Now what do you want us to say? Congratulations? Or condolences?

Take your pick, whatever suits you best

Of course - Amsterdam is one of my favorite cities, too! My #1 favorite in the Netherlands, but one of my world-wide favorites as well.

I think you mean Waddinxveen; you got Gouda right (on our list for a hiking tour). Utrecht is one of my favorite cities, too - #3 in the Netherlands, in fact - and I lived there a number of years as well. #2 is Groningen, where I grew up, and still love to come back: a very dynamic university city in the north.
