Happy birthday me…

with 6 comments

Okay this may sound quite sad but I’ll post it anyway…

Had a nice birthday lunch (insalata rucola, lasagne al forno and espresso) in Sagrantino (Berlin), one of the best Italian food I’ve had in Germany so far.

Dinner was in Sila Thai, a very upscale Thai restaurant in the middle of Dusseldorf…

So, happy birthday me – a solitary birthday.

On the strassebahn (tram)
Guten tag! Sorry for leaving you guys out in the cold for a while. I’ve been caught up with work (unfortunately) and well my camera’s dead so there wasn’t much motivation to blog. Anyone want to get me the Sony DSC-T100 cybershot cam? Thanks in advance.

I believe that I’m picking up the language quite well. I understand signages (ausgang, eingang, sud, nord) and stuff now. Here are some random shots…

A disastrous result of German humour… =_=”
What were they thinking…

The IMEX 2007 trade show was concluded yesterday (the reason I’m in Frankfurt in the first place). Suffice to say it was a productive show and I shan’t bore you with details…

The Malaysian delegation to IMEX 2007, Frankfurt. Notice the “rebel” without the tie hehe
Mei Phing, Marn, Siti N and I decided to go for the traditional German babi feast for dinner. So we parked ourselves at Adolf Wagner, on Schweizenstrasse – a traditional German restaurant that was continuously packed daily. Take the line 16 tram (strassebahn), direction Offenbach and get down at Schwanthalerstrasse stop. The restaurant is famous for their apfelwein (yup you guessed it, apple wine). Siti N took a rain check and well we found out later that she was at Dr. Mullers (if you’ve been to Germany you’ll know what I’m talking about).

MP enjoying her food.. very much heeheh
There was so much pork, Marn couldn’t believe herself

Off to Latvia tomorrow, cheerios!

Going away… AGAIN

with one comment

Okay here’s the next itinerary…

I’m cutting short this trip from the initial 3-week circuit to two weeks. Believe it or not, I have not fully recovered from the exhaustion of my previous three week circuit around Europe…

15 – 21 April 2007: Frankfurt, Germany
Not my first trip to Frankfurt, nevertheless I look forward to it. Contrary to popular believe, I find Frankfurt more interesting than other major cities in Germany (besides Munich, where Oktoberfest is held annually).

21 – 25 April 2007: Riga, Latvia
This will be my first trip to Latvia, I think it would not be much different from its neighbour Estonia, which I visited last month.

25 – 28 April 2007: Krakow, Poland
Having visit Warsaw in my last trip, I had a good impression of Krakow from speaking to the hotel staff (the wonderful Sofitel Victoria Warsaw). They mentioned that Krakow was unscathed by the two World Wars and many beautiful buildings and historical monuments are the most interesting places to visit.

The only thing is, I will be flying Thai Airways due to the unavailability of flights on Singapore Airlinesand KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. And I found out that they don’t have the video on demand (personal screens). I managed to secure the last seat on the flight.

Lets hope that the renown Thai hospitality will manage to bowl me over (with help of lots of Singha beer).

Oh well, here I go again…

Wish me luck! =)

Baci baci, Leo
