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).

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
