During New Years Emma and I pretty much stayed home because Emma had this terrible flu. Shortly after New Years our good friend Svante came to Thailand to stay with us for a couple of months. Since we were new in Bangkok it was nice to have a guy friend with us to clubs and such. Before Svante arrived all we did was visit shopping malls and settling in our new condo σ(^_^;) In other words, our adventures started from here on!
Protests were going on around Bangkok at this time so friends and family were worried about us. We never got involved in any violent protests of course because we never visited the serious protest areas. As you can see in the Vine above, there was a stage in the middle of a road where people made speeches and had live performances. This was a non-violent protest spot, located in a big shopping area. The protests did not affect our daily lives much except for the traffic. In Bangkok traffic is always awful but during the protests it was worse because of the blockades. Well, enough about the protests for now! It had already been over a month since Emma and I arrived so it was time to enroll school (^o^)/
Emma had researched Walen School of Thai before we moved. Both of us have not attended school for a while so their easy-going atmosphere and learning technique interested us. We chose the school and paid ~25,000 baht for 180 lessons. I got my Education Visa from Walen too d(^_^o) Lucky Emma is a Thai citizen so she does not have to bother with visiting the Immigration Office every 90 days..
Now on to the fun stuff; Parties! It was in the end of January when we visited our first bus bar. They are the perfect preparty hang out ( ^ ^ )/■ You sit outdoors, listening to music and enjoy buckets of alcohol from the bus bar.
Since I have introduced a great preparty hang out, now let me introduce you to THE party. On the 31st of January, Sensation White Wicked Wonderland happened! Three days before Sensation White we decided to search for tickets to the event. Luckily we found a person who wanted to sell her early bird tickets so we got the tickets cheaper than expected. Our next task was to find a white outfit! Damn, easier said than done.. Took me two days to raid the shopping mall for an outfit ＿|￣|○ Anyways, we suited up and headed to the event.
I have never seen so many people dressed in white.. When we entered the venue the staff handed out Sensation White LED bracelets to all the guests. We tried to turn our bracelets on but they would not light up. What the hell, we thought and decided to try out the bar instead. We bought coupons and got ourselves a six pack of Sensation White Heineken cans. And finally, the show started ★
I had an awesome night! Currently one of the best events I have ever been to. As you can see in one of the video clips, all the LED bracelets light up at the same time and it was so cool (((o(*ﾟ▽ﾟ*)o))) The Sensation White crew promised to come back to Thailand in 2015 and I do hope they will. It is already January 2015, but a Sensation event has not been confirmed ( ･᷄ ︵･᷅ ) Anyway, I highly recommend Sensation for you guys who loves a big party. Aaaaand this sums up my 2014 - January recap. I will try my best to blog more frequently from now on and post about the stuff some of you have requested. See you ♡
Errmahgerd. I have been waiting for another big event and finally, here it is; ARCADIA! I have not been this excited since Sensation White Wicked Wonderland. The best thing about this event is that it is held one day before my birthday so I will be celebrating my birthday when the clock strikes midnight ★ Anyone going to Arcadia?
I turned 21 ! Well, ten days ago actually. Since Emma and I will be moving to Thailand for an unknown time we decided to combine our farewell party with my birthday celebration on the 29th of November. We started the night off at one of our favorite restaurants; Sakura ♥

Thanks again everyone for coming to celebrate my birthday and say farewell before or long journey. I had a nice night, even thought I was sick (つд-｡) Fortunately, I have almost fully recovered before our move. I guess this is it then . . . My next post will be from Bangkok, Thailand. FUCK YEAH ★
The 25th - 27th of November Kimii and I held our last meetup for a very long time. I will soon be studying in Thailand for at least half a year so therefore we will not be able to host a Gals and Shit event for a while. Anyway, we wanted to do something bigger than usual for this meetup ☆ Our first meetup, the Boats and Gals 2.0, was real fun so we decided to go on a cruise again. But this time we changed things up by going on a longer cruise and also tour around in Tallinn before heading back ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ

And thank you all for making it to another memorable meetup ♡ Look forward to our future meetups, because there will be more to come ! Kimii and I are already starting to plan for the next Gals and Shit event d(^▽^) Take care~!
Whoa~ a whole month has passed without me blogging. So, what has happened since last time I updated? Halloween Σ(o>艸<) This holiday is well celebrated by me and my friends ! Since 2011 we have been attending Fried Rice´s annual Halloween party and it has become a tradition. In 2011 there were five of us girls that dressed up in the theme of "Burlesque" and last year I went as a pirate. This year I decided to go as The Baddest Schoolgirl (。-`ω´-) Inspiration from CL´s The Baddest Female.
Blood was our theme this year
Elise as a bloody Queen of Hearts ♥

