This song made my Thursday during this long week. Love! x
I’ve definitely been eating too many chocolates from my advent calendar but because Christmas is in 10 days, I’m beginning to feel the holiday cheer. Enjoy! x
A place for the perfect postcard pictures. In this cool coastal city called Lisbon, it doesn’t matter where you’re standing as there is always something lovely to look at. Starting in the Praça do Comércio, there are loads of restaurants in Baixa. Eventually, one can find a spot to have a SuperBock. Then through the Arco da Rua Augusta, many small shops appear and street performers amuse. Next, the Elevador da Santa Justa takes you all the way up to be on top of the world.
After taking it all in, it’s best to visit take a break in this hot and humid weather. Drinking a Ginjinha, a Portuguese infused ginja berry liqueur is the best way to go. The shop is small and inviting. Just what you need for a refreshment. Of course, this leads to dessert. It’s a must to try pastel de nata, a small staple food from Belém. My best friend, James clearly enjoyed the sweet egg custard tart.
I can still remember his expression as we left the pastry shop. Strolling along Avenida da Liberdade, the amount of nature that encompasses the city is amazing. Soon, Parque Eduardo VII is right there. Take a walk in the park to end the day.

Friday night vibes before the fun begins. Getting in the mood 🙂
Happy times on Friday after visiting Hey! Ho! Let’s Go: The Ramones and The Birth of Punk exhibition at the Queens Museum. I had the pleasure of meeting and discussing the music scene with the former Ramones tour manager, Monte A. Melnick (photo below). Such a magical moment. All photos are my own. Check out the space soon as it closes at the end of July. The hours are Wednesday to Sunday, 11am-5pm.
