Brussels Morning Market And Round-Up

ONE TIP WHEN PLANNING TO GO TO BRUSSELS, it is more "happening" at the city center... we didn't know till we were there and were told that processions is a norm during weekends.  I took some video clips of the procession, ok, it was not me who took, I just couldn't see from the position I was seated but Aaron managed to capture some for me... I could only see the crowd and heard the loud music....

The procession is on..... and the crowd loves it....
Not sure what kind of festival... maybe it was for the weekend tourists...like us...
Horsing along the alleys ....
One more picture of The Peeing Boy before we headed back.... 
Something out of proportion here... 
On the way out from the city....
Where cars are not allowed to go in...
Entrance to the Grand Palace...
And that was it....

The very next morning, we woke up early because we were told that there was a morning market just below our homestay apartment....  We still have three hours to go before our departure....
Something like our own morning or night market here.....
But it was a huge one that we couldn't finished walking to each and every stall....
If we have the time to cook, we would surely buy a few things here....
We didn't do any shopping here... 
Just bought some buns, roasted chicken and grapes for our brunch.....
And after packing up, we headed to the train station just five minutes walk away....
Goodbye Brussels!!

  2. Oh? What happened to your friend? Did not see her in any of the photos? Gosh!!! This is indeed a long holiday - I would not have the energy to go so long and to so many places, would be half dead by the time I get back. So nice and sweet of Aaron to take you all over.

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...
