stromae recently played a show here in montreal, and took some time out of his urban outfitters shopping spree to have a chat with me. honestly, im a big fan. ‘cheese’ is a great album that you should take the time to listen to! it also helps if you’re french speaking.. but even if you’re not, the music is great! throughout his show you could really tell how much of himself he puts into his music. he was continuously switching up his tracks, and kept the crowd guessing. everything was unbelievably well planned, including the set. the videos really dont do it any justice. the belgian mastermind even sang his most popular song ‘alors on dance’ with a holographic orchestra! there was, of course, ‘les lecons de stromae’ or lessons with stromae, which is when he literally remakes the song in front of you. so much respect. watch the video! i added english subs.
avocado, lemon juice, olive oil, chiliflakes on seven grain toast and hibiscus iced tea.
smoked trout salad, black lentils, walnuts, arugula, dried cranberries, avocado, goat cheese, cherry tomatoes, shallots and vinaigrette.
couscous with red peppers, raisins, toasted pinenuts, hummus, eggplant and merguez.
although there was quite the wait for a table, my tastebuds were pleased after the delicious food at cafe gitane. the food is quite easy to make, so ill probably have a go at these at home (especially the avocado toast). the french/moroccan combo is nice and light for the summer. the outdoor seating was my favourite bit, as the seats face outwards just like any authentic french cafe. this facilitates my lurking of the well dressed passer byers.

when people think love, they also tend to think paris. when i think paris, i think macarons, debaucheries and colette. at the moment, all i can manage is the former. my sister received a lesson with a french chef/baker and together they made macarons (which are extremely difficult to get just right). now that we have all the equipment, we had a little test run. cute & yummy is why i love them. happy valentines day!
ok so im definitely not a movie whiz. i havent seen too many movies in my day, but the ones i do like best are foreign films. i already have a love for traveling, so i think its in a way an extension of that. in one of my classes last semester i watched this one documentary on gypsies- no talking, just music, called LATCHO DROM. it was really good, and i went home and rewatched it a bunch of times. the last movie i think i saw was HELLO SCHOOL GIRL, a korean film. it is so cuuute!!! watch it with english subtitles on youtube! and last but not least, the next movie i want to watch is this french film ENTER THE VOID, it looks so interesting!
