Iata ca am ajuns si in capatul celalalt al lumii! In perioada 22 – 25 octombrie 2018 am participat la RECon Asia-Pacific Conference, eveniment organizat de cea mai importanta organizatie mondiala in materie de retail, si anume ICSC – International Council of Shopping Centers. Conferinta de 4 zile a livrat informatii cu adevarat utile pentru domeniul in care activez. Schimbul de know-how cu alte culturi si entitati juridice din toate colturile lumii au fost mai mult decat binevenite pentru mine si colegele mele.

Proiectie RECON ASIA fatada Pavilion Kuala Lumpur

Am calcat pe continent asiatic si senzatia a fost incredibila! Am ajuns in Malaysia, o tara din ASIA de Sud-Est, in imediata vecinatate a Thailandei si Singapore. Prima data am auzit de Malaysia cand am fost la un interviu pentru a deveni stewardesa la Emirates Airline. Mi se parea o alta lume cu totul! Si chiar asa e.

Drumul pana acolo a fost anevoios, insa zborul si serviciile de la bordul avioanelor Qatar Airways au usurat mult situatia. M-am uitat la o groaza de filme si am stiut in fiecare moment deasupra carui tinut zburam. Pe ecranul pozitionat pe tetiera scaunului din fata gaseai filme artistice, emisiuni TV, seriale, muzica din toate colturile lumii, spectacolele artistilor consacrati, spectacole de stand-up comedy si nu numai.

La bordul avioanelor Qatar Airways

Escala la Doha a fost cel putin interesanta, avand in vedere ca nu vazusem pana atunci atatea persoane imbracate in Abaya, Hijab, Sheila sau Niqab (sursa info: Kudika.ro).

  • Abaya este un vestmant lung, negru, destul de lejer si prevazut adesea cu fermoar sau cu nasturi in fata. 
  • Hijabul acopera doar capul femeii arabe. El poate fi purtat in diverse moduri, accesorizat cu orice fel de haine. Femeile care aleg acest acoperamant, opteaza totusi pentru haine care nu le dezvaluie prea multa piele. Hijabul este principiul modestiei si include si un model de comportament, atat pentru femei, cat si pentru barbati.
  • Sheila este o esarfa neagra ce acopera capul. In general, aceste straie fac parte din portul traditional al diferitelor regiuni ale Orientului Mijlociu, deci sunt purtate mai degraba pentru scop cultural, fara semnificatii religioase.
  • De cele mai multe ori, niqabul este confundat cu burqa, insa acesta acopera intreg corpul, dar nu acopera fata in intregime, ci lasa o mica deschizatura care permite femeii sa-si arate ochii. In prezent, femeile arabe, care conduc acoperite cu un niqab, in Franta, sunt amendate, aceasta fiind considerata o infractiune, comparabila cu vorbitul la telefon. 

Am stat cazata chiar in inima capitalei Malaysiei – Kuala Lumpur, la un hotel de 5 stele, respectiv Mandarin Oriental. Cuvantul “lux” este definitoriu pentru aceasta locatie. Mi-a placut mult ca era situat langa KLCC Park, Suria Shopping Center (puteam sa merg in pijamale pana la mall pentru ca distanta era de doar… 30 secunde), moschee si Petronas Twin Towers. Sincera sa fiu, a fost cea mai impresionanta priveliste EVER! Pana si patul era pozitionat astfel incat sa adormi cu acel view in minte. AMAZING VIEW indeed!

Vizitand Moscheea Masjid As-Syakirin

Este acel gen de hotel care iti pune ziarul in usa in fiecare dimineata, gasesti ciocolatele pe perna in fiecare zi, are spa in interior, piscina in exterior, salon de infrumusetare si sala #zen in care poti face yoga la orice ora si nu numai. Nici nu apucai sa verbalizezi un gand ca deja staff-ul ti-l indeplinea. Mancarea a fost cat se poate de diversificata cu dulciuri facute in-house, sucuri naturale si specificuri diferite. Gaseai orice preparat pentru orice tip de client mai mult sau mai putin pretentios. Sentimentul meu preferat? Sa savurez un smoothie in piscina infinita la ora 17:10, ora la care incepea slujba in moschee. Ma simteam pur si simplu rupta de lume!

Lucruri cu adevarat interesante despre Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia:

  • Localnicii nu au animal de companie.
  • In magazine, am gasit produse de imbracaminte <Made in Romania>.
  • Umiditatea aerului este incredibil de ridicata (80%). In prima zi am crezut ca ma sufoc cand trageam aer in piept. Clima este calda, umeda si ploioasa si poate fi cu adevarat alarmanta pentru cine vine din alt colt al lumii.
  • Moneda nationala este Ringgit si are aproape aceeasi paritate ca leul nostru. Asadar, daca mergi la shopping un tricou de la Zara costa la fel ca cel din tara. De notat este ca produsele sunt cu adevarat calitative.
  • Nu vezi nici un caine pe strada. De ce? Pentru ca patrupedul este considerat un animal foarte murdar. Fiind o tara predominant musulmana, cultura acestora nu le permite sa puna mana pe caini.
  • Asiaticii poarta incaltamintea cu un numar mai mare.
  • Desi sunt obisnuiti cu turistii, li se pare fascinant ca esti de alta culoare ca ei. Asadar, voiau multi sa faca selfie-uri cu noi.
  • McDonald’s nu are sosuri in meniu. Ba mai mult, li se pare straniu ca simti nevoia de sos la cartofi. Si inca ceva: hamburgerii sunt picanti! De fapt, toata mancarea e picanta.
  • Personalul din retail este cu adevarat amabil.
  • Toate cladirile sunt realmente inalte (nici una nu e sub 30 etaje).
  • Nu am gasit nuanta mea de fond de ten. Desi sunt foarte multi turisti, produsele de frumusete sunt potrivite pentru pigmentul asiatic.
  • In acea parte a lumii nimeni nu a auzit de Romania. M-am asteptat sa aud referinte precum Nadia Comaneci, Gica Hagi, INNA, Alexandra Stan s.a. Din pacate, nu a fost cazul.
  • Se practica jafurile de pe motocicleta (ti se trage poseta de pe umar pur si simplu). Nu mi s-a intamplat, insa, mare atentie!
  • In Kuala Lumpur nu vei intalni mesh-uri publicitare/bannere/autocolante, ci doar ecrane. Ecrane sub orice forma si de orice tip, amplasate pe fatasa mall-ului, pe stalpii de sustinere ale cladirilor, in statiile de autobuz, oriunde.
  • Mall-urile sunt IMENSE. Am vizitat Suria KLCC, Lot 10 si Pavilion (cel mai luxos din toate cu marci precum Burberry, Gucci, Celine si Salvatore Ferragamo). Pavilion are chiar culoar separat pentru Exclusive Brands. De exemplu, in Suria KLCC am sesizat ca se practica sa ai mai multe zone de Food & Beverage. Motivul? Fiind atat de mare, e anevoios sa mergi dintr-un capat in altul doar pentru food court.

Locuri de facut in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia:

  1. Mergi fara o directie anume prin oras.
  2. Nu rata turnurile gemene (Petronas Twin Towers)! Eu am stat cazata chiar langa hotelul din imediata vecinatate. Nici nu trebuie sa te chinui sa le cauti pentru ca le vezi oricum din diferite zone ale orasului. Sunt impresionante mai mult pe dinafara, intrucat inauntru sunt doar birouri. Poti sa te plimbi in KLCC Park sa admiri speciile de arbori pe care nu le intalnesti oriunde.
  3. Mergi cu monorail-ul la ore de varf pentru senzatii tari demne de transportul public din India.
  4. In multele zile petrecute acolo m-am intrebat care e mancarea lor specifica (care oricum e spicy). Mancare autentica malaeziana nu gasesti chiar la orice colt de strada, aceea este chinezeasca sau indiana. Fast food-urile internationale au adaptat retetele la specificul malaysian.
  5. Orasul de sus se vede cel mai bine din turnul Menara, in special la lasatul serii.
  6. Nu poti sari peste Batu Caves (cel cu statuia aurita la intrare). Pe masura ce urci scarile, te vei intalni cu o multime de maimute furacioase! Mare atentie la sticle de apa, fructe si orice lucru pe care il tii in mana sau in spate (gen rucsac). Maimutele te vor “ataca” fara sa stea pe ganduri.
  7. Viziteaza o moschee! In semn de respect, poarta pantaloni lungi si o bluza cu umerii acoperiti. La intrare oricum iti vor da o pelerina lunga si verde pe care o vei incheia pana la gat. Apropo, vei lasa incaltamintea la intrare.
  8. Mananca cat de des poti ananas, cocos, papaya si orice fruct de prin zonele alea! E gustul veritabil pe care nu-l vei gasi niciunde.
  9. In Kuala Lumpur vei transforma shoppingul in sport de performanta. Aici shopping-ul capata un nou sens. Pe langa brandurile deja consacrate, vei gasi branduri asiatice cu croieli atipice in adevaratul sens al cuvantului. Intocmeste-ti bine itinerariul sa bifezi tot in mallurile imense, buticurile sofisticate, nenumaratele piete si targuri de profil. 

Nu m-am apucat sa scriu ce anume trebuie sa vizitezi pentru ca sigur ti-ai facut deja o lista. Doar simt nevoia sa subliniez ca, odata ajunsi aici, trebuie sa vizitezi tot ce apuci. Iti vor trebui cam 2 saptamani ca sa parcurgi cat de cat capitala sub toate formele ei. La cate obiective turistice si experiente interesante poti trai aici, vei simti ca nici 2 saptamani nu sunt suficiente. Inca ceva, eu nu am facut nici un vaccin inainte de a pleca. Am avut grija sa ma hidratez bine si sa mananc din locuri safe.

