Camping California in Le Barcares, France

Once we finally finalized our vacation dates, the next question was where to go. Personally, it doesn't take much to make me agree to go anywhere - I love travelling and discovering new things. But after talking to my dear husband, I could sense that for our first family trip since arriving in France, he wanted to stay local. France is a beautiful country and there is so much to explore and see. Like I always say, there's more to France than Paris!

The Paris Attacks

It's been a while since I posted here and never in the world I thought I would because of the horrible events that has been happening in France lately.

Exactly 3 weeks ago, I was watching the soccer match - France vs. Germany. It was the end of a long day. SO was in bed already and I was waiting for MR to come home from work. Everything was going great, France was winning (for once!), when suddenly the announcer mentioned that something serious was happening in France. I raised my eyebrow, wondering what the hell was that about.

I spent the night of Friday glued to the television set. Never mind I had to work early the next morning. A group of terrorist bastards were firing and killing innocents in the center of Paris - how could I sleep?!?

It's been 3 weeks and the words and photos on the media are still haunting me. Around me, everyone feels the same way. I've seen people crying, wanting to talk about what happened, expressing how afraid they were, but also deciding that the best thing to do is go forward as a united country.

I personally went through several stages of emotions to try to understand what was happening.

At first, I was stunned. No, this can't be happening, I told myself. This is a sick joke. This is a movie. This is anything, but real life.

And then I was mad. Why? The victims were enjoying a night out, with friends and family, at a soccer game, at a restaurant, or attending a concert when they were executed. No one is immortal and we will all have to pass away one day - but did they have to die this way?

And that's when sadness hit me. Nowadays you are killed because you simply enjoy and love life.

What has our world become? What has happened to humanity?

Le Barcares - The Food Pictures

Le Barcares was pure paradise. It's perhaps not the most beautiful place we've ever been to - we do come from the Philippines after all. But nevertheless, being in Le Barcares was a real pleasure. It was the sun, the sea, and of course, the food. Which is perfect for a foodie like me.

Summer Vacation 2015 - Le Barcares

Now that it's been a month since we got back from our summer vacation and that the awful rainy weather is back, I can't help but think about the wonderful days we spent in the south of France last month. Being reunited to the sea after 3 long years was just amazing. Although our trip didn't go as well as we had hoped, we had a really wonderful time. I'm happy to be back at home and working, but I can't help but think about our next holidays.

Pont du Gard in Vers-Pont-du-Gard, France

Confucius once said , "Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it". I doubt he was talking about the Pont du Gard in France though.

Le Musée du Bonbon Haribo / Haribo Museum in Uzès, France

After driving an hour and a half, we were finally at our second stop - Le Musée du Bonbon Haribo / Haribo Museum in Uzès, France. As you can probably imagine, this stop was for our daughter, SO. Since her birthday was on the last day of our trip, MR and I decided to spoil her with surprises during the trip, including this one.

Buffet Breakfast in Premiere Classe Valence Nord

We're not generally big on breakfast - a cup of coffee or hot chocolate will usually suffice. But with the travelling we were going to do today, we agreed that it was best we had more than hot liquid in our tummy.

Overnight Stay in Premiere Classe Valence Nord in Saint-Marcel-les-Valence, France

When I was planning our holidays, the first thing I did was rent an accommodation by the beach. I looked around by the Mediterranean Sea area and finally booked a mobil-home in Le Barcares. The drive going there is about 9 hours and I knew I wouldn't be able to do it in one trip. So originally staying in Saint-Marcel-les-Valence was supposed to be a mid-way resting stop to stay the night, but when I saw that it was close to the city of Valence, I thought we could do a little visiting (click here for the post).

Valence, France

After almost 6 hours of driving, we finally arrived at our first stop - Valence. Taking the highway was easy, up until we got to Lyon where suddenly there were more cars on the road. This is after all the highway to vacation-land. Tip: if you can, try avoiding taking the highway on weekends when you're going on vacation. My niece left on a Saturday and was stuck in traffic for 3 hours. We left on a Tuesday and we had no problem concerning traffic, just the occasional reckless truck driver!

