Pre-birthday… 8. April 2017

 Some gummy bunnies

 Toast with salted salmon and a boiled egg

 Radish salad and potato salad

 Mashed potatoes with garlic sauce and oven baked chicken

 Kringel that my grandmother made

My grandparents came to Tallinn to celebrate my and my brother’s birthdays a day early. We helped my mom to prepare all the food and then I overate so much xD

The Bifrost Incident… 7. April 2017

 Rice cereal with milk

 Tomato soup with sour cream and mozzarella

 A cheesecake flavoured kohuke

 Buckwheat-cabbage stew with sour cream

 A cherry pastry and a chocolate doughnut

I spent the day listening to The Mechanisms album “The Bifrost Incident” on Spotify. I am so in love with it. It’s as if the band had opened my head up, fished around in it for ideas and then wrote this album. It’s brilliant. I had goosebumps and was jumping around the room in excitement while listening to this masterpiece. This hasn’t happened to me in a long while.

Basically, it’s like a story told in a musical form, with different voices singing as different characters. If you are into Norse mythology, steampunk, Lovecraft or all the previously mentioned, be sure to give this album a listen. You can listen or buy the album here or look it up on Spotify 🙂

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

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 🙂

Moana and sleep… 19-20. February 2017

19. February

 Lemony zucchini soup with rice

 Banana bread with raspberries

 Shared these cheddar cheese and red onion Kettle Chips with my boyfriend

 Chicken-spinach lasagna with some salad

 Cherry pastry and tea

We watched “Moana” in the evening. It was such a delightful animation and a fun story. I also was super happy at the brief Godzilla reference in it xD

20. February

 Coffee and cherry pastry

 Tom yum flavoured instant noodles with sour cream

 Chicken-spinach lasagna

 Milk chocolate with coconut and raspberries. Really delicious chocolate.

I’ve been really tired lately, so I have been sleeping long hours and taken a lot of naps :s

Spideypool… 10. February 2017

 A croissant with beef ham, avocado, lettuce and tomato + a cup of coffee

 A semla boyfriend surprised me with in the evening

 Beef and cabbage stew and sour cream

Maarja visited in the morning, we had breakfast and coffee, and mused over the world and all its complications. It was a lovely morning with a friend.

Then I went to the post office to pick up a package. The phone case I ordered back in the beginning of December last year finally arrived xD So glad it actually got here in the end.
My old case and the new one:

Spideypool galore + a bored looking lady Thor as an extra xD

Then I took a nap, because I am so tired lately and in the evening, we finished watching “Westworld” with the boyfriend. Wow, what a mind-fuck that show was! There were so many things I didn’t see coming at all in that show. So many questions were left unanswered, so I am looking forward to the next season, but at the same time I am also very questioning on where this thing could go.
