Our Homestay In Amsterdam

THE HOST CAME TO PICK US UP FROM SCHIPHOL AIRPORT FOR 25 EURO EXTRA BESIDES the one night stay in Amsterdam North and drove a fifteen minutes drive to his homestay apartment... 
It was quite out of town and we didn't mind a bit cos we would be departing the very next morning....
Very nice and quiet area where we put up the night.....
This was where we stayed.... Residential area...
This is the living hall... Oh, there are bedrooms but unfortunately they are on the first level..
I have a problem here... I couldn't hop up all the way because the stairs were narrow and spiraled...
Ended up using my backside to go up and down, safer that way but ended up "mopping" his stairs instead...
Inconvenience #1.... For the disabled 
Inconvenience #2.... There is no toilet upstairs, just a bathroom and the toilet is downstairs....
So either I sleep upstairs and restrain from going to the toilet or sleep downstairs on the sofa.... Sigh....
Aaron and my friend walked 15 minutes to the mall cos the one not abled was very tired....
My friend at work in the kitchen....
Lunch was instant noodles with spinach and egg soup!!
Oh, meatballs were not left out..... Yummsss....
And some hours later..... Dinner!!
Marinated spareribs and meatballs....
Plus roasted chicken wings... Ten pieces in total but only two left when I suddenly remember to take this picture... That shows how hungry we were then!
Took an evening walk after dinner at the park to relax our tummies... 
A lonely bird was there.....
By six pm, it was already turning dark... 
We made our way back to the house after a short walk...
And we had a good night sleep .... Downstairs at the living hall.... 
Both of them sacrificed the beds to sleep with me on sofas and on the floor....
So touched...so loved... Thank you.... Love you both!!!

  1. So nice to see clear blue sky and autumn coloured leaves in your photos. Over here the haze is terrible, some days couldn't even see the sun. Both lunch and dinner looks yummy. True love is about making sacrifices. So where is your next destination?

  2. I prefer remaining downstairs, since the toilet is downstairs, and no need to climb up & down.. And it's just for a night right.. Dinner is a lot for 3 people wor - noodles with soup, meatballs, chicken wings, ribs.. Wah, nice..

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...
