Tyhmästä päästä kärsii koko blogi. -

The picture on the left, that looks more like some coastal place in India is actually a picture clicked in the US by a friend of mine. The one on the right, that appears more like a National Park in the US, is actually something another friend clicked in India. The one in the middle is what I clicked a few years back when I was probably flying somewhere in the middle of these two countries. You will understand towards the end the correlation between these pictures and the post. I've had...

Napapiiriltä New Yorkiin -

Mistä tunnistaa mukavan kaupunginosan? Lukemattomista kasvisruokaa tarjoavista ravintoloista sekä koiran paskasta kadulla. East Village on Manhattanin boheemeinta, ainutlaatuisinta, hipeintä ja liberaaleinta aluetta. Näillä alueilla viihtyvät yleensä "vaihtoehtoiset" vaatekaupat, pikku krääsäkaupat sekä levykaupat. Hakusessa oli vinyyliä ja lähinnä second-hand sellaista mielellään. Tässäpä muutama levykauppapoiminta: Etherea Täältä kaupasta saa tietämystä jos sitä...

Kampuspäiväkirja Pekingistä -

Kirjoitan Ai Wei Weista, koska hän on suorasanainen kiinalainen ajattelija. Täällä heitä ei livenä tapaa, ja netistäkin heidän löytämisensä on vaikeaa, kirjakaupoista puhumattakaan. Kokeellisena taiteilijana tunnettu Ai asui suurimman osan 80-luvusta New Yorkissa ja palasi sen jälkeen Pekingiin, missä oli perustamassa kokeellisten taiteilijoiden ns. East Villagea. 90-luvulla hän julkaisi sen ajan taiteilijoita kuvanneet teokset Black cover book, White cover book ja Grey cover...

Micra Cuts -

Värikäs vuosi on kohta takana, ja luet nyt Micra Cutsin viimeistä postausta. Matka on ollut kerrassaan verraton, ja uskomme että myös kaikki 31 kutsuvieraskirjoittajaamme viihtyivät. Blogi-Micra sinkoili puolen vuoden ajan pitkin poikin Suomea ja ehti olla monessa mukana. Keväällä Micra nähtiin Pinserin armottomassa lelutestissä ja myöhemmin Turistin alla hirviä väistelemässä . Elokuussa tyylitaituri MouMou kokosi Hopeanuolen kanssa yhteen sopivia mekkoja ja korkokenkiä –...

Matkailua Kaakkois-Aasiassa -

Wow.. it has been a long time since I wrote here last time. Heh, it's a bit funny that I wrote earlier that I will write here maybe twice a month. Huh, that just ain't gonna work. I realized that I am living here on Pulau Penang just an ordinary life. Nothing very special is going to happen that often. So I decided to forget this blog for a while. But now I am back. Why? Probably because I felt like writing something up again. I just felt like gathering my memories here a little bit. The thing...

Kenen YK? -

Tässä teille pitämäni puhe Nykissä täkäläistä aikaa sunnuntaiaamuna. Puheen osalta voin sanoa, että siitä valtaosa osa on runoiltu lennolla Helsigistä JFK:lle, loput lauantai-iltana ja Suomen valtion viralliset tahot eivät ole sitä nähneet ennen sen pitämistä, joten vastuu virheistä ja latteuksista on jotakuinkin yksin minun.

The Journey gets an interestning start My folks gave me a ride to Tampere airport and there I met my travel mates Juuso and Pekka. We also met a new guy, Ilari (also from Tampere University of Technology.. just like the rest of us). Together we flew to Helsinki-Vantaa airport.Then the most amazing thing happened. We were waiting for the Helsinki-Bangkok flight as some airport staff member came to us and asked: "Would you like to earn some money? All you have to do is just not to go to this...

Dili Days Decrease -

Today, it is exactly four years since the United Nations handed over the full government of Timor-Leste to the Timorese people. By a somewhat amazing coincidence, it was also today that I met with Lady Patricia Mirrlees, wife of the Nobel laureate who was in Helsinki to receive a Doctor Honoris Causa title from the Helsinki School of Economics yesterday. It turned out that Lady Mirrlees, a great friend of Timor, had been in Dili just a couple of weeks ago. We had a long discussion especially...

