pre-party pictures

i thought i would run around with the camera during the graduation party, but nope. it was time for socialising!

but i captured some pictures before the sixty hungry guests arrived.

bon appétit!

by the way, i have never seen this beautiful butter XD


most of the decorations eventually ended up in my tummy - wow new flavours! 

a great party is nothing without great people.
but there isn't even an incentive for a party without some pearls behind the scenes.



ina and cami: thanks for the contribution and the company!

pride without prejudice

the "surprise" i mentioned before was a speech i held to this (not so small anymore) brother.

thanks to all guests and also a big thanks to the weather gods.


in my speech in mentioned that he'll manage whatever he chooses to do. he's practical and calm as a filbunke
= a pot of sour yoghurt ;) ?

yesterday he got good news: he's starting the flight mechanics programme in the army in july!

after rain

... follows sun? i hope

my mood follows the barometer.
too much thinking - too little done during these past monotone monocrome melancholic days of rain.

but enough of them! 
first i want to share janccu's new analogue photo project.

i happened to be day 3 ;)

actually a suitable expression for this week.

men mungiporna upp!
today i'm full of pride and expectations. 

my little brother graduates from mattliden's gymnasium and it's party time.
but i'm a bit nervous and i'll let you know why later.

alexander's achievement brings to mind my own graduation 2,5 years ago. 

although my IB graduation is a fine memory i'm sincerely lucky that things have changed - a lot :)

loving life, family and friends.

top student


allu is already a top mark bachelor of law already and is next semester returning to england for masters level. 


we celebrated her with good food, great discussions and a passionate music performance by stella & paul.

... but what else than a fantastic show could you expect from a satin circus pop star + a fresh bachelor of theatre art

also my saab is back from scotland over summer and the two of us "prepartied" in the summer heat at the world village festival in kajsaniemi.

allu's symphathetic dad entertained us with his guitar and groovy singing voice.

stella got to try cognac from this 3-in-1 glass ;)

me, cami, paul & stella and andu focused on the strawberries. the more allu brought in, the more we emptied ;)

but also the cake à la allu was a success: loads of fillings between 4 mud cake layers!

and then i biked home to be fit for fight for work at the eu elections the whole sunday :D

01.06.2014 kl. 19:18


ina and i laughed at this petit gourmand.

eating ice cream is emotional and engages the whole body!


by the way, i am selling clothes at syrrans garderob!

30.05.2014 kl. 10:10

summer holiday

sun, sea, sausage, SUP, smiles = summer

ina got paid for the second cup of coffee!


the café actually has its own potato land in this flower box <3

and people buy or bring their own sausage to grill.

looks good. i'm happy to have found delicious vegan versions. they even look the same, so i can belong to the "sausage gang" this summer!

another thing which i definitely want to try this season is SUPping! they even have some for rent at the café.

i'm currently more active on instagram, so please follow me there as well :)

29.05.2014 kl. 09:51



fejs was all about networking and to create social webs. 
but i also happened to unravel some personal meshes.  

mari found this spooky tree with spider? webs.

i took a walk alone and reflected about everything under the sky.

... but of course it was not deep intellectual talking or thinking all the time.
while mari visited a french style bakery i captured this huge bread cow ;)

22.05.2014 kl. 23:32

cool cologne

the sunny day made me long for frozen yoghurt, but they were out of lactose free in the two bars i ran in to.

the journalism congress in cologne started out promisingly. i spotted two dalmatians on the street ... and later in a shop!

