An End To My Europe Trip

OUR LAST DAY IN AMSTERDAM DIDN'T GO WASTED... We had the whole morning and afternoon to go sightseeing cos we only need to go to the airport at 3pm... We quickly set out to another direction, Aaron said we must visit his place before we leave.....
Crossed the Skinny Bridge and instead of turning right, we turned left to Amsterdam museum....
Again, it was not a short distance... but the scenery helps to soothe our walk....
Soothing to our eyes and resting our legs as we walked along....
And stopped at an Italian restaurant to satisfy our tummies....
We were the early birds....
My friend ordered stew rabbit meat....
Aaron's pasta something....
And my free range chicken with Italian spices and herbs....
And our hot fresh mint leaves tea....
Soon we set out again and finally some minutes, we reached the museum....
But we didn't go in the museum this time... Just outside.....
Aaron said this is a Must-Visit place.....
No regrets coming here despite the long and cold walk....
Action.... 'she aint heavy, she's my mummy' 
Here 'I' Am!!
Just look at the crowd!!
Our last stop.... Amsterdam....
Our trip came to an end.....
My most challenging trip on wheels, one I will never forget....
Give Thanks in all circumstances....

  1. haha, yeah, must visit put the very last item in your itinerary, that's brilliant!!! I've heard of this "I amsterdam" and so glad you were there, now I can see the "real" thing with crazy tourists climbing all over, unlike the "lonely" one in photos~~ :D

  3. Very lovely scenery pictures. Your plate of whole range chicken with Italian spices and herbs looks very delicious. You finished it all by yourself? Museum building has a very beautiful design. You mean you go all the way and not enter the museum? Its funny seeing all those tourist climbing up the letterings. And lastly, you overcame the challenge of having to travel on wheels. Hurray!

  9. I did not expect that "I amsterdam" sign to be so crowded! Usually I see those travel bloggers' photos of this place to be so empty. How did they do that??

  11. Well done Claire! Achievement unlocked! I don't think there are many people who can claimed to have gone on a vacation on a wheelchair (those permanently challenged people not counted).

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
