First snow in Antwerpen!! :)

Hey my friends,

This is cool here, we had first snow today in Antwerpen, though it was pretty scary how this weather touched the traffic. As here almost noone doesnt have winter gears for the car then the traffic was slow, very slow, full of traffic jams and so on. Yeah, its not compulsory to have a winter gears here. I included also few pictures taken from home window :) Cool, feels like home in Estonia ;)










Last Saturday we went to ski :) .. SnowWorld Landgraaf in Holland. Its a inside ski area and a nice place, though some time ago we went to Germany to Alpincenter Bottrop and i must say i liked there more. Anyhow, in Landgraaf it was cold and the pictures will show it, my nose is red. See more pictures HERE :)
Unfortunately, for one our friend Stefanie it didnt end so good. She broke her leg :( .. she will be fine soon and will run around in summer as nothing happened, im sure :) But we all wish her "Veel Beterschap!!" :)

About Christmas, no so much plans, staying at home and enjoying it together with Guy :)

I wish you a great holidays :))

Black Berry event in Brussels

Hey friends,

Just a small note and few pictures :) in Coudenberg Museum.

Yesterday was 1 month anniversary of our wedding. Ohh can you imagine ;) ...We didnt really celebrate it but as there was a Black Berry event (advertisement of wonderful Black Berry) then we did celebrated it a bit in very nice way :)
This all event was where the Coudenberg Museum is in Brussels and beside the main thing ... interesting presentation, comedian show and dinner afterwards :) we visited and had a guided tour in the museum. I put also a link above of this museum.
They used beside French and Dutch language also English which helped a lot of course though my Dutch getting also better and better, at least i understood also some of this part ;) lol

Otherwise everything is very good here, still very very happy. I keep training hard and going to school for dutch language course.
Guy already started to speak with me Flemisch, so i better learn it quicker LOL... also i send text messages (with Black Berry of course ;)) in Flemisch and it gives also some practise :)

But oke, i should finish this, as it had to be a small note ;) ...tomorrow i hope to have some free time and try to upload some new videos also. :)

Till then, my best regards to all :)

Hey all,

Just got some pictures from my last contest in Belgium.
See this LINK

Oh yeah, my birthday present from Guy was also fantastic.
After we left Bill's Gym, we relaxed all afternoon and evening in SPA ('t Minaral). Meaning lots of different saunas, swimming pools, dinner and etc :) Thx Guy, my love. :)

Then i wanted for Estonians to say that.. and i will continue in Estonian ;)

28. nov toimub üks kena üritus Sparta Spordiklubis, kus valitakse Trennitäht. Kahjuks ma ise sinna minna ei saa, aga Eestis elavale seltskonnale on see lähemal ja soovitan soojalt kuna see on ülivõimas motivaator edasisteks treeninguteks :) Lähem info on SIIN. Ootan siis Pärnu rahva... eelkõige Kimberi Klubi liikmete osavõttu!! :)

Enjoy your weekend and God Bless you!!
Your Gerbel :)

Flemisch language course 1.1 is finished :)

Hello,

I thought to give you just a small note about the results of my flemisch language exam. It was STANAG 1.1. Ik ben geslaagd. It means i passed and i got 110 points from 120 possible. Not bad, though i could have done better LOL. Need to study more :)

Next course 1.2 starts on 14 Nov and lasts till the end of January, I wish after that i can already use the language more often as i should have then more vocabulary ;) Till now i still use a little sayings and sentences only in my daily bases. Should use it more often but it seems so slow when i start to talk that i loose my patient ;) LOL

So we had a small morning party at school today and some of the pictures :)
On a group photo you will find our teacher, Johan (see the smallest guy in the middle), actually Johan is something 1.90cm tall guy.. LOL
There are 2 pictures where you can see girls in our class .. nice haaa :) ... and there are also a picture of me and Lesley from UK. She was good, she got 118 points from 120.. congratulations and of course to all students - proficiat! :)


Happy Halloween to my all classmates and blog readers and all my friends and family :)

With love,
Gerbel

Wedding

Hello my dear friends,

Now im married woman, Gerbel Mikk-Poortmans. Who still doesnt know, on 17 of October i got married with lovely belgian guy, Guy Poortmans, in Wilrijk-Antwerpen, Belgium. In Estonian magazine "Kroonika" there is an article about us, how we met ;) ..though it is in Estonian. To make the story short ;) ..we met online and we knew that we should be together already before we first met in real life, meeting was just a confirmation of our feelings :) Lovely! :) A hint, soon there will be also wedding picture in Kroonika ;)Now, after 5 month knowing each other, we are married. Seems like a fairy tale.

