Weekly Photo Challenge: Culture

by evilnymphstuff

I wasn’t sure which photos to post for this week’s challenge, which is Culture, since there has been nothing in my life that has been photographically culturally interesting… (lol) but, browsing through this year’s photos, I found these:

新年快乐! Happy new year! A Chinese year has passed already, the year of the Dragon is over and a new one, the year of the Snake, is starting!

I’m doing a Sunday post, I know, but this is to let you know that I won’t be at home on Monday and Tuesday, since from today I am going to celebrate the new year in a hotel! As the tradition wishes it to. Well, the Chinese-Mauritians’ tradition, hehe.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Illumination

by evilnymphstuff

Illumination… An interesting theme to tackle since New Year celebrations have just passed… Thus I photographed little fireworks :D (the one that we place on the ground and which remains on the ground even when we light it up!)

It’s to read the maximum of books I can!

My 2013 Goals!

by evilnymphstuff

I am not the type of person who every year makes a list of resolutions. But there are things that I keep in mind, things that I wish for, things that I want to happen during the year.

These are my goals of the year.

The New Year

by evilnymphstuff

Here’s this week’s contribution to Picture it & Write:

new year fireworks

I stared at the starry night that offered this last day of the year. All my people were in joy, in celebration. It would be soon the end, yet the beginning. No one and nothing would dare miss this day, this hour. All the stars were present. All the colours in the sky as well: blue, purple, red, pink…

Midnight would soon strike.

An Evil Nymph’s 2012 Overview! (Happy New Year 2013!)

by evilnymphstuff

Hi everyone! On this New Year’s Eve, I’ll be doing everything that needs to be done for this last day of 2012, mainly, the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: My 2012 in Pictures, the WordPress annual report, some ramblings on the 2012-13 transition…

First of all, for this week’s photo challenge, it was suggested that we present 12 photos at least in a gallery to make an overview of 2012, but I’m going to break the rules and thus here’s my contribution:

Happy Chinese New Year 2012!

by evilnymphstuff

Tomorrow is at last the most important festival of the Chinese tradition: the New Year! Even more important than the usual 1st Jan new year… My family and I have a lot to do… and enjoy!

This year will be the year of the Dragon – from the Chinese horoscope.

We’ve been busy ‘spring cleaning’ – yes because Chinese new year also symbolises the coming of spring time :) – and buy new clothes! ^^ Then when the big day comes, we’ll first go to mass (here we’re almost all half-Catholic half-Chinese) and light firecrackers just like the ones I filmed on my New Year’s vid post. Hehe I can’t believe I’m still not deaf! And after a traditional lunch… We’re heading to the hotel!! Yeah! I’m going to stay for two nights thus I’ll return home on Wednesday (missing school I know lol but well every year’s it’s been like that!). I don’t know if I’m going to blog during my stay… Just to let you know. ^^

Happy Chinese New Year! Hope it brings good fortune :) let loose the dragon inside of you!

An Evil Nymph Goes Back to School

by evilnymphstuff

The title sounds so childish, don’t you think so? Anyway.

My 6th year at secondary school will start on Thursday! Excited? Thrilled? uh… well I guess I got used to it. So bye bye holidays and welcome uniforms and homework… My schedule will be tighter too. :P

But to spice up those long days at school and tuition, I crafted a pencil case (which I always do since I learnt how to make one… thanks to school lol) like this one:

Weekly Photo Challenge: Winter

by evilnymphstuff

In Mauritius we are currently not in winter but in summer! Yep I always celebrate Christmas in summer ^^  But winter can also be associated with our moments of sadness and depression. When we feel bad, winter has settled in our mind. It’s all gloomy and dull…
But then we only need to light a match to melt the snow, to think positively again :)

little bursting firecrackers for children

This was my little cousins playing with sorts of firecraking sticks (harmless and beautiful!) for New Year.

In this wonderful period of renaissance (New Year) we should light up our inner winters and let the sun shine through!

An Evil Nymph is Proud to Present… 2011 in review!

by evilnymphstuff

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,000 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 3 trips to carry that many people.

Click here to see the complete report.

Wow WordPress really impressed me with that!!! This report thing with the breath-taking colourful design is so awesome :D Thank you to all my visitors and commenters! ♥ Wish you all again a happy new year ;D

Sorry for the irregularity of my posting habit of today lol! Two posts in a row! Whew! Don’t worry, just go and enjoy yourself, I won’t bother your inbox anymore for this very first day of 2012 xD Let’s party in the outside world as well haha!

New Year’s Vid!

by evilnymphstuff

Hey this is just a short post to show you how my family and I celebrated the last midnight gong together… with the longest firecrakers!

Enjoy!

It’s the worse editing I’ve ever done LOL because this was filmed with my s2 and it was the first time that I was using it for this purpose and the thing is that the video was upside down when I imported it into the laptop so I had to meddle with my Sony Vegas a little bit…

Anyway hope you all had fun!