14.05.2014 kl. 19:19

turquoise sun rays

i wouldn't mind having my entire spring wardrobe from cos.
here are some window mannequins showing the sleek fashion of this season.

next door there is another source of inspiration.

shopping gifts made me hungry.

i turned tölö into asia with spicy
quorn-buckweat noodle wok 

... and continued across the pacific ocean with a carribean sweet potato-banana stew. 

attn! only the first portions ;) 

28.04.2014 kl. 11:11

springtime sadness

i am not one of the 10 handpicked participants of the photojournalism programme in aarhus.
of course i feel sad since it was, and still is, my dream.

luckily mommy was there to cheer me up. 
we celebrated the day of books and roses over lunch at our favourite café. 

the apple does not fall far from the tree ...
we both arrived a bit shameful with ugly plastic bags as the only wrapping.

inside both bags were cooking books ;)
mine about raw cakes and her's about salads.

luckily there are bright spots among the grey feeling of disappointment.
as plåster på såren mom didn't ask whether i also want a sweet piece of cake - she just bought two to share <3

i will not give up on aarhus, i just have to sort out my future right now.

27.04.2014 kl. 10:10

good morning

what could be better than this?



too hot for jacket



prime time with godson


and lots of fun plans today!

it's not that bad to be left "alone" for easter? i thought i would get bored, but you know me ;) 

21.04.2014 kl. 07:07

instagram = irritation or inspiration?

i was against instagram ever since it started. to post retro images with light leak effects felt like cheezy cheating. i did the real thing with my plastic film camera diana

but i haven't played with her since i became petitemu. developing films is expensive nowadays and i got thrilled by the speed and easiness of shooting only digital.

my new yellow aquaintance constantly blipped about an awesome app called instagram
fine then. jepardqvist is in the house!

consious cycling.


better than b&j.

am i throwing out an old toy for the new mainstream one?

i hope not.
diana will always be my number 1 and is great company at summer parties for example.

11.04.2014 kl. 20:58

sun cake

i saw rasvaletti at villa hagasund with mom and bought some pastry from a cosy glutenfree cafe in the garden.

04.04.2014 kl. 23:23

cake bake

laura and i tried out some cool ideas for the restaurant day.

so the sporty blondies baked vegan glutenfree protein blondies.

and of course we had to eat the treat!

even moomin knows that goji berries and blondies energises a swimming tour ;)

03.04.2014 kl. 22:22


my old girl's gang is like sisters for me. we had a lazy sunday brunch in our childhood hoods.

cami i have known all my life, allu since school started, jonna from 3rd grade and ina joined at 7th grade.

the rest of the best life elsewhere in finland and abroad.

i felt a bit weak, so drank a super C in my favourite colour.

expectations. jonna (far left) and allu (bottom right) flew the same day to budapest for an interrail across europe.
i wish you all the best!

then i took a look at the emma museum's temporary exhibitions.

i <3 the combo of fresh organic food, cool company, concrete architecture and modern art.


03.04.2014 kl. 21:21

chez laura

laura organised the best housewarming party i have been to:

1) the food: 1000 sorts and flavours. 
we decided to take part in the upcoming restaurant day on the 17th of May, so stay tuned!

raspberry raw cake (my favourite) and lime cheese meringue cake (most people's favourite) = both top class.

2) the big brand-new appartement with fresh scandinavian interior design. i stayed there all night.

3)great guests that i didn't know from before.


31.03.2014 kl. 00:35


you can be big and tall - and base it on veggies!

27.03.2014 kl. 20:32


sometimes i have a bottomless stomach, but it's nothing compared to the apetite of an elephant.

baby shower - literally.

25.03.2014 kl. 06:16

antarctis or thailand?


20.03.2014 kl. 22:18

living like the locals

la mode de bangsaen.

luna was the bravest. she just pointed and ordered something, while i involved a whole crew of street chefs to order meatless and my pet.

luna's lunch turned out to be delicious and very spicy, mine more safe, less cheap but tasty.

to cool down our tongues we ordered thai style icecream served from a coconut.
once again luna dared to take all toppings included.


18.03.2014 kl. 10:10

more monkey business

the twenty eleventh bubble tea café ;)

we bought some mouthwatering snacks from this lovely man and his wife ...

but, before we were out of the car on the monkey hill most of the goodies were gone! argh!

that's why we didn't buy them any bananas - the theft was enough!

they were humane, but in a grotseque and ... animalistic way.

wanna eat my fleas?

