Living abroad has its perks, and also its drawbacks, ie no Irish chocolate and no beloved Tayto sandwiches. The first few months I moved away there was not much other than family that I missed, but as the months flew by, I noticed myself craving more and more Irish things..
Where do I start with the cheese toastie fiasco..
For one, not one person in North America knows what a cheese toastie actually is. They refer to them as grilled cheese and nothing else. If you accidentally ask for a cheese toastie, you just get blank stares and confused faces.
Why not just make your own toastie you ask.. Well that’s all well and good until you discover that a block of mediocre cheese retails at $8. That being low end cheese that tastes like literal plastic and doesn’t even melt the same as in Ireland. So making a cheese toastie proves seriously difficult and costs more than eating brunch at a nice restaurant! And even if you take the painful leap and purchase the most expensive cheese ever, your sandwich will still taste awful due to the bread having heaps of sugar and tasting like a cake and not bread.
You go shopping, you find a nice shirt for $40, you get to the register, money in hand, and it’s actually $44.89. Heartbreaking stuff. You would think I would have gotten used to this by now, but every time I seem to forget until the cashier breaks the news I owe more than I budgeted..
This is the same in restaurants, they charge you guest service charge (gst) and then expect you to tip 20%+ on top. Then get super snappy if they get anything less. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for tipping, but the fact that there is a formula and a particular way they expect you to tip is annoying to say the least. You’ll never know how much you miss paying what’s on the price tag until you leave Ireland.
Irish complain about the weather on a daily basis, yes, but can we at least be thankful that the weather is actually predictable and fairly tame? Living in North America is like living on another planet. There is constant fear of hurricanes, volcanoes erupting and the never ending scare of ‘The Big One’ finally hitting… If you are unfamiliar with ‘The Big One’, there is enough information on Google to scare someone into never leaving Ireland. To sum up, It’s essentially a death assuring earthquake expected from the San Andreas Fault in the coming months. It’s rarely talked about, but the subtle hints left around the City are a constant reminder.. Even in my apartment building there are strict instructions on how to act during earthquakes, which I have studied religiously.
Yes. You read that correctly. Cordial/ diluted drinks are barely a thing. I don’t have much to say other than one word. Devastating.
A Decent Chinese
Finding a good Chinese takeaway posed difficult, after trying 20+ places we finally found one that has a nice chilli chicken alternative. As soon as I get home I plan to buy out a Chinese takeaway for a week to cater to any spice bag needs I may have.
Talking about all of these thing’s are enough to make me book a flight home… Which I will do next year if ‘The Big One’ doesn’t get to me first.
No plans this weekend? Don’t worry, we got you covered.. Get your PJ’s on, a duvet, order a chinese and get ready to feel the Christmas magic with these movies..
Since it’s still November and we’re only getting over Halloween, let’s start it off slow shall we?
Die Hard is mainly an action movie meaning it can be enjoyed year round, but it also the hints and suggestions of Christmas, leaving you with subtle excitement guaranteed to make you get up and go searching for that tangled ball of Christmas lights in your attic…
Enjoyable, warm and lovable Christmas that really gets you in the loving happy romantic Christmas mood. Definitely a must watch for couples as opposed to
A nice movie to ease yourself into the Christmas spirit. The snow and cosy fireplace scenes get you super excited for those cold winter nights in, and this movie definitely deserves some wine and take-out while curled up on the sofa. This is probably top of my list this year.
Now onto the hardcore Christmas movies…
Best. Movie.Ever. Need I say more?
The Santa Clause.
Heart-warming family movie that tugs at the old heart strings. I know most of you like myself have a soft spot for this brilliant movie. The best part is that it has sequels that definitely do not disappoint!
This hilarious and charming movie is perfect for the week leading up to Christmas, it’s light, it’s funny, and you can watch it more that 20 times and still love it! Definitely one of my favorites.
The Grinch, Trading Places, Edward Scissorhands, It’s A Wonderful Life, The Nightmare Before Christmas.
What are your go-to Christmas movies?
“How is it November?” you ask. Well I don’t know either, but these past few months have snuck by at an alarming and now it’s one month until December and I still have not completed any of my 2016 New Years resolutions.
If your like me, then you love movies. I worked in a movie theatre for most of my teenage years where I developed an unhealthy obsession with the latest movie releases. BUT the absolute worst thing you can do is pay €50 for a movie ticket and a small popcorn only to sit for 2 hours watching a terrible movie. Well, do not worry as I have taken it upon myself to see the latest releases this November and can safely tell you I have not encountered a complete flop of a movie, yet.
Take a gander of the list below for plot description’s and rating’s, hopefully saving yourself from sitting through another disastrous movie such as the 2015 monstrosity that was Fantastic Four…(low blow, I know, but what were they thinking?).
Personally, I found this to be a truly exciting watch, the plot kept me hooked and second guessing everything from the second it started.
The story follows an autistic accountant, Ben Affleck who seems like he has a few secrets to hide. From the get-go we discover he is not just any ordinary accountant, he is hyper intelligent and works in unique ways.
The trailer definitely gives an entirely different vibe that the movie itself, the first time I saw the trailer I had absolutely zero interest in seeing it, but one rainy Sunday when there was no other cinema options, I opted for what I thought would be a dark drama about a man struggling with autism, turned out to be a thriller, a comedy, a drama and an action packed emotional rollercoaster with more twists and turns you can even imagine!
Affleck, in my opinion, will definitely get a fair few nominations at awards season with this performance.

Before I get into Inferno, just know that I am Tom Hank’s number 1 fan, and in my opinion he can do no wrong so this may be slightly bias…
I had several people warn me about Inferno being a terrible flop of a movie and not to bother seeing it. But, I did anyway as like I have previously stated, I am an avid Tom Hank’s worshipper.
SO, 15 minutes into this movie and I get the mother of all headaches.. The camera tricks they use are horrible, they are trying to portray a character with a headache while simultaneously giving the audience a migraine with the out-of-focus shots and blurry frames, it’s a nightmare.. and I one point I even closed my eyes to try stop the strain on my poor eyeballs.. This terrible choice in camera focus ruined the first 30 minutes of the movie and made me angry.. But after that hiccup all was fine.
The DaVinci code was an excellent movie, and don’t let anyone tell you any different. Its intricate, it pulls you in and it makes you feel super smart and like you majored in symbology, and THAT’S what people love, audiences love to follow complicated storylines and solve clues, it’s fun and educational (even if it is fictional), but for some reason, Inferno lost all of the magic that The Da Vinci code had. It is without a doubt a well thought out and enjoyable movie, but when comparing to the original, it falls flat.
There is a lack of excitement and is actually quite predictable, which is a major pet peeve of mine.
To sum up, it is not the worst thing I have ever seen, it had an interesting plot, likeable characters, and Tom Hanks was of course as fabulous as ever!
….Sigh. Typical action packed thriller starring The Cruiser (Tom Cruise) with a slightly more emotional storyline than usual.
See it, don’t see it.. You won’t miss much.
What I am most excited to see this month is Hacksaw Ridge, starring ex Spider-Man (the better Spider-Man if you ask me) Andrew Garfield.
It’s been a long while since a good war movie has been released, and I am hopeful this movie will meet my expectations.
The story follows a young soldier who refuses to carry a weapon into war, but instead wishes to help the injured. Sounds emotional and exciting at the same time so count me in!
