Daily Prompt: Flattery

Praise that is not sincere…

At least trying to participate in the Daily Prompt..helped me learn something today…

It’s not as if i did not know how to use this word in a sentence…but now after reading its meaning, something made it click in my if the idea, the understanding was there already but now it makes more sense. Now, I will remember it and will not forget about it..

Maybe, it is because I also saw it written and as we know vision takes precedence over our other senses..for example, someone can tell you a piece of information and you will remember 10% of it after 5 days..but, if you see a picture or a video of the same thing you will probably remember 65% after a few days.



BELUGA & THE SNAIL It all started one Saturday when I met my Russian friend Anastasia at the Grande Bretagne Hotel for a cup of tea! YEzzz...once I was told that drinking a cup of tea or coffee in a Versace tea cup is way better than doing it at any other place...and it costs the same... Well, I don't necessarily agree with all of that but I do enjoy the atmosphere, the Victorian inspired looking cup and the pianist in the background.. ;) I thought that would be another great experience to share with my dear friend. Well, after reading the menu and seeing how much a beluga caviar dish dear Anastasia became Beluga..we laughed so much...and how appropriate..beluga caviar = Russian friend.. or maybe very inappropriate but we both screamed out that name for her at the same time and we've been doing it ever since... Next weekend..during a shopping spree we ended up in Sephora where I vigorously looked for this Tonymoly sheet mask with snail slime that I LOVE so that Anastasia can try it too... No Snail sheet mask anywhere to be found.. and I was so disappointed..Anastasia outed the words..: "Snail not fail"... and that's when my so appropriate name came to life... So there you go.. I became the Snail!! So this is how this blog name was created... I enjoy new experiences, being part of other cultures and travelling around the world!
