Early Summer

If you will ask me when the summer season is in Norway, I’ll say in the month of May. This is the time of the year when temperature can be so high as approximately 30 plus degrees. Hence, people go out in shorts, mini skirts, and bikinis. June is really the start of summer here but it is usually rainy and cloudy. Not to forget the lower temperature as well! So anyway, before the sun hides from us again, time to spend time under the sun or at least appreciate it. Continue reading Early Summer

The Very First 17th of May

Yesterday was Norway’s constitution day. My hubby and I were home in our new place since it’s a holiday. Here in Norway, people pay respect to their holidays by not doing any kind of “noisy” work that will disturb the neighborhood and the solemnity of the celebration. Well, of course there are some who does not care about the holidays and their neighborhood, so they either get a friendly reminder from the neighbors or being reported to the police if they do not listen. Anyway, this is our first time to have 17th May brunch in our new house. This … Continue reading The Very First 17th of May

Hello Countryside!

As I’ve mentioned before in this post, we are in the process of moving. We had moved all of our stuff  into the new crib and we are still renovating the old one. The renovation of the flat takes time because my hubby had decided to take down a wall as suggested by the interior designer. Our house is circa 45 minutes car drive from Bergen centre. We can also take the bus but it takes 1.5 hours because of the stops. Another way to reach the place from Bergen is to take the westamaran and that takes approximately half … Continue reading Hello Countryside!

Dedication

Before I hit the sack, I just want to share this photo of my hubby. I’m sure that he’ll protest once he sees this but I’m just proud of him. Today he worked alone on the installation of the laminates and it amazed me how he put his 100% on this task. You see, doing something that you don’t normally do is not that simple. If I were to do this, I’m sure that it will take me days to complete just a small part of the room. This is one of the things that I noticed with the Norwegians … Continue reading Dedication

Gray it is.

According to our interior designer, shades of gray is in today. The darker (and warmer), the better it is for the price of the house/flat. At first I did not like the idea because for me white looks neater and cleaner. Not to forget that it is easier to find furnitures and decors that would match the colour of the walls. But the hubby insisted of listening to the designer’s advice which is to go for gray. However, he opted for lighter shades of gray than what the designer suggested. The flat is around 60-70 sqm. Not that big so … Continue reading Gray it is.

On-the-Job Training

One of the x-ray labs at SUS In the past few weeks, I was at my very first OJT at Stavanger University Hospital. I was assigned at the radiology department to take x-rays of patients coming back for a check up. The lab that I was assigned to during the first week is a big one and the most common examination is the pelvis and hips. The patients are mostly elderly and adults, though once in a while we got babies and toddlers too. The first day was the busiest because we had like 30 patients during the shift. Well … Continue reading On-the-Job Training
