Final Post On Amsterdam Sights

ROUNDUP of our three days two nights trip in Amsterdam... finally... my readers can heave a sigh of relief now!  LOL...

My second trip to Amsterdam ended with walking and more walking.  My friends asked why I did not put on weight, in fact, I lost some weight instead.  Now you know the reason!  Walking in the cold makes a lot of difference, food also counts, my country food adds weight... in a foreign land, I shed my fats.  LOL... That is the reason why I like to travel!
The Van Gogh museum...
This time I could not get near to I Love Amsterdam... 
Just too many people... 
While the guys went inside the museum, we ladies had our private talk here.. 
We came here too... Botanical Garden...
Didn't know I have to climb so high... and looked down... oooohhhh...
Thumbs up for overcoming height phobia!
Walked around the garden... and lake...
Captivating butterflies flying above our heads ...
The posers... 
Sweet temptations at the Botanical... 
A canal boat ride... 
Boat houses along the canals...
After the ride... 

The second evening, there was a live performance in town...
The crowd was fantastic...
I had to hold on to my friend's arm for fear I get lost in the crowd!
Fireworks and music was in the air!

At a lesser crowd area... I was caught doing this..
And our farewell meal before we departed for the airport the next morning!
Many thanks to our Austrian friends who took us around!!

  1. I always lost weight too when I went overseas in Winter. The non stop walking and cold weather burns up calories fast.

    I am planning a trip to Amsterdam soon.

  2. I am very sorry to see your Amsterdam posts come to an end. I have really been enjoying it. They have been like reading a travel magazine. What a stunning butterfly you posted!! And I love seeing the canal and boat houses. And the nighttime decorated street.

  3. I put on weight when I go abroad. I guess I do not sweat so much in the nice cool weather...and I tend to have a great appetite, will eat so much!

  8. I remember my final walk over there was under the rain and cold breeze!! But Amsterdam is indeed a beautiful city. I can say it is one of my favourite in Europe.

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
