Your Taste in Music Says You're Wild Your musical tastes are intense and rebellious. You are intelligent... but in a very unconventional way. You are curious about the world. You love doing something new. In fact, you enjoy taking risks and doing things most people would shy away from. You are very physical. It's likely that you're athletic, but not into team sports. You have the soul of an artist. Beauty and harmony are important to you. What Does Your Taste in Music Say About You? I sometimes like to get a bit funky as far as music is concerned and I adore the 80s! Oh yes! It's true that I like taking risks and doing things most people wouldn't do ...like go back to college at 35! I loved that Diversity group by the way...they are pretty wild! Filakia!

Anastasia mou, it is very nice to know that my blog inspires you. It's true that Larnaca is a beautiful town. And it has a very special place in my heart. That's where I was born and grew up. I loved it as it was then with only a few people at night at Finikoudes and I love it as it is now with all the hustle and bustle at the seafront bars and cafes. LOL! I can't believe you told the petrol man "that's very kind of you" - a simple thanks would be more ..appropriate! What I like most in Larnaca is some of the beaches. I often go for a quick swim very early in the morning, just before setting off to Nicosia for work. And I still miss my old job in Larnaca and my old colleagues. Yet, I couldn't say no to a promotion and a great pay. I think we can arrange a non-virtual coffee break at your place...with Lakis maybe?

I disagree with you Anastasia. Sakis was brilliant last night and I think that he did everything in his power to win. It was an amazing show!And I believe that he should have been in the 5 first. But when eastern European countries vote each other and of course they voted Norway because Alexander is of Russian origin - he was born in Minsk - we don't have many chances to win. It seems that in Eurovision the more neighbours a country has the more chances to win!

I believe that human life is precious even when we are suffering and I think that no one has the right to decide about somebody else's moment to die. As long as the heart beats, there is life. But even in the most extreme cases there must be hope and encouragement. Euthanasia isn't the solution to human suffering.

I have been on Blogger since November 2008 and I like the site very much. The main reason why I like it is because it offers a lot of easy tools which make blogging a real fun while it is free at the same time.

I speak Greek and English as a second language. I have never been a linguist really and I remember how much I hated French at school! That's why I never learned anything. Same with English, but I need it for my job so I had to make an extra effort and learn it well.

Christina, flaounes is a traditional kind of Easter cheese pie made with halloumi cheese and a special yellow cheese for flaounes. But you can also use kaseri or cheddar. According to tradition in Cyprus , we bake the flaounes on Good Friday

Anastasia, this Easter I have promised myself that I will follow all our customs and traditions. On Holy Wednesday I am going to bake easter cookies (I have a special treat for you!). On Holy Thursday after the Holy Communion in the morning I will dye my eggs and in the afternoon I will make tsourekia. On Holy Friday, of course I will make flaounes (another special treat for you! I know you like them with raisins, right?)As for the games, I have organised some of our traditional ones that Lakis mentioned: souses, egg-and-spoon and long jump in ..three jumps! As you can see, I am in my very festive mood this week. I am also going to help decorate the Epitaphios on Friday.

Sophia, the secret for the loukoumades to be crispy is the oil. You need plenty of oil and it must be very hot. As for the dough sometimes the quality of the yeast plays a role and the time you let it stand.

When I was 19 I got pregnant and my first reaction was an abortion. I was very young, still a student with great dreams for my future career and financially depending on my parents. CH agreed with me for the abortion. At the hospital, the doctor advised me to give it a second thought, go home and return the following day if I still wanted the abortion. I had thought about it all night and I decided not to go back to the hospital. When 7 months later I held my baby son in my arms I felt so very thankful to that doctor who had advised me to think about it. So I am against induced abortion. Maternity is a miracle.
