Wheeling From Paris To Brussels, Belgium

WE STAYED TWO NIGHTS IN PARIS, it was good enough and the next day after a good night's rest, we took our own sweet time to pack up... Took a cab to the train station and I like Aaron's arrangement of the time schedule.  Our departures from each country are at noon, so that we do not have to stress and get up too early in the morning...

Left for Brussels, Belgium and reached there in less than two hours, to my surprise... if not for this trip, I wouldn't know these two countries are actually quite near to each other...  Again, Aaron arranged for a B and B lodging and this time, the lady was waiting for us at the train station.  Then we followed her and I thought we were going to the car park... But no, I was wrong, our lodging is just five minutes walk from the train station!  Very convenient.... YES!

 And I like it here.. the apartment was bigger and neater than the Paris one...
But bigger also means I have to hop more actually.....
One bedroom to accommodate me and my friend...
Aaron has to sleep on the sofa bed in the living hall... 
The clean kitchen... we cooked only one meal here... 
 The bathroom with separate toilet...
Have to hop a bit further to the loo... 
The scenery from our highest 7th floor apartment...
Looks kind of quiet on a Saturday afternoon....
 After dumping all our bags, we walked back to the train station to have our lunch....
The train station is like a shopping mall... 
We settle for something Italian.... 
 Their pizzas are totally different from ours.... 
Just look at their cheesy fillings!!
Every piece looks good for Aaron!
As for me, I settle for roasted chicken anytime!
And of course.... a glass of chocolate mousse to complete the meal.....
I normally do not ask exactly how much our meal cost...
They are normally 20 Euro more or less... 
One cannot afford to be picky...
All I do is to sit and wait...

  2. That's a very nice apartment, very lovely. I like staying in serviced apartments overseas - can do own cooking, buy stuff from the wet market and supermarts.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
