another childhood memory

So a few weeks ago i told you about the smurf candy, the other day me and friend went to the Stockholm archipelago and guess what i found!
Another childhood treat! ^^

Zig Zag ^^
Me and my brother used to love this when we were younger! it was more than double the price we paid back then but what the~ ^^

Today's quote

"Sometimes a smile can change EVERYTHING"


When unni came to visit she introduced me to a smartphone application, and so far I LOVE it ^^
It's called TANGO and with wifi you can make free phone calls ^^
Then... what's the difference between Skype and Viber, not much, but this one has video call + chat (like skype) but it goes through the phone so u don't need a skype account.
Also the line is really good, so this is my new fave application, which helps me keep in touch with my friends all over the world, and now also my family since I'll be heading to Canada for 5 months!

If you haven't tried it... download it ;)

12,5 h to go...

So I got 12,5 h left before I leave Sweden!! It feels unreal, It feels like yesterday I found out I got the spot for Canada!!
These past weeks have been quite busy, after I came back from Denmark I was sick so that also took some time. Anyway tomorrow is it!!
I think I got most stuff packed, soon it's time to sleep ^^

Mexican food

So for my final dinner before leaving Sweden for Canada is here, my brother took me out and treated me to Mexican food!

I want to eat more but I'm so full ^^

Best ending of 2012 in Sweden!

Final day!

Only one day to go, my final day in Sweden, before i leave for Canada!
it's so strange, and i have so many things to do!

but first I'm off to lunch with my mum! ^^

Why be like everybody else?

Wednesday, 29 August 2012


I haven't been to the museum for 5 years, so it was interesting to see it again, they had changed quite a bit!

Final sightseeing

Today it is the final day~ Unnis final day in Sweden!
We had a good sleep and went straight for lunch.
We met up with mum and had pizza, Sarah unni had read online that Swedish pizza is really good ^^

it was good!
i don't eat pizza often, second time this year ^^, i have to say it was delicious ^^

Another sightseeing day

So today we stayed in Stockholm city and explored the city, that we did with a major visit to the Royal Palace, sightseeing around the streets of Gamla stan and Söder ^^

Hillsong Stockholm

Today Sarah unni came to Sweden, so we decided to go to church, and as Sarah unni do not speak Swedish we needed to go somewhere where they also had an English sermon.
So we went to Hillsong!

we had a great time! ^^
I think i might join them when i come back to Sweden from Canada!

Live your life!!!

Resting at home

So today i have done nothing, i have tried to clean but that's it!
i feel lazy, still i do not know what to do...
i leave next week, and tomorrow Sarah unni comes for a short visit..donno if it was a smart choice, since I'm leaving soon, still i haven't seen her for 2 years!!

i guess i worry too much, or others worry for me~

Hakuna Matata ^^

24h tv

As i have been waiting, its finally here~ 24h tv with Arashi!
To be honest, what i most look forward to is the drama starring Nino and the letter reading~ I wonder who it will be this time ^^

Kinda weird too, Last year i was in Japan when they broadcasted the show, time flies!

Farewell dinner

So i went to unni's house to have a farewell dinner, as i leave for Canada next week.

she cooked donkatsu, salad, miso soup and ddeokbokki ^^

we had a really nice dinner and fun girltalks~

YA unni and JH unni also came, so it was a very nice dinner! ^^

So i went to the gym, spent quite some time there, i ran on a crosstrainer for 60min! and did some other exercise.

Finally back home, had a litter bit of food, but not too much as I'm going to unni's house for dinner in 1.5h ^^

Time to get changed ^^

Birthday present

Today i met with Hanna a final time before Canada, and she gave me a wonderful present!
a Rilakuma teddy ^^
she bought it for me in Hong Kong, isn't it cute? ^^



So my friend just uploaded this photo on facebook and i just had to share it, it's hilarious ^^
It's a Japanese sign...for you who wonder! ^^

I wanna say Thanks for the heads up when reading it XD

Correct English would be, Warning (Danger) - do not enter! (^_-)


Today i went to see my dads 92 year old aunt for lunch and coffee.
She hasn't been well for some time but she seems to get better~
i haven't seen her for a long time and this was the last time before leaving for Canada!