17.03.2014 kl. 20:20

street food


walking, eating, shopping, eating, talking, eating ...

choose between: sushi, colourful bananas, cakes, fruit candy, spicy noodle wok ...

on my plate: a vegetarian tofu "omelette" with vegetables
and sweet white ice tea with chrysanthemum

hungry dancers ...

and brave farangs!
we tried 1 fried grasshopper each. it was tickling my throat but luna liked it.

15.03.2014 kl. 07:07

fish market

bangsaen is a coastal city with world-famous oyster farms.
and a daily market for fish and seafood.

fresh fish for breakfast and dried into the suitcase.

these girls know that eating fish leads to a healty happy life.

and now i don't mean finnish fish fingers ;)

13.03.2014 kl. 22:22

arfternoon market

another nearby market.

i had to try an octopus sushi.

i bought a new towel for the gym: with stitch!

belly bag with skeletons, cheap sunglasses and green lipstick.

13.03.2014 kl. 05:05

shop 'til u drop

we jumped on a scooter to the big mall, but they foxed us to pay more! luckily it was on our way there and not later with emptier wallets ;)

we shopped cheap clothes and shoes, but kept us going with fresh food.

but enough is enough.
i "dropped" of the bus for a massage and luna went straight home.
11.03.2014 kl. 17:01

penthouse party

we celebrated lisa's last day in thailand with a cooking night in her family's grand penthouse.

i was more than happy to see that a favourite - fresh spring rolls - were on the menu!

chefs in action a cute little thief.

lovely pim planned pure vegetarian alternatives for me.

the fresh tofu with pickled carrot was delicious!

we cooked and ate thai style - anywhere and all the time!

but i managed to roll more than i could eat
-> doggy bag ;)

too much veggies for pai? he had his own meal.

10.03.2014 kl. 19:19

bangkok after the bomb

directly after koh samet we headed for a one-day-trip to bangkok.

this was one day after the bombing. therefore we only hopped on and off the river boat at safe locations.

pim, luna and lisa. we really had a great time together <3

laugh as much as you breath and love as much as you live.

china town in bangkok was crazily cheap and fullpacked of goods.
we also ate lunch for 70 cents/person.

pim recommended me a new look and my company seem to have a fetisch with hats ;)

we drank pure pomegranate juice and lisa bought a dessert with coconut and colorful "worms".

more fooding.

08.03.2014 kl. 08:08



05.03.2014 kl. 20:20

dining like a thai

sand in the pants, water on the toes and delicacies in the tummies.

when you wish upon a ...a dessert favourite: mango sticky rice with cocnut milk.

04.03.2014 kl. 18:18

salt and watermelon

here still pale as porcelain, but not anymore. 

03.03.2014 kl. 09:08


ironically i caught a flu in thailand.

now curing it with sweet and lovely thai tea soya latte.
our café chics were adorable and we became regulars ;)

02.03.2014 kl. 23:53

island in the sun?

we packed only bikinis, snorkling stuff and shorts for a long weekend on koh samet.
typically it was the coldest and rainiest day since october.

25 degrees and i caught a flu ;)

a beautiful stroll along the beach with banana pancake made us smile again.

and crazy tourist stuff and detailed toilet signs.

27.02.2014 kl. 01:01

ultimate fresh food

at a seafood restaurant called relax on bangsaen beach.

26.02.2014 kl. 08:08


if i am honest i hated pattaya, but the floating market worth a visit!

helena the hat lady, dried scorpions, fresh veggie food and great company. we found a couple of new friends among the pensioneers at scandinavian village. this is lisa from sweden.
26.02.2014 kl. 02:02


the markets is the heart of thailand.
people eat, meet, sell and shop at the thousands of markets you can find in every corner.

pottery market at the scandinavian village:

crazy thai couture and oyster omelette at the nearby evening market.

stina needed to cool down the pace with some ice cream.

25.02.2014 kl. 05:05

apple milk bubble tea in my hand.

and pool bubbles underneath my foot.

