– One slice of ontbijtkoek
– Two slices of whole-wheat bread with dark chocolate sprinkles
– Two slices of whole-wheat bread with ham, low-fat cheese and lettuce
– One muffin with chocolate filling, bought at McDonalds
– One taro mochi. I got this one from my Chinese friend who loves mochi. The only kind of mochi I had eaten before was the one filled with red bean paste, but I have to admit that this one filled with taro tastes even better!
– Salted popcorn. I shared a bowl filled with popcorn with a bunch of my Hindustan friends while we were watching the Bollywood movie ‘Golmaal returns’, because we wanted to celebrate Holi together, which is a religious Hindu fest. I’m actually a catholic, but because my roots still lies in India it’s enough reason for me to celebrate Holi too. I’m sure Indian people will think differently about it, but hey, to me it’s still about my culture! Even if my religion isn’t Hinduism.
When celebrating this fest, you’re actually supposed to throw colored powder on each other, but because of circumstances we decided to celebrate it in a more modest way.
For my Dutch readers: You can watch here a short informational video about Holi in case you’re interested. For my non-Dutch readers: There must be other informational video’s on Youtube, so do search for it if you’re interested about Holi, I don’t think it would be very hard to find.