We went out for lunch, to a place close to her house.
I ended up having some salmon and potato, typical Swedish food?! ^^

it was a nice afternoon, we also went for a walk and afterwards we had a long talk at her house and had coffee.

I think she really enjoyed it ^^
I did, just it was a bit tiring to shout a lot, as she doesn't hear well...

嵐 - 証

I like this new slow "ballad" from Arashi, this was the theme song for the 2012 London Olympics!
I wonder when it will be released!? ^^

ロンドン五輪 テーマソング 嵐 『証』

あの日 僕は夢をただ追いかけながら
がむしゃらに この日をただ見つめた
どこまでも行ける どこへでも行ける
ここに秘めた勇気を 今この刹那に
遠く誓った景色が あの頃のまま
一人重ねて 空を目指したんだろう
誰もが届かないもの この手なら掴めると
どこまでも どこまでも
ずっと描き続けた 夢を

あぁ あふれだす力 超えてゆく心
遥か 戦いのステージ
限界の向こうで 歓喜(よろこび)の叫びを
あの日 あの追いかけた場面が

僕はまだ見ぬ明日 この道を
歩き続けて行こう 自分を信じて

高鳴る魂 突き動かすだろう
偽りのない鼓動が いま時を刻むように
いつまでも いつまでも

あぁ あふれだす力超えてゆく心

自分さえ超えて 羽ばたけ

あぁ あふれだす力 超えてゆく心
遥か 戦いのステージ
限界の向こうで 歓喜(よろこび)の叫びを
あの日 あの追いかけた場面が

After a long day at the spa we went out for dinner, in the end we tried a new Asian place, i had some spicy beef, it wasn't spicy at all but it was good ^^

Still cannot understand why i was so hungry, i mean we sat in a sauna, bubblepool etc~ still felt like i had been at the gym all day ^^

3,5 h sleep

So i have no idea why i couldn't fall asleep last night so i only got 3.5h last night, so guess how tired i am right now..
i also managed to forget some stuff that should have had been in my bag!

right now I'm sitting at the train station waiting for the train to Örebro!
Today I'm off seeing Elisabet whom i haven't seen for over a year~
it kinda sucks when you live in different cities!
On today's agenda is relax, spa and hang out ^^

Soon time for departure! ^^

I love Psy's latest Gangnam Style, and here is a parody of the song, named Byuntae style - which means pervert style ^^ its hilarious, watch it ^^



As Dr Jin ended this is the drama that takes over their slot time, it looks interesting and I love both Han Ji-Hye and Kim Jae-Won so I think it will be an interesting drama.
I also know a few of the child actors however cannot wait until the "grown-ups" take over.
I'm also kinda surpised that it will be 32 episodes!! I mean Dr Jin was only 22 and it was an historical drama...

Felt like dying

So I finally after 2 weeks absence from the gym, I found my way back..
However to run those 7,5km I managed to do felt like a dying!! I'm surprised I managed to run 7,5 to be honest since I felt like dying already at 2km!!

I also walked to and back from the gym and my t-shirt was soaked when I came home ^^

I don't have lot of time left before Canada now!! it feels scary yet fun...

We try again

So last time i walked around the lake i fell off the road and injured my leg!
As I'm back for the last time before my travel to Canada i decided to try to walk around it again without falling! ^^
Today is hot and humid!
and i did not fall off the road this time! ^^

Den som dræber - Fortidens skygge

I found this movie when I was in Denmark, I followed the tv-drama and loved it!! So I guess I just had to buy it since it doesn't seem it will be out in Sweden for a while. And when it will be released I'll probably be in Canada!!
What can I say, I'll miss them all...
And it was fun to see Simon Kvamm, I used to watch him alot during my junior-high and high school days, however I'm more used to his comical acts and singing!!
The movie was different from what I expected, not as dark as the tv-drama and a surprising end.
Still happy I saw it, guess it'd be much more awesome to see it at the cinema, but good enough with a big tv ^^

I wish it wasn't the end... but that's how it is!!


Org. title: Den som dræber - Fortidens skygge
Eng title: Those who kill - Shadow of the past

Detective Katrine Ries Jensen and legal psychiatrist Thomas Schaeffer form a special unit at the Copenhagen Police investigating serial killings. A case from Schaeffer's past crops up. As a young psychologist, he held back from sending a patient, who was manically drawing the details of a traffic accident, to a secure hospital. Now these bloody scenes resurface.

