No need for words

80's movies love them or hate them

Remember the 80's? Remember 80's movies like Ghostbusters, The Goonies, Dirty Dancing, Soulman, American Ninja (haha), Electric Boogaloo to name a view.
I was feeling a bit melancholic so i desided that i am gonna watch all the movies again. Hopefully some will bring back good memories. And i reckon some will seem quit riduculous. Either way.. i will keep you posted on what the verdict is.
My first choice: The Gremlins.

Dope Lyrics

The sweetest thing I've ever known
Was like the kiss on the collarbone
The soft caress of happiness
The way you walk, your style of dress
I wish I didn't get so weak
Ooo, baby, just to hear you speak
Makes me argue just to see
How much you're in love with me
See, like a queen, a queen upon her throne

It was the sweet, sweetest thing I’ve known,
It was the sweet, sweetest thing I’ve known

I get mad when you walk away
So I tell you leave, when I mean stay
Warm as the sun dipped in black
Fingertips on the small of my back
More valuable than all I own
Like your precious, precious, precious, precious baby, dark skin tone

It was the sweet,the sweetest thing I’ve known

It was the...Ah
I try to explain
Ah...but baby, it's in vain

Speaking on my mother's phone
The touch that makes me think I'm grown
Sweet prince of the ghetto
Your kisses taste like amaretto
Intoxicating, oh, so intoxicating
How sad, how sad that all things come to an end
But then again, I'm, I'm not alone


Ah...Sometimes watch you in your sleep
Ah... Excuse me if I get too deep, hey!
Fading Chorus


-Pretend like all I want is my solitude, when a hug is what I need…
-Act like you are less than you really are when you’re the only thing that matters.
-Trick myself into thinking that I’m in control when I live by the clock…
-Push down what is trying to escape from my heart through my mouth.
-Say that I am living just for me, but I’m constantly making lists of my mistakes.
-Make believe that my past plays no role in my present, when it does.
-Tell myself that I can do without you, but I replay every conversation and stolen
moment over and over in my head.
-Hope that you won’t read my mind, but secretly wish that you will…
-Push the snooze button twice, so that I can hold on to my dreams a little while longer

I love Quotes

If you can’t change it, change your attitude.

Masai family rules Amsterdam Marathon

The 25th celebration of the Dam to Dam Marathon last Sunday was a Masai family affair. The siblings Linet and Moses Masai, both from Kenya, came in first. Linet in the ladies run and Moses in the men's. How awesome is that. Even though it was not an official record time, the organization says that Linet put down the fastest time ever with 50 min and 39 seconds on the 19 mile race.
Only thing i can say, is Big UP KENYA.

Pom? Creools Surinaams of Joods

I was having a conversation with my boyfriend today about Suriname food and especially about Suriname most famous dish, POM. He wanted to know to which etnic group the recipe belonged and i remembered something about it being an original Jewish recipe. So i went and googled it.
And the answer is... that is more complicated than it sounds. But i can tell you that there was a Jewish recipe called Sjalot that was originally made with potatoes, that was made similarly like pom. But there was a period in time that potatoes couldn't be imported to Suriname and they went looking for an alternative that came close to the original as possible. So they started using Taya (pomtayer). A local potatoe like vegetable already used by locals and slaves.
