Back from Amsterdam

Bloesem living | Bloesem class goes to Amsterdam

After a whirlwind 1o day trip to Amsterdam I am home! Definitely an unforgettable trip… not only was it my first time in Europe, it was also our first Bloesem Class that has taken place outside of Singapore. 

Together with Trisha Toh (our #instafood teacher), I spent 4 days meeting amazing students (who feel more like friends now) and sharing the joy of food styling and photography.. and whenever we were not teaching, we were exploring hotspots around town.. so look forward to some posts on that! We had to also visit cafes of course, treats for me and coffee for Trisha. 

So here are some snaps I thought I’d share of the trip… hopefully not giving away too much.. just a hint of what’s to come..

Yummy Stach chocolate eggs that were part of our Bloesem class goody bag. Have you tried poppy seeds in chocolate? They’re delicious!

Catering for the class was done by the 2 ladies behind Cousine – they’re cousins so Cousine… get it? It’s so smart, just love the name.

Shop stops to come.. this city is full of amazing shops. Everyone we met had their own list of reccomendations, which was incredibly helpful but it also met feeling slightly disappointed that we could not squeeze in everything on the list, but I think we ended up pretty much covering most of the spots.