Inainte de a merge in Malaysia consulta website-ul oficial al MAE pentru conditiile de calatorie !>>> www.mae.ro/travel-alerts

PS: Am facut sute de poze din toate unghiurile si, daca as fi putut, le-as fi pus pe toate aici.

E o destinatie MUST SEE! Go. Go. Go.

HEY HEY HEY!

Pentru ca suntem oameni si tendinta este sa empatizam unul cu altul. Tindem sa fim curiosi, sa punem intrebari, sa cautam raspunsuri si sa ne largim orizonturile. Dorim sa crestem, sa rezonam cu idei, oameni si locuri. Iata ca astazi vreau sa impartasesc cu voi 30 lucruri despre mine

Nu-mi doresc decat ca aceste randuri sa ajunga la fiecare dintre voi. Simt nevoia ca este momentul sa ma cunoasteti mai bine. Eu imi doresc sa va cunosc curiozitatile si interesele, intr-un cuvant pe voi! #MeetMeHalfWay

CLOSER TO FASHION by Adriana Vieriu creste doar alaturi de voi! Va multumesc din toata inima pentru faptul ca ma cititi. Promit sa va rasplatesc cu un continut de calitate si proiecte frumoase.

READY. SET. GO.

  • Florile mele preferate sunt lalelele.
  • Cred mult in echilibru, atat in viata cat si in lucruri. Ma caracterizeaza simetria, liniile drepte, punctele si cercurile. Manifest acest lucru si in abordarea tinutelor (proportii) si in frumusete (manichiura). De cele mai multe ori, manichiura mea are un design grafic, uneori minimalist. Nu ma dau in vand dupa fluturi, floricele si chestii #girlie.
  • Anotimpul meu preferat e vara! Soare torid. Seri racoroase. Ploi scurte. Cocktailuri. Frappe #OnTheRocks in loc de cafea. Bronz. Sandalute. Ochelari de soare.
  • Sunt innebunita dupa Coca Cola, cafea si muzica taaaaare! In masina, acasa, la festivaluri, oriunde.

  • Dupa cum stiti, o catelusa sharpei pe care o cheama Maya si dupa care sunt absolut innebunita! E jucausa, simpatica foc si imi umple casa si inima de bucurie. Da. Sunt o mare iubitoare de animale. PS: In plus, putin sport cu lesa in mana n-a facut rau nimanui.

  • Am o pasiune nestavilita pentru chockere, hamuri si tot ce are franjuri.

  • Imi place mai mult cum imi sta cu onduleuri lejere, in detrimentul parului drept, desi il pot mai mult drept. Traiasca placa de par! 🙂
  • Lucrul care ma relaxeaza negresit este apa de intindere mare. Gasesc acel #ZenMood cand privesc marea, oceanul si ascult valurile.
  • Cea mai mare frustrare a mea este ca nu stiu sa inot. Am incercat de nenumarate ori sa invat, insa am o temere nestavilita de apa si inec.
  • Consider ca unul dintre cele mai mari castiguri personale este sa calatoresti. Amintirile dintr-o calatorie imi fac ziua mai buna. Rememorarea fotografiilor ma fac sa zambesc si parca retraiesc acele momente intr-o clipita.

  • Exemplele mele in viata sunt mama si sora mea: 2 luptatoare din toate punctele de vedere! Le iubesc.
  • Sunt un pic obsedata de bunele maniere.
  • Imi plac tabieturile. Servitul cafelei dimineata. Rasfoirea revistei preferate de moda intr-o sambata dupa-amiaza.
  • Imi plac oamenii sinceri dar nu prea sinceri, directi dar nu taiosi.
  • Nu suport oamenii care promit si nu fac.
  • Imi plac surprizele, petrecerile surpriza si plecarile spontane.
  • Cred in zodii, insa doar in trasaturile caracteristice fiecarui semn zodiacal. Zodiacul zilnic mi se pare o prostie.
  • Mi se par fascinante limbile straine. Stiu engleza, franceza, italiana si recunosc franturi din germana, spaniola si greaca. Ador sa ma plimb pe strazi si sa nu inteleg o iota din ce spun strainii. Asa imi pot imagina despre ce vorbesc.
  • Imi place design-ul interior. Mult.
  • Sunt cel mai bine inspirata cand sunt singura. Si cand ascult muzica. Si cand am o priveliste de sus, eventual de la un nivel inalt de unde pot privi intregul oras.
  • Devin usor claustrofoba in lifturile intunecoase.
  • Ador aglomeratia si orasele aglomerate.
  • Sunt innebunita dupa mancarea chinezeasca.
  • “Parca mi-ar mai trebui o pereche de pantofi!”
  • Trec foarte usor de la <office stiff look> la <grunge attitude & boyish style>.
  • Imi plac bijuteriile handmade.
  • Ador ciresele. Abia astept luna mai.
  • Bautura mea preferata este #Martini – cred ca de la Sex&The City m-a luat.
  • Imi place sa citesc. Carti. Reviste. Ziare. Orice.

Destul despre mine. Spune-mi despre tine!


HEY HEY HEY!

We are human and we connect with each other. We tend to empathize, to get curious, to ask questions and seek answers. The objective is to wide the spectrum, to grow, to resonate with ideas, people and places. That’s why, today, I want to share with you 30 things about me

I only want that this article reach you because I feel like it’s time to get to know each other better. I wish to know your interests and curiosities, YOU. #MeetMeHalfWay

CLOSER TO FASHION by Adriana Vieriu grows because of you! Truly thank you for reading me. I promise to reward you with high quality content and beautiful projects.

READY. SET. GO.

  • My favorite flowers are tulips.
  • I truly believe in balance, in life and in things. Symmetry characterizes me, straight lines dots and circles. My intension is to express it in my outfits (proportions) and beauty (manicure). My manicure often has a graphic design, sometimes minimalist. I don’t do butterflies, flowers and other #girlie stuff.
  • My favorite season is summer! Hot sun. Chilly nights. Short rain. Cocktails. Frappe #OnTheRocks instead of coffee. Tan lines. Sandals. Sunglasses.
  • I love Coke and looooooud music! In my car, at home, at festivals, everywhere.
  • The owner of 2 tattoos: a diamond at my right wrist and a heart at my right foot. I got stuck with the idea of a third one. #ComingSoon
  • The owner of a sharpei dog called Maya and I love her! She’s playful, cute and she fills my heart and my house with joy. Yes. I am quite an animal lover. PS: A little sport with the leash in the hand never hurt anybody.
  • An unexpected insane passion for chockers, harness and fringes.
  • It’s better with curly hair, than with straight one. But, most of the times, it’s straight. The straightener is my friend! 🙂
  • The thing that relaxes me the most is the water. I find that #ZenMood when I look at the sea, ocean and listen to the waves. 
  • My biggest frustration is that I cannot swim. After numerous fails, I couldn’t overcome my fear of water and drowning.
  • Addicted to travel! One of the biggest personal accomplishments in life is to travel. Memories like that make my day sometimes. Browsing through the photos make me smile and I live it all over again.
  • My models in life are my mother and my sister: 2 fighters! I love them.
  • Obsessed with good manners.
  • Love some habits – The morning coffee. Reading my favorite magazine on a Saturday afternoon.
  • Admire sincere people but not too sincere, straight but not the ‘no turning back’ ones.
  • Truly can’t stand people who promise something and then, don’t do it.
  • Love surprises, surprise parties and spontaneous trips.
  • I believe in Astrology and in those characteristic signs. Daily horoscope is bullshit, my opinion only.
  • Foreign languages – truly fascinating. I learned English, French, Italian and some words in German, Spanish and Greek. I love walking on the streets and not be able to understand a thing the foreign people say. That way, I can only imagine what are they saying.
  • Like Interior Design. A lot.
  • My inspiration comes when I am alone and listen to music. When I look at an upper view of the city.
  • I get claustrophobia in dark elevators.
  • Enhoy being in a crowd and in crowdy / big cities.
  • Chinese food.
  • Shoppaholic – “I want to buy more shoes!”
  • Can easily cross from <an office stiff look> from <the grunge attitude & boyish style>.
  • Handmade jewelry.
  • Cherries. I can’t wait May to come.
  • My favorite drink is #Martini – I think I got it from Sex&The City.
  • I love reading. Books. Magazines. Papers. Anything.

Enough about me. Let’s talk about you!

[RO]                                                                                                                                        [EN]

Ce mai e de spus despre Londra decat ca este una din capitalele modei?! Nu mai spun de moda strazii!

City-break-ul de 4 zile in Londra din luna mai mi-a reincarcat bateriile! Mai cu seama datorita faptului ca am fost in compania celor mai bune prietene! Am vizitat tot ce se putea vizita, am cumparat tot ce se putea cumpara, am ras cu gura pana la urechi, am mancat mancarurile lor specifice + preferintele noastre personale (mancare japoneza si mancare chinezeasca), am vizitat taramul-mama, adica China Town (hihi!) si m-am bucurat de imbulzeala unui oras cu adevarat aglomerat! Cei care ma cunosc stiu ca imi place agitatia! Iata cam ce am vizitat! In plus, am sarbatorit ziua de nastere a minunatei mele prietene #Delia cu sushi, un cheesecake si un vin bun!

