The Chewys’ Europe Honeymoon Trip: Days 20 & 21 in London/Big Ben, Borough Market, Three Michelin Stars Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, Home Sweet Home


YO chewys! Apologies for the slow update. Really exhausted after work and just nua-ed when I got home. Sacrificing my weekend to update you guys on our laaast two days in London! Ok la I also wanted to avoid the haze so I stayed at home then shunbian blog lor ๐Ÿ˜› Our Europe honeymoon travelogue has come to an end, after 14 blog posts (including this one) like finallyyy! Ok la, almost. It will end when you finish reading this post. We went to so many places on Day 20 which was the unofficial last day of our trip because we had to head to the airport immediately upon checking out the next day. The feeling was not nice at all and I couldn’t bear to leave London because it was an awfully short two full days there! :( The hubby promised that he will plan a trip to Europe again. (But duno when hor, sweetheart? I know you are reading this. LOL)


We passed by so many phone booths but I wanted to take a photo with it only on our last sightseeing day!


Big Ben! OMG, I can’t believe I walked along the same path as Jay Chou did when he was filming his “Big Ben” MV! Speaking of the King of Mandopop, I might be posting some photos and videos that we took during his recent world tour! ๐Ÿ˜€






Hehe London Eye reminded me of Singapore Flyer = Going home soon. Boohoohoo.




Visited the Westminster Abbey next where Sir Issac Newton was buried but the church was not opened when we were there.








Our visit to Borough Market was a quick one but we liked what we saw! It is London’s most renowned food market and is rich in culinary history. Taste and quality of food is not compromised here, and standards are regularly measured.










Wheatgrass juice is good for you!






We weren’t planning to do any cooking on our last night in London so we only bought chocolate fudge to munch on throughout the day and also a small bottle of white truffle oil to bring back to Singapore. McD fries with truffle oil, anyone? XD


Whoever said London Bridge is falling down deserves a good spanking. Hahaha.





The moment we decided to include London as one of our honeymoon destinations, I was very excited because I so wanted to visit Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, a three Michelin stars restaurant owned by celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay!


We made our reservations early and mentally prepared ourselves that this was gonna be our most lavish and extravagant meal for this trip! ๐Ÿ˜›


There were a few set lunches for us to choose from. Can’t remember what they were titled but misterchewy had the more expensive one. Haha.


After some warm and crusty bread, we were served our Amuse Bouche which was Ricotta infused with mint, pea foam, sliced radish, tomato, rocket oil and violets. The ricotta had a subtle minty flavor and the pea foam was light and airy. The greens provided an nice contrasting texture to the dish. On the overall, it was kinda like eating a savory mousse cake.


For my starter, I chose Chicken liver, foie gras and bone marrow crouton with artichoke, heriage apples, Perigord truffle vinaigrette mainly because of the foie gras. Liked how the chicken liver and foie gras was done while the flavors of this dish were accentuated by the truffle vinaigrette. However, I found the crouton too hard.


The husband had Pressed foie gras, smoked and confit duck with Tasmanian mountain pepper, pickled pears and pain dโ€™รฉpices.



I had a choice of fish, rabbit or duck for my mains and I settled for Roasted rabbit loin with Bayonne ham, confit leg, Puy lentils, roasted hazelnuts and pickled mustard seed because I really wanted to try something different. I wouldn’t say that I particularly enjoyed this dish although the rabbit loin was quite tender. The combination of mustard and hazelnut didn’t work quite well for me I guess.


I could tell that misterchewy enjoyed his Costwold lamb and spring vegetable “Navarin,” best end, braised shank, confit breast and shoulder with wild and new season garlic. Alright, I know it’s a mouthful. Simply put, he ate various parts of the lamb and he gave two thumbs up.



Pre-dessert drink! Can’t remember (my memory is really bad) what fruits were used but it was a very delicious drink and we slurped this up in no time.




This photo of misterchewy’s Coconut soufflรฉ with mandarin and lime sorbet was taken by him. Must give credit ๐Ÿ˜› It was one amazing dessert! The coconut soufflรฉ was warm, light and fragrant while the tangy sorbet balanced out the sweetness in a subtle way.


My Banana parfait, peanut butter mousse and bitter chocolate sandwich with caramelised bananas was equally awesome! It was a tad heavy and sweet but I loved it.


