Life in the colours of Barcelona

Time: 8:38pm
Weather: 19C
Venue: Barcelona
Mood: Relax... feet aching lol
Peak Agenda: We hv been exploring Barcelona and the best way to do it is on foot.. yep yep i hv been walking.. its good cos i can see my thigh kissing each other when i'm standing naked in the bathroom .. ewwwww what a sight!! hahahha

So anywayyyyy.. yesterday i took like a zillion bad photos hahhaa.. i am just so bad at taking pics of buildings.. hb is good at it and i will just hv to wait till he's back fm Berlin.. which is by the way tmrw.. yeeehhhaaa.. (its just not the same to explore a new place without ur other half and that's a fact..)

We did lots these 2 days.. Barcelona is totally different fm other places that i hv been to.. am fascinated by the city simply bec there are many things to see.. wherever u walk there will be little lanes which lead u to many many shops .. err for example yah since us girls are into shopping hehehe.. so many stuff that i would love to share and i will hv to do it in several parts..

Going to start with La Boqueria Market.. i love going to markets wherever i go.. there is something abt markets which attracts me, so the first thing i did bef i flew to Barcelona was to google if there is one and true enough there is.. when we got there it felt as tho i'm at Central Market, Adelaide.. it's colourful and attracts locals and tourists.

The market is divided into different sections like Meats, Dried Fruits, Fruits and Vegetables, Seafood, Seeds and Cereals, Olives, Fish, Creperie etc etc etc There are some tapa bars where you can sit and eat something or just enjoy a fresh orange/fruit juice. ....And, of course many cafes, where we had our coffee fix.

The origin of the market dates back to the 13th century when it was an open-air market in front of one of the gates of the old city wall (plaza de la Boqueria). It was only in 1826 when the state officially recognized the market and created an official market. The metal roof was set up in 1914. The position of the market (in the middle of Les Ramblas) makes it the most popular in Barcelona among visitors, tourists and locals.



Sonia wakes up as early as 4am and will ask for breakfast.. yesterday she asked for scrambled eggs.. so here she is eating her brekkie at half past 4..

Coffee and dessert... cakes.. pastries.. yadda yadda yadda... u can never make me stop fm checking out what they hv.. can u see their macs?? no feet macs hahaha - still looks niceeee

Sonia is following in my footsteps.. she will stop to look at pastry shops and will gv me that smile hehehe

The start of La Boqueria Markets... my little princess and her gummies.. she's addicted to it!

Bibik's gummies.. now i know where my girl got it fm.. hmmmm

Mama in her comfort zone... yummmm.. i love it!

Very colourful and look at their strawberries...they are hugeee..

Many choices of fruits... the way they arrange it reminds me of markets in bangkok hahaha
