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.

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...
