When the time came, Lucia and other characters showed up with candle lights and beautiful singing voices. They sung Christmas and Lucia songs on the stage. The performance was very visionary.

Is it a three-time or a four-time beat in waltz and how many small steps do you take in foxtrot? Don’t you worry! Read more

Being an ambassador at that time, I participated in the creating of many different, fun and sometimes also very craving events. One of them happens to be the International Food Fair which we brought into life the first time in fall 2012. Read more
