it’s my f**kin’ lucky day!

I went out tonight with two Filipino friends – Neil and Mark – and on our way from Ett Glass where we had a few drinks to Elsker, one of Oslo’s gay clubs, we dropped by Hotel Bristol to pee. No waiting in line, and cleaner toilets with proper overhead lighting. So why not, right?

Descending from the ground floor to one floor below where the toilets are, Neil and I were discussing about where the Norwegian Idol contestants were billeted during the run of the show. I said, “Oh, right here.” At the drop of the word “here,” my eyes met a familiar figure standing at the base of the stairs. And I couldn’t help but say “Oh…. My…. God (with God sounding more like a squeal).”

It was f**kin’ Alejandro Fuentes.

There he was wearing a jacket, a white shirt and a black scarf wrapped around his neck, busy listening to music from his Sony Ericsson phone while idly standing right on that spot. I was so astounded to stop and break his moment, so Neil, Mark and I just dashed towards the toilet. I still couldn’t conceal my excitement and so Neil decided that he’ll go to him and ask if we could have our pictures taken. Like the nice guy that he was when I first met him at Strømmen Storsenter three Saturdays ago, he obliged with a smile. Neil and Mark first went a go at it.

Then I came up to him, beamed a huge smile, stood to his right, and said, “Hey, I saw you in Strømmen.” Unexpectedly, he replied sounding as excited as I was and said, “Yes! You! You’re the guy who loved the Kowalski (his shoes)! Hva heter du igjen (What’s your name again)? as he extended his right hand to shake mine. “Mark.” “Hi,” he said. Then I told him that I saw him perform in tonight’s Idol and he asked how he was. I said, “You’re good. As always.” Click.

Then he asked us “What’s up with you guys tonight?” to which I replied “Just out, partying.” “That’s nice,” he said. Damn I should have invited him out, pushed my luck a little bit. Aaaaaaargh! Then we just bid goodbyes and the three of us went back to the toilets, where I called Knut from to tell about my second encounter with Ali.

Damn, it’s my lucky day! See, it pays to compliment one man of his shoes.

saturday seafood dinner


I made dinner tonight and came up with this. Knut and I have always paired fish fillets with tomato sauce, but this time, I’ve decided to make a tartar sauce made with creme fraiche, capers, dill, parsley and lemon juice. I picked gourmet “steinbit” (wolffish) for the fish fillet, while the side salad was made with alfalfa, asparagus, cherry tomatoes, and crayfish tails. Hmmm!

snowjoggers or not?

After Keng told me about this comeback kickers called “Snowjoggers” – part sneakers and part snow boots – and seeing it in real life, I am seriously considering buying a pair for winter.



Here’s a little write-up from Style Dash:

“These colorful Snowjoggers hail from Scandinavia, where men and women spend the long winter months trudging through icy, wet streets on cold dark days. And unlike other winter boots, which offer little in the way of traction and sole flexibility, the Snowjoggers feel just like your go-fasters, only warmer. “

What do you think? Me thinks they’re cool. Okay, the colorful one might be a little too much. :)
