My 6th day in Switzerland, I spent it with my other Aunt and her baby (and my cousin) Sean in Zürich. That was my chance to walk around the streets of one of the largest financial centers in the world.
No trams in the Philippines, so it’s always a joy to ride in one of these.
The first in our itinerary was my baby cousin’s haircut at Franz Carl Weber.
My Aunt asked me if I was familiar with Peppa Pig. I had no idea what Peppa Pig is. I haven’t seen merchandise of it in the Philippines nor have I heard it of it. Not until recently when I heard there was a Peppa Pig show at the new Glorietta Activity Center.
Franz Carl Weber has many very kiddie toys, but they still have some that adults can enjoy like the Harley-Davidson Motorcycles collectibles and Legos.
After the haircut, we headed out to another part of Zürich to have lunch with my Aunt’s friends. It was another tram ride.
Tibits is a vegan/vegetarian buffet restaurant. Their food selection is unlike the local vegan eatery I know of because everything they have looks appetizing and even colorful. The local one just had yellow and green veggies food and, although they look appetizing, they weren’t. They could win the most bland food award if there was any.
Tibits has most of the vegetables I like, which was another good thing. Even if you’re no vegan, I still recommend trying out this resto.
This is what I had. The food did not disappoint. They looked so delicious on the buffet table and they truly were.
The mangoes really helped refresh my body because it was a very warm day. I thought I would have a break from Philippine heat, but summer in Switzerland is nearly the same! Except, there I get to see hot topless boys and men. Don’t get me started on the girls. 😛 You know that feeling when you’ve been walking under the sun and you just want to get to your destination especially if it’s a restaurant or mall or somewhere with airconditioning? That was me except many restaurants and stores in Zurich do not have ACs including Tibits. I wanted to do a Darth Vader ‘NOOOOOOOOO’ when I got inside. ^^;;;
I didn’t enjoy my drink though. Maybe if it was cold or had ice in it…
To give time for my Aunt to catch up with her friends, I decided to walk around to take lots of photos to share with you and play Ingress. 🙂

Mentioned places in this post:
