Finally got to go and see some tulip fields today. We are all scheduled to go to keukenhof next week.. but to be honest, with the weather that we are having, i was a bit afraid that the tulips would have been gone by then. So H was really nice to drive over 300km (return trip) to the North of Netherlands so that we could take some pictures. It was such a pity that after 1 week of beautiful weather, it rained today... oh.. and end up, i didn't feel that great in the car. Sneezing and teary eyes. H said that it was due to the pollen in the air. I become ok after i came home though. I highly think that H has to clean his car!! hahaha
We have got Koninginnedag to look forward to in Amsterdam this mid-week and we are going to be on a boat in the canal! Lots of pictures then!!
Easter weekend was spent with H's family. imagine CNY, but ang moh style. Whole lot of relatives and feasting. Glad to have the opportunity to meet with the extended family and the weather was perfect.
Easter egg hunting, horse rides, farm visit, skipping and trampoline jumps. How cool is that huh?
Spring is really pretty here... everyday i see more and more flowers and they are breathtaking..
And tis the season for white asparagus... i love them! They are not called white gold for nothing. We cycle on my new bike, piet the fiet to the farm buy fresh ones.. super lekker.
Serve them cooked with butter, ham and egg with some potatoes and that's dinner.
Spaking of which, i have to introduce my very 'traditional dutch' bike, Piet!
And we found a cat who stalks us.. he's the funniest thing ever.
Once my printer is here, it's going to make a print and give it to the owner! :P
And it's really pretty here. Oh, yes, my lack of updates was due to me moving across continents from Singapore to Netherlands.
In the beginning, there was a lot of emotions that i was going through, from being excited to sad, scared and nervous. There were so many nights that i couldn't sleep. First from not being able to settle my things, not enough money for my insurance premiums, not being able to sell my car... to well, selling my car at too low a price.. etc etc.
but everything's behind now.. so i am settling in well over here. I couldn't have come at a better season. The weather's beautiful, flowers are blooming.. and the paperwork took less time than i expected. So officially, i'm a resident of the Royal Kingdom of Netherlands!
So while waiting for my dutch lessons to start, i've busy taking pictures, cooking, shopping, wandering around.. pretty fun to be honest. So many things to do that i don't even have time to update my blog.