When I returned to our table from the washroom, our Petit Four was all ready to be devoured. It certainly looked delicate and exquisite.


The White chocolate and strawberry ice cream truffles actually made a dramatic appearance when it was served with dry ice. Basically, the strawberry ice cream truffles were encased in white chocolate. Biting into these babies made me explode with happiness!


Our gastronomical experience at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay lasted for about two hours. It could have been longer if we ate even slower I think. Total damage inclusive of wine was around SGD $400. No regrets at all! :)


After lunch, we went to the Natural History Museum and admission was free. The queue was very long and there was another queue for the dinosaur exhibition.





The husband was fascinated by what he saw but I wasn’t. Haha. So I offered to help him take photos.






We almost forgot about Platform 3/4 at King’s Cross Railway Station! *GASP* We took quite some time to locate this and there was already a long queue of Harry Potter fans waiting to take photos. We were free to borrow Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin scarves!


Hahaha of course we chose Gryffindor! ๐Ÿ˜›


The queue was waaaay longer than this! I almost wanted to give up but Harry Potter fan girl persevered.


Charleen kindly gave us some recommendations on where to go and what to eat in London. Burger & Lobster was somewhere misterchewy and I really wanted to try BUT we were not fated to eat there! First night, we missed our train and didn’t have time for dinner before Jersey Boys. Second night, we reached around 7pm after the Harry Potter studio tour and were told that we had to wait at least 2 hours!


And on our very last night, Burger & Lobster was closed for Easter weekend! FML! Sad like mad! D: D: D: We will eat at Burger & Lobster for 3 nights in a row the next time we go to London! Mark my words. LOL.


We settled for Fish and Chips at this pub called Prince of Wales.


Can’t remember who had what but we ordered London Pride and Big Ben. Errrr.. I think I still prefer Erdinger and Kronenbourg ๐Ÿ˜›


Very sad! Checked out the next morning and took the tube to the airport lo. We tried to do tax refund for one of the items we bought but couldn’t do it in London. Quite complicated so I shall not attempt to explain here.


Since we had hours before our flight, we had brunch to fill our empty stomachs!




Home sweet home YO! Sincerely hope that you guys have enjoyed following and reading all 14 of our honeymoon blog posts!

The Chewys’ Europe Honeymoon Trip: Days 18 & 19 in London/Tower Bridge, Pollen Street Social & Harry Potter Studio Tour

London Days 18 & 19

If you notice, there is no Day 17 after my post on Disneyland Paris because that day, I was stuck in bed running a slight fever. The husband made a few trips from the hotel to get my medicine, lunch, Chanel bag (LOL) and finally, in the evening, I felt better and we went to buy another Chanel and had dinner. The next morning, we got macarons from Pierre Herme and Laduree before leaving Paris for London, our final stop for our honeymoon trip!


Blame it on the super long queue at Galeries Lafayette’s Chanel store (yes I got more earrings) and we missed our train to London! Think we only missed by a couple of minutes because of the immigration officer? Was totally pissed off because he asked us many questions and wasted our time. It was very obvious that he was doing it on purpose. Had to wait for another 2 hours for the next train! >:(


You have to get the Oyster card when you are in London! It makes travelling a whole lot cheaper.


We were feeling thankful that London is one hour slower than the other countries that we visited earlier because this meant that we could still make it for Jersey Boys! I bought tickets online when we were still in Singapore. I actually felt very sad when we reached London because it meant that our honeymoon trip was coming to an end really really soon D:


We booked all our accommodation via Agoda and were quite satisfied except for this one in London! The location stated is so near the train station but it’s actually an office to pick up the keys to the apartment! The husband had to drag our luggages for a good 20 minutes before reaching Neate House.


To add fuel to the fire (yeah misterchewy was really pissed and he seldom loses his temper), we had to climb the stairs to our room.


When we walked past the bathroom, we did not notice anything amiss because the doors were closed when we walked past.



I got a shock of my life when I realized that there’s no bathroom in our room! Argh. Overlooked that this is a shared bathroom accommodation! Horror of horrors! I hate the idea of sharing a bathroom with other strangers! The thought of having to do so for the next 3 nights certainly dampened my mood.


