you normally don't have high hope on corporate training and normally the criteria for the training is the location. this training has the most impact in your life. the content of the training is not entirely new but the impact you received is rather powerful and long lasting. it's like a mirror that force you into self examine of your life, life mission, your interaction with others, with the society and with God. it's really food for thought overflow!
you have been feasting on chinese this trip. you waited for almost an hour at royal china before you're seated. you always thought lowlands has the best chinese dim sum in europe but you're wrong. royal china has brought it to the next higher level. the dim sum here is very authentic, taste of hong kong but not greasy. the interior of the restaurant is also very classy unlike any of the restaurants in china town area. dim sum were divinely made, dainty like a piece of art.
had the most authentic english afternoon tea here in brown's. you ordered a tea-tox set while your friend ordered a classical set. it's a leisure afternoon sipping tea, catching up, munching small bites. both tea sets are exquisite in its own way, though you personally prefer the tea-tox set.
after the tea, you walk to bustling west end and back to the china town area, this is a very familiar area for you, while browsing the shops/restaurants, you couldn't resist the temptation and succumb to a bowl of savory tofu curd and a big steam bun, so yummy!
mudam is a contemporary art museum just opposite where you lodged whenever you're in luxembourg. you seized the moment during lunch hour on a not too busy afternoon and pay a visit. the architecture is great though there's not too much to see exhibition wise. despite of that, it has a great canteen and since your main purpose is to have your lunch there, you did enjoy your leisure lunch hour very much.
another trip to luxembourg, and you chance into a restaurant that turned out to be a delightful dinner. a very modern and contemporary restaurant that has a 2003 france gold Champlain patisserie chef working on the dessert. you're spoil!
sunshine after the rain snow, como is in spring splendor mood. you walk to the lake front after breakfast and you're definitely excited to see the different facets of como. all the mountains and italian alps unveiled in front of you. along with the mansions and villas along the lake front. como is definitely a slice of paradise for the italian. you just seize your moment to soak in the weather, senery and people watching. it's so different from yesterday and in fact you've seen the best of lake como in two distinct seasons.
as you walk towards the city, you stopped briefly at the electric life, a sculpture erected in the middle of the lake. it's such a playful sculpture with the reflection of the lake, sky and mountain and the reflection is constantly changing. this never cease to amaze you as the eye sculpture in chicago.
too bad you have to bid farewell to lake como as you have a flight to catch. but you're re-energize and recharge after the weekend. spending time with the nature always bring you closer to God.
goodbye lake como, if there's another chance, we'll meet again.
electriclife 藝術雕像就建在湖中央。它是為了紀念電力研發者a。 volt 而設立的。雕像用了類似玻璃倒映週邊的風景、令我想起了芝加哥公園的雲雕像 the eye、運用一樣的原理來反射周邊的建築物。在湖中央逗留了很久、天氣超好、不冷不熱、標準春天氣節。和雕像互動、玩樂溝通、拍攝。雲層的變化帶來了不少景色、可惜時間不多、離別雕像往酒店方向走、、貪吃的我在酒店附近的一家糕點咖啡廳、點了一杯卡布吉諾和一個開心果小甜點在座享用後才甘心回酒店取行李。
back to bellagio and you decided to return to como with ferry. while waiting for the scheduled departure, you hopped into another cafe and indulge yourself with coffee and sweets. it's too cold after all and the ferry journey back to como is so dreamy. you could hardly see anything on in the boat, certainly not the mountains surrounding the lake, but it's an amazing experience and you're thankful.