Preview: What We Did on Our Holiday

Now that we're back home I'm taking the time to settle down. MR, on the other hand, went straight to work the next day. I'm not starting work until next week, so I've been washing our clothes, cleaning the house, and setting a new rhythm. In between chores, I like to look at the photos of our trip, 1500+ of them. I can't help but smile at all the things we did. Some people think we're crazy to have done so much in such little time, but we disagree. While most of our friends and family look forward to the summer break to go somewhere, drop everything, and just relax for 1 or 2 weeks - we explored. Something new almost every day - a region, a specialty, a landmark, an activity and we loved it!

Summer Vacation 2015

We are back!!! After 13 days, travelling more than 2000 kilometers, we are finally back at home safe and sound. Which is all I hoped for because this trip was not as smooth sailing as I'd hoped it would be - I can't wait to tell you all about that! If last year, we opted for a short trip to Paris, this year we went all out with a 13-day family trip to the south of France. Our first priority was the beach - the sound of the waves, sand in our feet, the salty water, and the sun shining. It's been too long for this island family!!! But we got more than what we had bargained for. We experienced all the feelings that's possible to feel. Happiness, Fear, Anger, Hunger, Amazement, Wonder, Awe, Contentment, Surprise, Exhaustion, Sleepiness. All of this we felt and we felt it together. Because that's the thing - something happened to our family on this trip. Something definitely good. Gone were our (MR and I) once-a-day senseless fight. We took the time to talk, listen to each other, and just enjoy time. Gone was that feeling of hurriedness.

Philips Food Processor HR 7761/00

I've always said that the best kitchen tool one can have are their hands. It's particularly true when I have to knead dough, marinate meat or fish, or roll meatballs. But when summer comes around and it's salad season, my hands cannot unfortunately slice cucumber, celery, or carrots as thin as I would like. Point is I needed a food processor. Actually, I wanted a Kitchenaid, which is still a dream I hope to have someday, but I had to be reasonable as our current kitchen doesn't have much space. So instead, I opted for the Philips Food Processor HR 7761/00 (click here for the link), which doesn't take much space in my kitchen, but has been essential to prepare our meals lately.

Shopaholic's Corner: H&M France -Tennis Shoes

At the end of Spring / beginning Summer, I stopped by the store, H&M in Semecourt, France. The sole purpose was to take a look at the possible items that would be on sale for the summer sales. But you know me, I have a hard time going out of a store empty-handed.

Les Terrasses du Lac in Gerardmer, France

After spending a calm and relaxing afternoon with my love, we decided to choose a place to have dinner. We remembered being slightly disappointed with the restaurant we ate at last year (click here for the post), so that was off the list for today. Unfortunately, with no reservations in a tourist city like Gerardmer (and with the French Canoe-Kayak Championship going on), our chances seemed pretty slim, but we went out to venture anyways.

An Afternoon in Gerardmer, France

After we dropped our daughter, SO, at summer camp, MR and I decided to drop by Gerardmer. We did it last year (click here for the post) and had lovely memories. So naturally we were excited to come back this year. There's only 30 kilometers between the 2 cities, but the road is a little tough with the zigzags and curves. But once you get there, it's all worth it.

Fresse-sur-Moselle in the Vosges, France

There's something about the Vosges that I absolutely love. On the way there, I can tell exactly where the border of the department Meurthe-et-Moselle ends and the Vosges begins. Everything becomes greener, fresher, and cooler. I'm a sucker for the beach, but the typical landscape of the Vosges, with its beautiful mountains and hills, somehow make my heart beat a little faster with excitement and happiness. As I was driving last Saturday, MR mentioned that I had a huge smile all over my face. I looked at the mirror and he was right - I really did.

Potato and Smoked Salmon Salad

I can't help but feel amused by how excited my French friends become when the sun first starts appearing in Spring. You'd think the excitement was about finally getting some natural light after a long winter, but this excitement is usually accompanied by, "Yey, we can finally have a barbecue at home." LOL. At times, the sun shines, but unfortunately the temperature in the air isn't warm enough, but my friends tell me, "no worries we will grill outside, but eat inside." Again, LOL. Anyways, don't get me wrong, I love barbecue or les grillades. But when it's the thing you keep eating on weekends (at family's, friend's and town events) from March to September, you quickly get sick of it. I don't know about you, but I do.

