Hawaii eats [Kalbi on Fire]

Since I will never manage to post our Hawaii vacation in a logical order, I just thought I will post just any post that I manage to finish. It's better than never post anything, right?

Food trucks are very popular on Oahu and one day we managed to stop right on our way to Haleiwa at a small town called Kahuku on the North Shore. I love Korean food so I was drawn directly to this colourful Korean food truck. There are several menus with different meat options, but I had what they are most famous for: the menu with Kalbi (grilled boneless short rib) with a scoop of rice and some macaroni salad for14$. Food is quite pricey on all over Hawaii and it felt a bit strange to spend $$ for a meal on the side of a road. Nevertheless the Kalbi tasted so good! I would recommend to add some Kimchi to the meal because the whole meal is pretty fatty. Still a mouth-watering place not to be missed out when discovering Oahu! Nice company (Hawaiian wild chicken) is for free too haha!

Kaweco picture contest

"What's in my bag?"
Kaweco hosted a photo contest on Instagram. You could participate if you add your Kaweco writing instrument and since I got a Kaweco Sport lately, I was intrigued to show what is in my bag. Since I had different ideas with different bags I just got a little creative and did different settings. Here are some of my favourite bags. My LV (love love this bag!), my Stella McCartney (too cute), my deuter backpacker bag (which I am using for city trips currently). Since my next trips will be all to the amazing city of London, I added a nice city guide that was created by artists. Also my new Traveler's Notebook makes any picture prettier.


L'Occitane Sweet Cherry Blossom Set

I've been really enjoying this travel/gift set by L'Occitane. Got this from my mother. It's so cute! I'll use the pouch to carry some make-up and stationery essentials with me. It's the perfect size, because it fits my pens easily! This set includes:

  • Mini Eau de Toilette Sakura 7.5ml
  • Cherry Blossom Showergel 75ml
  • Cherry Blossom Scented Soap 100g
  • Cherry Blossom Hand Cream 10ml
  • Bonne Mère bath tablet Peach 18g

Love all items. Especially the soap! L'Occitane soaps feel luxurious. Love travel size products since I don't need to buy anything extra for my carry-on-luggage trips.


[In my mother-in-law's garden]

Visited my mother-in-law this past Saturday and had time to take some pictures in her wonderfully maintained little garden. There was so much to see. Every corner was utilized to its fullest. It felt like the last weekend of late summer in 2016. We had a really yummy barbecue and chatted happily along. I even did some videos, that I would like to make into a little film. By the way pansy is one of my favourite flowers.
