About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I HOST CHEFS/ DANCERS/ MARTIALS ARTISTS ONLY !!!

ABOUT ME

I believe everyday is a new miracle, so I don't waste my time worrying! I try to get the maximum fun out of it!
I LOOOOVE dancing! (especially Latin dances)
It helps me also spend my Hyper-activity! (U have been warned!)
I travel a lot because I love discovering new places & people with different perspectives. These places & people moulded who I'am now! That's why I consider myself a world citizen & i'am always a bit embarrased when someone ask me where I'am from! ;-)

PHILOSOPHY

Home is where the Heart is, but I prefer to go where the Fun is! ;-) (U can quote me on this one! lol)
Don't worry! Be happy!
The World is wide and Life is short.
An other World is possible
If U want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself & make a change
Karma is watching U...
Everything is a matter of perspectives
Better stand-up, fight & fall than crouch & watch things happen
