Stack that money, sushi roll

Hello everyone! Long time no see, but I'm back with a new blogpost. Yesterday I went to a really good sushi restaurant in Haren called Yugo with my mother and some of her friends and their children. The sushi and other warm dishes were delicious and it was a lot of fun. I took some pictures and I'm going to show you them.
My favorite sushi's are the ones with tempura shrimp and the ones with eel. But to be honest, I think I like every sushi. I'm obsessed with it and I think I could eat this everyday. 
The warm dishes were also so good! I ate so much, that I was still full, the next morning. By the way, the title of this post comes from the song "My World" by Iggy Azalea. It's not that I like the song or something, but I thought it was funny as a title.
Doesn't this look amazing? Okay, maybe this is my favorite sushi, chicken and asparagus. When you put this sushi in your mouth, you are eating perfection. 

Did I make you hungry, because I made myself hungry. I'm going to eat something really quick and then I'm going to see a movie with a good friend of mine.

60 happy days | #100happydays


Another twenty happy days been past and you know what that means, right? If you don't know, you probably didn't read this or this post. I am going to do another #100happydays update. The #100happydays-challenge is basically that you have to post a picture of something that made you happy that day and share it on one of your social media accounts (I use Instagram, @daniquexh98).  



41. I love notebooks! I think I have twenty of them, just because they are cute. I bought this  notebook in China where you can write movie reviews in.

42. It's always a good time to eat gelato, even at 01:00 AM. My favorite flavors? Hazelnut and cookies. 

43. Getting a massage. The masseur cracked all the bones in my body. Afterwards I felt like a noodle. 

44. I went bowling with a really good friend of mine. It was a lot of fun.


45. DIY'ing my back-to-school supplies. I love how they turned out.

46. I don't know if you have this in other countries accept The Netherlands, but 'patat speciaal' is delicious. When I was in China, I really wanted to eat this.

47. Blowing soap bubbles, hihi.

48. Watching Camp Takota, a movie with my favorite youtubers in it: Grace Helbig, Hannah Hart, Mamrie Hart and Chester See.

49. Raspberries, one of my favorites.

50. Had a great dinner, after working.


51. I finally finished my drawing of Hazel Grace Lancaster (Shailene Woodley) and Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort) from the movie The Fault In Our Stars. Really happy with the result. If you want to, please check out the drawing at my Instagram and tag Ansel Elgort (@anselelgort or @ansolo_music), John Green (@johngreenwritesbooks) and the official Instagram from the movie (faultinourstarsmovie).

52. Playing MarioKart with my best friend.

53. A polaroid camera! This one is actually from my sister, but she said I could use it for a while.

54. I cooked dinner for the first time in my entire life.


55. My mother cooked noodles for me and this was perfection. 

56. I finally got my bike tires pumped up and biking is so much easier now.

57. And I also sent my hair to Stichting Haarwensen, finally. It was just laying in my room and I wanted to do it earlier, but I always forgot to do it.

58. My mother and I went to Utrecht and we visited family and had dinner with them. Look how much food we had! It was so delicious!

59. I've received a mail from Stichting Haarwensen, saying that my beautiful hair was arrived and that they are really happy with it. 


60. A week ago I ordered this really cute hardcase for my MacBook air at  http://www.miniinthebox.com/. If you are wondering which one I bought, this one is the one I have right now.

My week in pictures | week 34 2014


First week of school: wrapping my books, missing the sun, making homework with my friends, but also seeing my friends again and having fun with them at school. I also cooked dinner for the first time, wow!

Monday
Back to school! On monday, school didn't actually started. We only had to pick up the books for the year. Richard came over to wrap our books at my place. My mother is the wrapping-queen, so she helped us. 
After dinner, Richard and I wanted to watch a movie on my laptop but the Wi-Fi was too slow. Then we decided to watch TV, but it rained really hard and because we have satellite the TV didn't work. So we decided to play Mario Kart on the Wii. 
This picture is really blurry, but there were fireworks close to my house. 

Tuesday
On my way back home from school it rained so hard.
Completely wet after biking in the rain. #dutchproblems

Wednesday
Doing homework with classmates, goes much faster and is so much more fun than doing it on your own. 
I asked Carien, why do you wear your jeans like that. And she said, if I wear it like this, I feel smarter.
On my way home, the bridge opened and the gates closed, because of a boot. Luckily it didn't rain.
Eating curry noodles, with shrimps for dinner. This was so good!

Thursday
Eating enormous grapes after school.
My mother is addicted to Suits and she watches it on my laptop.
My sister owns a Polaroid camera, but she was not using it a lot. And when I asked her if I could borrow it for a while, she said okay. So now I have a Polaroid camera and I love it!

Friday
It was raining again, but I have just four hours of school on Friday. Before it started raining, I was already home.
My mother had to pick some herbs from the garden, but it was still raining so she grabbed an umbrella.
I wanted to eat pasta and I asked my mother if could help her with cooking. She let me do all of the work. 
Yay, pasta! We forgot to buy the tomato sauce. My mother puts that in the pasta with three fresh tomatoes to make it more red. So instead of also using tomato sauce, we only used the three fresh tomatoes. 

