Amsterdam Day 3

Where are we heading toooo?

All smiling! =)

It was a really hectic morning, coupled with a cold chilly weather.
We booked online for our tour in the morning but the computer system didn't record so they shifted us to noon. We had to push forward the later itinerary to accommodate the time in between until afternoon, which isn't a lot of time at all! The bus start off at around 10.45am, reached the diamond factory, dropped us off and came to pick us up again around 11.30am.  

Blah blah blah blah blah blah..We're not even capable to buy a carat so it's really a waste of time.

Then it reached the next destination at around 11.53am and we split into 2 groups, one to Heineken Brewery, another to Van Gogh museum.

(No photos for Van Gogh cause we're in a rush! Bought some souvenirs at the shop and rushed off to catch the metro tram to reach where we are to board the bus at 12.30pm. We had our heads facing the ground as we board the bus for having to make the whole troop wait, and we're behind by 15minutes.)



We then reached the clog factory where they process and carve and paint nice clogs for you to wear. Clogs hanging upside down above for drying process for 2 weeks because woods absorbs moisture!

Colourful clogs!

Tulip of course since it's their trademark!


Then a 'cruise' to ...(I am confused about the area we are in so yeah, we took a boat across)
The weather looks real nice but it was COLD. and WINDY.

LOLS lima kaki!

We're nearing!!

Tons of food to eat here!

Herring fish

Fries, don't know what fish, FAMOUS FISH AND CHIPS, and don't know what again.

Delicious tapas with huge prawns and fried stuffs.

And a Heineken to complete my day =)


Next was Windmill, a UNESCO world heritage site which does not seem to be so because...

Erm, yeah..this is almost all you can see.

Next was the cheese factory! 

Soooooooooooooo many kinds..
(They have samples and we filled ourself there..Also we bought Stroop Waffles!) 


We walked separately thereafter upon returning to Amsterdam. As in dinner and no dinner. I, of course am on the dinner group!

I don't know who is this but since got statue just take photo lah!

Again, fatigue kicked in after a whole day of walking! Lied down on the bench for a little while.

Why am I not smiling? -.-

Dinner was at Indrapura (Indonesian Restaurant).
This one can classify 5 star restaurant since inside the ambiance already so romantic with dimmed lights, then the order part was OMGoofness. We thought we can order 3 people portions for 5 people since we're all quite full but CANNOT. Everyone must order.

One dish on average costs 20. And like previously, their menu have a should I call it 'meal set'? which has like 10 dishes on it with rice, etc and this will cost about 20+ per person as well.

Unless you have a surplus of money, eat here.  

Kuih lapis with sprinkled cinnamon costs 5-6!

Us eating, enjoying our last meal in Amsterdam while putting away the thoughts of paying the bill later!

This concludes our last day in Amsterdam.


The memories of boarding the plane the next day was even scarier.

To be continued....