Movie night

As we are spending some quality time at the summer house this final weekend, we ended this saturday with a good Danish movie!!

I wonder why the Danes are so good at making them and.. well.. Swedes are not! (With a few exceptions)

Anyway it was a great ending to this Saturday!! I don't want it to end, but I guess I have to sleep soon as I'm dead...inside XD

So i have kinda lost interest in the Korean variety show, We got married, until today, as a new couple entered!

no one less than Julien Kang and Yoon SeAh!!

Julien's Korean is to die for, and these two makes a cute couple! i think this will be very fun to follow! ^^

House of my dream

Maybe not the ideal house to live in, but i have to say it's kinda awesome!

-Which house is yours?
-The pink Hello Kitty house down the street! ^^

Avoid the sun

my friends keepon laughing at this photo!
So do i but seriously the sun was so strong, it was burning on my face!

Dinner out

Its Friday and i met up with my cousins whom i haven't seen for 6 months. First we had dinner, then we  went to the movies!

Today's dinner Pasta with salmon ^^

Guess not

so today i was going to give blood, but i wasn't allowed since i still have a small cold, the weird thing is that i had the same last time and then it was ok, but not this time! kinda weird since its the same place and all, guess i just have to go in a week or so~

House boat

I went out for a walk the other day, as i still have a cold and is not allowed to hit the gym.
as i was walking i passed this cute house boat!!

it looks so fresh and nice, I'd like to live in it!! ^^

Birthday Lunch

Oh.. I forgot to post, my friend Sandra bought me lunch today, to celebrate my b-day ^^
We ended up at a American steakhouse close to her work, I had Chicken drumsticks with corn and french fries, she took a hamburger.
I couldn't finish the fries, it's only carbs, so it's better to eat the delicious meat and corn right ^^
In all... very tasty ^^

Thanks to my darling S for a great B-day lunch ^^

Birthday cake

So my mum asked me what kind of cake I wanted for my birthday, a home made or one from the store.

Today's quote

"Life is easy when you Make it easy! ;) "

Different breakfast

This morning I had breakfast with F oppa, I haven't seen him since..last April?! As he is working abroad.
Anyway, as usual he was late XD but when ordering breakfast I went for a normal sandwich and coffee, what did oppa get? a pastry!!!! XD

The conversation topic of today!? "What do I wanna be when I get old"
I donno why... but that's all we talked about, it kinda felt like talking to a mentor/parent XD
He got really into giving me advice and feedback on my education so far. In a way it was good too, as I have had some thoughts about upcoming semester in Canada. In the end I emailed the school there and asked them to change a class for me, so I added the Management communication, as oppa also thought would be good for me!

We also talked about life, student life vs working life.
Not that anyone can win over the other, as we did a pro and con for both! So in short... Life sucks!!
Just hope I find a good job and good collegues!

I also offered him to visit me in Canada which sounded nice, then he remembered it was cold there so he kinda rejected the offer XD instead I asked him to go with me to Korea next summer, which he jumped at in a sec ^^ He hasn't been there since 2008, so I guess it's about time ^^

I guess I needed "scolding and advice" conversation, as I normally do not talk about these things with others... also oppa is good at giving advice and is super smart ^^
And even though it was early morning (MY TIME - I'm not a morning person).. I managed to stay alert, what bothered me was the people around us who kept on staring and listen to our conversations!!!!

Summer movie night!

It started... Summer Movie nights in the park!!
Outdoor movie in one of the biggest parks in central Stockholm, to be honest I wish they'd show new movies but as it's a part to promote Stockholm Film festival, guess we cannot ask for too much!
Still it's an awesome idea, get way to get people together, have a picknick in the park then enjoy a good movie!

It was so many people when we got there but we manage to get sorta good seats!

However as the sun went down it got super cold, so I'm happy I brought my blanket with me!! ^^
it was kinda cozy and all... however my brother wasn't a fan of the movie so we left early, I could have stayed but I didn't wanna go home alone in the dark, so I went with him... ^^;;

Hope I can go on Saturday with a friend, there is a movie I really want to see ^^

Today's quote

"Even though one of the member says the truth, those who blinded by hate will think it's just a total bullshit."

