Lake Louise

On our way to Lake Louise, I saw some sceneries that reminded me of the Drielandepunt in Netherlands. Drielandepunt is where the boundaries of Germany, Belgium, and Netherlands meet.

In Lake Louise, the view is absolutely breathtaking! Glaciers on the mountain make the panorama picturesque. A truly sight to behold!

nice background 🙂

freezin cold!

After an hour or so, we headed back to downtown and searched for the Devounian Garden. Unfortunately, it was already closed. Chinatown was the other option, however, the shops are also closed.

We all decided to go to the mall to grab a bite and walk around a bit. When we are about to go home, we bumped into James classmate and best friend, Jedd. The two six-year-old kids run towards each other with open arms then stopped abruptly. 😀 That surely elicited laughter from all of us.

Jedd & James

We all thought they’re going to hug like they haven’t seen each other for a million years.  The truth is, they just saw each other few days ago.

🙂

It’s a good way to end the day…  Gotta snooze now. Another exciting day tomorrow. Mwwwwwwa!

It was freezing but that did not dampen our spirit to look around Maastricht (Netherlands) and check out shops. On impulse, we took a bus and ended up going to Germany. Since we were within the vicinity, we decided to go to Drielandenpunt (a.k.a. Three-Country Point). Drielandenpunt is the location of the border of Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany.

After taking photos, we stayed a bit in Aachen (Germany) and walk around. When we can no longer take the cold weather, we decided to enter the Casino and play while making ourselves warm.

All my friends were able to get in the casino smoothly and when it’s my turn, the guard blocked me and asked for proof of identification. He further mentioned that only 18 years old and above are allowed to go inside (I was already in my 20s at that time).

My friends were laughing so hard while throwing me teasing expressions. I grinned nervously and showed my passport. After a moment, the guard smiled back and allowed me to enter the casino. I opted to play the slot machine and immediately stopped when I lost. I know, I’m a penny-pincher. :p

On our way back to the hotel, my friends were still laughing about what happened and kept on teasing me. One of them even tried to mimic the guard. It was indeed a funny moment.

It made me wonder why a lot of people often mistook me as below 18 years old. It happened to me a couple of times that’s why I always bring with me proof of identification just in case it’s necessary for me to show it.

I guess, that’s the disadvantage of being petite with a baby face to boot! In any case, I consider it as a blessing because a lot of people spends a couple of grands just to have a youthful look.

For me, all I need to do is smile and the youthful glow will radiate. :p
