Extended Holiday

Now we don’t encourage parents to do this, but since Mr. Hubby only had his off day after the Easter school holiday and the Muslim month of celebration, Eid’Ul Fitri three days happened right after the holiday, we informed the school that my daughter wouldn’t go to school for that three days. I don’t know if she understood it but she was looking so happy when we woke up a little bit late than usual (Her school alarm is always set off at 7 am)

Train ride to the unplanned destination.

So we figured since my autistic daughter likes to stay so long on the train ride, we decided to spend most of this day on the train and hop on and off to three different stops Bern, Basel, and Zurich train stations just to stretch our legs. She wasn’t pleased we got off the ride. But it has to be done. If not, our old legs and bum would be numb from sitting too long. Lol.

The initial plan was to get the rest of my daughter Fruitea’s favorite drink from this shop where we ordered and thought they already had it in hand. Unfortunately, when we arrived at Pasar Indonesia, Mohlin they said they ordered just a few days ago when we had been waiting for beverages for months. We weren’t that disappointed despite the three hours ride to find this place. We felt grateful that some of the things we couldn’t get anywhere else in Geneva, they have them at the shop.

The shop was situated in an isolated place, but the GPS never failed us.

We were greeted by 2 friendly middle-aged women. There are rows of food racks on the left side of the store and other non-food sections on the right side when you walk into the shop. I was pleased to find Belinjo in the snack area. Bruneians called it Tangang. It would be nice if, after you fry them, you mix them with butter and honey like this recipe. A great snack to nibble while watching your favorite K-drama overnight. Lol.

Our next stop was the PUMA outlet, Oensingen. Unfortunately, we have not found the Spongebob edition. They provide just a tiny corner of the section. How can that be? We expected much from a place this big. Hmph.

Our last trip of the day was to have our bellies full at IKEA, Lyssach. The furniture mall was not as crowded as in Geneva so it was a pleasant, peaceful late lunch.

The search for my daughter’s PUMA sneakers continued today. We went to the other design factory, Fish Fashion in Schonwerd. A really confusing route to get there. Even though Mr. Hubby was here twice, he wasn’t sure 😀

Yet, we couldn’t find the sneaker. Our bellies were groaning by the time we ended the long search. So we concluded this trip by getting our lunch at Singapore Restaurant in Zurich. I guess this is only a halal Malay restaurant. If you ever come here I recommend you the Laksa. It’s delicious!

How To Have The Best Winter Day

Winter is one of the best times to enjoy the fantastic weather and snow. There are endless activities you can indulge in in winter that can make the time magical. So, if you are looking to make the most out of your winter day this season, you are in the right place. 

Here is everything you must know about having the best winter day. 

1. Start Your Day With A Hydrating Beauty Routine 

Many people forget that the key to having a great winter day is a fantastic skincare routine. The winter air is dry, and many of us wake up with dry and patchy skin. Because of this, you must always start your day by doing a hydrating beauty routine. 

Exfoliate your face, use a cleanser, and then moisturize it. Be sure to use a moisturizer on your body to give all your skin the same amount of love. It will help you throughout the day as you will not have to worry about dry skin when you go out. 

2. Move Your Body 

After you are done with your beauty routine, you can move your body to warm it up. Run on a treadmill if you have one in your home or go for a jog outside. It will help with blood circulation and keep your body warm all day even on the worst winter day. 

You can run for as long as you like, but do it for a minimum of fifteen minutes. Once your skin and body are taken care of, it is time to engage in fun winter activities to have the best day. 

3. Go Ice Skating or skiing

The Winter season means that you will have many local ice skating rinks in your area. Take advantage of them and go with your friends or significant other. It is one of the best winter activities that offer a lot of fun and bonding. 

Ice skating will also help you warm up your body again as it is exerting despite the ice. You can also learn ice skating as a new skill during the winter months. 

My last year winter activity was going on a trip to see the beautiful mountain near Gstaad, Switzerland. I’ve read that it is known for its ski and cross-country slopes and winter hiking trails.

4. Bake Cookies 

The best part about baking cookies is that you will have something warm to eat, and your home will smell fantastic. It is one of the best winter activities to do with your kids on a long snow day if you are a mother. It will keep the little ones busy, and you will bond on another level. 

Of course, if you have friends coming over, you can bake cookies for them too and make some hot chocolate. The Winter season is all about foods that warm not just the stomach but also the heart. 

These are the top four ways you can have the best winter day. Be sure to indulge in these activities and make the most of this winter season. Don’t forget to do your beauty routine to show some love to your skin so it can stay supple all winter.
