The big 30.

On Wednesday I hit a big milestone, I turned 30!

Sometimes I still can’t believe it.
Life has been…balanced, so far. At heart, I feel like I’m still 16 most of the time, which reminds me of something keoshi tends to say in these cases “We don’t grow up, we just grow old”. And it’s quite quite true! I’m still the same person I was when I was 16, just, perhaps, wiser more experienced.

And now it’ll be even more fun! Everyday now I wonder how is he/she is going to turn out. What are we going to teach he/she while he/she grows up? Oh it’s going to be fun! Tiring and overwhelming, but most of all, fun and loving.

It’s going to be a nice year.




On Wednesday we went for dinner at The Insólito, and it was really nice. The food was amazing and the moment will definitely have a special place in my heart forever.


We started off with a really nice seafood broth, that had the right amount of spice and the perfect freshness and sea flavor in every spoon.


Since I can’t have anything raw or undercooked I had a really really nice pork belly, with a bread mix with chorizo and boiled spinach, with clams, everything swimming in a nice broth – what we here call Carne de Porco à Alentejana. K had octopus with vegetables and sweet potato gnocchi, that was also pretty delicious.


The staff was very nice and everything was very pleasant. It was indeed a nice bday dinner. Too bad I couldn’t eat any oysters, because they looked yummy! Next time, for sure.

Unfortunately, due to the amount of people with the flu at school, I came down with a pretty bad one. I can’t take any medicine now, which makes it it’s even lovelier… So I had to stay put and stay in bed today, and hopefully I’ll be better by Sunday.


Lastly I want to thank everyone for the bday wishes! Thank you all!
Have a great day!