We were kinda running out of time and took the tube to Leicester Square after putting down our stuff.


One of the things that you must do when you are in London is to watch a musical in the West End! It’s really an experience not to be missed.



Our decision to watch Jersey Boys was a last minute one. We missed them when they were in Singapore and we were glad to catch them in London!



These are the only two photos that we took inside the theatre because photography is prohibited.


A photo in front of Prince Edward theatre!


Our dinner was macarons from Pierre Herme bought earlier in the day in Paris. It was really late and we skipped dinner because the walk back to our apartment from the train station would take us quite some time. And on our way back, we realized the streets were really dark! Kinda scary and creepy.


If you think that our dinner was pathetic, you are so wrong lol. We were munching away happily like kids and finished all 7 within a matter of minutes.


Day 19 was the third last day of our trip! We tried our best to make full use of our remaining two full days in London.





On the Tower Bridge!




After a quick stroll (ok not a stroll anymore) along Tower Bridge, we took the tube to our lunch destination!



We were impressed by our dining experience at Pollen last July that we felt that the one Michelin starred Pollen Street Social warrants a visit! Of course we had a reservation :)







Colchester crab salad, pickled turnip, chilled crab cream, samphire.


Slow cooked egg, “mushrooms on toast”, crispy wild cabbage.


Roasted Cornish hake in red wine, broccoli stem, cockles, crispy quinoa, whipped artichoke.


Muntjac deer, beetroot, red onions, puree potatoes, smoked beetroot juice.


Pre-dessert palate cleanser.


Rhubarb, basil ash meringue, chantilly cream, mint oil.


Sorry I don’t have time and I’m too lazy to tell you how each dish tasted like. I’m sure you only wanna see photos anyway. LOL. But one word, “marvellous”. Ok misterchewy say one. Lololol. But really la, it was worth every pound.


We will be back!


Travelled to The Making of Harry Potter Warner Bros Studio Tour via the tube! It’s located at some faraway place, like quite ulu. Haha. We fell asleep on the tube! After lunch syndrome.. LOL. Had to take a shuttle bus when we reached the train station in order to get to the studio.


If you are planning a trip to the studio, you need to purchase your tickets online as no tickets are being sold at the studio. There are various timings so make sure you choose wisely!


We were quite early so we went into the souvenir shop!


Hedwig! I think? Haha all animals look the same to me :X


It’s really cool that wands are being sold too! We found Harry’s, Ron’s, Hermoine’s, Malfoy’s and even Voldemort’s! I think I was holding Harry’s wand. ๐Ÿ˜€


Bought a box of Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans and a mini Harry’s wand which doubles up as a pen for my brother. Some of the jelly bean flavors are quite gross. Don’t dare to try. Got booger, ear wax, vomit, dirt, earthworm, etc! Yucks!


Soon, it was time for our tour! This was the first thing we saw when we were in the queue. Harry Potter’s small little room at 4 Privet Drive! The details were so amazing. We even spotted Harry’s spectacles! Ok la, if you are a Harry Potter fan, I don’t need to explain so much. Just enjoy the photos k! ๐Ÿ˜›




























Butterbeer! *Screams* Before our trip to the studio, I was telling misterchewy that we had to drink butterbeer because it’s Harry’s, Ron’s and Hermoine’s favourite drink at The Three Broomsticks! LOL.


The drink was really damn nice! Don’t know what exactly is it. Tastes kinda like an ice cream float without all that fizziness.


4 Privet Drive! Does the image of flying cars appear in your head?










Diagon Alley! Ahhhh my favourite!

The Chewys’ Europe Honeymoon Trip: Day 16 in Disneyland Paris

Disneyland Paris

Oh yay! This post is a super duper happy one because it’s about our trip to Disneyland Paris! So far, I had visited Tokyo Disneyland with my family twice and also Hong Kong Disneyland with my university friends. Likewise for misterchewy who had also been to these two Disneylands before, so this means that we experienced the magic of our third Disneyland together, in the city of romance! :)


That morning, I woke up with a pretty bad headache but I brushed it aside, thinking that I would feel better after a while. The train ride to Disneyland Paris took about an hour and I slept all the way. When I woke up, the pain was still quite unbearable, so I popped a couple of Panadol pills on an empty stomach because I did not have any appetite to eat. Paid โ‚ฌ79 per person for entry into Disneyland and Walt Disney Studio.