Dili Days Decrease -

Yesterday, I was walking and talking to my cell phone, when suddenly someone tapped my shoulder at the Central Railway Station square. I hardly believed my eyes to see two Timorese civil service directors, Mr Augusto Barreto and Mr Liborio Pereira here. Considering how much I have been thinking about Timor-Leste in the past week, I almost felt these people were miraculously summoned by my thoughts (in reality, they had been attending a training). While they told me some scary details, and even...

What is happening in Timor-Leste? I’ve tried to locate the best sources to follow the development of the situation. Here’s what I’ve found so far: http://timor-online.blogspot.com/ This blog is by far the best, updated almost every 10 minutes. Mostly in Portuguese; if you are not lusophone, this google translation gives a pretty decent idea still. UNOTIL The official website of the United Nations Office in Timor-Leste. Updated daily with situation reports. Lusa Timor-Leste The Portuguese...

Dili Days Decrease -

It is still hard to understand how little there were visible signs of upcoming misfortune in second-last week of April. Even if there were some tension in the air, I still wouldn’t ever have anticipated what was coming, as I have reported earlier. These photos are from 21 and 22 April, my last day at the UNDP office as well as the farewell party and the departure from the airport. At that time, it was still more or less business as usual. There are more related pictures here. Thanks again...

Dili Days Decrease -

Since I am no longer in Dili, I was going to end writing this blog and start a new one with a more accurate tile. However, the title words have got a whole new meaning now, so I continue with that for time being. Although I have made a couple of posts about recent violence in Dili, I didn’t comment the events frequently or extensively. It is very difficult to believe what I clearly see. Despite the reports, I remained confident that the situation would normalise soon until last Thursday when...

Pink Lady on the Loose! -

Well, it has finally happened. After more than 2 years of planning it, waiting for it, Pink Lady has finally moved to Asia. To Bangalore, India to be more precise. The Hubby will join in a few days. Since I will be working here, I wanted to buy some local-style, business-appropriate clothes. Frankly, I felt very underdressed here in my Western clothes. All those Indian beauties in their sarees

Dili Days Decrease -

I haven't been updating my blog properly for a while, so I haven't reported that it was not only Dili in turmoil, but we had some terrifying incidents here in Helsinki too. These things happened around 1st of May celebrations, which are a really big thing here, but I missed them this year because of an irritating deadline for a conference paper, set very untoughtfully to 1st of May (no cultural sensitivity there!). Robin has been covering both Dili and Helsinki incidents in his blog, so look...

So, the proverbial excrement has really hit the fan. Massive demonstrations around the Middle-East, a French editor was sacked for printing the cartoons in France , several Arab countries have withdrawn their diplomatic representation in Denmark, Palestinian Islamist groups have threatened Danes and Norwegians and they are declared valid targests as are any diplomats from these countries. Muslims in Finland have joined the boycott and condemn Denmark and Islamists in London have threatened...

I've had inconsistent week. I've got sad news, but also good news. And own life is better than average. Anyway, our loved grandad - pappa Pauli passed away on Tuesday evening, alone in the hospital room in Mikkeli. He was old, 87 yrs, and had various old people's diseases. Though it wasn't predictable, somehow it's relieving - thank you Pappa for all the things in life. Tuesday was also my father's 55th birthday - that made the day even more inconsistent. I got congratulated my dad in late...

100% PURA LANA -

After feeling a bit uninspired about my knitting, I'm feeling the love again and my head is bursting with ideas. But before jumping to new and exiting projects I decided to finish all seven pairs of socks I had planned to knit for Christmas this year. I've already finished three pairs and one pair is waiting to be blocked, so they are practically flying off my needles! The first pair is from the Knitted Socks East and West book . The yarn was chosen by my mom who then asked me to knit socks for...

