There is a weirdo in my tea… 15. April 2018

 A banana and a cup of coffee.

 A vanilla kohuke.

 Greek yoghurt with honey and some granola.

 A grilled sandwich with cheese and ham, potato-carrot soup with sour cream.

 Tea, black sesame seed senbei, almond rusk and milk chocolate with biscuits. The senbei and the rusk were super delicious, the chocolate bite was meh.

 Caramelised apple cake bite. This was also meh.

Level 32… 9. April 2018

 Oatmeal and rice porridge with grapes, chocolate orange slices, chia seeds and butter.

 Some grapes and coffee.

 Chicken gyoza @ Washoku Story

 Tonkotsu soy ramen which was so so so good. I also had two glasses of plum wine.

 My lovely date amazed with his food ❤

 Matcha cheesecake.

Back to Tallinn… 7. April 2018

 Coffee, fried potatoes and a fried egg with some pickled cucumber.

 Potato wafers and hot cocoa.

 Chocolates.

 Couscous salad with garlic sprouts and flatbread with sausage.

Vacation over. We drove back to Tallinn and I spent most of evening taking an online food hygiene course for work. Most of the information in the course was self-evident, but there were some interesting new bits as well when it came to different bacterial infections. For instance I learned that salmonella can also spread via spices and especially with black pepper. I used to think that salmonella was always bound to eggs and chicken meat, but I guess not. At the end I had to take an exam, did quite alright in it and got my certification that certifies that I know to wash my hands :p

Fall damage… 1. April 2018

 Coffee and some meat pastries from my grandmother. I have somehow managed to chip my cauldron mug 😦 So sad.

 Leftovers from the buffet: potato gratin, slow cooked beef in wine sauce and some salad.

 Leftover chocolate mousse. Doesn’t look so good anymore, but it was still delicious xD

 Kaki no tane in milk chocolate. These were so yummy!

I didn’t see many interesting jokes or pranks around the interwebs other than an ice cream company announcing their brand new healthy cauliflower-broccoli ice cream XD Another one was my mmorpg enabling fall damage, that has been gone from the game for years now, for a day. I was beyond giddy about it and had a fun time jumping off several cliffs xD It also presented several funny occasions while playing, because people kept forgetting that they could die by jumping off higher places xD Good fun was had.

We got married!… 28. March 2018

Sorry for being absent for a while, but life got busy and then I wasn’t at home for a long period of time. My boyfriend of 8 years and I got married on our anniversary 😀

 Quick morning breakfast was rice and miso soup.

After I picked up our wedding cake and boyfriend went and got me a bouquet of flowers, we headed to the cornily nicknamed Happiness Palace to get married. It was just the two of us as it’s how we wanted to do it. It was our anniversary which has always been a private event for us.

Before the ceremony we had a photographer take some photos for us at the waiting room:

 Me and my love.

 ♥

 I loved the colour of the roses so much.

 😀

After the photography session, we had a short meeting with our wedding officiator about the proceedings. Apparently a simple ceremony is customary for everyone even if you just are there to sign the papers :p We agreed on a few sweet words and then for the marriage contract to be read to us as the ceremony proceedings.

A sweet touch that we added was that we brought our own music for the ceremony (because apparently if you didn’t you would get Beatles on a pan flute xD). We picked this song – Dir en grey “Ain’t afraid to die” – and it gave us many a giggle when it started playing in the ceremony room:

 Feeling giddy.

 I was so nervous I hardly remember what was said to us during the ceremony xD

 Mrs. and Mr. Paas 😀

 ♥

After the ceremony we went to a restaurant called Mimosa to have lunch.

 Kali and a mimosa.

 Snack selection – hummus, smoked fish mousse, two-fish cheviche, beef tartar, cheese. All of this was super delicious.

 Hubby ate their daily special (cutlets and vegetable gratin) and I had a green salad with fried mushrooms, crispy carrot and an oven-baked tomato sauce which was also very tasty.

After lunch we drove to Laulasmaa Spa for a day of bathing and relaxation. First we started by eating some of our wedding cake at our hotel room:

 Raspberry-cream cheese brownie cake from Killuke Kooki.

 There was also a fruit and chocolate platter waiting for us in our room 😀

Anyhow, then I got a foot procedure and afterwards there was a massage session for the both of us. All super relaxing. Later we enjoyed the rest of the spa- bubble baths, an onsen, salt sauna and steam sauna etc.

 Our day ended with a three-course meal in their local restaurant called Wicca. Hubby’s mocktail and my cocktail.

 This was a greeting appetizer Baltic herring. Sadly, it wasn’t very good, but mostly because I don’t enjoy this type of fish very much.

 Main appetizer- slow-cooked beef liver, spicy plum jam, pickled red onion, sea-buckthorn meringue and rhubarb meringue. The liver was oh so tender and lovely.

 Main course- potato and leek croquettes, mushroom cream and wild mushrooms. This was delicious, albeit the croquettes being a bit too oily for my liking.

 Dessert was coffee and an ice-cold cream cheesecake on raspberry cookie with raspberry sauce. Super yummy. Indrek had a crumbly pastry basket with vanilla cream and currant compote.

It was a lovely and a memorable day 😀
