To celebrate our 11th week of e-learning, the Government announced that the lockdown was finally over in Hanoi. We are beyond thankful to the Government for his management of Covid19. Our expat family has always feel safer in Vietnam than back home, because we knew there would be no discussion of the Government decisions. Collective interest always primes over the individual. People are not … Continue reading Lockdown is over in Hanoi ! A note to my fellow Frenchies
The Photo Challenge of this week is “to share a photo of something that you consider a marvellous treat‘.

We are blessed to be able to spend another year in the Philippines, such a welcoming country. Living here has its up, for sure.. It’s hot and sunny most of the time, and very lively. But it has its down too: it’s (too) hot and (burning) sunny most of the time, traffic is insane and karaoke far too loud for our sensitive European ears 😛 You … Continue reading One word photo challenge: Snow
After 95 days of holidays, the Attilas are finally on their way back to school !!! This year will be a bit special, as Mr Attila senior’s job is taking him out of Cebu, full time.

I’ve been tossing with the idea … Continue reading Back to school tomorrow !

Today is Bastille Day and it makes me a little homesick… No firework in Cebu, no Cheese and wine party. I miss being surrounded by my overcomplaining fellow Frenchies, talking about life over bottles of wine, drinking real espresso, judging people by the way they dress, talk and by the books they read. I miss sarcastic people and flirting like it’s nobody’s business. I also … Continue reading Learn THE word that will turn you into a real Parisian
Take a woman in her early forties. She is the typical extravert, who deeply cherishes her freedom. She loves her job, travels constantly and has the privilege to meet with fascinating people from all over the world.

Husband … Continue reading Prime symptoms of Mid life crisis ? 3 best rejuvenating experiences in Cebu
