Taking a Break from Reality

Finally. We can now see and feel that spring has come after months of rain and gloomy weather. 🙂

Coffee, Tea and More!

As my relationship with tea gets stronger, my interest for tea shops and cafe grow as well.

Most of the tea lovers in Bergen that I chatted to, online, suggested that I check out Herskap & Tjenere. I have been here before, but I did not pay attention to the teas because I was not interested in teas yet. However, I did already find the place cosy and kind of unique. It is not fancy, nor classy but the ambiance is perfect.

Herskap & Tjenere is not your ordinary tea/coffee shop because they do not only sell tea and coffee and (brownies) but also candies, vintage women’s clothes and gift articles such as mugs, stickers and many more!

I went here after going to the job fair last Friday. It took me at least 15 minutes before I ordered something because I could not decide what tea to order. The woman who was working there that time asked me what teas I drink, I told her, green tea but I told her that I wanted to try something new. So she suggested some teas, like the red teas and she added that she drinks it everyday to relax her nerves. I still could not decide what to order so I told her I need more time. I looked up to one of the shelves and found the Chinese teas, then I suddenly remembered the tea blogs that I stumbled upon to, almost all of them recommended Pu erh tea.

So yes, I ordered a cup of Pu erh and I loved it! One cup is 33 NOK. Not bad!

When it comes to the service, I can say that they are one of the best. I cannot say that they are very knowledgeable about Chinese teas they are selling but the woman was really helpful and answered my questions nicely and politely.

I recommend this tea shop to all tea enthusiasts and curious cats like me. 🙂

Bright and Cold

The snow is back after two weeks of storm and mild weather. I am also grateful that it is getting brighter again. My mood is starting to get better and I am motivated to try something new when it comes to jobs. The economic crisis is not yet over. Yesterday, one of the biggest banks here in Norway laid off 600 employees. So yes it means an increase in unemployment rate in the country. It is depressing for those who have lost their jobs and it is also frustrating for job seekers like me to find jobs within our field.

Yesterday I had a meeting with the local social services office. They have given me tips on how to find jobs. I listened attentively even though I already know it. Then in the end of the meeting they asked me if I have a business or establishment. In my mind I was thinking, it is a good idea. I actually have business ideas already. All I need is to make a plan, budget and just execute the plan. I have faith in this because I have the knowledge in economics and accounting.

Anyway, since the weather is nice today (and so as my mood), Zorro and I went for a longer walk this morning.

Girl’s Handball

Last Sunday, I was invited by my friend to watch a handball match near where I live. By the time I arrived the second match was about to start. I was only there for 15 minutes because I was going to see the Star Wars movie too. I find it fun to watch. I enjoy the little time I had there but I wish that I could have stayed longer and finish the match.

Seeing the girls play brings back childhood memories. Now I miss my old school, my old teachers and most of all my old friends.
