Avocado Tuna Salad

Hello, this will be a short review on my first trial to make Avocado Tuna salad. You know what, I never a fan of avocado (except when it’s an avocado juice with choco milk on top), wait, I meant was I never a fan of salty avocado. I was watching the tutorial on making this salad on Facebook (Natasha’s Kitchen page) and I thought it was easy and worth to try. So, here it is:

IMG_5233It tasted so YUMMY! I loveeee it. This is the first time I said HAIL to avocado. I think the Tuna was the hero of this salad. Actually, you can easily make it at home, cause I will tell you the ingredients:

1 Avocado, cut into dice

1/2 cucumber, cut into dice

1/2 onion, chop..chop.

Tuna, the amount is optional

1/2 cup of lemon juice

3 tablespoon of olive oil

Salt and pepper

How to make it: Mix all of the ingredients in one bowl and VOILA! dinner is ready! Tasty, fresh, and healthy and especially Guilt free!

Winter’s Break at Barcelona

barcelona

I captured the picture above using my old iPhone 5, but still, it looks amazing. You truly cannot underestimate the enchanting beauty of Barcelona.

It was the week after the winter Exam on the early week of February when my classmates/best friends and I decided to do our first trip together. We were a group of 5 students really needed to escape from the cold rainy days during the winter and we need to release the stressful tension during the full exam month in January. Yup! we decided to go to Barcelona! Since none of us happened to visit this city. So, why not! We got the flight ticket only for 24 euros for a return ticket from Brussel to Barcelona! Thanks to Ryan Air. This is the reason why I love traveling in Europe. My friend, Mike, booked a very nice hostel in Barcelona (with a very cheap price) only around 10 euros for a person staying for 4 nights. Which is amazing for student’s pocket. At first, i underestimated a hostel, but, this one got to steal my heart. Cause it’s simply cute and clean and so close to the city center! Continue reading “Winter’s Break at Barcelona”

5 Things you regularly do when you are a student in Brussels

When you are a student of this capital city of Belgium, you gotta used to do these 5 things:

  1. Old buildings and parks are around you. Just walk around and within few meters, you will see some other parks or gardens. According to this sites (http://www.brussels.be/artdet.cfm/5443) Brussels has around 50 parks and gardens. However, since I lived in Ixelles, so my closest parks was Flagey and Bois de la Chambre. I wanna show you my walking/running view to the park near Flagey. Plus, you will see so many expensive houses (although they are really old buildings, somehow I’m not sure why they are so damn expensive)

Christmas Market Trip to Koln, Germany

I would call this a major throwback post since the trip to Koln was a year ago. Before I lost too many pictures on my computer again, I get to write about this magical place. It was around late November on 2015, when I was still studying in Belgium. I googled about “Christmas Market in Europe” then what I got was this whole site about cities in Europe and they Christmas Market. When I googled the biggest Christmas market in Europe, Koln was one of them. I checked the website for Mega Bus (it’s the budget bus company that travel within European countries), then Voila! I got the very cheap ticket to go to Koln. Me and my friend, Shinta, were choosing the very first morning departure (we got to face the coldest day in Winter to get up and go out at around 3 degrees). It’s been a one day trip back and forth on the same day because we didn’t have the time to stay over in Koln. The trip from Brussel Nord Station to Koln Flughafen (Koln Airport) was around 2 hours straight. To get to the city center, where the Christmas Market was, we need to take the train. The train station was in the basement of the airport. We bought the 1-day trip train ticket so we wouldn’t need to buy another ticket to going back in the night. Here’s the picture of my trip to Koln just to hunt the food and the Christmas ambiance in Europe. It has been my dream to feel the Christmas spirit in the cold winter weather and also snow, just like in the movies. LOL.

So let’s start with the first place in Koln,  Koln-Bonn Flughafen. They really have such a nice airport and train stations.

This is the way in/out to get to the city center. We were waiting for our train. After that, we went straight to the first market that our eyes brought us to. Since they had like 7 different market all over the city, so, we didn’t really count which market is which.
