Rest In Peace

I woke up this morning to horribal devasting news of a housefire in Kingston! where 11 people lost their lives in one of Queenlands Deadliest Fires. Even though I didn't know either of the families, this tragedy has touched me so deeply. I could not begin to comprehend the amount of pain their loved ones would be going though right now. 

In my culture if something of great devastion happens, we pray! so if you are religious or not...please bow your head and say this prayer.

Dear Lord, Embrace those who have been tragically taken from their loved ones, welcome them with open arms, with love in your heart ♥ As they now embark on a new journey in heaven. Make your presence felt & help those that have been left behind, help them to overcome their grief & heartache; to mourn for their loved ones lost, but to also celebrate the life they were blessed to share ♥ - Amen

Today, there are 11 new angels lining outside the gates of Heaven.

Super Powerss


SOOOOO i was watching foxtel at my folks house (i dont have it at my house wahhhh) and as you do, i flicked over to the disney channel (im such a child) and to my great excitment the INCREDIABLES was a big sucker for animations and superheroes! And then when i got home that night there was a show called "No Ordinary Family"...Coincence or not! a movie and a tv show about super powerss! i thought to myself its a SIGN!!! but yeh no, i dont have super powers *tear*...Believe me i have thought about what my life would be like as a "Super Hero" or to have any sort of ability.
So as most of you would know, when it comes to superheroes they are just AWESOME!!! Superman, Spiderman, The Hulk, Batman, Iron Man and the list just doesnt end really.  I guess i go week at the knees for Superman tho...especially the guy who played him in the latest movie...YUM! Theres just something about a strong, flying man in tights haha i always ask william to dress up as Superman at dress up parties...he always refuses! maybe it is the tights?? and bcoz he doesnt have blue eyes *sad face* LOL LOL

& then theres The Incrediables, well  what can i say??? they are a family of superheroes! The mum is super flexable, the dad is super strong, the daughter has forcefields and can go invisable, one son is super fast and lil jackjack can transform into anything. I could watch this movie over and over again! If i could choose i would be the invisable one with forcefields bahaha! i have alot of things running thru my head atm of what i could do if i had them!!! *evil laugh*

 But this new show..."No Ordinary Family" is actually pretty similar to the Incrediables just that its not cartoons...The mum is super fast, heals fast and fast metaboilism...the dad of course is super strong and can catch bullets (WOW) the daughter can read minds, and manipulate their thoughts and also see what they have seen by one touch (scary lol) and the son has a super brain which is totally cool! Im really loving it at the momentt!!! If i could choose i would totz be the mum!! fast speed and metabalism, i need that right now!! lol

So your probably thinkin WHYY THE EFFF! is this chickk talking about super powers...1. I love them 2.why the hell not and 3. well william just got a new job that requires him to leave me all by myself at home for 2 weeks sooo i guess i wish i had super powers that could either allow me to fly or run super fast, so i could see him whenever i want...Truth is! MOVIES, TV SHOWS and COMIC BOOKS suck!!!! You sit there as if the tv show or movie in front of u is actually a overview of a real family or person who can/or cannot to super human things! BOOO! fake merchandising hahaha! Now im gonna go try and buy me a Super Cool 3 world pass to MOVIEWORLD!! so i can feel as if im superman, with the superman ride...Feel like Batman, on the batman ride OR even take photos with them so i feel special haha

anywayss enough from me today!
Lotsaa Love

Opposites Attract!

If you need to make your torch work, well you have to put the Negative with the Positive which makes a spark and BAMMM the lighbulb workss! This is kind of my relationship. William and I are well, two TOTALLY completely DIFFERENT PEOPLE! but together our spark ignites and we just work!

What i hear alot of people sayy is, do opposites really attract? 

Through my observations i think usually when it comes to personality, people seek partners with their same qualities but claim to want someone who is different or they may partially draw upon theories of romantic attraction rather than their true desires for a mate. I understand that, i guess before i met William i was looking for someone who has the same interests bcoz i thought that would work!

