Brussels Morning Market And Round-Up

ONE TIP WHEN PLANNING TO GO TO BRUSSELS, it is more "happening" at the city center... we didn't know till we were there and were told that processions is a norm during weekends.  I took some video clips of the procession, ok, it was not me who took, I just couldn't see from the position I was seated but Aaron managed to capture some for me... I could only see the crowd and heard the loud music....

The procession is on..... and the crowd loves it....
Not sure what kind of festival... maybe it was for the weekend tourists...like us...
Horsing along the alleys ....
One more picture of The Peeing Boy before we headed back.... 
Something out of proportion here... 
On the way out from the city....
Where cars are not allowed to go in...
Entrance to the Grand Palace...
And that was it....

The very next morning, we woke up early because we were told that there was a morning market just below our homestay apartment....  We still have three hours to go before our departure....
Something like our own morning or night market here.....
But it was a huge one that we couldn't finished walking to each and every stall....
If we have the time to cook, we would surely buy a few things here....
We didn't do any shopping here... 
Just bought some buns, roasted chicken and grapes for our brunch.....
And after packing up, we headed to the train station just five minutes walk away....
Goodbye Brussels!!

  2. Oh? What happened to your friend? Did not see her in any of the photos? Gosh!!! This is indeed a long holiday - I would not have the energy to go so long and to so many places, would be half dead by the time I get back. So nice and sweet of Aaron to take you all over.

  4. I like it where cars are not allowed in. So nice that your homestay is so near to a morning market. Can go and look around and buy a thing or two.

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