We only managed to take a few photos before heading out to Fried Rice´s Halloween party since we were kind of busy getting ready and prepartying. Especially Emma, Lin and I were quite stressed because earlier on the same night we attended VIXX´s Global Showcase tour. Not complaining thought, because I had a blast that night ☆
Gosh, how I miss blogging. If I had anything fun or interesting to blog about I would have already done it by now, but it has been too long since last time so I thought "fuck it, I will blog anyways". Now the question is what I am supposed to blog about . . . I guess this will be an update post then ! Of what I have been doing since summer ヾ(＾∇＾) Well, right after I returned from the Gals and Shit meetup in Finland I worked quite intense with only a few days off now and then. Whenever I was off I tried to plan something fun to do and it often ended with me meeting up friends to eat, hang out and/or party ☆ There was one night when the girls and I planned to have a traditional girls night out, all dressed up with no guys with us. We started at a Thai restaurant, called Thai Boat because the restaurant is on an actual boat. I had never been there before and there were very good rumors about the place so I was really excited to try it out.
Here is my Vine of the food we ordered to share
I loved it ♥ The restaurant was so cozy and the food was amazing. I wished I had brought my camera with me, but I was too lazy since we were going out to a club later on. Anyway, we continued our night at a club as mentioned but when we arrived to the club we got surprised by the guys that also decided to come to the same place. There goes our "girls night out"（_ _;）I do not complain thought, because we had fun after all ! Next up is when I went to my friends Circus-themed birthday party. She is an old classmate and I had not seen her for such a long time so it was really fun to attend the party, along with other classmates.
Julia dressed as the Lion King haha . . .
Only one week after the birthday party some of us from our old class met up for a classic home-party ★ Some of us had not seen each other since graduation so it was really fun to catch up with everyone. So many memories from our time togheter in school and previous parties ♡
Me, doing a weird face . . .
Now on to something completely different ! Last weekend I attended Eat Your Kimchi´s fanmeeting here in Stockholm. For those who do not now about EYK - They are a Canadian couple, living in Korea while working as "Youtubers". They are popular for their weekly videos, such as "Kpop Music Monday" where they review various Kpop music videos.
I have been subscribing their account for such a long time now and to get to see them for real was really weird, but in a good way. They are great people so it was very entertaining. Hope they enjoy their stay in Sweden (^○^) Phew~ I think that was all for my update post ! Ending with a remix of Seungri´s song. Until next time then ♪
So yeah, another Gals and Shit meetup took place and this time in glorious Finland ! The official date for the meetup was 1st of August, but Kimii and I arrived the day before. Our plan was to take it easy the first day and save our strenght for the actual meetup. That was the plan. Instead we ended up at Sini´s place prepartying, for the meetup ?! I do not complain thought because I had an awesome night ☆

The day after, the official meetup day, we all met up at Viivi´s place to hang out and party~! I was too lazy to bring my camera with me that day so the only pictures I got is of my own look taken with mobile camera for Twitter and Instagram before we headed out. Anyway, had lots of fun at the party and got to know new people ヽ(^^)(^^)ノ
Vine video taken by Alex from the first night of Gals and Shit
Now on to the second day of the meetup ! We met up quite late on the evening and took a boat to an island named Suomenlinna where we had a picnic ( ^o^) Everyone brought something with them and we all shared like a cute little family. We stayed on the island until midnight I think and then took the boat back to town. Some of us wanted to continue the night so a gay club was the next destination ! My last destination was, of course, McDonald´s but I heard that some of the others ended up swimming in the beach when the sun had already gone up. Crazy people !!

