Warsaw Palace of Culture Sala Kongresowa; Thank you muzzer for the photos!

So what’s with the glasses, eh?* According to this dame here it should seem that I’m on a man-repelling agenda but no, if I had that kind of social fluency I wouldn’t be living with 18 diseased cats. No, I’m allergic to cats, and I have a boyfriend – that guy standing behind me, that’s him. I keep telling him to move out of the frame but apparently he’s not up for long-distance relationship just yet. One of the Chopin Music Academy students in our church was picked to perform with 9 top tenors in Poland, and of course I had to make an appearance. I feel sorry for the concert hall staff for having to install all the red seats in my honour.

Wow the blurb is getting lamer by the post. I blame diseased cat #4. OK SHUTTING UP.

*Forgot my contacts in London is all.

    I was tickled that all the photographs have a colour theme running through them. Red, blue, and soft warm yellow. Is it your graphic design tendencies shining through?
    Definitely inspiring me to photograph everything. You can make the most un-fashion related stuff fashionable. x

  10. I really like the shirt you’re wearing, the galactic print on it is so cool, and you match it really nicely with the red pants.

  12. I couldn’t understand the title of the post though I’m Polish. I thought “Gala” is a name and “Tenerow” is a surname. Hahah, so funny :) (you should write “TenOrow”, not “TenErow”)

  13. @Marilyn I think this is the first time in my life a person says the she loves the architecture of the building, namely the Palace of Culture and Science that Sala Kongresowa is a part of :) But on the other hand people either love it or hate it. It is a very strange, ugly building but, at least from my point of view, so rooted in the Warsaw center landscape that I do not imagine the situation I get out of the Central Station and it is not there.
    And it’s really worth visiting. You may discover other places besides Sala Kongresowa!
    Cool colour combo Shini!:)

    Haha yah, there’s a saying where the happiest Poles are those who work inside the Palace of Culture because they don’t see it from the outside. The building reminds the Polish of the communist times because it was a gift from Stalin ;) Right Karo?

  20. Here I am… feeling all sorry for you that you aren’t in London… and really you are just going around to fancy shmancy events like this?! Having red seats laid out in your honour…?! Sheeesh.

    Beautiful photos and such an honour for the person at your church! Loving your outfit with all the bold colours! I guess stealing Burberry coats is one plus of being back home…?

    p.s. your boyfriend looks hot.

  21. Cute boyfriend! ;)
    Well, installing the red seats it was the least they could do. What about the red carpet? Do they forget that?=)
    Seriously, beautiful photos! Love the outfit, especially the blue trench.

  22. I am such a keen follower of your blog! The pictures are always beautiful, your style so origional and the ‘blurbs’…! Always hilarious. Thanks for it all!
    I hope you have the time to visit my humble abode… I will keep on being inspired by Park and Cube until I get there!
    God bless,

  23. I can see the Palace of Culture from my bedroom window and it looks quite good from such distance, especially in the dark, while so colorful. It looks like a mermaid’s tail.

  27. The Palace of Culture looks so beautiful in these pictures! I like that place, I used to attend batik classes there. And i like the contrast between that building and modern sky scapers and shopping centres surrounding it. I couldn’t imagine Warsaw without that weird brown block in its heart, haha.
    By the way, I love your galaxy print body!

    I <3 your glasses. Makes you look like a female Harry Potter, which I think is a very high compliment indeed! Not a man repellent by any means!

    Just out of curiosity – what church do you attend in London? Do they have many services?

  36. Hey there outstanding blog! Does running a blog such as this take a great deal of
    work? I’ve no knowledge of computer programming but I was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyways, if you have any recommendations or tips for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off topic but I just wanted to ask. Cheers!

  38. It’s perfect time to make a few plans for the longer term and it is time to be happy. I’ve
    learn this post and if I may I desire to recommend you few interesting things or tips.

  39. Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m
    planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to
    ask!
