Travel ~ 35. Hungry for History in Hungary.

Since I was little girl, I have loved history. Learning about the Austro-Hungarian empire at school, I was inspired to visit Hungary one day. This summer, I managed to fulfill that dream and explore a new area of the world. For a long time, I admired the photographer, Brassaï who embraced European culture and captured the beauty of city streets.  These days, I am doing the same. Enjoy below my shots of beautiful Budapest!

 

Film ~ Hateship Loveship

In this captivating drama, Hateship Loveship, a weird friendship develops over the course of digital pranks. The brilliant Kristen Wiig stars as Johanna, a shy and lost nanny hired to care for Mr. McCauley (Nick Nolte) and his granddaughter, Sabitha (Hailee Steinheld). Despite her extrovert personality, Sabitha holds within repressed emotion from past incidents molding a rebellious spirit. Then her father (Guy Pearce), a recovering dug addict with charming manner relocates to start a new path. The plot follows Sabitha’s game with her friend, (Sami Gayle) in which they create a pseudo-relationship between Johanna and her father with fake emails. In this day, digital communication is the most convenient way to operate but at someone else’s expense for your amusement. How cruel is that? It makes you wonder, how far will people go when they feel as if they have nothing to lose, especially involving technology. In association with IFC Films, the rated R film will be released tomorrow Friday 11 April 2014.

Culture ~ Clubbing Scene

Today’s generation loves to party; the clubbing scene is where it’s happening and it will never die because we live for the thrive.

The most difficult part is getting in, what will happen tonight with that notorious bouncer I wonder…just keep positive energetic vibes.

It’s about the art of entering the venue, making your presence known. After surveying the place, choosing a spot to chill. Then checking out if the drink menu is fun. Trying to find something decent that you can keep drinking all night. Obviously discovering new tunes is a given and hopefully meeting the talent. And of course there’s the meeting new people, that aspect of socializing and networking. It’s always nice to make new acquaintances.

In all the craziness, the hours go by quickly. You lose track of time while wrapped up in this atmosphere of warm body heat and darkness. The thing to remember is, it doesn’t matter where you go but who you are with. You can celebrate nights with good crowds. Some believe that the Meatpack District is dead but I think it’s still very much alive! The following list includes amazing places where the music is always on point for a good time in NYC.
