Vitsippan ute i backarna står

I just got back to Hong Kong after spending one wonderful week in Sweden – watching Fall transform into Spring.

SNÖKRISTALLER

Af snökristaller klara står fältet prydt; om några veckor endast är allt förbytt. I glittren emot solen och fröjden er; snart sjunken I som tårar i jorden ner. I, vinterns vackra blomster, snart vissnen I, men utaf edra tårar skall blommor bli. Om några veckor endast är allt förbytt: af vårens väna blomster står fältet … Continue reading

My ordinary schedule with weekly posts was difficult to hold up during my Italy trip, and will blame it all on the lack of a reliable internet connection (and possible that I indulged the laid-back italian lifestyle little bit too much!). Despite visiting … Continue reading

Excuses for my absence – Day 13

Day 13, Monday: Issue a public apology. This can be as funny or as serious or as creative as you want it to be.

Greetings from Jakarta

Finally – I had a little misfortune with my external hard drive, which unexpectedly without any warning decided to give up on me. I do love ( like is more honest ) technology  as long as everything works fine, nothing breaks down and don’t give me any trouble. After screaming at my hard drive – without … Continue reading