This is why I love love love Disneyland! It really feels as though I’m being transported to a totally different and magical world upon stepping in.



Love walking along these streets in Disneyland! It never fails to excite me even after all these years! ๐Ÿ˜›






I was keeping a lookout for Disney mascots roaming around but misterchewy was more keen on conquering as many thrill rides as possible. The Big Thunder Mountain queue was freaking long and I think we waited for about an hour. Friends would know that I’m not the most patient person on Earth. LOL.


The ride was mild but it was kinda worth the wait, as compared to some of the other attractions in Disneyland. I reckon the Big Thunder Mountain is suitable for kids too!






Before I could suggest anything else, misterchewy dragged me to the Space Mountain ride. We have tried the other Space Mountains before and loved it! It’s the most thrilling ride in Disneyland! ๐Ÿ˜€


Needless to say, the queue was even much longer than the one for Big Thunder Mountain. Oh yeah, I mentioned earlier that I was having a headache right?!


YES! Yours truly actually survived the crazy Space Mountain 360 degrees ride with a splitting headache! In fact, I had thought for a moment that my headache went away thanks to the ride. Haha!


The Chewys accomplished Space Mountain Mission 2! ๐Ÿ˜‰





Next, we decided to check out the Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters ride.




My memory is really poor! Realized that I had experienced this same ride before in the other Disneylands!


Basically, we were supposed to shoot down some aliens and stuff. Pretty lame but I suppose kids will love this.



When we were in Paris, my mum whatsapped misterchewy that I love churros and asked him to buy some for me in Disneyland. Sadly, I don’t think churros are being sold in Disneyland Paris. We didn’t see anyone else eating it so I settled for a crusty waffle with chocolate sauce! As I was still having a bad headache, I took more pills but apart from the headache, I was feeling quite nauseous because of taking Panadol on an empty stomach earlier in the day.




Of all characters, Darth Vader was the first out of the handful of mascots that we saw in Disneyland, before the parade. Quite pathetic and I don’t even fancy Darth Vader or Star Wars. Mehhhhh. And the trend in Paris seems to be getting these autographs from these characters rather than taking photos with them. Kinda weird I would say. Tokyo Disneyland and Hong Kong Disneyland were much more happening because of all the high profile characters like Mickey, Minnie, Donald, etc, walking around.


Back view of the Disneyland castle.


At this point, I felt really weak and wanted to throw up every now and then but since we came a long way and paid so much for the tickets, I tried to force a smile and take as many photos as I could for memory’s sake. You have no idea. LOL. Told misterchewy that I felt like an old granny because I was finding somewhere to sit and rest every 10 minutes.







I seriously have no idea what’s with the husband’s act cute expression. Really unlike him. LOL.





I kept complaining that I wanted to vomit and faint, to the point that misterchewy announced that it was time to head back. But of course, I refused and told him I wanted to stay for the parade.


Since we had a bit of time to kill before the parade, we walked around Disneyland aimlessly and took more photos. It sucks to be sick. :(







The parade was scheduled to start at 5pm and about half an hour before that, the entire pavement was filled. Luckily, we managed to find somewhere to sit.


This 3 year old boy named Zack kept talking to me and he asked me a lot of funny questions! We started talking because he held on to me to balance himself as he sat down and I gave him a surprised look. He then smiled cheekily at me. Awwww..



All photos of the parade were taken by misterchewy while I took some videos. Enjoy! ๐Ÿ˜€

























We didn’t check out Walt Disney Studio in the end and went back to our hotel. The first thing I did was to throw up and that night, I ran a slight fever :( But I’m still very glad that I survived an entire day at Disneyland Paris because it’s my dream to visit all the Disneylands in the world!

The Chewys’ Europe Honeymoon Trip: Day 15 in Paris/The Louvre, Sainte Chapelle and Notre Dame

Paris Day 15

TGIF chewy chewy peeps! I can’t wait to finish blogging about our honeymoon trip because I have so much other stuff to share with you guys! Our second day in Paris was spent visting a museum and two churches. It’s not just any museum or church, mind you! Do you see the iconic triangle in the picture? ;P


Yes it’s none other than the Louvre Museum or Musรฉe du Louvre if you wanna act yi ge French. Lololol. As you can see, the weather was kinda dark and gloomy in the morning, which made it perfect for indoor activities such as… visiting the museum!


