How are you all doing? Jade had her last day of work yesterday and Elvi is still working hard for school! We found some old pictures from us at school, in between classes, and looking at these pictures, do feel a little nostalgia.. With us following such different classes next year, things just won’t be the same, which is sad but also nice because we are moving forward, and change can be good too. Anyway, we just thought it would be nice to share some pictures that have the both of us in them! The quality is not too good, but they are nice anyway. ^^
Love, TNT! (We should start writing this without the comma, as in commanding you all to LOVE TALL AND TINY, who knows it might just work)
ps: look at Jade’s long hair, so different…
I love my pink hair and I love it even more when it’s braided! Unfortunately I’m not able to make all these braids by myself (for instance the ‘crown braid’ you see below, my mum made it) and normally I don’t have enough time in the morning to braid my hair. But I want to braid my hair more often and now that I have vacation I should be able to do that! Here are my most favorite braids which I’m going to use for inspiration!
Remember last Thursday when we got all emotional about our last day of school? Well, this picture was taken right after our last class. Don’t we look like almost-graduating sinologists?
No, okay, you’re right, we don’t. Maybe if we’d wear glasses and elbow patches…
Nope, still not working. But who cares? We look cool! And kind of Chinese, since Jade is doing the peace thing.
Last week we also let our good friend Cécile braid our hair together, it’s like all kinds of chocolate or different milkshake flavors mixed together.
Darn now we’re hungry.
We had our first exam today! It was our most important Chinese exam, which mostly contains grammar and vocabulary exercises, and which basically is our theoretical exam. Tomorrow and Thursday we still have to do our practical Chinese exams. Then, two weeks later we have to do some other exams like Chinese literature, classical Chinese etc. It’s tough, but on the other hand, we have the summer ahead of us now. At least, we sure hope we do! We read in the newspaper today, that Western Europe is going to have the worst summer since 1816, that’s almost 200 years ago! Also, since our last summer kind of sucked (due to resit exams and working) we were really hoping to catch up on some summer… So please oh please let the weather be good, or we might just sink into a deep state of some kind of.. — wait let’s not think about the possible depressing consequences, let’s just hope it’ll be okay!!
Check out this picture from a while ago. See mister weather? That’s the kind of weather we like.

We took these pictures a couple of days ago but forgot to post them. Lai-Yan braided Elvi’s hair and it looks amazing! It is just so perfect, the way it is braided with all the colors… And check out Jade’s little red riding hood coat, isn’t it awesome? It was super rainy that day, so she was very happy. Who doesn’t want a coat like this on a rainy day?
Also, we’ve been working very hard in the library the past couple of days, and while doing that, Lai-Yan can’t help herself. She had to braid! So when we leave the library afterwards, our hair always looks amazing, haha!
Another made-in-the-library braid :
And remember this updo? Also awesome… ^^
Have a lovely weekend, and wish us luck with studying for the finals!
First of all, happy mother’s day to all mums!
Elvi is wearing an old blouse which here mum used to wear when she was her age! Thanks mum!
We really enjoyed the weather last week, but it’s getting colder again! It’s raining and that’s actually not such a bad thing, as we have to study a lot this week! Exams are coming up in two weeks and before they start we have to finish all our assignments. It’s going to be a pretty stressful period, because we’re going to have a lot of exams in a short period, but after that: VACATION!!

We took another outfit picture, this time in front of this amazing horse statue! It’s next to our school and it’s quite impressive really, so dynamic! We both looked simple in white, yet we always find a way to make our outfits special. For example: the pink shoes, pink sunglasses and yes: pink hair! Elvi is rocking the great girly-dress-with-sneakers combination and Jade is wearing pants. Doesn’t sound too special, but it is, since she hardly ever does. She’s been wearing pants for three days in a row now, what it happening to the universe?!
We wish you a lovely Thursday! (Yes, we have a day off today because of the Ascension of Jesus, yay!)
