Did she say that about me?… found via FB

Did she say that about me?... found via FB

Tatyana Droubich

I am an amicable person. I hate confrontation and ambiguous contexts. For me, it is simpler to tell things as they are all at once. It seems to me that femmes fatales do not act this way. Being sly, playing, plotting – no thanks. There’s no bravado here. I rather confess […]

Norway calling

Norway calling

First, grieving, anger, and fear came in. Then, questions. A lot of them.

How many shooters were there in total? Killing over 50 people ALONE is an action movie superman’s task, and the guy was not even a seal/commando.

Why the killer was allowed so much time to act? The media are full of […]

Mmm… Sundom’s smoked baltic herring, näm!

Seasoned with a handful of good humor.

Funny idea to put those two side by side 😀 Well done Vaasan Ikkuna!

Raising children in the 21st century not a piece of cake

Raising children in the 21st century not a piece of cake

Have been thinking about it for awhile…

When you leave the hospital with your newborn they tell you, “enjoy your baby”, you simply do not imagine you won’t be given an opportunity to enjoy, at least the first year.

The question is not about the baby herself. Basic care is as simple as ABC’s […]

Ai kamalaa, hah-hah, Marja Tyrni sanoi kun uuden sähkölaskun näki

Ai kamalaa, hah-hah, Marja Tyrni sanoi kun uuden sähkölaskun näki

Marja Tyrni, or Marja Seabuckthorn, or Seabuckthorn Berry since “marja” is “berry” in English.

This is a, hm, woman in her 40s or 50s from Pallivaha residential area of Turku (which really exists, although “pallivaha” means “ball wax”, where balls are of course those of […]

Straight Edge Society™, Multicultural Interactive Real Approach™, YEAH!

Straight Edge Society™, Multicultural Interactive Real Approach™, YEAH!

You know, sometimes words said or written have that much difference from their original meanings… I face those differences more often day by day now. What you would think if you see something like “Multicultural Interactive Real Approach”? Think for a minute…

Or see the meaning of MIRAhouse in original:

Mira International Culture Society […]

While Burana is sorta cure-all solution for adult population in Finland, the medicine for all babies’ sores is supposed to be RELA-tipat or Reladrops…

Whenever you complain to local pediatricians on your baby crying a lot or apparently having stomach aches the answer is you should give’er reladrops. Any time, any place, and with […]

Victoria getting married

Victoria getting married

Newsmaking is easy when you’re royal. Just pick up a commoner (preferably, a sportsman or a bodyguard), kiss his hand during an interview on TV, and finally ask your father to bring you to the altar.

The public will be pissing their heads off 😀 And from now on, they have a permanent subject […]

Ilkka Kanerva is the Tiger Woods of Finland 😀

Those guys are really funny. They head for the stars in, say, politics or sports, carrying a backpack full of naughty little demons that can pull them all the way back down any moment. Is it really worth the risk if the stakes are that […]

A remarkable weekend

A remarkable weekend

While the whole Suomi was taking the steam in hot saunas and sipping beer with grilled sausage on a plate beside, the country eventually got a new Prime Minister. Wlecome Mari Kiviniemi. The top level of Finland is more and more an example of girl power: female President, female Prime Minister, female opposition leader […]

“A nice present to a person who has already got everything”

"A nice present to a person who has already got everything"

That is the description the author of a sell ad has provided for his lot.

They killed Metro

They killed Metro

The blast news from Moscow were on every TV channel and many Internet blogs yesterday and today. People are astonished, shocked. Pictures on Twitter… not every viewer can stand it.

38 lives wasted.

But what hurts me personally even more is the change for the worse that such events bring forward. When I was […]

Vauvauinti – Baby Sim – Baby Swim

Vauvauinti - Baby Sim - Baby Swim

Went to try it for the first time today at Tropiclandia, all three of us including of course baby Alisa.

Sooo much fun! although we had to wake up at 6 a.m. which is torture taking into account Saturday 😀 But as soon as we got there our moods were up & high. About […]

Let’s pick up some more delightful news

Let's pick up some more delightful news

STT-HS reported last week that the population of Finland grew noticeably last year.

Among the reasons for that, immigration and the babyboom of 2009 autumn and winter. The growth of population was approx. 25 000 people. By the beginning of 2010, a bit over 5 351 000 lived in Finland, the number of females […]

Property of the State?

Property of the State?

God knows I’ve tried to keep my eyes wide shut on the Rantala case… Too many people involved, too many attitudes, too many lies spread and too few facts available.

But I’m a mom myself and I cannot help thinking what if it were me and my child.

The local media have been keeping […]

Celebs go Finland

Celebs go Finland

“Soccer Barbie” David Beckham is in Turku today, the headlines reported.

He has not come here for Koskenkorva or reindeer sausage, but is due to be operated in Mehiläinen clinic (wow. wow. i have insurance in that clinic!) for Achilles/ heel cord or whatever his problem is.

I guess, we’ll see Sakari Orava (Beck’s […]

Miss Suomi 2010

… began with a scandal: one of the contenders was reported to have committed theft in a shop times ago. She immediately withdrew commenting smth like “do not follow my example” and was replaced with another, remarkably prettier, one. How nice of her 😀

Another 1/10 finalist is of Russian origin; very nice-looking but the […]

…Of course marry one and have her bear a daughter 🙂

It was 13.23 on November 23rd that Max and me got a sweet little girl, Alisa (aka Chiwawa, you will see further why 😀 ), 2500g/44cm, Apgar score 9/10.

She took after her father in looks and after me in temper. Loves night […]