Vapiano in Luxembourg Ville, Luxembourg

So I mentioned that we spent the afternoon in Luxembourg the other day (click here for the post). Naturally, we thought we would stay in the city for dinner. Our original plans were to eat at the Filipino Restaurant Bar, but unfortunately we were told that they didn't serve dinner. We didn't know what to do and we asked ourselves where we could go. By then, we were walking towards the car park which was close to the train station. We walked by the restaurant Vapiano, looked at each other, and mentally asked - why not?!

Spring 2015

With the current on-going heatwave, it would be hard to deny that we are in summer. It's been a couple of days now and it seems we have finally adjusted. Temperatures in the morning usually start at 25 degrees Celsius and increase up to 38 degrees Celsius in the afternoon. This is really unusual especially in the east region of France, but thankfully it seems to be getting better today. It's 5:30PM as I'm typing this and it's 31 degrees Celsius. I hope it continues to descend this week. I strongly feel that temperatures this high shouldn't exist where there isn't a beach nearby! LOL. Speaking of the sea, I can't wait to go on vacation to the south of France at the end of the month. Before leaving, I will try to update this blog as much as I can, starting with this post dedicated to the Spring we had.

Mangoo Supermarket in Luxembourg

It's true when they say that one does not know what one has until the day they don't have it anymore. I faced the harsh truth when I got to France. At first, I thought I would do fine. I told myself -I'm half-French and I love French food, so I should do just fine. Wrong! Point is when you live your whole life eating certain flavors, one point or another, even after a break, you will start looking for those flavors again. It's that fresh mango for breakfast, or roasted pork (Lechon) for lunch, that sweetness in the Spaghetti sauce , or even that final touch of calamansi on Pancit Canton. All of this I miss so much and more.

How's the Family?

There are some moments in my life where I just stop whatever I'm doing and realize how lucky I am . As I look out the window of my office at the passing cars, I see the blue sky, the shining sun, and the colourful flowers in full bloom. I take a deep breath and reflect. My life is far from perfect. MR and I have had our fair share of obstacles. But like they say, whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger. We also have our share of good news and I'm grateful for all the blessings we've been receiving. The next 2 months are looking real good. MR and I will be working a bit, but SO finishes school on the 3rd of July. She will be spending her weekdays at the Centre Aéré near our house and then she will be off to Colonie de Vacances / Summer Camp for the second year in a row (click here for the post). I'm hoping I will handle a week without SO better than I did last year. Fortunately, when she comes home, we will head out to the south of France for a 2-week vacation. I cannot wait to get away!

Ristorante Del Arte in Metz, France

Last month, I had a sudden craving for Spaghetti Bolognese. I knew it would be a while before I could make some at home, but I also knew I needed to eat some ASAP. I looked up restaurants online, for when I would eat out, which coincidentally turned out to be the next day. Ristorante Del Arte seemed like a clear choice. Not too far from my workplace, Italian, affordable, and I'd never been before.

A Day in Saarbrucken, Germany

Coincidentally MR and I happened not to be working one Monday. We first thought we would enjoy it relaxing together at home, but we changed our mind when we saw how beautiful the day was going to be. Hot with a cool breeze or the perfect Spring day. In the past years, we've been hearing from friends and colleagues about the wonders of Saarbrucken in Germany. We decided today would be the perfect opportunity for MR and I to check out what everyone has been talking about.

Father's Day 2015

Yesterday we celebrated Father's Day. I didn't think I would write a post about it, but when MR and I were talking we thought it was cool to be able to look back family events in my blog. I can't help but wonder if 20 years from now, SO, who will be almost my age now (eeeekkk!), will be reading through this blog to remember her childhood memories. I hope she does.

Kids OOTD #1

After my daughter, SO, asked me if there was any way she could be part of my blog, I decided to come up with the idea of the Kids OOTD (outfit of the day). SO is 6 years old now and is showing interest in fashion. She knows what she wants and doesn't want and sometimes it's hard to understand. Hehehe. For today's outfit, we were inspired by SO's end of the school year program. Her teacher specifically asked that we prepare a yellow top and black pants for the presentation, so that's what SO and I set out to buy at one of our favorite store, H&M.

