The next stop after we visited Frogner Park was lunch in a Chinese restaurant. Situated at Oslo City Hall, also. a walking distance away from Noble Peace Center, only 10 minutes, just 10 minutes to view the center from the distance.
The significance of Noble Peace Center I'm sure will ring a bell, it is an arena where culture and politics merge to promote involvement, debate and reflection on topics such as war, peace and conflict resolution and where the Nobel Peace Prize award ceremony (since 1901) takes place every 10 December to coincide with Alfred Nobel's death.
As I stood around looking at the building, I could vaguely visualise the great people like Theodore Roosevelt, Martin Ludher King, Mother Teresa, Aung Sang Suu Kyi, Nelson Mandela and Barack Obama. Historic to appreciate their good deeds, some who fought for the rights of their people whereas others remembered for promoting peace, harmony and justice.
Then quickly I dashed into the restaurant when I realise I was the only one who seem amazed at the center. The rest have already tucked and polished off a few of the dishes, didn't matter for there were still dishes to go around - stewed pork with soy sauce and onion, egg crab soup,steamed prawns, tofu in a gooey soy gravy and steamed fish with soy sauce and topped with spring onion. These dishes were tasty and satisfying when eaten with rice to pack energy for the next few hours of walking at Viking Ships Museum later.
