TABIBITO

In order to celebrate me and my boyfriend’s 3 year anniversary today, we decided to check out an asian restaurant called Tabibito in the Oslo city center. Definitely worth the visit. The restaurant had a nice and clean but warm atmosphere with burning candles and dimmed lights. Our coats were taken at the door (we’re students, we don’t eat at places where they usually do this…), and we were shown to a small table in the middle of the restaurant. Because of our occasion, we decided to try a five course dinner they had put together and a four glass wine menu to go with it. WOW is all we can say. The food was delicious.

For starters we had sichuan spring rolls and crispy wontons, followed by three different main courses: seafood wok with scampi, scallops, mussels and “seafood balls(?)”, chicken gong bao and fried pork coated with sesame seeds in a spicy sweet and sour sauce. Finally, for dessert, we got tapioca in a creamy coconut milk soup filled with fruit and coconut sorbet. Yes, it really was as exciting as it sounds. Everything tasted great, with tons of flavor! And as if the food wasn’t good enough, the service was excellent. Our waterglasses were never below half empty, we were checked on multiple times by our waitress and she gave us detailed descriptions of what we were served. Definitely a 5 star rating from us!
Have a wonderful week!

Long time, no see

I haven’t blogged since September 25th. In the time since then I haven’t been able to think of anything to blog about. I’ve contemplated shutting down my blog, change my angles, shut it down again, start blogging every day, blogging just once a week. I guess we all have those times when we just don’t want to blog, we don’t know what to blog about. I sometimes wish I had something exciting to blog about, like fashion or great recipes. Posts about all the places I’m travelling or about great causes I’m working for. That I took more pictures and shared my “photography”. That this would be the blog people went to for where to travel, where to go when out on the town in Oslo, or how to cook awesome food. However, I have no fashion sense, I rarely follow recipes while making food. I’m a student, so there is no time or money for travelling, I suck about going out on the town and when I do I never bring my camera so all that “photography” is never taken.

We’ve been seeing others lately…
I think to myself: what can I blog about? There is school, but being a student doesn’t have much more excitement than books, lectures and coffee addiction. I have my work (which I have neglected to tell anyone who reads my blog that I’ve gotten) at Lindex which is fun, but again limited as to what I can write about. The new clothing we get? Cool customers I meet? Maybe.. Then there is the living-with-your-boyfriend-for-the-first-time experience which would be fun to write about, but then I think that maybe the simple things that make us laugh are kind of weird and not completely understandable to others…

Then there is those deep thoughts. They’re easy to share, but also so easy to change. I notice myself writing that I want to do this and that, then the next moment I’m writing that I want to do that and this. I’m a month away from 20, I’m going to change my mind a lot in the next years. Maybe it’s ok though? Maybe my blog should simply be a place to air my thoughts, write it out and figure out if it makes sense or not. It’s not like I’m good at writing down my thoughts. I have a diary I’ve had since 2004, and I barely write 2-3 posts a year in that. But I like blogging. It might not be my deepest thoughts and secrets, it might not make any sense, I might write posts as rarely as snow falls in Texas and that are in no way exciting to anyone else but my boyfriend (who better be happy about the fact that I actually finally blogged). But it’s my blog, it makes me happy to write about things in my life and that is probably the only reason I always keep coming back to it.
I love you blog, thanks for being here no matter how long it takes for me to come back.
