I did quite a bit of shopping before receiving the news. Now that mum is recovering ... I am finally in peace to post this up. Here´s what I did on the third day of the trip. I went hunting for an autumn/winter jacket in Geneva alone and look what I found :-)
Tried this one on .... loveee the colour but the cut felt retrain. It was way above my budget too. I think it was around SF 280 SF / MYR 940.
Hubby chose the one with silver lining while I kept the other one.
I have also added 3 french cookbooks to my collection, with one being Molecule type which came with some gadgets, a silicone mold and recipe book, of course. When not looking, Andrew sneaked in another cookbook into my collection too. Thanks! But eerrrr ... someone´s gotta help me translate those recipes!
I carted home french butter all the way from France to Germany with my 8 hours train ride, and thank god, its Autumn weather hence it was all in good shape. I also smuggled in Alpage and Doux Gruyere and lovely, loveeeelyyy Comte.
And Cailler Chocolates! All I can say it, it is so much more better than Lindt! And the best part is getting the Gruyere and Cailler straigh tfrom the source in Gruyere :-)
My only hope is, I hope there are leftovers for me to enjoy when I return from Malaysia in a month´s time.
