#ThreeThingsThursday – What made me smile this week…

Hello everyone! Just got back from our morning swim and the weather is quite nice, bright and warmer than last week! We went to the shops and these fruit and vegetables greeted us.

After 15 years of being together, we have to part ways….goodbye Mini!


Yesterday, we ate in our local Chinese restaurant and we had chicken pancit and sweet and sour pork.

Have a lovely week everyone!

Hello everyone! After six years of hard work from seed, it finally flowered!


I was welcomed by these flowers from Him Indoors when I arrived from Manila ❤


And of course, our orchids are blooming, too 🙂

Puerto Princesa, Palawan

Hello everyone! Part of our holiday in the Philippines was to go to one of the islands – the 15 of us! We went to Puerto Princesa, Palawan and stayed for 5 days. We stayed in a cool hotel, with a pool-access room!

The street scenes of Puerto Princesa

We went island hopping on Honda Bay

Visited the famous Underground River

And the food – delicious!

Birthday and Christkindlmarkt

Hello everyone from a stormy Munich. We’ve just got back from our morning swim, even though it was very windy outside. Just swam indoors most of the time. The jacuzzi is still great!

Anyway, last weekend, I celebrated my birthday. I’ve got a lovely gold bracelet from Him Indoors, pyjamas from parents-in-law, cardigan from cousin B, cards and FB greetings from families and friends. Thanks everyone!


We went to the Christkindlmarkt, first in Münchner Freiheit, the “arty” one, lots of hand-mades and sculptures in the market.

Then to Marienplatz, with the big Christmas tree in front of the town hall. We had sausages and mulled wine and looked around the stalls.

And in the evening, we went to our favourite Greek restaurant with friends N and R. Then went back to our place for a bottle of champagne and some mince pies. It was a wonderful birthday! Very grateful!
