The week had been a whirlwind up till the the last minute of the 5-day working week. I decided to have some self-relaxing therapy…making my own dinner!

It was worth all the sweat and weariness of carrying these heavy groceries back from Tuudi, a local grocery chain in Rome. Can you spot which are from Rome and which are from Mont Kiara? Teeheehee.

Toast butter on one side of the sliced load, and toast the other sides with mustard and honey. Toast with sliced ham and sliced cremosissimo. Sprinkled over with some basil and pepper. Heavenly! Now…time to gelojoh!

Bought this back also from Tuudi, cost about 5 Euros (smacks own head). Our Malaysia alcohol tax is just too crazy! Boy oh boy, was I so pleased with the vino!

Home made gelato@Palazzo Nomena

With the little time we have to walk around Rome city, we scurried around as much as we could with the help of an experienced Rome traveller, YK (who had been here once and raved how well he knew Rome already).

We came to the artsy fartsy part of Rome, with street musicians playing really cool music, talented artists selling their bestwork, mimes (no picts taken as we would be charged), street magicians etc. One really fun place to be with. Reminded me of Camden.

Saw this little girl quietly sitting down to have her portrait drawn. After looking at her face, and looking at the drawing.. I really do not know if I would want to pay him to draw me, like that.

Demona: The ‘Rome’ traveller told us to hold our thirsty tongues as we walked past, many of the many, many, many ice cream shops until we were wondering if he knew which ice cream we should try.

Until we stumbled upon this shop, which had an extra word that said ” Fatto de casa”, apparently meant “Home Made”.

I had the vanilla and nutella gelato, the rest ordered pistachio and chocolate. Vanilla was really good, but the best flavour went to the chocolate. So so rich, chocolatey yet not too sweet.
Our fingers were freezing holding the cold cup. But yeah, it was truly a nice experience taking small bites of ice cream, while walking around with some romantic music playing on the background. Would be perfect if there is a partner with you taking a stroll.