I Love RnB....He Loves Rock
Im not patient....He is
I Love watching Keeping Up With The Kardasians....He Loves Asian Cartoons
Id rather Cake....He rather a bucket of Fairy Floss
I get annoyed at people so easy....He is so Laid back, nothing bothers him
I love cuddles before bed....he is all claustrophobic on me at night lol

Ok the list could go WAY longer but its not the point. The point is i love how different we are, we are individuals! We have learnt to tolerate each others loves/hates! I hate it when he watches his Asian Cartoons (naruto,bleach) but he knows that and he watches it between 4pm-6pm when he is home and im still at work OR he puts headphones on so i dont hear it hahaha! In my car i have a CD specially for his music, so if he is driving and i see he is getting sick of my RnB i flick it over for him...sadly for me im actually taking a liking to it haha NOOO!

We work so well, because we make it work! He really does make me a better person for eg. when i see him all laid back and mellowed over a situation i think to myself...whyyy the EFF am i all worked up? and he isnt? lol so ive kind of mellowed down since ive been with him. But even though we are so different he never seizes to amaze me! William is probably the most nicest caring male ive ever met, and i consider myself extremely lucky to have even met him let alone marry him! Since ive been with him he has just made so much sacrifices to make our lives better.

1. He was in the army reserves when i met him....(he was so sexy in his army outfit lol) but he left, because he didnt ever want that chance that he might get sent away.
2. He travelled 90kms in a weekend (my mums house, to his) to just see me.
3. It was his best mates 21st and he stayed along side me instead because i had torn cartlidge in my ribcage.
4. Shortley after we got engaged he sold his beloved xr8 that he worked so hard to get, just so we can have abit extra money in our pockets to get ahead and also to pay for our wedding.
5. And now he is sarficing seeing his friends, family and me to work in the mines, so we can have a better future.

 I truley am the luckest girl in the world. And i will contiue to be for the rest of my life

so to answer my opposites really attract??? Yes, yes they do! each to their own of course...but i do truly believe in

Opposites Attract.

Just Think...

Have you ever looked at a picture of yourself and see a stranger in the background? Doesnt it make you wonder how many people have pictures of you or how many moments of other people's lives we've been in?

Were we part of someone's life when their dream came true, or were we there when their dreams died? Did we keep trying to get in, as if we were somehow destined to be there? Or did the shot take us by surprise?

Just think,
you could be a big part of someone else's life, and not even know it.

So i was on Facebook tthe other day and i joined this group called You Know Your Portuguese When.....and it listed 40 things. I laughed because pretty much all the dot points were so relevant to my life! So heres the story of my life in dot points haha

You Know Your Portugese When.

-You spent your entire childhood thinking what you ate for lunch was pronounced "sanweesha."
-You've experienced the phenomena of 150 people fitting into 50 square feet of yard during a family gathering.
-You were surprised to discover that people eat only three meals a day, not seven.
-You were as tall as your grandmother by the age of seven.
-You ate your salad after the main course
-You thought every meal had to be eaten with a hunk of bread in your left hand.
-You drank wine before you were a teenager
-Your grandparent's furniture was as comfortable as sitting on plastic. Wait!!!! You were sitting on plastic.
-You called any pasta "shpargett"
-Every condition, ailment, misfortune, memory loss and accident was attributed to the fact that you didn't eat something.
-Your grandparent's furniture was as comfortable as sitting on plastic. Wait!!!! You were sitting on plastic

and my two most FAVOURITE dot points.

-You thought that talking loud was normal.
-Your mom's main hobby is cleaning

hahaha! it really made me Laugh out Loud.

So todays post is going to be focused on little bit of my family or familia as i like to call it :)  First off Im European, the only thing that makes me Australian is well i was born here haha! other than all European! And love everything about it

My dad was born in Belguim, Brussels and my mum well she was born in Mozumbique, Africa BUT back then it was a Portuguese yup shes portuguese!..... So you guess it! my dad comes from the land of the BEST CHOCOLATE! (mm belgian chocolate)and well my mum comes from the land of the BEST FOOD EVER aka NANDOS but nando's aint got NOTHING on my Grandfathers "real portuguese style chicken" lol (TO DIE FOR)....We grew up with huge festivities, huge families and family friends well who are basically just family anyways and of course the FOOOD! the food is probably both a pro and con in my life, its a PRO because it is soooooo YUMMM but its a CON because i just eat way to much then i should eat haha. My brother and i have pretty much just taken on my mums nationality and call ourselves PORTUGUESE lol i dont speak it tho :( except for certain things (naughty words LOL) but i still say im portuguese haha!

