On a footed destiny…


“The foot feels the foot when it feels the ground.”
Buddha quotes (Hindu Prince Gautama Siddharta, the founder of Buddhism, 563-483 B.C.)



-->“Patah kaki” literally described us when we started our life in Versoix. The mode of transport was a 10-minute walk to the nearest bus stop called Les Fayards. From there, we have to take a TPG (Transport Public Genevois) bus which operates almost every hour to Geneva. The journey on the V-bus would take us around 50 minutes along the countryside, down the lane and up the hill, passing by monuments, the Red Crescent HQ, the UN place and homes. -->It was winter and a 10-minute walk could feel like forever with the cold frigid wind blow against you. I could not imagine hubby going out early in the morning, walking towards the bus stop and waiting for the bus in the winter season. Sometimes, he had to brace the thick snow or the slippery black ice along the road. From his office, another 10 minutes walk to the nearest bus stop at Rue de Meyrin to take the no 9/29 bus towards Gare Cornavin, to take the V-bus towards Versoix. It’s so much horrendous when he had to carry all the groceries!
-->There was one Saturday, on our return from a family outing, we were caught in a massive downpour while walking home along the Rue de Fayards. We were drenched to the bones, hubby was pushing the stroller and I was holding Ashraf while winter rain kept on showering us. Luck was on our side coz our new friends, Azwa and Fahitah who were on the way to buy groceries saw the four us walking and kindly gave us a lift to our house. Alhamdulillah. We need to buy a car soon! The scouting for a car began!

Tasik-tasik best di Switzerland

Tasik Geneva (c)rashidisaid Switzerland memang mempesonakan disebabkan pemandangan yang penuh dengan pergunungan.  Jika sebelum ini saya dah kongsi tentang gunung-ganang Switzerland, kali ini nak kongsi dengan korang tentang tasik pula. Seperti juga gunung, Switzerland tidak bermakna tanpa tasik. Tasik adalah sumber air utama populasi Switzerland disebabkan Switzerland adalah negara daratan (landlocked) tidak mempunyai laut. Sebab itu rakyat Switzerland sangat-sangat memelihara tasik diorang dari tercemar. Nak nampak sampah terapung dalam tasik pun susah. Switzerland memiliki kira-kira 7,000 buah tasik yang mana 103 darinya adalah tasik bersaiz besar . Ini antara tasik yang best yang korang boleh melawat, santai, duduk, baring, lelap, makan, berkelah, ambil selfie dan wefie, mandi, berjemur, menaiki bot dan sebagainya. Memang indah dengan pemandangan pelbagai tasik yang menakjubkan. Tasik Geneva atau Lac Léman dalam Bahasa Perancis Tasik Geneva sepanjang 100km (c)ras
