Two days off work… 8-9. June 2017

I had two days off work, so I did some errand running in town, dyed my hair green, prepared some water kimchi and started on my first sourdough starter. I’d say that it was a productive two days despite me failing to get the apartment clean. Oh well, dust bunny and kitty litter free floors are overrated anyway.

Also, I have lost 6kg! 😀 So hyped!
About 7 more kg to go now 😦

Bags under my eyes are here to stay… 15-16. May 2017

15. May

 A banana

 Peanut butter energy bar

 Pelmeni with sour cream

 Spaghetti with tuna-veggie sauce

I went and picked up my new ID-card at the police office. I hoped that the bags under my eyes would be less visible on the light photo on the ID, but they are quite very much there. I guess I just should somehow try to accept that the bags are there to stay. You can’t fight your genes I suppose.

Fish harbour, water park and a day with shopping and games… 29-30. April 2017

29. April

 A banana and a cup of coffee

 Oatmeal porridge with chia seeds

 Omelette with buckwheat

 More coffee and a cinnamon roll

 Chicken spring rolls @ Spice

 Beef and spinach curry with rice and some salad

 Cheesecake with blueberries from Killuke Kooki that was delicious

We had planned to go hiking with Ly, Loviise and the rest of the bunch, but the weather was dreadful, so we decided to go to a water park instead. Before that, however, we took a quick detour to a fishing harbour to check out an event held there. Sadly, it was super windy, so we only took a quick look around and then escaped to the water park.

 Windy and cold

The water park was fun, I even dared to slide down some rides. At first I went together with my boyfriend, using floaty boats meant for two people, but later I went down alone. Unfortunately, on one such occasion, my floaty thingy flipped over at the end of the ride and I hit my head hard against the tunnel. After that it was enough water park for me, so I just sat in a bubble bath for the rest of the stay.

After the water park, we had dinner together and then ate cake at our place to celebrate my own, Loviise’s and Ly’s birthdays that all were in April.

30. April

 A banana and oatmeal porridge with butter and honey

 A pear

 Ham and mushroom pizza

 Rice with tuna, cabbage and eggs + some salad

 Realist ginger-peppermint lemonade

 Japanese snacks: Big Katsu, squid snacks and Yakiniku-san. None of them were particularly good.

I went shopping in a second-hand store with Loviise and got myself a new pair of trousers, a scarf and a blouse. In the evening, I had a raid night with the guild, which was great fun as always. Lately, I’ve hardly had any time to play at all due to my suddenly busy schedule.

Guardians of the Galaxy and so much coffee… 27-28. April 2017

 Had a doughnut, a cinnamon roll and some coffee

Loviise came to Tallinn. We had dinner in Gostu and then went to the premiere of “Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2.” There was a whole event around it with cupcakes and cosplayers :p I made my reluctant boyfriend take a photo with Mantis and Gamora too xD There was also a quiz before the movie and I did fairly well, scoring the 6th place overall out of about a 100 players xD

 I snagged these photos from the Kino Kosmos IMAX facebook page.


My tortured boyfriend with some awesome cosplay ladies :p

A tiny high-five! with Baby Groot 😀 And is that just me or does Star-Lord’s shirt look like it says “baby boy”? xD

The movie itself was fantastic. It was so fun. I have a hard time putting it to words how much I loved it.

28. April

 Oatmeal porridge with a banana, and a cup of coffee

 Eva is in Estonia 😀 We met up for lunch in Vegan Restoran V. I had a delicious smoothie while we discussed all that ails us like proper old people :p

 Black bean noodle salad with guacamole and peanut sauce

 Chocolate avocado cream with cherry sauce

 Then we had coffee in a nearby café. I also had a pistachio roll.

 After meeting Eva, I picked up Loviise and went to show her where I work. Had another coffee and a bacon-onion pastry.

 Rice with tuna, cabbage and soy sauce with some cottage cheese and salad

 Sea-buckthorn lemonade

Lovely birthday… 9. April 2017

It was my birthday 😀 I am now level 31. It was also my little brother’s birthday, he turned 10.

 For breakfast, I had half a pack of these cherries in chocolate.

Then my boyfriend and I went to a Japanese restaurant called YUI for lunch. We arrived about 10 minutes before they were officially open, because we messed up and looked up the opening hours for Saturday instead of Sunday. Oops. However, the waiting staff was super nice and didn’t send us back out of the door 😀

 My lovely lunch date ♥

We ordered a lot of food! xD

 First we shared some tempura (battered and deep-fried seafood/vegetables), which I must say is the best you can get in Tallinn as far as I am concerned. There was tempura prawns, salmon and assorted veggies with matcha and curry salt.

 Then we shared these tuna-mayo maki rolls.

 Prawn creamy croquettes which were oh so creamy and tasty!

 Miso soup

I had a tonkatsu o-bentou (fried pork lunchbox meal), which had rice with more tempura, wakame salad, breaded pork cutlet and a couple of sushi bites.

 Look how happy this food made me ;D

 A taiyaki (fish shaped cake with sweet bean filling) with honey and ice cream. Never did I imagine I could one day eat taiyaki in Estonia. It’s like a dream come true.

 Boyfriend had tofu blancmange with matcha ice-cream as a dessert.

 Yui was a great. The atmosphere was lovely, the service swift and polite, and the food delicious. The tastes were so nostalgic and made me miss Japan 😦

We took a hour long walk in Kadiroru park and the seaside after lunch.

 Birdies

 A pretty swan

 Mr. Spock

Later in the evening we went bowling with my family and a bunch of my brother’s friends. This was also fun 😀

 Bowling-oni

 Having a celebratory drink

 I had a great birthday for sure 😀

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 😀
