After a late breakfast with croissants and the news paper I took off to meet Simone. We wanted to go shopping. We met at Sloterdijk and then went to Hoofddorp to look for a shirt for me and for whatever we would encounter.
So... We didn't find anything that both of us liked. The shopping ended in a bit of a disaster. Must make sure that doesn't happen again. Bummed the whole afternoon.
Simone's son too this photo of me at the mall. I like :-)
... And so the burned out remains of what once was CityBox in Amsterdam Noord is reduced to rubble, sand and dust.
After work I missed my ferry so I sat in the sun a bit. It was a beautiful summer's day.
In the evening I played squash with Eva. It was great being sporty but it was also great having dinner on their terrace. I skipped the alcoholic beverages tonight ;-)
There is a tram line that you cross when walking/driving to the Frans Otten stadion and it looks deserted. But, there's still a powerline above it and warning lights. For the first time tonight I saw an old tram crossing. Awesome! I think the line is used for keeping old stock rolling. I like!
The weather was great today! I walked to the Apple store a few blocks down and made a selfie on the way with the sun on my face. Happy days!
This is the fountain in front of the Hotel American. I went to the Apple tore across the road to see the differences between 11" and 13" Macbooks. IF, I'm saying "IF" here, so IF I buy one, it will have to be 13". 11" is just too small... But it's also about a thousand euros and that's rather steep.
On my way home again I got beef, coconut cream, potatoes, peanuts and onions. Marjolein gave my this Thai massaman curry paste a long time ago and I had to use it before the use-by date expired.
So I started combining the paste and the cream.
Then I added beef, potatoes, peanuts and onion and let it simmer for 1.5 hours.
I love the shoots on my little Christmas tree.
I really need to re-pot it in a bigger pot soon...
Meanwhile my curry was finished so I quickly cooked some pandan rice. Very nice dish! I did learn though that the peanuts and potatoes can go in a bit later. The beef could've cooked longer.
After dinner I met Mic for a bit of squash. We did some old-men squash tonight. Still good fun and every calorie burned is good.
