Easter baking

image

Welcome to my baking world!
I started my passion for baking 3 years ago and since then every festive days I would do something special and
themy (if that’s a word).

This easter I didn’t want to do the classic chick, egg or bunny thingy so I thought about gardening because of the “easter Egg hunt” and this is what I came up with :

My family really liked the idea and the cupcakes, of course.
Apart from the cupcakes I spent my easter with my family watching a finished tv series that I never ended, which is “Chuck” โ™ก I LOVE it โ™ก
And in the meantime I was working on a figure made of clay, but that is a story that I’ll write about further on.
Around evening time we went to the movies and saw The Divergent series: Allegiant and if you have read the book like me, you would know the frustration about all these differences.

Anyways I hope you had a lovely easter, spent it with the people you love the most, as every festive day should be, in my opinion ๐Ÿ™‚
Good night beautiful people,
Michelle ๐Ÿ˜˜

World…

let’s talk about this picture I found on Facebook:

800_1722282141382651_6802148283519282799_n

THIS picture, as true as it can be, disturbs me.

I DID actually “flagged” my profile picture for the tragic event in November in Paris, and I did it too for the LGBT rights;

Today I’ve done it once more for the attacks that happened in Bruxelles, today I had one more reason to do so: I’m half Belgian.

That being so I felt more involved, I haven’t been living in Belgium since I was 4 years old and from then I’ve been living in Italy until a year and a half ago when I moved in the UK;

BUT Belgium is still BELGIUM, it’s still part of me even though I probably can’t be called a PROPER Belgian, half of my family lives there and YES I DO CARE!

As I cared about the tragic event back in November in Paris, and to be completely honest with you I DID cry quite a lot those days thinking:

What happened to this world, was it EVER cured from cruelty?
What happened to HUMANITY, is it still left?

Last thing I would like to say aboutย the picture above is:

Yes, I know that to some people UNFORTUNATELY use/used it as a trend on Facebook

AND

Yes, I know it is NOT FAIR to the other countries who are suffering as well, such as Syria, Nigeria, Afghanistan, Pakistan and the unstoppable hunger in Africa and South Asia but to me it doesn’t mean I am unaware of them, it doesn’t mean I do not care, because I do, I always have and always will DO.

That is why it disturbed me, such ideas should never occur, and you know what? I think Facebook should do a Planet Earth Flag profile picture (this idea just popped in my head like crazy) so no one can ever think about discriminating countries!

LAST BUT NOT LEAST here is a song that I’ve always cried for because of its truthful words:

Thank you for reading,

The Crystal Tree experiment

So, yesterday I went out to buy some English Tea for a girl I will be meeting in Italy from Japan AND I walked in Tiger – if you don’t know what it is, it’s a shop with all kind of stuff in it.
I saw this amazing thing: a tree made of paper and iwhen you’ve dropped just some water, crystal leaves would grow out of it. I was amazed by the idea and I bought it, so here is a pic of its evolution:

Wonderful right? ๐Ÿ˜

I went to the movies :)

Hello!ย 

As you read from the title, I went to the movies to see Kung Fu Panda 3.
20151217_201224.jpgย ย 20151217_201239.jpg

I’ve been a fan since the first movie in 2008, so hilarious, even though this one is not as funny as the others, but I think it’s because while waiting for this one I’ve seen other animations funnier than this one.

To be really honest with you I really think that nowadays animations are more for grownups than children, don’t get me wrong they are for children of course, but adults can actually understand the true meaning behind these wonderful cartoons.

I started to write this post with a purpose to doย Who Am I 2.0 or as a normal human being would say: a follow up to my older post “Who Am I?”

Now you may be wondering, what does Kung Fu Panda 3 have to do with all of this?

Well, little SPOILER ALERT ahead.

In the movie, Po (the Panda) is faced to go in battle with Spirit Warrior a.k.a. Kai and to defeat him Po has to master his Chi, which is this energy that comes withinside you and in order to do that you need to learn Who you are.ย So off he goes with his biological father and learn how to be a REAL Panda.

At the end of the movie he does master his Chi of course, but not the way he thought he would be. So yeah, it made me think that one day I would discover more things about Who I am, things I never knew or things I am no more just through experience and through time I guess.

If ever you are lost and don’t know what you are doing with your life, hang on and that lightbulb.jpeglight bulb will appear into your mind! Don’t be like me, don’t worry too much ๐Ÿ˜‰

Take care,

Michelle

 

Who am I….?

Is that a question that in your life you can really answer to?

Maybe.

But just for now I’ll tell you that I’m a 24 years oldย girlย who actually thinks she’s still between 18 and 20.
I know I’m not the only one ๐Ÿ˜’ a lot of you are out there too, I can see you ๐Ÿ˜‹

Passions? Baking and art craft ๐Ÿ˜
