#2264 – This Week’s Story

ENGLISH This week has been … an interesting one for me. I started this week with quite a jetlag as I was back in Amsterdam on Sunday morning from my sudden last-minute “trip” to Indonesia for my dad’s passing earlier this month. And as I have shared a few days ago, right now I am…

#2246 – Flu and A Baby Shower

ENGLISH I guess one downside of the “prolonged” cold weather here in the Netherlands is … the flu! Haha 😛 . For quite some time I saw people around me getting some flu, to varying degree. For a while I thought I was, both, lucky and had great immune system (haha) because I was unaffected….

#2245 – Tennis Lesson, Snow, and Mark Rutte

ENGLISH This week, finally I had my tennis lesson! Haha 😛 . You know, it was supposed to start two weeks ago but as I shared, it had to be cancelled back then because it was snowing here in Amsterdam so the (outdoor) court was in no shape to be used. But then, last week…

#2227 – More Stories From Last Week

ENGLISH I just realized (by the time I wrote this post, of course, lol 😆 ) that last week‘s Monday was, what I would call, a “super bridging” day. This was because the preceeding Saturday and Sunday were, obviously, a weekend; and the following Tuesday and Wednesday were public holidays! Lol 😆 . I went…

#2220 – This Year’s Winter Solstice

ENGLISH Yesterday was the winter solstice here in the Northern Hemisphere, meaning it was the day with the shortest day light in 2018. In fact … yep, the sun rose at 08:48 and already set at 16:29, meaning only 7 hours and 41 minutes of daylight! Depressing, wasn’t it? Haha 😛 But the flip side of…
