Happy Fri-Yay my Fun Friends!
Not sure if you saw my haiku I shared on my new Facebook Page The Unique Times with Cindy and Instagram but here it is in case you missed it:
don’t burst my bubble
life’s surprises to be shared
let’s do it again❣️
How fun was this?❣️❣️❣️
We had just come from a celebration of life so we were feeling a little weepy and nostalgic. Those so called happy celebrations are also sad as well, realizing the finality of the relationship as you knew it.
My husband said let’s get dinner and bring it home and we stumbled on this “Progressive” Indian restaurant called Rooh on University Ave to be exact. I never or should say rarely drink alcohol before 6:30 or 7 p.m. but for some reason I asked him for something refreshing while we waited.
He brought me The GOA COOLER and assured me it would not be too sweet and I’d say he was pretty much on the money. My husband LOVED it and so did I but if it had one more drop of sweetness it would have been too much for me.
The secret weapon turns out is the Smoke Gun with The Flavor Blaster from London, so if you’re from the UK it’s probably no surprise to you, but we’ve never seen it before so our eyes were big as saucers. Even my daughter who is a bartender on Monday nights was impressed saying “oh we are so getting that at our restaurant”. You can read everything about it here in this great article.
I highly agree with this “Bartenders love that it gives the customer something extra, like mixology theater,” says Myers. “I think you’ll find more and more people trying to push the envelope. A lot of cocktail folks say it’s fun.”
Have you guys seen this before?
On a not so fun note:
All of my family are Giants fans and have been glued to the T.V. for the 5 game series so you can imagine their upset after the loss last night. S.F. “hates” L.A. and I don’t quite get it as I grew up in S.F. liking the Dodgers for some reason. My husband and kids get so mad saying “we don’t know what’s wrong with you”. I honestly am not a fan but a fan of them, so I sit through it while I do other things. Besides, they are awfully entertaining. They said it’s in our DNA to “hate” the Dodgers; it’s like the Red Socks and the Yankees. Maybe some on you can relate to this but the cats and I have to leave when it gets too loud and Hunter just barks with them.
Giants bubble burst
disgruntled Bay Area
check swing cheap call ump!
I’m not sure if you remember my daughter’s date with the “coyote wrangler” I set her up with and then he went MIA but he actually did text her 3 weeks later saying Happy Birthday but she never texted back. My son also saw him riding his bike so we know he’s not on the survival game or with the Hunter Warden as far as I know. She hadn’t texted him back as of the last time we talked but curious minds are dying to know but I’m doing my best of staying out of it.
New Facebook Page: The Unique Times with Cindy
You may have noticed I have a new Facebook Page specifically for my writing called The Unique Times with Cindy. I wanted a way to share my writing with the world since I’m so passionate about it and this was highly encouraged my friend Eric from Game Plan Digital. I would really appreciate if you would be so kind as to check out my page and give it a like to help spread the word. Then you can see some of my sneak preview images and videos that I will be blogging about on occasion before the post even comes out! And as always, if things look off in any way, I would really love your feedback which I have grown to count on and is invaluable to me. Thank you so much!
Have a Fun Fri-Yayyyy and wonderful weekend whatever you do!!!!
LOL!!!! You’re in good company in my house.. 🤣🤣🤣
That looks like one hell of a drink- no, the bubble Ofcourse! I thought it was dry ice in the first look but well, that’s because I’ve never heard of that gun before. It sure does look exciting! Happy Fridayyy!! 💖
I’m soooo laughing and you are soooo right. Yes, it looks like dry ice when it explodes Sam! Now I wonder what chemicals are in it? Yikes.. I’m not gonna think about it.. haahaha.
Happy Fri-Yayyyy to you too my friend!💖
This is great, thank you for the video. You are wonderful
oh I’m sooo glad you liked it Luke! 💖💖💖 T.Y.
You are wonderful too!💖
💖💖💖 Nice weekend for you
Thank you so much and to you!💖
Never seen before, seems fun! 😃
Have a great weekend my friend 🍻😘
Soooo Fun! Thanks and you do the same Manuel 1💖💖
What a lovely drinks from your Indian chef!!
Yes Joanna, It was sooo wonderful!
Thanks for your visit always.