Old Kpop

I came across this great song while watching Running Man last Sunday (120812), feat. Han Ji Min.
The challenge was to find her "true love"... ^^
They played this "old kpop" song from 1997, it's made by 델리스파이스 (Deli Spice) and it's called 챠우챠우 (Ciao Ciao).
The music style kinda reminds me of Oasis, Go Go Dolls and Radiohead ^^

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do...!!

We are never ever getting back together

Taylor is back with a new song... can I say FINALLY?! ^^
It's kinda different from her previous songs!!

Enjoy this break-up song... ^^

Remember when we broke up the first time
Seeing this is, and had enough, it's like
We haven't seen each other in a month
When you, said you, needed space, what?
When you come around again and say
Baby, I miss you and I swear I'm gonna change
Trust me, remember how that lasted for a day
I say, I hate you, we break up, you call me, I love you

Oooh we called it off again last night
But Oooh, this time I'm telling you, I'm telling you
We are never ever ever ever getting back together
We are never ever ever ever getting back together
You go talk to your friends talk
And my friends talk to me
But we are never ever ever ever getting back together

Like ever...

I'm really gonna miss you picking fights
And me, falling for a screaming that I'm right
And you, will hide away and find your piece of mine with some indie record that's much cooler than mine
Oooh you called me up again tonight
But Oooh, this time I'm telling you, I'm telling you
We are never ever ever ever getting back together
We are never ever ever ever getting back together
You go talk to your friends talk
And my friends talk to me
But we are never ever ever ever getting back together
I used to think, that we, were forever ever ever
And I used to say never say never
Huh, he calls me up and he's like, I still love you
And i'm like, I mean, I mean this is exhausting, you know
We are never getting back together, like ever

We are never ever ever ever getting back together
We are never ever ever ever getting back together
You go talk to your friends talk
And my friends talk to me
But we are never ever ever ever getting back together

Not getting back together, we
Oh, getting back together

You go talk to your friends talk
And my friends talk to me
But we are never ever ever ever getting back together

오빠 딱 내 스타일

The wave of Gangnam style never seems to stop.. it keepson growing and more people get the Kpop wave! As reports have been telling, Gangnam style is not only in Gangnam it's all over the world - LA Times, CNN etc!
Anyhow part two is here as promised, 오빠 딱 내 스타일 with 4Minutes HyunA!!
I love the MV concept, but I actually thought that HyunA was going to be a little bit more fierce... I think 2NE1's Minzy or CL would have had much better... even Park Bom!!
Psy oppa is hilarious also in this video ^^

Tuna sandwich!

When it comes to sandwiches my fave topping has to be tuna!
same goes for kimbap rolls XD

the other day i met up with school mates and talked. As we went to one of my fave cafes in Stockholm i just had to have their tuna sandwich!
in the end, i only ate the tuna, egg and salad, leaving the bread!! XD

...doesn't it look delicious ^^

B-day present all the way from Japan

This morning I got a surprise, not only did I wake up by the doorbell XD I also got a b-day present!!
Sayuri unni already told me about it, she'd send it but wasn't sure if it'd reach me in time for my actual b-day. Reason is that she's so busy with work so she has a hard time to get to the post office in time, I told her she didn't need to send anything however she really wanted too...

In a way Sayuri-unni is one of my best friends, even though we do not get a lot of time to meet since both of us lives in total different countries now, but we used to hang out a lot while living in S.Korea both in 2008, 2009 and 2010!!
Last year I was so happy when we met up in Tokyo!! She even managed to get a WHOLE day off work just for me, which is NOT easy in Japan!

Anyway, as I got the pressie I couldn't stop shaking it, like a child before X-mas ^^
I cannot wait until Thursday.... only 3 days left :D

Spice up ur life!!

So yesterday they came and for some reason all the memories came back, I think I was around 7 years old when I first came across Spice Girls, they totally changed my world, it was all about Girl Power, there had not been anything like them before, and I think no matter how many bands there are out in the world, there is NOT a single one who can beat the FIRST girlband!!

So today on my sick day I have been listening to old Spice girls songs... they never seem to go bad ^^

Today's quote

"If we can have the tiniest positive effect on someones day then our goal is complete!
Wishing everyone peace, love and happiness... it's the only way to live!"

