Finding Matcha in Belgium

November 11, 2016

Matcha has been my favorite beverage ever since I first tasted it. In any cafes I go to in the Philippines, that’s what I would always order. So coming here in Europe, I totally missed the green tea powdered goodness that I used to always drink. I even tried the imitation Matcha powdered drinks I found in shops but it was no help. Nothing could beat an authentic match made in Japan. Luckily, the Lord may have heard my prayers…

Strolling in Belgium

It was a cold day when I decided to go out around Belgium. Still in the summer mode, I didn’t dress up properly for the weather. It was dark and cloudy in Antwerp. Typical. I spotted a quite different picture, yet familiar. I never thought that the China Town would be so near the Central Station. I decided to follow the not-so-long street and I found myself lost in an undiscovered (for me) funky square. I stopped by a cool…

Hello Paris

I just love to be explore places in a short amount of time, right? I’m really blessed to be able to join in a trip in Paris. We drove for more than 5 hours and arrived in our hotel in Vincennes at around midnight. I had a cozy little room on my own, too bad I didn’t take a photo it. Now I kind of regret it. France in night is bright, brighter than the streets of Belgium. Morning after…

After arriving in Bonn, the next day I decided to go check out the Centre, a common in any European cities and towns. I’m staying in a place quite far from the centre so I had to take the metro, called U-Bahn (oo-bahn). It was a fine warm day. I missed the sun and the warmth. As someone who lived in the Philippines and hated the sun, I never expected that I would crave for it after arriving in Europe.…

Some musings…

A lot has happened during the past 5 months. Life is full of surprises. But I’m getting back on track. I’ve met a lot of people who has helped me stand up back again and keep my faith. I am still fingers-crossed on what’s about to happen but I believe there’s something good will happen. I decided to move to Germany for the time being, knowing that I can stay here for 3 months, to prepare for university examinations. From…

A day in Lille

This would be my first actual post, finally, after weeks of having this in the drafts. A couple of Saturdays ago, I decided (out of boredom) to try going out and travel in Lille, France, a city 30 minutes away from where I live. It was cloudy and cold, perfect day to travel (I’m awesome right?). There were a lot more of beautiful buildings and classic architecture than in Kortrijk. It was fun even by just walking around and snapping photos.…
