Belgium national day

Today is Belgium's national day (nationale feestdag), and an official national holiday. Woohoo!

It celebrates the day on 21 July in 1831 when Leopold I became the King of the Belgians (not the King of Belgium), and secession from the Northern Netherlands.

French fries actually originated in Belgium. Belgians also eat their fries with mayonnaise.

My human loves the waffles that are available just about everywhere in Brussels, and the chocolates, and Belgian beer. Mussels with fries is a national dish (moules frites).

Those are good enough reasons to visit. My human on the other paw, would return to Brussels to acquire more Tintin merchandise. He wears his Tintin watch everyday, even to work.

Emily gave my human a Tintin poster for his birthday which is framed and on the wall in my night bedroom.

*As always, please check out Cooper and Camilla who always have interesting things to say.


After all the excitement of the last few days, it was nice to have a quiet nap today by myself, even on a dining chair.

Emily came around tonight. Woohoo! That is twice this week - this time it was duck confit for dinner (and none for me). When Emily visits, she is my most favourite human in the whole wide world.
