EUROPE (Brussels)

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! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

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
hehehe

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 πŸ™

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 πŸ˜›

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 πŸ™

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! πŸ™‚

Funny because we only have super big notes, cos i changed 500 denominated euros πŸ™ 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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ˜‰

Khao Yai Thailand

Holla! Hope all of you’ve been good. Heh.

 

I know it’s LONG overdue, but I’d love to share some visuals from my past trip to Khaoyai from BKK!

We booked a cab for the entire day and we set off in the morning @ 7 am… supposedly a whole day trip but we cut it short because it got kinda boring for sister and I so we skipped dinner there and headed back to BKK for dinner & shoppingggggg!


Khao Yai in my opinion is a great place for photo taking and a chillax day! But I personally don’t feel that I would like to stay over because it’s kind of boring. But there are many photogenic locations (as seen from my pictures!) We’re also lucky because we went during the season when the sunflowers bloomed. πŸ™‚ The weather there was also cooler than BKK.

Below are my filtered photos (hehe):

Krabi Trip

Day 1.

 

 

Departing from SIN!

 

we took budget: Tiger airways
So there was 5 of us so we decided to AIRBNB after our wonderful experienceΒ @ BKK!
The area we stayed was at Ao Nang πŸ™‚

 

 

 

 

 

Super pretty pink scooter!!
We wanted to rent 3 bikes but there were 3 of us who don’t know how to.. tried to learn but failed terribly (oops).
I kept thinking back on Lombok and wished I had learnt it then πŸ™

 

 

 

 

 

In the end we decided to rent a car, which was the BEST DECISION EVER!! Even though of course it’s much more expensive. But worth it!! Because we went during monsoon season and it rained everyday T_T
Headed for lunch after we settled everything, finally!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then we headed to the supermarket and did some grocery shopping!
We also decided to go to the Tiger Cave.. where we didn’t know that there was a crazy amount of steps to climb to reach the ‘mountain top’..
when we arrived it started to pour so we seek shelter and saw super cute dogs and pups!!!

 

Climbing up 2,764 steps??? It was tiring!! and scary at times because some steps are super steep!! Gosh…

 

The struggle was real HAHA

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After the cave, we headed back to our house and Zu cooked us dinner!!!

 

 

So colourful and delish!
On the 2nd day, we headed for White Water Rafting! Which was initially scary.. But so fun!!! Major adrenaline rush, hahaha
It was pouring non stop the entire day so we rafted in the rain, making it more thrilling than evaaaa~
We reached late so we started the ‘journey’ at mid. But it was OK coz they said that the first two sections were mild so doesn’t really matter that we missed it.

 

 

 

 

No ahyin coz she was the one taking our photos!
It was really very exciting and I couldn’t stop screaming. It was so cold too and we got splashed water so damn many times!

 

 

 

We bought the “package” where buffet lunch was provided, yay! We were relatively hungry because first meal of the day!

 

 

the omelette was so shiookkkkk
Headed back to our house after everything, it was an approximately 90 mins drive back!
Washed up and rested!!
And Zu cooked again (our left over ingredients from the day before!)

 

And corn too!
It was raining so we just stayed at the house until evening and headed to Ao Nang Centre point… had dinner then went drinking at Crystal Bar!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Alcohol is super cheap in Thailand!!!!!

 

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOOLLL
Day 3
