Weekly Obsessions

Weekly Obsessions, part 3 – villages, port wine and hentai

Double update today! Well, there’re going to be lots of these this month, it is that time of the year after all. 😀 Without further ado, another  list of weekly obsessions.

1. Fiskars Village

This week I was on my two-day business trip with nine of my colleagues, we went to this tiny village just about 1.5 hours car ride away from Helsinki to celebrate the ten-year anniversary of our program at work. Finland has lots of tiny villages like Fiskars. They used to be a place where iron works were made, in this case knives and scissors, branded Fiskars also. Of course, now the literal making of those knives and scissors have move away from these villages, leaving behind beautiful old houses and studios. Most of them turned themselves into tourist destination targeting work groups like we were. We stayed at Fiskars Wärdshus which is the oldest inn in Finland, established 1836 and their service has been uninterrupted. It was stunningly beautiful, with simple comfortable hotel rooms and delicious food. We booked ourselves a guide to walk us around telling historical stories of the town and our guide is a retired teacher, a tiny lady who has some sharp wit. I love stories! And then we had a presentation at Bianco Blue glass studio. The glassblower Tarmo was a local full of funny stories and entertained us with them while we watched how effortlessly glass elephants and flowers were made right in front of our eyes. I love that tiny village so much. Not to mention all the small boutiques and handiwork shops showing the best of Scandinavian handicraft. I shopped till I dropped. I hate shopping for clothes and stuff, but crazy discounted prices of kitchen wares and knives from the Fiskars outlet store did me in. I got three new knives for my kitchen! I will definitely go back there, and if you ever decide to visit Finland and Helsinki is really not that interesting, pay a visit to Fiskars!

2. Supersize versus Superskinny

Yes, yet another program about unhealthy lifestyles. I binged on this entertaining British shows that is already on its 7th season. The idea is getting one fattie and one thinnie into the ‘feeding clinic’ in where they swapped their diets for two days. The supersize gets the tiny or nonexistent meals of the superskinny’s and vice versa. I like this lifestyle change program the most compared to others because they don’t only concentrate on the over-eaters. They show also the other extreme of the spectrum, what happens when you don’t eat enough. The show offers some good infos, statistics and a tiny showcase of how disastrous bad diet can be. You can pretty much find all of the episodes on Youtube.

3. The Kinky Christmas Calendar

A great idea I got this week! 😀 Get back here every day to check about the fetish of the day! I already decided on the top 25 of my favorite fetishes, and I will schedule my updates so that even when I leave for China on the 17th, there would be something kinky coming on every day till Christmas. And I visiting Hong Kong, where Internet without the fire wall works again, I will update something substantial. You wouldn’t even notice that I’m gone. 😀 Well I’m going to notice, 20 days without sex or kink will be hard. Not even mentioning I probably will miss His Domliness like crazy.

4. Bible Black

And talking about sex and kink, I watch a lot of hentai. Japanese cartoon porn, yes. And a fun fact, the infamous tentacle porn that represents hentai for most people who don’t watch hentai, there is actually a very good reason for it. See, Japan has a law that all the genitalia must be censored in porn. If you do find Japanese porn that is uncensored, it was made for foreign market. So some porn makers invented tentacle porn, cos in theory tentacle is not genitalia, although they might look exactly like one. In other words, tentacle porn fights censorship! Go tentacles! Anyhoo, back to my obsession this week. Apart from tentacle action, hentai is known for the brilliant stories. I know right, who wants stories when watching porn. Once in a while, a series of hentai will step on my path, and it would be so good that it turns from porn with a story into a story that has some hardcore porn in it. Bible Black is quite old, made in 2000, but for some reason I haven’t watched it until recently. It’s a fascinating and tragic story of witchcraft gone so wrong, with some very kinky sex scenes. Uncensored. And those tentacles don’t make a appearance very often. If you have never watched hentai, Bible Black might not be the best to be your first. It’s quite extreme. But if you enjoy horror and kink mixed with your porn experience, BB will deliver. And for the devil’s sake, don’t watch English dubbed versions, they are absolutely horrible.

5. Nirvana the port wine

I don’t drink port wines, although I love my red. And I don’t eat dark chocolate, cos I think it’s cheating. If I want chocolate I want the milkiness with it. So when I was introduced this particular port wine that is particularly made to accompany dark chocolate, I wasn’t that impressed at first. I’ve never quite believed that food and wine pairings are my thing, cos I only drink red, even when I eat fish and white meat. Until I tried this combination, which absolutely defines pairings! A piece of dark chocolate and a sip of Dow’s port wine, hmmm, like the name suggests: Nirvana.
