Estelea's Blog

French Mum, humanitarian, restless explorer and doer on sabbatical in Cebu (Philippines): one Attila in each arm, I am exploring the “toddlers safe” corners of the region, while trying to keep some room for Me.



Seoul, 2015

Big thanks to Kate of the yummiest Food Blog for the Love/Hate tag!

The rules are simple enough: share 10 things we love and 10 we hate and nominate up to 10 blogs to do the same.

I love the idea of brainstorming on 10 things I love.. Did you notice that when you are thinking of something positive, that makes you smile, you re instantaneously in a good mood, and your environment becomes positive and cheerful? It works the other way round too : if you focus on the negative, then guess what?… your negative thoughts are impregnating everything and everyone around you. So I twisted the rules a little bit..

A glimpse of the things I love:

For all the things I hate, I have a special weapon. Works wonder on hyper conservative, racist, narrow minded and all kind of abusing people.

Glad to share it:


My nominees are 10 bloggers I recently discovered. Would love you to know more about you guys…

    My dearest! What a lovely list of all the things you love! And my compliments for focusing on the things you love and not hate..I agree about keeping things positive to attract positive!
    I enjoyed reading everything you wrote and seeing your photos…The coffee and the cake are divine and I agree! And family, friends, yoga and the word namaste…how lovely life really is! (PS I like the cool circles here on your blog…very trendy!)
    I look forward to reading more about the 10 bloggers you mentioned. Here’s to meeting friends, old and new, on the blogosphere!
    Happy weekend my friend!

      Thanks so much dear Lia 🙂 So happy to share it all with you. Italian coffees are the best, ever, and with dark chocolate.. this is a lethal combination, it makes everything beautiful! This is what I miss most here, real coffee and real chocolate. Not much but so much 😉
      Will bring the cake next time we meet live 😉
      Have a lovely day my dear, and thanks again for stopping by and taking the time to comment, I really appreciate it, so much! XXX