The wedding was very lovely in one small castle, as simple as it could be. On 17th my day started already 0630am, did my make-up and went to hair dresser. Wedding was at 10.45 am and followed by lunch-dinner reception in near by restaurant "Den Bourgondier" with our witnesses, Guy's parents and relatives. Unfortunatly, my best friend Aire couldnt come to wedding but surely we will celebrate it with her and Co ;) in the future. Otherwise we celebrated it with my mom and few other friends when we were in Estonia for my contest in the beginning of October.
So it was nice cozy wedding with 15 adults and 2 kids (Peggy's (Guy sister) 2 kids). The food was wonderful and of course cava, wine as well ;) and therefore on behalf of me and Guy and all the quests i would like to thank our cook and all the staff for giving us a such a great day :)

We finished there around 1730 and lets say the party didnt finished with that ;) .. we took a small nap at home and went to one fishing club party ;) .. Guy's brother is a member there and as we didnt really have any other plans for that evening, then we went there, listened an old music what DJ put together, danced and had fun :) ...it was a nice party.

Next day was sort of lazy as you all can imagine, long day and long evening behind. We had only one thing we had to take care of and it was to pay a bill for the restaurant. Uhhhhh, yes, it was more then we planned but as we and everybody else had a great food and drinks then it was worth it ;) .. though now we need to keep us a bit tight with spending for some time ;) .. ohh well.. we are happy as never before and thats what counts and is important :)

Oke.. it was a short overview about the wedding. I put 2 pictures here when we still were at home ;) ...all the rest, i mean, the gallery i will put up as soon as we will do some selection from the pictures what our photographers did. Thanks to Kurt (Peggy's husband) and Ivo (Guy's uncle) we have about 7-800 pictures to make a selection ;)

Thank you all present and being with us on this wonderful day. Bedankt allemaal! :)

Enjoy and i will write soon again. I know i havent done so much updating in my website but all the contest, wedding and now another contest preparation takes its time. Hope to be better after all these important events ;)

My best love and lots of luck to all of you,
Still the same happy Gerbel ;)

Training with a Pro! ..and trip to Vlissingen, Holland

Hello my dear friends,

I had a great weekend. Especially on 22 Aug, Saturday :)

First i had a great chance to do training with a legendary bodybuilder, Bill Richardson (in his gym in Antwerpen)! Bill Richardson is a UK bodybuilder who won the Mr. Universe (amateur) competition in 1980. See some links and pictures of his career.

It was amazing experience :) i can tell you! ;)











Then there was a "Muscle Beach"
in Vlissingen, the Netherlands
and afternoon time we enjoyed
the beach with lots of muscular
men and women ;)
LOL

Here is one Dutch Pro on the
picture Aimée Molleman,
and she was a big girl .. wow ;) ...
Here are more pictures of the event: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gert_ten_thije/page3/

..and FORUM
..and more pictures FORUM2

Its sad i didnt arrived in Vlissingen at 1500hrs, then for sure i would have compete with these girls ;) .. would have been cool. Though, i had great training with Bill before and hard one, i still feel my legs, that i have two of them ;) lol

Also i had a short photoshoot with a professional photografer Gert Ten Thije ;) in the Vlissingen mole. See the pictures HERE

And of course we walked in Vlissingen and here are few more pictures :)























Oke.. i will finish here and start to think of lunch ;)

Enjoy the hot summer and sunny, hot hot weather ;) ... at least we have in Belgium record temperatures .. 30-38C :)

My best regards to all of you!!
Always your Gerbel
