I just checked and saw some really ridiculously funny laugh-die-me Google searches that lead to my blog. Eg. MUACK MUACK, Why did Ricki Lake's marriage end?, bahasa istana, playground dustbins, hamburger recipe celine dion (What the...???), rtm use michael buble song (Someone in PUCHONG was looking for this!), sweet little sexy angels (Someone is horny in Netherlands.), friendster klang horny sex (I wonder who's the culprit in PJ!), concubine wives in africa (Someone in India is looking for African concies!! Haha! Gosh, this is so fun!). Someone even looked up 'chup chup liu liu site'!! Now, who are you?? LOL!

Sorry kyh, last night was a False Alarm... I accidentally published this incomplete entry. But you'll get your 5 pts for that 'chup'.

And now, to continue my Swedish Stories... flashbacks:
Chapter I
Chapter II

Our lunch after walking around Kungliga Slottet... McDonald's.

Piglet's burger

My chicken salad + rice/risotto (I think).
This meal (both sets) cost us approximately RM70.


After lunch, we walked around Gamla Stan, which is the Old Town of Stockholm. A lot of shops here, and alleys too. But prices of souvenirs here are much more expensive than Drottninggatan (more on this in the next entry). Note that it's Tax Free Shopping for tourists here in Sweden (for minimum purchase of 200 SEK) but not all stores lah. I donch know why... Some of the shopkeepers are very karn (cunning). They won't give you the tax refund slip if you didn't ask for it. Ei, the refund is more than 10%, okay! Lotsa $$$, you know... On top of giving you the slip, your purchases will be sealed with a sticker and you are not supposed to remove it because the customs officials will be checking it. (If you have many shopping bags, most probably they won't go through every bag.)

The shop where I bought your postcards & stamps.
This area is called Vasterlanggatan. Do check out more pics here.


Yes, mine mine, all MINE! *wishful thinking*


Among the colourful & interesting things that caught
my attention from the shops in Gamla Stan.


Cobbled streets & medieval alleyways in the Old Town.


Public phone...


Then we found the narrowest alleyway in Stockholm, Marten Trotzig's Alleyway. According to this website, (more pictures found there as well) the narrowest part of this alley is only 90cm. How did this alley got its name? Answer is here.


Top to bottom...

Bottom to top.


Then, we came to Stockholm's Hard Rock shop in Gamla Stan. Nope, not the cafe, but the shop. Best part, there's an "Everything Must Go" sale! Woohoo! What else? Shop lah! Added my collection of Hard Rock Cafe's guitar fridge magnet which cost me slightly more than RM50. *see No Evil*


The really sweet girl at the shop who sprained her hand...


Next, one of my favourite view in Stockholm, Stortorget, The Big Square (Central Square) in Gamla Stan. It is said to be the site of Stockholm Bloodbath, year 1520. This is how it looks like today.

The Well... people enjoying the Sun.
Me avoided the sun, of course!




This last pic, my favouritest building in Stockholm, Stortorget 18-20. I really really love 'em. Such colourful wonders built a few centuries ago. We had hot chocolate one afternoon at the orange building, al fresco, of course... and shivering at the same time, haha! Coldlah okay! But I'll still do it again and again and again...

HRC is beginning to be a real rip-off everywhere. not that I have anything against it, but it's just too much to pay for a fridge magnet, or even a stuffed toy for that matter.

Hi !

I forgot to mention that the cows are so cute...

And the red building from your last picture is so unique and nice. It makes the buildings beside it looks so dull.
Was that the only one ?

Cheers !

the best burger chain in Sweden is MAX - they make your burger on the spot AFTER they've taken your order. it takes a longer time to get the food but it's so worth it!

Bibik Nyonya said...
