I’ve decided to go on a blog break of sorts – I have been regularly posting for so long that it’s time to take a short break and recharge. But before that, let’s take part in Cee’s Share Your World, one of my favourite challenges out there.
Do you prefer juice or fruit?
I prefer fruit! I don’t usually drink juice at all except at a hotel breakfast. One fruit I miss from Asia is the pomelo. It’s difficult to find delicious pomelos here, they are often dry and tasteless.
Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it?
Hmm.. cities in Finland are probably small towns somewhere else. I lived in two different cities in Finland till I was 7 years old. That’s when we moved to Kuala Lumpur. Which was a big city for sure! I liked all the places I grew up but KL has a special place in my heart. Unfortunately it’s difficult to recognize it anymore as so much has changed since the 80s.
If you were to paint a picture of your childhood, what colors would you use?
I would use green, pink, blue. I had a colorful childhood.
Ways to Relax List: Make a list of what relaxes you and helps you feel calm.
If I’m feeling stressed, it’s difficult to concentrate on a book or tv. Then blogging can be a good idea. Also going for a long walk can help, especially in the forest. But the best remedy is meeting up with a friend for coffee. The sea also calms me – I am often very stressed before going sailing as I feel we don’t have enough time or getting ready has worn me out. But once we get the sails up, I relax.
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am grateful for a night out with girlfriends – we found a great pub called Latva and an laid back restaurant Lungi which served excellent food. I’m also grateful for an efficient but relaxed Sunday – it was also a very sunny weekend, so long walks outside were very enjoyable. I am looking forward to going to Germany to the biggest boat fair in Europe – boot Düsseldorf – we went there last year too.
Isn’t London beautiful?
Have a great week everyone!
