Visual Kei / J-Rock

The two fashion design students prepared each one their graduation, by creating a line of clothes, both of them inspired by the Visual Kei style, J-Rock and Japanese culture.

Laura‘s collection was more towards manga and anime, which characters playing their roles in a story.

Cristina went more the music way, the characters were j-rock stars:

Overall, everyone worked hard, designers, models, helpers, for the image to come well.

Dog walk

Even the dogs enjoy a sunny summer day and a walk on the beach. I wonder, what Superman would think about that? Probably he would enjoy it.

Still summer

I look at the window, the sun is up and bright, it still looks like summer. I look to the calendar, still August, still summer. Then maybe post a couple of pics about the summer fun.

Keep the city clean

We, people of Bucharest are unhappy with our city for being dirty and unclean. Fortunately, there are people taking care of that, we should thank them 🙂 (actually, she seems to be waitress at some pub in the Old City in assignment with “lower work”… someone has to do that).

Hospital

If a couple of days ago I had a photo with people sleeping on the street across the street from the Emergency Hospital in Bucharest, this morning I saw some others right in front of it. Everyone’s attitude was like nothing out of ordinary.

Blow me!

“Blow me!” she said, and that is exactly he did, her wish was his command. She is a plastic toy and he is a grown man. And this is NOT a fable.

Transfagarasan

After enjoying a few weeks before Transalpina, which is the highest road in Romania, next in line was Transfăgărășan, which, according to some is the most amazing road in the world. It was not my first time here, I crossed it once before, but that happened in a rainy and cloudy day when I was on foot, on a mountain trip.

Ice cream: how it’s made

Is still summer, the time we eat more ice cream, so the question may logically appear: how the ice cream is made? The answer is simple: from milk!

No parking

The sign says “no parking” (ro: “nu parcați”) and the scene takes place across the road from the Emergency Hospital in Bucharest (I see those people every morning when going to the office, today I was there a little early in the day and they were still asleep)

Micu’i frate cu romănu’

There is an old saying, “the forest is the Romanian’s brother” (ro: “codru-i frate cu românul”), which I feel like paraphrasing today, “the mic is the Romanian’s brother” (ro: “micu-i frate cu românul”), where mici is a very traditional Romanian food (a kind of sausages) which most of the time is accompanied by beer.

Hell

The naive painter of this old wooden church from a Romanian village had his own vision on hell and the tortures people getting there will have to endure. The painting is hundreds of years old and made on wood, so it became pretty damaged, which is a shame, but you still can understand it and have a good laugh.

Garcea vs. Tuzgureanu

Both Garcea and Tuzgureanu are comedic stereotypes of the Romanian policemen as seen by a couple of local comedy shows and from their look, those guys seen at a St. Mary fair happening near some village are well fit for the role.
