Today's quote

"It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to your enemy, but a great deal more to stand up to your friends" - Dumbledore (Harry Potter and the sorcerer's stone)

Tokyo Banana Original

As promised my auntie brought me a package of Tokyo Bananas!
She got me the original one, I haven't eaten it for years, mainly because there has been new flavours many times I have gone there lately.
Anyway, it was so awesome to get this snack!! I love it.
It's seriously one of the best snack you can bring home from Tokyo.
They sell it at the airport and also train stations (Shinagawa/Tokyo) in Tokyo.

My colleague's boyfriend loves them too..I sent her a photo of the box and she showed it to him.
He works for a "food company", he said he'd trade any of their products for one of those!! XD
It isn't like I couldn't have given one to him but since he offered, why not!? The company he works for is awesome!!! I also gave one to my colleague without anything in return.

I'm a bit behind on my posts but that's how it is.
Anyway, we had this delicious SMÖRGÅSTÅRTA / Sandwich layer cake before midsummer when our Japanese relatives came to visit. We tried to feed them Swedish foods and can it be more Swedish than this?
Of course we had a lot of other things on the table too but...

Have you ever tried it?
If not, Google it and see if you can find a place near you who sells it ^^


Here's the memorable song from Pitch Perfect 2.
I really like it, I had no idea it was Jessie J who was "behind it".

Super fast

The paycheck rolled in a few days ago, so I decided to order some new underwear/sleepwear from Victoria Secret.
I'm still waiting for them to arrive. But I was so surprised, I ordered at 6pm, went out.. when I came home I found one more item I wanted, So I asked Customer Service if it was possible to add it to the order. However to my surprise it was already packed and ready to be shipped!!
I'm so surprised they work so fast!! Sad I couldn't add the item, but happily surprised they packed it within a few hours. The following morning I got an email saying it had been dispatched from warehouse.

I cannot wait until I get them!!!


This maybe the piece I was most excited to receive when my Japanese aunties came last week.
Although it's a very simple dress in itself it's SOOOOOO pretty ^^
I got the gray colour. I wasn't sure between navy and gray so I let one of my aunties to decide it for me ^^ She chose gray. I have it in M size, it's still slightly big and loose. I like the patterns on it and also the back it's not just plain! To me it looks more designer but for a very affordable price.
The fabric is also super soft, like hmm... I donno just super soft ^^
I'm so happy for this one, I will wear it a lot!

Pasta lunch!

Last Wednesday I met up with a few colleagues from the past for lunch.
It was fun, although we work in the same building, we are too busy to meet up. This lunch probably took us 6 months + to arrange.
Anyway, the menu was full and in the end I went for pasta! A huge portion, I left a lot of the pasta. It also came with garlic bread and a big salad bar, where you could pick your own choice.
A very nice lunch, I hope we can do it again... after the summer vacation ^^

Step Down From It

I talked about Anders a few days ago, here's another tune..
I really like the sound of this one!

Enjoy ^^

Pitch Perfect 2

I have been waiting, I have hold back until now, but finally I saw the movie. I saw the first one on TV just a few days before, it helped me to refresh my memory ^^
This movie is an easy movie to watch and just fun! It's great when you just needs a laugh.
Some things was a bit childish, then again it's supposed just to be fun. And it's also good music!!
If you liked the first one, you won't be disappointed.

15.6" laptop sleeve

I bought a new laptop the other week so I'm in a need of a new sleeve.
I was lucky to win an auction on ebay, I got this one really cheap, around 5.5 USD.
Good price no?!
I hope it fits!!! :)

This is another piece I got last week, it's top from Lowrys Farm.
I wanted a long one, but they didn't have the colour in stock. So I asked for the shorter one.
I will mainly use it together with a skirt. I'm taller than average Japanese girl so this is kinda short, not like the models. Anyway, I got the dark gray one above. It's very simple I know... But I just love it! I have looked at H&M etc, but not been able to found one, So this is what it came to.
I'm so thankful to my Japanese aunties!!

Weekend Getaway

I love to travel, when I'm not I try to find out where to go next.
A few days ago me and my bf found cheap flights and hotel so next month we are going on a weekend getaway in North Sweden.
I really look forward to it. Our first travel together ^^

I saw Andreas on TV the other day, he performed this song. It made me realize what a great song this is. I used to hear it a lot during last year. But I never really knew who he was. Now I think I will look him up a bit more!!!

Enjoy some great Swedish music!

SG Skyline

I like to see cities from above but also from the ground if the view is nice.
These photos are taken at Marina Bay in Singapore. The ones from above is taken from Marina Bay Sands Hotel Sky Deck. And the one below is taken in front of the Marina Bay shopping mall.

Most tourists are crazy to see the infinity pool, yes it's nice but it cost. You can only enter by staying at the hotel. The sky deck is good but it's nothing special, not worth the money if you want to see the pool. It's not accessible and cannot be seen from the sky deck. But yes, I can admit this is a sightseeing spot if you would like to see the SG downtown skyline. However I'd rather say, go in front of the shopping mall and take a photo from below, the view is spectacular if the weather is nice, otherwise you can fix it with you phone or computer. You can also take one of the hotel and pool, you get a good view from below.
I talked about ION Sky and One Altitude a few days ago, you can go there to get photos of the skyline for free ^^

I miss Singapore, it'd be nice to just make a weekend stop, too bad it's toooooo far away!!

