Lucerne, Switzerland

Lucerne, Switzerland

The City. The Lake. The Mountains.

Switzerland is one of the favorite stop-over in a grand tour Europe and one of the best country I loved the most. Switzerland is known for its mountains, rolling hills and large lakes. The watch making capital of the world, a "Swiss Made" is being mark on it. Switzerland is also known as one of the world's best chocolate production, swiss variety and "Swiss Cheese". Switzerland is also the official home of the Swiss Army Knife, the Victorinox and Wenger.
Lucerne is the gateway to Central Switzerland situated in Lake Lucerne, the most populous city. Embedded with an impressive mountainous panoramic view, a postcard perfect city. Its attractions, souvenirs, watch shop and its beautiful lakeside is an excellent and perfect destination for many travelers.
While on the coach, we have passed a lot of beautiful scenery such as mountains and lakes, very picturesque. I just couldn't stop clicking my camera. The place was so refreshing as I could imagine. Impressive and charming.
As our coach stop in a gasoline station plus convenient store, far away I could see a beautiful Swiss alps covered with snow, Alps mountain range. Looks like I'm so near to it. Very amazing and beautiful!
Lucerne is a beautiful small city in the heartland of Switzerland and became a center of Swiss history and legend. Lucerne is a heavily touristed destination. One of the safest cities compared with other cities in Europe. 
Ameron Hotel Flora Luzern
As we arrived at the city of Lucerne, we check-in on our booked hotel, Ameron Hotel Flora Luzern. A perfect hotel location in the heart of the city, a walking distance to Reuss River and the old city centre.
The room is fresh and contemporarily in style. Equipped with television, minibar and wireless internet free of charge. Staying at this hotel, everything was so near.
Time for us to take a walk around the city, passing  to this Old Swiss House made us stop for some photo op, it's a restaurant. A very nice one.
Carving of the Dying Lion
The carving of a dying lion "The Lion Monument" is located in a small park. This carving commemorates hundred of Swiss Guards who were massacred during the French Revolution.
"The most mournful and moving piece of stone in the world" by: Mark Twain

Lapin Restaurant
We had our dinner at Lapin Restaurant located in the centre of Lucerne, few walks from our hotel were we stayed. One of the city's leading restaurant which serves modern European cuisine specializing in regional dishes. An average 3 course meal, just like in Italy bread is always a given menu. For starters a pumpkin potato soup next is fish with sauce and vegetables and lastly a dessert which I forgot to get a photo of it :)
After dinner we stroll along some shops, some shops are already close since it's already late but still the sun still shine. Branded shops scattered around the city centre of Lucerne like Bally, Hermes and more. The city is quite peaceful but there are some souvenirs shops that are still open for business. We took some time to buy souvenirs and I even brought a Victorinox swiss army knife, price is very cheap here. Just make sure to put  in your check in luggage and not on your hand carry bag as this will surely be confiscated in the airport.
Watch shops are everywhere here at Lucerne, all swiss made brand watch are definitely here. Cheaper one to the most expensive one. One of the famous watch shop here in Lucerne is the Bucherer, here you can find a whole lot of swiss watch brand in just one store. Tag Heuer, swatch, rolex, chopard, longings, rado, tudor, gucci and a whole lot more.
Reuss River
The City's most famous Landmark - Chapel Bridge over Ruess, Lucerne Switzerland
The fourth largest river in Switzerland.

I can simply walk everywhere around the city safe, I simply enjoyed the scenery and the cold weather.

Cebu ZubuChon

ZubuChon

Best Boneless Pig

Heading to Cebu City with friends for a relaxing resort escapades at Crimson, in which CEBU is know for its beaches and as well its delicacies. One of it's  delicacies which made Cebu known for its famous Lechon Baboy or "Roasted Pig". I took this chance to try their famous delicacies at Zubuchon Mactan.
Zubuchon is one of the famous establishment in Cebu selling roasted pig. As Anthony Bourdain, a food critic and host mark Zubuchon as "The Best Pig Ever". Zubuchon Mactan is located at the lobby of Island Stay Hotel.
A glimpse on their menu
Here's few dishes we had
Zubuchon (Php490 for 1 kilo & Php260 for half kilo)
Zubuchon is very tasty and crispy and gave me appetite to eat more rice :)
Shrimp Sinigang Php240
Kamias Shake (cucumber tree) I love this!
As the tagline say's... to balance the richness of lechon, enjoy it with kamias shake...
 feel less guilty...
Chicharon "Crispy Fried Pork Rind"

If you intend to bring back home some Zubuchon, frozen Zubuchon is very much available on the departure area inside Mactan-Cebu Airport. So happy to get one and bought it back home for my family, since its frozen, instruction is attached on how to reheat and maintain its crispiness. Awesomeness! isn't it? 

When your in Cebu don't miss to try Zubuchon!
