patient, no chance…

Standard

I saw a post on Facebook of Nóri, a make-up artist I had a chance to meet via one of my jobs by Dream Media and I wanted to try this test with my name too…the result is the following, pfffff… now, if you know me being patient is not really my quality and I am like that with everything in my life, I am rather like this song below from Queen!

gabi…this one 🙂

 

“Listen all you people, come gather round
I gotta get me a game plan, gotta shake you to the ground
Just give me what I know is mine,
People do you hear me, just give me the sign,
It ain’t much I’m asking, if you want the truth
Here’s to the future for the dreams of youth,
I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now,
I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now”

*the video is not my property…

Test was taken via: http://en.nametests.com/

the video speaks for itself :)

Hi People…

I will tell u only couple of words, for the rest watch the video…home-edition, but wow, now I can imagine what a huge job is to make a movie…

pls…it’s the first time I have opened such software, so do not expect a Hollywood movie 😉

I used a free software, downloadable from the internet and called “Easy video maker”, making the video was really easy, this program for us amateurs is logical and easy to use, however after finishing and saving the project I thought this is that I can upload it to youtube and link it here…couple of hours later I learned I had to convert the final video to MP4. Pffffff, amateur…but, it is logical!

After struggling alone for about a 2 hour I decided to post the question: “how to convert rzmmpj extension to mp4 to be able to upload to Youtube?”. I posted to my newly created Facebook group: “Hungarian models, actors, musicians, entertainers – English speaking”…an acquitance messaged me!

About a month ago I met Robert Stuparu from Romania on the International event called “Meetup” that was held in Ankert, he was the one who helped me out. He asked me to provided him with printscreens via private message and he found the magic button…

Robert, you made my day!

Hobby video creators, once you are using this video creator/editor, remember the following: in “Easy video maker” the final button for publishing/converting to MP4 and exporting a project is called “Render”!  (at the right bottom corner)

So the important words for this video are: Ceruza játszótér (Pencil playground), Gellért, bus 27, Buda side…and just a casual winter day with Filip and Lola!

And another conclusion: if you need a help, ask for a help (my group is a perfect place for that)

 

Mini “me”

Standard

A friend of mine sent me two days ago a photo about himself as a baby and I looked at my wall …I have a wall covered with Filip’s and my photos from the childhood and since I moved often, I was afraid once to put them away and never find again. I also planned to make some digital version of them anyway to save for the “old age” period.

Here is a prove I was blond and stylish as always, hahahahaha

Lower the first photo with dad, he probably told me to do these stupid faces, but I do not recall anything about it, however I like my dumb faces and not knowing what to do in front of camera, just as now many times 😀

The second photo is in my grandparents frontyard in a village called Tóba (I visited for X-mas my grandma, I heard there are now only about 500 inhabitants there).

I spent there lot’s of nice summers and winters, because the street was full of kids, I had lots of cousins living in the street and I was the youngest and the only girl, I was protected by my “brothers”. This is a photo where I cannot deny I am Hungarian 🙂 I have the typical Hungarian motives – “kalocsai” embroidery. On the last photo, the baby is my sister Tünde and the blond boy, Paul is my cousin in the US. And I am 100% sure we were dressed up specially for this photographing (you know, for being good looking on the photos). How much we hated this as a kid, you will see later on one of the photos.

I do not know if you realized my hair is short, I was not happy with that either. I always wanted to have a long hair, later when I was a bit older, couple of times I managed to grow it, but for very short periods. Let’s say: My parents probably recognized short hair suits me more, but…anyway.

Actually I could never really grow a “long, long Frozen Elsa hair” even after in my older ages. I love my short haircut now a lot. And Filip likes the long hair of our babysitter Erika. 😀

These kids are my cousins, I am missing my sister and brother on the photos, and  Gabrili’s sister Anna. My sister Tünde was probably playing with the black cat in the huge trunk of my aunties Mercedes and my brother József arrived to the world 14 year later after me 😀

I am the girl in the blue on the right, but I think it is obvious. I loved that dress.

Lídia, Gabrili, Tanja, me, István and Mirela – from left going onto right

And below is the “I hate photographing” photo. Look at my face, like “common finish and let’s take off this dress, because it was anyway ment for photographing”.

