Making Spring Rolls with Amaia

Benj studying hard..

.. while I take photos of myself
Same old, same old

The other day Vidar and I went to Amaia's house to make spring rolls:

Vidar was quickly put to good use where men belong:

Shredding carrots in the kitchen

Peeling scampis


Our spring rolls were filled with diced scampi, shredded carrot, minced meat, onion and spices.

And the most important ingredient?

Waaait for it..

No wholesome asian cooking without the beloved MSG!

Separating spring roll wrappers

Wrapped spring rolls waiting to be fried


On a side note:

Yesterday Vidar's mom said I reminded her of Grace Jones.

I don't get it

(Photo source:

Haha! I love it!

And I think Vidar does too.

Kickin' it with the Homies

I need to buy a ticket to China soon.

I'll be studying at Beijing University from July 'til December.


Meanwhile I need to learn enough Chinese to survive:

At the language lab

Heidi 'loves' being my
(in crime)


Lotte and I are the only ones
planning on going to China next semester
(out of the gang who studied Japanese who's now taking Chinese)

Say what??
The teacher caught me swearing into the
earphones today.
I tell you, it aint easy to
say many of the tounge twisters
in our Chinese dialogues

Heidi being über-genki

Asaki, the midget

Asaki and Dag - the midgets

At every street corner in Oslo
at this time of year
they've got big signs
warning about
blocks of ice sliding off the roofs

But they don't give any alternative

Where am I supposed to walk?
In the middle of the busy street?

Last winter a young guy walking on the side walk
with his girlfriend got hit in the head
by a block of ice sliding of the roof
He's paralyzed and has permanent
brain damage


Since we're poor students, we went to this hoo-haa café called Pascal for some macaroons.

I had two and a half of them and felt neusious for the rest of the day. Won't be having macaroons again any time soon, that's for sure.


How do I do this again


You can take a black belt out of TaeKwon-Do class
but you can't take the TaeKwon-Do
out of the black belt

(Please let the winter be over soon, I'm cold)

Life is being (blissfully) uneventful, yadda-yadda-yah.

I study, work, eat, sleep and torment my friends and boyfriend.


Dag offered me a thingy where you put your iPod
when you're working out

I don't work out

I eat

(Dag would make a cheap date,
getting drunk after only a whiff of wine)

And drink

And wait for spring.
