Brussels...the heart of Europe

View all 40 photos...
went to Brussels for a day trip. actually the main purpose is to apply Visa at Slovak Embassy. why should i go to Slovakia? the reason is we will have case study in Nitra, Slovakia for two weeks. starting from September 2, until September 14. the sad story is, becoz it is a comprehensive program, spouse is not allow to go....
saw from internet that we (Malaysia) have the agreement with them. so no need to apply Visa. sent them an email before, asking them about the recent condition. the officer replied that i need to come with several documents and photo for the VISA. so all of us (my colleagues) decided to go together on thursday with Evert our secretariat.
took about 2 hours in the embassy and then went to Brussels Central for lunch. In Brussels, there are a lot of Muslims and Halal foods. Don't worry about where to pray and to eat. about 350 mosques located around Brussels (told by the local people) . but, don't expect that we will see same kind of mosque like in Malaysia. sometime we cannot differentiate between a mosque and a house.
too much talking....maklumla baru abis peksa masa edit nih...and baru jer dapat balik duit from Slovak Embassy becoz they made a mistake. actually we as Malaysian, no need to apply Visa to enter Slovakia. how lucky to be a Malaysian....

Grand Place
The Grand Place, with its ornate baroque and gothic guild houses, is usually the first port of call for most visitors to Brussels and one of the most beautiful squares in Europe. Built as a merchants market in the 13th century, it serves as the center of the city and is a great place to experience Belgian hospitality at one of the many terrace cafes dotting the charming square. It also serves as a venue for numerous concerts and events throughout the year and during the warmer months is adorned by a vibrant, daily flower market.

Manneken Pis
This famous statue of a little boy peeing in a fountain is a perfect representative of the irreverent Belgian humor. The unique Brussels icon has been amusing visitors on the corner of Rue de L’Etuve & Stroofstraat since 1619. Over time it has become a tradition for visiting heads of state to donate miniature versions of their national costume for the little naked boy. The wardrobe of Mannekin Pis can be seen at the Brussels museum and includes over 760 outfits – even an authentic Elvis jumpsuit.

Galeries St Hubert
This gorgeous, glass roofed arcade in the center of town, lined with cafes, theaters and luxury stores has the distinction of being the first shopping arcade in Europe. Built in 1847 and recently renovated, the Royal Galleries (Galerie de la Reine, du Roi and du Prince) are one of the most astonishing places to visit in Brussels.

Keukenhof, Lisse - Holland

View all 52 photos...


In 1949 the then mayor of Lisse, Mr. W.J.H. Lambooy, together with ten leading bulb-growers conceived the idea of a permanent annual open-air flower exhibition. Their eyes quickly alighted on the Keukenhof Estate: the ideal site.

The kitchen herb-garden
Keukenhof has not always been the beautiful estate that we know today. In the 15th century, the 32 hectares of the present park were part of the enormous estate belonging to the castle of Slot Teylingen. This was ruled from 1401 to 1436 by the Countess of Holland, Jacoba van Beieren. She used part of her estate as a herb and vegetable garden. Here, every day, the countess personally gathered the fresh ingredients for her kitchen. It is to this that the present Keukenhof, which literally means Kitchen Garden, owes its name.

A design dating back to 1840
In 1840, the celebrated garden and landscape architects 'Zocher & Son' were commissioned to develop the park. Both gentlemen had carried out a similar task earlier in Amsterdam: they designed the Vondelpark. If you visit the Keukenhof now, you can still see their handiwork in the area surrounding the Beukenlaan. The majestic trees and the pond date back to that time. In the years following, the Keukenhof Estate was further developed into the present 32-hectare park.

World figures
In its first year, 236,000 people visited the exhibition - proof enough that Mayor Lambooy and the bulb-growers had judged correctly. As the years passed, the Keukenhof grew to attract from 600,000 to 700,000 visitors a year, peaking at more than 900,000. These included a great many 'World Figures' such as the US Presidents Eisenhower and Clinton and Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain. Keukenhof also had the honour of providing the décor for the first public appearance of Princess Máxima, who at the time was still the fiancée of Crown Prince Willem-Alexander.

Keukenhof today
The number of bulb-growing companies taking part has now grown from 10 to more than 90, but the Keukenhof's character remains unchanged: every year it exhibits the best and most beautiful flowers in the Netherlands. Keukenhof has become one of the best-known attractions in the country and one of the most photographed sights in the world.
