After 15 hours straight no-sleep, still shopping in Amsterdam!!

Photos all look like postcards in Europe.  Don't you think so?

 Soap souvenior for my dearest friend, Cathy. 
Love the crisp air in the morning when it is actually not cold at all. 
There aren't many cute shops open on Christmas Day in Amsterdam but this is one still open and called "Leafde"!!

Everything displayed and sold in this store is so soothing that you almost want to change your life style. You want to burn bee wax candles, replace your plastic/metal containers to felt wool ones instead and basically, you would want to try to live with a sustainable life. lol.

{Jet lag.... so sleepy,.... no... I can't go to sleep yet..... lol..}
Can you tell I didn't sleep for 20 hours straight already?!!!

After a walk of 1 hour, we are so ready for our first meal/lunch in Amsterdam... "Nooch" an Asia Fusion restaurant. lol... What can I say, travel with kids, the best bet to make sure they eat and replenished with enough nutriti…
