My Sri Lankan Tea! ;)

Written by Jiny on .

One of my colleagues went to Sri Lanka – yes, Sri Lanka – for vacation. OMG, I felt like packing myself in her suitcase and enjoy the holiday too! Haha.

I already told her about the country, and all the places she had to visit, and I even thought her some tamil and Sinhalese words, just in case.. As it could be useful ;)

She came back 2 weeks ago, and was in an incredible love with the country. She, and her husband, went to the Maldives too, but it seems like she liked Sri Lanka more. Of course, everything there is cheaper too, and there are much more of adventure. She showed me some of the pictures taken over there, some of them were of the food, they got. I was very surprised, as she ate loads of hoppers (appam) and spring hoppers (idiyappam) with sambol/lunu miris, and they got so much delicious, spicy rice and curries too! God, I suddenly realized how much I miss Sri Lanka, and that I had to go back very soon. There are so much so experience, and I have to see my family ;)

Nike Love

Written by Jiny on .

 

I ordered some clothing 2 weeks ago from nelly.com and zalando.dk. I was looking for some Nike stuff, for my lovely Nike collection, because I love Nike so much. I love their designs, and all their collections are awesome. Very stylish and colourful, in exactly the way I want it to be!

I feel Nike can be worn as both every day and workout clothes. I’ve already got numbers of Nike tops and pants, but I feel like I never can have too much of these wonderful clothes :D

This time, from nelly.com, I bought this Nike Tee Air Max t-shirt in white/pink, and it has the number 01 printed on the front, and the logo on the back – that’s why I like this one.

The other one is from the Nike Sports Wear collection, bought on zalando.dk – this one is fully pink with dotted print in lighter pinks and white, of the Nike logo. Lovely, isn’t it? :)

Besides this pinky t-shirt, I also bought a simple cardigan (from Vero Moda), as I felt I need something new for work. This one can be used with whatever you want, and create a very young and stylish look ;)

Have a great evening peopz :)

LifeUpdate: January '15

Written by Jiny on .

 

January ’15 has been so awesome. Beside New Year, I really don’t like January, because it’s so cold and there’ll be a lot of snow. Yet this January was really awesome, with fun with friends and shopping – yes, January sale! Believe me, I’ve never been that much lucky when it comes to this kind of sale, because I’ve never been able to find something I liked, but this time, I found some great stuff, FINALLY! :D

I was not at home for Thai Pongal, neither last year, but my parents visited me last year as I was moving to Aarhus. This year was kinda strange, because I’ve used to celebrate Pongal with my family and eat a lot of delicious food and visit the temple. So I actually looked forward to come home that weekend. I posted some pictures in the last post, but I forgot to write about the sugarcane my dad’s bought for the pongal. My brother arrived on time, but what’s fun is that he wasn’t allowed to taste this sugarcane before I came home. Haha. I remember tasting the sugarcane for the very first time when I was I England once, I was 9 then. Then I also tasted it in Sri Lanka, and some here in Denmark too – of course they were all imported from Sri Lanka. My mom told me, that the more purple it is, the sweeter it is, and the more spaces between the rings on the cane, the better it’ll be, because then there’ll be less to throw out/waste.

This one was really purple, but unfortunately the spaced between the rings were small, so we had to throw away a lot of it – but even though we only got some small pieces, they were good :)

Here’s a picture of some of the clothes I bought. Some from Vila and some from Magasin. I was even lucky enough to buy a Tommy Hilfiger skirt for half price and a very beautiful top from Karen Millen, for half of the price too. Yay! ;)

                      j153

Of course, this is just a small happiness, and I guess many people today think they’re so blessed, only because they are “rich” enough to buy expensive stuff. I actually don’t like this kind of attitude, and that’s why I just bought some expensive clothes on sale. Seriously. There are so many other things, that we can thank God for, and be proud and feel blessed about ;)

Last part of January was more awesome: I went to Odense to visit some friends. 4 girls for Uni, and we decided to have a sleepover at M’s. What a great weekend. It was so nice to see them all again, as we’re split all over the country since our graduation. We went to the Rosengårdcenter, and ate dinner at Jensens. I loooove their cheesecake so much :D

                       j154

Later on we bought some candy and chips at Bilka, and went to M's apartment and watched some movies and Disney cartoons (yes, we still love Disney).

                     

Then we went to drop L at her home.. And it was about 2.30 am. Was a bit strange to be back in Odense, but Iøve missed this town a lot.

Unfortunately, M has a cat, I’m really afraid of them. Whenever it came nearby I screamed like a freak, and I guess the cat got even more scared of me. Poor cat..

                      j155

Breakfast at Baresso. :)

                      j157 2

And then L came to visit me in Aarhus, and we had a nice evening with delicious cake, and later lovely food at Pearl India :)

And yes, my orchid looks a bit dead. OMG. Anyways, I'm still blessed ;)

Oh happy weekend!

I usually go to Herning in the weekends, because I need to get all my clothes washed (yes, we don’t have proper laundry facilities where I live!), and of course I need to see my parents too! – And I am teaching a girl in Carnatic vocal, which takes place on Fridays.

I think the last weekend was quite good, and my parents had bought a lovely “Kaj-kage” – it’s a cake filled with strawberry cream and decorated with marzipan, here green marzipan. I love marzipan so much btw.

Another surprise from my “student” (I don’t like the word student, because I’m not that prof. at all); she gave me this lovely iPhone case as a post-xmas gift. So sweet of her, right? :)

                           janweek2

Back in 2010, when we went to India, I bought this cute elephant, made in something marble (I guess). But unfortunately, I accidentally came to put a book on it, so it broke. I then bought some superglue to fix it, and check out the result – you can’t see it has been broken ;)

Amma made so much lovely food this weekend, oh well she always does, but this weekend was just too good! My parents bought breadfruit (eerappalaakaai) for making chips out of it, but I asked amma to make it into curry too, so she made it for me – and believe me it was so good. Yummy, loved the taste of it. Breadfruit has great benefits, so I’m glad I get so much nutrition, being a vegetarian. Well, of course we get loads of nutrition, and I actually consider vegetarians for being healthier than meat-eaters ;) And she also made cassava vadais. Something I’ve never heard about before, and I was kinda like “WTH”! Haha. But trust me, I loved these cassava vadais so much, that I ate about 4-5 of them Ö. I even like them more than uzhundhu/medhu vadais!

If there’s something I can’t live without it’s chocolate – dark chocolate! I really love those from Summerbird, and they also sell these chocolates for chocolate milk. They’re SO yummy! :)

                          janweek6

I’ll be posting another post on these Summerbird delights another day – I’ve bought several goodies at them.

Just came home from fitness; it feels so good to be on track again, after a small break. I almost stayed at home because of the weather - it has been so much storm since friday, and it still goes on - but then I decided not to stay at home, and just burn some calories. I started this year's fitness with some zumba, because I love to dance, and I think I'm gonna involve a little bit more of dancing in my training, so it will become a little more funnier. I actually used to dance very  much, but after moving to Aarhus, I dropped it a bit, and focused more on strength and fitness training rather than dance, but then I strarted missing it ;)

Types of fitness'dance I like, and g to are zumba and the Les Mills Bodyjam. I've tried some other types too, but they weren't my cup of tea ;)

After coming home from fitness, I jsust felt like playing some music, so I recorded this small cover, and uploaded it on Insta and Facebook, and now I just uploaded it on YouTube too - this is actually my first on YouTube. Tis small part is from an old song, composed by ARR - it's one of my faves too! Nonetheless, this part I played, is my fave raaga too - Sahana ;)

Here you go!
