Woke up to a yummy breakfast sent to our room! We were quite amazed by the breakfast because we were expecting just toast and jam~ But there’s coffee, tea, fruit punch, pies, toasts and croissants! 😀 What a spread!
Love the crispy toasts with Nutella spread! Love the blueberry pies too! So much that my brother actually went to the supermarket to find the pie later on -_- But I think we only managed to find it when we were in Florence~
Don’t really have exact plans for the day because my brother was supposed to plan Venice and Rome, but you know guys don’t have such thing as an itinerary in their dictionaries. So he merely folded a few pages in the book borrowed from the library and we walked around aimlessly to snap some photos~
And guess what we got ourselves again! 2 scoops this time and that was basically our lunch! Our Italy highlight is seriously all about the gelatos there! And together with all the dough we chewed from the pizzas and pastas, you can see my face getting rounder towards the end of the trip 😛
On the Rialto bridge again! It’s like in the centre where we will pass by everyday~
Oh the Mickey paper bag revealed that I went to the Disney shop again! Found a gift for Ah Lyn there xD
Took a silly video of the surrounding because I really love Venice so much and I wish I can always relive the memories. Video is the best way to capture moments because it feels more real than stills (that’s why I prefer to be a video editor and not a photographer)! ((:
Passing by the Bridge of Sigh! Bro said he read that this is where prisoners were being brought across the bridge to the interrogation room opposite, so they would always sigh when crossing this bridge!
The interior is not as grand as the churches and cathedrals we have seen previously, but still a lot of work within the architectural design and paintings.
Oh I remember I was buying some eclairs from this shop above or a shop near it and I had my Singlish moment.
Staff: Just 2 eclairs takeaway?
Me: *nod* Ah!
Staff: *mimicked and laughed* Ah!
Me: *embarrassed* -_____-|||
Not exactly a Singlish but the usual slang we would use in Singapore that I realise foreigners wouldn’t use! It’s like such a common way we use for verbal replies of “Yes” that I totally did not realise it’s something so Singaporean x.x
I think we really ran out of places to go so we decided to walk to the train station where we would be taking train to Florence the next day just to check it out~ Like know where is it so that we would know how to go tomorrow.
And a THIRD scoop of gelato for the day!!! I blame it all on my brother. He got excited when he saw the flavour that he wants (probably his favourite melon or banana) and I was like, “But we just ate this morning!” He replied, “It’s okay lah. Let’s buy let’s buy!” So I got tempted as well. I think it was also cheaper, that’s why we couldn’t resist.
Settled down for dinner because we were tired of walking and we had run out of places to go too. I’m really not a carbo person but the choices in Italy are all starchy stuff like pasta and pizzas! Damn sick of it already after just 2 days. Decided to go for this spinach thing since I just had the gelato and was not that hungry.
Ended our night pretty early because we gotta pack for Florence. I bought so many nice Kinder Bueno goodies that are not available in Singapore! I miss them now! I bought them as souvenirs for friends and Bro kept nagging that I shouldn’t buy so many because we still have many days to go -_-
Our conversation would go like this:
Me: But Singapore don’t have!
Bro: Florence or Rome sure have mah, also part of Italy.
Me: But what if don’t have?! T.T
Bro: I don’t know you lah. Later your luggage cannot fit then you know.
I think I’m the 宁可杀错不可放过 kind, cause I really hate regrets! And after he tried 1 of the cakes and biscuits that I opened, he also went back to the supermarket the next day to buy more lor -.- I think we didn’t manage to find them in Florence at all. Only saw it once in Rome but more expensive? You see!!!
