A Hong Kong-British Finn & Dutch ex-resident speaking Swedish living in Brazil. Hi. Or terve.

Oioi! A few years ago I remember my Facebook profile containing the line “I’m a Hong Kong-British Swedish speaking Finnish guy in The Netherlands. I didn’t confuse you, did I?”.

When I start blogging, I tend to do it way too carefully and spending way too much time on it, so that’s why you don’t see updates very often, and then a massive one suddenly. I keep thinking I blog often enough, but actually I just blog once a month or less.
