Lausanne - Montreux - Spiez
Monday, March 30, 2009
It's a day light saving in Swiss starting from today.
The timing has been faster by 1 hour.
It sounds weird doesnt it.
But the whole town has adjusted their timing accordingly
as if your watch was not in the right timing.
I had a great stay at Lausanne in a Marriane and Philippe house.
They are so nice and sweet people.
Marriane is from ducth, a comixian.
Me and Mitchelle stayed at their house for 2 days.
They treated us like family and they are very friendly.
They had a fat black and white fury cat named Domino.
It was france area of Swiss.
France language is much better than German.
Lausanne is a town on the slope.
They had a lake that is shared with France.
It was raining the whole day yesterday in Lausanne.
Today I went to Montreux.
A town next to Lausanne.
Montreux is very colourful. The lake is superb romantic.
The snowy mountains were reflected on the lake.
It was a clear blue lake that you could see yourself as reflection
and reflection of the sky..
Very very beautiful place.
The golden pass is an awesome trip too.
Its a panaromic train that passes the beautiful places,
especially the alps of swiss.
The whole journey like a place in girl's storybook,
where the snow, magic, fairytale live,
full of snow, white, at top of mountain.
UK loves me

My first ever trip in the world
How cool is that?!
I went to London last weekend
Everything seems to be God's plan
When I was in the Basel to take the flight to London
They checked on my friends passport on the nationality,
and since Singaporean doesnt need visa to UK,
they let her in.
I thought the lady assumed I came from Singapore too,
and only looked at the expired date of the passport.
So I got in the plane.
That is the first miracle...
I was stopped by the immigration in London and were being asked about the visa
I thought I would got detained and being sent back
But I didnt
I was just asked to filled some document
about 1 hour, everything settled,
my passport would be kept by them until my return date of the ticket.
Second miracle I got pass the immigration custom,
without to pay a penny!
When I return to Swiss by plane,
There was policemen who fetched me and my friends
So cool! Cause we didnt need to take bus and wait at the windy snowy night.
Every passenger was looking at us.
Direct drive to the office.
We cut all the queue and in 5 minutes,
We were out.
Save at Swiss. I was at Geneva by then.
Anyway I was happy when I was in London.
It was so different than in Swiss.
Maybe because Pounds is so low there,
so I think there is cheaper.
Like for example,
we found lots of chinese food that is very affordable
and they have night life too
And the best thing, they speak the language that I can understand
In Bern, I live in an alien planet.
The people speak German
So all the train explaination, poster, newspaper, movies, all in German
And until today
I didnt learn any German words at all
maybe Dunke(thank u), Damen(woman, i see this alot as toilet sign)..
But the people say Thank you in France (mercy)
continue about London,..
I saw Prince William and Harry house.
From outside laaaaaaaa
Nothing too extravagant,
Its located near the Buckingham Palace
I love the museum in London,
The British Museum have those mummy collection
Lots of scrupture of the Greek and Roman God
The National Museum got the fossil stuff
The dinosaurus and the sea marine fossil!
If u read Charles Dicken book
He mentioned lots of places in London
I dont read the book obviously
My literature friends told me so
The weather in London was fantastic when we are there
It was a clear clear blue sky!
When u can see the airplane smoke on the sky..
Its that clear
Though normally London is famous for their bad weather and gloomy day.
I was impressed with the shopping center called Harrods.
It was amazing.
Every room have very authentic design and beutiful in its own way
Every room have very authentic design and beutiful in its own way
Never seen something like that before
I went to the market too,
try to eat Blackberry(which is really good).
I was so tempted to eat the rock osyter!
1 for 1.20 pounds. Fresh
I bought 1. Haha.
It tasted like heaven okay!
I havent been eating fresh seafood since I am here
Its all FROZEN seafood.
Branded stuff should be cheap now in UK,
since pounds drop like crazy,
everyone should go there and shop for now

Somehow I felt so stuck here
I means people have their own hang out
Though I dont mind to stand at my own feet
They are certain things that you cant do by your own
Like playing badminton alone? Suck isnt it?
I met all weird of people
I dont know to say good or bad
I just swallow my saliva
and watch it
I cant say it out
coz I am like an orbit around them
I cant evolve at other places
Thats why I said
I am so stuck!
But with all this circumstances
I am still surviving and breathing
I could still smile and laugh in my heart
Sometimes about others,
sometime laugh at my own silliness
Though things doesnt always turn out on how I want it to be
But i like it as surprise
Nothing could excite me more
than a little surprice
There is nothing bad
Nor unlucky about my life
It is just an experience
you will laugh about it
you will be old grandma and tell you grandchild
stories of good and bad
they loved to hear more bad than good
cause they could laugh at it
people find it funny
at others suffering
Sad, but true huh!?
So if u suffer alot,
You sure are a joker

Yesterday I had no class.
So I went to uniSport for some exercise.
As I had lots of things on my mind,
I decided to tour myself around bern.
Bern had always been this colour.
Greyish & dirty Yellow.
It snow heavily yesterday but it didnt capture in the camera.
And probably it wasnt cold enough to make the snow remain as ice.
I found a second hand shop. They sell painting and doll. These are the dolls outside the shop. They looked pretty scary to me though.
If you come to bern, you will surely being introduce with this clock. Its amazing clock with carries meaning. And they are very complicated like they use the zodiak as the month, and they use planet name as thei symbolic of something. The clock do not use electric to be operated. It just require people to wind the thing to make it work. It kinda lack now and not very accurate but still it is interesting to see the moving doll on the clock.
In here pets have equal right as human. They can go shopping, restaurant, anywhere with their master. Their dogs are big and comes with beautiful fur. And they dont bark or be naughty. Some of them are not even tie up but will just follow the master. How cute are they. Ok this is weird coz i dont normally talk about pets. For your info, i am not a fan of pet.
I bought a shoe yesterday. It discounted 70% and I am really happy!
It was the last pair, the last size they have.
What a luck?!
What a luck?!
I bought coz I desperately need a common shoe, for sport, walking and spring is coming. I wouldnt wear boots.
If you are bored,
twist your eyes
and see the picture
How am I doing?
I never really got time to be alone
I do enjoy it alot
I have alot time to do anything I want
I have time to go through every music in my song ling
Oh I even can sing each of them
I could finish reading my book
(actually i only read when in e toilet most of the time)
I can watch non stop Korean drama
(I still got lots of movie to finish up in mysoju.com)
I enjoy sitting in front of the window and watching the snow fall
I love doing sports here for unknown reason
I like reading news in Singapore
I surf facebook like everytime i on my laptop
I come to appreciate people around me
I miss people whom I always see every week
From the colors of fall to the fragrance of spring
Every creature unique in the song that it sings
Enter Other Spaces