It all ended in one night!!

Not only did the London Olympics come to an end, two of my Korean dramas also ended - Time slip Dr. Jin and A gentleman's dignity!!

It feels kinda empty that it all came to an end.... it felt like all of them started only yesterday ^^

The highlight of the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics was when SPICE GIRLS entered the stage!!!
They are and will always be GIRLBAND number 1!!!
Second highligt was when John Lennon's Imagine was played (I know it was before SG but...)
For me this song means a lot, not only do I love Beatles... Imagine is the song of EYP (European Youth Parliament) whom I have shared so much time with and have such great memories with!!
Third was Take That - what a moment, however the song wasn't the same without Robbie Williams...

So now... it's truly ended, no more....

Rhubarb cake with almond icing

Sandra and I found this amazing Rhubarb cake in Copenhagen so I decided to try to make one myself, without the "cheesecake frozing" on top... just the cake!

2 eggs
2 cups sugar
50g butter
1 cup milk
1 1/2 tea spoon ground cardamon (you can have less or more depending on how much you like cardamon, however at least 3/4 tea spoon)

2,5-3 cups flour
1,5 tea spoon baking powder
2 tbs vanilla sugar

100 g almond icing

2-3 Rhubarb stalks (depending on the size.. 2 big o 3 small)
a little bit of sugar and cinnamon and butter when griddle the rhubarb

How to make it:

1. Put on the oven to 175 degrees Celcius
2. Beat eggs and sugar and make it spongy
3. Put the butter in a pot and let it melt, then pour down milk and the grounded cardamon and stir it and pour it down in the eggmix.
4. Mix flour, baking powder and vanilla sugar in a bowl then pour it down with the egg mix. Mix it slowly
5. Mix down the almond icing in the mix
6. Peel the rhubarb and chop it into 1-2cm thick pieces. Put some butter in a fryingpan and pour down the rhubarb add some sugar and cinnamon and griddle them until they go soft.
7. Pour down the cakemix in a cake pan. (don't forget to put breadcrumbs in the pan otherwise the cake will get stuck in the pan!!)
Then pour down the rhubarb pieces.
8. Bake it in the middle of the owen for aprox. 30 min

Lunch time!!

Today me and my brother made lunch together, not by going out to eat.. we made food at home ^^
We made our own pizza! I usually do not like pizza however I do like it when making it on your own! The u can choose whatever u want on it and it's not too fatty and greasy!

So today we made one with crayfish, sundried tomatoes and olives, and 2 other with curry chicken and onion... both with mozzarella cheese ^^


Not really a souvenir but just a good buy from my trip to Denmark!!
I have needed an accessory hanger for a long time and I found this cute little thing ^^  And just had to buy it!! Thinking about it I should have bought two, or maybe I just got greedy after seeing how well this one fit my room XD
Then again not sure where I should have put the second one, however I have lots of accessories, these are just a few of many ^^


5년만에 올해는 내생일엔 집에 있을거야ㅋㅋ생각하면 참 신기해ㅎㅎ 근데 이번 생일날 뭐 할까?? ...그냥 있어도 돼? ㅡㅡ;;

For the first time in 5 years I will be at home for my birthday ^^ it feels kinda weird :P
So for this year what should I do on my b-day?! ... is it okay just be at home doing nothing special? -_-;;

Today's quote

~No matter how tall the mountain,it cannot block out the sun~

being sick sucks!

Last night around midnight i decided to go to our countryhouse, even got my dad to reserve a bus ticket for me.
However when i woke up this morning i woke up with a running nose and a fever!
it totally ruined my dad, so i called my dad who cancelled the ticket, and instead i have been spending half the day in bed!

now i finally managed to get up, had a big cup of coffee and a small bowl of müsli.
And is now watching Arashi's BEAUTIFUL WORLD concert!
it totally cheers me up, since I'm missing out on a great evening with my parents, uncle and cousin at our countryhouse!
Even my brother felt sad for me and said he'd go out to buy anything if i fancied something special to eat, in his mind - junk food ^^
however i have no appetite, could barley finish my tiny bowl of müsli!

anyway i hope this is a 24h flu thing!
i wish!

until i get better I'm gonna let my fave Japanese guys and Korean guys cheer me up!!
