I didn't bring Mackage down jacket with me and I think I am always chill-resistant under excitement while traveling in Europe!!!! ^O^

Casa Mila

I didn't expect to find Marni in Spain but we did...and I think it is the destiny. 


Why? 


We are actually looking for another store which only Madrid has it now. The location : Career del Procenca 304 is now MARNI!!! I was surprised and ecstatic. Hubby even find his down jacket there. 


Wait, you asked: "Down Jacket?" 


Yes, that's right. The only store carries Marni Man's collection in Spain. Hubby is now over the top as that Marni down jacket is not just a down jacket, the design is like a collage mixed of quilted down, jersey/cotton. Therefore,  the look is extraordinary and it is on sale that we probably won't see another man wearing the same thing while we are back in USA. lol..

You can really smell the ketchup while standing there! 




Travel with 3 kids' isn't easy but we managed very well. We actually visited a lot of places and I uploaded like 200 pictures on FB already. Tomorrow, we are going to Montserrat!!


Gotta go get my rest.

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

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


12/25 11 A.M. Arrival in Amsterdam



 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 nutrition before big adventure is let them eat something familiar and something from home. ^O^



 {Ilona is always grumpy...}

Inside setting of Nooch... cozy and exotic... lol...

My super "wake-up" drink anytime!!

Another life style shops "Fair Fair".



 Ah, bed? no, Sofa, whatever, .....again... jet lag... no, I can't sleep just yet!! @_@




You would want to go up and down in this 2 levels shops to make sure that you didn't miss anything cute. 


We wouldn't say we have been to Amsterdam if we didn't pay a visit on Wallen (Red light district).