#HappyBirthday GIRL

Tinutele pe care le-am purtat in Londra le voi descrie in articole urmatoare! #StayTuned

#1. Piccadilly este una din strazile importante din partea centrala a Londrei, chiar intre Hyde Park Corner, la vest, si Picadilly Circus, in est. Am stat pe scarile de sub faimoasa statuie a lui EROS si am rontait bomboane M&M. #DeNepretuit

IMG_7108IMG_7114

#2. Castelul Windsor este cel mai mare si cel mai vechi castel locuit din lume. Este situat in centrul orasului Windsor din comitatul Berkshire, Anglia. Sub cladirea castelului curge Tamisa care face legatura pe apa cu Londra. Regina Elisabeta II petrece aici frecvent sfarsitul de saptamana, unde primeste vizite oficiale sau private a unor ministri sau sefi de state. Conform izvoarelor istorice castelul dateaza din timpul lui Wilhelm Cuceritorul. Constructia castelului, garnizoanei, fortaretei, inchisorii si partii locuite este coordonata direct de unii monarhi englezi. Am petrecut aici ore intregi pana l-am parcurs pe indelete pe tot.

IMG_7435IMG_7426IMG_7411IMG_7421

#3. Palatul Buckingham este resedinta principala din Londra a monarhilor britanici. Situat in Orasul Westminster, palatul este folosit pentru evenimente de stat si pentru cazarea invitatilor regali. A fost centrul social al poporului britanic in timpuri de bucurie sau criza.

#4. Trafalgar Square este una din cele mai importante atractii turistice din Londra. Noi am bifat-o destul de repede deoarece eram pe fuga spre aeroport. Un check-in, o poza cu faimoasa Coloana a lui Nelson, strajuita de patru statui in forma de lei si o Coca Cola mai tarziu, am trecut spre…

#5. SEA LIFE London Aquarium  este gazduit de County Hall, o cladire ridicata la inceputul secolului al 20-lea si care a servit drept sediu pentru Consiliul Orasului Londra pana cand a fost abandonata in anul 1986. Acvariul si-a deschis portile in 1997 si se intinde pe trei etaje. Aici pot fi admirate peste 3000 de specii de animale marine si plante, aflate in peste 50 de rezervoare care contin o cantitate impresionanta de apa – peste doua milioane de litri. Aceasta cifra face din Acvariul din Londra una dintre cele mai mari atractii de acest gen din toata Europa. Acvariul este impartit in mai multe zone. Fiecare dintre aceste zone reprezinta un biotop diferit cum ar fi fluvii sau oceane. Exista un acvariu foarte mare care simuleaza conditiile prezente in biotopul Tamisei. Alte ecosisteme sunt prezentate in acvarii care contin o varietate impresionanta de pesti si alte animale cum ar fi caracatite, calamari sau meduze. De asemenea, am vazut rechini, piranha, caluti de mare, crocodili, pisici de mare.

IMG_7499IMG_7474IMG_7510IMG_7500Cea mai mare atractie o reprezinta un imens acvariu cu rechini si pisici de mare. Eu am ramas placut impresionata de ecranul de la finalul turului in care erai proiectat iar, in fata ta, apareau niste ursi polari care intrau si ieseau din apa. O experienta unica! Am mai vizitat un acvariu acum 3 ani, in Grecia – CretAquarium, insa nu a fost la fel de impresionant. Recomand cu drag turul SEA LIFE London Aquarium, este o experienta unica.

IMG_7522IMG_7469

#6. Oxford Street este una dintre cele mai cunoscute strazi pentru cumparaturi, pentru cei ca mine #Shopaholic #ShoeAddict #Fashionista. Aici gasesti supermagazine celebre precum Selfridges, Forever 21, Marks&Spencer, John Lewis, ZARA, Primark, H&M, United Colors of Benetton, Adidas, Aldo, Debenhams, Massimo Dutti, Mango, New Look, ASOS, SCHUCH, River Island, TOPSHOP, Food Locker, Accessorize, Calzedonia, Dorothy Perkins, Folli Follie, Fossil, NEXT, Timberland si muuuulte altele. Te furau ochii intr-un mare fel si pe stanga si pe dreapta, numai bani sa fi avut la purtator si gaseai orice. Tot pe strazile acestea, moda era la cote maxime! M-am apucat sa fotografiez tinutele preferate insa am epuizat capacitatea de stocare a telefonului dupa cateva minute, deci, va puteti imagina cam ce #LondonStreetStyle era.

IMG_7126IMG_7127IMG_7129IMG_7221

#7. British Museum, fodat in anul 1753, este unul dintre cele mai vechi si mai impozante muzee din lume. Muzeul s-a deschis publicului la 15 ianuarie 1759. Colectia de inceput continea doar manuscrisuri, carti, obiecte uscate din natura si cateva antichitati. Acum are exponate variind de la mumii egiptene la comori romane. Inainte de a-l vizita am baut o cafea Starbucks pentru doza necesara de energie. Si bine am facut pentru ca a durat ore bune!

IMG_7278IMG_7259IMG_7247

In prezent British Museum are expuse numeroase obiecte de o valoare inestimabila, multe din acestea cunoscute publicului precum: Piatra Rosetta, Craniul de cristal, Sfinxul din Taharqo, un fragment din Columna lui Traian, Bustul lui Julius Caesar s.a. Obiectele sunt cuprinse in galeriile tematice ale muzeului: Africa, Asia, America, Egiptul Antic, Roma, Grecia antica, Europa, Orientul Mijlociu, s.a. Asadar, pot sa spun ca am vizitat Japonia, Coreea, China intr-un tur de cateva ore prin acest muzeu extraordinar. De asemenea, am citit despre evolutia economiei lumii, evolutia banilor, am invatat despre provenienta si inventatorul mecanismelor de ceasuri, colectia de orologii, istoria gheiselor, sarcofage, masti funerare sau portrete si mumii egiptene. Numarul de vizitatori ai British Museum este de aproximativ 6.000.000 pe an. Ma bucur ca anul acesta am contribuit si eu la acest numar.

IMG_7293

#8. M&M’s World Store este raiul pe pamant pentru impatimitii de bomboane M&M. Deschis in 2011, este  unul dintre cele mai mari magazine de dulciuri din lume. Aici ai o groaza de variante de bomboane M&M pe care nici nu le gasesti pe rafturile magazinelor. Poti achizitiona tot felul de jucarii, cani, farfurii, obiecte decorative, ornamente de Craciun, tricouri, pijamale, accesorii, mingi si alte cate si mai cate lucrusoare, toate marca M&M in orice fel de culoare. Magazinul asta e raiul copiilor si dusmanul dietelor!

IMG_7093IMG_7077IMG_7081

#9. China Town este China in miniatura. In cartierul cu pricina vei gasi restaurante, suveniruri, racoritoare si obiceiuri 100% chinezesti. Mirosul de pe strazile acestea este specific bucatariei chinezesti si, nu numai ca am fost in elementul meu, insa am si degustat tot felul de bunatati impreuna cu fetele mele.

What’s there to say about London, rather than it’s one of the fashion capitals of fashion itself?! Not to mention the street style!

The city-break in London in May this year recharged my batteries! The big plus was that I traveled with my best friends! I went to visit everything that I had to visit, I bought everything that called my name, I laughed in the best company ever, I tasted their English Breakfast + our personal preferences (Japanese food, and Chinese food), I visited my home town, meaning China Town (hihi!) and I enjoyed the fun of a truly crowded city! Those of you who already met me, know that I love big cities! Here’s what I visited there! Besides, we celebrated #Delia’s birthday – my amazing friend – with sushi, an amazing cheesecake and a good wine!

#HappyBirthday GIRL

I will describe the outfits I wore in London in the next posts! #StayTuned

#1. Piccadilly is one of the most important streets in Central London, right between the Hyde Park Corner, (W) and Picadilly Circus (E). I enjoyed my M&M candies right under the famous Statue of EROS #Priceless

IMG_7117IMG_7109

#2. The Windsor Castle is the biggest and the oldest castle in the world, situated in the center of Windsor City, in Berkshire, England. Underneath it it’s the River Thames that connects Windsor to London. Queen Elisabeth II spends lots of time here during the weekends, when she receives lots of official visits from ministers and state chiefs. The history says that the castle was built during the time of Wilhelm The Conqueror. The monarchs coordinate the castle, the garrison, the fortress, the prison and the household. I spend here the whole day just to visit everything.

IMG_7431IMG_7424IMG_7412

#3. The Buckingham Palace is the main residence of the English monarchs in London. It’s situated in Westminster City and is used strictly for State events and for accommodation of the royal guests. It was the main location for the British people in the time of crisis or joy.

#4. Trafalgar Square is an important tourist attraction in London. We checked it out really fast because we were on our way to the airport. A quick Facebook check-in, a picture with the famous Nelson Column with those 4 lions and a Coke later, we were on our way to…

#5. SEA LIFE London Aquarium is situated in The County Hall, a building built in the beginning of the 20th century that served as headquarters for the London City Council until it was abandoned in 1986. The aquarium opened the gates in 1997 and it has 3 floors. Here you can admire over 3.000 species of marine animals and plants, in over 50 tanks with an enormous amount of water – over 2 million liters. This number places the London Aquarium in the top attractions of this kind in Europe. The aquarium is divided in multiple areas. Each one represents a different biotop such as rivers or oceans.  There is one big area that simulates the marine conditions of The River Thames. There were different kind of fish, octopus, squids or jellyfish. I saw lots of sharks,  piranha, sea horses, crocodile, stingrays.

