Postarea aceasta e in mare parte scrisa pentru mine acum mult timp. Am alcatuit lista asta repede, in vreo 10 minute, ca sa scap de povara zilelor in care “nimic nu merge bine”. I wrote this post for myself, a long time ago. It’s a list that I’ve put together quickly, in about 10 minutes, to take my mind off things when “Nothing good ever happens”.

Solutia la care apelez atunci cand nu am chef sa gatesc, dar nici nu vreau sa mananc prostii in pauza de pranz 🙂 My fix for when I’m not in the mood for cooking but I don’t want to eat junk food at lunch the next day 🙂


Iată rețeta după care am gătit traditionalii mucenici muntenești. Îmi plac la nebunie cu nuca din belșug. Voi pe care ii preferați? Cei muntenești sau sau cei moldovenești?



Aici puteți citi si povestea mucenicilor.

Pentru ca am avut pofta de ceva gustos, rapid si usor de preparat, am pregatit cateva portii de briose cu sunca si cascaval. M-am inspirat de aici si au iesit delicioase. I wanted to eat something tasty but easy to prepare so I tried a recipe that I found online: “Muffins with ham and cheese”.


  • 4 eggs
  • 200 grams of ham (cut into small pieces)
  • 200 grams cheese
  • 50 ml milk
  • 50 g butter
  • 10 g of baking powder
  • salt

Mix everything up with a vertical blender and add flour until your mix has a sour cream consistency. Then fill the cupcake liners. Preheat your oven at 190 degrees Celsius and bake for approximately 20 minutes.

Recunosc, nu sunt o mare bucatareasa, dar cum omul trebuie sa si manance, de cand am plecat de langa mama trebuie sa ma descurc si singura. Cand am chef sa mananc ceva bun si usor de preparat solutia e simpla: quesadilla. Daca nu am pofta de carne si varianta vegetariana este foarte buna – arata fix asa: I have to admit that I’m not a great cook. But I have to make do, since I don’t live with my lovely mom anymore.  A Quesadilla is perfect when I’m in the mood for a delicious, easy meal. The vegetarian recipe is also delicious.

Intotdeauna m-au pasionat lucrurile noi, tehnologia, gadget-urile lui James Bond si fazerele din Star Trek. Sunt pasionata de tehnologie si daca toata casa mea ar fi un cub Samsung controlat cu privirea sau cu senzori cerebrali care mi-ar citi miscarile m-as declara fericita.

Am urmarit cu interes ultimul eveniment Samsung Unpacked si, desi stiu ca multi nu vor fi impresionati, eu va anunt ca mie mi-a placut.

M-as inscrie pe lista de asteptare daca n-as tine prea mult la economiile mele, pe care le-am adunat cu greu in timp ce priveam cu jind in vitrina la modelele de primavara-vara din vitrinele de la mall!

Ok, sa revenim la S5. Mi-a placut design-ul care ofera mai multe culori, nu ma impac insa cu gandul ca a crescut cu cativa inchi, in conditiile in care eu abia pot sa tin in mana un S3 sau un S4. Cei de la Samsung s-au laudat cu design-ul de pe spatele telefonului, care ofera mai multa siguranta si mai mult confort. Astept sa il tin in mana pana sa va impartasesc impresiile.

S5-ul lansat la Barcelona se lauda cu o camera principala de 16 MP, in timp ce camera secundara a ramas la 2 MP. Camera principala iti permite sa faci poze impresionante. Samsung a imbunatatit si tehnologia  HDR. E rezistent la umezeala si la praf. Atentie, nu e rezistent la apa, e ok daca se uda putin, dar nu va rezista scufundat total in apa. Ecranul e de 5,1 inch, Full HD Super AMOLED, extrem de adaptabil in functie de lumina. Bateria e imbunatatita (2800mAh) si rezista la 10 ore de navigat pe net si la 12 ore de playback video. Galaxy S5 are un procesor quad-core la 2,5 GHz, 2 GB de RAM, 16 sau 32 GB  spatiu, si 145 de grame.

Ultra Power Saving Mode e o alta inovatie: display-ul va deveni alb-negru si, la 10% baterie va rezista alte 24 de ore.

Senzorul de amprente nu lipseste, acesta va putea fi folosit inclusiv pentru a confirma platile online. Telefonul ruleaza Android 4.4 (Kit Kat).

Galaxy S5 e primul telefon din lume cu senzor pentru masurarea ritmului cardiac. Este plasat chiar langa blitz. Siguranta sporita a parut sa fie una dintre prioritatile celor de la Samsung, care au gandit un Privacy mode dar si un Kids mode, pentru ca parintii sa stea fara grija daca telefonul ajunge in mainile copiilor.

S5 nu a fost insa singura inovatie de la Barcelona. Cei de la Samsung s-au concentrat mult si asupra gadget-urilor care vor acompania telefonul. O varianta imbunatatita a ceasului, Gear 2, cu buton home si baterie mult mai durabila (3 zile), dar si doua versiuni light ale acestuia: Gear 2 Neo (fara camera video spre deosebire de Gear 2) si Gear Fit, un accesoriu destinat pasionatilor de fitness, si nu numai. Vestea buna e ca Gear Fit va fi disponibil pentru 20 de modele Samsung Galaxy. Acesta masoara si ritmul cardiac si are curele ce pot fi schimbate cu usurinta. Este unul dintre produsele care m-au impresionat.

Lansarea noilor produse Samsung va avea loc pe 11 aprilie in 150 de tari.

I’ve always been in love with technology and gadgets. Toys from the first James Bond movies that now are available for the whole population, or the fazer from Star Trek. I’m a tech junkie and if I had a Samsung cube for a home that I could control with my eyes or something, then I’d be happy.

I’ve watched the latest Samsung Unpacked and, even if I know that some people won’t like the new S5, I’m already a fan!

I’d be on the waiting list for the S5, if I only had a stack of money.

Now back to the S5. I loved the design, lots of new colors, but I don’t know about the new size: 5.1 inches versus 4.8 inches, like S3 and S4. I mean I can barely hold on to my S3. Samsung states that the new back cover design provides more comfort, but I’ll have to hold one in my hand to see if that’s true.

The S5 launched in Barcelona, and has a 16 MP camera, while the front camera remains at 2 MP. The main camera has a fast auto focus and improved HDR mode.  Galaxy S5 is water and dust resistant but not waterproof! The screen it’s 5.1 inches,  Full HD Super AMOLED, and light adaptable. The 2800 mAh battery supports 12 hours of video play and 10 hours of internet time. S5 has a 2.5GHz quad-core application processor, Android 4.4.2 (Kit Kat), 2GB RAM, 16 or 32GB internal storage and 145g.

Galaxy S5 comes with Ultra Power saving mode (for example, at 10% battery all services except the basic ones are switched off  – the screen will turn black and white and the phone’s battery will last another 24 hours)

Samsung’s fingerprint scanner is built into the home button – and it can authorize online payments.

S5 is the first telephone that can measure the heart rate (the sensor is right next to the camera flash) Safety comes first for the Galaxy S5, the phone has a Privacy Mode, and a Kids mode.

S2 was not the only innovation in Barcelona. Samsung has a wide range of accessories for the phone: Gear 2, a smart watch, Gear 2 Neo, a version of Gear 2 that is lighter and cheaper, and Gear Fit – that comes with the functionality of Gear 2 but in the size of a fitness band. The Gear Fit was my favorite – it will be compatible with 20 Galaxy devices. Gear Fit also measures the heart rate.

Samsung will launch the Galaxy S5, and the Gear devices on April 11, 2014, in 150 countries.
