LADY GAGA concert

6th October was Lady Gaga's concert in Barcelona

We arrived soon but by then the line was huge!!!!! People were waiting days before
 But it wasn't a problem because we had reserved seating ^-^

Is the second time I saw her.
 This time I was fascinated with the show too, but it is a new?
She is always amazing and no one expect less. 
I went with a friend and we had a good time.
 Dancing the songs and enjoying the nice atmosphere. 
I don't have better pics because concert's stuff didn't let me entry 
to Palau Sant Jordi with my camera, because they consider my camera
 like a professional one... anyway I took one using my phone (haha)

Party is synonymous of food. 
As more I know about different culture I see clearer that all people 
use to celebrate festivities eating something special. 
We do it too. These small and cute cakes are typical on Castanyada
the Catalonia festivity celebrated on 1st November 
(our particular Halloween but totally different)

The sweets are called "panellets"

I bought the sweets because I wanted my Chinese exchange friends taste it
My favourite one is made with pine kernel and, 
together with almond ingredient, is the most popular and typical. 

Well, the photo could be better but I ate almost all the sweets of the box. Sorry~~ haha

We don't use to celebrate Halloween although is known worldwide but 31th October,
 when I arrived to university (asleep and shivering due the cold weather), I get a surprise!
For the first time the hall was decorated with Halloween motifs. 
Is an original idea but despite the peculiar atmosphere we had class. 

We classes ended Sarah and I posed to took a photo. 
That day I felt bad T.T but I tried to smile

XVIII Saló del Manga

 Today I want to talk about the most important event in Barcelona related with manga.
This year it was celebrated in "Fira de Barcelona" for first time.
 The convention center where the event was celebrated is bigger than old one.  
Moreover the location is better because is in the center of Barcelona (near Plaza Espanya). 
The years before we had to go to another city which I don't like. 

Me, Ivette, Sarah and Ida

When we arrived there was much of a line... 
but luckily a friend of mine (next to me in the photo) let us jump the line (n.n' haha)
So, we could enter in few minutes... but I know some people queued for over 2 hours.
Every year a lot of people assist but this year had more visitors than ever. 
(I read in newspaper the audience was around 112 000 people). 

Sarah and I ^-^ having fun taking photos ↑↓

The outfit I chose was inspired in autumn: maroon and different shades of brown

This year the event focused on Japanese gastronomy. For this reason, there were a lot of 
Japanese food to taste. Buy food was the first thing we did when we were inside.
We tasted rolled Japanese  crepe because is the first time in Barcelona we could eat it.
Few days ago the first restaurant specialised on  these kind of crepes opened up. 
I haven't tasted original rolled Japanese crepe but some people think that are better than these. Maybe is too soon to judge the new restaurant and need more experience. 

Later I bought this nikuman. What is a nikuman? Is a Japanese food made from flour and pork meat inside or other ingredients.  

I love it!!! ♥♥♥ It make me remember Chinese xiaolongbao

We decided eat inside but it was impossible! The problem: too many people... 
Finally we eat at our favourite Japanese restaurant. 

Look the tuna maki *-*

We went back but I was really tired. Moreover this year I found the event different. Not because the new place but because I feel the event is always the same... 
We need something special for the next year! 
Maybe a famous guest would awake our interest again

 I only bought 4 things but I will show you next time!

Heart Burger

At the end of this summer, I found a special restaurant in Barcelona. 
My sister and I decided go there to taste the hamburgers. 
Yes, burgers... Heart Burgers
The form is perfect but not only the form, the burgers taste really nice :) 

You can choose the type of bread and there are several type of burgers in the menu. 
Moreover you can choose salad or fried potatoes to complete the dish. 

Maybe the most important thing is that the ingredients 
are as more natural as possible and ecological.

See the burger I tasted: 

It is called Sweet Fish and the main ingredient is grilled tuna. 
Other ingredients are: mango, cucumber, tomato, avocado and coriander. 

Look healthy, isn't? To tell you the true I decided go to this restaurant because the different concept about burgers and the importance of our native products.

Visit the web for more information (here)
^^ I recommend it and isn't expensive 

Then we walk trough Paseo de Gracia. I saw the beautiful 
Louis Vuitton showcase designed by the Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama
I remembered my travel to Madrid last summer because
 I could enjoy one exposition of her. 

I think the showcase is still decorated. 

Well, I want upload new entries more often but I don't have time enough 
(or sometimes I am lazy...)
I have a lot of things to show. I hope you are looking forward to read new entries. 

Have a nice weekend!
