Holla:);) I still have pictures from my Paris Geneva Trip:):)
Did you ever wish to go somewhere not to do anything but to just sit by the beach,look at the ocean and gaze at the blue sky? I always have that feeling:):) Such a melancholic person i am.I love to smell the grass,the ocean,the garden... well these past few weeks the feeling is quite intense..since i can't go anywhere yet,i just share this entry first.
Let's go to Nyon,Switzerland, a town by the sea and situated on beautiful rocks and cliffs. Nyon is accessible by boat from Geneva town,it will take you about 2 hrs to reach there and cost Euro 45 per adult and Euro 30 per child.
No matter how melancholic the feeling is but the food is always there:) Well this nasi goreng with telur mata was not made in Malaysia but it was cooked in Geneva,our morning breakfast before we depart to Nyon.
I used basmathi rice to make the nasi goreng,it had ikan bilis,green chillies inside.
And it was so nice to eat nasi goreng kampung with telur mata,fresh tomatoes,salad in the cold morning of Geneva.
The girls tak really fancy rice in the morning..they asked for noodles.I used maggie like noodles and made them simple clear soup.
Hmm i miss this small kitchen..we stayed there for 12 days surely a lot of memories to be remembered.
After the tummies were fulled..wallaaaaa..sudah transform..ha ha..to go to Nyon we need to go to the lake which is a 10 mins walk from our apartment.We need to check the schedule,buy the ticket from the kiosk there and wait for our boat.While doing that these the two girls pestered me to buy them sunglasses:) Dah tu tak nak yg kecik pulak ..nak yang beso ajer..pandai nak Jackie O tau:)
The lake is very beautiful..when we first came here were we like ahhh..ahhhhh..so cantik Geneva town yang facing the lake..they called it "The Lac"
Tia Mia always had fun feeding the ducks..they were tame too..if you feed them they will come out from the water to eat from your hands.
The available boat to Nyon was at 2.30pm so we had to eat our lunch first.We went to a Lebonase Cafe by the roadside to eat.
Papa and Tia.
After we were done with our lunch we went to the lake again and waited for the boat on the grass.
The boat came,we boarded the boat and as usual we ordered drink and ice creams.
We reached Nyon at 4.30pm ,we took a petite train to take us around town and the girls had second round of ice creams on the petite train.
Nyon is fulled with history and this can be seen in the architecture.Dont expect to find fancy shop and branded items here, you need to love nature and history to appreciate the city.
We walked and walked and we found one children bookshop.Tia and Mia had a good time there and the owner was super nice.I asked her to show us some colouring books so that the girls and can have activities at Nyon beach and she showed me some.The girls however took the most expensive in the shop..it was a reproduction by French Artist..i had to pay RM200 plus for 2 colouring books..adoiii:);)
These girls suka tengok orang surfing jugak..so bila nampak surfing board ni bising lah nak ambik gambar:)
One of the castle in Nyon.
Since our intention was not to do sightseeing we just went into one castle and see where will it take us.
We came out at the balcony and the view was awesome!
Gorgeous fishscales roofing..how i wish i could build a house using the this type of roofing, i love the attic windows and the chimneys too.
Without any map, direction or anything we just walk further and further until we found a gorgeous fruits and flowers's garden on the hill facing the ocean.I have posted some of the fruits pictures in my previous entry under "Bumi Indah Ciptaan Allah".
After spending sometimes at the garden,we walked down the hill and reached the beach..ahhh it was so lovely..this is where i just want to sit and do nothing.
The girls took out their new books and started colouring.
We sat there until late evening, we looked at people cycling,walked their dogs,held hands etc.
We ate our sandwiches and drink our colas on the grass..the girls took out their shoes and just ran on the grass barefoot.
It was a lovely evening in Nyon..7pm and the sky was blue.
We moved closer to the water and the girl continued they activities.
Gorgeous water and sky.
While waiting for the last boat at 9.30 pm we had our dinner at the Asian restaurant, we had prawn crackers,steamfish and prawn tomyam:):)
After the good dinner we said goodbye to the beautiful Nyon.
and waited for our boat.
By bye Nyon..we left with loves in our hearts - The End!
Anyway walaupun colouring books tu mahal but the girls justified the investment-they' ve done a wonderful job:) This is Mia with her gorgeous castle.
Tia and her "secret garden"
The Duck- My sister said i should frame it as they are beautiful..yes i think i will do that.
I posted this on my fb and ada yang cakap "rimau pink?" he he children is very imaginative and creative..The Pink Panther were beyond their time but they came out with this;)
They have many pages to colour some more..they really spent times in colouring each pages, i didn't allow them to use magic colours as it will ruin the book so they use crayons only. And Tia being a 'bigger sister' is really mengikut perintah kalau dia nampak Mia nak guna magic colour menjerit boleh dengar satu rumah " Adikkkkkk don't use magic pen mama said you will ruin the book, it will have mark at the back!!!!!" he he..Love you both:):)
