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! ;)
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
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..
Breakfast at Baresso. :)
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 ;)