Bought tickets at โ‚ฌ11 each! Thank goodness there wasn’t any queue.


The very first thing that we did once we were inside the Louvre was to check out the famous Mona Lisa painting by Leonardo Da Vinci! Sadly, we couldn’t get anywhere near it! There was a barrier and we could only admire it from a few metres away.


The other visitors were all huddled in the other end of the room, trying to snap photographs of the Mona Lisa painting. Impossible to get a good shot, really.


The husband told me that one of his colleagues bought tickets just to look at Mona Lisa and that was it but of course we were not that extreme.






Our horoscopes!







I dared misterchewy to imitate this pose but I had to quickly stop him when he was about to raise his left arm. He not paisey I also feel paisey! LOL.



My attention span was too short and I started yawning away so misterchewy suggested we end our museum tour ๐Ÿ˜›





We were totally starving but the husband insisted on joining the queue at Angelina. Singaporeans love to queue but so does everyone else. *Gasp*


The interior of Angelina exudes elegance and charm.


Reminds me of Canele and Antoinette. *Ahem*


Here we have misterchewy pouring himself the best hot chocolate drink in the world. The Old-fashioned Hot Chocolate โ€œLโ€™Africainโ€ (โ‚ฌ7.90) is an Angelina classic and is unbelievably rich, thick and chocolatey.



Yours truly had the Omelette Angelina (โ‚ฌ16) which was expensive for just eggs, ham, cheese and mushrooms. Very yummy but not filling.



The husband went for the Seafood Risotto (โ‚ฌ26) which was not bad too!


There was absolutely no way that we would leave without having their desserts! There were so many desserts that we wanted to try but we narrowed it down to just two. The Tarte Praline Chocolat (โ‚ฌ8.70) had a good mix of praline chocolate and chocolate ganache and had a nice crunch when bitten into.


Once you step into Angelina, you must try their signature pastry, Le Mont-Blanc (โ‚ฌ8.80), other than their famous hot chocolate drink of course. For the benefit of those who don’t know what a mont blanc pastry is, it is made up of meringue, chantilly whipped cream and chestnut cream.


A pair of happy chewys! ๐Ÿ˜›


Our next stop was Sainte Chapelle, where we had to pay โ‚ฌ17 for the both of us to get in. The most famous features of the chapel are the beautiful stained glass windows.






Skipped to Notre Dame Cathedral. Surprisingly, admission is free and not surprisingly, the queue was insanely long.






Decided to call it a day and wanted to head back to our hotel but there was an anti-gay demonstration going on and many roads and metro stations were closed! We had to alight a few stations away and walked a long way back :( It was kinda scary because the available routes got lesser and we almost thought we wouldn’t be able to reach our hotel by nightfall.



We eventually did of course, and tabao-ed dinner nearby. Guess what our next post is about? Disneyland Paris! Must read! Stay tuned ok! I’m gonna have a blast this weekend! Jay Chou concert and staycation! Whoohoo! Stay connected with us on Facebook and on Instagram @missuschewy and @misterchewy ๐Ÿ˜€

The Chewys’ Europe Honeymoon Trip: Day 14 in Paris/Arc de Triomphe & Eiffel Tower

paris day 14

Bonjour chewys! Hahaha I act yi ge French ๐Ÿ˜› If you realize a different format for our blog title (it’s usually country/city), that’s because Paris was the only city in France that we visited during our honeymoon trip. We spent 4 days in this city of romance but it was actually shorter than that because I was holed up in bed on the last day being down with fever.. *Sigh* Despite this, I am still a happy girl because we went to Disneyland Paris and I got my Chanel loot! *Squeals* ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€


You know, everyday during our trip, I would tell misterchewy, “Omg today is day X liao” and as the number got bigger, I became more depressed. Day 14 meant that we had only one more week to enjoy! On the morning of day 14, we checked out of our hotel in Switzerland. Bought tickets at the bus stop and waited for the bus. Actually, we could walk about 20 minutes but with our luggages in tow, we decided against it.



