Christmas Spirit

Last Saturday I had an appointment with a Travel Doctor for my second shot of Hepatitis A vaccine at Beursplein Shopping Center. The first shot I took was on 12/07/2006 and lasted only one year. Since I will be going to Laos again in the near future it was recommended that I go back for a follow up. It was a year and a day later for the anniversary shot but it was quick and painless for 60 Euros. Not bad since I won’t have to get vaccinated again for this type of vaccine until 25 years from now.

Afterward, Johan took me for my favorite illy coffee and some windows shopping at Bijenkorf Mall. I saw one denim skirt that I like but didn’t buy it since I didn’t really need one at the moment and would rather send my Grand-Mama the money that I could have paid for the skirt. There wasn’t really anything that grab my attention in the entire store except for one black dress (above on the left). When I saw it I was like nice I could wear it. But after I saw the price for 549 Euros I had to walk away. I could feed my Grand-Mama for a few months in Laos for that dress.

I told my Grand-Mama that I will take some pictures of Christmas decorations in the Netherlands for her. The Christmas spirit is in the air and all the shops are doing their best to court the eager customers around this time of year. The Christmas tree at Bijenkorf Mall was simple but beautiful. I especially like butterfly ornament. My Grand-Mama loves butterfly so I took this picture for her. The next time I am at the mall I will look for this butterfly decorative piece so I can get one and send it to my Grand-Mama. Have fun shopping folks. 🙂
