Day 5, Munich

After walking for more than 17km in Paris city on the last day in Paris, we returned to the hotel with utter contentment and exhaustion. Minutes before we reached hotel, we received an email from Air France informing that our Paris-Munich flight the next morning (10.25am) was cancelled. But they had scheduled another flight itinerary to bring us to Munich (Paris-Geneva-Munich).

It was during situation like this that we really appreciated our eventual decision of staying in a good hotel (including services & location) instead of the original intention of booking an airbnb apartment.

The hotel arranged a taxi to send us to airport and we paid €65 for the very smooth ride. It’s pretty expensive but definitely worth it (not that we had other transport mode choices at 4am).

We’re mentally prepared for a chaotic situation at Charles de Gaulle airport due to the flight cancellations & changes. But no, it’s very calm everywhere. There’s a queue at the check-in counter but it’s a normal one (about 5-6 travellers ahead of us). The boarding area was in quite a state of commotion though as some passengers’ boarding pass could not be scanned (including hubz) and there’re passengers who came for the wrong flight (boarding gate was changed at the last minute).

Apparently some of our seats were messed up. It took 1 passenger to realise that his seat was taken by someone else which led to the “ultimate discovery”. Ended up 7-8 of us were all occupying one another’s seats and none of us (except for the first one) realised it. But we all took it very well and had a good laugh over it 😄 Guess we’re all just thankful that we’re able to carry on with our journey despite the massive strike nationwide.




This ended our first day in Munich 💕

CB Flowers

Have always been into plants and flowers. Besides the regular visits to nursery for plants shopping, I would buy fresh cut flowers every other week as I like our home to be decorated with plants & flowers and filled with floral scents.

So going through circuit breaker period would mean no flowers for at least a couple of months. So at the start of CB, in early April, made an online order of 2 floral arrangements and was very happy with what were delivered.

Was addicted to having a variety of lovely flowers around the house, so ordered some items to DIY a few more arrangements.

Café during CB

So glad that we got a nice espresso machine last year. It made our stay-at-home days of 3 months a very nice one. While most people found it stifling, we enjoyed our home, especially with the continuous supply of coffee and food at our own cafe corner. I was too busy exploring recipes to feel bored 😄

Sparkling Brunches

Enjoying a long brunch on Saturday over some bubbly has become something we looked forward to after a week’s work at home.

Circuit Breaker SG

I am finally back. Have been working from home for more than 3 months, even before the partial lockdown (we called it Circuit Breaker). Staying home 24 hours every day did not make me any freer. My enthusiasm in cooking went in full bloom.. not that I had a choice but I am definitely not complaining.

Like any one else in Singapore or rather, all over the world, staying home is our way of contributing to the society.

The 2 months of CB had also given me a good chance to spend more time in my floral interest. I used to buy fresh flowers for our home every other week but due to CB, it was not possible. So I ventured into preserved & dried flowers.

Hubz loves Korean food so a couple of Korean treats for him.

Besides salads, grain bowls, fried rice/vermicelli, cream soups which were the usual items in our every day’s lunch & dinner menu, these are some of the creations on weekends during the 2 months of Circuit Breaker (mainly local fare) …
