Eurotrip: Luzern, Switzerland (Day 1).

I am getting back on track with blogging! Gonna abruptly jump to Switzerland (which was actually the second last country that we visited). For our Amsterdam experience, read here.

Am gonna start the day with a cute photo of us wtf.

Actually we spent the first half of the day in the bus, because we were headed from Florence, Italy! When the tour guide announced that we were going to stopover somewhere in Switzerland for lunch before we continued on to Luzern, I let out an inward groan as most of our lunch stopovers were at rest stops/ automobile stations-- which aren't actually renowned for great food. So with heavy footsteps I trudged down the bus...

Glorious sights greeted us inside (and there was also free wifi wtf):

Everything looks so much more yummier as compared to Marché in Malaysia. -_-
And tasted much better too. *dark*

Though I shouldn't be surprised, because even Marché Singapore taste leaps and bounds better than the one in Malaysian one. Malaysia, Y U NO keep high standards!

Trying to take an act-cute photo, but ended up looking like I was shoving the fork into my nose FML.

Some free-style salad (they charged by weight, if I am not mistaken). Must be Teeny's one, because she is a salad homie 24/7. -_-

Roasted chicken and German sausage. I think we ate more than a dozen roast chickens on this trip. -__-

Love this candid photo of my parents that I sneakily took on my iPhone! My dad will always be my mom's baby, haha.

I am a sucker for any form of gray basics and anything with stripes, so it was a no-brainer that I would fall in love with this AZORIAS sweater!

I actually wanted to wear this sweater much earlier in the trip, but I was forbidden to do so. -_- The reason being, Europe is known to have extremely stringent rules on counterfeit goods, and my mom insisted that I will be thrown into jail if I wear this sweater with its pearl-encrusted double-C (i.e. Chanel's logo) WTF.

Which actually is not too far-fetched a story, because Teeny has been stopped before in a Chanel boutique in Singapore for wearing the 'Coco is dead' necklace!

 She was interrogated by the Chanel staff for quite some time before they were satisfied that 'Coco is dead' is a whole different brand altogether, and is NOT a counterfeit good. Phew.

So that's the reason I wore this double-C sweater to Switzerland (which struck me as the most laidback country, plus there are no Chanel boutiques there) instead! Just to keep the story straight, I was not captured in Switzerland wtf.

Live on the edge wtf-- jumping a little too closely to the pond!

Jing's Prada skirt. My sisters are so fancy wtf. But actually we got it in a Prada warehouse in Hong Kong, the skirt was 90% off I think??

While walking back from the pond (it is some historical monument but I wasn't paying attention wtf), we saw a strange figure who was grabbing everyone's attention! He had a full-on Red Indian like costume, and everyone from our tour group unabashedly ran up to him to take photos.

Including my mom. -___-

His hat is cooler than yours.

Even his bike is not spared from the Red Indian details!

Remember I said here that we kept on photobombing each other for fun? I found more photobombing evidence. -_-

Being the Asians that we are, we were really craving some Asian food! So we ended the day with our first Asian meal since the start of the trip...
