The Japanese Carbonara Spagetti

Look at this beauty! I wanted to go for a pasta dish the other day when I met up for lunch with my friends at Joyfull. The Joyfull chain restaurants serve a whole lot of deliciousness and this was my first Carbonara Spagetti outside of Europe. It was quite good and the egg on top was quite different from what I am used to.

Tv Show: Stranger Things

Here another review! This show was quite short but very very exciting!

Have you guys heard of “Stranger Things”, the new Netflix series? It came out this year and got a lot of people hooked!

The show has a whole of 8 episodes and takes place in the 80ies in the American Town Hawkins. Will, a boy of 12 years old one day mysteriously dissapears. His friends, family and the police start a search to find him but soon his body is found in a lake. But something is very wrong about his whole disappearance and also, about Wills body. Strange things are happing in the town. More people go missing and Will’s mom is receiving mysterious phone calls from her son. 

To find out what has happened to Will and if he is still alive, the characters of the show join forces to get behind the secrets of the woods that surround the town. 

“Stranger Things” is definitely an exiciting show to watch. Check it out if you like mystery and suspense. It definitely is a bit scary and exciting at times, but so worth the watch. The acting is so amazing, the story line so thought through and the characters are so greatly portrayed and developed! 

Tv Show: Downton Abbey

Wow, I remember starting this show when I was home on vacation in Germany in July! I actually finished the whole series! It was good but often pretty long. There are a lot of characters in the show and they focus on each one of them.

If you love the Twenties and history, definitely check out Downton Abbey. It has a bit of a Pride and Prejudice feel (one of the characters actually refers to Elizabeth Bennett), but with a more modern feel. You can see the characters reaction to political happenings, new inventions coming into their lives (like the telephone), new styles arriving and how the woman gets more and more independent in the world of the twenties. 

Review on ‘The Office’ | American version

I’m finally done with watching the Office. I really liked the show and I was excited to go through it. Parks and Recreation is probably still my favorite but the Office really emphasizes the normal workplace many people go to every day and it shows you how much fun you can have in a mediocre day. Parks and Rec doesn’t really show a simple and mundane work life. It’s a bit different. I am very interested in starting up the British Office now! 

But hey, next week the new Flash Season starts!!! I’m not even missing Doctor Who, which pauses for a while because the writer is arranging his last season. We will see how Doctor Who turns out next year!

Pocari Sweat- my savior in times of heat 


When I first saw this bottle 7 years ago on my first visit to Japan I was thinking: why would anyone call his drink sweat? 

Well, here I am, laughing now. This drink saved my health a couple of times. Okinawa is hot and you sweat a lot. And sometimes water is just not enough. I know plenty of visitors who just get dehydrated by the weather here and the unexpected heat and just water can’t replenish their electrolytes. One of my friends couldn’t get well. She felt tired and exhausted. She even couldn’t keep in food and threw up regularly. 

This drink, as well as Aquarius, helped her get back to her normal help. She drank it and felt so much better. Food stayed down (gross, sorry!) and was her normal self again. I guess it’s like Powerade or another vitamin drink and I really helps when you feel dehydrated. 

I often drink it when I’m sick with fever or after sports. If you live in Japan or even Korea try it out! It will help you lots if you feel exhausted and need a bit more than water. 

Starbucks in Korea: Latte Dolce


I am always eager to try new things. This Latte was a special at the Korean Starbucks in Incheon, a Latte Dolce. It’s Coffee and sweetened milk. It was good but I got too big of a dice and got a bit sick of it by the end of the drink. 

My first Butter Beer


I visited the Warner Brothers Studios in London and joined the Harry Potter Tour. Here I had my first Butter Beer and I enjoyed it very much, even though the taste is not really my thing. It’s like very sweet but watered down Ginger Ale with Whip Cream on top.