IMG_7485IMG_7483IMG_7482IMG_7478IMG_7481

The biggest attraction is a big aquarium with sharks and stingrays. I was impressed with the big screen at the end of the tour where there were projected some polar bears right in front of you. They came out of the water. An amazing experience! I visited a different aquarium 3 years ago in Greece – CretAquarium, but it wasn’t so impressive. I recommend the tour of SEA LIFE London Aquarium, because is a unique experience.

IMG_7486

#6. Oxford Street is one of the most popular street for shopping, for those like me #Shopaholic #ShoeAddict #Fashionista. Here you can find lots of famous brands like Selfridges, Forever 21, Marks&Spencer, John Lewis, ZARA, Primark, H&M, United Colors of Benetton, Adidas, Aldo, Debenhams, Massimo Dutti, Mango, New Look, ASOS, SCHUCH, River Island, TOPSHOP, Food Locker, Accessorize, Calzedonia, Dorothy Perkins, Folli Follie, Fossil, NEXT, Timberland and many others. Everything around me stole my eye, if I only had the money to buy them all. On this particular street, the street style was insane! I took some photos of some outfits but I filled the phone storage immediately, because there it was – the #LondonStreetStyle.

IMG_7188IMG_7199IMG_7209IMG_7205IMG_7206IMG_7198

#7. British Museum, founded in 1753, is one of the oldest and imposing museums in the world. The museum opened its gates on 15th of January 1759. The first exhibits were some manuscripts, old books, dried leaves and antiques. Nowadays you can find there Egyptian mummies and Roman treasures. Before I went in to visit it, I took a shot of a Starbucks coffee for the energy. Well done because it took me some time to visit it all!

IMG_7280IMG_7295IMG_7301IMG_7294

Nowadays, the British Museum has lots of priceless antiques with just like: The Rosetta Stone, The Crystal Skull, The Taharqo Sphinx, a fragment of The Column of Traian, The half-length portrait of Julius Caesar etc. The objects are situated in different galleries of the museum like: Africa, Asia, America, Ancient Egypt, Rome, The Ancient Greece, Europe, Middle East etc. Therefore, I can truly say that I visited Japan, Korea, China in a couple of hours. I read the evolution of the world economy, the evolution of the money, the inventor of the mechanism of the watches, I saw the collection of the timepieces, the history of the Geisha, sarcophagus and funeral masks or Egyptian mummies and portraits. Annual, there are over 6.000.000 visitors. I am so glad that this year I was part of this number.

#8. M&M’s World Store is the heaven on Earth for those of you who love the M&M candies. Opened in 2011, is one of the biggest candy stores in the world. Here you can find a large variety of M&M candies. Some of them you cannot find in the usual stores. You can buy toys, mugs, plates, decorations, Christmas ornaments, T-shirts, pajamas, accessories, football/tennis/basketball gadgets, and many others, all M&M characters in different colors. This is the heaven on Earth for all children out there, and the enemy of the diets.

IMG_7084IMG_7085IMG_7087

IMG_7186

#9. China Town is China gone small. In this neighborhood, you can find restaurants, souvenirs, refreshments, and customs 100% Chinese. The smell on these streets was due to the Chinese ingredients and I enjoyed every minute of it, and I ate everything with my girls.

[RO]                                                                                                                                        [EN]

#1. “Nu reusesc sa imi iau toate zilele de concediu anul asta! N-am timp!” Un adevarat “ducaret” isi face timp!

#2. “Wow, arata bine in poze, insa pare a fi un loc periculos.” Nu trebuie sa fie o problema siguranta personala, nu?

#3. “Ori calatoresc la clasa intai, ori deloc!” Off, doar nu te-ai nascut in puf, nu?

#4. “Sunt atat de nemultumit… Vreau sa vorbesc cu managerul dvs?” In principiu, nu lasi nimic sa iti strice buna dispozitie, nici macar o furculita murdara. Yachs!

#5. “Am obosit de atata mers pe jos!”

#6. “Nah, nu prea as vrea sa incerc sushi. Sunt convins ca nu mi-ar placea.” Cineva dornic de experiente noi incearca lucruri noi, mancaruri noi… macar din pura curiozitate.

#7. “Wow, e poza perfecta pentru profilul de Facebook!” Un calator veritabil nu face poze doar pentru a da bine pe Facebook, ci pentru amintirile sale, albumele personale.

#8. “Daca nu putem fuma, de ce sa ne mai pornim spre Amsterdam?” Really? Chiar nu gasesti si altceva de facut?

youth has no age_travel quotes_closer to fashion blog Adriana Vieriu

#9. “Bere calda? Cine bea bere calda?”

#10. “Nu, nu prea vreau sa vizitez Franta. E un cliseu!” Gandeste dincolo de prejudecati! E o tara extraordinar de frumoasa si atipica in felul ei. Merita!

#11. “Off, nimeni din tara asta nu vorbeste engleza?” Chiar trebuie sa fii unul din ciudatii aia care merg in tari straine si pretind ca cei de acolo il asteapta cu engleza pusa pe masa?! Nu, tu esti strain in tara lor! Fii tu maleabil! Fii tu cel care face compromisuri!

#12. “India e o tara cam murdara! Nu ma merg acolo niciodata!” Nu e vorba despre curatenie sau mizerie! Este vorba despre faptul ca ai vizitat o tara noua, cu alte obiceiuri, alte povesti, alta istorie. Daca pentru tine e mizerie, nu inseamna ca e adevarat!

#13. “America! America! America!” Off, mai sunt si alte locuri frumoase in lumea asta!

#14. “Voi astepta momentul potrivit pentru a calatori! Poate la batranete sau poate cand o sa am bani gramada!” Cred ca sunt cateva lucruri in viata care trebuie facute musai la timpul lor. A calatori nu este unul dintre ele.

#15. “Mi-e cam lene sa merg la drum lung!”

VOI CE SUGESTII AVETI PENTRU CONTINUARE ARTICOLULUI?

http://www.closertofashion.com/40-lucruri-pe-care-un-adevarat-ducaret-nu-le-ar-spune-niciodata/

#1. “I can’t take all of my days off this year! I don’t really have the time!” A real “traveller” makes time!

#2. “Wow, it looks good, but it seems like a dangerous place.” Personal safety shouldn’t be a problem for you, right?

#3. “It’s first class, or no class!” Off, it’s not like you were born rich, right?

#4. “I am so unhappy… I want to talk to your manager?” Basically, you don’t let anything to ruin your mood, not even a dirty fork. Yachs!

#5. “I am getting tired of all that walking!”

#6. “Nah, I don’t want to try the sushi. I’m sure that I won’t like it.” Someone who is willing to do what it takes to experience new things, to try something different, to try new dishes… won’t say that! At least out of curiosity.

#7. “Wow, it’s the perfect picture for my Facebook profile” A real traveler won’t take pictures for his Facebook page, but he will for his memories and his personal albums.

#8. “If we can’t smoke something, what’s the point in visiting Amsterdam?” Really? You can’t think of something else to do besides that?

good girls go to heaven bad girls go to london_travel quotes_closer tofashion blog_Adriana Vieriu

#9. “Warm beer? Who drinks warm beer?”

#10. “No, I don’t really want to visit France. It’s such a cliche!” Think outside the box! It’s a beautiful country! I promise it will worth it!

#11. “Off, nobody in this country speaks English?” Do you really have to be one of those freaks that travel to foreign countries and pretend to speak English at all times?! No, you are the stranger! Be malleable! You have to be the one that compromises!

#12. “India it’s such a dirty country! I won’t visit it again!” It’s not about the dirt! It’s not even about the clean stuff! It’s about the fact that you visited a new country with different customs, stories and history. It may be a mess for you but that doesn’t mean you are right!

#13. “America! America! America!” Come on, there are lots of beautiful places out there!

#14. “I want to wait for the perfect time to travel! Maybe when I am old, maybe when I have lots of money!” I think there are some things in life that you have to do on time. Travelling is not one of them.

#15. “It’s boring to walk around that long!”

I definitely have a vibe! It’s called SWEDISH HOUSE MAFIA! #SHM


In luna septembrie 2012, Swedish House Mafia a anuntat datele oficiale ale concertelor din One Last Tour, un ultim turneu sustinut in formula Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso si Axwell. Astfel, alaturi de Dubai, Delhi, Stockholm, Copenhaga, Praga, Antwerp, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Paris, Moscova, Lisabona, Kuala Lumpur, Cape Town, Mexico City, New York, Montreal, Chicago, L.A., Miami, Toronto…iata ca se afla si Bucuresti.

Vineri, 14 decembrie 2012, trio-ul a mixat pentru prima si ultima oara in Romania, sub titulatura SHM. Marele eveniment a avut loc incepand cu orele 22:00 la Romexpo – Pavilionul Central din Bucuresti. Artistii suedezi au impresionat prin show-ul complex din care nu au lipsit piesele lor binecunoscute si mixuri ce au agitat publicul din toate directiile, jocurile de lumini surprinzatoare si vizualele absolut spectaculoase.

Evenimentul organizat de The Mission a fost deschis de Greeg si Onuc, 2 DJ de la Pro FM care au mixat si in deschiderea Sensation “Ocean of White 2013” de la Bucuresti. Apoi, a urmat Arty – DJ rus de muzica trance si ocupantul locului 23 in Top 100 al DJ Mag. By the way, a fost un warm-up senzational!

