I am back - City of Love
Weather: No rain (10 - 12 deg)
Mood: Tired... were at the beach earlier today.. had a long day..
Peak Agenda: Oh gosh too many things to write that i dont even hv any peak agenda anymore...
First thing first.. Gong Xi Fa Cai! to all my fellow readers celebrating Chinese New Year...
Forgive me for my long absence .. didnt mean to ... its just that time wasnt on my side and when i did hv a little time.. i ended up sleeping.. grrrr.. i hv far too many pics to share... i hv far too many stories to tell... but...
After 6hrs of drive fm Freiburg we got safely into Paris.. the apartment that we stayed in was superb.. location wise was good (near the Centre Pompidou) and we wud probably be staying in the same apartment if we do go to Paris again.. i specifically told hubs that probably its best to stay in an apartment instead since its easier for me to cook for my kiddoes.. anyway while hubs was busy during the day.. we were busy exploring.. I met KNur who lives in Terengganu (shes one of my silent readers and we hv actually been emailing one another for almost 2yrs now), and her lovely daughter Lily last Thursday.. we didnt get to spend the whole afternoon but we managed to go to E. Dehillerin with the intention of contributing our part as tourists to the Franch economy :op
I managed to buy what i needed there and most of all i managed to find the shop that was recommended by KNur that sells mainly Mastrad products.. anyway long story short after 3 days in the city of love... we drove to hubs family friends' place and hv been here since Friday... enjoy the first few pics below and hopefully i am able to upload more pics of what memorable things I did while in Paris..
The apartment that we stayed in for 3 days... Sonia loved her bed so much that she spent most of her time in her bed lol
First home cooked food... the day we arrived .. i cooked thai fried rice and ended our stay with Nasi Lemak hehe
Yep this is it... the place that i had planned to go for the longest time.. it was a huge warehouse and the sales people there were mainly guys .. they are very helpful and we got what we wanted...
The place can be a little messy but we make do... this is what u call... "where theres a will.. theres a way" - right KNur?? hehe
... a visit to Paris will not be complete without going to Laduree..
Had our little tea aka coffee there... to be honest.. i was dissapointed with their coffee especially after i saw that the coffee machine that they use is the same coffee machine that Burger King uses .. blahhhh.. nevertheless their cakes were to die for... their macarons .. oh la la... so overall it was worth the experience...
Hairi and his danish and the pic on the right was MINE hehehe
Eiffel Tower.... what is Paris without it.... we went there twice... wasnt the brightest idea to go at night cos the weather was super cold and wet nevertheless it was the brightest light that we hv seen so far!
hehehe Hairi and his Eiffel Tower..
Loved all the pics! worth the brrrrr
Hubs later drove us to Montmartre and specifically to the Basilica of the Sacre Coeur. So So cold, but that meant again no tourists and no problems is finding parking or taking shots.. what a long nite it was but so memorable!
