spring was so busy that i didn't even have time to reflect on what happened. visited istanbul twice and both time came back with nasty flu. that however, did not spoil my impression on this charming city. i would love to come back there with more time for sightseeing. there is so much to discover there. istanbul, i might have a crush on you.

i've been a busy bee recently without much time for blogging. i follow quite a few blogs and after reading those i don't have time anymore to make an update myself. things have been rather good. may consists mostly of packing and unpacking but i don't mind that at all. i have spent a few days in helsinki with best friends and meeting friends that i thought id not see in the near future. it's funny how life sometimes makes nice surprises.
more travels ahead. at the end of this month i'm going to travel to south africa for 3 months. i've never been to africa so i'm looking forward to going there. i hope to meet elizabeth who has been so helpful answering all my questions about her homeland. it will be exciting to witness world cup as well. oh and the wild animals! tanzania, zambia and staying at the beach are in plans too.
but. first im going to sweden. next week i will travel to gothenburg. im going there to spend time with friends but any tips on that city are appreciated.
on the side note, ever since i moved to finland i keep on talking about weather. in a country where nothing really happens, weather is an important subject to talk about. i really can't believe how suddenly it got warm. last week i was wearing hat, scarf, gloves and swearing on the 7°C and this week i switched to sandals, shorts and enjoying 26°C. hello summer, what a surprise!

she made me miss singaporean food but since im too far away to have some i have to settle for what i can get/cook in finland. some of the food i enjoyed in march:
semolina porridge with blueberries and raspberries. cereal latte.
im one of those people that do not leave home without having breakfast. it gives me energy to start a day and quite often it is the biggest meal i eat during a day.
there is always apple juice in my fridge.
spinach soup with finnish barely flatbread.
when i was a kid i ate a soup every single day. i hated it. now i eat soups quite seldom but i enjoy it quite much. oh and that bread is my fave finnish bread.
carrot citrus juice.
if you know me well enough, you know im crazy about carrot juice.
polish pickled cucumbers.
in poland we eat a lot of pickles. every summer my mom makes several kinds of cucumber pickles, paprika pickles, mushroom pickles and cabbage pickles. i miss those a lot. don't get me started how awful finnish pickles are.
tried to make it for the first time last month and now it's one of my favourite dishes.
onigri with self marinated tofu.
perfect food for lunch box. so easy to make!
apple crumble with vanilla sauce.
there is still some left in the kitchen ^____^
this month i have been trying to eat a bit more healthy. i eat 5 small meals a day, drink a lot of water and i try to resist eating after 6pm. i can see that my skin is already getting better!
some of my favourite food blogs are:
vegan yum yum
have cake, will travel
chocochili (in finnish)
maangchi (korean food)
what food blogs would you recommend?