DA! A fost imbulzeala! Au fost nebuni care se manifestau in cele mai caudate maniere! A fost coada la bar! Au cazut doze de energizant pe jos si totul a devenit lipicios! Mi-au varsat bautura pe par, pe bluza, pe blugi! Am fost arsa cu tigara pe mana! Am primit coate in spate! Si alte cate si mai cate! DAR NIMIC DIN TOATE ASTEA NU A CONTAT! PENTRU CA ERAM LA UN CONCERT CU 3 NUME MARI DIN INDUSTRIA MUZICII ELECTRONICE! #NothingBeatsThat

In jurul orei 01:30, cortina a cazut si suedezii au aparut in lumina reflectoarelor si au facut un show captivant de (doar) doua ore. For me, it’s never enough!

Concertul efectiv ul a inceput cu “We Come, We Rave, We Love” si “Greyhound“, iar pana la 03:30 a fost o intreaga nebunie! Setul lor a fost dominat de productii marca Axwell, Steve Angello si Sebastian Ingrosso, dar si de track-uri ale label-urilor fiecaruia – Axtone, Size si Refune. Printre acestea: “Miami 2 Ibiza” (feat. Tinie Tempah), “Save The World” (feat. John Martin), “Don’t You Worry Child” – VEZI VIDEO (feat. John Martin), Leave the world behind”, “Antidote”, “Until now”, “In my mind”, “In the air”. Toate astea sunt pe #repeat la mine in masina inca de atunci!

Lasere, lumini, confetti si vizualuri proiectate in permanenta pe scena aproape in totalitate acoperita de leduri au facut ca cele doua ore de show sa fie de-a dreptul dementiale! Am dansat fara incetare datorita botinelor comode pe care am fost inspirata sa le incalt. Show-ul s-a incheiat pe ritmurile piesei mele favorite – “Don’t You Worry Child” si in aplauzele miilor de fani care tipau cot la cot cu mine sa nu plece. La final, au lasat un mesaj sugestiv: VOI ATI VENIT, NE-ATI VRUT, NE-A PLACUT! VA MULTUMIM!

Simply WOW! Simply Swediiiiiiish! Ce-ar fi Tomorrowland sau Untold Festival fara ei?! Dar ajung si acolo!

In September 2012, Swedish House Mafia announced the dates for their farewell tour appropriately named “One Last Tour”, the final tour together: Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso si Axwell. Along with Dubai, Delhi, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Prague, Antwerp, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Paris, Moscow, Lisbon, Kuala Lumpur, Cape Town, Mexico City, New York, Montreal, Chicago, L.A., Miami, Toronto… there it was! Bucharest.

Friday, the 14-th of December 2012, the trio played for the first and the last time in Romania, under the name SHM. The big event took place at Romexpo, Bucharest, starting at 10:00 PM. The Swedish artists had a complex show in which the tracks that made them famous never missed. They agitated the crowd in different ways, they had blinding lights and visual effects.

The event was organized by The Mission. The show was opened by Greeg and Onuc, the Pro FM DJ-s that mixed even at Sensation “Ocean of White” 2013 in Bucharest. Then, there was another premiere: Arty – the Russian DJ, who plays trance music. He is the 23-rd DJ in Top 100 of The DJ Mag. By the way, it was an insane warm-up!

YES! It was crowded! There were many odd people! It was crowded at the bar! There were lots of energy drinks on the floor and that got us a sticky floor! They spilled their drinks on my hair, my shirt, the jeans! I got my hands burned with cigarettes! They pushed me around! And so on! BUT NONE OF THESE MATTERED! ALL BECAUSE I WAS AT THE CONCERT WITH 3 OF THE BIGGEST NAMES IN THE ELECTRONIC MUSIC INDUSTRY! #NothingBeatsThat

Around 01:30 AM, the curtain fell and they came into the flashing lights giving us quite a show of (only) two hours. For me, it’s never enough!

The concert began with “We Come, We Rave, We Love” and “Greyhound“ and until 03:30 AM it was completely insane! Their playlist had songs by Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso, but also tracks of their labels – Axtone, Size si Refune. Among these: “Miami 2 Ibiza” (feat. Tinie Tempah), “Save The World” (feat. John Martin), “Don’t You Worry Child” (feat. John Martin), Leave the world behind”, “Antidote”, “Until now”, “In my mind”, “In the air”. All of these are #onrepeat in my car ever since!

Lasers, lights, confetti and visuals projected on stage made the show exquisite! I danced like a maniac because I had the most comfy boots ever. The show ended with my favorite track – “Don’t You Worry Child” in the noise of the fans who shouted BIS. In the end, they left on the back screen the message: YOU CAME, YOU RAVED, WE LOVED IT! THANK YOU!

Simply WOW! Simply Swediiiiiiish! What would Tomorrowland or Untold Festival be without them?! But I’ll get back to you with that SOON!

[RO]                                                                                                                                                    [EN]

Drept sa va spun, primul lucru pe care il fac atunci cand e vorba despre organizarea unui sejur/city-break este sa caut biletele de avion. De putine ori iau in considerare sa merg in tara, din simplul motiv al serviciilor dezamagitoare pe care le-am primit. Desi consider ca avem o tara frumoasa, serviciile lasa de dorit, prin urmare, acestea vin ca nuca in perete in cele cateva zile pe care ajungi sa le platesti mai mult decat daca ai pleca din tara.

Insa, croaziera din Delta Dunarii a fost o experienta extraordinara din nenumarate puncte de vedere. Am avut deosebita placere sa ajung sa o vizitez datorita teambuilding-ului organizat de compania la care lucrez. Peisajele sunt de-a dreptul mirifice, m-am relaxat total timp de 3 zile la bordul unui hotel plutitor ce aluneca usor pe canalele marginite de stuful galben si nuferi, printre sutele de pasari sosite.

Totul a inceput cu “Welcome on Board” intr-o zi perfecta de toamna, mai exact in luna octombrie 2014, la bordul Hotelului Plutitor SERANO****!

Acesta este dotat cu trei punti: pe prima punte sunt dispuse camerele, pe a doua punte restaurantul, terasa acoperita si Estrada pentru programe artistice; puntea a treia este o terasa deschisa dotata cu jacuzzi si sezlong-uri pentru peisagistica si plaja.

REPET: JACUZZI! Nothing better than that!

Croaziera a constat in traversarea bratului Sulina in aproximativ 24 ore de mars. Am plecat din Portul Tulcea, am navigat in aval pana pe Bratul Sulina, Crisan – oras Sulina – Dunarea Veche – Lacul Trei Iezere – Mila 23 – Lacul Fortuna (incredibil de frumos) – navigat in amonte Brat Tulcea. In tot acest timp, vasul s-a miscat intr-un ritm lent, astfel incat sa nu ti se faca rau, sa poti servi masa in conditii corespunzatoare. Ce-i drept si vremea a tinut cu noi, intrucat aceste ore de mars variaza in functie de conditiile climatice si hidrologice.

Bucataria a fost specifica – cu meniuri preparate din peste (ciorbe, saramura, icre, stiuca umpluta, crap la protap, morun s.a)… totul (aproape totul) se observa in fotografiile pe care le-am facut inainte sa se apuce colegii mei de devorat.

Trebuie sa va marturisesc faptul ca mancarea a fost absolut delicioasa, iar personalul a fost de 5 stele+. M-am asteptat sa ma satur de gustul de peste in cele 3 zile, insa nu a fost asa. Oricum, dupa tot ce am mancat acolo, orice preparat din peste mancat ulterior palea in fata acelora. Odata cu prima masa si prima cafea, cu totii ne-am reincarcat bateriile dupa un drum lung (masina+bac cu punct de plecare din Bacau) si am facut karaoke, am dansat, am ras intr-una, am facut fotografii, am jucat remi… toate acestea fiind asezonate cu “licoarea zeilor” – VINUL!

Zilele urmatoare am avut activitati specifice: am facut cu totii un bors de peste intr-o oala imensa, am avut petrecere cu barbecue si foc de tabara, am vizitat Lacul Fortuna in ambarcatiuni cu motor, au fost veritabile partide de pescuit intre colegii care au venit pregatiti, am servit cafeaua pe langa jacuzzi (in apararea mea, n-aveam constumul de baie la mine) si… birdwatching.

Asadar, am putut repera califarul alb, cormoranii, dumbraveanca, egretele, pelicanii, pescarusii cu capul negru, rata cu capul negru si rata pestrita. Sa fiu cinstita, nu ma pricep sa identific speciile pe care tocmai vi le-am spus, insa m-au ajutat colegele mele.

Mare mi-a fost dezamagirea cand a venit ora de plecare, insa cu siguranta vom merge si anul acesta, datorita impresiilor bune cu care am plecat de acolo! Sper ca v-am convins intr-un fel sau altul sa vizitati frumusetile Deltei Dunarii, cu prima ocazie. Cei dintre voi care ma cunosc, stiu ca nu as recomanda niciodata un loc/restaurant/hotel care nu mi-a placut.

PS: THEY HAD ME AT <JACUZZI>!

To be honest, the first thing I tend to do when I am in the mood of a city break is to book a flight to a destination abroad. I don’t really want to go here, because I’ve had so many bad experiences regarding the tourism services, that I don’t want to risk anymore. Although I believe that we have a beautiful country, the hospitality is poor, and you tend to pay a lot more than abroad.

But, the Danube Delta cruise was an amazing experience. I had the thrill to visit it, due to a team building with the company where I work. The landscapes are breathtaking, I got away for 3 whole days on board of a floating hotel.

