Rotterdam [Just For Two]

13 Aug

Sometimes, even if it’s just the two of us, can make a perfect day…

Let’s imagine being in this beautiful quiet city Rotterdam, Holland.

Walk down the street to find this nice cafe by the river, with a name I can’t even pronounce. For coffee and a big brunch on this chilly day.

Guessing if “suiker” means sugar?

Kelvin having fun with the foam, “Hohoho… I’m Santa…”

Eat while watching boats back and forth through the canal.

Visit the tower where Jackie used to perform his stunt in “Who I Am?”

Scream at some random ads…

And walk on an almost empty street. Aimlessly.

Just to find the modern “tree house”!

We have seen it quite a few times on travel channel, but it’s such a surprise to find it here :)

Look for No. 70 and decided to go in for a look!

You have to custom made every piece of furniture, as normal one just won’t fit.

Imagine sleeping in a tree house… We all have that kinda dream when we were children, didn’t we?

Imagine having a studio to work on paintings, musics and books…

I still have that dream in me… 

Gazing out of the window…

And suddenly realized, “Kelvin, this house belongs to us… Big tall Dutch couldn’t fit in!”

“You’re right babe!”

It’s like a observation deck, where we can study people who walks by… from top.

It’s romantic to stay here, although it is not practical at all. Space is not fully utilized and action is limited. But it’ll be fun though, if we can just stay over for a week or two…

Look for a river side cafe to have a drink.

Talk about work, life, love and dreams.

Notice that there’s no fence between the river. (Maybe Dutch kids are truly discipline…)

Walk idly around… Breath and feel the land.

Make silly jokes…

And amazed by all the nice buildings that could not be found in my home land.

Take it slow.

And impress husband with my photography skill…

Play with ducks…

And gaze at the giant dildo?

Have some sweet stuff and indulge in the goodness…

Oh… what’s that??

Eryn was lifted!!

Walk back to the hotel. 

Quartier Du Port (also a name I can’t pronouce). A boutique hotel with brilliant design. 

It has a glass rooftop to direct the sunlight in during the day. It has a similar one in the bathroom too. So it was so bright during the day!

Go for a night walk

Remember I was talking about there’s no fence between the river? And on that particular night, we saw a rescue operation by the police to save a drunk man from the river. I think he just accidentally walk into it. I remember him having a blanket on him, sitting on the police rescue boat and wave at us, shouting “Harlo~” :) Dutch is friendly indeed…

“That’s why I loved being with you. We could do the simplest things, like toss starfish into the ocean and share a burger and talk and even then I knew that I was fortunate. Because you were the first guy who wasn’t constantly trying to impress me. You accepted who you were, but more than that, you accepted me for me. And nothing else mattered– not my family or your family or anyone else in the world. It was just us.”  - Nicholas Sparks
