Every time I arrive here at the Antwerpen Central station & look up here, I feel like I am time traveling back in time. And for me this Station also is the beginning point to explore other amazingly beautiful architectures of this City! #lookingup #thoughtsonmymind #timetravel #architecture #thisisAntwerp #amazingAntwerp #Antwerpen #visitFlanders #thisisBelgium #🇧🇪

Welkom Sinterklaas!🎅🏼 • What a surprise it was when Sinterklaas & his assistant, Zwarte Piet visited us in our class when we were working on assignment on Sinterklaas!!😍🤗 Since it’s his birthday tomorrow, he paid a surprise visit to us, and we received chocolates & cookies too! For all of us in our class, it was a new experience and we were MORE surprised when he opened his red big book and recalled the incidents of some of our classmates. Usually his red book has the names of the children who has been naughty in this year, but glad he had no such records. And yes, I did get an opportunity to ask Sinterklaas, why Santa Claus looks obese and not him, and he mentioned it’s Coca Cola that’s adding weight on Santa 😂🤣. What a wonderful way it was to learn about new culture while learning the new language and have a happy happy day! #Sinterklaas #ZwartePiet #thisisBelgium #culture #happiness #feest #learner #linguapolis #linguaphile #Nederlands #Dutch #thisisAntwerp #🇧🇪

Waking up early on a cold morning is not so bad when you can start a day with a beautiful coloured sky! But it can rain or even snow here later, you may never know 😬😝 Anyway wish you all a wonderful day! #DuffelDiary #goldenhour #happiness #weathernow #love #nature #sunrise #nofilter #iPhonephotography #silhouette #ThisisBelgium

Santa Claus?!🎅🏼 No but Sinterklaas, legendary figure based on Sint Niklaas / Saint Nicholas, patron saint of children. And he was not alone, but was with his assistant Zwarte Piet (“Black Pete”). We went out here to meet and greet them in the street of Duffel today, while kids were also happy to receive cookies from Piet! Well it was first time for me, so I was more excited than my niece & nephew too! 😂 [DID YOU KNOW?] Like in Christmas, children here in Belgium receives gift secretly from him and his mischievous assistants but on 6th December! And Piet is black because he is covered in soot as he has to come down from the chimneys to place the presents.😍 #DuffelDiary #Sinterklaas #ZwaartePiet #firsttime #culture #happiness #Christmas #SantaClaus #knowthefacts #learner #visitFlanders #thisisBelgium #🇧🇪

CHINANTWERPEN - Having spend half decade of my life growing & evolving in Mainland China, also having lived together with my family & friends who are in Hong Kong for more than decades; everytime visiting or even passing by Chinatown here just reminds me of ‘home’, not only visually, but also with the familiar sounds, smell and feeling! Am glad to stop here and stand in front, looking up of this gate from a place I am calling my ‘new’ home in the last few months. After all ‘home’ is where your ‘heart’ is!😍 • P.S. I found out that this Pagoda Archway at the entrance of Chinatown in Antwerp, which symbolises the friendship between China and Antwerp was designed by a company in Tianjin, the city where I was living & studying in Mainland China. #thoughtsonmymind #home #happiness #lookingup #thisisAntwerp #Anvers #Antwerpen #weheartAntwerp #visitAntwerp #visitFlanders #HongKong #China #Tianjin #Chinese #knowthefacts #architecture #art #thisisBelgium #🇧🇪 #🇨🇳 #🇭🇰

On the occasion of my upcoming birthday, folks here in the city of Antwerpen are decorating the zoo based on the theme of my ‘hometown’! Remember to check in @zooantwerpen from my birthday to 14 January, 2018! 🤗👏🏼😂✨Well that’s a joke, but my birth date & the China Light ZOO is for real! Starting from December 1 to January 14, I am sure the Zoo will be looking like a beautiful oriental princess in red & bright lights here in @stad_antwerpen Very much looking forward to it!✨ #thisisAntwerp #weheartAntwerp #ZOOAntwerpen #visitFlanders #Chinese #HongKong #zoo #lanterns #ChinaLightZOO #nofilter #iPhonephotography #busystranger #candidgram #multiculture
