My husband caught a cold, so…


Another day of my vacation in Finland, but I didn’t do anything remotely Finnish. Not going to sauna. Not exploring the forests. I did eat some berries, but I didn’t do any picking. What I mostly did is struggling with the new theme for my blog so my day didn’t really go to waste. Oh, and taking this very fancy picture:

Soft grass and pretty toes

That’s taken on my parents-in-law building site for the new house. The lovely 90 square meters 2-story house is located right by the sea, with HUGE yards and just beside a small forest. Perfect for my nature-loving in-laws, not so nice for me because I can’t take my heels. But then again, walking barefoot under the sun, on soft grass is quite something. And my self-pedicure is just so, so lovely.

For your information, that’s ESSENCE nail polish, from their Show Your Feet line. The thing only costed me €1.65, and as they claimed, actually last quite long. It’s been a week now since I did this, and my toes still look like they’re freshly pedicured.  The color might be a bit too vibrant for my skin tone, as they’re a bit pale right now, but as a stand alone color, they’re fantastic. The color in the bottle is actually mint green, but when painted on your nails, they’re actually dark turquoise.

Anyway, speaking of colors, I decided to change the background and avatar picture in this blog. I just recently lost my only pair of glasses, and reading on a dark screen is such a pain. So I did myself a favor and changed the blog to a brighter theme. MONSTERS AND CANDIES! Aren’t they cute? :D

Food Review: Ajino Sushi-BAR, Mannheim


O7 - 27, Mannheim | +49 621/32670298 ‎

When I lived in Indonesia from Sept 2011 – January 2012, often Lauri (The Husband) told me that he ate at this Ajino Sushi Bar in downtown area of Mannheim when he’s too lazy to cook. The price that they offered is quite a deal for the All-You-Can-Eat menu, but it really depends on what time you’re going to eat there.

Basically Ajino opens at Monday till Saturday 11:00 am – 23:00. On Sunday or holidays, they are open from 12:00 – 22:00. It is quite nice to eat here on Sunday, if you have money, since all of the other restaurants and shops would be closed at the day. Here’s the price (by March 2012) that they offered for the All-You-Can-Eat sushi:

Midday, 11:30 – 16:30  = € 12.90

Evening, 17:00 – 21:30 = € 17.90

Sunday & Holidays     = € 14.90

They also have 10% Student Discount for a la carte menu, but if I wasn’t mistaken the discount doesn’t apply to the all-you-can-eat menu. The a la carte sushi dishes cost around €3-3.90, while they also have Sushi Set that starts from €13, perfect if you want to eat different kinds of sushi but thinks the all-you-can-eat would be too much for you.
