Yes of course, I’m practicing it very often.

Every disadvantage can become a advantage, it is depending on what you do with it. For example, in primary school I was the tallest of all the girls and boys in the classroom. I didn’t like it. It was a disadvantage but became an advantage in my modeling career. In terms of beauty, when people see me they may quickly put me in a box. But when they meet me I get my way out of the box. Beauty for me became a tool to open doors. Embrace all the gifts you get from life they are there for a reason.

There was no warning at all. Everything happened within seconds. First i heard people screaming and then the whole bungalow which i was in with my partner started to crumble from the tsunami waves.

Thanks for your message on the proof, I already sent it to Reddit :) feel free to check my twitter:

it is hot in the morning, hotter during the day, and hottest at night. And the bikinis just get smaller and smaller. Go on and take a chance to see for yourself ;)

We cannot control nature but we can prepare and protect ourselves with knowledge of how to recognize natural disasters and what to do when they happen. That has proven to often lifesaving.

the movie was done in a very real and honest way. The first half of the movie was exactly like my experience even the same hotel and the same beach. It really described the power of nature and at the same time the power of compassion.

Ahoj jak se dari? I think probably in US as I stayed away in Press in Czech Republic for a long time. Only when the Tsunami happened that is when czech wanted to know about me.
