|mogliano veneto, finally i got the name right, did i? :)|
Some say it is full of romance, some say is a place full of pickpockets, some say Italian food is super fattening, some say Italian people is too straight forward, some say....
Well, instead of listening to some say, I rather go there myself, and hope you come and see for yourself too.
Like everyone says, if we are keep on saying life is short, what for we are still staying the same place, doing the same thing, but complaining want to travel around the world, but no taking any action?
One says: No Money. And here comes the same life-cycle again. Get dating, make babies, make family, and expect kids to bring us tour around the world? By the time we are too old to do extreme sports with extra burden of our old bodies we can hardly even move around. Please make a move to take leave and get some time to relax and holiday if you are really crazy for traveling. Minus off all the calculation, but also keep track and do not overspend though. In the end, use money wisely.
Here comes the city of love, Italy. So many successful person grow up here, i am sure there are secret recipes within them. Most of the Italian do not work, is it true? I will agree this no more. The Italians really do enjoy life, with spending most of the time eating good food, wear good clothes, dress up nicely with nice culture, it is so good.

|wee.....finally some Chinese words which i able to read!|
All for Real? It is Real for All...
Well, guess what? No fake eggs like those from china, no fake brands like Gidano (Giordano) or Niki (Nike), no look alike Gucci or LV, just be real with everything when you come Italy. The food is healthy with most proteins and vegetables, which make me curious how come Italian food at Malaysia is super heavy and filling their pastas come in different kinds, and unlike us cooking pasta with super heavy sauces, they cook it lightly just sauté and that’s it.
Guess I can gain weight pretty fast with such a cold weather and good food, check it out!

The Hospitality of Love
Plus, i am lucky enough to be with the Michieletto’s family. They treat me good, although i need a translator badly, haha....cannot even understand what they said, but they express their words with body language. And here goes my lovely family; they treat like one of them. One thing to conquer, the language, and one more thing to overcome – find one translator or try to use body language of the basic Italian one, and try go INTERNET and use google translate, mamma mia!
When dining, Italian is very particular from dress up neatly and nicely to have dinner together, and there are rhythms and ways to eat food step by step, lucky there is not many extra special forks and knives to learn to use, aiks!
