Weekly Photo Challenge: Good Morning!


The Daily Post challenge is about this- 

THIS WEEK, SHOW US A PHOTO THAT SAYS “GOOD MORNING!”

It could be a shot taken during your morning walk, the morning vista out your kitchen window, your cat doing a pre-breakfast stretch, or a textured close-up of your oatmeal bubbling away at the stove.

For more info’s please visit this link Weekly Photo Challenge: Good Morning!

The following photos are my different ways of how I go my morning specially if I am in a vacation. I mostly not a breakfast eater! A cup of cappuccino, cereal, or a glass of fruits smoothie is good to go for me, and that last from 9am to 2pm.

I Love IHOP food in States! So every time I go visit to States, I make sure at least I could visit IHOP restaurant too. My problem with IHOP to me,  is there serving as it is huge for me, specially that I am a small eater at a time.

Please don't step off the city without visiting  http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&sqi=2&ved=0CCoQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.bohemiabagel.cz%2Fhome.php&ei=gfZSUviwFOei4gT3i4H4CQ&usg=AFQjCNGnqTuZSbSvB-cGVN4ZrCGRqZiPPw&sig2=Vz4WWz8a7T_ljPlk7Tryug

For those Americans whose longing for American coffee and could be able to get a chance to visit Prague! Please don’t step out of the city without visiting the restaurant “Bohemia Bagel” walking distance to Charles Bridge. For the address here’s the website  http://www.bohemiabagel.cz/home.php

The coffee is unbelievable -My husband said! “Bottomless” Yes, and it’s your Traditional American coffee. I’m not a coffee drinker but my husband does! After living almost 4 years now here in Czech republic, my husband finely settled in about his coffee here in Europe!

Bohemia Bagel reall American Coffee in Prague.:)

@ Bohemia Bagel in Prague. The real American Coffee.:)

Special Thanks to our Parish Priest. Father William, who introduced and invited us to have a morning breakfast with him one fine sunny late winter before the arrival of Spring. And the rest became my Husband favorite spots every weekend morning at Bohemia Bagel.:)

I soo Loved the taste of this

I soo Loved the taste of this Caramel Macchiato! My weekend morning is very crucial, helping the homeless on Saturday, and now I just started as a Teachers Assistance for the Religious  class for about 6-8years old kids every Sunday in the church. So before I get to my weekend commitments I surely be in Starbucks for my Caramel Macchiato, to boost up my energy. Specially now because Halloween is just nearby, I got my other favorite too- the “Pumpkin Spice latte” They are soo awesome tasteful to me, and I just make sure no CREAM on top of them.:)

My husband hates Starbucks coffee aside for- it is expensive for a cup of coffee and the worse thing for him is that the coffee Americano in Starbucks is not the real traditional coffee he remembered in States. But he goes to Starbucks, because of me! Yes, as he always says– I only go to Starbucks because of you cuz “I Love You” ahhhh soo sweet BooBoo, Thank You my Love.:)

Have a sweet-hot-good morning you all,

♥The Phantom of the Opera @ London♥


DSC_3708It was late fall season of year 2008 New York city when my first theater scene “Phantom of the Opera” was in my eyesight. But ashamed to admit that I was on dead sleep the entire scene! We traveled from Saudi Arabia, stop over to Abu Dhabi airport for few hrs. All of the sudden the airport declared a delay that ended up over 20hrs stuck in Abu Dhabi because of the ‘FOG.” YES JUST THE FOG!

The anxiety, tiredness, and feeling cranky is kind of overwhelming inside of me those moments. The next day late morning the airline staffs hand us another bad news again that our airplane going to NYC encountered a technical errors, and the only way for us to get NY, is to stop over at Heathrow airport because there they can give us the  available seats to NY. We landed UK time about 9pm I think, and we thought that will gonna get the plane that night right away but we’re all wrong because the airline brought us to the hotel to sleep that night, our flight will be the next morning. WHAT? Now we’re freaking’ delayed to our activities in NY, my husband’s words!

When we’re in the plane flying to NY the next day, my husband told me that his fancy surprised dinner, surprised horse ride, and surprised welcome cake for my first America trip just disappeared. And the only one left is his surprised theater, hoping we won’t get delayed again. 

We landed 2pm NY time, and the worst scenario striked again. Our checked in luggage never made to NYC. Ohh boy what a lucky trip huh! We run to our hotel, and went shopping for clothes, shoes, and winter coats. Around 7pm same day we went to the theater scene at times square. It was pretty awesome when I saw the sittings inside, people wearing nice dresses. Then after that I don’t remember anything at all, coz all I can recalled was I’m already on my dream-land when the music start that time, so with my husband, we do both snoring that “Phantom of the Opera” at NYC.:)

The following photos are my 2nd Phantom of the Opera were I successfully finished watching without snoring, and not in NYC but in London January of 2013.