Everything started with “Welcome on Board” on a perfect day of fall; to be exact, in October 2014, on board of The SERANO**** Hotel!

This floating hotel has 3 decks: on the first deck there were the rooms, on the second deck there were the restaurant, the terrace and the outside deck; on the third deck there were a Jacuzzi and some lounge chairs for landscape and sun bathe.

I REPEAT: A JACUZZI! Nothing better than that!

The cruise took 24 hours across Sulina. We started from The Tulcea Port, we sailed downstream on Sulina, Crisan – Sulina town – The Old Dunube – The 3 Iezers Lake – Mile no. 23 – The Fortuna Lake (very beautiful) – we sailed upstream on Tulcea. Meanwhile, the ship sailed slowly, so that you could eat properly. The weather was perfect, that’s why we sailed through the perfect climate.

The dishes had a main ingredient: fish (soups, brine, caviar, stuffed pike, sturgeon, among others)… you can see everything (almost everything) in the photos below.

I have to admit: the food was delicious and the staff behaved flawlessly. After those dishes, every cooked fish wasn’t that perfect because they do it better than anyone. After a long journey (by car from Bacau, by ferry), we had lunch and a coffee on the deck. Afterwards, we were ready to party: we did karaoke, we danced around, we laughed, we took pictures back and forth, we played lots of games… everything was better drinking WINE #myfavourite!

The following days, we had lots of activities: we made a big pot of soup for everyone on the boat, we had a barbeque in the nature with a campfire, we visited the Fortuna Lake on a motorboat, my colleagues went fishing, we served the coffee near the Jacuzzi (in my defense, I didn’t bring my swimsuit) and… birdwatching.

Therefore, I saw shelducks, cormorants, egrets, pelicans, seagulls, black ducks and many others. To be honest, I don’t really know them well, but I had some help in describing them here – my colleagues made me do it!

I was disappointed when we had to leave, but, for sure, we will come back this year, because we had a good time! I really hope that I convinced some of you to go visit the Danube Delta, the first chance you get. Those of you who know me personally, know that I wouldn’t recommend a place/restaurant/hotel that I didn’t enjoy.

“Don’t let go

Never give up,

It’s such a WONDERFUL LIFE!”

HAPPINESS (2010) & EXILE (2013) sunt niste albume GENIALE! Si o spun la modul cel mai serios! Fiecare melodie ocupa un loc aparte in mintea si inima mea! De regula, dintr-un album de 12 melodii, daca ajungi sa adori 6 melodii e bine, insa la Hurts nu e cazul! Toate imi plac si toate le ascult cu drag in masina, la sala, la birou, oriunde apuc 3 minute consecutive!

Asadar, Hurts a revenit pentru a treia oara in concert in Romania, la Bucuresti, la Romexpo. Concertul din 11 octombrie 2013 a facut parte din “The Exile Tour”. A fost o buna perioada in care s-a tot vorbit despre Theo Hutchcraft si Adam Anderson, membrii formatiei, motiv pentru care ne-au onorat cu prezenta si in Fratelli Studio (Bucuresti, 2011) si Summer Well (Domeniul Stirbei, Buftea, 2012). 2013 a fost anul meu!

In deschidere, au cantat cei de la trupa YellLow, de care, sincera sa fiu, nu auzisem pana atunci. Un ritm electro-pop mi-a captat atentia pe cand eram la bar (hihi) si chiar am recunoscut beat-ul melodiilor Crimson” si Scream”.

Au urmat baietii de la Grimus, o trupa care a cantat in deschiderea unor concerte cu nume mari, precum Placebo (2012) sau Red Hot Chilli Peppers (2012). Piesa de final, High a adus-o in prim plan pe Laura Cosoi, protagonista videoclipului care a rulat pentru prima oara pe ecranele din Romexpo.

La exact 21:30, a inceput nebunia! A SE NOTA – N E B U N I A! Cei doi au intrat pe scena alaturi de ceilalti instrumentisti, concertul efectiv incepand pe ritmurile melodiei Exile, nume ce da si titlul ultimului album lansat. Daca stiti melodia, va puteti da seama cam ce energie si ce panica si-a luat mai toata lumea. “Exile” este o declaratie de maturitate, ingloband corelatii despre viata, moarte, fapte si motive existentiale, deci TOTUL IN DOAR UN CUVANT.

Direct in vene mi s-a dus ritmul piesei, lucru pe care energizantul nu a fost capabil sa-l faca. Theo a fost energic, iar Adam a avut o prezenta eleganta si tacuta. Baietii au un stil vestimentar de efect, prin simplitate si nimic mai mult. De regula, tinutele lor sunt simple:

  1. Camasa alba si pantaloni negri eleganti (Theo) + camasa alba cu manecile suflecate, pantaloni negri si bretele (Adam).
  2. Maleta neagra, sacou elegant negru si pantaloni negri (Theo) + maleta neagra, vesta neagra si pantaloni negri (Adam).
  3. Parul si-l aranjeaza in cateva minute, la un un frizer marocan din Manchester, UK pentru doar 5 lire. Si sunt mandri de asta!

Dupa cum observati, culorile preferate de ei sunt albul si negrul in diferite combinatii. Nici de aceasta data, cei doi nu au facut exceptie: Adam a avut o tinuta ALL BLACK + trench (sinistru, dar sexy), Theo – camasa alba, vesta neagra, sacou negru + o capa (impunatoare si misterioasa). Scena arata de-a dreptul dramatic, cu numele trupei inscriptionat pe un fundal negru gigantic. Vocea angelica a lui Theo a fost muuuuuult mai buna decat pe CD sau pe YouTube, iar talentul lui Adam de a canta la pian sau la chitara este impresionant.

BUT IT GETS BETTER! Show-ul de lumini violent a culminat cu momentul in care Theo a distrus (#sexy) stativul pentru microfon pe un pasaj instrumental rock din mijlocul unei balade. Lumea a ramas masca, insa momentul a fost pe cat de socant, pe atat de pasional si atractiv, mai ales pentru fetele din primul rand care si-au rupt corzile vocale.

BETTER AND BETTER! Solistul a purtat in jurul gatului tricolorul tarii si a interpretat piesa Stay”, de care publicul nu se mai satura si au cerut bis! Mai toata lumea a plans la piesa asta, inclusiv sora mea Gabriela (Sorry sis, I had to say it!). Versurile in sine te loveau direct in inima.

BETTER THAN LOVE IS … ACTUAL LOVE! Pe parcursul intregii seri, carismaticul Theo a oferit publicului numerosi trandafiri albi, familiari deja in cadrul concertelor Hurts si a multumit publicului in limba romana in repetate randuri.

THE PLAYLIST:Wonderful Life“, “Illuminated”, Stay, “Miracle, Somebody to die for, Sandman, BlindThe Road, “Blood, Tears and Gold, Silver Lining, Unspoken” si Sunday (videoclip filmat in Romania), “Better than love (videoclip filmat in Romania, in care apare si Laura Cosoi) si muuulte altele.

<TRUE STORY> Theo si Adam se intalnesc intr-un club de noapte din Manchester in 2005. In timpul acelei nopți, beti fiind, ei ajung sa se cunoasca si sa vorbeasca despre muzica, realizand ca au lucruri in comun. Prin urmare, decid sa formeze o trupa, iar eu sunt fericita pentru asta! Melodiile lor apartin genului muzical synthpop si sunt intense, emblematice, impresionante, iar videoclipurile sunt atat de bine gandite incat, cand crezi ca i-ai dat de capat, apare un element care te duce in cealalta directie. Oricum, viitoarele melodii necesita o noua “depresie” pentru cei doi, pentru a iesi mai geniale ca cele scoase pana acum. Zic eu!

“Another second in the SUNSHINE,

A decade in the dark taking part in a DREAM.

Have you forgotten what she looks like?

Or do you only SEE what you want to BELIEVE?”


HAPPINESS (2010) & EXILE (2013) are two BRILLIANT music albums! And I really mean it! Each and every song has a special place in my mind and heart! Usually, out of 12 songs from a music album, you don’t really like more than 6 of them, but with Hurts is not the case! I love them all and I take advantage of every 3 minutes in a row, just to listen their songs: in my car, at the gym, in the office!

Therefore, Hurts came back in Romania for the third time, at Romexpo, Bucharest. The concert was scheduled on October 11th, 2013 and Romania was one of the list of the countries where they had “The Exile Tour”. The band has unlimited number of fans, that’s why Theo Hutchcraft and Adam Anderson came in Fratelli Studio (Bucharest, 2011) and in the line-up of Summer Well (Buftea, 2012). 2013 was my year of glory!

The YellLow Band performed at the opening of Hurts, a band I’ve never heard of until then. An electro-pop rhythm caught my attention while I was at the bar (hihi) and I even remembered the beat of Crimson” and Scream”.

Afterwards, Grimus, the band that opened the concerts of famous artists like Placebo (2012) or Red Hot Chilli Peppers (2012) performed for a full hour before Hurts hit the stage. The final song, High brought into the light the beautiful actress Laura Cosoi, the leading role from the video.

At 09:00 PM sharp, the madness began! PLEASE NOTE – M A D N E S S! The two members of the band performed along with the other instrumentalists. The show started with the song Exile, the name of their album. If you remember the specific song, you can even imagine the energy of the crowd. “Exile” is a statement of maturity, where life, death and certain feelings are all-in-one. EVERYTHING IN JUST ONE WORD!