16.02.2014 kl. 06:06


the recipe:

1/3 white wine
2/3 soda water

+ pomelo


15.02.2014 kl. 05:05

live to eat

thai people seem to eat everywhere and anything.

it's not just about energy, it's a lifestyle.

i had to smell at the durian, but this one i won't dare to try!

13.02.2014 kl. 04:04

sea food

i shine like a blanket here, but at least i don't need bleaching beauty products like people here use.

<3 tom yam.


12.02.2014 kl. 12:12

the mall

2 hour foot massage and maybe 2 more at the food store ;)

some shops were in the car parking?!

i wanna try pink eggs, but i'll try to wait for you luna ;)

12.02.2014 kl. 05:05

bang saen beach

coconut water, fresh jack fruit, grilled prawns and spicy scallops together with my aunt stina.

= already the most delicious day of the year!

i want to try these dried octupuses some day.

our beautiful prawn vendor.

10.02.2014 kl. 16:07

ready for departure

oh my
i'll fly
to thai
sigh (of gratitude)

mom organised a farewell dinner with memories of christmas

when i return i hope that this winter will be just a memory.

ultimate weather boredom today: grayness (only one shade), slush, rain and a cool wind.
perfect for packing, working, cleaning and eating well. 

09.02.2014 kl. 14:59

ingen torr runebergstårta

red topping & top reading.

mom and "baked" pastry of today. i have never been a great fan of the traditional runeberg torte, but i am a fan of the man it's named after.

so we turned it raw!

 ... but managed to destroy 2 mixers. luckily pas deluxe.

worth it? i would argue yes, but not sure about rest of the family.

happy runeberg's day!


05.02.2014 kl. 00:26

men think with their stomach

... but i think it's not a gender thing. 

i had a great sushi dinner with mom the other day and really longed for it. but i always have cravings for sushi ;)

you might wonder what a ..... am i doing here?
i watched another psychosis simuation and then tried a digestive system chaperon to learn where the intestines are placed inside me ;)

01.02.2014 kl. 12:12

there is no universal truth


heureka might mostly attract kids, but is enlightening for all of us.

in the radio report i sat next to a lonely old man on a bench. he whispered crazy words of wisdom into my microphone.

i really miss our theory of knowledge classes in high school. is there such thing as absolute truth? became a hectic debate.

31.01.2014 kl. 17:17

mårran kommer

i feel a bit like mårran today, but yummy exotic fruits keep up the thai fever! 

i might have lost my mind because i'm watching jungle moomin at the moment ;)

speaking of mårran, stella had a one man theatre performance at kuu a couple of weeks ago. in deforst this cool tove jansson character cried and melted my heart (... as well as the ice cream ;) )

27.01.2014 kl. 21:47

pizza perfecto

the last week's been too cold, too dark and too busy for photoblogging. i was the producer of our first radio talk show ever called helium and i'm so proud of our team i could ... levitate ;)

working the whole weekend
but got a evening date
with my best mate
pizza partying
extra everything

25.01.2014 kl. 23:07

morning maria

me and maria started at 7 am with "boba" yoga and continued for a calm breakfast at torre's

after school i waited for mom at superdry's sales.

i've always longed for a vest, but how and when do you use ut?
i've got no clue ... my fingers would probably fall off ;)

why so serious?
maybe because the next moment i left my phone for a "sleepover" at a café ...

19.01.2014 kl. 22:57

soft start

alarm clock ringing at 4:45.
a nice "recovery" after the holidays.

i shoot this for an article that never needed to be written.
cygnaeus was a lovely old school and i felt like becoming a small student again! 
... i might regret it on monday morning ;)

after a short training i almost fell asleep in the shower, but luckily i had a relaxing and delicious evening in front of me. 

my old highschool gang (-mahanta) had a great chat at fafa's.

nice to have the fresh law graduate from england back.

this close friend is studying in the same kingdom, but she returns next week. our forth "member" flew already to london on sunday.

yes sabina, falafels are actually great! 

i had never tried real ones, only avoided the gooey wannabees that they serve at unicafé when the veggie food run out.

