available.... I still wanted to push through with it. It was one rainy Saturday afternoon, 28th of January, we arrived in the church "L'eglise Espagnol" with the permission of our beloved Father Percival Redona (a Claretian Priest based in Marseille). By the way, thank you very much Father.

Personally, I don't cook except at home (because I am oblige) but I wanted to make the best out of it for my bébé's special day. I have cooked spring rolls, sotanghon and hotdog rolled in "paté feuillette" or Puff Pastry. Then, I ordered from the bakery a box of Pizza (already divided in square around 30 pieces) and a cake. Beforehand, when we did our groceries, I already bought different sorts of candies. Kids loved it by the way. I also have two friends who made a Chiffon Cake (thank you Sis. VIcky) and cassava cake (many thanks to you Sis. Gelaih).



At first, arriving at 2 in the afternoon, the rain begun again. I thought the party would be a failure and that there will be no children coming because of the bad weather. I was wrong.....though weather was disagreable and too much present there were still children who came over to celebrate it with bébé Sébastien !


It was a wonderful day for everyone and here is my bébé blowing his candle. A candle of joy and thanksgiving. Time really flies so fast.....another year is added.....he's growing....he understands more....he starts to express better.....Happy birthday mon bébé Sébastien and cheers to good health ! Je t'aime très fort ma petite crapouille !

Thank you for those who have been there. And for some who did not make it, hope to see you next year. Thank you very much for all the presents ! A bientôt......

my prince charming.....

It has been a normal circulation on the blog realm of tagging a friend....now it is my turn and was tagged by Makis on finding a "perfect lover".

Likewise, I don't really believe they exist because there is no perfect person only depends on the eye of the beholder. In fact, I have a list of qualifications, but I did not pursue with it....I never imagine myself getting married to a complete stranger but I did.....I call it DESTINY !

My prince charming.....I call him Honey even I'm not in the mood never in his first name ....Simple is the best adjective to describe him. A man of great honor and respect for my culture and origin. He never misjudges and under estimates person , he says, we all have different capacities, talents and intelligence. In 5 years of marriage until now he never lies and he never will. Very gentle with our children and he doesn't believe in spanking as the best way to discipline them but talking and explaining things to make them more understand life's moral. A very sensitive man but he always has a barrel of laugh during dull moments. Very generous in his own special way. He has an esprit wide open....a better way of learning. Environmentalist in his words and deeds. Loves doing sports to make him fit and relax after a busy working days. He is very organize be it in work or at home. He respects everyone's indifferences and tried to learn from them. In short, he is imperfect but he tries to give out the best in him...

This is it Makis! We all have many things to say good or bad whatever it is but they will always stay our prince charming or "perfect lover" as we described them. My 2nd assignment DONE and thanks Makis for sharing this, it is quite touching because I don't usually pay attention on his good qualities....it makes me realize though...Now I will pass this through Maman
Analyse, no hurry, I know you're too much occupied....just do it if you find the moment of tranquility...Please see for the details .

Thoughts to ponder:

We waste time looking for a perfect lover, instead of creating a perfect love.
Love isn't finding a perfect person. It's seeing an imperfect person perfectly.

I am a big BBB...

Oh la la la, after the holidays I am too much occupied by everything. I was also feeling bad because I failed to pass my driving licence, need to take la conduite accompagnie pendant 3 mois ( accompanied by a professional driver for 3 months - then I can repass the actual driving exam...hope to make it next retake ) this makes me stop blogging for awhile. I have low morals, reality is killing me off just for a short time but now I am back with my old habits!

I still don't have new post, I have tons of laundries, a quantum of unironed clothes, need to prepare something for Sébastien's 3rd birthday this Saturday because inlaws are coming over for the celebration. Just busy organizing our sojourn in the Philippines this coming February...added attraction to this BAPTISMAL of Mayumi...where??? in the Philippines....yipppeee !!! Though, ideas are coming out and wanted to share my escapades....but timing is really tough. Don't know when to start but will try to find the time. Anyway, the least thing I could do for the moment are : checking your blogs, posting a comment & tagging you all (para updated).

Meaning I am a BUSY BLOGGER BUDDY !!! That's me...So guys please bear with me.
