Pokémon TCG: Legendary Dragons of Unova Collection

Yesterday I had some stuff to do at Luleå and so I went there with Hasakitsuki. After I was done with the main reason I traveled there we went to the shopping center Smedjan. We checked the Game store and well, I was subject to some geeky cravings of mine namely Pokémon trading cards. I actually stopped collecting the Pokémon cards after the 4th generation (main reason: lack of space and cash) but the interest is still there, along with the childhood nostalgy and this time I just couldn't pass it up...

.. and that's how this thing ended up coming with me back home:

Pokémon TCG: Legendary Dragons of Unova Collection

So this box includes 3 figures (Kyurem, Reshiram and Zekrom) along with 3 special foil promo cards (Kyurem, Reshiram and Zekrom again) as well as 4 Black & White Series booster packs.

Foil promo cards
Flash photo just to show that yeah, it's holofoil indeed :'D
Unova dragon trio Figurines attached to their respective platforms
I must say that the promo cards and figurines are really cool! I love dem dragons.
I opened the booster packs and it's quite funny because I got Porygon-Z in a booster with art of Porygon-Z on it. :'D I also got White Kyurem in a booster with Black Kyurem haha.

The rare () cards I got!

But that's about it, I'm geeking out of here!

Teriyaki chicken with Soba noodles


Today I had teriyaki for the first time; chicken teriyaki with soba noodles. I actually cheated a bit because I had bought one of these ready bases to which you only need to add meat and rice/noodles..

(sorry about the crummy presentation lol)
I must say it was pretty good although I've tasted better stuff.. some thai foods, for example.
One thing was a bit funny though; while I was preparing the food I took a small spoon and tasted the sauce pretty directly after I started heating it and my first reaction to the taste was that it tasted like beer or something. xD I don't know what's wrong with my tastes but I didn't feel this same taste later when the food was done, hah.

That's it for today, see ya!

Walpurgis celebration

 Hello hello!

On 30th April and 1st May we Finns and Swedes celebrate Walpurgis (Vappu in Finnish, Valborg in Swedish). I follow the Finnish traditions so a few days before the celebration I went to mom's place with Hasakitsuki and Jäätynyt Enkeli. We made donuts and sima, a special drink that we have in Finland for Walpurgis that is made out of two different kinds of sugar and lemons, mostly. It's fucking awesome. <3 Homemade one is the best; the ready-made ones you can buy in stores barely taste anything like the real deal, don't be fooled.

Yesterday on 30th April our trio dressed up in cosplay; in Finland Walpurgis is a sort of carneval event and people dress up funnily perfect excuse to cosplay in town! 
When we went to the shore area we just happened to be there just in time for the Swedish May bonfire! Yep, Swedes light a huge bonfire to celebrate Walpurgis.

May Bonfire
It's a pretty nice but short event. Walpurgis is cool because it's okay to be goofy and the stuff you get to eat is awesome, especially the sima drink. I would drink it all year round if I could, that's how much I like it haha. Oh, you wonder what sima tastes like? Dude, I'm sorry but..

Sima tastes sima.

With that said I'm out of here for today. Ciao ciao!
