Normal 0 21 false false false FI X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 Olin eilen Helsingin vanhalla ylioppilastalolla aivan mahtavassa viini tastingissä. ”The Versatility of the Pinot Trio” jonka piti MW Anne Krebiehl, Saksan Pinot Trion monimuotoisuudesta. Saksassa viljellään kolmea Pinot rypälettä, Weissburgunder joka on sama kuin Pinot Blanc, Grauburgunder taas Pinot Gris (tai Pinot Grigio) sekä Spätburgunder joka taas on Pinot Noir, siis samat ennestään tutut rypäleet...

|Supermass |- Return -

Muutin tämän viikon alusta treeniä niin, että nyt käyn aamulla tyhjällä vatsalla aamuaerobisella joka toinen päivä tasasykkeellä tunnin verran ja joka toinen päivä hiit-tyylillä tehtynä. Tällä hetkellä olen menossa kahdeksassa minuutissa, neljästä aloitettiin. Punttitreeni on viiden tunnin kuluttua aerobisesta, olen jakanut treenit kuudelle päivälle eli lauantaihin asti mennään ja sunnuntaisin on vapaapäivä. Tämän viikon ensimmäiset päivät ovat olleet henkisesti...

Roadside Burger Blog -

This was my third burger with a journalist from Helsingin Sanomat. He's making a story about hamburgers and I was interviewed for the article while tasting several burgers. Morrison's Grill & Green is a small restaurant in downtown Helsinki. Back in the day this place was called Dick Tracy's Diner and they were know to be a quick and cheap lunch restaurant. Only the interior and name has changed, everything else seemed to be as it was. The menu is almost the same as it used to be and they still...

Roadside Burger Blog -

This was my fourth and last burger with a journalist from Helsingin Sanomat. He's making a story about hamburgers and I was interviewed for the article while tasting several burgers. In the 90's there were three big burger chains in Finland - McDonalds, Carrols and Hesburger. Two of these were original US based burger chains. You know the McDonals but also Carrols originally came to Finland as a franchise from the United States. Carrols Corporation was found in Syracusa NY, and during the 60's...

Roadside Burger Blog -

This was my second burger with a journalist from Helsingin Sanomat. He's making a story about hamburgers and I was interviewed for the article while tasting several burgers. Harrin nakki (Harri's Hotdog) is a typical Finnish grill kiosk. A little booth standing in the corner of local park in the middle of Helsinki. Back in the days the architecture varied from trailers to wooden booths but the city of Helsinki standardized the outlook of these kiosks a few years back. This particular kiosk has...

Roadside Burger Blog -

This was my first burger with a journalist from Helsingin Sanomat. He's making a story about hamburgers and I was interviewed for the article while tasting several burgers. The Kämp was opened in 1887 and it was the first luxury hotel in Helsinki. It has seen the good and the worst days of Finland from two wars to independence. The Kämp restaurants were patronised by renowned politicians, artists, composers and writers. For example, composer Jean Sibelius, writer Eino Leino and painter Akseli...

Junkie and Whore -

As mentioned in an earlier post, there is an exception to my junkie-dealers story. I will call him Crush , for he was a real love-crush from the begining. I kept hearing about this "crush" guy in quite a while. His turkish name made me think he's some old, fat, black, ugly pervert, also known as paranoid, so I was in no hurry of meeting him or having someone buy me from him. Till that one day, when me and my best-friend/boyfriend-for-the-world D . had no place to buy from and he comes with this...

Precious Illusion -

I love tasting new sodas. This was just ok, I don’t think I’ll buy it again though (at least not in Finland, it’s 2€ per can). I got a new passport! And it has all these cute animals, including my favorite, a hedgehog. Chico’s used to have these yummy soy patties, but they don’t serve it anymore. They have two non-meat patties, Quorn and veggie, but neither of them are vegan. Luckily this Chico’s I was in had few of the previously mentioned soy patties left, so we (me and Ulla)...