This is Zurich Hauptbahnhof, otherwise known as Zurich HB, the largest railway station in Switzerland. It is also one of the busiest railway stations in the world, serving almost 3000 trains each day.


Have you heard of this phrase, “as punctual as a Swiss train”? They are indeed very very punctual, so be sure to arrive early so that you don’t miss you train!


This train is different from the ones we took previously during our trip because it is a double-decker train and the seats are a lot more comfier! We were seated on the higher level ๐Ÿ˜€



After a 4-hour train ride, we checked into Hotel Astrid Paris. I highly recommend it for its superb location. Walking distance to Arc de Triomphe and the metro station! :)



I wasn’t kidding when I said Arc de Triomphe was very near. We walked there but we took longer than expected to actually reach there because you can’t just cross the road to get to Arc de Triomphe. We had to go by some underground path and there were so many exits, we ended up at the wrong places many times!


I was pretty pissed by then because there was no escalator, only stairs and boy, I hate climbing the stairs. So we finally decided to seek directions from the people working at the metro station. Should have asked earlier right? Lol.


Admission to Arc de Triomphe costs โ‚ฌ8 per adult and the queue was well-contained underground.


The Arc de Triomphe was built to honour soldiers who fought selflessly and died for France in the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars.


The inner and outer surfaces of the Arc de Triomphe are inscribed with the names of all French victories and generals.


Tomb of the Unknown Soldier beneath Arc de Triomphe.






Went up to top of Arc de Triomphe!



Spotted Eiffel Tower in the distance! It looked quite close because we zoomed in quite a bit ๐Ÿ˜›



Yes, Eiffel Tower was where we were headed for next! Do you know that it’s the tallest structure in Paris? And while we were there, we had to take many many photos! We reached in the evening and stuck around till night to watch the tower light up :)








We waited and waited, for what seemed like eternity and to our amazement, the tower finally lit up in a beautiful shade of gold. But this was not the best part!



Ok this is the best part! Video was taken off YouTube because the quality of ours is not fit for viewing lol. The Eiffel Tower sparkled when we were making our way to the train station! Very beautiful sight! You can fast forward to 0.54s in the video :)


Dinner was at Leon de Bruxelles! Had been wanting to try it ever since my friend recommended it to me :) This photo was taken when we left. The queue was actually quite long when we were waiting for a table!






Yes, this place specializes in mussels and it’s served in various ways.


The husband chose his mussels with cream and bacon which was delish!



Dinner was an extremely satisfying one and both of us felt very happy! ๐Ÿ˜€ Till the next post, chewys! Connect with us on Facebook and on Instagram @missuschewy and @misterchewy :)

The Chewys’ Europe Honeymoon Trip: Day 13 in Switzerland/Jungfraujoch


Greetings my beloved chewys! This will be our last post on Switzerland! Hurray! Again, we booked a tour with Viator and this time to Jungfraujoch. This place is definitely a must-visit for any traveller planning a trip to Switzerland because it is the only way to experience being on top of Europe, at more than 4000m above sea level. No trip to Switzerland is ever complete without a trip to Jungfraujoch! ๐Ÿ˜‰


I think we were given about 40 minutes to take photos, buy souvenirs and do whatever business that we had to do during our short stopover at Interlaken.



This shot totally cracked us up big time. It’s either I’m really too heavy or misterchewy couldn’t handle my weight. I also wanna add that I was carrying my bag which was quite heavy. Lololol.



On board the railway train! We had to take two different trains and we spent more than 2 hours travelling, which was really quite tiring.


Enjoyed the beautiful views on the way up!


Just look! Breathtaking or what!



The husband commented that these houses look like gingerbread houses with cream on top. Hahaha ๐Ÿ˜›




We alighted at Eigerwand railway station as we were given about 5 minutes to snap photos.


Isn’t this mad pretty?! I could just stand there and look at this forever but of course we only had 5 minutes. LOLOLOL.



At Eismeer railway station.


Eismeer translates to ‘sea of ice’. Gorgeous view of the glacier.


We were disappointed that we were given only about a couple of hours on The Jungfrau! It is the third highest mountain of the Bernese Alps and it is very very steep. This photo was taken after we had our yummy lunch at the cafeteria! :) But this is not the highest point yet!




Dont see us look like very steady like that.. We were totally freezing in the cold! The wind was blowing straight into our faces and we just couldnt wait to get back indoors!




