Arts Park

I went to another artsy fartsy event this weekend. It’s called Arts Park and it is a gathering of vendors selling flowers, foods, paintings and natural beauty products. I ended up getting mangoes, a bouquet of flowers and slice of Ethiopian cake all for $5.50. The cake was lemon and pineapple and it was a slice of heaven!  I want to go back just so I can get more cake. They also play movies in the park on Saturday nights which I want to go to soon. I forgot my camera so I didn’t take pics but here’s a pic of the beautiful bouquet I bought.

Pop Bits 3rd Edition

Personal Pop

Tropical Storm Bonnie is on its way to South Florida. A tropical storm is stronger than a tropical depression but weaker than a hurricane and is classified by wind speeds of 39 – 73 mph. My main concern is about flooding and losing electricity since that seems to happen easily here in South Florida. I already have a flashlight and candles and last Continue reading

I’ll Snatch Ya Wig Off

Apparently the Real Housewives of Atlanta were in my city this weekend (Miami) and I missed them :-(. But conveniently, Thomas Kramer, a real estate investor who is on my facebook , hosted them at his Star Island mansion and he took pics.

Are Kim and Thomas holding hands???
Open your eyes boo

These pictures bring up a few questions: Is Thomas the newest housewife? Is Kim dating Thomas? What happened to Big Poppa (Lee Najjar)?

Well, the original Big Poppa is a real estate developer in Atlanta and Thomas Kramer is a real estate developer in Miami so…

I guess all will be revealed during the 3rd season of RHOA which will air this fall.

Who Defines Reality?

Last night I saw “Inception”, which is a sci-fi action flick produced, written and directed by Christopher Nolan. The cast included Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, to name a few. This movie explores the landscape of dreams and blurs the lines of reality. I must say that it is one of the most creative and unique movie concepts and it is also one of the best movies I have ever seen. It has superb action sequences, excellent cinematography and very interesting stunts; slightly reminiscent of “The Matrix”. However, I will say that you really have to pay attention during this movie to understand what exactly is going on and it does blur the lines of reality so it can leave the viewer confused. Also, the ending is up for interpretation so some may not like that but I do think that there will be a sequel. Overall, I give this movie a 9.5/10.

I also saw the trailer for the Facebook, movie, “The Social Network”. I had heard that there was a movie coming out about Facebook but I thought to myself,”how interesting can a story about Facebook be”? But once I saw the trailer I realized that the movie was about Mark Zuckerberg and the creation of Facebook and the adversity he faced doing so. I love learning about entrepreneurs and how they became successful, and I have researched Mark Zuckerberg, so I will definitely be checking this movie out. Not to mention that the movie looks entertaining and I am addicted to Facebook.  Can you believe that Mark is 26 years old and worth $4 billion? I can definitely learn a thing or two from him.
