The eclipse or not, the moon was gorgeous

A lamp post with lunar rays...

I'm not sure if we were supposed to see the lunar eclipse on this side of the world, but tonight the full moon was really wonderful.

A ray of hope

Sky guidance

Which way should I go? Don't ask me, ask the sky.

Skywatch Friday

Well I'm on a diet, I guess

I miss Macedonian food. My mom cooking, tasty cheese, fresh-baked pies, delicious bread and proper CHOCOLATE.

Today I had one of those bad days when I really miss home food. The meals that I had today were awful. Don't get me wrong I love Chinese food, but today I just picked the wrong dishes. The lunch was in our canteen, it looked good, so I picked that one. And that's it, just LOOKED good. Grhhh.

The dinner - ahhh. I went to the other canteen, the girl at the counter misheard me (I hate when this happens), so I got something else. It was too late to change it, cos the canteen was closing, so I threw it away. Again. I feel bad when throwing food. What could have I done? I tried it , but it was tasteless.

Went to the local shop, bought some small pies, and yogurt. Oh, the yogurt is sweet in China. I don't like it at all. I want real SOUR one.

Well, I can always say, I'm on a diet. I don't need too much food, right?!

A local wedding custom

Click to see a better view.

Double Happiness 喜 喜 is a Chinese symbol that is used for Chinese wedding decoration.
The Chinese symbol is composed of two Chinese characters for Happiness 喜 (xi). It is called Double Happiness.

The local custom in Tianjin is that a single 喜 decoration is put on the bride's home meaning her family is not 'double' happy since she left her parents.

So the picture I took, probably, is groom's home. :)

a morning surprise

I got my first Christmas tree.
When I woke up this morning I saw a wonderful gift from Mother nature.
Lovely white Christmas tree.
Thank you so much.

Isn't it amazing?

P.s. It's freezing outside.
