La Molina

I am laughing out loud now. Happiness cannot be bought BUT it costs some monetary items. I am not angry anymore, the PC is now faster after my love added extra RAM. Therefore, in order to enjoy my new 'gift', I am blogging on the recent trip. And I would like to thank Kak Akma and her husband, Jose (a.k.a Abang Kamal), for the treat.

Destination: The top of this mountain, Catalan Coastal Mountain Chain, Pyrenees (based on my hubby's field research activities)

The trip was skiing to La Molina, near the France-Andorra border. We went early morning with their kids whom were more or less as much excited as we were (but we left ours cause we did not know what to expect). Mind ya, SNOW = very COLD .

Senor Nieve!

Fun sledge

Stamping on the snow, Jose, Daniel and Shasha.

I was dragging my feet in the knee-depth snow.

Who says only the petite was struggling? The big one too!

Take a break, but no Kit Kat

My first experience of skiing, even my jacket matches the boot. Wink wink, Emmy!

And I am not the only one, look at Kak Akma. The ladies took it seriously.

The best shot of my husband, smiling and ready

Conclusion 1: I had no idea what to expect on the skiing trip. I even told almost everybody that the trip was going the first and the last one in my life. The reason being is I do not like cold weather. Then, it was not so bad. I like it and expect some more later. I told my husband that starting from this winter, we need to collect some items, such as a proper jackets and boots, not only for us but for the little one too. And he agreed.

Conclusion 2: Adding extra RAM to enhance performance of slow PC works. Thanks to a friend for his advice (and for saving our money too. We are not victims of rushing).

Carnaval is celebrated widely in most European countries. I am not sure what is the purpose though. But on this day, everybody dressed up. For me it is more like a family event. Everybody involves in a parade, with their own theme.

Not left behind, my little town Cerdanyola. Instead of a day, our parade took 2 days. The first day was smaller but the second day was really a celebration.

People danced together like a Bollywood movie

Every schools, organization participated in this parade, like these clown and chicken...

And the McDonald's farm...

Asterix from the elementery school...

The parade also became a platform to express dissapointment by saying "The crisis made me show off my rear"

There the proof!

But the best of all for me, is looking and enjoying the happiness of these cute faces in their own theme and pround to be given such a big responsibility - to involve in the parade itself.

A butterfly and a spider...

Falling Apart....

This is an actual time note.

I am angry, getting really angry easily. Those computers are all the reason being why. It slows, it crashes, it hangs. Madre mia!! It has been a month and my hubby and I are so busy ( but I don´t really sure what are all the business about accept Carnaval and our skiing trip). We received suggestions from friends on how to overcome it.
  • Reformatting - did.
  • Scan disk - did.
  • Defragment - did
  • Replace the RAM - we are surveying the price, so to say in progress
  • Buy a new one - we try not to. Now it it crisis, we have to save, daaaa...
So, help me God!
