Day 3: Zurich, Switzerland Part 2

Cousin Evan took us to Jucker Farm, an important pumpkin producer in Switzerland.  It was quite a long journey we truly appreciate Cousin Evan for the ride. About an hour or more, we arrived the adventure farm where children gets to play in the nature surrounded by pumkins and fruit trees.


There were many activities such as pumpkin carving, pluck fruits from trees, playgrounds and pumkin sculptures. A place I can never find in my home town Singapore. Leia and hammock for the first time.

The girls like this straw area a lot. They would climb, jump and all the sensory activities with nature.

Another video to consolidate all the pictures I took in Jucker Farm.

Didn’t take as much pictures as my canon G12 battery went flat. Of all times..


Well I do remember Leia and the Isabella were having wonderful time.

During lunch, we had wanted to enjoy the pastries outdoor however we were attacked by wasp. In the end, we retreat indoor for the most delicious pumpkin soups and home made apple juice, best I ever had in my life.

For a great review of Jucker Farm, please visit Moms Tots Zurich.

Kids had fun, mummies have to think of dinner menu. Cousin Evan took us to local supermarket Migros. I saw lots of pizzas, pastas and cheese.

It was an eye-opener for me when I noticed shoppers collecting a self-scanning device to scan the items in their cart.

Currently in our local supermarket, we only have self-check out machines. Probably someday I will see this in Singapore. Back to dinner, Cousin Evan decided to have steak and pork for dinner. And might just be the first time tasting her home cooked food despite knowing her for more than three decades.

Cousin Evan has a modern open concept kitchen with stunning kitchen tools. The steaks look good on her grill pan. She has Philips Air Fryer too. Perhaps I should have made a 12 min lava cake for dessert. Shall do this another time.

After dinner, Bret and I got to learn more about lifestyle of european parents. It was nice to hear from Ralph and happy for Cousin Evan that she has found a wonderful lifetime partner. Near midnight, it was time to leave. Leia was already asleep on the couch. Ralph drove us to the train station and we returned to hotel station after 30-40 minutes. In Europe, travelling takes time. Train is faster than car.

With all his might, Bret carried Leia all the way from the station to hotel. It was tiring for him and … for me to see. Reached the hotel room, we cleaned up and changed our little girl took turns to shower as we prepared a good night sleep.

Day 3 didn’t seemed like we just arrived Zurich.We didn’t feel like tourist. Perhaps its the visit to where locals go to. Family-friendly Farm, Isabella’s school, Supermarket and home cooked dinner at a cozy apartment of Cousin Evan and Ralph.