The rhythm of the song got into my veins, and not even the energy drink could do that. Theo was energetic, and Adam had an elegant and quiet figure, as usual. The boys have a particular style, based on simplicity and nothing more. Usually, their outfits are quite simple:

  1. White shirt and black elegant pants (Theo) + white shirt with the sleeves rolled up, black pants and suspenders (Adam).
  2. Black turtleneck, black elegant blazer and black pants (Theo) + black turtleneck, black vest and black pants (Adam).
  3. A Moroccan hairstylist fixes their hair before every show. He is from Manchester, UK and he does it for only 5 pounds. And they are proud of it!

As you already noticed, their favorite colors are black and white, in different combinations. This time was exactly the same! Adam had an outfit ALL BLACK + a trench (sinister, but sexy), Theo – white shirt, black vest, black blazer + a cape (impressive and mysterious). The stage was dramatic, with the name of the band imprinted on the giant black background. Theo’s voice was waaaaaay better than on CD or YouTube, and Adam’s talent playing the piano and the guitar was outstanding.

BUT IT GETS BETTER! The lighting show was pretty violent and I loved it! At some point, Theo got into the mood and “destroyed” (#sexy) the microphone stand on an instrumental rock song. The crowd was amazed, and the moment was as shocking as it can get, also passionate and hot, especially for the girls in the first row who screamed louder than anyone there.

BETTER AND BETTER! Theo had around his neck our flag and performed the song Stay. The crowd wanted more, shouting “one more time” and they even cried on this song, including my sister Gabriela (Sorry sis, I had to say it!). The lyrics were more powerful than never!

BETTER THAN LOVE IS … ACTUAL LOVE! The whole show, Theo threw white roses in the crowd and expressed his gratitude to the audience in our language.

THE PLAYLIST:Wonderful Life“, “Illuminated”, Stay, “Miracle, Somebody to die for, Sandman, BlindThe Road, “Blood, Tears and Gold, Silver Lining, Unspoken” si Sunday (video filmed in Romania), “Better than love (video filmed in Romania, where the star is the actress Laura Cosoi).

<TRUE STORY> Theo and Adam met in 2005 in a nightclub in Manchester. During that night, while they were drunk, they got to know each other and they started to talk about music. Therefore, they decided to form the band Hurts, and I am truly happy for that! Their songs belong to a specific type of music called synthpop and they are intense, impressive, quite charming, and the videos are emotional and smart, from a different point of view, not the one you can predict! Either way, the future songs need a new “depression”, just to be more brilliant than the ones they already have. As I would say!

15 IUNIE – 01 OCTOMBRIE 2011: CEA MAI NEBUNA VARA PE CARE AM AVUT-O!

Va jur ca nici nu stiu cu ce sa incep! Cu faptul ca a fost cea mai nebuna experienta din toate cate am avut pana acum? Ca a reprezentat tocmai trecerea dintre copilarie si maturitate? Ca am cunoscut atatea nationalitati de oameni? Ca am trecut foarte rapid de la regretul ca am ajuns acolo, pana la regretul ca nu am mai stat? Ca am scapat teafara ca prin urechile acului in situatii dificile, cum nici n-am crezut ca ajung? Ca am cunoscut oameni minunati cu care am legat o prietenie vesnica? Ca am vizitat frumoasele meleaguri grecesti si am cunoscut grecii cu bune si cu rele? Ca am pierdut 5 nopti pe saptamana din 7 in club? Ca atmosfera era atat de faina incat nu conta ca a doua zi incepeam tura la 07:00? Ca n-am cheltuit un sfant pe nici o bautura in oras?

GREU!

Creta este cunoscuta pentru istoria ei complexa, acele locuri “vorbesc” si azi despre timpurile de odinioara. Fiind cea mai mare insula greceasca, recunosc faptul ca sunt bucuroasa ca am ajuns sa o vad pe indelete, timp de 3 luni si jumatate (atat frumusetea din pliantele agentiilor de turism, cat si partea intunecata a ei).

ATENA, MALIA, CHANIA, RETHYMNO, HERAKLION, HERSONISSOS, AGIOS NIKOLAOS, IERAPETRA, SITIA…you name it! Been there, done that! (foto Crete Travel). Imbracamintea a fost lejera, reprezentata prin zeci de rochite si fuste cu tricouri lejere si accesorii statement, cu sandalute romane pe timp de zi si stiletto seara in club. Am avut vreo 7 costume de baie de diferite culori si o palarie chic care sa ma protejeze de razele puternice.

#myfavourite: RETHYMNO (este un oras atat de superb, incat m-as muta oricand acolo), HERSONISSOS (plaja perfecta, cluburile vibrante, in special NEW YORK DAY&NIGHT BEACH CLUB si STAR BEACH), HERAKLION (portul in care am simtit ca mi se rupe inima cand m-am urcat in feribot, la plecare), ATENA (portul in care am simtit teama de necunoscut, la sosire), CHANIA (portul + orasul vechi – #superbe, preturile piperate de la tavernele lor – #notthatmuch), AGIOS NIKOLAOS (ziua perfecta petrecuta alaturi de prietena mea, Monica cu ocazia aniversarii ei), IERAPETRA & SITIA (privelisti extraordinare). Le-am numit pe toate, nu-i asa?

Initial, am aplicat pentru un job in America prin programul pentru studenti “Work&Travel”, insa, spre fericirea mea nu am mai ajuns acolo. In schimb, banii destinati pentru State au fost directionati spre un job de ajutor de ospatar in Grecia, Insula Creta, Malia la Hotelul Malia Bay Hotel&Bungalows **** Jobul s-a dovedit a fi oribil la inceput, insa pofta vine mancand si a inceput sa imi placa! Nicicum pentru jobul in sine, ci pentru oamenii cu care am lucrat, atat studentii romani si unguri veniti prin acelasi program, cat si colegii de diferite nationalitati pe care i-am cunoscut in hotel. Ce-i drept, Directorul General, Maitre si Head Receptionist erau groaznic de severi! Ganditi-va la o severitate stupida, asupra unor servetele de masa sau a unui colt de scaun, deci, prostesc de severi!

Desi agentia mi-a spus ca ma va astepta cineva la sosire, nu a fost asa! Cu putinii centi de pe telefon, am sunat la receptia hotelului si le-am spus cine sunt si ce caut acolo. Acestia habar nu aveau de mine si de ce trebuia sa fac acolo. Intr-un final, lucrurile s-au lamurit si au trimis un microbuz cu un sofer grec, batran, ciudat care nu stia o boaba de engleza. Putea fi oricine, iar eu m-am urcat in microbuzul lui pe motiv ca mi-a spus “Adriana? Malia Bay?” Yes, please!

Dupa ce am facut cunostinta cu cerintele postului, m-au condus intr-o camera cu 4 paturi si o baie, destul de draguta, vis-à-vis de hotel. In acea seara, am facut cunostinta cu ceilalti colegi veniti prin acelasi program: formatia de animatori (5 italieni), ajutorul de bucatar (Janos-Romania), ajutorii de ospatari (David-Romania, Tomas-Lituania), bucatarii si ajutorii de bucatari greci (Buna, Panagiotis!)  si… CRISTINA & MONICA! Impreuna, am format The Powerpuff Girls J Glumesc! Stand in aceeasi camera, traind emotiile de inceput, parcurs si sfarsit, fiind pe acelasi job si plangandu-ne impreuna de tot ce se intampla in restaurant, ne-am apropiat mult si am devenit prietene in toata regula pana in ziua de astazi! Este unul din lucrurile pentru care sunt recunoscatoare pentru experienta in Grecia.

Fiind o persoana joviala, vorbitoare de limba italiana, engleza si franceza, mereu zambitoare, Directorul General a hotarat sa ma mute luna august la Pool Bar. Aici i-am cunoscut pe Zacharias (Grecia), Nikos (Grecia) si Jane (Germania) care m-au invatat cum sa prepar cocktail-uri, cum sa fac turistii sa-si cheltuie banii pe alte bauturi decat cele in regim de all-inclusive (OUZO, RAKI, vin alb, vin rosu).

MALIA este “Ibiza Greciei”. Centrul orasului prinde viata noaptea prin laserele cluburilor de noapte, tavernele deschise non-stop, pool bar-urilor si magazinelor de suveniruri/haine si nimicuri. Gaseai absolut orice pe strazile acestui oras, absolut orice! Daca voiai sa iti faci un tatuaj la 5 dimineata, daca voiai ceasuri Tiffany&Co (false, desigur), daca voiai suveniruri excentrice, prajituri specifice, pita gyros direct de la sursa, sa inchiriezi scutere, sa te relaxezi intr-un hamac, sa mananci un cheeseburger la McDonald’s in plina noapte, dupa care sa te intorci in club (Apollo, Malibu, Safari Club, Bar One, Cloud 9, Zig Zag, Candy Club s.a.), petreceri cu spuma, daca voiai sa dansezi doar muzica RnB, voiai muzica comerciala, voiai doar muzica Rock, le voiai combinate, sau sa vezi linistit meciul alaturi de prieteni la o bere…you name it! In Malia le gaseai toate! Si impreuna si separat!

Experienta in Grecia a fost minunata din toate punctele de vedere! Am vazut si partea nevazuta a servirii all inclusive, am cunoscut diverse tipologii de oameni (turistii si staff-ul), am invatat cum sa ma descurc in diverse situatii dificile la locul de munca, am simtit pe propria piele ce greu trebuie sa muncesti pentru a livra acel hotel de 4 stele promis turistilor.

