About Me

I have done a lot of things in my life and have also worked in many different jobs to make a living and to experience life. This blog is just some of my musings, sometimes funny, sometimes inspirational, sometimes sad, sometimes angry, sometimes simple but all the time, it's just me.

Last Day in The Netherlands

Arrived in The Netherlands this afternoon and decided to return the rental car 1 day early and use other transportation to the airport tomorrow morning.

So, went to Schipol to return the Avis car, a Hyundai I30 which is been our faithful companion for the last 2 weeks or so.

Then we had our friends pick us up and we went for a nice dinner by the Amstel river somewhere in a nice area of Amstelwein.

The restaurant is in one of these old farmhouses by the river which dates back 450 years or so. During those days, as the boats laden with supplies were too heavy to row, they were pulled by horses on the banks.

The restaurant was really nice and we started with a Kir Royale and then had a good white wine and lots of water with our meal.

After the meal, we went to their home nearby to say our bye to their lovely dog Caya who was so happy to see us again.

Then had to return my Shell phone card as well as send some books over, so got a colleague who lives nearby to drop by and collect stuff from us.

Our room in The American Hotel, an old hotel near the museums in The Netherlands was on the 1st floor by a tram lines and I think every tram or at least 5 different tramlines passed by every few seconds.

Got up early enough the next day, said our good bye's to Amsterdam and then took our ride to the airport rather early around 8:15am.

Will take sometime to get back to Kuala Lumpur and then to Miri, but home sweet home in a day or so.

Take care and be well.

It was a long trip.

Remember about 2 cab drivers looking for us at the same time.
