I have been nominated for my first award by thesparklingsuitcase! Thank you so much! She has a super nice lifestyle blog, so make sure to check her out! I am so sorry for the late response by the way.. (-∧-;)

Here are the rules for accepting this award:

1. Share the link of the blogger who have shown love to you by nominated you.

2. List the rules.

3. Answer the 3 questions.

4. In the spirit of sharing love with our blogging family, nominate 15 bloggers for this award.

5. Ask them 3 new questions.

My nominees are:


My answers to the three questions: 

1. Which moment would you like to relive if you can travel back in time?

I would love to go back to when I lived in Matsumoto. It became my second home and miss it a lot. So I would love to relive one day of doing groceries at the supermarket, taking the bike and ride that oh-so-dangerous road up the hill to school just one last time. Oh! And not to forget the miso-ramen and korokke from the school canteen, yes please!

2. What you had always been scolded for?

Spending too much time on the computer during summer and school days. When I was in middle school anime and games were my life, which my mom was not too happy about since my grades dropped to an all time low. In the end I only got to watch anime on the weekends (though sometimes I would go online to watch an episode whenever she was out for groceries.) ‘Whoops, my hand slipped!’ *clicks play*

3. Describe your thoughts about the new generation youth.

I am very envious of the new generation. They get to grow up with the internet, smartphones and the new Nintendo switch. With the use of internet kids can learn things way quicker than I ever could. I remember buying those Christopher Hart books on how to draw manga which were pretty bad, but there were no other options. They can start learning languages at an early age, watch make-up tutorials (most 12 year old are better at doing make-up than I am), etc. Sadly, I also think that they might become vain or don’t see the worth and beauty in certain things anymore. I see a lot of kids walking around with smartphones these days, and those hover boards that don’t hover (which are EXPENSIVE! Holy wow). Sometimes I wonder whether they actually appreciate it at all. (I am still happy to be a 90’s kid after all, growing up with VHR tapes, the beginning of Pokemon, still remembering floppy disks and seeing the world evolve into this new time and era full of technology. A little bit of both worlds!)

My questions for the new nominees:

  1. If you could travel anywhere you wanted, where would you go and why?
  2. What does a perfect day look like to you?
  3. If you were to win the lottery, what would you do?

Congratulations to all the nominees! And again, thank you for nominating me for this award! I had a lot of fun answering the questions! 


Dinner in Maastricht – Korean restaurant Dadawan review

There are so many amazing restaurants in Maastricht that I have yet to discover! But one I can cross off my list now is Dadawan, A Korean style restaurant. Since we had to celebrate my friend going to Korea for some months and my other for getting a job in Japan (proud of you guys!), we went to Dadawan!

An afternoon in Valkenburg – Lasergaming in the caves and delicious dinner

Last Friday it was my friend’s birthday, and that asks for a party! So all of us went lasergaming (which is already so much fun) in the caves in Valkenburg! (Even better YAY)

I really love Limburg for its not-Dutch-looking scenery and geography. Especially the area around Valkenburg is beautiful! There are caves, hills and lots of greenery, the perfect place for some hiking! But instead of hiking, I will tell you about my experience lasergaming in the caves and about a really nice restaurant where we had dinner.

Irrational fears

I am pretty sure everyone has some weird quirks that we kind of neglect and never really talk about. I realized that I had many strange fears and customs that I wouldn’t have bothered thinking twice about if not for Tumblr. It was only when I read deep-dark-fears that I noticed there were other people who have the same fears I had, and it kept me thinking! So here’s a list of some of my strange fears:

Update: What I have been up to (I)

I have been pretty busy with stressing about my school project and busy with my work at my internship. So I wanted to take this opportunity to write about my fun two-day trip with my internship mentor! We went to all kinds of places that I had never been before. Some of the places looked straight out of a fairy tale!

I got an eyebrow piercing! (+first week healing diary)

Two weeks ago I finally decided to get something I had been dreaming about for years: a piercing! At first I wanted to wait until the summer holiday started, but since I didn’t had to leave the house the week after, I saw it as the perfect opportunity to go get a piercing!