C シャツレイヤードプルオーバー

My "aunties" came from Japan last week, I showed a photo of all the gifts they presented me with. it felt like Christmas.
Anyway, this was one of the pieces they gave me. This top is from one of my fave stores Lowrys Farm. I like the simple design yet it works for several occasions.
I got the striped one, it also comes in three other colours.
Aunti said she had bought same things for her daughter but different colours ^^
I wish I had this store in Sweden, then again it'd be dangerous, most items are so cute!!

Snickers Hungry Rescue

Sometimes life is not easy...
I know Snickers has done good commercials in Sweden before, but this Korean one too is kinda funny. If you press on the settings you can get English sub. ^^

BK Black & BK White

When we came to Singapore we saw this add, or actually we only saw the black one. Both S and I said, before we leave we should try it. The week passed and suddenly the white one appeared!
Before we board the flight, at the airport in SG, we were able to locate a Burger King and we got one of each. Burgers only as we were kinda full already but we felt like it was a much try. A SG edition only?!

And the picture, as always, looked way better. 'Cause this is what we got...See below.
Apparently you could mix them, chicken or beef, but we took it the way they were presented on the picture. Both of us preferred the black one with chicken. Not that the white beef one was bad or anything, just that the black chicken was better ^^
I'm not a fan of fast food, but for these kinds of editions, I can make sacrifices XD

Green Tea cone

In Singapore I found this at a random 7eleven. it's a long story how I ended up there, involving shouting at some teenagers for talking instead of doing their job!! To wait for over 30 min for a waffle and ice cream that takes maximum 10 min to make with the place was quiet and not crowded was unacceptable. Anyway, I think it turned out well, I mean I found this Green tea ice cream cone! Looking at the text, it seems to be from Thailand! 
We also have this ice cream brand in Sweden, but not this flavour, such a shame but it's not a typical Swedish flavour so.
It had green tea and chocolate!! A good mix and good size of an ice cream!
I want another one..haha Eating simple and similar stuff in other countries is so much fun!!

Prime Burger

A few days ago after some drinks Alex and I headed for a very late dinner.
Alex took me a nice burger place called Prime Burger. According to her this is a chain and has been around for a few years. sorry for being lost. But to be honest, burgers is not my fave food so I haven't heard or seen it before. I have passed the streets where they are located but still never thought about them. It's not like I don't appreciate a good burger, but fast food or foods similar to it is not on the top of my list.
Okay anyway, I'm so happy Alex took me here, this is not just any kind of burger. I skipped the side dishes.. and it was a good choice this time. The burger was a real burger not a patty. here you could feel the meat. I tried the SAN ANTONIO BBQ Burger, it came with a real feeling of what an American hamburger should be ^^
I will def. go there again ^^

Gifts from Japan

Today our Japanese guests left us.
This is what I got from them when they arrived, I will post more details about the clothes later ^^
I feel so blessed I did not imagine they'd bring me this much!!!!


It's midsummer day over here, but I'll share some French music.
Also this song is by my newly found singer Louane!
This song is called Avenir, which means Future.

The most important holiday in Sweden is here... Midsummer!
I wish we'd have better weather considering we have guests from Japan. Guess you cannot have it all.
It will be a good day anyway.

Happy Midsummer!
Glad midsommar!

ION Sky 2

The lift tells you where it is, I think the design was kinda cool and when we took it my ears didn't hurt ^^

The day we went the weather was kinda cloudy but the city skyline is kinda cool if you ask me. Thanks to my SG girls for taking us there! We really enjoyed it.

ION Sky 1

Today I will talk about a sightseeing spot in Singapore that has a central location, amazing view and is 100% free of charge. I think that a lot of people do not know about this place, when we were there it was not as busy as I thought it would be. So if you happen to be in Singapore, this place is worth stopping by. Both for young and older ones!!
This place is located in the ION mall, on Orchard Road.
You take a separate lift from the 4th floor to go all the way up!

Tomorrow I will post more photos from the sky deck... Stay tuned!

Samsung Ativ Book 9 Style 15,6"

I have talked with my dad since mid last year that I should get a new laptop. But in the end I never got one. I guess I should blame my laziness! Dad has been happy with his Samsung so he told me to get one before they leave the Swedish market. And now, I got my tax refund so we said I should get one. I took a look at what's on the market and also asked my dad for his opinion, especially since he has a great knowledge about computers. In the end I chose this one. A Samsung Ativ Book.
The screen is 15.6 inches so if I want to watch movies it's possible, it's not too heavy either enabling me to bring it on travels. 
I love the back of it, it reminds me of leather making it look quite expensive ^^ A very nice design if you ask me! Dad has already set most things up and I have been using it for the past week, I'm extremely satisfied!!
I got the final one in Stockholm, it seems there are not many left in Sweden. I know people prefer using different kinds of tablets, still I think I would be lazy if I had one, besides I like my keyboard, it's okay without too but in the end, that's a kind of accessory I'd have to buy so...

Call me old fashion?! (^^;;)

Now I just need a case to carry it with....
