First time: Sushi Yama

So Saturday I had this craving for sushi which I wanted to quench the next day, unfortunately the sushi place that's nearby is closed on sundays. I took it upon myself to find something else that was nearby when my memories took me to the Korean BBQ place in Amsterdam (Miss Korea) and reminded me of the amazing bibimbap that I had. As my craving hopped from one place to the next I asked my boyfriend if he'd be up for sushi since we have not had any for a while. As he said yes I started my search for something that would satisfy. Luckily enough I found a place called Sushi Yama. I had seen the place before but we had never been there. As I looked through the online menu I was ecstatic to see that they didn't just serve sushi.. they had bibimbap.

Upon arrival I was excited, the place looked very modern and very clean.
Three women were stood behind the counter as another couple ordered their food.
We looked through the menu again as my boyfriend decided he was going with the Grilled Chicken Poké Bowl and I stuck to my Yakiniku (grilled meat) Bibimbap plan, with a side order of Chuka Ika Sansai (squid salad).
As we moved to the counter we were greeted warmly by one of the employeed, she took our order and we were told we could have some free miso soup.

We sat down and our food came out maybe 5 minutes later.

The bibimbap I'm used to is usually scalding hot and fragrant so I have to say I was a little disappointed when there was neither scent nor heat. As I started mixing my food together I tasted some of the Chuka Ika Sansai, which tasted great. The Bibimbap was okay, despite the rice being lukewarm and the kimchi being a little bland for my taste.

Overall it was an okay experience and I am likely to go back, mostly because it is difficult to find this kind of food over here and I would like to check out some more things on their menu. Maybe next time I will actually go for some sushi.

Make sure you bookmark the blog somewhere since we will be in Amsterdam soon and I will vlog/blog things! (maybe not as I am there, but definitely when I am back!)

As always:


New beginnings.

As promised, here it is: (one of) the (many) update(s).

First of all, I'm doing fine, this is not a post to get you to worry or anything, like I stated in my previous post I'd like to change the direction of this blog a little.
The reason I started this blog was so I could release my creative juices whilst giving friends and family at home updates on how I'm doing, keeping a diary. The fact of the matter is that when you live somewhere new not every day is going to be an adventure. Almost a year in and honestly, I haven't done nearly as much as I expected. Which is okay, but a bit boring blog-wise. I decided that since I'm not longer live streaming (for now), I have more time to put into blogging (and everything else). As you can see, unless this is the first time you're here (Hi!), or you have just never paid attention (good possibility), I have a new lay out for my blog. With the new lay-out and style of the blog I'm getting a new domain too, which you will read about when the time has come. I shall post it on both my social media and here when it's been accepted and finalized :).

So what is this new direction we're heading in?

Glad that you ask, or didn't.
I have gathered quite some ideas over the past weeks, I will obviously still reflect on the things I have done, share pictures, songs and quotes that I'll have made and/or come across. On top of that there'll be some new additions. I will post monthly goals that I'll set for myself, certain recipes of things I made and loved, lists with things that interest/not interest me, tips and tops and maybe even certain challenges! I also have my first trip home coming up and might even try to do my first ever 'vlog'. With that said, if you have any comments or questions you can always comment on these blogs or hit me up on my social media! (Links are next to the 'arkiv' button under the header of the page). I am really excited for these changes since I am trying to turn my whole life upside down a bit, which I will reflect on in another post! (once again, don't worry.)

So I think that was it for now and I will start working on a new blogpost tomorrow!
Thanks for everyone who read this and as always,

Started a new hobby.

So last weekend I finally decided to pick up brush lettering as a start to practice calligraphy. It's something I've been wanting to do for .. years? And I finally decided to get me a little set! Stupid as I am, I didn't copy the pages before starting as I was very eager to start :) I'm sure I'll find some empty pages online somewhere with the guiding lines so I can practice more. I do it on a regular noteblock now seeing as I do not have these papers yet. I'm enjoying it immensely and can't wait until I become better at it!

I also have some other updates that I will be putting out this weekend and next week since the blog is going to be changing a bit. I have some things I would like to do, and just some other updates.
This is my last week at work before having some time off so I should have some time to work on these updates and everything, but you'll see that in time!

Thanks for sticking around <3
