Schiphol hotels

Schiphol hotels – Mercure Hotel Schiphol Terminal – Image Source In my previous post I wrote about ALMOST not being able to leave China. I am so blessed, that everything worked out in the end. When I arrived at Schiphol International Airport, I ran into an old friend from Secondary Modern School. He spent a year in China, in a city named GuangZhou. Though I smelled like wet dog, we sat there for an hour or three, talking to one another about our experiences. Before I left China, my good […]

wrong date

Yes, it’s me! I bought the ticket to go home, but I bought the wrong date! For those of you who know me, you will know that I’m “Miss Last Minute.” Almost every single thing I do, is done at the last minute. Lucky for me, things haven’t gone horribly wrong (yet). I drove my parents CRAZY! Well, I still do, LOL! Now I drive my boyfriend crazy. My boyfriend knows me very well, because he kept telling me to “buy the right date, buy the right date!” I told […]

interpreter

I love being an Interpreter, for it allows me to travel to different places, meet people from all walks of life. My childhood was very much a normal childhood, my parents were protective. In my kiddy years I watched a lot of movies with my parents, but I always had to cover my eyes with my hands if there was any kissing (or some inappropriate touching). In my previous blog I mentioned that the only prostitutes I’d ever seen, were the ones on TV. No one happier than Yours Truly at the […]

interpreter

In the smallest plane I’ve EVER been in in my entire life! Aside from the pilot, it fits five other people. We were on our way to the interior. I love my job! In a previous post I talked about some of the work I did in Suriname. I loved working as an unofficial Interpreter for two very amazing cultural anthropologists. We met when they were in search of people who spoke both Spanish and Portuguese. They had to do research for the Ministry of Health concerning HIV and STDs. It […]

adventurer

Image Source – Rolling Stoned NL I love adventure! No idea where I get that from, because my parents really aren’t thrill seekers. Before I tell you about a very exciting part of my life back home, let me tell you where exactly my beautiful country is. Though my beautiful country is located in South America, it is part of the Caribbean Community. Our country’s history and that of the Caribbean islands, is the same. We had slaves brought over from Africa, then Asian indentured laborers. I also think some island […]

natural hair

I’ve been chemically treating my hair since the age of twelve. As a graduation present from Mom and Dad, I relaxed my hair at the age of twelve. On my way to Secondary Modern School, I really wanted to belong to “the cool” crowd. What was not cool? Going to “big kids” school with my natural hair, my thick braids. Thanks to both my Grans, I have thick and beautiful hair. Of course I wasn’t proud of it at the time. All of the magazine covers graced with white women with […]

learning about blogging

Blogging is more than just a hobby for me now. It’s more of a necessity. I never knew one could get addicted to blogging. When I started my first blog, I used Blogger. One of the main reasons I did that, is because its so easy to navigate. Some time afterwards, I started seeing beautiful self-hosted blogs and thought, “THAT is what I need to do! See you, Blogger!” What I didn’t know at the time, is that if one buys one of those pretty themes from Themeforest, you also have […]
