candles

norwegians looooove their candles. lovelovelove. no, LOVELOVELOVE. go to any norwegian house and you’ll find candles everywhere. dinners are very often candle-lit.

i’m not sure what the reasons behind this love affair with candles are. is it because the yellow glows give a warm feeling that fight against the cold days? is it because they’re cheaper than electricity? or just because they’re cosy? i don’t know. but as i look around our little flat, i can see candles all over the place.

the dining area:


the one on the left was a house-warming gift. the one hanging on the ceiling was a christmas pressie from two years ago.

the living room and kitchen:

both were christmas pressies from last year.

we also have tealight holders all over the house. and to think that i came from a place where we only take out the candles for birthday cake or for when the electricity goes out…

    bahh. lilin! hahahaha. *sudah lama se nda pake lilin.

    we cece, we don’t use candles anymore di sini. kalau mati lampu ya nyalakan genset. ato kalo nda ada genset, ya gelap-gelapan mi. apa daya? dari pada kebakaran. *parno kebakaran. hihi

    io di indo di rumah pake lampu yg pake batere kl mati lampu. mmg di indo takut sekali kebakaran. rumahnya besar2 soalnya jd susah dijagai satu2 lilinnya dan nda ada alarm kebakaran di rumah.

    jaman dahulu kala waktu masih sering pake lilin, paling suka kalo menyala mi lampu, tiup lilin biar merasa ulang tahun.
