My friend and I went window shopping today and this one caught our attention.

Busy Monday in Stavanger

Monday was the busiest day in Stavanger this week. There were 4 cruiseships at the ports (only took pictures of 2 of them). I heard that the biggest cruiseship has the capacity of 2000 plus passengers. So imagine the streets were almost packed with tourists. It’s good for the business but not all are happy about the cruiseships docking in Stavanger and the tourists (because of the noise and trash problems).

A Date with Michelle

Last Thursday, I had a date with my girl friend Michelle. Met her in town, we took a cup of coffee and talked about lots of stuff. Then a friend of us finally joined us and we had this conversation about self improvement. It’s not that much actually but I’m glad to have met these people because they are inspiring and encouraging personal growth. We also talked about how young we are still and that it’s never too late to achieve your dreams even if you’re almost 30.

After coffee, we went to the Japanese restaurant to eat gyoza and dumplings.

Thursday was perfect because it’s freaking 21 degrees Celcius! It’s definitely a summer temperature and a perfect day to take pictures.

Dumplings. Too bad I got full before I could taste them.

Michelle braided my hair. Two types of braid in one.

Cool street mural painting. That’s me by the way. I can’t pose. 😛

Japan Feeling in Stavanger

 

Never been in Japan but I’ve learned to love the Japanese culture because of my exposure to their films, tv shows and cartoons. I have also learned some Japanese words because of the anime song themes. I’m also a big fan of Japanese architecture. It’s very neat and minimalistic but definitely an eyecatcher.

Anyway, when I was jogging a week ago, a gate caught my attention. So I stopped. Took a closer look at the house and the gate. Suddenly memories of my teenage years came back and one of  Rurouni Kenshin’s theme song played inside my head. I felt like I’m one of the girls in that anime series. This house definitely gives me a Japan feeling.

What do you think?