10.01.2014 kl. 21:11

photos from my assistant

dad was called my "assistant" yesterday, and not without a reason. he gave feedback on my choice of pictures, bought paper with me, visited kinuskilla to plan and measure, lended his printer ... and his height was useful when hanging the photos. invaluable in other words!

and as you see photography has flooded into my veins from both parents. here are dad's vernissage photos:

toasting with good old friends!

what is the link between these four women? a connection to me and the camera.

stella and paul after cake.

the leica lovers.

check out some more here!

05.01.2014 kl. 21:21

vernissage visitors

i didn't have time for photography at the opening night, but luckily mom and dad brought their cameras.

for the first time i show you photos taken by someone else than me.

here are mom's documentative captures from yesterday:

these helsinki girls were not the only ones struggling to find the way, but i am so grateful that they made it!

- which one is your favourite? discussed mom's good friends (intitially her's but now also my friends).

some cousins popped by between the little man's, my god son's, soccer games nearby.

my god parents bought some art works - thank you!

talented photo buddies who arrived from as far as hangö!

eagerness, creativity ... crazyness ;) ?

thank you for coming, and for all the flowers!

05.01.2014 kl. 10:16

bubbles of elderflower

what a vernissage!

thanks guys - i hope this won't be my last one. around 40 guests oriented themselves out to kinuskilla this rainy saturday.

and for you who missed it, it will hang there until the end of february. i might even organise a second meeting there later this month!

i already sold some copies, but please buy more ;)

04.01.2014 kl. 19:17

this is how i want to celebrate next new year

my brother an his chef friend hosted a new year's dinner with farang menu at my parents home. i was a proud and drooling big sister.

this is parts of his "school bag". we left the gentlemen for parties elsewhere.


i brought my lensbaby with me. it needs care and practice. 


02.01.2014 kl. 06:06

fortune telling for 20 fourteen

we celebrated pre-new year at erika's on monday.

jonna leads the wine tasting and we had chocolate, chocolate cookies, chocolate fondue ... ;)

time to calm down when erika started the fortune telling ceremony. i asked questions about coming events and it seemed logical.

me and luna both asked about thailand and the same tarot card showed up! we have to be prepared to wait for something and keep our things in order ...

so, as long as i have the right attitude this will be a great year!


01.01.2014 kl. 12:41


rafaela is now leaving for an exchange programme in the middle of canada

i will miss my "prima skinka" <3

we had a relaxing evening at her family's house with board games, packing, physiotherapy, fish soup and fresh dates.



30.12.2013 kl. 19:19

christmas cottage

christmas coffee at my aunt in pojo. when she bakes there is always full house and laughter.

my aunt's home breathes real christmas and she chops her spruce in the nearby forest.

29.12.2013 kl. 00:09

and the party goes on

today it was our turn to host the christmas party. 

cake, cake and more cake.

26.12.2013 kl. 22:28

christmas eve

25.12.2013 kl. 13:35

happy christmas

24.12.2013 kl. 08:08

the best thing about cristmas

is that it unites people. first 4th advent with the family, then ginger bread baking and mulled wine with the girls and finally more mulled wine with family friends.
of these lovely people five were homeflewn from abroad.

two of my bestest: the scott and the german

these two i have known since birth! and they have not disappeared anywhere ;).

we might be the smallest, but certainly not the most quiet: we made a christmas carol trio.

and the silly bakers! we made tricolore ginger breads since three people made and brought dough of totally different colour.

these look nice, but we managed to cause a smoke disaster as well ;)


23.12.2013 kl. 11:57

the perfect lunch tradition

last year me and ina ended the autumn's cheap food at uni with a christmas lunch at my favourite restaurant zucchini.

inoubliable, so i called already a week ago to ask for this year's date ;)

and i got two hungry dates: ina and stella!

everything is fresh, homemade, veggie, wellspiced and delicious.

