A day with Yasco (RM-sisters)

On Friday we went to hang out to the city with Yasco and Joanna. Yasco wanted to see the centrum and buy some souveniers for her friends and family, so we showed her some places. After shopping a while we got so hungry that we had to have some ice cream. So we went to our workplace, Valion baari  Kamppi, to enjoy Banana Split's.


In the evening Yasco had a waacking workshop at Aleksanterin teatteri. The class was full and everyone had a great waacking vibe. She taught a lot of new stuff and techniques. Her technique is quite difficult at first but when you get the arms right the style looks clean and funky. There are so many different ways to do the same basic waacking arm. Everyone has their own way of doing it, so it can be quite confusing in different workshops because you have to learn a new way everytime. But we advise you to study every style and choose the one that suits you best. Yasco was playing this disco funk mixtape, and in the middle of the class our favourite song "somebody should have told me.." from Cissy Houston came up. Haha and everyone of our Osaka trip crew started to laugh! Once again what a terrible catcy tone. Big thanks to SADE festival for organizing this great workshop!

Girls night not out

Bujaa!
It's -19 c outside and hell no we ain't gonna freeze our asses, so we decided to get underwear wasted at our place with bgirl Tarzan. There's nothing better than laughing, gossiping and hanging out with good friends. We've heard Tayas stories million times, but it's still so hilarious.
Boom boom congrats to our girl Rambo number 5# for finally turning 18!! Enjoy your special day! Tomorrow we'll party party!

Here's some crazy moves from bgirl Tflow and bgirl A.T from Flow Mo.


And here's bgirl Ramona with AT, against our boy Thumba.

Shiatsu, shiatsu!

Our friend Jeniwai studies shiatsu and she makes student treatments. I got a treatment on Wednesday. It was heavenly! The treatments have been a great help for my back problems. As a dancer I find it hard to keep my muscle balance, because I never use the body equally with both sides (eventhoug I try!). And it's nice to have some time for myself, relax and releaf some stress.

Shiatsu can be a great help for other problems too, for more info and bookings e-mail to jenni.tuunainen@gmail.com.

And congrats to Peetu Piiroinen for the Vancouver half pipe silver medal!

Valentine's day

I practised my "being a good wife" skills for the future, and baked some mocha chocolate cake for our Valentine's day Hotel Hilton/Moreno/Poikela brunch. Ou yeah, I will make my husband very happy in the future!

Although the day is a cheesy American tradition, it's good to remember and reminisce the ones that really matter in your life. People have to do it more often! Make love, not war.

There are plenty of good songs for this moment, but I picked this. This one is for you, you know who you are.

Sleepless in Helsinki,