Babbling about movies -

In 2006 Sacha Baron Cohen introduced the world to Borat, a reporter from Kazakhstan who shocked the USA when traveling around and looking for Pamela to make her his wife. The "semi-documentary" style movie gained Cohen an Oscar-nomination for Adapted Screenplay and many considered Borat the best comedy of the year. This year Cohen brings his third character, a gay Austrian fashionista named Brüno, to the big screen. This time however it is not as easy to make the movie as documentary in style...

Ah, ulkona sataa vettä kaatamalla, katselen New Yorkin valoja pisaroiden peittämän ikkunaruudun läpi, kirjoitan blogia ja juon kaakaota. Maija tulee pian käymään skumppapullon kanssa ja juoruamme eilisillan jutut ennen kuin lähdemme baanalle. On aika kiva olla. Näitä uutisia tulee nyt ihan hasardissa järjestyksessä, kun kuvia on röykkiö enkä ehdi päivittää sellaisella tahdilla kuin toivoisin.

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...

LA:hin on tullut tutustuttua vajaan viikon ajan ja enaa kaupunki ei tunnu aivan niin suunnattomalta. Tukikohtana on toiminut East LA, joka vaikuttaa olevan latinoenemmistoista aluetta. On jannaa miten valkoiset tuntuu linnoittautuneen jonnekin omille asuinalueilleen. Sellainen fiilis vahan tulee kavellessa MacArthur Parkilla tai kaydessa joissakin kaupoissa Broadwaylla downtownissa. Valilla huomaa olevansa ainoa valkoinen ja tuntuu etta […]

Olutblogi -

Viime aikoina erityisesti stout- ja porter-tyyppiset mallasjuomat ovat vietelleet makuhermojani. Ehkä parhaiten on jäänyt mieleen erittäin tasapainoinen, mutta kuitenkin särmikäs kokonaisuus, Nynäshamns ångbryggerin Smörpundet Porter, jota en usko saaneen muualta Suomesta kuin Pikkulinnusta, jossa se oli hanaoluena. Sanoisin, että tämä olut täyttää kaikki ne odotukset mitä osaan täydelliselle tuopilliselle asettaa. Oluen jälkimaku, joka tulee englantilaisista Fuggle-, East...

UPDATE (01 NOV 2006): A commentator reports that as of 1 October 2006, Merpati has resumed daily service between Denpasar and Dili again . Knowing Merpati's communications record, I still strongly reommend contacting Merpati diectly for latest information before travelling with them. I had a look on the site access statistics, and noticed to my surprise that a fair number of people had accessed my blog by searching something like 'dili denpasar flight schedule' , which is probably because of...

Tell them to let our people go To all: By now you’ve no doubt heard the news about Hillary’s people defining the about to take off Gaza flotilla as a “provacative act”! Could Obama be getting a bit nervous that he might have to take a stand? He may be nervous but not as much as the Israeli government that is throwing everything in the book at them to prevent them from even leaving the shores. Below is a partial dialogue from the State Dept. press conference where Matt Lee of the AP was...

The winds of change blowing through the Middle East are bringing enormous hopes for change.  In Egypt, where Hosni Mubarak helped to maintain the siege on Gaza, there is now a big public campaign to open to Rafah crossing. It has not succeeded yet, but the situation in Egypt remains very fluid and hopeful. And the pressure is growing on Israel also to abandon the illegal siege.  Viva Palestina is liaising constantly with our friends in the Middle East to assess what the next steps are to...

On jo aikakin blogata tästä, kun viikko sitten tultiin jo takaisin! Lähdimme tiistaina 24. maaliskuuta aamulla seitsemän aikoihin kohti Hangzhoun lentokenttää. Varaamamme auto ei "yllättäen" muistanut tulla paikalle, joten hyppäsimme taksiin, jolla ehdimme mainiosti ja peruimme samalla myös paluukyydin. Hangzhoun kentällä hommat sujui nopsasti ja kovin kauan ei tarvinnut koneen lähtöä odotella, tarkka lähtöaika taisi olla 8:55. Lensimme tällä kertaa Shenzeniin, sillä sinne...
