I was looking through pics of my summer trip and then realised, hey i havent blogged about these! I think i only mentioned Milan:P I truly missed Italy and Paris and will definitely go back if i have the chance to. And cash of course:P

I know its like 2 seasons past summer  but its never too late right. Its nice to look back.hehe. And a lil reminder of what i did in case i get Alzheimers 30 years later haha

I have the tendency to korek things to blog about when i am subjected 24hours in front of my laptop doing my assignments. sigh.And making sense out of my nonsensical lab results. double sigh

Ok. Now lemme talk about my trip. or whatever bits i remember from it.hehe

From Milan we took the morning intercity train to Venice.Yes we mainly travelled by water here.

Firtst stop, Murano. Its an island famous for glassmaking as well as lampmaking. The glasses-by products were indeed breathtaking. But the locals not very much so. They werent the most friendly ppl we met mainly afraid that we would smash their glasses. Pfftt.



We were licking this huge icecream only to realise at the end it was a rubbish bin ppfftt

BURANO AHoy!!! Our FAvourite-est island of the lot!!

Famous for its lacemaking, the island also boasts the most colourful houses ive seen in my life.

The locals were amazingly friendly. Too bad we only had few hours to kill here. Was so reluctant when it was about time to leave.hehe




a house with our  national flag colours:) Must respect 😛

p1020009No it wasnt a gondola ride. its like one minus the musician and comfy seats and decors. This is a traghetto. only 50cents per ride. for cheapskates like us LOL. And we didnt go ALONG the canal. Just ACROSS  it. We just wanted a gist of a gondola-ish ride cos was  too ex:P