Im very very LUCKY to have a great parents, they have always been so supportive and encouraging with everything ive decided to do with my life, they are just amazing. My little bro, well he isnt to bad haha nah he is good we do have our differences and because we are 6 yrs apart it was a pain in the arse growing up BUT now we have a cool relationship....  My mum is a perfect example of a European mother, instead of cooking a meal that will feed a family she cooks for a freaking army, i have not EVER witnessed a time when my mum cooks, that there wasnt leftovers, basically if we dont have leftovers somethings wrong! hahaha. Her excuse is, well if there isnt any leftovers your still HUNGRY! My grandma (mum's mum) is the same, my dad in fact blames my mum and grandma for eating to much and putting on weight haha and when i think about do i!!! :P:P Now my dad is a chef too soo whoever cooks  w are gonna have a good meal lol.

I love learning about everyones different cultures and traditions, in our family we have quite alot of traditions, for eg. Most people open their presents early in the morning Christmas Day, and all celebrations are then too. Well for us we have this MASSIVE feast and all our celebrations Christmas Eve and open our presents right on the dot of MIDNIGHT, i used to love it when i was a kid, we would have someone dress up as Santa and all the adults would have bells (symbolising reindeers lol) haha good times! we dont do that much anymore bcoz we have no kids in the family day ;) haha...but it is good because when we decide to have kids, its not going to be hard who is going to spend christmas day with who...its simple! Christmas Eve with my family and Christmas Day with Williams family...GENIUS! haha...We also have tradional foods we cook for different occasions...i love xmas in the Pollaert/Da Silva household! ♥ Also on new yrs we have 12 sultarna's on the lead up to the count-down (dont know why ive actually never asked but we always do it haha)

Now the reason ive decided to talk about my family is well my mum came back on the weeked from a 5 week holiday (jealous) from Portugal! I was looking through all her photos and of course i was also going though the massive amounts of stuff she brought back for my brother and i aswell haha! but the photos she took just made me sad bcoz i dont see my family often as they all live in Darwin. Now, my grandparents brought up my parents beautifully and now my parents have brought my brother and I up pretty much the same way...(minus being in Europe of course haha) so i thank them for making my parents so great! My Grandmother in Darwin (mum's mum) who i call Avó, is probably the best cook EVER in this world! i know, i know,  pretty much everyone says that about their grandmothers but im not lieing! she is the BEST! and lucky for me my mum is just like her and is the BEST COOK aswell!  I suppose im next in line haha goodluck to me! She is also the most caring, loving person i know and i love her with all my heart and i miss her everyday! And then theres my grandfather who i call Avô who is probably the most funniest person i know, and im his favourite Grandchild because we both support the same soccer team...Sporting Lisbon! (boo to all Benfica lovers lol) but he is also the infamous Portuguese Chicken when i first took William to Darwin he was abit scepticle..and i kept insisting..its the BEST! and he kind of didnt believe me until he tried it and yupp you guessed it...he admited it was the BEST!!
Now as for my Dads family well Grandmammy aka grummy for short lol (dad's mum) is the cutest grandma ever! she is also where i get my artistic side from ;) and also where i get my evilness from when i play cards! haha She sometimes thinks shes "hip" when she starts dancing after a bit too many drinks lol and makes the best ever cherry pie mmm...Grandpappy aka grumpy for short haha (he sometimes lives up to the name :P) is also mr. comedian! just like Avô, when they are together we are all it fits of laughter! Grumpy is the best! and i never ever see him without a "tea" (what he calls beer lol) in his hand.

To be honest with you this blog post just doesnt do justice of how wonderful my family very greatful...ive always lived for family! and one day i will take on everything they have taught me and pass on all the traditions, stories and love to my lil family i have one day :)

Family is Forever.