20.12.2013 kl. 21:21

breakfast buddies

i woke up hungry and made us a satsuma & sharon salad with ginger.

luna soon joined and cooked christmas porridge with plum or apple jam, i took both ;)

this was our view from the breakfast table.

slow poetry before a short slippery sunshine run along the river.

buddies chatting and sweating together, like in the old days <3

19.12.2013 kl. 22:22

united uni friends

my lussecats ended up in these peoples tummies.

sem is chewing with severe concentration.

et voilà!.. we did not run out of energy. 

tears, hugs, and laughter. most of my class mates flew back home and left me here in the wet darkness.

i will certainly let these girls guide me around if (no, when!) i ever go to munich.

15.12.2013 kl. 16:16

tomtenissar i tölö

i invited some foreign reporting friends to celebrate christmas.

what magic potion has she made? 
= green christmas tea with an spicy edge.

joy becomes best with a little lack of clarity.

the same applies for journalism: you cannot foretell events, so why try?
07.12.2013 kl. 23:09

chez petite μ

finally inviting relatives for birthday dinner.

beetroot soup with lentils, orange blossom cupcakes with cashew cream.

and of course my favourite: the yellow mushy saffron cake.

c'est la cuisine d'une petite μ.

my god son seemed to like it!


04.12.2013 kl. 18:18

estetik ändå ut i fingerspetsarna

fotografiska hosts the best still photos of the city and has the best real life panorama.

luna the baker: here's a challenge for you! bake beautiful buns like these, but maybe with a saffron twist for christmas ;) ?
and räksmörgåsar à la rafsan! my friend always orders these shrimp sandwiches when we go to sweden.

but she wasn't with us this time, so we just window shopped at the fotografiska panorama bistro.
seems like their food is as aesthetic as the exhibitions.

no worries, this was my last post from the fantastic photo museum in sthlm.

02.12.2013 kl. 07:07

ina the viking

fresh air before big breakfast buffet at the viking boat.

29.11.2013 kl. 21:21

buddies who brunch

me and ina chose to celebrate it big.
we began with birthday brunch in tölö with persimmon cake (my raw cake premiere), zucchinibread, superred christmas sallad, 2 kinds of hummus, green chai latte ...

laura was one of the eight girls who chilled in my kitchen.

24.11.2013 kl. 19:04

birthday breakfast


22.11.2013 kl. 17:17

raw rhubarb rarity

i know we should follow the seasons, and i usually do. but yesterday's temptation was too big: a spring favourite a half year offseason. i bought it and felt like a princess.

raw rhubarb cake at a popup yoga café. umami.

sweet & sour and not very soft - a bit like me then? 

this might give me inspiration for my birthday cake ;)

19.11.2013 kl. 19:19


not breakfast, but a fast lunch break at the restaurant day

sofia and her friend sara (on the picture) waited for some authentic blinis in the cool november breeze.

i also found my classmate busy selling goodies and blueberry mulled wine.

in the same parc there was a huge pot vehicle. fresh herbs and fuel to spice to stew.

eat finland as a side dish!

there were more nationalistic pancakes.everyting tastes better with a flag, don't you think? 
i agree with this eager pancake eater.


17.11.2013 kl. 20:20

freaky friday

... with the family.

our halloween dinner: my spicy salad with blue witch hair noodles and mum's vegetarian harvest pie and orange blood, ghost and spider muffins


05.11.2013 kl. 15:15

the last pumpkin

this was my masterpiece, as maniac as it's artist ;)

giorgia happened to pop in too. it was her boyfriend who cheated with the pumpkin ;)

bubbly italian giorgia and i have a common friend in paris.


05.11.2013 kl. 05:05

triangle drama

we and the other kids carved pumpkins!

they became so sweet that he fell in love, but his girlfriend just watched from the side.

also the "froyo aunt" dressed up for the evening. she stands beside the young owner.

this girl carved the perfect pumpkin.

