I’ve been shopping a lot lately. Because I am absolutely terrified of winter time in Germany, I’ve been stocking up on lots of sweaters, jeans, jackets (more jackets than I actually need), boots and socks, the really cute thick kind. My mom and I have also made a checklist of all the things I need to buy before leaving Thailand. We’ve hit tons of shopping malls the last few days.

The other day I was starving after having walked around for hours and carrying a huge amount of shopping bags, I walked past a Cinnabon store. 

Oh man. Doesn’t the smell of freshly baked cinnamon rolls aka the one that tortures hungry people in shopping malls, wafting all around you makes you wanna drop everything immediately and stuff one in your mouth?

Oats have a great amount of protein, fiber, minerals and vitamins. Having oats for breakfast will keep you feeling full and satisfied until lunch. It really did the trick for me on school mornings. I would have a huge bowl of oatmeal with my favorite fruits for breakfast very often; that way my stomach wouldn’t make loud (ugly) noises in class. 

I have a bowl oatmeal really often in winter in Thailand. Now here’s a thing about me, I get cold really easily. Winter in Thailand doesn’t get cooler than 15 degrees Celsius and I already feel like freezing. I wear about 1000 layers of clothing while all my friends walk around in a t-shirt.

How am I going to survive in Germany?

I am 100% counting on warm oatmeal and a cup of tea.  Continue reading