You’re welcome and have a wonderful weekend!💖
Happy Friyay, Cindy. I sure did love this post. That cocktail intrigued me so much, I have never seen anything like it and am so curious now…lol. Congratulations on your FB page, I will make sure I find and follow you next time I am on FB. Have a wonderful week.💕❤️💕
Happy Sat ur Yayyy to you now Grace.. I wondered where you were.. lol. Kept looking for you and was out with the phone and it didn’t come through there. I know isn’t it the bomb! 🤣 Me either. Oh thanks a lot, I appreciate it.. It seems like one more thing to manage but I’m trying to be a good “student”. We’re always students too. I’m off for a hike.. gonna be a scorcher today. you do the same.. xoxoxxo 💖
Will do. My pleasure , Cindy.💕❤️💕
Go Phillies ☝🏼😉
I don’t remember that bubble drink from my time in London! It does look rather exciting though…
I’m not on FB anymore but did you say you’re on Instagram too? What’s your @address? ❤️😊❤️
I wondered if you had seen it or not. Let’s hope it’s not toxic -:(
You’re smart I’m sure… lol.
I have to look it up… hahah. I’ll send later.💕
I think it’s ahamoments unless it’s just my name cindygeorgakas. oh bother.. how am I gonna do all of this?!! 💖
😅 you’ll get there 💪
Cheers Cindy 🥂… It’s nice you tried some Indian dishes and drinks .. next time try “Fenny” from Goa 😁
Fyi “Rooh” meaning “Soul” in Hindi/Urdu ☺️
Thanks Joe! Ok I will …. Is it sweet? Remember I don’t like too sweet. This is my edge.
Oh sooo wonderful to know the meaning is Soul. No wonder I loved the place!!!💕💗
Fenny or Feni is not sweet.. it’s alcohol made from fermenting and distilling cashew fruit … it’s very tasty and has a nice cashew aroma to it . “Cazulo” (literally means “from cashew” in Konkani, official language of Goa and my mother tongue) is one of many good brands of Feni. 😁😋😋
1. and if you are in Goa … Never miss fresh Urak. Urak, is brewed from ripe cashew apple. It is the first distillation of the cashew apple. For the uninitiated, the second distillation is feni. Unlike feni, urak does not give a stinging whiff.
2.Also you should also try ”
Cabo” coconut white rum from Goa.
3. Also don’t forget the Goan sausage or chorise. 😋😋😋
Goa is an amazing place 🌴🌊🏖️⛱️🍹🍸🥂💃🕺.. you should have it in your “Places I visit before ..” list
wow Joe… You are full of information and thanks for that. It’s going in my notes. I will have to go look up Goa.. I had no idea it was a place. I will go look all of this up. I will be drinking more special drinks for awhile it looks. 🤣🤗🥰 Thanks my friend! 🌷
What a fun drink
It really is Sarah!!!💕🌺
Looks like that was a fun night out. 😃
I’m not on Facebook, but good luck with your new page. 🥳
It was sooo fun… I kind of want one of those bubble guns. Lol.
You’re smart … thanks I’m just “trusting” the younger generation… we shall see-:)💕🌹
Lol… they do look entertaining. Could be great fun for parties. 😃
SOOOO Fun.. It would be but I never have parties these days except for the fam. Maybe an excuse to have one,. 🤷♀️🥰
Oh definitely… take plenty of pictures if you do. 🍹😉
I will and I’ll send them to you direct so we don’t bore the masses.. hahahaha 💖
Ha ha… yes!! 😅
Well Dear Cindy That Surely
Is A Tall Glass of Indian Bubbly
i Had No Idea The GOA COOLER
Exists Yet Here in the Florida Panhandle
The Dance Bar i Used to Entertain Seville
Quarter Serves A World Renown “Flaming Hurricane”
Will Admit i Never Had
One and Now i Can’t
Even Do Caffeine
i tend to be
With SMiLes of
Nirvana and Bliss
And ALL The Natural Such As THaT Hehe
At First i thought that was as Goblet With
A Glass Dome Yet come to Find out it is
Really Smoke After the Mirror Hehe With
A Touch of a Tongue to Release The Bulb
From Holding Sweet Smoke Within i’m Sure
It Was Deliciously Refreshing as of course they
Say it Never Rains in California Which Means
Quenching Your Thirst too and i’m Sure You Don’t
Need Any Flaming Drinks There of Course Literally
Of Wildfires of All types
Springing Out of Balance
Here And There and Over There…
Anyway Looks Like Fun Days to Celebrate
Now the Best Ones Of All And Good Fortune
To Your Daughter For Securing Romance That Lasts
It Still Happens
Still Roam Free
Out of the
Might Stay in And
Do Everything We Do
Never Even Leaving to Breathe
Nice to See You Out And about Free..:)
I know that was sooo cool.
I didn’t know what the heck was going on when it came my way either.
“Yet come to Find out it is
Really Smoke After the Mirror Hehe With”
Off for a hike to beat the 80 degree weather today… it’s so crazy.., we so need the rain! 🌷
Have a great weekend my friend!
