translation please…
Posted in amsterdam, personal, recent work December 9th, 2008 by piablog

Does anyone out there speak Dutch? If you do, perhaps you can help me translate this… i think it says something about me having a Dutch surname but not speaking Dutch. oh the irony. This is in the front section of the latest Maria magazine that just came out onto the newstands today. It is an honour to be on the contributors page, thank you for including me Maria!

So what’s this all about? Well, how about we turn to page 86 of the magazine and take a look…


PS I look a little serious here don’t i, i must make a point of working on my smiley face. 🙂

    I don’t speak Dutch, only German, but this should say something like:

    »Pia has a Dutch surname, but she is Australian with heart and soul. She is a much sought-after food styliste. On her green painted houseboat in Amsterdam, she works hard for her first book, which will be published next year. Pia has an eye for new lifestyle trends. For Maria she did the styling of the Christmas diner.«

    Translation: I wonder why I wasn’t featured on the front cover?

    You look thoughtful, but that’s good, isn’t it? How exciting to be featured! Btw, the Christmas decoration ideas you’ve posted are really beautiful and inspirational!

    trudi, thank you muchly!!

    miranda, page 86 is on it’s way! I’m just making them fit now, and adding a few extras from the shoot too.

    josephine – totally! I am a daydreamer aren’t I.

    Esti – thanks! I shall deliver page 86 to you in my next post.

    Julia – that is so awesome, thank you!! I was able to get the gist of it but I didin’t realise it talked about the book or that I’m ‘sought-after’ – how sweet. thank you so much for the translation.

    shelby – exciting indeed!
