Tofu for Two -

Glögi is the Finnish equivalent of mulled wine, and before Christmas its readymade incarnations start to appear in the stores – some with alcohol, but most without. I find them usually way too sugary, and that’s why I always thought that I just don’t care for the drink that much. It wasn’t until this weekend […]


There is a story about someone's  PhD reseach about 7-13-year old Finnish children and studying English in today's Helsingin sanomat . The surveyed children don't consider the English they learn when gaming "proper English" , and don't see much relevance for lerning to write English (this is actually expressed rather vaguely in the article; it's possible that I misunderstood something). "Real English" is learned at school from books, the children think.  I don't remember if I had that kind...

Finland has quite a low ratio of inhabitants relative to land mass. Because of this there are vaste uninhabited areas where the landscape remains untouched. In addition, as Finland has very diverse features - ranging from the small islands on the south and southwestern coast, to the thousands of lakes in central Finland, and all the way to the mountains and tundra of Lappland - there are superb possibilities for nature photography. Here are some beautiful pictures of untouched Finnish nature...

Drinks like Lonkero and Kossuvissy have been helping Finns to get drunk for decades.Finnish Favorite Hobbies series is coming to its final episode.

Tämä on varmaan yksi kauneimpia tekstejä suomeksi. You Tubessa , Vesa-Matti Loirin tulkinta  myös You Tubessa. Täällä Katri-Helena esittää Nocturnen Elävässä arkistossa. Ruislinnun laulu korvissani, tähkäpäiden päällä täysi kuu; kesä-yön on onni omanani, kaskisavuun laaksot verhouu. En ma iloitse, en sure, huokaa; mutta metsän tummuus mulle tuokaa, puunto pilven, johon päivä hukkuu, siinto vaaran tuulisen, mi nukkuu, tuoksut vanamon ja varjot veen; niistä sydämeni...

Normal 0 21 false false false FI X-NONE X-NONE Ellen, thank you for asking for the “Pulla-recipe” (Cinnamon buns the Finnish way).  My Mom used to bake on Saturdays when I was a child, thus writing down the recipe on a Saturday is very appropriate. I have done this before, however this is my post number 601(!!), I just checked yesterday, it is acceptable to do it again (I think only once before). Confession: I am not a born baker. I had to learn to cook to feed and delight (in good and in...

Paul Dunay wrote a good post on brands that use Twitter. The list is not that long yet, but I recon it’s growing steadily. The list got me thinking again about how many Finnish companies use twitter. Again, there is no easy way to find them,  even though I used several tools in the process, [...]

Every major Finnish media published the cartoon of Prophet Muhammad depicted on today’s cover of Charlie Hebdo on their web pages. The cartoon was published along with news on the publication of the first issue since the Paris terrorist attack.  The only exception is Ilta-Sanomat that published only a photo of the demonstrators holding ”Je suis Charlie” signs.  ( Update, 23.40 pm: Also Ilta-Sanomat has now published the cover cartoon, see the screen shot and link below. ) Below is a...

Finland has great and varied history in the field of literature. A great deal of the major literary works are historical in nature and depict life in Finland in the yesteryears. A common theme in many of these books is to touch upon the metaphysical concept of what being a true Finn actually is. Possibly the greatest Finnish authors of all time are Aleksis Kivi, Väinö Linna and Mika Waltari. In the following paragraphs, I will present one book from each of these great men. Please remember...


Finnish copyfighter Herkko Hietanen sez, "Finnish copyright law is in its last stretch in Parliament. It places considerable limits on fair use and right to import works. Citizens are writing to the MPs who are planning to take action to remove some of the most Draconian parts of the law. Members of Parliament are reportedly receiving 600 e-mails a day about copyright issues. The Minister of Culture is calling the worried citizens who sent the e-mail terrorists! It is reported that this is the...

The source of happiness and peace is often found between trees and water, the two archetypal Finnish elements. However, sometimes trees on both sides and water underneath just don't do it, but the solution might be found where there is no trees at all.For a Finn, the Central Park of New York is really an oasis in the middle of busy city life and noise. It seems, however, to find the true peace

Sorry, I have not translations t o these idioms and pieces of colloquial speech , which make it so difficult for a foreigner to understand. I've collected them from various sources in the Internet. I present them as  problems - enigmas, it may be more enchanting in that way. You may try to google them. It's possible to context search. The sources may come in the beginning of results. You 'll anyway find contexts of usage. That's anyway in this way people speak. Some expressions may be out of...

Kiitos paljon kaikille Finnish Design Shop -arvontaan osallistuneille, teitä olikin iso joukko! Teidän ylivoimainen suosikkinne kolmesta huipusta palkintovaihtoehdosta olivat ihanan värikkäät Marimekon Ojakellukka -lakanat. Tyylikäs Artekin Riihitie -ruukku valkoisena tuli hyvänä kakkosena ja Steltonin 50-lukulaisesta Freja-kannusta tykättiin myös paljon. Riihitie-ruukun valitsi muuten

Kaunis aurinkoinen kevätaamu tänään, auton ikkuna on jo melkein jäätön tähtikirkkaan yön jälkeen. Pihalla ja sisällä kukkii, ja kevään myötä eläinlaumakin on kasvanut. Räjähdysmäisesti. Today is a lovely sunny spring morning, and the fozen dew after a bright night is almost gone. The garden has started to bloom as do the plants inside, and as is proper for spring, the animals have their offspring . Ensin oli tällainen First there was this Sitten näkyi tällaista Then it...

Rrrrrakastan Mikko Laakkosen suunnittelemaa Latva-naulakkoa. Nyt Laakkonen on kuitenkin suunnitellut lattianaulakolle seinälle kiinnitettävän version. Sitä saa näköjään tilattua Finnish design shopista 210 euron hintaan. Mulla olis tälle paikkakin tiedossa. Tänne sopisikin paremmin tuollainen seinämalli.

Kuten kuvasta näkyy, kirsikankukat kukkivat _juuri_nyt_ joten oli sitten pakko katkaista pitkähkö blogihiljaisuus. Kevät on muutenkin virkistänyt, ja niinpä kuljeskelin pitkin pihaa kuvailemassa. Kirsikankukat aukesivat tänä aamuna, nyt voisin viettää omaa Hanami-juhlaa, piknikkiä kirsikankukkien alla. Luumupuukin kukkii, toivottavasti se tuottaa hedelmiä myös tänä vuonna. Viime vuoden sato oli yhdeksän sinistä luumua. Tuomi kukkii ja TUOKSUU! Narsissit ovat nostaneet päänsä...

Uusi Ulla on ilmestynyt! Tai oikeastaan se ilmestyi jo pari päivää sitten, mutta näin lomalaisena blogaaminen on jäänyt... Mulla on myös ohje mukana, Ulpukka-huivi . Mä suunnittelin sen siskolleni, joka pyysi iltapukuhuivia. Sen piti olla geometrisesti kuvioitu, ilman mitään hässäkkää :-) Sitten Ullasta kysyivät, josko voisin sponsoroidusta langasta suunnitella huivin johonkin numeroon... ja kun kerran olin jo aloittanut, niin oli helppo luvata. Suunnittelu ja tekeminen vain...
