I just realised that all the dates are 1 day later, because I blog in the evening over here. Ah well I shall leave it as it is.
There was a demonstration at the Hauptbahnhof today. It caused some obstructions to the tram routes. Demonstration supporting SBB workers in Tessin-Bellizona (Artikel auf Deutsch)
I finally found the much-talked-about Milchautomat at Hönggerberg today. It’s basically a milk-dispensing machine which provides fresh milk, day and night, unpasteurized, unhomogenized. (Almost straight from the cow!) I didn’t bring my own bottle but there were some kindly left there, so I put in a $2 coin and got 1.5l of milk. When I reached home I boiled it all. I split it into 3 parts (macam doing experiment). The first I cooled and put in the fridge. The second I cooled and drank. The third I added bitter chocolate and tried to make chocolate milk.
It was actually okay! At first I wondered why it wasn’t sweet enough (You’ve probably figured out why), but I ate it with biscuits and it was really nice. But I drank about 1 litre of milk, and frequent trips to the toilet ensued.
2 nice-looking ladies (aunties, not my age) stopped by the apartment at about 4pm. They asked me if I speak Chinese. Before I answered they asked, “or English? We saw the name Timothy on the apartment so I guess you speak English. Anyway we’re inviting Chinese-speakers to this talk tonight, I wonder if you’re interested?” By then I looked at the sheet of paper that they were holding and realised they were Jehovah’s Witnesses. So I politely declined and they left. This is my second encounter with Jehovah’s Witnesses in Zurich, and both were when they were “evangelising” and giving out pamphlets and meetings. They are described on wikipedia and have quite different beliefs from what I believe in. They have cult status in Singapore. Have to be careful.
Lunch with Grace today, and managed to walk down most of the bus 69 route because it did not rain. Lovely view!
