Stay in Saturday

The last two weekends of the month are usually the most boring weekend as your bank account is barely holding on by a thread. So obviously the idea of an extravagant weekend out with your friends has to be politely ushered out the door. Last Saturday, Helena came by my apartment and we decided to make an oh-so-yummy quiche. Dinners out would be our solution but since both of us had our wallets emptied out, we resorted to good ol' home made food! After wreaking havoc in my kitchen and sharing much laughter between ourselves, a beautiful leek, spinach, mushroom and feta cheese quiche was born. We then lit up the candles and cozied up to watch the weirdest movie ever - Mr. Nobody.

Long weekend

Most of the time, even back in Singapore, I would steer clear from doing anything during the weekdays. You know, you have to work the next day so you just want to go back home and unwind. However, this renders us so anti social and it has to change. I mean don't get me the wrong way. I am guilty and even more so than anyone else I know, of just going home after a long day of work, making up excuses to not meet people. I am young and I am working and living in a foreign city and I should not use the excuse of "having to work" the next day to not meet people. Where's the fun in that? I should be grabbing life by the neck and not letting it suffocate me! That is why this week, I was rather proud of myself for making the effort to go out on Thursday night to play cider pong with Julius, amazing shabs (as instructed by her), Anna and Lucas . I was tired, yes, but more importantly, I had a good laugh and it was a better way to unwind from a stressful day at work. It got better during the weekends. Tobias came to Stockholm again and we went ice skating! It was absolutely beautiful to say the least. So next week, I will be working towards filling up 2/5 after works before I head off to Uppsala to visit the lovely Lovisa!

We made a miniature snowman from the excess ice and named him Bob. Isn't he the most adorable!

Halloween 2014

I usually don't celebrate halloween. It isn't a very big thing in Singapore or more like I wasn't into the whole dressing up thing. This year however, the company I work for threw a halloween party that was nothing short than awesome. Dressing up and doing make up with my colleagues got me into the mood and seeing the most creative costumes ever made me even more so.Tobias came all the way from Gothenburg to attend the party and Lovisa came from Uppsala. Of course, Julius managed to get his ass out of his bed from Skanstull so that was another achievement! I dressed up as a puppet while Tobias had it easy with a puppet master (I prepared all the props with Lovisa's help of course). Halloween is just over but I am looking forward to the next one already!
