Jan's birthday party

Yesterday I had the honour of being a guest at food blogger Jan's birthday party. I was busy eating non stop but I did manage to take a few snaps of some of the delicious food that was served. There was homemade finger food, parmesan cheese purchased abroad, burgers from the So Food food truck, cheese trays, cupcakes and huge cakes. The wines were equally delightful. It was such a lovely evening with lots of people but in a cosy atmosphere. Thank you Jan for the invitation, your generosity and for sharing your love for food! 

Lunch at Naturata

Yesterday's lunch at Naturata in Munsbach: pangasius fillet with fried potatoes and vegetables. It's an organic restaurant (self-service) which serves a menu du jour from Monday to Saturday. They also have many other dishes to choose from. This was the second time that I ate there and the food was really good. There is also a large organic supermarket in the same building, which is worth a visit if you are into living an organic lifestyle.

Memories of... Sintra

As I will be travelling to Portugal in a couple of weeks, I thought that I'd share with you photos from a previous trip when I spent a day in Sintra, which is not far from Lisbon. Hope you enjoy these. They certainly make me want to return to this beautiful country.

I need holidays!

I've travelled a lot this year but what I really need are holidays, i.e. time to relax. Lately I have felt that I was getting close to a burnout. Not good! The past months, I have consciously made efforts to reduce the pressure by saying no to creative collaborations and parties. I have also been decluttering my virtual and physical spaces. I have been saying yes to sleeping early, lying in on weekends and eating more healthily.

Her

Today I watched Her, a movie where Joaquin Phoenix's character falls in love with his computer, i.e. the voice of his operating system (Scarlett Johansson). The OS is very intelligent and has feelings like a real person, except that she has no physical body. The two develop a deep romantic relationship and together face similar challenges that most couples do. 

Watching the movie, I couldn't help but draw parallels to what it's being like in a long-distance relationship. I spend most of the time with my SO (not OS, haha) on WhatsApp and often it feels like the relationship only exists in a virtual world. Luckily, every so often we do get to see each other. I admit that it always feels a bit strange when you step from the virtual connection into the real world but it doesn't last for too long. Have you seen this movie and/or have you ever been in a long-distance relationship?