And now on to the third day. Adorable Oona booked tables for us at a fancy club for this night ★ Once again, I had lots of fun. How can you not have a good time with these people?
Tsuomasu being a host with the bottle, all ready !
Oona, Kimii and Sascha
Good-looking people !!
There was a fourth and last day of the meetup where people went to a restaurant for dinner, but I was not feeling well so I skipped it（；へ：）Too bad because I did not get to say bye to everyone properly since we traveled home the day after. I want to thank everyone for attending and making it to an awesome meetup and memory（´ω｀♡%）And of course thank all the Finnish hosts ☭
I have blogged about the days during the meetup already so this will just be a picture bomb post with a nice video in the end ♥ These picture are taken by Hampus and you can follow his photography blog for more detailed posts about his pictures, or follow him on Twitter ! The video in the end is filmed and edited by Rikku. Such talented people, these two ☆
The last official day of the meetup. Me and Kimii started the day by meeting up with the Norwgian people; Ingvild, Xiaoting and Erlend. Since the girls were going home on sunday we had our last supper(?) togheter at a Chinese/Vietnamese restaurant called Lucky Garden. Some dishes were quite pricy but luckiy me and Erlend found a four small dishes course for only 145SEK if I remember correctly (⌒▽⌒) We even got dessert included, wohoo !
Xiaoting with her bigass bowl of rice, asian power !
Anyway, after eating and talking it was time to send the girls off with the Arlanda Express train to the airport. So sad that they could not stay one day longer (´∩｀。) After leaving the girls it was Erlends turn to be left off. At the boys hotel room ! When our mission was completed me and Kimii went back to Andrés place, which we stayed at during the meetup, to get ready for another night of clubbing ★ At 9PM we got back to the boys hotel room to pre party.
Amanda and Daniel~
I got a dare. To change pants with the person next to me, lol !
Had a lot of fun and when the alcohol was finished it was time to go to Fried Rice ! Last year around this time me and Kimii participated as models for the InspirAsian fashion show at Fried Rice, but since we had the meetup going on we decided to just go and party this year. No regrets~! Had an awesome time with those who joined us to the club ( o^∇^)/ On our way home after partying I walked like an old obaachan because my feets were so dead after wearing heels the whole weekend, buhu . . .
The only party people left after a whole weekend of partying !
I want to thank everyone once again that made this meetup such a memorable one. Stay tuned for our next meetup ♥
So this is the day when shit was going down ★ Since some people drank and stayed up a bit too long than planned the day before I am glad me and Kimii decided to let everyone do whatever they wanted during the day ! It was not until after 6PM that I met up people at the Central station and togheter went to the karaoke place. Some of us had already been pre drinking so there were no awkward silence in the karaoke room, no no~ I think Tuomas held the microphone throughout the entire stay there ( ^o^) ♪

After 10PM we drank up our drinks, sang our last song and then moved on to the next location; Club ACE ! Overall I had an awesome night with everyone ! Shit happened and it sure went down that night ★

Third part will be posted SOON !
The day that I have been longing for finally arrived ! Since me and Kimii got a positive feedback from our Boats and Gals 2.0 cruise we decided to create an event togheter once again. This time we named our event Gals and Shit ★ Why ? Because there were going to be gal people and shit happening, that is why ! Friday was the day people arrived from Finland, Norway, the Netherlands and different places in Sweden to Stockholm. We met up at the Central station at 5PM along with our friend and talented photographer; Hampus ヾ(´▽｀) The sun was already starting to set so we decided quickly to take a walk to Kungsträdgården, a park in the city which is famous for its cherry blossoms during the spring. Unfortunately the spring has not yet reached Stockholm to the extent for the cherry trees to bloom. However we did take some group photos before we started to freeze our asses off in the cold and windy weather ! Thereafter we slowly made our way back to the Central station and while we were indoors me and Kimii decided to hand over the gifts we bought for those who had their birthday recently ♡ We picked out the presents with care and Stockholm/Sweden theme haha . . . Anyway, around 7PM the girls and boys split up. Us girls and Hampus went to MAX for a classy(lol) dinner while the boys went back to the hotel to pre drink or whatever, have a guys night or something. HAH GAAAY~
I think they did this on that same night . . .
Meanwhile, us girls went to a pub called Biljardpalatset(Pool palace) to play pool and meet up with some of mine and Kimiis friends. After a while the boys joined us again and it was super fun ( ＾▽＾) The night lasted longer than planned and some of us got a bit too drunk I think, lol !
Rikkus pic of us girls~
As you can see in the picture both me and Kimii have dyed our hair lilac/silver ! But the color has faded already after a week (┳◇┳) Here is some photos from Lina later on when we met her up at the pub ▼
More photos and footage of the first day will be posted later on~! Oh right, we borrowed Hampus polaroid camera too ☆
It was quite a while ago that mine and Kimii's event, Boats and Gals 2.0 cruise, took place and I am sorry for the super late post about it (-人-;) My friend took the photos but I have constantly forgotten to borrow them. Well, here goes ! The idea started off at the Oslo summer meetup when people showed interest for visiting Stockholm for a meetup. Since I live in Stockholm I took the liberty of starting up an event togheter with my partner in crime, aka Kimii. When the day came, 10th of October, both old and new friends arrived to Stockholms harbour for a 23 hours cruise. At 7pm we boarded the cruise and partied throughout the trip with only 3-5 hours of sleep ! Hardcoooore (゜ロ゜)

