    Oh I see, planning on checking out the 2 supermarkets you mentioned previously. Is the logo above the arabic halal word? The oval shape

    I am not sure as the logo is so small but under of that logo is Arabic word "halal".

    Re: Finland: Northern Lights

    When you go to buy food, with products have list of ingredients by Finnish and Swedish (as they are official languages in here) but also they may be by English. If there isn´t list by English, here is some information you should notice:

    Gelatin is by Finnish as liivate. It´s mostly made by pork in Finland.

    If some food includes animal fats, producers don´t have to tell from which animal it comes so it also can be from pork (eläinrasva or eläinrasvat by Finnish).

    Pigged parts of the pork are not always referred to as the word "sika" or "sianliha" or "porsas" or "porsaanliha" (sika = pig, porsas = piglet, pork). Therefore, it may be good to know what names are used. They include for example: kassler, kotletti, kinkku, potka. Also "ihra", "silava", "läski" and "kamara" are normally from pork.

    If in some product has alcohol as ingredient, then there has to be information about it. In some cases there also may be just information as what kind of alcohol there is like punaviini, konjakki, arrakki, punssi etc.

    Alcohol can sometimes be used in small quantities to emphasize, for example, certain flavoring substances before they are added to the food without it being reported in the list of ingredients.

    Same also if there is blood, there has to be information about it (veri by Finnish, also sometimes "sianveri" or "sianverta" = pork blood).

    About E codes, there are some Finnish food producers whose have informed they use mostly herbal additives in their products (Fazer, Valio, Ingman). Also, if you for example like ice cream, then ice creams from those companies should to be halal.

    Hopely that helped you a little.

    Re: Finland: Northern Lights

    You are welcome!

    Notice the weather forecasts:

    Tampere: http://en.ilmatieteenlaitos.fi/weather/tampere

    Remember, the weather is the most common and popular matter of talking in Finland. If you meet new person and start conversation with mention something about weather like "It has been quite chilly here" or "I like when it´s snowing/raining/shining", people feel they can continue talking easily. That´s maybe because everyone can have some neutral opinion about the weather. Finnish people are quite shy when they meet new people and it´s hard to find something sensible to say. Plus they may afraid their English isn´t good and you laugh to their language.

    Re: Finland: Northern Lights

    Unfortunately dark comes here so soon that you might see only darkness during the travel. There might not be much snow in Helsinki region but in Tampere - yep some.

    You can check weather in the main roads (this goes to Tampere region): http://www.kelikamerat.info/kelikamerat-tampere

    Re: Finland: Northern Lights

    As a person who never experienced snow before and has summer all year round at hometown, it was a very pleasant change. The first feeling of cold weather i got was when i got down the flight and made the short walk to the airport.

    The feeling was like having mentos and water in your mouth 24/7 kind of feeling.

    Also the smoke coming out of the mouth is so cool. I met another stydent from hungary and she said its very normal. But so many first experiences for me. Alhamdulillah

    Subsequently my fingers and ears started to freeze. Haha. I would take this over the hot weather im accustomed to. I see others not wearing gloves and ear muffs, theyre used to it i guess. But i still need it

    Re: Finland: Northern Lights

    It´s good to protect your fingers and ears from cold and also remember that wind increases coldness rapidly. Other thing is icy roads. They are common problem at the winters when weather may change from cold to wet and back to cold. Many people use different kind of slipping barriers (not sure what´s by English, by Finnish it´s liukueste ). You can find from them many markets as well from the shoe stores and I really recommend to try them. Prices are from about 10 euros to more but those cheapest too are very good.

    I'm glad you're having a great experience there. You will get used to the cold. Give it about a week or two and don't be surprised if you get ill during that time, but inshallah you won't Make sure you keep your hands clean..I have a habit of washing my hands every time I return home because people are sneezing and coughing and touching everything that you touch lol.