SMiles Thanks Dear
Cindy Just Back
From A Fall
Finally True too🤗🙌☺️

I’ve never seen the Goa Cooler thing before. It looks like a blast! It would be great if the vapor came with an alcoholic kick as well as a flavor. Thanks for sharing this. 😃😄😍
Totally cool I know John and a blast at that. I guess there is a bit of alcohol in it but not too much..at 18 bucks a pop one would think so right?! you’re welcome and thanks for the visit my friend! 💖
Happy Fri-Yay FunDay girlfriend. 🥳 First of all, you look fabulous on your date night! I have never seen anything like this Goa Cooler before. That looks like oodles of fun! What a fun and different type of experience this was my friend. I applaud that! 👏🏼 Continue to explore new FunDay things throughout the week Cindy!

Well, that is new! Cute video. 🤩 Happy Friday, Cindy, and cheers to you and yours! 🥂
I know totally and thanks .. glad you liked the video which surprised me too. Happy Fri Yay and Saturday now Michele and cheers to you too! 💖
Thank you! 💐
Hahaha. I could watch you burst that bubble a million times. Awesomeness. I’ve never seen that bubble machine thing 🤣before. Wild. Congrats on the new FB page. I will be sure to check it out soon! Ahhhhh. Well, as I grew up in LA, I’m a Dodger fan, yet I have no ill feelings about the Giants. As a kid, maybe, yet not today, though I do understand the concept well. Normal. Alright, much love to you, my friend. Have a lovely evening and weekend! 🥰❤️🥰
🤣🤣🤣 So glad you enjoyed it so much Jeff!! I sooo agreed and I could go back a million times and can’t wait to take someone and share it but now everyone can see it so it’s not much of a surprise.. hahahaha.. so Fun.. now i want one. Oh thanks Jeff! You know, not sure if it’s a good thing or a bad thing but separating my writing from my bus I guess. You probs understand it all better that me. Thanks tons for checking it out. Oh I loved the dodgers. Yes, of course you were true Blue as you should have been. I have a fun story I’ll have to share maybe.. . Much love to you on Saturday and have a great day my friend.. xo 💖
Hahahaha…wait, what, maybe, share a story?? Hahahaha….edge of my seat. 🤣🤣 Anyway, I did love it, and am excited for your new ventures. Have a gorgeous Saturday. Much love to you too, dearest Cindy. 🥰❤️
you are soooo funny… oh it’s not sooo big but maybe bloggable 😹 long story short. My mom worked at the bank at the Fairmont Hotel and lots of stars came in and she got lots of autographs for me. One of which was Bobby Bonds.. One day Barry, his son was at my house and in my gym ( we trained together as friends) and saw his dads pic on my wall.. it was wild actually because what were the chances I’d a had that.. so maybe there explains my love of the Dodgers at such a young age. You are 2 cute. Thanks for the love and back at you my friend. 💖💖💖💖
Ahhhhh! What a cool story! Thank you for sharing it with me. You are amazing! Go blue! Hahahaha. 🤣🤣 Thanks for the love. Have a beautiful evening! ❤️❤️❤️
well it’s really cool the way i remember it in my head. now here’s the deal… Bobby apparently never played for the Dodgers.. lol. so I said “they why did I love them so much”.. oh now I’m feeling the heat around here as blue plays red.. 🤣🤣🤣 Go blue 🤣🤣🤣🌷Happy evening to you too. xo 💖
Thank you for sharing the FUN, Cindy! It surely put a smile on my face.
Never heard of a Smoke Gun, but what an innovative way to burst your own bubble AND still get a laugh out of it 🙂
Have a happy weekend!
You’re so welcome Pat and thanks for checking in. So glad you enjoyed it. It’s so fun to have new innovative things to laugh about alright! 💖💖🌷 Exactly! I should change the title. lol 💖
Indian restaurant? So cool. Both gun and drink seem interesting. What a fun, Cindy! Happy Friyay!! Have a great weekend 🎉😊💐💖
It was but no one from India says that they have seen it.. 🤣🤣🤣 It was surely fun KK. Thanks and happy weekend to you my friend!💖
Cindy, you look sharp in the blue and white jacket! Does that qualify as a Nehru jacket? I hope you had a great time. I saw the brief note about Coyote wrangler. He missed his window of opportunity. If you snooze, you lose. Have a great weekend. Keith
Awwww thanks so much Keith. Ya know I got it in New York several years ago from a chain called Desigula (or something like that) based in Spain. It was just a moment of surprise which doesn’t happen often enough so I just loved it. I believe you’re right.. and I so love the term you gave him.. 🤣. Happy weekending to you too Keith!💖
Cindy, sometimes clothes will strike your fancy, maybe because of the look or feel or some nostalgic sense. There is a cute commercial where a granddaughter sees a picture of her grandmother when she was younger wearing these leopard print framed sunglasses. So, the granddaughter designs a new pair online and her grandmother is thrilled once again with her nostalgic gift. Now that is deja vu. Keith
I so much agree and I love that deja bu commercial you are describing but I haven’t seen it before. So cute! 💖💖
Great haikus and photos, Cindy. A fun cultural experience. <3 Have a great weekend!
