At every turn and corner, we encountered a Christmas tree more beautiful than the last! 🎄
The evening ended with a Korean dinner in Chinatown Milan.
After an entire week of pizza and pasta, our Malaysian tummies were craving a hot and spicy meal and yes, rice!

My Corner of the World


  1. Such a beautiful city! That X'mas tree looks really impressive.

  2. Great photos from your trip to Italy.
    I have also been to Milan over 40 years ago.
    I also saw the cathedral there was also a square in front with all pigeons just like in Amsterdam.
    Also been to the mall then, everything was splendor there.
    Greetings Irma

  3. Gorgeous travel photos of your trip. Great architecture and food

  4. I've never been to Milan, Veronica! I visited all the main Italy's town, such as Florence, Venice, Genoa, etc. but not Milan. It's easy to see you enjoyed Milan's landmarks and their architecture.
    Sorry to see it was raining when you visited the Castello Sforzesco! I think the food you had in Milan isn't as good as the food you had in Florence and Central Italy.

    Thank you for sharing such nice photo-report about the main Northern Italy town.

    Have a nice weekend!

  5. Your photos are beautiful, Veronica. The Chatedral is amazing.

  6. Hello Veronica,
    Another great trip report and beautiful photos. The cathedral is amazing. I love the statues and the fountain. The food all looks delicious. Take care, have a wonderful weekend.

  7. Dearest Veronica,
    WISH I'd ever been able to visit Milan and its DUOMO... A dream and so glad that you made it—rain or shine!
    Big hugs,

  8. Dear Veronica,
    today I belatedly enjoyed your photos of Venice, which also brought back good memories.
    Now I see your Milano photos - I have never been here, but it looks like an interesting city, too, with a very impressive cathedral! Too bad it rained so much...
    The Swarovski Tree of Dreams looks impressive, Dior's too! I can understand that after some time with pizza and pasta you felt like "homesick specialties" :-) They look very yummie!
    ALL THE BEST from Austria!

  9. Nice photos of Milan, our bus breezed through that city on our tour long ago!

  10. The statues and architecture are just breathtaking.

  13. I really like all the lights they have up there especially the large xmas tree and I wish we had a rail system like other countries do, ours is so outdated.
