Germany (Munich) Trip Part 2

Continue from:

As I have mentioned earlier, after the city tour, we went to Marienplatz. I love that place. Nice. Munich has splendid and unique shops and buildings. Some places look romantic to sit and eat/drink something.   There are nice tablecloths on their dining tables and fresh flowers around. The outdoor seating area is great because the weather there is so cool, unlike Singapore where I hate to sit outdoor as it is extremely hot.

Our bus arrived at Marienplatz.

My favourite Starbucks. Haha.

Marienplatz subway station. Still don't know how to buy the subway ticket =.= It's really complicated.

I love the nice and unique buildings.

See, nice right?

Gee~ I look fat here =.=

After walking around for awhile, Erika, Karen, Stephanie and I were so hungry. We could not wait for lunch. Hence, we just settled for some food at this place called Munchner Spezialitaten. The food tastes okie. We sat outdoor. The menu is written in German so we got to ask the waiter for recommendation.

Their tables have nice tablecloths.

The coffee is no good. Boo.

Salad. Quite salty.

Pork knuckles. Yummy!! Don't like the potato ball thingy. Tastes weird.

I quite like the meat and sausages. Don't like the meat ball thingy as well. Really tastes funny.

Wide selection of fruits xD

Hard Rock Cafe

Didn't buy the Hard Rock Cafe t-shirt. Quite expensive.

Hofbrauhaus. Apparently, this place is quite famous for their beer.


Even their ceiling is so nicely decorated.

 Remember Hansel and Gretel? Our childhood story.

Dalmatian!! The people in Munich like to bring their pets everywhere. Serious. Their pets can go shopping with them!

 This thing will chime and move at 12pm. A lot of people are waiting at the square to see this. 

  Too bad, I didn't take a video to put here.

To be continued.. Part 3 - Lunch!

Do you guys know that there's a new Golden Village (GV) cinema at City Square Mall? It is the 11th GV cinema location in Singapore. Showcasing the next generation cinema, GV City Square features cutting-edge technologies that will enhance the film going experience and empower audiences.

After writing so much on the new GV cinema in City Square Mall, let me share my own personal experience with you (see my photos below). Thanks to, I managed to get free tickets to watch Breaking Dawn Part 2 with Robin there. For those who haven't caught the movie yet, go watch it. It's great! The whole movie experience has been good. Satisfied!

The box office and food counter.

Nice and beautiful flowers for the newly open GV.

I love flowers!

Our movie tickets. The printing is quite special.

The seats are just like tour bus seats but more comfy.

So good to sit at the last room. Nice couple seat =) See, there's plenty of leg room too.
