Counting My Serendipity Moments Until Christmas #2

And I Am Counting My Serendipity Moments Until
Christmas #1

… the first moment on my Christmas Serendipity Moments List is my stepping into a pastry shop.

I am posting it as the second. But it was, my first!

A few weeks ago, I went to pay a visit to a couple of dear Lady friends, owners of a shop for kids.

The concept of the shop is the first steps of the newborn and the first years of their life.

I couldn’t have gone empty-handed.

At first, I dropped by a pastry shop of tradition, renowned on the market.

My eyes couldn’t liaise with anything there.

Or was it — my heart?

I couldn’t feel it.

Just yet.

My feet walked me there.

I approached the pastry shop opposite the Romanian Atheneum.


Happiness swam in a large cup of tea... 

As I approached the window shop, my eyes were caught up by a lineup of Choux A La Creme.

One of them had raspberries on it.

Drawn to it, I kindly asked the seller to describe its ingredients.

All I could hear:

"The cream of this one is with water of roses and the one, by its side, is with jasmine flavor."

Uh, la, la! Jasmine creme? In a cookie?

That very instant, the world stopped for me.

And -- I was surrounded by petals of roses and fragrant jasmine.

My dearest, I ask you: what were the odds for me, a Damascene, to enter a pastry shop I don’t usually go to, at least not to buy cakes, and stumble into water of roses and jasmine cakes, in the very heart of Bucharest?


Serendipity, baby, serendipity!

And I am back Home, in the Garden of my Darling Damascus — the Capital of Jasmine and verily, my Oasis of Roses.

Hence bearing the fragrance of Her… the taste of Her… the box containing 3 Pavlova cakes — a first for me, and water of roses choux a la creme cakes in the palms of my hands, I saw to my way.

And I am on the road… making the last steps of this year.

Thank you, Ladies, for the good laughs&gags session and as always, for the wonderful time!
