In memory of... Pukkelpop 2011

All my thoughts are with the victims and survivors of the tragedy that took place Thursday at Pukkelpop 2011. I'm relieved that all my friends are safe at home now and that none of them were seriously injured. But it's sad that other young people have left their lives on this festival...

Rest in peace, dear Pukkelpoppers...
We think of you!

Clup Copacabana at Bibi's

Thursday evening I went with some friends to Clup Copacabana - Ne Vuilen Avond at café Bibi's in Antwerp. On the banks of the Schelde (not just hidden in the reeds) Radio Modern operates three months this summer, a long cool summer bar in the cellar of 't Steen. The concept of the evening were small performances by various artists typically for the early fifties. The costumes and make-up were amazing and it was an evening full of entertainment. I really enjoyed it and I hope the others did too!

I wanted to talk about my dog - named Bazil - for a long time now because he's my soulmate in the figure of an animal. I would really die for him!
We got him four years ago in the summer after we lost our first beloved dog to a tumor. After a year of tears and grief, we finally made the step to find us a new friend. We chose Bazil out of seven Labrador puppies and we picked him because he immediately felt asleep on the arm of my sister. So we thought we picked a calm and lovely dog, but that was not true! He's like the craziest en most energetic dog I know and he wants to play all the time! And if that was not enough, he has an inexhaustible perseverance. He never stops putting his ball on your legs or at your feet until you pick it up. But besides the fact that he never gets tired, he would die to be near you at all times. This dog has so much love and hugs inside him: he is my biggest teddy bear. Sometimes I even think he imagines himself a chihuahua so he can lie on my lap! I can't imagine missing him or losing him, because he's really the best thing that ever happened to me... Whenever I come home, he's always at the door waiting for me and he jumps higher than my head from joy. He always makes me smile and he fils my heart with happiness whenever he's near me or in my thoughts.

Bazil, you are my biggest friend!

In his "throne"...

Les Petites... Favourites!

I've got this new bag by Les Petites... and I really like him! He is totally what I expect of a bag: beautiful with a comfortable strap and lots of place for all my stuff. And above all that: good leather!
