We met in front of Bonus -second hand shop in Tammela. I wanted to show Hui how people sell their clothes etc. There are second hand shops in Korean too, but they are not quite like the same than in Finland. Here you have to rent a table, normally for 6 days at once. Then you can bring almost anything what you want, as long as they can fit in the table and are not forbidden (like pirate products). You give a price for your products and attach the price tag. But often the tags get lost. Like now, when we saw one nice jacket and there weas no price, we couldn’t buy that. The staff doesn’t know the prices of the products, because many different people are selling them and they name the prices.
After Bonus we went to” Fida” and “Kaunotar ja Kulkuri”. They all are second hand shops, but little different, e.g. Fida does charity. We didn’t find anything special to buy now, but if you need winter clothes for cheap price, I recommend you to visit those places!
Then we went to Tullintori. There is one Asian market. It was so great idea to go there! I asked permission for taking photos and the staff allowed us to do that. Hui showed me some of her favorite products and told me how I can cook Korean food. I liked the seaweed soup what Hui cooked us few weeks ago and now I know how to make it and what is the perfect product for that.
We also went to other shops, Seppälä and Tokmanni. There is Seppälä Outlet and it was a nice surprise for us, cause the prices are lower. At Tokmanni they have clearance sale and really cheap things. We searched a long time for the right candy, cause there wasn’t so much left anymore =) I noticed that actually many candy bags are full of salmiakki. And if you don’t like that, it’s difficult to find the right thing to buy. Huge problems 😉
Finally we went to drink some coffee to Klubi. Like Hui said, it doesn’t look like a coffee place from the outside. But when you go in, you’ll be amazed. The atmosphere and decoration is really nice. While drinking coffee Hui showed me her finnish homework’s and I explained her few things. I’m not the best person to teach finnish, maybe cause the things are obvious for me and I cannot explain why something is like that, cause it just is. For example, in english you say “This is coffee” and “I drink coffee”. But in finnish you say “ Tämä on kahvi” and “Minä juon kahvia”. That is something which might be difficult to understand and even to explain.
There was one band doing their sound check for evenings gig. It was getting to be too loud and we had drunk our coffee, so it was time to leave home. During these couple of hours we visited many places and had really nice time together =)
