Ghost in the Shell… 10-11. April 2017

10. April

 Some cereal with milk

 A slice of rhubarb cake

 Mushroom soup with bits of bacon @ Koloniaal

 Rice noodles with veggie-smoked tofu sauce. There were only tiny bits of bell pepper in the veggie mix, so I thought it would be okay, but boy was I wrong 😦

 Rye bread with sausage

My second attempt of baking sourdough bread didn’t go too well either. The bread didn’t rise and was too mushy inside again, but this time it had formed some fermentation bubble-holes in it, so I guess it’s some progress at least 🙂 I got some tips from expert bread bakers in the family that I am going to try out next time.

11. April

 Coffee and a cranberry kohuke

 Four grain porridge with jam @ Koloniaal

 A giant chicken Kiev with some salad @ Koloniaal

 Apple juice, a pancake with ham and cheese + sour cream and salad @ Pannkoogimaja. Boyfriend gladly ate all the bellpeper in my salad.

We went to see the “Ghost in the Shell” movie in the evening. I absolutely enjoyed it. It was visually stunning and made me nostalgic for the anime. I am so glad that I saw in on the big screen, because of all the beauty and spectacle in it. Good times 🙂

Forgetting everything… 5. April 2017

 Rice with tuna, cabbage, sour cream, soy sauce and black sesame seeds


Spicy tomato soup over tortilla chips with some Kalamaja Vürtsleib (bread made by Paljas Pagar) @ Koloniaal

 Fries @ Diner

 Boyfriend had a giant spicy burger

 My “naked” burger with salad. We also shared a bottle of Limonaad.

I had work in the morning. Kadi came to hang out in the café near lunch time, which was awesome 😀 She waited for my shift to end so we could catch the same trolleybus home. By that point I was tired and super forgetful about everything, so half way to the trolleybus stop, I remembered that I needed to go pick up my health certificate from the doctor’s office. So, I tortured her poor tired feet and turned us around, walked to the doctor’s office, picked up my certificate, took it back to work… only to find out that I had forgotten to log out of my Spotify account over there and that I had also forgotten my phone charger xD Good thing I went back there I guess xD

Eventually, we did catch the trolleybus 😀 I was dead tired when I got home, so I took a nap. Since I was too groggy to cook dinner later, boyfriend, the sweetheart, took us to Diner for dinner 😀 Which was the greatest thing ever 😀

A day at work, our anniversary and another day at work… 27-29. March 2017

Oh boy, adult life is tiring. I am still getting used to working again, so I have been even more tired lately than usual, so I have either been busy doing stuff or napping and haven’t found a moment to update my blog xD I am a weak human being compared to so many people, whom I know, who get so much more done in their days without a fuss.

Anyway…

27. March – Just a regular day at work. It’s tough waking up 6:30 in the morning, but at the same time I love the morning atmosphere in the café.

 Coffee, an apple and a Sakupan Choco Monaka which was cute and yummy.

 Fried egg, some bacon, sweet potato fries and salad @ Koloniaal

 Chicken soup with sour cream, rye bread with a slice of ham

28. March – I had work in the morning and in the evening, we went out on a date to an Asian fusion restaurant with my love, because it was our 7th anniversary. Lovely times were had and great food was nommed and hopefully we will have many more amazing years together 😀 Some onigiri (with feta cheese, tuna and mayo) and a cup of coffee

 Feijoada with minced meat and rice @ Koloniaal. Feijoada is a Portugese style bean stew 🙂

 Dinner @ Tai Boh. Pictured are my coconut mojito and boyfriend’s passion fruit mocktail

 Appetizers: dim sum (shrimp flavoured) and ming kham (aka one bite wraps with shrimp, peanuts and other stuff)

 Boyfriend had a lamb rack with pistachio that was absolutely delicious.

 I had tender deer bonsu which was really yummy. I’ve never eaten deer meat before properly, so it was quite an experience. I liked the taste a lot. Also, apparently bonsu refers to the part if the deer I was eating idk.

 Dessert was “silk cake” which was divine.

