Antwerp (Belgium) & Brussels

Antwerp,a town with interesting stories. Our tour guide, nick told us about the town story, involving a legend mythical giant who live near the river, he will request pay from those whom crossing the river, for those who refuse, he will severed one of their hands and threw them in the river.One young hero named Brabo, who cut off the giant's hand and flung it into the river.

 For celebrating, they build the statue in front of the town hall to honor the hero.

Not much a sunny day in town, picture were in the sense of gloomy.

 Antwerp town hall.

In every city, you will definitely saw peoples impersonated as statue. Throw in some coins and watch their reaction. It was so funny, my bf have to snap a photo of it.

Wandering around the streets, O! a wishing well?!


Everyone knows Belgium famous for Chocolates, *marching in the Chocolates Boutique*

 Fat pony? or Horse?? classy rides anyone?!

Melted in my mouth, you have to try it yourself if you are a chocolate lover, you will gone nuts about it.
Could you guess what is this??

 It is a huge monument building in Brussels! The Atomium. It design is based on atomic structure(so obvious), the building is 50 years old and still looking sparkling. The Atomium is one of Brussels main attraction.

Me & Nelson. We have to stand a far distance from the building for taking a full photo of the building

Taken photo of the Mannikin Pis is a must while visiting Brussels.

 The Mannikin Pis statue have more costume than me, currently he is wearing a tux.

 You won't miss out the GODIVA chocolate shop is just opposite the Mannikin Pis. The Godiva chocolate is much more cheaper compare to Malaysia, so pleasure yourself with this yummy chocolate in your mouth.

Chocolate statue of the Mannikin Pis in one of the chocolate shop, the whole town is full with chocolate shop and souvenir shop. The town is absolutely full with tourists all around the world.You need to beware of the your valuable pick pockets might have an eyes on you.

 The city centre Grand Place was having a musical festival, from classical to hard rock music.

Scottish man are sexy!
We did not explore the whole town, just visit the main attraction around the town. I didn't purchase any chocolate in Brussels, just bought a Mannikin Pis fridge magnet and a key chain like any typical tourist will buy *lol* stop will be Luxembourg & Heidelburg.
