Hello fm Dusseldorf...
Weather: Very very cold.. freezing.. yikes!
Mood: Not soo good.. not too impressed with the weather to be honest.. probably i dont even know what to talk abt on this post as i am having a brain freeze lol
Peak Agenda: Well yeah.. we got into Frankfurt safely yesterday.. flight was delayed fm Sg to KLIA.. flight fm KLIA was delayed to Frankfurt and bec of that we missed our train to Dusseldorf.. oh well.. typical.. expected. But to hv to pay like 170 euros on top of what we had already paid online is a little frustrating.. Scheisse ey..
Taking ICE train was Sonia's first experience.. we thought its the best way to get to Dusseldorf.. renting a car was not an option since hb doesnt need a car to get him to and fro to the exhibition center for the next few days.. anyway when we got into frankfurt it was snowing slightly but as soon as we passed Cologne area.. we noticed that the area was covered in snow at least 8cm deep!
Long story short.. when we finally got into Dusseldorf it was snowing lightly and Sonia was like in awe lol.. it was the same when i first got to touch snow 15yrs ago hehe
Hb's sis flew in fm Vienna to Dusseldorf the very same day and has been spending every little time with little Sonia eerr except when she sneaks out while we're putting Sonia to bed to head back to her hotel.
Below are some of the pics taken fm the time we were waiting to board on the ICE train till the time when we had enough of the cold weather for today lol
Brrr.. brrrr and brrrrr.. yikes!
We hv been to Dusseldorf three times so far and our first at the Melia Dusseldorf.. the room is 'spacious' for European standards.. big buffet spread which to me is important cos it means different kinds of bread that i can enjoy hehhe
A park that is right next to our hotel.. Sonia lovessss it! this morning we woke up to -3 degree temp and we still took her to the park after brekkie.. she was running around and wasnt complaining abt the weather at all... I on the other hand was feeling super cold eventho i had like a few pcs of clothing underneath my jacket.. maybe i shud be running around like her to make myself feel warm?? No?? err
Kissing under a mistletoe tree.. hehe
Oh yeahhhh Rima.... why of all the positions do u hv to bend down like that!! eewwww what a sight hahahaha
The Rhine River promenade. Lots of tourist boats and container barges. The Rhine is the most important transport method through Germany. A lot of goods are still sent up and down this river...

Papa's little angel...
There are a few Christmas markets all around Dusseldorf.. The Christmas markets are spread throughout the City and feel very movie-like. The smell of spices and pine trees. A lot of people looking at Christmas souvenirs from hand blown glass ornaments, to paintings and wooden figurines. There are stalls selling Sausages, Crepes, Gluehwein (heated red wine with spices). There are shops selling tablecloth and bretzels. One of the Christmas markets even has a 450m2 ice skating rink. So more pictures of that in a few days time!
She went crazy over each and every merry-go-round she could see...Yep.. she will ride it at least twice..