Thanks Cheryl!!! It was sooooo much fun. Little treasures..I will and you too my friend! 💖
Your posts make me happy!! GO GIANTS!!! 🏈
You are so cute! Thanks and I’m sooo glad..
You are a fan! too bad they are toast now.. 🤣💖
Looks like it was a smokey blast.
🤣❤️😎 It so was Tim!!!!!❣️
How cool and fun!
Also – weird about the date guy – 3 weeks later? Are you kidding me?
Also also – wait, so the FB will have the same content as the blog? (*confused*)
I know it really was David!
Yeah, 3 weeks is a long time right?
We said well, you could have just said H.B. a week and a half later but not sure she ever did.
Well, the idea is I THINK, I share a pic on FB that I will then give details about on by blog post.
( I’m a bit confused too to tell you the truth). The idea is is to get more people reading my writing and see what the algorithms are etc.
Let me know if it feels like overkill if you would be so kind. 💖
I’m not on FB so I’m not your target audience 🙂 – I’ll stick to following you here on WP <3
You are a smart man… lol.. I’m just going with the kids ideas for now… 🤣 I’m not a fan of all of it but we shall see.. trying to stay open.
I appreciate you being here and your support and great poetry and sharing David💖🙏
Oh wowww..! It looks so beautiful dear Cinderella..! I never seen anything before like this..! I’m very curious now..! Lol..!😂 Hope you enjoyed the drink..! Have a lovely weekend dear..!💕💕💕
I know Filarance, I felt the same way and it was soooo cool! You too can own one and make drinks 🤣🤣🤣🤣 it was delicious too so that was a bonus. I will and you do the same my fun friend💖🌷
Soo much fun watching you with that wild drink .
Now I want to find that restaurant lol🤩keep sharing your light.❤️😻🤗
I know … it’s it wildly fun! You’re first on my list to take but now it’s not a surprise.. 🤣🤣 Oh thanks a lot and you do the same Marlene. 💖❤️🙏
I admit, it took me totally by surprise, Cindy, especially when you bent down to lick it. I thought “what the…” Fun. –Curt
lol Curt.. I know.. I was kinda brave now that I think about it.. hahahaha. I guess I much have gotten that it was edible. hahaha 🤣
I had never seen that bubble drink. I want to try it.
You look great! I love your jacket!
Hi Ana Star,
With all of your fancy places and drinks one would think. You have to visit and I’ll take you! Oh thanks so much my dear!!💕
I am in India and yet to see something like this here…
So wild .. thanks for sharing that woth me!💕
O wow that cloud burst was absolutely fantastic. I am planning to go to Goa with my friends this christmas. Goa is the beach party place of India with lots of beautiful churches, fresh air, and awesome beach cafes.
Wasn’t it awesome and I love the cloud burst I interpretation!!
Oh how fun !! I’m hearing great things about it! 💕🌹❤️

It really was so unexpected which made it so fun Dwight. Thanks so much. Glad you liked my haikus. 💖🌷

Omg that drink was so cool! Also that guy sounds like a kind of flaky person so maybe your daughter did the right thing not replying.
i know soooo cool… highlight. yeah i think you’re right…u snooze u loose!
Yup she can do better!
Yes indeed.. you’re a good cheerleader.. thanks so💖💖💖
You’re right on!🙏👍🏼
Looking so damn gorgeous Cindy 😍 The drinks so cool, the bubble must be so fun to burst 😅 Don’t like the sound of that guy but I am quite curious though what possibly is going on in his head 🤔
And you are so damn cute Daphny! Thank you so much my friend. It was soooo good. I know right and if my daughter would text me back we could here if she ever texted back or not. It’s soooo perplexing!🤷♀️
Aww thank you so much and you’re very welcome 🤗❣️
Do let us know what happened and the all the why’s when you get hold of it 😅😁

Oh, that looked like fun!
The bubbie is so cool – and I am going to read about it with the link you added
Sending condolences for the loss of a loved one!
And congrats on the new FB page
– just curious as to why you decided to use that platform for the writing?
Wasn’t it the best?! It was really fun.
Thats so kind of you and I appreciate your kind hearted wishes.
We shall see… it’s a wait and see process.
You know…. IDK lol. I have a friend of the kids that thinks I should separate out my personal and bus from my writing page. I’m just going with it for now and going with the flow. Thoughts? 🙏💖