My grandfathers 6 brother and sisters family are/were living in the US, I recall one of my Great Aunts each time she visited us, she brought us cute dresses. My memories are blurry about these family members, because we did not meet a lot.

Oh yeah, we always got the same dresses, like twins. Now I find it cute, but then I didn’t. 😀

I guess Aunty did not wanted to make difference in the presents – you know kids can be jelaous at each other – or she just found cute to see two  nice girls in nice dresses. 😀

See the contrast with my sister, only common in our look is the dress.

Mom  Irén,  dad József,  me and my sister Tünde (in translation: willow, but she was more devil)

This below is Attila,  I have no clue who is he, some family friends kid, but I love this photo.

The roses are red, the violet is blue, the honey is sweet and we are too 😉

and this girl was my only competition in Tóba (my grandparents village), sometimes were were friend, but mostly fighting. And this is another dress from the US which my sister had too (I do not know where she was when this photo was taken)

Sári, Gabi and the white socks, and again “nice setup” for photographing

sorry, no more photos for now 🙂

2015 in review

Standard

Nice surprise from WordPress this morning…an annual report.

I was not active the whole year and I am writing only occasionally and in a simple way, but I like doing it from time to time. I like the way how Wordpress is presenting even my figures to sound as a big number (check the excerpt at the end).

However, next year I will need some training to improve things on my blog, these figures to look better.

However, dear readers, thank you for reading me and following me from 75 countries.

Special thanks to French1955 for the regular likes, but I appreciate the clicks and likes from all of you! 😀

Wish you all Happy Holidays!

**************************************************

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,500 times in 2015. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.

Inés, anniversary :)

Standard

I have no clue yet where I am gonna spend this “NYE”, it is gonna be a surprise to myself as last year.

What did I do last year? I got fed-up with nobody knows where to go, so I chose the Couchsurfing community party in Budapest and I went alone. I did not stay for long there, but …

This is how and where I met this crazy french girl called Inés (hm… or it was hear thinking of me I am the crazy one or the man-eater 😀 😀

Inés, let’s start planning another hitchhiking in your summer sneakers, you know from experience winter is the best period for hitchhiking, possibly let’s do another 2000 km trip in 2 days, lets meet the Slovenian police again (this time let’s dress up like sluts, at least for them, not to be a disappointment to be just an ordinary hitchhikers trying to get a car to Ljubljana, Milan to reach Genova and that Brazilian party, where I might meet that guy Nicola :D, but in the meantime we should stop on that gas station to talk to the Spanish truck driver to close his pants before he starts talking to us, or discuss with Cesare some kinky details about gifted Brazilian guys…

… I am recalling all the beautiful people we met on a way!

in Milan exhausted, but looking for that pasta for Inés

okay, the rest let’s talk through on Skype, and this message below is a good wish for you too

…and I just want to add another sentence: that night when I was fighting with my demons, I am so happy you were the person with me, thank you for your full understanding, support and being with me in those hard moments, honestly. I know it was not easy.

Another “about me” recognition

I am a romantic who enjoys strolling through cobblestone streets and markets. i am inspired by art and architecture, and thrive being surrounded by other artists and intellectuals. I enjoy the bustle of a city, but also love spending time in the warm countryside, sitting at a cafe, and having a glass of wine or coffee. My soul is nourished by being in nature *mostly seaside and by having deep meaningful conversation about love, art, and the meaning of life. Thank you Geneva, you gave me these moments with the lake, with the people, with the mountain, with the four season weather, with the languages, with the buildings…

how Samba became my passion 🙂

Lincoln, man, u inspired me with the music u posted on Facebook, though the music u posted was not related to Samba dance or music in a way at all, but it relates to Brazil, anyways, I decided to put it here as I liked the lyrics and the music of this song 😉 even the singer is a bit Justin Bieber type, but he is good! 😀

I like acoustic music a lot!

*********************************************

I do not remember the exact moment when Samba really became a passion of mine, but I am sure it has lots of relation to the people I have met…

I think i just remembered…

it was on one of the Couchsurfing parties organized by one of the Ambassadors – an Italian guy Sergio, at this party I met another DJ called Tom, he is Brazilian (he moved back to Brazil couple of month ago…
