Busy bee

Sorry for the radio silence. I’ve been extremely busy preparing for Yummers.me infosession and I haven’t had time to blog. I’ve got tons of material but just no time to write. This is to let you know I haven’t disappeared, I’m thinking about all that support me and send me messages waiting to hear from…

Toreson Icelandic Horse Stables Vierumäki

I first noticed this lovely stable on my first trip to Vierumäki. Being a person who’s not so active the thought of going to a sports retreat is something I tend to steer clear from. I have a few sports I enjoy doing and horse riding is one of them. I’m a big fan of…

Knowing when your house is a home and the kitchen project

It’s common that when we make a big decision such as purchasing a new home, a car, a bicycle and so on. We want to have everything checked and crossed out in our wishlist, however it’s not always possible. Back in 2009, May to be exact, was when we made yet another decision to move….

This week in motion -Mid September of 2016

Today has been quite hectic as I had a few things I needed to get done and realising that I need to make a few calls and also have a few phone meetings. I am having an active week again with many things planned, but sadly I don’t have time to complete the ‘Nasi Lemak’…

One Week Forward – Autumn’s coming

It’s been an interesting week and I’ve been extremely active. Too active for the likes of me. I manage to get a some things forward and even had a little bit of fun. On Monday, we had the kitchen designer visiting to get the measurements of our current kitchen and hear about our wishes, we haven’t…

Dr. ‘Perkele’ Chocolate Chip Cookies (Soft style)

I’m a sucker for cookies, who isn’t? I love the mini crispy types that can be bought in Malaysia from Famous Amos. I tried for years to replicate the recipe and the closest I got was well, still far but had the same crunch, just didn’t last as long as Mr. Amos’s. My daughter was…

Food allergies and recipes

I struggle with some minor food allergies that sometimes make people wonder. I don’t do raw tomatoes after battling against an itch in the throat I had eating some growing up. I avoid them like the plague (as the saying goes) however if they are cooked or preserved in some ways I will consume them. Alcohol…

The Empanada Experience Continues -JC’s Mash Up 2

    I sold Empanadas at the fair in Kivistö yesterday (3rd of September 2016, Saturday) while a friend sold really delicious cookies. Since I needed to make a larger batch than when I did in the first experiment, I made a small alteration. Here is half the recipe. I’ve added some images of some of the items I…

Getting Back in Motion

I’m physically lazy by nature. I’d rather Netflix and chill (NO, not that kind) than go out for an evening to do something. So if I do make an effort to go out with anyone, it takes a lot out of me. Same goes with travelling, I love it, but many times I just prefer to…
