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.

  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.

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

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... 

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