04.11.2013 kl. 18:18

thai vibes

honey pomelos were on sales, so i had to try!

i used my new thai fork to add the exotism and celebrate the new kitchen, but the opening ceremony did not continue as well.

i was exited to finally have a stove ... but when i had prepared the meal it was not installed :P.
so i continued surfing on the microvawe.

while mentioning thai, i have to share the news: me and luna are going to visit my aunt who lives in thailand! ... so if anyone hears about cheap flights let me know ;)

while working

i am choosing pictures for the photo reportage and found some irrelevant, but important, moments between the estonian interviews: the lunch breaks.

buckweat casserole with mustard sauce.

morning mystery

it rained and so did my nose.
on top of that saturday turned out totally different than our plan.

empty questions and worries while working at her appartement.
i turned out i was not going home this day.

the flegmatic outdoor grayness worked well on my nerves. 

i orientated through old town towards lunch at comfortable f-hoone in the arty blocks.

me: i must say you have the coolest hair!

the turquoise waitress: actually you look very cool yourself. i like tiny people. i'm tiny myself.

she convinced me to take another cup of green tea latte. yes - it served a purpose ;)

easy landing in estonia

updating without internet is a challenge. this is how we started the week of foreign reporting in estonia.

journalists really like job trips. but the biggest reason behind these smiles was the delicious and cheap lunch they just had.

dani got her duck all wrapped up like on christmas!

i tried buckweat porridge with capers and sundried tomato.
ethnicity is one of our tasks here after all.

cousin celebration

matilda has now lived for a decade and we celebrated her with princess cake

from our family she got "fashion" and from me a very special necklace.

we sportsladies like it raw

african guest lecturers, sweaty workout and a raw cake course = a fruitful day.

this is the masterpiece we created.


thanks to sportslady it is official: my career as a raw cake baker can start.

99: relax & reflect

what happens if you bunch up an international group of aspiring journalists?

deep debates about the cruel media climate. imagine all the people ...

but no food - no brain work. the raw lingonberry cake matches the matcha
maria - the girl with the lingonberry hair

i really like our chill and colourful class of foreign reporting.

98: morning circus & evening quiche

came late to school because of this. who bikes by a free circus? the spotted one looks like pippi longstockings "lilla gubben".


here is my birthday pie for mum: feta-edamame-greencabbage-broccoli-onion. 

happy birthday mum <3

96: symbiosis

late for a meeting, tried to call my friend who didn't answer. then i realised that the rest of my numbers disappeared = incapacitated.

felt stupid. i am a part of the modern handicapped generation who can't handle phoneless situations.

i stumbled upon a letter which exactly met my obsessed demand. the last part.


a happy ending. i met these giggling veggie burger eating buddies.

our laughters tend to conclude in a colourful big bang! we don't even need to be high on sugar.
they are sweet and crazy enough. just by themselves. the best combination, don't you think?

the same characteristics as what i like about our city. first you see the beautiful architecture and then you spot that someone still (... or already) celebrates christmas with an advent candlestick on the ledge.

sometimes the creative madness is more evident.

took a pause from urban absurdity in good old esbo. we celebrated mum's birthday with a harvest dinner.the city and its suburbs - in symbiosis. luckily i have homes in both.

91: our pride

the visit at hesari finished - time for some finnish fish.

most of my classmates in front of the giant pike sculpture outside the music house, where they actually served nordic pike beef for lunch ;)

one summer me and my brother caught so many pikes that fishing became forbidden for a while. dad was tired of gutting and mum of eating and preparing. we had oven pike, fried pike, grilled pike, smoked pike ... ;)

89: fresh air and vitamins

studying in the rocking chair, eating slow food and vitamins and relaxing at the summer house. try to boost my immune system to kill off the stubborn bacillus. 

this week i'll be a duracel ;)

87: slow saturday

welcome to the slow food festival in fiskars!

a soul mama and my friend daniel.

the market in colours.

the icecream queue, oat coffee tasting and happy family members with or without fur.

i tried the best seitan ever at soul mama's kitchen. it was definitely worth waiting for.

neither the cold day or my flu stopped me from tasting cloudberry icecream for dessert.

this will be the sunday dinner.

the slow flow continued throughout the day at snappertuna. sausage grilling and sauna swimming under the starry sky.
