Helsinki, 2 degrees

What a day! I love my job! Besides my regular office duties, I've visited two cafés and one restaurant today! I'm sure you've all heard about the video that put Helsinki on BBC's top read news list, but if not, please have a look! I visited the internet controlled café in question today and listened to a discussion about the current Finnish food cultural scene. You might get the idea of the café from the photos here, but I strongly recommend you to watch the videoclip as well, since you can't understand the movement of the café tables and chairs from still photos.

In addition, I visited restaurant Kiila that's opening today!! It seemed great, a restaurant that functions daytime as a café/lounge/lunch restaurant, and in the evening as dinner restaurant/bar/club. During the weekends it's a brunch place as well, wow! And it couldn't be more central, yey!

Furthermore, I met such a nice new acquaintance at Kiila that we went to the newly opened @bar together, Absolute Vodka's first pop up bar in the world!!! The bar is like a physical Facebook: you walk in in a room and meet new people who actually start randomly speaking to you! The room itself is continously changing and everybody should leave a mark of oneself in the bar space. The bar is like the internet: a place to hang out, a chat room, and an endless source of inspiration. The bar’s menu of e-drinks changes weekly. How cool is that?


Despite my busy day, I've had the time to notice that my blog is approaching one hundred followers! Incredible! I would like to take this chance to thank you dear readers for reading and commenting! You make my day by being active on my blog! Please join the Facebook page as well to get updates directly to your Facebook account! At least at this point, I don't want to have giveaways in my blog since I don't want my blog to be commercial in that sense, but what I want to do is to award my 100rd follower with a Helsinki related present. So that's why I want to ask you: what kind of a Helsinki related item would you like to receive? What is the one item that you relate the most to Helsinki?
