Hello and welcome to my new blog, Madame Qikas.
This is my second blog and I hope that this would prosper in a longer term rather than my old blog, also hosted in WordPress, NottdeNutt (circa September 2007 – May 2008) . Different from NottdeNutt, a blog that I made in my teenage years, Madame Qikas would probably be more mature in articles, and not so emo anymore.
I opted for the screen name Madame Qikas for this blog, the name mostly inspired by this really kick-ass picture my cousin took meanwhile helping my pre-nuptial photography. Thus the name Madame Qikas was born.
For those who read my old blog and would like to know what has happened in the past 3 years, let me tell you (some). I quit my university study in Nanyang Technological University Singapore, for reasons that I will not feed. I am now still in a relationship with BB (Bule Botak), and actually happily married ever since 6 May 2011. From now on, I will refer to him as The Husband. I am now living in Finland, specifically in the Aura Municipality, and greatly enjoying my life as an Indonesian expatriate.
Madame Qikas would tell you everything (that she wants to) in the blog. From daily cooking recipes to current events. From film photography to enhanced food pictures. If you want to know more about Madame Qikas aka Natasha H. Soini, you could follow my twitter here. I mostly tweet to my friends in Indonesia, but healthy daily complaints will be written mostly in English.
