Our Homestay In Amsterdam

THE HOST CAME TO PICK US UP FROM SCHIPHOL AIRPORT FOR 25 EURO EXTRA BESIDES the one night stay in Amsterdam North and drove a fifteen minutes drive to his homestay apartment... 
It was quite out of town and we didn't mind a bit cos we would be departing the very next morning....
Very nice and quiet area where we put up the night.....
This was where we stayed.... Residential area...
This is the living hall... Oh, there are bedrooms but unfortunately they are on the first level..
I have a problem here... I couldn't hop up all the way because the stairs were narrow and spiraled...
Ended up using my backside to go up and down, safer that way but ended up "mopping" his stairs instead...
Inconvenience #1.... For the disabled 
Inconvenience #2.... There is no toilet upstairs, just a bathroom and the toilet is downstairs....
So either I sleep upstairs and restrain from going to the toilet or sleep downstairs on the sofa.... Sigh....
Aaron and my friend walked 15 minutes to the mall cos the one not abled was very tired....
My friend at work in the kitchen....
Lunch was instant noodles with spinach and egg soup!!
Oh, meatballs were not left out..... Yummsss....
And some hours later..... Dinner!!
Marinated spareribs and meatballs....
Plus roasted chicken wings... Ten pieces in total but only two left when I suddenly remember to take this picture... That shows how hungry we were then!
Took an evening walk after dinner at the park to relax our tummies... 
A lonely bird was there.....
By six pm, it was already turning dark... 
We made our way back to the house after a short walk...
And we had a good night sleep .... Downstairs at the living hall.... 
Both of them sacrificed the beds to sleep with me on sofas and on the floor....
So touched...so loved... Thank you.... Love you both!!!

  1. So nice to see clear blue sky and autumn coloured leaves in your photos. Over here the haze is terrible, some days couldn't even see the sun. Both lunch and dinner looks yummy. True love is about making sacrifices. So where is your next destination?

  2. I prefer remaining downstairs, since the toilet is downstairs, and no need to climb up & down.. And it's just for a night right.. Dinner is a lot for 3 people wor - noodles with soup, meatballs, chicken wings, ribs.. Wah, nice..

  12. What a loving and understanding people for sleeping with you below. You are God's favourite and he sent angles to keep you happy! You were so funny to mop the steps with your back! Funny lady!

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
