Life in Photos #4

Gosh, turning this blog into a bilingual blog is so much more work than I expected! I have a hard time translating English to Dutch (even though Dutch is my native language… ^^”) Therefor, everything’s taking a bit more time than I expected, but I hope you guys have little more patience.. 🙂 In the mean time, I’ll try to update a bit more too. Past few weeks have been hectic. I went to my first wedding (excluding the one I was present at when I was about 4), baked, turned ¼-centuries old, got lovely presents and ate away hehe… Today’s Life in Photos #4!

First, the wedding! What canI say? It was super fancy!! The bride and groom even arrived by helicopter… ‘nough said, right? Unfortunately, I’m really not that good at being fancy. I prefer jeans and a comfy sweater, but that wasn’t the dress code. Thankfully, I managed. And the most important part? Yup, the bride looked absolutely stunning

A few days after the wedding I went for a lunch with Lissy. We decided to try something new and went to “Het Concerthuis”. Unfortunately, their menu consisted mainly of vegetarian/vegan food. I love meat. However, I decided to try out their mini falafel pitas and Liss’ had some lamb skewers (the only meat on the menu). The flavor was great, but luckily we ordered a side of homemade fries too, because I was still hungry after finishing the pitas in a few quick bites XD The mayonaise was lovely by the way.

For my birthday (and my sister’s birthday, 6 days after mine), we went for Japanese ramen at “Ramen-ya” in Amsterdam. I love love love anything noodles. ♥_♥ I had the sesame chicken, my sisters had the kimchi ramen, and my boyfriend and my sister’s boyfriend had “Hakata”. My boyfriend ate the “Mount Fuji”-version of the Hakata ramen, which is a GIANT (seriously) bowl of ramen. He got a spot on the wall of fame for finishing the whole bowl within a reasonable amount of time. Thumbs up!

In addition to the birthday lunch, I also got a couple of cool present. My younger sister gave me this beautiful bag. She also bought me a book from my childhood I was dieing to get: Jip & Janneke. Anyone know this? When I was little I was so excited over this book; I got it at the library when I couldn’t even read yet hahaha.. I just knew the stories by heart and pretended to read :’) #nerdalert Anyway, my other sister gave me a carkit as the one I currently have is half-broken-ish ^^”. My dad gave me money and my boyfriend gave me a trip to Antwerpen! (so excited for this one) Lissy got me a gift certificate for any restaurant. Food is always good, right? 😉

Also, I recently started learning Korean again. This time I want to do it properly. I’m even looking for a Korean penpall 😀 I just love the Korean language and as you guys might know I love South-Korea in general. Our Seoul-trip last year totally confirmed it. Oh and I’m also completely HOOKED on this new Korean drama: “Healer“. I already finished all episodes, but the drama is SO GOOD that I’m re-watching. (And Ji Chang Wook is so handsome ♥_♥) You can stream the drama here. Try it! Just hearing the theme-song already makes me smile. So awesome.

Finally, some baked goodies. I owe you guys the recipe for these cute piggy cake pops, the creamy bunny/cat (haven’t decided what they look like yet) cakepops and the recipe for these buttery vanilla ring cookies. I made the cake pops for my dad to give away to kids of his customers. They absolutely loved it! Some even said it was too cute to eat 😀 As for the cookies, my colleagues devoured the whole batch. Completely.gone.

Love,

My Linh

  1. Ah you two look so cute and dressy with matching red colour. The veil looks very long and helicopter – you’re moving in the big leagues o_O. Such sweet pops, love mount Fuji sized dinners ^-^! Yes I know that book, lots of fun and childhood memories!

    1. Awww thank you, Jasmine! He made his tie match with my dress 😀 Haha the bride is moving in the big leagues 😛 The wedding was in Belgium by the way; near the border (Lanaken?) Everybody who knows Dutch knows Jip and Janneke, right? I love the sweet short stories ^^ Hope you’re having an awesome time in Australia! (So jealous 😉 )

  2. First of all, happy birthday!! You looked absolutely stunning at the wedding! ^_^ Also, you always make me crave food!! The ramen look awesome. My mom usually cooks the thicker ones, but I really want some of those thin ones now *_* Jip en Janneke was life! Especially the HEMA goodies they have (in particular the yoghurtrozijnen, omg). Love your little cakepops, they are adorable. Where can I hire you? 😉

    1. Thank you, Olivia! I had a blast 😀 Haha I hear that a lot (That I make people crave food). The ramen was really good. Unfortunately, it’s so far away from where I live T_T Jip and Janneke is awesome, right? I still love it. Childhoodmemories… <3 awesomeness. Also, I will gladly make you some cakepops 😉

  3. ALSO. I am so putting Healer on my to-watch list. It looks AWESOMEEE. Although, I kind of do need to finish Liar Game (I started watching that quite a few months ago but got stuck somewhere in the middle) and Empress of China. But it’s so long and kind of slow ;-;