Garlic Jumbo Shrimps

I was stuck in traffic for an hour going to work this morning. Grrrr. It's not so much the traffic and waiting that bugs me, it's more the fact that I was 30 minutes late for work. I found my trainees waiting for me when I finally got to work and I don't like the feeling of being waited for. Thankfully the rest of the day has been going much smoother. Tomorrow is SO's end-of-the-school-year program and MR and I have the afternoon off to watch our little girl. I missed it last year, so there was absolutely no way I was going to miss it again this year. Plus, SO was selected to introduce her class's presentation solo. I can't help but be proud of her. I'm most probably biased, but not only is she beautiful, she is also intelligent, polite, and friendly. After the program, we organized a barbecue, games, and carousel rides for the kids and their families.  I've been slightly stressing about that, but what stresses me most is Father's Day this weekend. I already know what MR wants as a gift, but I thought I would make a special meal for him. A Father's Day special. But for the life of me, I have yet to decide what I'm going to do. I could prepare a Cote de Boeuf or Bone-In Rib-Eye Steak or Jumbo Shrimps. Problem is ... I just served some last weekend!

And we're back to square one, I guess.

Buffalo Grill in Semecourt, France

Buffalo Grill in Semecourt, France is a restaurant not so far from Ayako Sushi (click here for the post). Last March, I experienced dining for the first time in Buffalo Grill Semecourt and it will most probably be the last one. It was such a bad experience that I had totally forgotten about it until I was browsing through my pictures today. My first time ever trying a Buffalo Grill was 2 years ago (click here fore the post) in the ZAC d'Augny and looking back it wasn't so bad. This time , in Semécourt, was plain horrible.

Lunch at Ayako Sushi in Semecourt, France

As much as I don't want to think about it for now, I know that summer is coming. Don't get me wrong, I love the summer, especially the vacation part, but it also means that I am ambushed with an enormous amount of things to do (at work and in my personal life). At work, it's always complicated to wrap things up before the break. Clients are in a hurry and colleagues are away on trainings or early vacation. In my personal life, SO is almost done with her school year (her last day is on the 3rd of July) and it's time for the usual end-of-the-year programs. I'll be working in July, so I have to organize her summer activities (child care center and summer camp). And best of all, our family vacation. Oh yeahhhhh!!!! I'm hoping to finalize the details this week. Anyways, I can also tell it's almost summer by the crazy temperatures we've been having. I got in my car the other day and it said it was 40 degrees Celsius! It was most probably because the car was under the sun but it was easily 29 degrees Celsius in the air.

L'Ours Noir in Nancy, France

About 2 months ago, MR, SO, and I decided to check out La Foire Attractive in Nancy, France. It was the end of the week and we thought it would be a great way to de-stress from work and school. We did what we usually do when we go to Nancy - we left the car at the Mouzimpré parking and took the tram. To go to the venue of the fair, we rode the tram to the Point Central tram stop and walked 10 minutes to La Place Carnot.

Aux Dragons d'Or in Forbach, France

The second of June is always a special date for me as it is my mother's birthday. She was always big on birthdays. Always having huge birthday parties and inviting the whole neighbourhood. To some a birthday is just like any other day, but not to me. I guess my mother passed onto me her enthusiasm. It's been 13 years since she passed away and although we don't celebrate it anymore, it is always in the back of my mind.

Tete de Veau at La Diligence in Metz, France

Tete de Veau or Calf's Head always divides people. It's simple - you either love or hate it. For MR and I, once we got past the thought that it was an actual calf's head, we decided we loved it. Granted that the first time we had Tete de Veau was at my brother-in-law's mother's house. She is a terrific cook and luckily for me shared her traditional recipe (click here for the post). Like for a lot of French offal dishes, there is a special preparation and you basically have to trust the cook. Tete de Veau is usually eaten during winter and spring. I haven't had the time to make some this season, which is why I decided to stop by the restaurant, La Diligence in Metz, France today. La Diligence is a French traditional restaurant that I love in Metz (click here for the post) and it's my not-so-secret / secret spot. I've been passing by it for the past couple of weeks and every time I did I saw their outdoor sign which said they were cooking Tete de Veau that day. I told myself I should try it. I figured if it's frequently being prepared it must be one of their specialties.

