Winter Love

I remember when I was a kid that I would dream about snow and imagine how is it like to experience winter. Friends and family at the northern part of the globe were popular because they were living a dream. Actually, it is still one of the reasons why most of us from the tropics…

The Product

After months of never-ending work, noise, body aches and frustration, here we are finally done with the flat renovation. It’s great to see the outcome of combined ideas and tips not just from the designer but also from our family and friends. In the process, the renovation has thought me something. It is about the…

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…

Bergen julemarked

Christmas feels is here! I’m so happy to have finally visited the Christmas Market in Bergen. It’s very beautiful because of the lights, decors and the people who are having a good time at the market with their love ones. This Christmas market is not that big compared to other Christmas markets in other parts…

9 Months in the City of Rain

Wow. I have been living in Bergen for nine months now. Who would have thought that I am going to survive here? Did I become so Bergensk now that I become used to the rain? At first, I was really optimistic about the weather even though I know that it rains a lot here in Bergen….

My Happy Place

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Happy Place.” Whenever I need to unwind or take a break from work, I always go out in nature. It’s not only good for the mind and body but it’s also free.

Disappointed at Humanity

We humans are blessed because we’ve been given the ability to think and thus making us superior to other species. We also have the best tools in the world which are our hands. Without them we won’t be able to work for food and shelter. Last Monday, my friend and I went for a walk at Møllebukta, one…

From Bergen to Stavanger

One of the perks of taking a bus during summer (or during a nice sunny day) here in Norway is the beautiful views. Whenever I travel to Bergen (or Stavanger from Bergen), I always take the bus because it’s cheaper than flying (though flying would save lots of time). The travel time is 5 hours,…

It’s the Journey that Matters in the End

During my stay in Bergen, I got sick. I got a flu for around a week. Though it’s not serious (or fatal.. Lol), it still was draining my energy. However, I was so eager to go out because of the nice weather and use the remaining of my vacation days into something fun. So I…
