POST-HOLIDAY'S AND THE PIG IN ME

A little too late to write about the holidays but what the heck, I'll write about it anyway! You see, I do believe in the saying 'better late than never', which I sometimes live up to. Or so I believe. Anyway, I spent my christmas holiday in Tallinn. I met his family and his friends, and so on. It was really a wonderful time despite the fact I refused to celebrate religious holidays like christmas because I thought it is unnecessary… Pessimist much? No. I refused to celebrate it because I have other better things to do during that spare time, for instance to travel. A lot of money is usually involved in holidays like that and money is absolutely something I just don't spend on gifts therefore people can just shove it on one corner and forget about it. I am truly not a gift giver. I rather pay for your dinner, at least I know you enjoy it. But this is me, you are you and we are totally different. I blame no one. 

Back on the holidays, I spent it with his family like what I aforementioned and at the same time we also spent quite a time hanging around this beautiful town pigging out on pretty much anything we can afford. I love spending money whenever I am in Tallinn because it is cheap and usually good. We planned at one point to indulge and eat something amazing which would blow your mind, at one fine dining restaurant located in the heart of old town in Tallinn. Very cozy, very calm, very romantic… Yes, there's a but. But, we were so damn hangover that we settled for something even more amazing (especially if you're having a good hangover), grease food! I seriously won't go and eat a platter (or two) of that beer food without a good hangover unless you're a total grease lover! It was a monster plate for four consisting of many different deep fried food you can ever imagine. It was heavenly at that time, truly. I was a pig craving for food at that time. I felt disgusting but didn't care because I was so hangover all I can thing of is fried food. All fried food…. and a good pint of beer. Problem solved, both are happy. Tummies are jolly happy. Damn good day I must say. Well, hence the hangover. 

So yeah, our holiday was pretty much something I won't tell a Vegan about unless I want them to hate me for life. It was a total fat ass moment but I regret nothing! It was fun and I enjoyed and I must say, christmas ain't bad after all. I still don't see myself exclusively celebrating christmas but since I only refuse it because of its religious meanings, I do see myself coming back to that time last year for the food. Also, Estonians are without religion; I know they only celebrate christmas out of fun and family gathering, which sounds a lot better than fooling myself believing it is a mighty day.

New year's wasn't bad either, we went to my friend's place and indulge on more food, drank alcohol, saw the fireworks and sealed the year with happy endings. No hangover the next day, good start of the year I suppose! All I am just asking for this year is nothing but good health and great moment. I am not going to plan so much goals to achieve this year, and this 2014 I will stay in low-profile. Taking it easy and no stress at all. Laidback so they say. That is the plan so far and I suppose it is going quite alright! 

Before I end this post, here's the photo of the grease food I mentioned above.


I told ya, everything went to the deep fryer. Exactly like how we wanted.

Great day y'all!

BAD BLOGGER, BAD BLOGGER

Alright, I have to admit I have not been the most productive lately. I have no excuse for it either other than I have been truly lazy and there's absolutely no great moment happening in my life lately. Other than all of these, I had a major transition in my life which happened late October of last year. I'll brief you not in details since it really did happen super fast and neither I can remember its full details. 

So, lets go back to July of last year when I asked for a lovely weekend off with my girlfriends to visit Tallinn, Estonia for the nth time. I was working in a lovely summer restaurant in Vaasa, a very beautiful old villa by the sea. I have no other things to say but greatness towards this workplace, it is as well run by the same company I was working for, Gustav Wasa; a fine dining place located at the heart of Vaasa, my ultimate dream job. Yes, I was working for these places. I was doing the job I always dreamt of. Fine dining place, great people to work with, its a family. The whole place is a family. But as they say, even in greatness you'll find a moment when you feel so defeated. During that time I have loads of things running in my head, future plannings and other activities to be done. By the looks of what I used to have, I did had everything under control and I truly had everything I needed. I was happy but not contented. I wanted something but I don't know what it is. There is where it all started. I started to question my needs and my wants and there is when I decided to alter my plans and decided to leave. It all started in Tallinn, the change of heart. There is when I realised, I am not ready to settle in one place.  To be fair, it was not a very easy change but since I am so used to having a 'change' it didn't took me a long time to properly hang on to it. Why so sudden? Impulsiveness is something I never tried and it felt like it was the right time to finally do it. I was full of regret in the beginning but the heck, I shoved it off and decided to enjoy what I have in front of me. There's no time for regret, I am so young that I will just waste my time beating myself up over something which is already done. In every turn, there's always something to learn.

Ok, in conclusion, what was the major transition? I moved back to Helsinki. I am back here, in this city. But a lot of things has changed now and by a lot I meant, a lot. I am not going to bore you with the details but I can promise one thing though, I think I will start updating this blog more often. I really do miss writing and expressing my feelings through words. And you must be wondering what I am up to now? Well nothing much; painting, learning and living life as usual. The usual. :)

Have fun y'all! Have a great weekend ahead of you.

LIFE IN PHOTOS: LOOKING ON THE BRIGHT SIDE, SUMMER IS SOON HERE.





Instagram photo's from today. I've confined myself in the comfort of my home today. Went out to buy a few things from the store, went home, clean and cook dinner while dancing like a mad man. It is a happy day today, all by myself amused by own craziness. A relaxing way to end the week and enjoy a glass of white, or bottle. It doesn't matter. All I know right now is that I live my life rather well enjoying the simple things life have to offer. I know I'll survive with just little and simple things. I am glad. I hope all goes well with all of you!