Mother's Day 2015

Before anything, I'd like to greet a Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful mothers out there and I hope you had a very good day.

Coffeeserie in Metz, France

Just when I thought I was full from dinner, we found ourselves by the shop, Coffeeserie, on our way back to the parking. I swear I heard my stomach complain just a tiny bit, but there was no way I could just walk by and not stop to get anything. I've been hearing a lot about Coffeeserie on social networks and the photos of their desserts have always been mouthwatering. Walking in the streets of France is almost paradise for foodies with the delicious French delicacies on display, but Coffeeserie specializes in non-French desserts a.k.a Cupcakes. I don't know about the rest of France, but that ain't so common to find in the streets of Metz. I couldn't help but think of the cupcake craze a couple years ago in the Philippines and the United States and wondered if it was finally coming to France.

City Wok in Metz, France

Tomorrow is Mother's Day in France, which is celebrated a couple of weeks after the Philippines and the United States. So I've pretty much been receiving greetings from friends and families for the past week and I thought I would return the favour tomorrow.

Battling The Cold Winter With Delicious Soups

Another long weekend. This month of May has been real good, but like they say "all good things must come to an end". June will be looonnnggggg! Back to regular programming, back to 6 days work weeks. I console myself thinking that after June, it is July and August a.k.a. the summer vacation months. Yayyy!!! As I sit here in my office typing away, I can't help but look out the window that's on my right. I see green trees,colourful flowers, the yellow sun shining, and occasionally one or two neighbors walking around town. I see Spring. When I think back to the winter, I am glad that it's over. Although, I am a bit sad about the food. Because some of the best food I have is usually during the winter - especially Soups!

Website: My Little America

I've been in France for 3 years now. How time flies ... In the past years, a lot has changed. At first, it was difficult to adjust, especially the first year and with the passing of my father, but these days I think we are doing well. MR has a good stable job and I am loving what I do. Although, speaking English all day and having American colleagues make me miss a lot. Back in the Philippines, the American influence was pretty quite evident, as seen by the gazillion number of McDonald's and products available. Here, it's another story. The nearest McDonald's is an hour away! And forget about American products. Which is why I thought I would go online to find answers to my problems and I did with My Little America.

Butter Garlic Razor Clams / Couteaux

Last December, I stumbled upon some Razor Clams or Couteaux, like they say in France, in the supermarket. I was surprised to see these for sale as we don't exactly live near any body of water. But the fishmonger assured me that these babies were fresh and it didn't take more to convince me. December is a pretty nice month for seafood-lovers like us because with the festivities there is suddenly more seafood available (like manila clams, littlenecks clams, cockles, oysters, sea urchins .... ) on the market.

Dinner at Villa Roma in Morhange, France

I wasn't lying when I said we would be back at Villa Roma in Morhange, France. Although I didn't think it would be this soon. But yeah, exactly one week after MR tried Villa Roma (click here for the post) for the first time we were back again at the same place and at the same table. I'd like to say it was a lazy Saturday night, but who am I kidding?! There's no excuse - we just love Villa Roma!!!

Villa Roma in Morhange, France

If yesterday I wrote about a place I like to go to when I am at work (click here for the post), today I thought I would post about a place close to home. This isn't the first time I wrote about Villa Roma in Morhange, France (click here and here) and truthfully it probably won't be the last time either. I can't stop gushing about this place!

Torti'as in Semecourt, France

It's Thursday morning and it's the start of yet another long weekend. Yay! I could definitely get used to this. Although I probably shouldn't because next week is going to be a very busy one again. So today is a public holiday because it is Ascension, celebrated forty days after Easter. We are eating lunch at my sister's house and I thought I would squeeze in some time to update the blog.

Papilles - Gateau Magique au Pamplemousse

This month of May is looking up to be really good. After months of non-stop working and having 1-day weekends, it looks like I'm going to have some free time for myself. Because good news - we have a couple of public holidays this month which of course shortens the work week. After the long weekend of last week, I am currently enjoying another one. Aw gosh, I didn't realize how much I missed sleeping in!

