Florence 11 & 13 June 2011

Florence on 13 June

wasnt feeling well enough for the day trip to San Gimignano so stayed in Florence.... trying out the bus system to San G is too much of work for a sick and not enough sleep ME.... was coughing the whole night and amazing Mr Ang said he couldnt hear a single cough.... hahahaha...




Sweet sweet Mr Ang brought me to a chinese restaurant for lunch... =)...



i miss rice so much..... so sick of pasta... =P ... wonder how italian can eat pasta for all meals their own life????




My pineapple fried rice @ 3.80 euro.... thought it was the thai kind but good enough... love the sunflower seeds ...=)





铁板豆腐





Then went shop shop around Florence street again like on 11 June 2011 as below....




Florence on 11 June



flee market aka pasar malam ... selling alot of different kinds of stuff but all very expensive....
















but still managed to get some little (may be abit useless) stuff for people around us.... hahahaha.....







Lunch place recommended by Douglas, the guide from Cinque Terres







5 euro a plate.... considered cheap but not really to my liking.... but Mr Ang thought they were good and finished them clean.... =)




mentioned in my previous post that the supermarket in europe is our good friend... =) ... they sell alot of ham....all sort of ham.... look at all the 猪脚s hanging on the rack.... hahaha.....






look at the price tag..... a bottle of wine is cheaper than a can of coke in a restaurant lo....





bought a box of mosquito patch....



why leh???? let me share with all of u a story....




"BANG".... i woke up with a start.... Mr Ang had just hit the wall.... it was 130am.... big eyed, i starred at him.... "what happened???" I asked.... "There's mosquitoes in the room," he replied VERY irritatedly and showed me his back and arms....oh my holy s**t....there were at least 20 mosquito bites on him.....poor boy.... the funny thing was, i had none cos i was well hidden under the blanket.... we had opened the window to our room as the air conditional was not working well (we found out the next day that the air conditional was set to fan...!!!)



so in the next half an hour, both of us starred at the walls and ceiling of our room and Mr Ang managed to kill 5 mosquitoes but there was still 1 at large....and that irritated him so much that he refused to go to bed while i dozed off... i woke up half an hour later to find Mr Ang super irritated again....he complained that he still cant kill that 1 mosquito and it was irritating him by buzzing around his ears when he tried to sleep... in the end, i had to coax him to sleep... sang him a lullably even (dosen matter that it was super out of tune) ....hahaha..... can you believe it??? My Mr Ang threw temper like a little boy who cant get his toy...all because he cant get the mosquito.... hahaha....





another must buy item from the super market - melon golden - taste just like apple, only sweeter... =).... yummy..... cost approx 40 euro cent each....







And what did we see in Florence leh?????



The famous white, green and pink duomo in Florence....











and no, we din pay the 6 euro to climb any hundreds of steps to have a top down view of Florence.... hahahaha..... like what Mr Ang said, we preferred to save the money for food...Mr Ang just refused to eat the sandwich from the push cart after trying it outside the colosseo in rome....






see alot of people lying down on the floor to enjoy the sky view...so i did the same ... but the sky not very preety that day leh.....



the view from our room was so much better.... =) .... and of cos the bed was more comfy than the hot hot and hard hard floor...




one of the many clock towers.... i lost track of which is this liao








A happy shopping day for Mr Ang...=)..... He spent a total of 250 euro in these 2 shops.....






never expect a catty Mr Ang to spent so much on clothing right??? He is actually a very vain man lo and he had been saving up just to spent them here.... hahahaha....




(nice and simple wall deco in H&M)



Impressive talent & art form on the street.... =)




Grazie = Thank You







A restaurant recommended by Mr Ang's friend, Guo Jian.... =) ....











His usual carbonara..... and my grilled sausage with rosemary potatoes....super yummy.... but cost us 29 euro ...=P
