This event was to raise awareness for the fact that Indonesian food can perfectly well be combined with wines, and to let us get to know the wines they have on their menu.

In this post I’ll write all about the experiences at my first media event: food – wines – connections – experience!

Tapas at “De Markt” in Breda

I looove tapas. First of all I usually really love those typical Spanish dishes, but I mainly love the idea of shared dining. You get to eat so many different dishes! You don’t have to choose! (Foodie dreams) And you can discover and taste new things together.

So I was quite happy when the boyfriend agreed to eat tapas for his birthday dinner last week. Quuuite happy. We chose to go to The Markt in Breda: read about our experiences in this post!

Sundays… I love Sundays. We’re going to the movies in about half an hour (it’s still my boyfriends birthday weekend as I’m typing this!) and we’ve cleaned all of our little house today. But now that he’s gone for groceries, I have half an hour to dedicate to this blog post. With the sun shining on my computer. Did I mention that I love Sundays?

Last week I met up with my dear friend Natasha, who was back after her internship abroad. She has been one of my closest friends from the beginning of our education, even though we were divided in different classes after our first year. We didn’t see each other for so long, but everything still felt the same! This post will describe the cute coffee place we visited.

Restaurant review: Denovo in Breda

DSCN5428

So, I promised you I would discuss my birthday dinner at winebar Denovo in this post.A promise is a promise so here you go: a step by step review of what we liked and (perhaps) did not like!

Last Friday was my birthday, on which I basically spent the whole day cooking. When the boyfriend came home however, it was time to start celebrating! I chose Denovo, because it looked rather interesting (even though the menu on the website didn’t show that many items… Maybe a mistake?) and, to be honest, because it was within walking distance from our home. This restaurant can be found on the outer circle of Breda’s city centre.

Good day to you!

I hope you’ve had a good weekend. I know I did 🙂 To be honest: I spent waaaay to much time working on my new website. Especially on Saturday I felt my eyes turning into squares! But I was so keen to get it right that I wanted to work on it until it was. Hopefully you’re able to look at this post on a beautiful website now! Let me know in the comments what you think, or send me a message if you have any suggestions.

To summarize: on Saturday my mom and I went to the Seal Sanctuary close to our home. It opened recently, and we were curious to see it. After that we went for lunch at “Zoet of Zout”, which is a newly opened restaurant right next to the sanctuary. I will write about my experiences later in this post! In the afternoon I went for a coffee with two of my dear friends. We had so much to discuss, as always 😉 On Sunday I visited my cousin Dagmar in Amsterdam, but I will describe that in a different post. First: The sanctuary and lunch!