Saturday
Eating a hamburger and watching The Big Bang Theory.
I did an ab-workout and it was so hard. My abs were burning afterwards.

Sunday
Passionfruit, so yummy! 
My mother made noodles soup, which was also really yummy!

Movies I've seen lately #2


Hello. As you might know, I went to China a few weeks ago. And in the plane you could watch films and series, which is really cool. I have watched a lot of Marvel-movies, two Dutch movies and some other ones, but today I am going to talk about the Marvel movies -the ones I liked the most-.

Note: This post might contain spoilers of the movies.

Click here to watch the trailer
The Avengers (2012) - This one is definitely my favorite of all Marvel movies I've ever watched, because my favorite (Marvel) superheroes are in it. Like Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and The Hulk, but also Loki as an enemy! These superheroes are going to team up under the leadership of S.H.I.E.L.D. against Loki and his army. The film is all about action and it has also some very funny scenes in it. I have seen this movie twice, by the way. Once with my brother in the cinema two years ago and once in the airplane. 

Click here to watch the trailer
Thor: The Dark World (2013) - Loki is just hilarious, he has to get his own movie. I did not like the movie as much as I normally would do with a Marvel movie. The only good thing, beside Loki's funniness, were the special and visual effects. The movie was really predictable. The storyline: Thor is trying to bring peace back to the nine realms (he lives in another world, because he is a god). Thor returns to Earth, because he is worried about Jane because she fell in a wormhole. Malekith seeks out the Aether and attacks Asgard. Thor is going to team up with Loki and Jane to fight against Malekith.

Click here to watch the trailer
Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) - This one was also kinda boring. I watched it on my flight to China, but fell asleep during the movie. Then on my way back to The Netherlands I watched it again. I am not sure if I didn't like the storyline or something else, but it was.. Yeah, I don't know actually. Steve Rogers (Captain America) who awakes after decades (this happened in Captain America: The First Avenger) finds out that S.H.I.E.L.D. has been subverted by its enemies and they see Steve as a traitor. Also Nick Fury gets killed by the Winter Soldier, who looks familiar to Steve. Captain America, Black Widow and their new friend The Falcon are going to find out what happened to S.H.I.E.L.D..

Click here to watch the trailer
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) - I liked this one a lot and I am very disappointed that Spider-Man was not in The Avengers. He is, I think, my second favorite superhero (Iron Man is first, because he is hilarious). The movie was nice, not really good but also not bad at all. It's about Spider-Man, also known as Peter Parker, who is struggling between the normal life of Peter Parker and the responsibilities of Spider-Man. Only Spider-Man can protect the city of Electro, a really powerful villain who threatens the city.

40 happy days | #100happydays


40 happy days past and you know what that means: it's time for an update. If you don't know what the #100happydays-challenge is, it's basically that you have to post a picture of something that made you happy that day on one of your social media accounts (I use Instagram, @daniquexh98). I posted an update earlier for the first 20 happy days.

21. Lisanne and I went to The Fault In Our Stars in the cinema. In this post you can read what I thought of the movie.


22. A friend of my mother threw a birthday party and here is a picture of my sister, her boyfriend and my best-friend. We danced a lot and it was hilarious.

23. Relaxing day. Sometimes you just need to lay down on your couch or bed and watch series all day.

24. This chocolate (Tony's Chocolonely Chocolate) is heaven! You have to try it!

25. On my way to: China! A ten-hour-flight can be very blegh, but not when you can sit like this and watch a lot of films and series.

26. The food in Chengdu is amazing! We went Chinese fondue'ing and it was so good!

27. I have never had a good bubble tea in The Netherlands, I only had amazing ones in China. And yasss, I had one that day. Milk tea flavor is the best, just sayin'.


28. I went to this place where you can drink tea and this man scared the sh*t out of me. He asked me if I wanted to touch his mask and for some magical reason it changed.

29. This iced tea is also really good.

30. The water in this lake is so gorgeous! The tour guide said it is called the Panda Lake, because sometimes pandas come to drink here.

31. I walked two kilometers of stairs, but it was worth it, because this waterfall is so pretty.


32. Me and my parents went to one side of a lake to the other side by boot. And suddenly I saw this enormous Buddha just sitting between the mountains.


33. Taking funny pictures with my father. :)

34. We went to a panda research centre in Chengdu and I fell in love with these cute animals.

35. Selfie with my cute cousin!

36. Donated 35 cm of my hair to Stichting Haarwensen, a charity who makes wigs for children with cancer. I never did something for charity and I was really proud of myself after getting this haircut.

37. Divergent, oh my god. I don't like to read, but I finished the three books in this serie in ten days.

38. Again, Chinese fondue/hotpot. I just love it.


39. Arrived in the Philippines and we went immediately to the beach!

40. My mother bought this "selfie-stick" for me and am I the only one who think this is genius?
