About Me

They call me “Maria” here in Switzerland. It’s my first name in Deutsch, the national language in my part of the country, so fine. Maria… Maria Clara. The epitome of a Filipino woman in Jose Rizal’s Noli Me Tangere. Unlike her, I’m never easily fainted or delicate. I aim to keep myself towards change even if it means relocating and leaving a profession which ideals I so care about. After all, life is a series of adventures and every adventure is worthwhile.

    hi there maria πŸ™‚
    it’s nice to see another blogger living in switzerland.

    Ah, my tongue is enough twisted with new Deutsch words. I can’t seem to pronounce “Ich” & other “ch” words well. Haha… But they say practice makes perfect, so be it. Good luck to me (to us). Have you practiced enough long? Thanks for dropping by, Grinsi πŸ™‚

    oh for me it’s not so hard with the ch… πŸ˜‰ i was born here, my parents were born here, my great-great-great grand parents were already born here… i’m a real swiss ‘girl’ πŸ˜‰
    but yes, i’d say the same, practice, practice, practice…. i work with guys who only now learn german and i always have to correct them so they learn it. but that’s good if people correct you, that’s how you can really learn it πŸ˜‰
    you could always visit me if you’re interested in some free german lessons :p or rather want to help me with my english which is pretty awful if i have to speak 😦

      nice meeting you here in wordpress, Grinsi πŸ™‚ so you speak Swiss-German, that is another tongue for me to hurdle. but first things first, that is learn High German. I would love to help you polish your English (& you help me with my German ;-)). perhaps we can use Skype, and later, the phone, if you want.