A visit to the Buckingham Palace London


When people heard about England, I think the first one comes-up was the Queen, the Palace, the London Bridge, the Royal Guards, and the words “God save the Queen”! I was in London a week ago, and one of our list to see about London is to watch the changing of the guards at the Buckingham palace, and of course hopping to see the Queen as well.:) So guys the following photos are my adventures during my Buckingham palace last week, have fun.:)

Buckingham Palace London.

Buckingham Palace is the official London residence and principal workplace of the British Monarch which is located in the city of Westminster.

The weather is cold, I think this time was about -7C temperature, the Sky has no colors at all but a grayish foggy day.:)

The only one I can complained during the changing of the guards is the guards march is kind of short, because of course it’s winter, and I understand that! But I just hope that the guards do their march positions in front of the gate like they’re doing during the summer, and not inside the front yard of the palace as you can notice in this photo, the positioned march is inside the yard.

The marching inside the front yard of the palace!  And I can’t see it at all, because of people are packed next to the gate. In this photo I raised my Tripod up using the multiple shots of my camera.:)

Chef Gordon Ramsay @ his Restuarant London~~~:)


 

Chef Gordon Ramsay

Chef Gordon Ramsay

I’m back from my short holiday in London. It was an awesome experienced from food, things to do, and to things to see! On our first night in London we went to the most popular Chef today the Restaurant of Gordon Ramsay at Claridge’s Hotel London. We made our reservation a week early to make sure that will get a table. We did not stay at Claridge’s Hotel because the price per night is pretty much out of our budget as I think it start from “600£Pound” so we end-up staying at Crown Plaza hotel at St.James street which is affordable for our budget. From our Hotel to Claridge’s Hotel is about 6£ Taxi so that’s not bad at all, plus Crown Plaza is pretty much walking distance to Buckingham Palace, to the Big Ben, to the ferry cruise’s, and to the London Eye where the center of attractions are located. 

Before then I been following Chef Ramsay’s journey through his TV-shows so at least I could learn  his techniques and passions about the business. Because I have a plan of building my own business restaurant/Coffee shop in the future hopefully. So I put myself into searching about the business like the Managing process, the Food Menu, the Decor, the Building, What/Who your Target, Location, and more relevant issues in building business.

So guys the following photos are my yummy experienced at Chef Gordon Ramsay’s Restaurant in London.

The Bread is a complement.

The Bread is a complements. I Love the round bread but not much the other one because it’s kind of hard. When my husband asked me about the bread! I answered him that I’m hesitant to continue eating all the bread except the rounded one, because it’s kinda hard and it might break my 1 crown teeth hahahah!:) My Husband and I both have same dinner Menu except for deserts. The SCALLOPS? ohhh my it’s really YUMMY and I wish to eat 10pcs more of that YUMMYLICIOUS SCALLOPS.:)

The Beef Wellington? Ohh

The Beef Wellington? Ohh Boy it is mouth-watering yummy, the meat is very tender, the sauce is darn good, the baby beans cooked good. But the one I don’t like is the little Onion or is that Shallot? correct me if I’m wrong! I don’t like the taste and the green leafy vegetable is I don’t like the taste aswell. Now I don’t know if the Shallot and the Green Leafy grass should be eaten or just for a show on the plate! I don’t know! But so far the Beef Wellington is excellent and yummy delicious, and I can eat more too.:)

I Love the atmospher, the decors, and of course the friendly helpful Butlers.:)

I Love the atmosphere, the decor’s, and the friendly helpful Butlers are awesome.:)

Ready for deserts? 🙂

Soufflé for my Husband and Cold Valrhona chocolate fondant with poached cherry flambé

Soufflé for my Husband, and Cold Valrhona chocolate fondant with poached cherry flambé for me.:) I’m not much to my desert because it’s very sweet on my taste but surely it is yummy though, I just hope that the sweetness is not that much overwhelming according to my taste. And yeah I tasted my husband Soufflé and I almost wanted to order one more.:)

I Love yummy Complements:)

I Love it yummy Complements:)

It's all worthy and yeah if you'd ask me if I'd go back again? YES I will go back again.:)

Claridge’s Hotel at London.:)

The experienced was overwhelming good from food which is exquisite, to service which is excellent, and I like the fact that they let you know the cooking time process like how much time you have to wait in-order to deliver your meal! You think you’ll get bored on waiting your order? NOPE! because complements is there to the rescue like bread, the Chef soup, and more bread.The best thing I like having my dinner at a fancy dinning is that it made me calm,  just to enjoy having fun talking with my man, slowly sipping my wine glass, and nothing else to think about but to talk plan for tomorrow, and to enjoy the meal that night.:) 

Again guys if you’d ever planning to visit London! I myself highly recommend you to visit Chef Gordon Ramsay restaurant at Claridge’s Hotel.:)

Have a good weekend and a Happy Romantic dinning you all,

Yen-Yen:)
