New Year’s eve… or evil?

Posted by dec 30 2009

New Year’s Eve is usually about fun, parties and champagne, but – as you cal all feel – not this time. If you are wondering, what’s this pressure what makes you not wanting to get out of bed, and why do you feel like drinking a glass of Clorox instead of your morning coffee, let me tell you one word: Mercury. And no, I don’t mean Freddie…

My online Kabbalistic Astrology teacher, Yeal made me feel so much better about this strange anti-party mood of mine. Turns out, all the fights, all the moods, even the depressed hysteria was totally predictable. This NYE’s week’s survival kit is called: communication, communication, communication, according to Yael. “Mercury is already retrograde as you know and will be until January 15th. So remember to double and triple check everything we do.” she sais.  You might think you hear something clearly but rest assured there will either be confusion on one end or the other. This month of the Capricorn energy is also in full swing so what I need you to do is fight the urge to get back into bed and under the covers. Did you know that Marilyn Monroe almost never took showers when she was depressed? Yuck, right? Well I guess “some like it stinky”… but if you are not one of them, start your exercise program early, use a ginger-lemon body scrub, start that damn South Beach Diet, or get that extra shot in your mochaccino.  “You will want to throw your hands up and call it quits but keep going.  Just know that all the effort that you put in now will be rewarded later!” says Yael.

“So this week keep moving forward, start making your goals and putting effort towards them for next year.” If you don’t feel like throwing a fancy party, putting on your chic makeup and wearing that silly, pink Britney wig what you bough ages ago, so forget it, but do not forget to live! New Year’s Eve is not a bit more special then any other day, but whatever day it is, you always have to “fight for your right: the party”… the greatest ball, which is called LIFE.

One snowy night… at home

Did you ever see a trimmed palm tree? Just askin’… since I’m welcoming christmas in Tel Aviv this year. So if you are there, you have to eat yummy bites, enjoy shopping tours, and cultural events for me as well! “I’ll be home for christmas… if only in my dreams.”


“Last christmas… ” …I was in Budapest.

I know, I know… Hungary is freaking cold trough the wintertime. That’s why we, Huns love to warm up with a little booz – such as mulled wine from the Vörösmarty square. Enjoy December’s cheerful and fun event, the traditional Christmas Market near Váci utca, the heart of the city. Try kürtőskalács, aka chimney cake, a classic Hungarian favourite, and spy on the local fashionistas. Budapest is a real fashion hotspot, the most important shopping area in Budapest is Váci street and the side streets, Kígyó street, Petőfi Sándor street, and the historical avenue, Andrássy út. With it’s fancy Armani, Bubery and Gucci stores you surely will love it’s posh charm. Allee Shopping Centre is the „it girl” in town, in Buda. It has all the important shops and apperantly Hungary’s largest book shop, Libri. If you come here, you can avoid the most typical and most stupid gifts in Hungary, the white peasant blouse, tablecloth with tulips or a doll with Hungarian costume… kinda boring, right?

Well, nor for me. To be honest, I miss my home, I miss my friends and I miss everything… even the bad things, what used to make me really angry or upset about my country. I miss the trashy underground, Metro, I miss the short days and rainy nights and I truly miss some stupid fights and misunderstandings with my loved ones. I miss some Euro-culture. Close to the museum you can visit Gödör, a famous club, coffe place and exhibition centre. The program between Christmas and New Year includes thematic nights: Christmas – Chanukah, Jazz extra, Balkan Beats, and New Year’s Eve. It gives the essence of Hungary’s music, showing a wide range of world music, pop-rock, jazz and electric music performed by famous Hungarian performers. If you prefer words over music, meat Hungary’s English speeking theatre groups. „The audience should think about the way we live and what we are. Otherwise why do it? I’m interested in the possibility of redemption, however tiny that possibility is, and I know that forgiveness is very difficult.”
says Simon Stephens who’s story, Pornography is kind of a self-reflection for all of us.

After a deep impact of drama the best way to relax is going out. Alterego’s, Glam’s and Underground’s events are  listed in the petite calendar of the free Na Végre! and Company magazines – you can find them at the gay-friendly clubs and restaurants. And even if there is no special theme night, you can spin around the pole or grab glass of Hungarian wine – u decide if you wanna be a slut or a sophisticated gentleman. Whatever you choose, play safe, and come back soon. Maybe I’ll be back by then.

Marry Xmas and Happy New Year, Santa baby.

Are you ready to think pink?

Last spring’s super production has finally arrived on DVD with English subtitles! This sexy, Hungarian-language teen trash comedy from director Gabor Forgacs tells the story of  a teenage plastic-princess and her outrageous plan of founding a cheerleading squad in an old hat school. Oh, and guess who wrote the screenplay…

filmkep.nofJealous, Paris darling?

Bingo… it was me. And trust me, these dolls are ready to take over the world! In the school where all the guys are cool and all the girls are hot, Regina Feld had it all: blond… sexy… and she was dating with the most popular guy from the basketball team. She thought she will be the queenbee forever… well, she was wrong! ’Cos a misterious stranger is about to turn her world upside down! Since every school has it’s own rules… especially the really posh ones, instead of a new mate she gets only new hate. If you wanna play the game, you got to know: if you play by the rule, you’re a damn fool. The question is: BFF stands for best friends forever… or brutal foes forever?  One thing is for sure: our cheerleader is not so cheerful now… and defenetley not a leader.

Starring the super sexy blonde ambition: Lilla Labanc…
Love… Fight… Jelousy… Passion…!

A foxy comedy what you just can’t miss!
