France Gall

France Gall, pop teen sensation when she was young, is an absolute babe. I love her, so i thought i'd show you this week's inspiration for my learning French. :)

Ipad Love.
One of the most exciting that happened to me last term was by far, the win of the Apple Ipad, from my school, École de Management, Strasbourg. Our school had a competition entitled 'Where is my map', and i went out and took some photos around strasbourg, with some of my cute koala friends. thanks Dave and Ben the bears for all of your help... There were 4 australians at the school, so my girls C, G, and S, helped out with a few things, and to cut a long story short, the outcome was amazing.

Whole article, here.

"Félicitations à **FRANCIE, étudiante Australienne visitante à l'EM Strasbourg, pour ses koalas qui cherchent désespérément leur carte pour rentrer chez eux. (689 votes)"

over and out. that is enough catching up for the time being.

Christmas has come and gone, and I am back in Paris. As promised, my new year's resolution was to get back into blogging again, so here i am in the virtual world. I am back in France at the moment with a few new toys in hand in the form of Cameras. Mama and Papa UG got me a perfectly wonderful christmas present in the form of a Canon EOS 550D. I am definitely not complaining there.

Second off I was just hanging around he airport in Tokyo and i came across the beautiful Polaroid Mini, which ended up buying, seeing as no one was there to tell me not to. So, here comes Francie back to France with no money and another 6 months under her belt. I wonder how this is going to go. On a happier note, i got 100 shots on the camera, which means that I am going to be doing a lot of photography in the next few months, can't wait.

I will leave you with a few shots from Japan!

U.G is in Japan - au Japon - 日本で !


New year's resolution: Post at least once a week on my blog.

So here is week 1.

I flew half way across the world today to see my family, whom i haven't seen for a good year. I went back to AU for my best friend's wedding in september, that apart from that, this was the first time i had seen them in a long, long time.

Tokyo: So when a packet says Coffee Creamy in your hotel room, don't go an assume that it means that you are about to drink some creamy coffee. Upon first pouring out into cup and seeing white powder, don't go and assume that it is going to taste like coffee... Then, when you finally do try the white goodness, and realise it really does mean coffee cream, rather than creamy coffee, you won't be surprised at all.

Meltykiss Whips really are what the title says. They sure did make me want to melty kiss.

Update: I dont think i have ever had my heart broken before, but today could be the first time. I hadn't seen my sister in about 6 months, and i was so excited to see her. We talked about everything, but mostly boys... she seems to be going out with someone by the name of Grant, but also likes another said boy, michael. I ranted to her about liking two boys at the same time, but in the end, it is her choice... the conversation got onto the topic of religion, and she mentioned she wasn't 'religious' anymore.

Now our family goes to church (not that that makes you a christian at all), and we all love God. There are 6 of us in the family, and for her to share something like that with me is big news. I know that it is only God that can change her, but I feel like a thread that has always held us together has suddenly snapped. I feel like so much has changed this past year since i have seen her last, and i dont know her at all anymore.

I miss the old MJ.

I am sorry those of you who don't believe in a God, and don't want to be reading this, but i hope that you respect my blog enough to not go ranting off how wonderful it is that my sister has lost her faith in the Lord.

Crying, she said to me.. Francie, i want to believe, i really do, but when i pray, i just dont feel like i am talking to anyone. I feel stupid. If God wants me to know him, he will. I went through the same thing at the same age, so i pray that it is just something that she is going to work through, and figure out in time. I pray that she will come to see the Lord and just how much he loves her.

... Japan is AMAZING. Upload photos soon!!!
