This post is DESIGNED to make you envious enough to book your flight and get yourself over here before the blackout periods ... you _know_ who you are
Some Sound Bites:
1) Pins thinks she's died and gone to shopping heaven. She went to the Serravalle factory outlet on Monday whilst I was at work, and yesterday we went to the Max Mara outlet. She bought a work shirt for 15 EUROS!! I got a dress for 70 Euros. A salesgirl told me that the dress was being sold for 130 euros retail. I have no idea what the retail price of the shirt is, but it sure aint 15 euros...
2) Olympic Fireworks are great, but I don't like Avril Lavigne with her new white-blond hair. There have been fireworks every night for the medals ceremonies, followed by free concerts. Fab and I already watched Jamiroquai , and last night it was Avril, but we prefer her with her grungier look. As Pins said ... Not enough eyeliner!
3) Pins tried Torino Chocolate. She had a tortolina - which is essentially a chocolate/almond/creme caramel kind of little cake, and hot chocolate (you aint had hot chocolate till you had a Torino one) and gianduja ice cream. She now is wondering if she can start a business bringing it to Singapore.
That's it for now. Will post again with photos in a while... we haven't had time to upload yet. Tonight we are going to watch Manon Lescaut at the opera! Then a 250 happy birthday wolfgang concert tomorrow night. And another one on Friday before Pins leaves!!
