#OOTD – the past two weeks

I love summer days, in the summer you can wear more colorful clothes.

In fact, most of my clothes the whole year round are quite colorful, because life is already boring, we need more colors! But let’s be honest, sometimes it’s difficult to find colorful a winter coat (I’m still trying!)

I love taking mirror selfies in the elevator because elevator time is boring, if you are lucky, you’ve got a nice mirror inside so you can take selfies like this.

I did got caught by neighbours a couple of times when I forgot to push the button and they entered, found me inside taking pictures…. that was embarrasing, thank you, Instagram stories!

Above are my ootds from the past two weeks, I don’t go outside every day but those were the days I went outside!

Weather has been comfortable these days, 21-25 degrees, so you can wear summer clothes but without sweating!

Dusseldorf

I just realised that I’ve never shared photos taken in Dusseldorf on my last trip there.

It’s a city I kinda like, not the way I like Paris or Berlin, but I kinda like it. I can’t explain why, maybe because it’s slightly bigger than the city I currently live, making it more interesting to discover. I used to like it because there are quite a few Japanese ramen restaurants, but nowadays there have opened more and more ramen place in Belgium too, so I don’t find a reason to visit Dusseldorf any more.

Anyways, here are some photos I took on my last trip.

K20 K21 are great modern art museums, I was trying to visit a cool exhibition but unfortunately it was closed because of the public museum opendoor day, so only part of the museums are open, but it was all free.

So I went to see Ai Weiwei exhibition, because it was free.

The café inside the museum is so beautiful, don’t you think so?

Tasty glutinous rice bowl in Hanoi

Hey, I miss Vietnam so much! In Belgium when you think about Vietnamese food, you can only find pho, pho isn’t bad of course, but there’s so much more varieties if food you can find in Vietnam.

I guess it’s normal, just like in the west, when it comes to Indian food, you only find chicken tikka masala or chicken curry, I remember when I first visited India, I got so confused with their menu, as nowhere you can the word “curry” in the menu lol.

So, in Vietnam, I was sooooo happy to try all kinds of local dishes!

This little restaurant is called Xoi Yen, it seemed somewhat popular, sometimes you have to queue if you want to take away, but inside there are normally seats.

Hanoi old town is touristic, you find English and Chinese language in the menu, so it’s easy to understand.

Glutinous rice is their specialty, you can choose what kind of rice you want, then choose toppings, there are so many toppings to choose from, meat, chicken, mushrooms etc.

I find it super tasty ^^

If you are in Hanoi, don’t forget to check it out!

I miss Taiwan night market food!

Have you ever been to Taiwan, it’s such a lovely place I loved it!

Well, I didn’t like it that much when I first arrived in Tainan. I thought it was modern as Japan, maybe not as modern as Tokyo but at least… but it wasn’t what I thought, Taiwan feels more nostalgic, like something you see in 80s Hong Kong movies or something.

But I quickly started to like it, I like how genuine everything is, people are warm and nice. They don’t have that many huge shopping centers like many other Asian cities, but you see various food markets, family run little restaurants in most cities. Streets are alive and vibrant.

The most wonderful thing about Taiwan is its night markets.

Here are some photos I took in various markets. I could have taken more pictures but maybe I was too busy eating.

Can you guess what those snacks are?

I love Taiwanese beef noodles!!
