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.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

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

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...
