Books and cats

Like the last few years, I took up Goodreads challenge to read more books in 2015 (in English and French). One of the recent books that I came across  was Demain, j’arrêt! by Gilles Legardinier.

For a non-native reader, the words are simple, language is fairly easy to follow, and Gilles does an excellent narration from the point of view of Julie (bonus points to him for narrating as a woman). His choice of words did crack me up several times. Sitting on my bedside table is one of his next books – Complètement cramé!

NB: It was the photo of the cat that made me do a double take and add this book to my to-reads list.

Go ahead and sign-up for the Goodreads 2016 reading challenge!

Et c’est parti!

Yet another year goes by.

I’m going to try and give some love to this blog this year.

Some posts, may be, will be in two languages: anglais et français!

Happy new year! Bonne année!


Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
And the dreams that you dreamed of
Once in a lullaby

Somewhere over the rainbow
Blue birds fly
And the dreams that you dreamed of
Dreams really do come true ooh oh

Restaurant review – Pera, Nice

Last saturday, a late lunch was had at Pera, Nice – a small, discreet restaurant serving Lebanese food.

Ezme, Mechouia, Tabbouleh Libanais, and Hummous were particularly excellent.
Very good zucchini fritters. Falafel was average.
Their galettes libanais with ricotta cheese and herbs looked very nice too.

Good value for money too. Should go again!

Tiramisu – check

Another todo item ticked off. Tiramisu has been made. So what if it took longer to find Marsala at Carrefour Antibes than to actually make tiramisu? Pics shall be uploaded tomorrow once it is served. (Right now bites have started to go missing from the container cooling in the fridge)
