*which man to pick as temporary boyfriend

*which man has the biggest dick

*which guy is sexy

-_________________- yea i know...old laydays (no eye see)

music band to support the runners

uncle Don at the back...really nice guy,serious

my mums' new friends

uncle Don brought us around Antwerp cause he has been living there for YEAAARS and obviously he's more familiar than all of us









oh?! we reached the central station o_O

mum was craving for Chinese food and she was complaining to her newly-known friends thank God they were super kind to spend my mum and I to dine..in a Chinese restaurant!


Tofu and Veg in Hot Pot


Pak Choi in garlic


something something Spare Ribs =.=  food intro FAIL *deng*


Sweet and Sour Pork


thanks for the treat!! it was a lovely meal! weeee~~ after all, it's freeeeee~!!

uncle Don, aunt NiNi sent my mum and I to the central station and aunt NiNi went back to the hostel uncle Don accompanied us to kill our time before we depart to the next stop, Amterdam :)

we were really lucky to know aunt Nini from the hostel we lived in together cause from her, we get to know more wonderful and amazing friends - uncle Mike, uncle Don and aunt Elly it's damn hard to get such friends where you can click in one second and who are willing to help you, treat you a meal in a day! it's like meeting good Samaritans! and i learn a lot listening from their experience as well...extra credit for my trip!


i got myself Chocolate Mint, either Mocha or Chocolate and Cherry nougats..! the peanuts nougat belongs to my mum

overall, Belgium is worth my time and moolah it's a nice place to sit back and relax, take a sip of Margarita, read a paper etc however, i don't fancy the waffles much..i still prefer those in Barcelona..that was super yummy...! irresistible! i didn't get the chance to visit Ghent and Bruges >.< gotta earn my own money and fly over for another round then

my next destination will be Amsterdam, Netherlands! *pop out eyes* so stay putt! see ya!
