J'adore cette photo...Http://Fashioneiric.Blogspot.ComColine !
Off to read it! I always like the pictures you use to illustrate articles.
I'm sooo hopping over there, I want to know everything about living in Paris! You're so lucky you're surrounded by it's beauty everyday!And my name is Polish, which is pronounced Marlena, but in English they pronnounce it Marilyn :)xoMarlenhttp://messagesonanapkin.blogspot.com/
Great interview!! I felt identified with so many things you mention about living in Paris (I'm just not as good at expressing them) and overall I was amazed by your incredible story. It must be very exciting and challenging to have lived in so many places, I bet it brings you a sort of wisdom that the rest of us don't have.Hope things are going great for you :)xoYlenia/Ambitieuse
Good to get to know you better :o)
Heck I'm already here and I still feel very inspired reading this! Awesome interview Milsters :)
OMG, we have the same background. I am a Filipina too born in the Philippines with Spanish and Chinese Ancestry. I live in Toronto now. I enjoyed reading about your Interview and know more about you. Love your 5 tips as it applies to everyday life especially Seeing the joy and light in everyday.
Sweet, I'm mixed too!Also, may I ask you what you studied in school?
What a great read! Fabulous 5 tips. I think throwing big parties are a great idea. If I ever move somewhere again - THAT is exactly what I will do.
I have a degree in Economics and a degree in Political Science, but also did a minor in Art History. I'm currently doing a diploma programme at the Ecole du Louvre, so have decided to continue my art history studies! (A huge part of my love for Paris.)What mix are you? My mum is Chinese-Filipina and my dad is Spanish.
Very cool! The Chinese Filipina comes from my mum and the Spanish comes from my dad. Btw, my sister lives in Toronto too! :) Thanks for your lovely comment on my interview!
Aww, thanks so much, Grace :)
Merci beaucoup, Coline !
I'm afraid I didn't give Expat Blogs too many photos - they only asked for a couple!
I like the Polish pronounciation better! It's a beautiful name :)
Thank you! You should do an Expats Blog interview with Tom yourself!
Hi Ylenia, thank you so much for your kind words. I'm afraid I'm not any wiser than anyone else, but I definitely screwed up many more times in many more places. :) Maybe that's worth something in and of itself - LOL. I hope things are going well for you also in this super cold city!
Throwing big parties is probably THE KEY takeaway in that entire interview!! I swear to god it changed my life! LOL
I'm half Thai and half white American mutt (of mostly German and Irish descent). Very cool! I love art history as well but never really had time to pursue studies in it..
This interview gave a good insight to what and whom I am reading so much with a joy. I also love your attittude to life, it's admirable and hope one day I can achieve what you've achieved in your life (-- which is a lot!). Just out of curiosity do you ever feel like simplying your answer when asked "where are you from?" Do you ever answer just with one country/place?
Hello Nitin. Thank you so much for your kind words! Usually when I am tired or feeling too lazy to explain, I will just say the last country I lived in for a long period of time. So sometimes in Paris, I will say London. When I was in London, I would say New York. When I was in New York, I would say Vancouver. But usually I have my answer down to 5 seconds flat now: My parents are Spanish and Filipina but I have Canadian nationality. :)
