Let it snow! Let it snow!

Just a few days after I came back from a month long yuletide vacation in the Philippines, I wasn’t anticipating that there was a snow storm heading towards Belgium. Having been soaked under the tropical sun, my body was already feeling the cold thermal shock just as I arrived. I came on a friday and…

Autumn in Liege, Belgium

It’s that time of the year again; when the sun starts to set early, when you start to feel the chilly air, and the leaves change its color and withers.

Today, the sun’s out and so is the rest of the town. I guess we are all in “Profiter du Soleil” mode (a common french phrase meaning…

Daily Flips: Watching the World Cup 2014 finals

A friend invited me to join them to watch the World Cup 2014 finals in Aachen, Germany. From Liege, Aachen is the closest German city which is roughly around 60 km away. The town was very quiet with close to empty streets when we arrived. But, the tranquility suddenly changed to loud shouts and cheers, fireworks…
