Oui, merci.

Okay the photo above is from Helsinki but it might as well be from Paris. And it will, in November. Crème brûlée, pain au chocolat and tarte au citron be aware! I'm coming to get you all. And even better, I'll have a superb hostess.

Yo son, I'm a be there

Helsinki Hip Hop Festival

Digging up my rap roots like I used to dig into crates.
Not that I need proof to know that the shit is still great.

Tänä iltana on ikävä Chileä. This evening I miss Chile. Esta noche yo extraño a Chile.

For you!

Grace Jones 15.08.-2009

She threw a fantastic show at Flow festival.
The madame hola hooped for 10 minutes straight, cracked jokes in between songs, changed hats, vests or other accessories after every single song and shaked her g-stringed (tight) ass for us. Bold old lady!

All at sea

On one of these long summer days we went to Suomenlinna with Anniina. We drank rosé cava, bathed in the sea, played Trivial Pursuit in which I showed unbelievable skill to guess right. What a perfect evening it was!


The Flaming Lips organized quite a show in Pitkä Kuuma Kesä festival here in Helsinki in the end of June. Other great shows included those of Immortal Technique, Crystal Castles and Atmosphere among others.

Once I catch you I'll take you there and I whisper secrets to you.

Back for now

Hi. A while ago I decided that I will let this blog go since I've lacked time and inspiration to update it. Then today I met my good friend Anna-Kaisa after a long time and she told me she liked my blog. That made me happy and I decided to give it another shot. I don't know if I'll continue with this but at least right now it seems like a good moment to post some photos. Comments are highly valued and definitely helps me continue this blog project. Take care you all.

1. My new home. Isn't it pretty?
2. In my friend's Tuukka Tammisaari's studio. He's pretty damn good.
3. The park Koffari in Helsinki was very full on a warm summer night.
4. Tokyo City photographed back in 2005.
5. In a Japanese small town of Sumoto where my parents live.

My beautiful 60-year-old mother

I wish I could dig into the family albums to share with you people other beautiful photos of her during her 60 years of interesting and unusual life. She was born on April 19 1949 in Koivistonkylä in her childhood home while the men were on their coffee break from working in the fields. From there on life took her to numerous adventures and places of which Japan became her second home. She raised, along with our dad, 4 daughters between two cultures and countries and guess what, we all turned out pretty ok! My sweet little mom, あなたを愛してる.
