Pasta La Vista - Second evening at Helsinki


We didn't spend that much time at the flea-market on the second morning so when we took the bus to the city it was only 9 o'clock. Stores were empty, like they were open for just 2 of us. And we took advantage of that, spending about 2h at the fitting rooms.
Most of the time was spent at this one particular store, where all the prices were brought down to 1-2 euros. We emptied the store because we just couldn't choose what to buy.
(By accident) we also purchased matching "princess blouses" and since by that time we had matching babypink glittery blouses with lace and our fridge was filled with pink food, we decided to have a "Pink Picnic".
Our throwaway grill was used to barbeque exactly 2 marshmallows and by the end out our picnic we both had sugar poisonings. We actually had to go home and rest before heading out again.
Since we had only eaten sweets the whole day, we decided to drive to the city and eat a healthy meal at some restaurant so we could go on with our plans. We narrowed the choices down to 2- Pasta la Vista and Wrong Noodle Bar. None of them sounded delicious so we just replaced that meal with shopping.
Kirbuturul meil teise päeva hommikul kaua aega ei kulunud ning kui linna poole sõitsime oli kell alles kuskil 9. Poed oleks olnud nagu ainult meile avatud ja me kasutasime seda väga ära. Proovikabiinides veetsime me v ä h e m a l t 2 tundi. Kõige kauem läks meil ühes poes, mille nime ma parem ei nimetaks, kus proovisime kaupa, mis oli alla hinnatud ühele, kahele eurole ja mille üle me alguses meeltesegaduses (ning poe "staatust" arvestades) kõvasti naersime kuid hiljem enamus asju endale soetasime. Suutsime ka (by accident) osta ühesugused "printsessi pluusid" ning kuna meil olid selleks ajaks juba olemas matchivad heleroosad/sädelevad/pitsiga pluusid ning kapp oli täis roosasid toite otsustasime pidada "Roosa Pikniku".
Meie ühekordne grill leidis kasutust täpselt kahe vahukommi grillimisel ja pikniku lõpuks olime saanud suhkrumürgituse ning pidime kodus vahepeal puhkama enne välja minekut.
Kuna me olime terve päeva jooksul ainult magusaid asju söönud, otsustasime sõita linna ja mingis söögikohas kiiresti kõhud täis süüa et siis edasi liikuda. Valikus oli restoran Pasta La Vista ning Wrong Noodle Bar. Kumbki ei olnud eriti kutsuv ning otsustasime söögikorra asendada shoppamisega.
