Phoneography Challenge: My Neighborhood

All right, no ‘weekly photo challenge’ anymore; this time, this week, the Daily Post decided to host a slightly different challenge: the Phoneography Challenge! And this week’s theme is My Neighborhood

All the photos are taken from my roof…

Can you see the little red house on an island? It’s famous around the whole country for being The Red House 🙂 I’m proud to be living just in front of it!

Happy Chinese New Year! æ­ç¦§å‘è´¢!

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.

Losing Sight Of Your Priorities? Find Them Back!

I had a long weekend. Friday was a public holiday, here in Mauritius. Yet, as I’m writing this, on Monday morning, I realise that even though I should have had more time to do what I had to do, I in fact did not. I even didn’t have the time to check out WordPress and check my mail as I used to!

What happened exactly?

Well, on Friday, I got my hair cut (again haha, I tend to keep it as short as a boy’s), then since it was a holiday I went to my grandma’s and during my spare time, I blogged (my last post) and did Art homework. Fine.

It was on Saturday that I lost it.

My mind, I guess.

Is It The End Of The World Yet?

In a few hours, as predicted by the Mayans – or more precisely, the media – we will all be die. It is the end of our world.

Or not.

2012 end of the world

Do you believe in any of this? I don’t. In about 2 hours, here it will be the 22/12/12 and there still hasn’t been any tsunami warning or violent cyclones or incoming flood or deadly earthquakes… Or not even snow. (NB: it never snows in tropical regions, so if there will ever be snowing here in Mauritius, I believe it might be a reason to get worried.)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Changing Seasons

Changing seasons? Here in Mauritius, being a tropical island, we have put our winter coats away and gave in to the warmth of the summer rays! It’s getting hotter and hotter every day!

May the sun reach you as well, those who live in the upper regions and are getting colder as the snow sets on the ground.

And I never write in the literal meaning only…

Be Strong. Always.

And enjoy the holiday season! 😀

Weekly Photo Challenge: Thankful

Gratitude is something that everyone should practice on a daily basis. It makes us realise that there are so many things in life that we have, that we love. And that’s a great way to start the day, with a good mood, by thinking of all the things we have instead of complaining about all the things we don’t have. What do you think?

This Is Halloween! [or The Happy Nightmare Before Christmas]

Although here in Mauritius we don’t officially celebrate Halloween, or Samhain’s Eve, whatever you call it, many of us, especially teenagers, always find a way to make this 31 October a special day, even despite having exams on the next day.

Yes, many of us were just stuck at home with revision work… but fortunately? I had tuition in the afternoon. This is when my friends and I decided to wear orange and black and cry out ‘TRICK OR TREAT’ when the teacher would come into class.

Doesn’t mean that we got sweets in the end.

But it was just so fun.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer

In Mauritius, we can never really claim to have known winter, because winter here is like summer in European countries! All right maybe we have 3 months of really cold winter? But that’s all. Here the sun always finds a way to shine through…

Shadows of my two friends and I! 🙂 To show how the sun is so bright that I feel like I’m being grilled and that my face is melting as if it had a thick layer of foundation every time…

Anyway, hope you all had a nice day! I spent awesome time during our (school) Annual Sports Day today and I’m just exhausted! xD

It was also very sunny today. ^^ As if it was summer. (yes it’s officially winter here)

Mothers Know Absolutely Everything

It is funny how Mother’s Day varies all over the world. I’ve seen that in many of the blogs I read Mother’s Day was some weeks ago, if I remember well, whereas here in Mauritius, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the last Sunday of May, which is today!

This post is therefore dedicated to every mother out there…

I wish you all a Happy Mother’s Day! 😀

yes hugs and cakes… what else to ask for? 😉

Weekly Photo Challenge: Blue

Blue? When I think of blue I automatically think of the sky, because here in Mauritius the sky is really always blue. It’s amazing. There is pollution but it’s not enough to break Mother Nature’s spell on our dear little island…

And I like how the green leaves just contrast this vivid gradient blue. This is the Mauritian sky, guys. Viewed from my school’s premises today 17/05, which is by the way the international day against homophobia! 🙂

Enjoy the blue. This is all I have to say for this challenge. Sometimes we have to stop the babbling and just… watch. After all, less is more. 😉

Weekly Photo Challenge: Down

What if you were God and you could watch us all from your divine tower up there? What would you see?

You might see the beauty… or the disasters. It could be sunny… or cloudy.

For once, I could catch a peaceful view:

looking down from Caudan Waterfront

A light breeze was refreshing a very hot day while we waited for the cool evening to come…

This photograph was taken from Le Caudan Waterfront in Port Louis, Mauritius.

I was walking up the stairs at that time and for once, I decided to look down.

God looks down all the time. He watches over us. Just like we should watch over the weaker, the poorer.

Water is the Remedy of All…

As any other children in a family, I go to seek advice from my parents (especially my father) when I’m not feeling good.

***

“Dad, my stomach hurts.”

“Drink some water and it’ll go away.”

***

“Dad, I have a headache.”

“Go and drink a glass of water.”

***

“Dad, I’m feeling nauseous.”

“Drink some water.”

***

“Dad, I’m sick!”

“Drink water.”
