Hollandse Nieuwe Haring World Record

Woohoo! So, yes… We are now a record holder of the Hollandse Nieuwe Haring World Record! It is where 1500 people ate “Haring” raw fish at the same time.  This event was held last 19th of June 2015.

Haring Raw Fish with onions! Typical dutch food.

We are happy to be a part of it and we are proud to say that me and my husband holds a title of a world record! Relationship goal met!

This is the video of the countdown and of course the eating time!  :)  

Im Back!

The reason why I havent posted much the past month is that because… We bought a house :)

I, we are officially owners of a house that is 4 mins away from the beach, a great view of the dunes and also a nice view of the other nearby beach houses.

Well, our house is not that big but it is enough for the 2 of us to have a good start as a married couple. Good vibes on this house, we started it right by making it ourselves, from the floors to the kitchen. Im amazed how handy I have become. I knew how to build some cabinets and make good use of the hammer and nails with screws.

I will post next time the results. I cant wait to finish everything at this moment and just finally chill and live a normal life again. I never knew how tiring is it to move! haha…

Berlin, Germany: Boat Tour

This is the first time for us to visit Berlin during winter.

On our 2nd day in Berlin, me and my whole gang went boating. Well we were lucky that there is still like a boat tour during winter time. We kinda expected that we will not be able to follow our agenda with doing a boat ride because it is unusual to do a boating tour during winter time.

The boat tour is an hour roaming around Berlin. I must say that the tour almost covers most of the tourists spots of Berlin. You can go above the boat and stay there to get the 360 view. In the boat they serve food and drinks, which is nice after the long stay at the top of the boat. The only thing that I find not really nice was that the tour during that time was only spoken in German and we dont speak german. It would be lovely if they also allow english version of the tour even in winter.

Well It was still nice to visit and do a boat ride during winter. We experienced lots of snow this time!

The Fault In Our Stars

I love the book and I love the movie.  That’s the first thing I said after I read and watched the movie.

The book:

I’ve been searching for the English version of the book for the past months. Most of the time when I go to a bookshop, they only offer a copy of this book in Dutch language. I’m still one of those people who actually prefer real books than e-readers. I was super happy to have finally found the book.  I actually did not know what to expect about this book. I haven’t read anything about it but I was curious enough to give it a try since almost everybody is going gaga about it.

Honestly, I can’t put the book down. It took me several days to actually finish the story. I also brought my copy at work and find time to read it when im not that busy.  I love the story, it’s not the ordinary ones as I may say. It’s light on some parts and heavy most of the time. Tears come flowing, I am moved.

The movie:

When I knew that there would be a movie of The Fault In Our Stars, I said to myself that I have to go watch it. I have to watch it as soon as the movie arrives here in the Netherlands. I’m kinda proud that they shot a part of the film in Amsterdam in which where I used to go everyday.

After watching the movie, it made me think about the one I read.  They actually filled my imagination. I already expected that they will look the same. They gave justice to the book and I’m happy about it. I can’t stop sobbing at the cinema. I like the way on how they portray the characters in the book. Free flowing and it seems like it’s natural which I kinda like and not thinking that they are actors in a movie.

In real life, I kinda know how it is like to deal with people with cancer. I have handled patients with cancer and know people who are fighting and still fighting cancer. I hate how cancer is being a bitch to people, how it actually change people’s lives. I salute and respect the ones who are dealing with it. They are strong,  they are really strong people.
