7.15am Munich timing & we are awake.
There's a train to catch from Munich to Budapest.
Before I write about anything, I must share about this hotel that I'm staying in.
Novotel Muenchen City Arnulfpark
Address: Arnulf street 57, Maxvorstadt, Munich, Germany, 80636
We paid SGD239(after tax) for 2 nights. To be honest, I don't have much expectation for Europe's hotel.
This hotel is located at Donnersbergerbrucke station & you can take the S1 line from airport to reach this place directly within 25 minutes. It's 2 stops away from Hauptbahnhof station which is the Munich Central City station, that's where the Railway station to other cities/countries is located at. 4 stops away from our place will be Marienplatz station which is Orchard road.
Like I said, I wasn't expecting much about it so imagine my surprise when I open the door room & found this hotel to be exactly the same like the one in Novotel Platinum Bangkok!! In fact, this room is bigger than the usual ones that I stay in Bangkok because it has a lying couch by the window!!
The space in front of our bed. This Novotel is considered very high tech because they have a row of USB port for you to pluck in your own HDMI etc.
Ample of space!!
#LoveBonito just launched!

I love LB a lot because they always choose to launch when I'm very free!!
Tempted to get this Theora Off Shoulder Dress but $48.90??! Anybody tried the dress version? Is the dress worth the price??
In my Dip Drop knitted wear & my #TaoBao scarf! I have to say that the beanie from TB yesterday & this scarf kept me very warmth! Very very good purchase!!
Off for my train ride~
First class cabin!
The sad news, we are seated on individual seats 😭! But that also means bigger space & Bigman's luggage has a space too.
International comfort drink, Starbucks!
I saw Accessorize shop at the train station so I went in & came out with these within 5 minutes! They are having 50% so I grabbed 2 items.
Total for EUR16 which I think is quite worth the price given that their items are quite expensive in SG. I remember we found goodies like an Owl scarf for only GBP2 in London last year.
Round one of food!
I smell other passengers eating & I couldn't resist so I ordered a bowl of Truffled Potato & mushroom soup which tasted so delish!
It's quite cold in the train so it feels very cosy to have warm & hot soup to drink while catching up on my HK drama.
Then I opened up the Zoo biscuit that we bought! Think I'm too hungry till within 1.5 hour of the ride, I ate non-stop!
Reach our first stop, 5.5hours more to #Budapest!

#Selfie on train!
This summarized up our #Munich trip!
It's a beautiful place with a lot of walking, I'm glad I survived walking miles up & down places just to enjoy the beautiful scenery.
It's beginning to snow~~
Both Rachel & Dreachong looks so good in this top! Hopefully I'll be able to catch the launch.
White & Mustard look great don't they?
The sun is out & the snow is gone 😭!
Budapest is so cold, much colder than Munich! I can feel the coldness at the train station.
Budapest reminded me of Prague in many ways.
The buildings, the people & the coldness~~ Let's hope Budapest doesn't disappoint.
All ready to conquer the super cold Budapest. We decided to abort the idea of going to the hill top tonight!
I'm so glad I managed to find a "normal restaurant".
In Munich, the few places that we went made us a little lost because we don't know if we need to be seated or it's free seating(which is for most places).
In Budapest, there's many pubs too whereby they sell mainly beer & sandwiches. I've not explore far from my hotel so I can't say much but thank God we have dinner booked for tmr.
Back in our hotel & I'm done setting up my corner!
Still in the Christmas mood in Budapest!
We ordered Supreme Nachos with salsa sauce which cost HUF1,590! I love nachos & the sauce in here tasted much better than those in SG!
We ordered Traditional Goulash soup which tasted good too but I think it's too salty! This cost us HUF1,190.
When I saw this dish on the menu, I know I have to order this. This Tenderloin with Goose Liver served with Grilled vegetables cost us HUF5,590 is worth the money. I was expecting Carrots & some other greens when I saw vegetables but when this was served, I was a little disappointed.
But the steak & foie gras made up for my disappointment. My face brighten up when I saw 2 pieces of foie gras. Slurp slurp~
Bigman ordered Csirkepaprikas, another traditional Hungarian speciality dish. It's actually Roast of Pork marinated with Garlic & Chili, served with Paprikas creamy sauce, fried bacon & mashed potatoes.
The big white item that is sitting on the slice of pork is actually Pig's fats! We cut a little to try & it tasted quite delish but I can't bring myself to eat more than a small piece 😅.
I think this is worth the HUF2,690!!