Elämää koivun ja palmun alla -

Helsingissä käydessä on mukava testata ravintoloita, joissa ei ole aiemmin käynyt. Tällä kertaa menimme pizzalle uuteen Pizzeria Via Tribunaliin Sofiankadulla,  http://viatribunali.fi/ . Ravintola avattiin toukokuussa ja se mainostaa itseään aitona napolilaisena pizzeriana . Tämän takaa italiasta tilattu tonnien painoinen avotuliuuni . Paikka on mutkaton ja palvelu ystävällistä ja rentoa, joskin siisteyteen voitaisiin kiinnittää hieman enemmän huomiota. Ovella oli pieni jono...

Cartaverde -

When the whole immigration mess, we getting incorrect and corrupt info from USCIS happened in 2007 and we acted trusting that information, and the whole delay of .. 770+ days and no updates since since the worst day of my life, I feel I've ranted and ranted and ranted. Yet I never go to the details on what the daily life is. It feels repetitive, as it's been all inside my head since that day. And I feel it's enough to have said it once. But it keeps haunting day after day. When I was supposed...

Mom and Daughter adventuring -

Ok,  We could say that Dusseldorf's airport toilets are not in the best condition. Three times we visited and every time Emily get the broken one- first it was lock, second it was full of paper/not functioning and third one did not have 'plastic'cover just pure porsline. So she change to my perfectly functioning toilets... Quite funny situaton, spesially the third one...  When having some lunch at some streetfood restaurant Emily said again one perfect impression... Make me think, do young...

Toppenbra Viinikellari -

Tästä on siis aikaa vaikka kuinka kauan, mutta… Kutsu kävi Höyrylaivaosakeyhtiö S/S Ukko-Pekan tiloihin ja testaamaan viimeisiä tarjokkaita kesälistalle. Samat viinithän löytyvät käsittääkseni sekä Vaakahuoneen Paviljongilta että emoyhtiön Rymättylän Herrankukkaron muistakin tiloista. Erittäin positiivisena yllätyksenä tulivat kesälistapruuvin alkupaloina tarjotut Jokikellarin unkarilaiset viinit. Sympaattinen herramies Alajos Hajba kävi kertomassa meille Unkarista...

Finn again wakes -

The Saudi Alhamedi , one of the funniest and most prolific bloggers I know, has written a hilarious article about the muttawa spreading their fundamentalist tentacles to Britain. Accordin to the Eastern Eye , Burger King is to withdraw thousands of ice-cream cones because the design on the packaging resembles the Arab word for Allah. The company has acted after the coincidence was spotted by a Muslim customer, Rashad Akhtar, at its Park Royal outlet last week , who later telephoned its head...

Maamaa Maailmalla -

Swoooosh!! Tommoinen ääni vaan kuului, kun viime viikko suhahti ohi! Meidän viimeviikonlopun Milanon retki oli oikein kiva....vaikka meinasi mennä pieleen ihan heti alkuunsa! Kun olimme lähdössä kotoota kohti junaa, ja kumarruin alas sitomaan kengännauhoja, niin mulle iski yhtäkkiä ihan hirveän huono olo. Juna-asemalla istuskelin penkillä sykkyrässä ja yritin hengittää raitista ilmaa, jotta huono olo menisi pois. Hani jo kyseli, että haluanko jättää matkan väliin, mutta...

Olin noteerannut HOK-Elannon kampanjan, jossa pienpanimot esittelevät tuotteitaan konsernin eri panimoissa tällä viikolla. Ymmärsin, että uuden Mäntyharjun Nilkko-panimon tasting Kaislassa kuuluu tähän samaan kampanjaan. Lähdin silti kävellen valumaan Vallilasta alas Kaisaniemeen ajatellen tsekkaavani Nilkon IPAn Kaislassa. Satuin saapumaan paikalle melko tarkalleen klo 18, jolloin happening alkoi ja Frank Poirot heitti minut mukaan ohjattuun maistelutilaisuuteen. Tilaisuus maksoi 10...

Santa Barbaran seudulla Keski-Kaliforniassa vaikuttava Firestone Walker on kovaa mainetta kantava panimo, nykyään fuusioitunut belgialaisen Duvel-Moortgat -yhtiön kanssa. Panimo on tunnettu anglofiilisyydestään, siellä kypsytetään oluita jopa klassisella Burton Union -tyylillä. Kävin panimon kulmilla Kalifornian Buelltonissa 2002 ja oluita on tullut vastaan myöhemmilläkin USA-reissuilla, mutta Suomessa en ole tainnut niihin aiemmin törmätä. Sain kutsun maistelutilaisuuteen, joka...

