    My Christmas 2009

    It's been a year since he popped up the question to me. Until now , it feels like it was just yesterday. We celebrated xmas at the same place and same family as last year. With his family or my in laws in Norway. It felt like we were at the very same situation when he asked me to marry him on xmas 2008. Only difference is, this time his Christmas gift for me is no longer a ring. :)

    'Jag såg mamma kyssa tomten jag! :)'

    Our family :)

    We have lots of gifts to open and this lil' kid can't wait...

    And to everyone,

    Merry Christmas!

    God Jul!


    Maligayang Pasko!!!


    Sweden Culture

    Just wanna share the videos/slideshows I made for our Sweden Culture presentation in our SFI class. I'm just proud of my work, all my classmates including my teacher had fun with our show and they all said it's great!

    I did a videoke thing. Even if I'm an epic fail singer, they all enjoyed my concert! haha.

    Du Gamla Du Fria - Sweden National Anthem

    I love this Swedish song by Amy Diamond. Julen är här - it means Christmas is here.

    Hope ya'll like it and enjoyed it too!

    Merry Christmas!


    Moi White iPhone & My Rants About Sweden

    I had it long time ago, I've just always missed to write about it. Not that I'm bragging, I just wanna keep a record and rate every gadgets that I have or get to mention that I'm a gadget freak. :P

    By the way, this post is not about how expensive my iPhone is but about how I finally got it against the stupid Swedish rules. Oh yeah until now I'm still adjusting with the Sweden culture & stuffs. There are times that I can't help myself comparing Philippines and here. I always whine about it. Haha. Philippines is a lot poorer country compared here but I never really like the views and buildings here. It's waaay too simple for me or maybe I just have a high standards :P What I really hate is about the do-it-yourself rule here. It's ok that I have to pack my own groceries but fetching, installing or assembling the expensive furnitures we got is freakin'ly annoying me. Note that we're paying a very expensive tax here, eerrr ok not me, since I dont have a job yet haha :P What I mean is, in Phil., you give them a 20 - 50 pesos and they'll serve you like a queen! Ok i'm not that a big whiner, Sweden is an egalitarian country which I really like here opposite to how it is in Philippines. But enough of it, let's go back to my iphone. We have been planning to get a new phone way way back but the stupid rules stopped us. We're just like 6 months here and they require us to be at least 8 mos. registered here before they'd let us shop for a new phone. I was so pissed coz I badly want their package, with free spotify and internet so i can surf around wherever I am plus i think it is cheaper and more convenient for us to pay through installment. Comparing to Phil. again, they'd always please and beg you to shop or get a loan to them regardless if you can afford it or not. Talagang ibabaon ka pa nila sa utang. Good or not? I don't know. There's always a pros & cons. :)

    Anyways I couldn't wait for another one or two months so we bought it in cash instead. Disadvantage: I can't surf unlimited and I'm using the prepaid one. Thank God there's a wifi almost everywhere.:)



    Alright, since nothing can stop me from being uber busy lately, I thought of blogging through my iPhone . :) It's great I found an application for this, now I can blog whatever & wherever I am. :D.
