Eastern Europe Trip - Austria

Continuation from the first post here 

Day 2

On the 2nd day we travelled to Austria, Vienna!
I really love austria. the countryside landscape and everything is so pretty and musical!!

On the way we stopped by lunch at this restaurant:

It reminds me of secret garden. 

Anyway, they had cute toilet signs haha.

A certain fried chicken dish with potatoes. the potatoes were so yummy!!!!!! 

And they serve red wine in a ... cup. interesting! and the red wine was only like 3 bucks??

After lunch we headed to Schonbrunn Palace!

The skies were gloomy and threatened to rain!!! Downer.
Couldn't take photos inside the museum but it was bustling with tourists! super crowded.

People were having wedding photoshoots...

Family photo!

I can neverrr get the correct exposure on my instax. le sigh.

After the palace, we headed for the vienna city tour

Gloomy gloomy skies :((

Just as we were walking around the boulevard..

We spotted a protest conducted by students!! Right outside the parliament building.

Interesting. I presume its about censorship etc. Being suaku singaporeans who have never even witnessed a single protest, everyone started snapping photos. 

And spotted this cutie in the garden:

Shooooo cutezz

Continuing on our city tour:

Vienna is a city of music!
This violinist super zai playing her violin and skating at the same time~

Funny street artist #2

Whole day raining :((

Dinnered at this italian restaurant which had super long waiting time but awesome food!!

Salmon cream soup with a generous serving of salmon

My prawn pasta~~

Headed back to our lovely hotel. It was the prettiest hotel of the lot!! Schonbrunn park hotel or smth

Okays end of day 2!!! mad long post hahaha.

Randomness & Earl Grey Cupcakes

Recently I've been on many emotional roller coasters, dealing with misunderstandings, drunk people, and more.
At least a major miscommunication has been cleared up this morning. 

Have been doing alot of random things in my free time too.

My favourite snack from Meidiya:

Chocoball! Fell in love with it when i first went to Japan on exchange during Sec 3.

Finally got my arts camp notebook from grace yesterday hee. pretty pretty! Don't quite fancy the shirt though.

And because I had a free day today, decided to bake some cupcakes after a mad long baking hiatus (Maybe 1 year?)
Decided to try some Earl Grey cupcakes with lemon buttercream frosting :) 
Recipe from here:

I swear I'm using the wrong kind of tray for my cupcakes. 

Mad yummy lemon buttercream frosting!!

Okay I suck at doing the frosting. Have no idea why its no ugly HAHAH nv as long as it tastes good. 

Next up on my list's Salted caramel cupcakes :)

Am so lazy to blog about Europe hahaha!
