FuFu Birthday Part Two

FuFu Live in Frankfurt - Part Twelve
29th Birthday - 22nd March 2010

Officially, FuFu is now twenty nine years old.

After getting up from my comfy bed on the first day of my 29th year, i anticipated kicking off the first trip to Wiesbaden, the capital of the Federal state of Hesse which is located thirty minutes away from Frankfurt by train. Wiesbaden is a historic spa city which has catered to people from countries near and far for many centuries.

Wiesbaden Hauptbahnhof (Wiesbaden Main Railway Station).

It was built between 1904 and 1906.

A pocket park situated just in front of Wiesbaden railway station.

Once i had arrived the city, i passed by a pocket park in front of the railway station before heading to the core of the town. I heard birds chirping, saw the squirrels chasing each other, spotted Spring flowers blooming and people enjoying the sun everywhere. Spring is in the air, finally on my birthday.

Spring is in the air! Hehehe

FuFu wanna be the purple flower, standing out among the rest.

Growing stronger, tougher and better.

Several days later, the country will in the blooming season.

The parks in Germany are all very inviting. Gotta visit more often!

Guess what building is this? You have three seconds.

It's a casino, named Kurhaus, situated next to Kurpark.

Wiesbaden was famous for gambling too. The Kurhaus casino has reopened and now rivalled those casinos located throughout the country. It's an imposing building with a massive Ionic portico and behind the Kurhaus extends the well groomed Kurpark.

Not only you, FuFu thought it was museum or city hall or library, etc.

Later FuFu moved on to Kurpark.

FuFu spent some times at the park.

Enjoying the blue sky, cool wind, Spring air, and sun.

After that, FuFu started snapping the flowers.

It's absolutely nice laying on the grass.

Then FuFu headed to the centre of the historical town.

The busy shopping street that packed with people.

The Schloßplatz (Palace Square) at Markstraße (Market Street).

The Schloßplatz (Palace Square) that situated in the center of the city is surrounded by several outstanding buildings - Market Church, City Hall, Ducal Palace, etc. It also a main pedestrian area at the core of the city where shops line the street and alleys, and mostly closed off to cars the whole day. It's pretty comfortable and relaxed to walk around this old town. I didn't really explore the town but rather enjoy strolling around, window shopping and taking pictures.

And saw a magnificent church from the narrow pedestrian street.

The majestic Marktkirche (Market church).

This neo-Gothic steeple dominates the center of Wiesbaden.

An important historical building. (Had forgotten its name.)

The Palace Square.

Typical German square - church, buildings, shops and open space.

Wiesbaden Rathaus (Town Mayor Hall) built in 1886.

The two towers of the Rathaus with nice pinnacles.

It's around six in the evening. Gotta take the train back to Frankfurt.

Happy 29th Birthday to FuFu. Got a muffin from a German bakery.

Also got a 50% off blueberry doughnut at 7.30pm. Lucky!

"... happy birthday to FuFu.... make a wish..."

And dinner was ABC soup (potato + tomato + carrot + chicken).

Yummy yummy. Loved the dessert!

FuFu had prepared the soup in the morning before he left.

It was a very nice birthday feast.

Who said one's birthday has to be celebrated with friends and family? Well franking speaking, it should be. Anyway anyway, i am away from home and will be celebrating my birthday later on Friday with my coursemates, so i decided to have a solo short trip on my 29th birthday. It's not bad celebrating the day which is belong to me quietly. Loved to spend the time alone for pondering, reflecting back things and gratitude to what i have in my life.

A loser? Shut up! You certainly don't know how to enjoy life. It can be fully utilised if you found the correct direction. Used to surrounded by friends and family since 1981, but at least now i know how it tasted like on my 29th. I totally enjoyed it. Again, happy birthday FuFu. Wish you all the best. Dreams come true. Stay healthy. Be happy.

Hey, it's just a number! FuFu doesn't look like 29 years old. Right?

Love the smiles. Be happy always FuFu!

FuFu birthday coincides with spring, a time when all comes alive again, renewed and refreshed for a new year, another four seasons full of hope! What a good omen for the birthday boy FuFu! - from Kenny -

Anonymous said...

Did you go and see those churches?
I like visiting churches to admire their colourful stained glasses!

So you'll finish you master at 30 or 31?
Master degree in UK only takes a year - very fast, intensive and demanding. I think elsewhere in Europe normally takes two years right?
Good, you can travel a lot while still in Europe.

fufu said...

1ondoncalling : i didnt manage to visit the church... but i will go there again since it's not far from frankfurt :p yeah i love visiting church and look at the stained glasses... hahhaa will be 30 when i got my master =p yeah 2yrs course here ya...erm i have been here in 2007, but still wanna explore eastern europe lol will do so later

Kenny Mah said...

Sometimes a birthday spent alone is a way to reflect on all the good stuff one has, and to appreciate all the great people in our lives, though they are not with us now.

Plus: Your birthday coincides with spring, a time when all comes alive again, renewed and refreshed for a new year, another four seasons full of hope! What a good omen for the birthday boy! :D

sing said...


看到你形容车站对面的公园里的小鸟松鼠花和阳光是顿时让我很有画面.很童话的感觉. 哈哈!或许因为我昨天刚看了Alice In Wonderland的原因吧! ;p

Kurhaus真的让我以为是间博物馆或图书馆之类的建筑物.结果答案让我傻眼.哈! @.@ 那么富有人文气息的建筑物竟然是...

那路牌下面的数字(5.3.1 6.2)是什么意思?

一个人过生日.why not?

shloke said...

Beautiful park, stunning casino, majestic church + muffin & potato carrot chicken soup = N.I.C.E birthday treat!

fufu said...

sing : 這裡的公園真的很有畫面的
那個感覺太棒了 :)


路牌那應該是號碼來的 不重要

Happy Birthday! In Chinese we say 30 still got change haha. Wow the casino is so misleading actually have they consulted any fengshui on the structure. Understand from foongpc all Chinese casinos sure to have 'protected' with fengshui. Wonder the Germans believe in it and if not are they making money? tQ

fufu said...

Bananazക : 30 still got change?? erm... what you trying to say huuh? anyway it's just a number, i am taking it very worries ya... erm about the fengshui thingy for the casino? erm i think they have their own landscaping idea(rather than our fengshui)... but i didnt go deep into the history of the buidling, probably it was XX long long time ago... hahaha

the donG : well i am still a nobody now >< just wish to stand out a bit in the near future... anyway my travels still not impressive... will work hard on it thanks, i will do my best =p

conan_cat : 19?? you are kidding me lar!! hahahah but anyway thanks :)
