Weekend in Barcelona...

Time: 11:05pm - Saturday
Weather: 10 deg - partly cloudy
Vanue: Barcelona, Spain
Mood: Feel like baking!
Peak Agenda: Its weekend which means hubs is around to take us out.. tmrw hes flying to Dusseldorf and will fly back fm Milan on tuesday night.. I am the captain fm tmrw onwards.. spending time with my kids is really something that i look forward to..

Soo we got into Barcelona safely.. we were running a little late that day and when we got into Barcelona.. hubs realized that he had left his mobile phone at Radisson hotel.. called up the hotel and they found it.. lucky him! got into the rental car that hubs had booked.. he felt uncomfy in that car.. got it changed to Audi and got into the apartment without any hassle.. tks to GPS ey! hubs later went to his first meeting and i was left to unpack all the bags when i realized that my beloved camera bag was no where to be seen.. cant call hubs since his phone was still in Paris.. so had to wait till he got back at night and by the time he called Europcar .. they said the previous car had been rented out.. grrr - the rest is history..

I managed to go thru that frustration and cursing phase.. (thanks to all my readers who took the time to leave all the kind words.. i appreciate it very very much) the word "if only" was constantly being spoken in every conversation i had with my family nevertheless i know things happen for a reason.. last year in Barcelona.. someone stole Sonia's Ipad and this year.. someone stole my beloved camera.. the camera that took me to where i am right now.. taking pics of my loved ones.. taking pics of the places that i hv been.. taking pics of my bakes is something that i really like to do.. never in my right mind did i think i wud willingly lug around a bulky camera.. ahhh well... am not gonna dwell over it.. we made a police report and thats it..

Anywayyy.. yesterday we didnt do much.. we hv been walking non stop.. u know barcelona is equal to walking right?? i also managed to buy a few more mac sheets and at the same time managed to buy fleur del sel that i am planning to sell in my store.. so keep a look out yah.. i guess i will be looking for boxes to handcarry everything.. wish me luck! oh and thank you to all that hv bought their mac sheets.. will send it out once i am back week after next.. :o)

Ok i got to go.. i hv to do laundry.. tmrw morning .. ahem if everyone is awake by 9am.. i wud love to take Hairi on a little mini tour.. hv a good sunday you all!


Sonia who is constantly up to something... she cant keep still even while her Abang is trying out shoes.. oh talking abt shopping.. u dont want to know how long Hairi takes each time he tries on something.. be it clothing or shoes.. i am seeing the all new - vain - side of my son lol... hubs bought him practically everything that he touches! geeeshhh

La Rambla walkway.. i blogged abt this area last year while in Barcelona.. u meet all kinda ppl fm all walks of life here!

A visit to La Rambla market "La Boqueria" is a must in every way.. the coffee here is to die for... i craved for it when i went back to Singapore last year.. i got my dosage yesterday eventho i had to wait for half an hr just to get a table!

Sonia = chocolates = cheese - she loves em all...

The berries... oh my.. they look so fresh that i ended up buying lots plus who wouldnt pay 1 euro for berries.. maybe i can whip up something tmrw?? hmmm

Hehehe.. each time Hairi walks pass it he will pinch his nose and run away :op (Its air dried cured Ham also called Serrano Ham)

Kuala Lumpur?? my heart jumped when i saw the sign.. was hoping i cud find Mee Rebus in there muahahaha - but no this shop sells cheap souvenirs - i buy all my halal meat fm one of the lanes off La Rambla.. so far i hv been there twice .. very hard to find but the moment we walked in the shop the owner cried out and greeted hubs as he remembered him from the last time... he has now expanded: across the small lane he now has a burger shop - where we promptly had our lunch :)

The moment she saw this lion statue she said.. "mama.. remember this lion? remember bibik Silvia?!" - err (in my heart - NOPE!)

Ahuh.. work it girl! hehe (behind Sonia is the Rambla del Mar boardwalk with the leisure craft harbour and right at the back the Mare Magnum shopping center)



Enjoy video budak yg poteng school hehe
