I am a year wiser. Again. Besides the awesome flower bouquet from my family I also got a Tiffany's ring from the T collection I've been eyeing for a while and these fun balloons. I wonder what is the appropriate age to get this excited about balloons on your birthday... :).
I hope you all had a great weekend!
Jsem o rok moudrejsi. Zase. Krome te uzasne kytice od rodiny, kterou jsem vam ukazala v minulem postu, jsem dostala prstynek od Tiffanyho z T kolekce a tyhle dokonale balonky. Premyslim, do jakeho veku je v poradku byt takhle nadsena z balonku k narozeninam... :).
Doufam, ze jste meli skvely vikend.

Jungle Flowers

My exotic bouquet is called the Flamingo
Apparently my mom  has a thing for the most unique flowers. This year she had a bouquet delivered to me from.... Ecuador! Yes you read that right. She was browsing the Internet in Prague, I was running around New York and these "jungle flowers" were getting some serious sun in Ecuador. How awesome is that! If you are thinking "oh no, she had flowers delivered on the plane, what a waste..." I have to say I buy local bouquets very often at the Union Sq market and I believe it's ok to have something extra special every now and then. Let's face it I can not buy bananas locally grown in New York state :)). Also Bougs claim that their farmers only cut what they sell, which I think is amazing. I hate to see so many flowers wasted, don't you? Anyways they have a subscription and I'm seriously thinking about trying it out because there's a very few things that make me happier than beautiful flowers (maybe new heels?!). 
Moje maminka ma evidentne talent na objevovani tech nejunikatnejsich kytic. Letos mi nechala k narozeninam poslat kytici... az z Equadoru! Ano, ctete spravne. Surfovala po internetu v Praze, ja jsem pobihala po New Yorku a tyhle "kytky z dzungle" se zatim slunily v Equadoru. Bomba! Pokud si zrovna rikate: "to snad ne, nechala si poslat kytky letadlem, takova skoda...", tak vas uklidnim, ze vetsinou si kupuji kvetiny od mistnich farmaru na trhu na Union square, ale verim, ze jednou za cas neni tak hrozne si doprat neco specialniho. Budme k sobe uprimni, tyhle banany si proste lokalne vypestovane ve state New York nekoupite :)). Dalsi plus vidim v tom, ze firma Bougs slibuje, ze farmari, se kterymi spolupracuji, utrhnou opravdu jen to, co prodaji a to je super. Taky tak nesnasite vyhozene kytky v kosi? Priznam se, ze kdyz jsem si prosla jejich web a videla, ze maji predplatne, zacala jsem o tom vazne uvazovat, protoze existuje opravdu jen malo veci, ktere mi udelaji vetsi radost nez krasna kytice (mozna nove lodicky?!). 

Phnom Penh Diary

The Royal palace
 Apsara dancers
The Central Market inside a beautiful Art Deco building
 Typical flower arrangements
A late tuk tuk drive
Our hotel
Here's my first post about Cambodia. Finally. I took a while to go through all the photos because you know it was Christmas and New Year's and life happened. Today I'm sitting at my New York's apartment back from Europe and it is snowing and just plain ugly outside so it is perfect to just lounge around and do some work on my notebook.
All of these photos are from our first stop Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia. I was surprised by how many expats live in Cambodia and one of the expats we met while there was an American guy who owns a shop with records and posters. If you are like me - always on a hunt for a special souvenir this shop/gallery Space Four Zero is for you. I got one of the posters with Sticky Fingers - a rock band based in here. Seriously who can say they have a poster with a local band from Cambodia!
 Having a drink at the Elephant bar at the Raffles hotel is a must
Konecne se s vami podelim o prvni clanek o Kambodzi. Trvalo mi hodne dlouho se vsemi fotkami prokousat a samozrejme byly Vanoce, Silvestr a tak nejak se udal zivot. Nicmene dnes sedim uz zpet z Evropy na svem gauci v New Yorku a venku snezi a je opravdu nehezky zatazeno, takze vlastne idealni stav na to, abych se povalovala doma s notebookem na kline a udelala alespon nejakou praci. 
Vsechny fotky, ktere s vami dnes sdilim, jsou z nasi prvni zastavky - hlavniho mesta Phnom Penh. Byla jsem dost prekvapena mnozstvim expatu, ktere jsem tam nahodou potkali a jednim z nich byl i American, ktery vlastni opravdu unikatni obchod s deskami a plakaty. Pokud jste alespon trochu jako ja a vzdy hledate netradicni suvenyr, tak tenhle shop/galerie Space Four Zero bude neco pro vas. Odnesla jsem si jeden z plakatu s mistni rockovou kapelou Sticky Fingers. No kdo to ma!