Recomand experienta tuturor studentilor care au acces la programul Work&Travel!




15th OF JUNE – 01st of OCTOBER 2011: THE CRAZIEST SUMMER I’VE EVER HAD!

I swear I do not even know where to start! With the fact that it was the most intense experience of them all?! That it was the beginning of the maturity? That I met all those different nationalities? That I switched from the regret of being there to the regret that I left? That I got out of all those horrible situations, in which I never thought I would get into? That I met some beautiful people and we became friends for a long time? That I visited all that I could and I met Greek people with the good and the bad? That I used to party 5 nights in a row, out of 7 per week? That the atmosphere was insane that I didn’t care that the next day my shift would start at 7 o’clock? That I haven’t spent a dime on a drink while I was there?

TOUGH ONE!

Crete Island is known for the complex history, those places “talk” even today about those good old times. Being the biggest Greek island, I admit that I got lucky to visit it all, for 3 and a half month (the beautiful places described on those travel agency’s flyers, but also the darkest parts of it).

ATHENS, MALIA, CHANIA, RETHYMNO, IRAKLIO, HERSONISSOS, AGIOS NIKOLAOS, IERAPETRA, SITIA…you name it! Been there, done that! (foto Crete Travel). I wore only casual clothing: dozens of casual and sexy dresses, a bunch of skirts and casual t-shirts with statement jewelry, roman sandals during the day and stiletto during the night. I had with me 7 different swimsuits and a chic hat to protect me from the sun.

#myfavourites: RETHYMNO (is a beautiful city and I wouldn’t hesitate in moving there anytime), HERSONISSOS (the perfect beach, the vibrant night clubs, especially NEW YORK DAY&NIGHT BEACH CLUB and STAR BEACH), HERAKLION (the port where I had my heart broken when I got in the ferry at the departure), ATHENS (the port where I felt fear for the unknown at the arrival), CHANIA (the port + the old city – #beautiful, the high prices at their taverns – #notthatmuch), AGIOS NIKOLAOS (the perfect day spent with my friend, Monica, for her birthday), IERAPETRA & SITIA (beautiful views). I named all of them, right?

Initially, I applied for a job in USA due to the “Work&Travel” Program for Students, but, I never got there. In exchange, the money meant to be for the States, got redirected for a job as waiter’s assistant in Greece, Crete Island, at Malia Bay Hotel&Bungalows **** At the beginning, the job sucked big time, but, in time, I got used to it! Not for the job description, but for the people I worked with: the foreign students (romanian & hungarian) and the colleagues from all over the world. The General Manager, the Maitre and the Head Receptionist were insanely severe! Like the stupidest severity of them all!

Even though the agency told me that there will be someone at the airport to claim me, it wasn’t the case! Therefore, I called at the reception and I told them that I was in the port already, even though I had very few cents on my phone! They had no idea who was I and what I was supposed to do there. Finally, the things have cleared up and they sent a Greek bus driver to take me to the hotel. He couldn’t speak English, but the only thing could say was: “Adriana? Malia Bay?” Yes, please!

After I was told the job description, they checked me into a room with 4 beds and a bathroom, quite nice, across the hotel. That night I met the other colleagues: the animation team (5 italians), the sous-chef (Janos-Romania), the other waiter’s assistants (David-Romania, Tomas-Lithuania), the Greek staff from the kitchen (Hello, Panagiotis! Hello, my little friend!) and… CRISTINA & MONICA! Together, we were The Powerpuff Girls J I’m kidding! We lived under the same roof, we shared so many memories, we had the same job and the same complaints regarding the staff and the restaurant, that we got close enough and we became best friends ever since! This is one of the best things that I will always be grateful for, after the experience in Greece.

Being joyful all the time, an Italian, English and French speaker, the General Manager decided to promote me for a whole month as bar assistant at the Pool Bar. There, I met Zacharias (Greece), Nikos (Greece) and Jane (Germania) who taught me to fix cocktails, how to get the tourists to spend money on real drinks rather than the ones at the all-inclusive (OUZO, RAKI, white wine, red wine).

MALIA is the “Ibiza of Greece”. The center of the town becomes alive at night, due to the clubs, the taverns opened all day and all night, the pool bars, the souvenir shops, the clothing shops and other stuff. You would find absolutely anything on these streets, anything! If you wanted to get a tattoo at 5 AM, if you wanted a Tiffany&Co watch (false, of course), if you wanted to buy eccentric souvenirs, cookies, pita gyros straight from the source, to rent a scooter, to relax into a hammock, to eat a cheeseburger at McDonald’s in the middle of the night, then to go back into the club (Apollo, Malibu, Safari Club, Bar One, Cloud 9, Zig Zag, Candy Club and many more), if you wanted a foam party, if you wanted a RnB Club, to dance on a commercial music or Rock music, if you wanted them combined, or just to watch a sports game with your mates drinking beer…you name it! In Malia you would find them all! Together and separately!

The experience in Greece was wonderful from all points of view! I experienced the seen and the unseen of the all-inclusive, I’ve met all kinds of people (the tourists and the staff), I’ve learnt how to deal with difficult situations at work, I took part of the hard work of the staff to deliver the 4 star hotel that Malia Bay Hotel&Bungalows is meant to be.

I recommend the experience to all the students that have access to the Work&Travel Program!

LOCATIE: ROMEXPO, BUCURESTI

Guetaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Spre fericirea mea, pe lista locatiilor in care artistul isi promova cel mai recent album (la vremea respectiva) – “One Love”, se afla si Romania. Eu am fost prezenta, evident!

Mult asteptatul show a fost deschis in jurul orelor 22:00 de catre DJ Almud si Muzzaik, un warm-up atent ales si binevenit, mai ales, pe fundalul cocktail-urilor si a vizibilitatii sporite de care am beneficiat la SILVER VIP.

Setul a inceput in forta cu Gettin’ Over You si a continuat in acelasi stil pentru doua ore si jumatate, timp in care a mixat nu doar piesele de pe ultimul album “One Love”: MemoriesSexy Bitch sau When Love Takes Over, dar si melodii mai vechi care l-au facut celebru: Love Is Gone sau The World is Mine”.

Guetta nu a exclus din lista nici featuring-urile cu Kelly Rowland (Commander) sau Flo Rida (Club Can’t Handle Me), nici hituri ale altor artisti: I Gotta Feeling (Black Eyed Peas), Smack My Bitch Up(The Prodigy), Hello (Martin Solveig), Around the World (Daft Punk), One (Swedish House Mafia), “Memories” (Kid Cudi) si chiar Rhythm Is A Dancer (SNAP!).

Un moment special a fost anuntarea noului sau single, Who’s That Chick (feat. Rihanna), mixat de Guetta pentru a doua oara la nivel mondial, chiar dupa premiera din Spania de pe 10 octombrie.

Show-ul a fost completat de animatii / versuri din propriile melodii pe ecranul led din spatele sau, de un robot dansator cu o inaltime de 3 metri, care “impusca” persoanele din public cu lasere, imprastia fum si arunca artificii. N E B U N I E!

Concertul s-a incheiat in jurul orelor 03:30, cand Guetta ne-a surprins inca o data cu noul sau single Who’s That Chick, iar apoi distractia s-a mutat in Kristal Glam Club, cu Patrick Bodmer si Philipp Jung, aka M.A.N.D.Y.

Imi pare sincer rau ca nu am facut mai mult fotografii cu outfitul, insa vedeti la finalul articolului ce am purtat!

“All the crazy shit I did tonight,
Those will be the best memories.
I just wanna let it go for the night,
That would be the best therapy for me!”

(David Guetta feat. Kid Cudi, “Memories” – #myfavourite)

STOP: 17-th of October 2010, h 03:30

LOCATION: ROMEXPO, BUCHAREST

Guetaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! To my happiness, on the list of locations where David Guetta was promoting the most recent album (at that time) – “One Love”, Romania was included. Obviously, I was there!

The long-expected show started with the mix of DJ Almud and, around 10:00 PM. The warm-up was carefully selected and welcomed by the crowd, especially after the cocktails and the good view of the SILVER VIP, the ticket I chose for the concert.

The set began  with Gettin’ Over You and continued in the same manner for two and a half hours, in which he put not just the latest songs of his new album “One Love”: MemoriesSexy Bitch or When Love Takes Over, but also the songs that made him famous: Love Is Gone or The World is Mine”.

Guetta included the songs recorded with Kelly Rowland (Commander) or Flo Rida (Club Can’t Handle Me). He also played the hits of other artists: I Gotta Feeling (Black Eyed Peas), Smack My Bitch Up(The Prodigy), Hello (Martin Solveig), Around the World (Daft Punk), One (Swedish House Mafia), “Memories” (Kid Cudi) and even Rhythm Is A Dancer (SNAP!).

A special moment was the announcing of his new single, Who’s That Chick (featuring Rihanna), who was played for the second time worldwide, after the premiere in Spain on October, 10th.

The show had everything: animations / written lyrics on the back screen behind the stage, a 9 feet robot with LEDs all over his costume, who “shoot” the crowd with lasers and tease all of us. He also would spread smoke and throw fireworks. I N S A N E!

The concert ended around 03:30 AM, when Guetta surprised us once more with his new single Who’s That Chick. Then, the crowd went in Kristal Glam Club at the after-party with Patrick Bodmer and Philipp Jung, aka M.A.N.D.Y.

I am sorry that I didn’t take as much photos I should have regarding the outfit, but here’s what I wore:
