Nice time in Nice

View from the Club

Because I had such a good time in Paris last month, I just had to go again to France, this time to the French Riviera, to hear the beautiful French language again :X:X. Or maybe it was just an SRE offsite. Who knows?

It was really exciting to go there. It reminded me of the various physics and pro­gram­ming com­pe­ti­tions that I went to in high school. Going on a plane where more then half the people were like minded nerds and spending some days talking to most exotic geeky stuff? Sounds like great fun!

We stayed at Club Med Opio en Provence, which is half an hour's drive away continue.

Nutribullet

Nutribullet base

Nu­tribul­let base

For Christmas, a colleague of mine bought himself a juicer and a blender and he was super happy about them. So, for my birthday, my right hand surprised me by ordering me the blender my colleague had: the Nu­tribul­let 600.

And boy, was it a nice surprise. It's super convenient and super easy to clean. My parents have a juicer at home, but it usually takes more time to clean it than to drink the fruit juice. This blender has only two parts that have to be cleaned and, if done quickly enough, it's enough to basically just rinse them for 30 seconds under tap continue.

Gardening

Spinach and salad small plants

About two months ago, we had a TetraPak gardening class at work. During this class we learned how to seed and care for spinach (left in the above picture) and salad (right) plants in a 1L milk box.

They grew quite slowly. This was after one week.

And after a month they we're this big.

And this is the end result. My breakfast 40 days after I started growing the salads. Yummy :D

But these were just short term "gar­den­ing" ex­per­i­ments. I also wanted to try my hand at keeping a plant alive for longer term.

So after a week I also bought a Hibiscus flower, continue.

Cura de slăbire

La începutul vacanței am fost la cineva și m-am cântărit pe un cântar electronic. Și rezultatul a fost de xy kg. Care îi muuuult prea mult. Știam eu că în sesiune am mâncat în prostie (îmi place să ronțăi când învăț), dar nu credeam că am ajuns în halul ăsta. Mai ales că înainte să vin la Cluj aveam un zt kg foarte re­spectabil.

Așa că m-am apucat de o cură de slăbire. În aceeași seară deja am decis (ajutat de mami) să nu mai mănânc seara. Bazat pe un articol pe care l-am citit care spuneau de un regim super-mega-hiper-sănătos, să nu mănânci timp de 16 ore, iar apoi continue.

Viață de student: desert

De anul trecut am început să îi zic la mami să mă învețe să fac una-alta prin bucătărie, că mi-or prinde bine aceste cunoștințe la Cluj, ca student. La capitolul mâncăruri nu prea am trecut de nivelul cartofi pai, omletă, macaroane cu brânză (asta deja aici am „învățat”), dar la capitolul prăjituri stăteam un pic mai bine: cred că am făcut și ceva prăjitura cu două blaturi :> :>. Din păcate, unde stau nu am cuptor, așa că all those skills have been useless so far. :( Până acum trebuia să mă mulțumesc cu dulciuri mai „ele­mentare”: chestii gata făcute de la magazin, budincă (că se face pe aragaz), continue.
