Unfortunately I got a cold again. Probably due to my underestimate to the weather, my silly belief that if I wore those newly-purchased stockings then I wouldn't feel so cold wearing the skirt, and the crazy idea that I wanted to test if I could just put the dough by the open window instead of putting in the fridge to let it rise overnight. -__-
Anyway I went to two parties on Friday and Saturday, one held by the exchange students of Hanken (Swedish Business School) and the other at Michiko's Togolese friend Kpadja's place. Thanks to them, had the chance to taste some genuine Romanian mushroom stew, Polish cabbage rolls, French-style Lasagne, tapioca dessert, French and Australian red wine, ginger beer which is without alcohol, african music and dance, witness a completely drunk french guy Stephan, whom was said to be very shy normally, attempting to walk cross the dining table, playing some stupid games called "29"
(speaking the number from one by turns, but when it's revolved with seven had to say something else instead...) and "shit, shout, lapin"
(some word sounds like rabbit in french) and met an amazing french girl Sophie who came to study in Finland for the chance to do research of forestry in China and has been to Mongolia (where she didn't recommend for backpacker, as the transportation connection is awful), Xinjiang and Tibet (I could see how stunning and beautiful the scenery there thru her eyes)...
Today I was planning to go cross-country skiing with some Italian girls, but the weather was too bad with the heavy snow I haven't seen for weeks. And actually I was kind of sick, when I woke up by Stacy's phone call asking me to try some red-bean-rice-cake and green-bean-soup, it's already 3pm... But it's a nice day (except the indecisive annoying guy on MSN kept bugging me to teach him how to make the banana bread but at last said next time!) Thanks to the snow, finally I could rest at home all day with my books, kind of recuperation after those parties. (I am truly an out-and-out introvert