When the real party started there where no time for photos ☆ I think people went to sleep at latest around 6-7am, lol. But no slacking on the Boats and Gals 2.0 cruise !! We started the after party at 3pm when the tax free opened and continued the party until we got off the boat (≧▽≦)
Snatched a picture from Kimii where you can see my whole outfit
And then the after party started
(Almost) Everyone gathered the day after, all worn out lol
So this is the day when I attended BIG BANGs concert in London. I started the day awfully hungover from the mix of beer and Smirnoff Ice the night before (_ _|||) This is why I prefer to just drink spirits, no mix of beer, wine or whatever(except energy drinks of course). Anyway, I went down to the pool in our hotel with Kimii and our friend Svante to take a swim. I felt a bit better after that but I was not fully recovered until we went to eat at a grill restaurant. Ouff~ We were so stuffed after the huge meal and extra dishes ! Guess it was a good thing since we had to go without food for the next 6-7 hours (￣ロ￣;) At 4pm Jenny and I started to queue because of our early entry access. People were already starting to queue way ahead of us so we came up with a strategy on how to get pass everyone so we could be near the stage, lol. Aaaaand our first strategy was to leave our jackets at the hotel so that we would not need to stand in the queue for the wardrobe. That strategy did not work that well, so we used another one ! Fangirls are pretty dumb, running around the stage wherever the singers go, so Jenny and I took this as an opportunity to get a spot by the fence to the stage whenever the crazy fangirls left theirs. The stage was huge and shaped as a T, but this is where we finally ended up ▼
BIG BANG is the second group I discovered within the Kpop genre for over 4-5 years ago and I have been following them since then. The fact that I finally saw them live meant so much to me. When the concert started and they dropped the drape I actually got so overwhelmed that I cried for a second (´；ω；`) My overwhelmness went by pretty fast and I cheered, laughed and sang throughout the concert with happiness ♪
Fuck it, I will use unedited photos anyways. Since my last post was about a birthday celebration I might as well post another one about birthdays. This goes way back to October when Kimii and Emma had their birthdays only 4 days between one another. So Kimii was the first one to celebrate and we did the traditional way; eat !! We ate as much as we could at the asian buffet restaurant "Pong" since the price was too damn high even there lol . . . After we had stuffed as much food as possible we went to the cinemas to choose a movie to watch. In the end we chose the movie "Ted" (ó㉨ò)
My first plate, out of... 5 I think? I should become a food fighter.
Daniel and Marcus
HAH . . . GAAAAAAY~
And then 4 days later is was Emmas birthday ★ Nothing special was planned since we were going to celebrate her during the weekend, but as usual we went out for dinner. This time at the japanese restaurant "Wagamama" ! I had already eaten at Burger King with Daniel so we only ordered sake at the restaurant (*｀▽´)_旦~~ When we finished at the restaurant we randomly went to the pool hall to play pool and drink beer. I was not planning to stay out all night, but then we ended up at Emmas place where we continued drinking until everyone passed out (。-ω-)zzz
The focus is so fucked up in these pictures . . .
I am pouring sake for Kimii
Kimii did not like it haha . . .
Last week I was quite isolated at home while watching TV series non-stop, but when the weekend arrived I went out to celebrate my friend, Linas birthday (⌒▽⌒)☆ We started off with dinner at a japanese restaurant called "Katana". The food was super delicious, but the price was too damn high !! However, after we finished the food we continued to a pool and snooker hall/bar. I could only stay for a short while since I had booked midnight cinema with other friends, but I promised to come back to continue the celebration~ Well, at the cinema I watched the last part of the Twilight saga, Breaking Dawn part II. The movie was good and so was the company ♥ As promised, I went back to the bar to celebrate my friend after the movie ! And after that it was the usual; McDonalds and then home to someone to hang out before passing out.
Since my laptop died with all of my pictures and edit programs I have not been in the mood to blog. Several weeks has gone by and I am starting to feel the urge to blog again（＞д＜）So, since I can not use my own photos I will be using others.
1/11 was a thursday and I worked the evening shift as usual. When I got off work at 8pm I rushed home to L's place to get my hair, makeup and costume done for Fried Rice Halloween Party at Café Opera. We arrived at the party during midnight and met up with the rest of our friends. I met a zombie-like Minnie Mouse aka Beverly for the first time too (´∀｀)♡ I wished I had taken pictures with everyone, but I was too lazy to bring my clumsy camera. The party was awesome, as always at Fried Rice events ★
Café Opera is so beautiful~

Third and last day for most of the people. We did not do much during sunday, except for chilling in the park and eating at various fast food restaurants lol (>_<) In the end when there only were a few of us left we decided to bring our leftovers-booze to Monica's place and have a chill party (^_−)☆ I had a good time with everyone and an interesting walk back to the hotel with my roomates Daniel and Tuomas. There were random phone booths and dubstep showdowns . . .
Daniel and Tuomas
Monica . . . ? Lol
