this place must be a rival to rotterdam's markthal. while in reality, they are of very different personality modern vs history.  food wise, they're very different too. at the foodhallen, it's almost impossible to make up your mind what you want to eat but at the end you settle for the fried soft shell crab burger with steamed bun. a kinda fusion treat but delicious ones... and then you order another plate of mezza to share.  lovely fallafel and humus.  there're a few more stalls that you wanted to try but your eyes are bigger than your stomach, so you will save it for the next time, more excuse to come back for more!

moving from one wing to another, at this side, you still see the same light that comes to play but no more food or restaurants just some shops that selling vintage, recycle or self design items.  all things that you browsed are graciously display and done.
love this place, a different amsterdam experience!

you've never been so fascinated about light until you visited this place.  it's an old tram station converted to now a concept space that houses restaurants, shops, galleries, studio and event center.  it's an oasis in the city center.  for once you didn't feel that you're in amsterdam when you're here. you're transported to some quiet places with one of a kind arty crowds with emphasis on recycle. the recycle bike shop, the recycle or vintage general shops.  so refreshing and when the light comes to play, the atmosphere changes according to the sunlight that spike through the glass roof top or floor length windows...
you indulged yourself in the light, and every tram elements that remain today and the atmosphere that reminisce yesteryear.
the light and shadow challenged your photography skill to the next level and the self imposed constraint of capturing only using a 35mm put the challenge even higher. with such a beautiful high building and you only have a 35mm perspective and composition, thus you have to be creative but you thoroughly enjoyed this together with a sister who're also into photography.

1 john 1:5 this is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all

 it has been windy and by looking at the fallen petals you could tell how windy it was....
 it's may, the daffodils and tulips are gone, what showing up is your allium
and some purple flowers that caught you by surprise and of course the chives that about to bloom again...

when to your scheduled doctor appointment and the conclusion is you should try to shed off 6kg.  your weight has gone down (slowly) over the past few years but to get rid of another 6 would be really a challenge since your workout activities are almost at the max.  imagine in a week routine. monday and friday you go for piloxing while tuesday, wednesday, thursday and sunday you go for zumba.  although you're not following this routine strictly but you're at the gym at least 4 times a week, which is a lot compare to other people.
you'll try your best but as it's ultimately your goal also to get rid of some medication and perhaps not at all 6kg but a few more would help.
you love spring and the fact that you walk out from your gym the sky is still radiant with blimey light, and that's about 8pm in the evening.

for some reasons, almost all the lowland's public holidays are in the month of may.  with a free day, you went to the city, running some errands and visit some cafes.  it's just a normal day, fill with coffee and pastries and making it feels like a little special.  it's a public holiday after all.

you have been staying put for too long.  and when your days are not too busy, you just seize your moment in reading some travel guides soaking up some knowledge and anticipation for trips that you aren't sure if it will happen.
all in all, good read and brief escape while sipping your coffee and biting on the pastry.
