Shabu Shabu

Today I first went to the Holi color festival with Steffen, his sister and a friend of hirs, then Steffen and I went to ShabuShabu for dinner. The Holi festival was a great experience but the music was constantly the same and not much happened so it was enough after half a day. Happy I went though as it is completely different from other festivals. This one was based on an indian color festival so we bought color powder and danced. I didn’t take any photos though so will have to get them from Sølvi first.
Shabu Shabu is a japanese restaurant where they have all you can eat sushi and grill, but instead of a buffet like I am used to when its all you can eat, they have a menu and you order in round. Each person orders five dishes per round and they “give you four rounds,” but if you can still eat I think you can. If u just order everything and waste food you have to pay extra so you really eat what you try. We made it to the end of round two when we had to throw in the towel and have our desert. Another round we wouldnt even have touched the food. We had everything from shrimps/crabs/octopus to chicken/beef/soup and to my amazement I actually liked everything but the crab! Crazy crazy crazy! Haha!

Birthday in the sun

Last Sunday we celebrated Ida’s 13th birthday which was really fun! Since it has been such a chaos since I got back with room viewings, studying, handball and enjoying summer, I have not had the chance to post this earlier. We had a BBQ in the garden with family and were as many as 25 people! But we spent both Saturday and Sunday preparing food so it was a big success and everyone had loads to eat.

Amsterdam Open Air

On Sunday I went to my first proper festival. It is called Amsterdam Open Air and was so much fun! There was great music and so many different stages, lovely weather, and lots of other things you could also do(ex. Granny bingo and haunted house). I went with a group of study friends and we were there from 1-11!

Amsterdam Beach handball tournament

This week has just passed so quickly and so did the weekend. At the moment I am on my way home, so I thought I would share some pictures from last weekend while I wait.
On the Saturday I played a beach handball tournament. Even though we didn’t win much it was so much fun to play! The weater was amazing and I haven’t played a handball game in almost two years so the little kick it gives wa great!

My goals for the next 30 days

For the next month I want to enjoy summer and not worry too much about studying, but still do enough to pass all the subjects I have now. I also want to train well, to find a new room, and to enjoy some time with my friends here before the summer vacation 🙂

28 – Something that you miss

This one is easy. I miss my family, my friends back home, and I miss having a dog. I have always been very close to my family so moving away I really do miss them, but I just look even more forward to seeing them now, and I cannot wait for the summer as I can be around them for a month. I am so happy that I moved to Amsterdam though as I love it here, so I guess missing them is just the backside to that.

My favorite movie

I am not 100% sure what my favorite movie is, but I really like romantic comedies and comedies in general. I hate horror movies, and love to watch action movies when I am with people but I really cannot do it on my own. My favorite movie used to be 13 going on 30. I watched it for the first time when I was 11 and since then I watched it so much that I know most of it by heart.

4a_156_0_13GoingOn30The movie is about a 13 year old girl who is not the most popular at school and who really tries her best to become one of the “cool kids”. Then for her birthday she wishes she uses wishing dust which she got from her best friend to wish she is 30, and the next morning she wakes up as one of the most successful workers in her absolute favorite magazine, but after some time living the famous, posh life, she starts to miss those that loved her even when she was not so successful, and starts to reflect on how things could have been if she would not have focused so much on being perfect. She then wishes herself back to 13 and lives life again, this time appreciating the “right” people.
