Chillax lang sa Amsterdam

Una ko palang nakita si Amsterdam, na-fall nako kaagad. So, as I promised myself na I shall return ditey, I did nga! And I did it with my travel buddies Angelo, Michael and Daryl! Chika ko sa inyo ang mga details, bet!?

If you can recall my last post, we had a party night before this trip, so imaginin niyo nalang kung gano pa kabasag ang mga lolo’t lola niyo. Our trip was 0700H and since may masalimuot na akong experience in missing a flight (na ichichika ko sa inyo soon pag handa nako, chos!), 0400H palang maligalig na ang diwa ko. Good thing London Southend Airport was just 20-30 minutes away so less stress drilon narin for us.

The flight is more or less an hour only. So pagkasakay at pagkaupo palang sa plane, bumorlog na ang mga bakla. Kebs nang mabangga bangga ang headsung sa mga lumalakad, kelangan magenergize for the lamyerda. And then, I heard this magical conversation while half asleep: Mike and Daryl talking about their spectacles

Mike: *examining Daryl’s glasses* sabay tanong ng mga kung ano-anong details na di ko na masyadong maalala exactly
Daryl: Sumasagot naman sa mga tanon
Mike: Ayyy ang mahal naman bakit ito binili mo?
Daryl: eh AFFORD ko eh!
Aca: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

Lol. I love my rich friends! Hahahahaha! Parang nagising ang natutulog kong diwa sa word na AFFORD! Anak ni Lucio Tan levels pala itong si Daryl bakit pa tayo naka easy jet kung ganern!?

Pagdating sa Schipol Airport, ayun sabay sabay muna kaming sumipol sabay halik sa lupa charoooooot! Schipol is the Netherlands International airport so ayun riot sa mga tao, flights and before pa umaura, we had to energize so we had to look for an authentic resto to feel na nasa Holland na nga kame, and siyempre anong fastfood pa ba ang best na makakatawid gutom program samen kung BURGER KING! Please don’t judge us, BK Netherlands parin yun so isipin nalang natin na legit na Holland food nga itey.

Bukod sa Amsterdam, Holland is also known for their Tulips. So, first on our magic list of very fortunate events is going to Keukenhof kung saan may pa-flower festival daw. I read from their site na the garden showcase ends May 17 but the tulip field would still be open to all so ayun puuuush kahit May 18 kame andooners. From the airport, we chose to get a taxi instead of a bus to save time which cost us 60 euros – 1 way (kyohala bear!) pero pampalubag loob nalang na mercedes and naka suit talaga yung driver and it took us only 20 minutes to get there versus an hour by bus. Yun nga lang, when we got there, isang napaka laking NGANGA! Chinarot ako ng website! They can’t let us in kasi nga daw tapos na and the fields where the tulips were supposed to be ay lumarga narin! Kalurkey! Walang napuntahan ang 60! I remembered, may castle pa daw right in front of this, so we tried to visit that instead.

Picture nalang masabe lang na andun nga kame.
Savior din yung si Keukenhof Castle, kahit papano nagkasaysay ang buhay namen at kahit papano, may nakita kaming legit Holland Tulips

The castle was actually free! Or feeling ko naawa lang yung ate samin kasi mukhang desperada na kame na may patutunguhan yung lakad namen. So ayun nga, she allowed us to tour around the castle for free. There were actually art pieces inside pero wag na daw kaming abuso kaya pwede lang daw namin silipin from the windows. lol.

It WAS a castle, but now pang mga ganap ganap nalang siya, ideal for weddings because of the really big garden and nice landscaping. Avail nalang kami sa pictures para naman masulit! Super inavail ko!

After 12 hours of walking around, napagtanto namin na naikot na namin ang kasulok sulukan so we have to go to the City Centre and check in at magpahinga.

Jumujulanis morisette when we got there so mega rest + nood muna kame ng GGV hanggang tumila at makisama ang weather

After a while, nagutom narin ang mga alaga namin, so no choice kundi lumabas at maghanap ng malalafur. We went around Rembrandtplein, and we found this Japanese buffet na sa umpisa ay namahalan kame pero nanaig ang gutom and since buffet, avail!
IMG_2036 IMG_2037Shabu shabu. It was hard to miss this since ang ganda ng ambiance. And, level up ang pagoorder since they just give you a tablet, and then browse browse ka lang, choose what you like and your order automatically goes to the kitchen and just after a few minutes, ayan! Anjan na!
IMG_2035 IMG_2038And since unli ang chibugan, order pa more ang labanan! To the point na wala ng espasyo at tuloy tuloy ang buhos ng lafur– na of course nawala na ang isip ko para i-document pa dahil nagrarally na mga alaga ko.

The dishes were really good! Kaso mejo emgoldex ang mga presyo ng drinks to order nalang kame ng order ng sabaw as panulak, and nung no choice na, tyaga nalang sa laway. lol.

After the sumptous meal, gala gala muna ang labanan. Of course, Amsterdam is known for their Dams so dun ang unang aura ng mga bakla. We also took them sa Famous red light district para makita nila in person ang mga sikat na sikat na mga kababaihan sa bintana.

 One thing I love about Amsterdam is the transport system is really easy to understand. First form of transpo ng mga tao is their bicycles. Magsasawa ka sa mga bike at kung may balak ka man magnakaw eh good luck naman sayo kasi parang grand prize sa lotto yung dami ng mga bike sa sulok. Of course, dahil team tamad kame, we opted to get their travel ticket. It was just 25 euros good for 3 days and you can use it all around the city mapa metro or tram and some selected ferries. Sulit na sulit at talagang inavail namin kahit konting lakaran lang ang pagitan, push parin ang tram!

Talon na tayo sa Day 2 pictures!

We took them to the famous Zaanse Schaans windmills which was outside Amsterdam so di na sya covered nung travel ticket pero kebs na kasi cheapangga lang naman yung 6euros return.

 May dadaang dinosaur. Waley

Di na namin masyadong inavail ang pageexplore ng mga museums dahil sabi nga ni Mike, “Chill chill” lang ang peg namin dito. In other words, tipid tipid din pag may time hahaha. Plus side is, they have a lot of parks where you can literally just lie down and relax and have an impromptu photoshoot
