Finally updating on my first EU trip this year with my sis (and mom joined halfway after!!)
Took a long flight from SG > Doha > Brussels!
Arrived in Brussels in the morning and My sis came to pick me up! 😀 😀
super duper happy to see this stupid face after 4ish months! We finally reunited and we were so happy T_T <3
We stayed at Courtyard Mariott- super convenient and near the train station, also train station to other cities!
After settling down and getting changed at the hotel we headed out to the city centre to explore our one & only day at Brussels… hehe
WHAT IS VISITNG BELGIUM WITHOUT HAVING BELGIUM WAFFLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! omg everything looks so good and FYI i got a very sweet tooth so THIS is like heaven to me!
Find someone who looks at you like how I look at waffles :-))))
^this is the speculoos with white choc and banana!!!!!!!!!!! i really love it a lot tho it’s too sweet for my sis after after. Anything with banana/ white choc is BAE. (AND speculoos is like a basic flavour/ spread in europe- super good too)
Us being tourists…… eat waffles also gotta have a pic with it
And of course, we visited a few places of interests such as, the Grand Place at the City square.
Such scenic and beautiful buildings. But so swarmed with people!
It was chilly in Belgium when i arrived and am so not used to the cold weaather!!! Kept craving for hot stuff and bought myself a cup of hot chocolate to keep myself warm.
Photobombers in all my photos 🙁
WE ALSO HAD THE FAMOUS BELGIAN FRITES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sis queued for it outside while i found seats inside and waited in the warmth…
looks damn yummy but it actually tasted pretty norm. BUT I LOVE FRIES SO IT’S STIL YUMMY TO MEEEEEE 😛
We walked past another waffle shop and it was packed with people and there was a queue, sis said it is one of the “famous ones” so we decided to get another waffle also, HAHA
Belgium is also very known for beer….. especially craft beers i think? There’s a whole range of craft beers in everywhere!! Fancy!
Also went to see the Manneken Pis, just for the sake of it- and a selfie together just for keepsake, haha!
Belgium can be easily toured within a day, although we didnt exactly cover everything but we did complete most of the main attractions and the MUST-EAT(s). Belgium chocolates included!!!
FOR DINNER, we had MUSSELS!!! (I mean of course right!!!) It was a day of non stop eating. We had dinner early because we didn’t make any reservations and we were afraid it will get crowded if we go later. Also because I was starting to feel tired (jetlagged)
We went to Leon’s, which is very famous/ popular, it was yummy, but not the best I think? Also, it’s quite expensive and the service isn’t great :/
(P/S. really on point eyelashes much thanks to @diownbeauty. (I’ve been going to them for YEARS…)
Seeing all these photos now makes me miss traveling with my sister 🙁
Fun fact about me: I am a pescatarian for years, but never loved a lot of seafood, I eat mainly fish and prawns (if i dont have to peel them). I hardly eat shell fishes, never really liked or enjoyed clams/ mussels/ crabs/ oysters. But ever since this trip to Europe, I fell in love with mussels. (I SPECIALLY LOVE WHITE WINE GARLIC SAUCE/ BROTH, even when i didnt use to love clams- i.e. vongole, HAHA)
After our early dinner, we went to Delirium Cafe for beer! 🙂
Funny because we only have super big notes, cos i changed 500 denominated euros 🙁 And the bar did not have change, so we tried using our cards, but was unable to get through that time for some reason, tried numerous times and the nice guy at the bar decided to give us the beers for free! Half pint each for us, yay.
We ordered craft beers, but it didn’t taste very good, a bit weird. I prefer my lager beers 🙂
Was still bright outside when we made our way back. Both of us were tired, since my sis traveled late the day before and woke up early to fetch me from the airport.
We bought 16 piece of chocolates back since Belgium is flooded with chocolate stores, hehe. This was so good too. LOVE IT. (I am a chocolate fan by the way :))
This post sums up our one & only day in Belgium!!!! Coming up next would be my post on Paris 😉
