I have a contagious smile. REALLY!! It’s because it comes from within and it brings with it genuine happiness--as to make an effort to make a better world. A colleague at work told me one day that I had cheered him up with my smile….I also love to laugh and I am always up to a great karaoke fun. As a matter of fact, on one memorable occasion, I sang the famous Cuban song: “Guantanamera” in a karaoke party when visiting Quebec. I was backed up by a group of 30 young Mexican “crooners”, who sang behind me in such a synchrony that would have raised Il Divo's eyebrows. That was incredibly fun.
A few months ago, in my French class, I incited my fellow classmates and teachers to “mumble” the lyrics of a song (in French) and to dance to the Lambada beat. The room was filled with enjoyment and laughter during the 7 hilarious-minutes that I led the group.
Oddly enough, I miss the school life and all the great things I had the opportunity to learn in my university years. So, I’ve since challenged my intellect and became fluent in Portuguese, Spanish and French (Italian is my next project), a passion that truly matches my zeal for travelling (have been to Brazil, Cuba, Argentina, Mexico, USA and other Canadian provinces).
My home is filled with flowers, love and music as I have so much to live for, appreciate and share. When listening to my ever favorites: jazz, samba, Bossa Nova, blues, classic, rock, and folk, I bring my spirited energy to the “dance floor” between the strokes of my bread-kneading and the roast burning on the stovetop, as no one is watching me.
Love to eat, and above all, I live a healthy lifestyle and model myself without being judgemental or arrogant.
Few things excite me more than picking up a great book and spending hours reading it while slurping a tiny cup of espresso coffee in my quiet and cozy living room. Last Friday, I did just that and I felt so much better than hanging out at a bar for 4 hours and talking about nothing. Love to search on the internet for whatever topic is piquing my interest at the moment. As a movie lover, I am often thrilled to explore an ever-ending list of good movies to watch. Passionate about outdoor activities, I love hiking, boating, fishing, walking and would be thrilled to explore new undertakings.
In essence, there are so many things I love about me, although there is much more you can discover for yourself.
I would love to share my zest for life with a very special person.
