- My name is Elvira Lindell
I'm a Finnish expat living in Singapore. I've lived in Hong Kong(1997-2001), Finland(2001-2006), as well as China(2006-2010)and I've basically been living abroad my entire life.
I don't mind the traveling, in fact, I quite like having new experiences and I will probably continue moving around the world when I've branched out on my own.

Last Saturday was ‘Lilla Jul’, a Finnish tradition which is similar to Christmas though on a smaller scale. We decorated some gingerbread cookies (Store bought, as you can’t purchase any dough in Singapore) with silver balls and sugar icing. True … Continue reading
