Helsinki Trip [Daily Photo #200]

Guess who hadn't been in Helsinki for months? =D Yesterday it was fixed! We went to Kallio to catch Pokemons to check out Loving Hut and visit some shops.

At the Central Railway Station.

Ympyrätalo in Hakaniemi.

What happens if we combine...

Fazer beet-carrot bread 
Bon Soya vegan “cold cut”
Wilmersburger cheddar-style vegan cheese?

This happens! ^u^
(All that food can be found in Alepa and some other grocery stores in Finland.)

My first Inktober! Arts #1-6

This October for the first time I decided to join Inktober! It's an annual drawing challenge where you draw something in ink daily (if possible) for a month and post it online. Armed with my manga pens and their India ink, I accepted this challenge!

So here's my first batch of Inktober doodles!

A Sea Creature

A Flat Explorer [Daily Photo #195]

What do you do when your ancient phone isn't Pokémon Go compatible? Use your husband's tablet! =D And to make it more cosy, carry the tablet with a help of a cute little raccoon.

Also, I forgot I took this pic yesterday and so didn't post it here. Oops! Someone put this handmade decoration on an I-aspire-to-become-a-Christmas-tree-this-year conifer bush.

Pecans & Sticky Buns [Daily Photo #194]

Yesterday I had a strong craving for sweet bakery, but instead of buying something from shop I decided to bake my own! After a bit of Googling I came across a recipe of sticky buns that looked way too delicious…

Feeding a Bookworm [Daily Photo #193]

If you have a bookworm in your house (or in yourself!), always make sure to feed them well, with good books and nutritious meals. They might pay you back by reading lovely passages aloud! Maybe...

IKEA Hydroponic Indoor Garden [Daily Photo #192]

Yesterday's shopping: a cultivation insert set, a special cultivation lamp, a light fixture. Oh no, she's gardening again! =D

I am entering the world of hydroponics.

Is it Christmas already? [Daily Photo #190]

We found something new in Prisma! Quorn juhlarulla (a meat-free version of the traditional Christmas meal, oven-baked ham). It's ovo-lacto vegetarian. So, of course, we had to try this new thing. =D It's delicious! Which isn't really surprising – I'm a big fan of Quorn.

(Dunno if it tastes like ham or not, it's been ~21 years, so my memory of meat is a bit fuzzy. =D)

Quorn is a British product, by the way. You can see what else they have here (UK) and here (Finland). I prefer their Finnish names, as they don't sound like meat.