 I also had a cappuccino

 Camera wars 😀

 The place had a really cool wacky atmosphere

 Moosivarga nägu 😀

 ♥♥♥

 Mandatory bathroom selfies :p

 Oppan Moomin style 😀

29. March – I was working the evening shift, so I got home maybe around 11pm xD Bf was sweet enough to come and pick me up from work, so I didn’t have to commute back home alone ♥

 Coffee and two cherry pastries

 Pasta Bolognese and complimentary bread @ Da Vinci

 Coffee and some zefir

 Feijoada with vegan wieners and rice @ Koloniaal. The vegan wieners tasted exactly like the real stuff to which I was surprised xD

Sleepy Saturday… 25. March 2017

 Corn cereal with milk

 A pear

 Coffee time with Miss K @ Café Mademoiselle

 I had a “naked” burger that was delicious.

 Miss K had a risotto with zucchini and sesame seeds. We shared a bit of each other’s food.

 Spinach pelmeni with sour cream and some salad

I think I spent most of my Saturday sleeping. I woke up late, puttered around for a bit and made my first ever attempt of baking sourdough rye bread. I think the sourdough starter hadn’t properly kicked in yet, even though I let it sit for over 24 hours. The bread didn’t raise properly and was doughy inside. It did however taste alright. Better luck next time perhaps.

Then I felt sleepy and decided to take a “short” nap, but ended up sleeping for almost 3 hours xD

In the evening, I had a mission to go get cat food from the store and conveniently also organized to meet up with Miss K for some coffee and food too. It was great 😀 However, they guy sitting next to us, reading a book and drinking wine, obviously didn’t appreciate our discussions on eating bugs and maggots and about killing chickens as he kept angrily looking up from his book and glaring at us xD

I ended up going to sleep again super early in the evening. Well, around 11 pm is early for me at least.

It’s official now… 16. March 2017

 Cocoa pudding

 A cheese roll and some coffee

 Spicy pork sauce with rice noodles, some salad and hemp seed bread @ Koloniaal

 Japanese style tofu curry with rice

It’s official now, I have a job at a small café/grocery store/bakery Koloniaal 😀 It’s going to be an adventure! I need to touch up my coffee making skills. I used to be able to do simpler latte art, but now the milk just doesn’t come out quite right… or maybe I don’t pour it the right way. It is frustrating me  alot right now. However, nothing a little practice won’t fix I think :p

I sent a notification about my job to the unemployment agency as well, so that should be done with. I’m so glad I don’t have to endure another session over there even though my new agent seemed a lot more pleasant.

Magnesium… 5. March 2017

 Potato and chicken stew, a fried egg and a bacon sandwich

 Shared this Twix chocolate with my boyfriend

 Potato and chicken stew, two cucumber sandwiches and OSHEE vitamin water (magnesium + B6)

I’m not a big vitamin waters fan, but there are a couple that I really like the taste of, so I occasionally buy a bottle or two to enjoy. This OSHEE magnesium vitamin water is one of my newer favourites that I sometimes get a craving for. It tastes almost exactly like the magnesium supplement I am taking against leg cramps, it’s just more enjoyable to consume xD

Trial day… 3. March 2017

 Corn cereal with milk

 Cheese balls with dip @ Koloniaal

 Pumpkin soup with hemp seed and juniper rye bread @ Koloniaal

 Lentil soup with sour cream

 Coffee and a cherry pastry

I had a trial workday at the café/bakery/grocery store and it went well. I was quite overwhelmed with all of the new things I had to remember, but I think I did alright for a complete newbie 🙂 Also some of my coffee making knowledge is outdated and I need to learn some new stuff too, because the last time I was manning a coffee making station, there were no such things as flat whites and even the word americano was a very foreign concept. It’s cool tho, I love coffee and am keen on improving in that front.

I guess I’m getting the job as I was invited back on Monday to learn the morning opening procedures for the place. Welp, keeping my fingers crossed that it all will go smoothly and that I will not fuck up anything by accident. I am already wary of the chemex pot, because I’m afraid to break it xD I probably wouldn’t be this afraid of breaking it if I hadn’t been warned not to do it xD Oh boy, I hope I will get used to everything quickly and won’t worry so much anymore xD

It’s a cool place though and I am looking forward to working there 🙂
