So yes, I have finally told my parents I'm "getting" married (actually I have been secretly married for almost 2 years now).
(Hopefully they won't check the carvings in my wedding ring)
I sent a text message about it, they were quite shocked and they didn't answer anything the whole day. (I texted my little brother asking if they even got the message, my brother answered 'yes, mom is very pleased' (being ironical) ) The next day my dad called me, asking if I'm really sure about this, but in the end they accepted it and they even plan to join the wedding.
We will leave to China in the end of May and stay for about 4 months. I'm applying for a 3-month internship through CIMO (an organisation for international mobility and cooperation) but haven't got a place yet. If I can't find an internship, I will write my thesis in Shanghai and do my internship in Finland next spring.
(I kind of hope I won't get an internship, because while doing a thesis I would be more free to travel around China and study the language haha) We will propably visit Beijing and go to Thailand for our honeymoon.
I will try to report more of our plans soon.
This blog has become more of a travelling blog it seems, I went to London with my big brother's girlfriend and their friends. Funny thing is that my brother had to cancel his trip.. so I didn't know anyone except my brother's girlfriend. But I had a very good time with them anyway! Here' a few photos from London..

Not much sightseeing.. We "saved" most of the attractions for the next time, and focused on shopping and pub crawling on this trip.