Viskiharrastukseni halcyon-päivinä 1980-luvulla Caol Ilalla oli lähes samanlainen myyttinen maine kuin Port Ellenillä tai Ardbegillä, viskiä oli saatavilla vain itsenäisiltä pullottajilta. Tislaamo ei kuitenkaan ollut suljettuna, se ei vaan pullottanut single maltiaan. 90-luvulla tilanne muuttui ja Caol Ila on arkipäiväistynyt ja jäänyt ehkä aliarvostetuksi. Edelleenkin suurin osa tisleestä menee blendeihin, kyseessä on Islayn suurin tislaamo. Petri Vesanen totesi maistelun...




Aina se on mielessä -

Taas takana neljä päivää ihania Italia-elämyksiä. Ei siitä mihinkään pääse, että Italia on vienyt sydämeni, ja sinne on suunnattava aina uudestaan ja uudestaan. Mutta kukapa voisi olla rakastamatta mahtavia makuelämyksiä, viehättäviä vanhoja kaupunkeja ja mukavan hidasta tunnelmaa. En minä ainakaan. Veronan vanha kaupunki. Tällä kertaa lennettiin Lappeenrannasta Bergamoon. Ikävä vaan että nämä lennot loppuvat lokakuun jälkeen. Toivottavasti eivät kuitenkaan...

Katz & the City- Life is sweet in NYC -

My sister came to visit from Finland a couple of weeks ago and wanted to visit Napa, Santa Cruz and drive along the Highway 1. So we did all that in just two days. First stop was Napa Valley. We arrived pretty late and since most wineries close between 4-5pm we only got to visit two of them along the Silverado Trail : The Black Stallion and Mumm Napa. The original plan was to rent bicycles from our hotel and ride along the Silverado Trail which has multiple wineries, but we did not have the...

I received my first Graze box yesterday. The snacks it contained were The Herb Garden (herb and onion peanuts, baked herb bites and oregano rice crackers), Sun Dance (dried mango, milk chocolate sunflower seeds and green raisins), Eleanor's Apple Crumble (sultanas, cinnamon and honey almonds and dried apple) and Summer Pudding (dried strawberries, blackcurrants, cranberries and sponge pieces). I loved all of them, but my favourite individual food was the cinnamon and honey almonds. Incredibly...

Title: These Hands Author: mauled_down Pairing: Agron/Nasir Rating: R Summary: If the blade had struck but an inch higher, Nasir would not be cleaning a wound. He would be burying a lover. Word Count: 1,553 Disclaimer: Regardless of the rumours, I don’t own them, nor do I make any money playing with them. Sorry folks. If the blade had struck but an inch higher, Nasir would not be cleaning a wound. He would be burying a lover. With careful hand and limber fingers he wiped the blood from the...

Vuokatti 1 Vuokatti 2 Vuokatti 3 The photographs were taken at Vuokatti on July 4th. This morning I walked for 1 1/2 hours in Petikko, tasting cranberries and blueberries. It remains to be seen how hot it will get today. The weather forecast promises 25 °C, and 30-40 mm of rain, accompanied by thunder.

holidays done. for me anyway, doctor has until friday.  Cornwall and Edinburgh were very nice indeed. the first one with majestic views and easy chilling at Marianne's lovely house & garden. and the latter being cute & gothic at the same time. we went strolling around the city tasting and drinking everything in our way. VV & Mikko hosted us but we also met an old friend of doctors who moved to UK like 10 years ago. Cornwall. grilling & chilling!  we had one super sunny hot day, rest...

Materian ihmeellinen maailma -

Lämpimän kesäpäivän kunniaksi puuhattiin kaverin kanssa pientä photoshoottia meidän puutarhassa, juomia maistellen tottakai :) ( Olen oppinut tekemään helvetin hyvää mansikka margariittaa! ) Minulla tuntuu riittävän aina näitä hyviä ideoita valokuvien suhteen, nyt halusin välttämättä lempi huonekaluni kuvaan mukaan. Löysin tuon upean vaaleanpunaisen mekon Ebaystä. Mekko on alunperin ostettu Collectifilta hintaan 150 puntaa, mutta minä maksoin siitä ainoastaan 50£ ^^ //...
