With this great weather in the Netherlands, I’m enjoying my own garden a lot. It almost feels like I’m in Ibiza with these great temperatures, and I’m more into trying some new cocktails on these hot summer evenings. It’s some time ago already that I made a blogpost about a cocktail. I don’t have a lot of time to write Blogs these days, hihi it’s not that we’re not drinking any cocktails;-). But tonight Martin is in Breda watching a Hockey champignonship with some Japanese guys and the Japanese ambassador, so I picked up my camera to make some cocktail pictures.

Last week, we were invited for lunch at Japanese friends of us. They asked us if we want to eat Sushi and Tempura, but we had to make the Sushi ourselves. Of course we wanted that, we love eating Sushi and tempura. But making it is quite another story. The last time I made Nigiri Sushi myself, all the rice was sticking to my fingers and the Sushi really looked awful. But when we arrived at our friends house it turned out that they had a very easy way of making Sushi, together sitting at the table. Even for us Dutchies it was simple, so we tried it this week already at home. Continue reading “Making super easy Sushi Japanese style”
It’s been some time since I made a Blogpost about Curacao, while I do have a lot more to show you of the island, where we’ve been and what great places they have to eat. So it’s time to write some more Blogposts.
Every day when we drove back to our appartment at Jan Thiel baai, we came by this funny fruit wagon, called Asis Fruitwagen. It has this funny thing on it with Groeten en Fruit. Whiche means Greetings and Fruit. But in Dutch you see a lot Groenten en Fruit (so with an extra n at Groeten, and then it means vegetables). I don’t know if it was a typing error, but it’s a great one in this case. Continue reading “Groeten en Fruit – Asis Fruitswagen in Curacao”
Yesterday we went to Mono Japan, a little exhibition with Japanese craft, design and art. The exhibition is held from 15 Februari until 19 Februari 2018 in the Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy in Amsterdam, of which the 19th is on invitation only. We thought we could go quick on Friday around 13.00, but that was a little problem. We were already a little late and right before the bridge of Gorinchem we stood still for more than an hour. An accident has happened on the bridge and a little bit further on the A27 there was also an accident. But after 1,5 hour delay we finally arrived at the Lloyd hotel.

So it’s a long time since I wrote a blogpost for Cocktail Friday. The last post for Cocktail Friday was in Suriname, a Rum Cola. Time to try a new cocktail. And since it’s friday today, and I was up for a little cocktail, I tried a Gin Tonic.
Some time ago we were having dinner at ‘t Weeshuys in Geertruidenberg and we drank this delicious cocktail with Bobby’s gin for the first time. If we go out, I love to try new Gin’s, because you don’t have to buy a whole bottle at once and I can get some inspiration for decorating my G&T’s. With this Gin we were both so enthusiastic, that I bought the ingredients immediately online when I got home. Continue reading “A Gin Tonic with Bobby’s gin for Cocktail Friday”
If you really want to take a nice souvenir back home and also want to visit a special place, then you should definitely visit Serena’s Art factory. When I’m travelling, I like it a lot to take different souvenirs home, and for me that’s the case with a Chichi. Continue reading “Serena’s Art factory Curaçao”
Driving around on Curacao with a friend of us, he gave us the tip to have lunch or dinner at Pop’s place. He knows that we like Surinamese food, so he thought that we would like the food from Curacao too. On the 2nd of January we went to the restaurant to see of they were open, but they were not. Two days later they were open, so we went there to have lunch. Continue reading “Pop’s place, where you can eat delicious local food in Curacao”
The pro of having family on the island is that they take you sometimes to the nicest places and restaurants of the island. Last week the niece of Martin’s mother brought us to some great beaches on the western side of the island. Last Saturday we went with her to a really nice fish restaurant in Willemstad, named Purunchi Koredor. Continue reading “Fish restaurant Purunchi Koredor Curacao”
On Jan Thiel beach you can find this idyllic part of the beach near Koko’s beach. I think it’s new or recently renovated by Chogogo resort, which is close to this part of the beach. It looks great and is very quiet, and nothing better if you’re on a tropical island than to have a great topical beach on the other side of the street. Continue reading “Koko’s Beach on Jan Thiel baai, Curacao”
While I was moving all the Blogs from Photosforfoodies to Cakes and Pumps I noticed that I never wrote a Blog about Rum Cola. And this happens to be the most made cocktail in Suriname, which is the country where my hubby Martin is born and where we have spent almost 6 vacations already. So the choice was made quickly , the first Cocktail Friday Blog for Cakes and Pumps is about Rum Cola, or better a Borgoe Cola, with Surinamese rum.