During our trip, we were crazy over buying snow globes to add to our small humble collection whenever it snowed and we were thrilled to see this ginormous thing! ๐Ÿ˜€


Inside the Ice Palace!










We started to panic when we realized we were running out of time to meet the tour guide at the designated area because this was the highlight of the trip! So no jump shots this time. Hahaha.


I posted this photo not for you to laugh at me hor, but to show you how freaking windy it was on the top of Jungfrau! I was like.. Ahhh my hair my hair!


Mandatory shot with the Swiss flag! :) This is our only one without all the extra ppl behind us. LOL.


A kiss from my favorite boy on top of Europe! :333






One last photo before we ran down (the stairs la duh) to meet the rest to board the train!







When we finally reached Interlaken, we were greeted by a beautiful view of the north face of the Eiger.



Thanks to a lovely Singaporean young couple who helped us with this shot! We started chatting happily and shared each other’s travel plans while on our journey back to Zurich :)


Hehe that’s all folks! Hope you enjoyed our Switzerland travelogues! Stay connected with us on Facebook and on Instagram @missuschewy and @misterchewy ๐Ÿ˜€

The Chewys’ Europe Honeymoon Trip: Day 12 in Switzerland/Zurich


Hello chewys! Here’s a relatively shorter travelogue on day 12 of our honeymoon trip spent in Zurich, Switzerland. The husband booked a half day city tour, which we felt wasn’t really necessary. LOL. Waste money only. It’s not that difficult to navigate around Zurich, at least that’s what I feel cuz misterchewy’s sense of direction and navigations skills are quite good ๐Ÿ˜›


As the city tour was scheduled to start only in the afternoon, we took a leisurely stroll from our hotel in search of breakfast before doing a bit of shopping.


We walked damn far before spotting Bรคckerei Walter Buchmann! *Heaves a sigh of relief* The pastries were really good but mine was too sweet and misterchewy helped me finish it up. ๐Ÿ˜›


Love shopping? You gotta stop by Bahnhofstrasse, one of the world’s most expensive and exclusive shopping avenues. You will find various luxury brands and also shops selling jewellery and watches.





Lake Zurich is behind me!




Asked misterchewy to help me carry my bag while I adjust the camera on the tripod. Got the metrosexual look or not? LOL.


We went into the Grossmรผnster, a Romanesque-style Protestant church and is one of the three major churches in Zurich. Photography is not allowed inside the church.



Looks like a piece of vandalism done by someone who was trying to be funny. It says, “Human Charger”. LOL.


We walked to Sihlquai Bus Terminal for the afternoon city tour and our first stop was Zurich Harbour. Look closely, do you spot the word “Sentosa” anywhere in this photo? ๐Ÿ˜›


Next, we took the cogwheel train!




Passed by The Dolder Grand which is a 5 star luxury-class City Resort. The rates of a superior double room start from at least about SGD800 per night. We were told that many celebrities stay in this hotel. There were some female teenagers seen hiding in the lorry, apparently waiting to mob their idols. Haha.


Back at Lake Zurich! Told you that we didn’t need the city tour ๐Ÿ˜›




Ok to be fair, this experience of sailing across Lake Zurich was quite a novel one because cars, vans and coaches were also being ferried! The other tour members were also very excited and hurriedly got off the coach to snap photos.







We continued to Adliswil for an aerial cable car ride to Felsenegg at 800m and the ride was quite steep. Someone asked the tour guide what if the cable car stops halfway, to which the tour guide replied, “Don’t worry it’s made in Switzerland” and everyone laughed albeit a little nervously. Hahaha.



The tour ended and we scrambled to find somewhere to settle our dinner! Decided on Restaurant Swiss Chuchi because misterchewy wanted to eat cheese fondue and rosti ๐Ÿ˜€


We chose to sit outdoors for that shiok factor eating hot cheese fondue in the cold!


Ordered a cheese fondue, raclette rosti and two bottles of Erdinger! Our fondue contained wine. Really shiokkk! ๐Ÿ˜›





We were really satisfied with our awesome dinner and walked back to our hotel! Stay tuned to our next post on Jungfraujoch! Connect with us on Facebook and on Instagram @missuschewy and @misterchewy :)
