Serres Royales de Laeken - Greenhouses of the Belgian Palace

Every year, the Belgian Palace opens its greenhouses to the public. The opening date differs each year as they depend on which time the flowers bloom at their best. And so, it is only for a limited time(about 3 weeks). To make the tour of all the greenhouses open to the public you will need at least an hour visit to really appreciate their gardens. Entrance fee is only 2 euro but it's free if you are under 18 years old.
This is my sister inside one of the greenhouses.She is obviously amazed by all the colorful flowers.
One of the many beautiful flowering plants inside the palace...the wisteria

And the forbidden garden...
And the path.... towards another greenhouse and almost at the end of the tour...

I think they only open until 2nd week of May. Note that they are closed on Mondays for maintenance. For more information visit: or it's in french language.

Hongkong- Cebu- Hongkong thru Cebu Pacific

I'm getting so excited to go back home after almost 2 years. This time we have a different itinerary. Since I have never been to Hongkong, my husband decided we stop-over and spend a few days in Hongkong. The next plan is to take Cebu Pacific Air to continue travelling to our destination: Cebu. Cebu Pacific Air is a low-cost airline that offers domestic and overseas flights in the Philippines.

I'm now looking forward to go and visit Hongkong and of course to go visit my family,relatives and friends in Cebu. I'm sure there will be loads of photos in the memory card.hehehe. My husband keeps on showing everybody the websites of the places where we stay and the nice places to visit...yes the power of the internet. :)