Les Moulins Bleus in Saint-Julien-les-Metz, France

This week's a good one. And we just had to celebrate. My husband, MR, after a year and a half of working in France has finally signed a CDI work contract. A CDI is a contrat a durée indeterminée or essentially an open-ended contract, or a permanent employee contract. It is quite a big deal in France because it facilitates a lot of things, like the purchase of a new car, a house, or filing a visa for travels. We are beyond ecstatic and I know MR deserves it. He is a reliable, motivated, and hard-working employee!

Ginataang Tahong / Mussels in Coconut Milk

I enjoy a lot cooking for my family. In the past, I had a lot more time to do that and I miss those moments terribly. These days, we've each been eating out a lot. SO goes to the school cafeteria and the nounou, MR eats a meal a day at work, and if I'm out working I eat in restaurants, take-out, or fast-food (if I have no time). We eat well, but sometimes you just want some good homecooking. Missing those times, I thought I would take out my pots and pans tonight. On the way home from work, I decided to pick up the ingredients needed. I take pleasure in cooking, but a lot of times, I cook to make others happy. For SO, it's anything with pasta and cheese and for MR, it's anything with coconut milk. That's one of his biggest food weakness and Ginatang Tahong is one of his favorites!

La Winstub in Metz, France

Last November, a good friend of mine from the Philippines came to visit me. JO and I first met when I transferred to a new school during Junior High School. It was the first time that we met, but it turned out that our families were actually linked in some coincidental way. A good family friend of ours was her grand uncle. We laughed at how "small" the world is and hit it off from there. Through the years, there have been many changes, many challenges, and distance, but somehow we tried to keep contact. It isn't always easy though, so when she contacted me to tell me that she would be in Europe, I was ecstatic!

Making Sense

Late afternoons in Lorraine, France 

A very good friend of mine, VI, came over last night. SO and I planned a girl's night (MR was working) at home in front of the television watching The Voice France. On Friday evening, I went out with my niece and watched the French movie, Un Homme Idéal, so I just wanted to relax at home and spend time with my family. Sensing that VI needed to see me, I invited her over if she wanted to.

Indochine in Metz, France

Lately our work schedule has been crazy. I have my regular day schedule plus I've accepted teaching a night class a week and a Saturday morning class. It's a bit much, I know, but I figured I'd do it now before I turn 30. I promised MR I will slow down eventually. MR is quite the busy bee as well. He works an average of 5-6 days a week and only has 1 weekend off a month. It's no surprise when you work in the health service. Which is why I suggested that MR and SO join me in Metz after my Saturday morning class. The weather has improved and one can already feel Spring coming. After weeks of winter, a day of shopping and eating was exactly what we needed.

Strasbourg, France

Last August, I was asked to go to Strasbourg for work for a day. I love the city of Strasbourg in France and although I've been there for a couple of times now there's still so much for me to explore. And of course, it's always a pleasure to revisit my favorites.

Dinner at Ippoudo Ramen in Nancy, France

I love my husband, MR, but I swear some days he exasperates me. Just today, for example, he conveniently went to work at 6AM with all of our keys! Grrr ... Both house keys. Both car keys. And my car's spare key as well. Again .... Grrrr!!! It would have been fine I guess, or a lesser deal, if I wasn't supposed to be working today. But I was. Imagine my shame and discomfort calling my boss and telling her the reason why I couldn't come in. *insert long sigh * Again, I love my husband, but today, he's my no. 1 enemy.

Marché du Monde in Center Parcs - Les Trois Forets, France

When we showered and dried off from our late afternoon swimming session, we were all feeling really hungry. Anyone who knows us knows it isn't a good thing. MR gets impatient, I'm cranky, and SO strangely tries to sleep it off.

Late Afternoon in Center Parcs - Les Trois Forets in Hattigny, France

When working non-stop from Monday to Saturday (which includes long trips and stressful days), the last thing I want to do is take my car and use whatever energy I have left in me. But I figured, if I don't make the extra effort, my family and I would never do anything fun together. Which is why MR, SO, and I found ourselves in the car on our way to Center Parcs - Les Trois Forets in Hattigny, France last Saturday afternoon.
