Paris: Remplissez le titre

If there can only be one word to describe Paris, it would be stunning!

Despite being dirty, Paris is extremely gorgeous. Every one of their building is so gorgeous no words and description of that place would do justice of its beauty. The modern city made me feel like I was living in the 18th century.

Although I didn't enjoy my time in Paris as much as I did in London I treasure the memories I have of Paris. It's different than anything else that I have seen.

Since Zul and I cannot afford first class airplane tickets, we can say we've been on first class. On a train XD

Our meal on Eurostar. The train moved so fast (400kph) we were in Paris in 2 hours and 5 minutes. We're talking about London and Paris here. Not teeny tiny Singapore and Malaysia!

From the hotel room. We stayed in a 'lil hotel somewhere at Berne Opera. And the 'Opera' is not pronounced as op-ruh it's oh-peh-rrah.

Outside the hotel we stayed at.

Hey sister, go sister, sister soul, go sister! It's Moulin Rouge but Xtina wasn't there.

My obsession over there. Ordering crepes whenever I see a shop selling them. They're made fresh upon ordering and they'd slather generous amount of Nutella (SOMEONE SCREAM HEAVEN) and it's bliss on my cold aching palm. Definitely a welcoming warmth much needed and every bite I take Beethoven starts to play.

I am extremely frustrated that Zul got me so hooked to them. He can easily get them coz he travels so often.

Parisien has all their outdoor seating facing the road. They people watch. It's rude to stare but apparently not in France.

Montmarte. One of the many churches in Paris.

Nadya looking at the map of Paris like as if she understood what she was seeing.

The toilet is a capsule and it's littered almost every where. Didn't use it at all coz I don't trust the condition inside.

Paris point zero. Which means, if you stand there, you're standing exactly in the middle of Paris. 

Photobucket

At Notre Dame.

I don't know the name of this place but I remember the station we dropped off, it's La Defense. When we exited the train station, it felt like as if I had travelled forward in time. The entire Paris looked old and the buildings were not modern. It's like I lived in the 1800 and being at La Defense, I was in this century. The buildings were modern.

Champs Elysees was the place I really wanted to see more than anything else.

"Sleep beats make-up hands down!"

Wait till she's older...I bet she'll be putting on make-up at the age of 1!

I really do love colours.

LV's address: 101 Avenue Des Champs Elysees.

The famous Lourve museum!

Photobucket

The story about Lovre's architecture goes like this...

A Chinese-American man was asked to design a museum and make it blend with the buildings around. So what did he do? Build the meseum underground!

Isn't that the simplest way to do to resolve the problem.

The very famous Mona Lisa! I was surpised that we were able to take pictures of it. Zul told me that he wasn't allowed to previously because they didn't want the photo to photo age. I'm glad I got to take a picture of it. It's the Mona Lisa.

Photobucket

Photobucket

I don't quite get why they have some of their parts missing. This poor guy had his hands chopped.

Photobucket

But I feel even sorrier for that guy above.

Photobucket

He got THAT chopped off.

Photobucket

That is supposedly Hercules. Why on earth do they have to sculpt a naked Hercules? I am sure clothes were invented and there was such a thing as modesty.

I prefer cream pasta now. It was really good. The pasta above was nice. If not for the price, I would have order another plate. It's SGD 24 per plate.

Mommy & Daddy's lunch. Nadya's lunch.

Guess how much that jacket cost? Plastic sewn to make into a jacket.

Photobucket

150 euro dollars! That is 300 Singapore dollars.

Fine, it's waterproof and if you hide behind a jacket no one can see the beautiful top you've got inside. But the price?

And...the last supper I had in Paris. Zul brought me to Leons to have muscles in garlic butter sauce. I hate muscles because I dislike the salty taste of the sea that comes with all these shell fish, but these muscles and the garlic butter sauce was too good I cleaned off my plate of muscles in record time.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Our appetizer...we had to finish out appetizer first before we were served our main dish. That's something I'm not used to. In Singapore everything is served all together. There isn't a course by course.

Photobucket

Those are muscles in garlic butter sauce. *drools* I crave for them once in a while...but they're too far to get.

Photobucket

We ended our meal Parisian style, on a sweet note. I had creme brulee.

I've been searching for a halal creme brulee everywhere in Singapore. I found them at Delifrance but each time I want to order theirs, it's not available and when I finally got my first taste of creme brulee, it's in France! What are the odds...

You finally posted these up! Reading your blog is so fun, I tell you.

Zul looks extremely happy with his family. You look so radiant; it must be the blessed life you're living as a mother and a wife. And Nadya! She's so cute. Really.

I think you're a really good blogger. Your pictures and your captions and stories are good to read.

LOL. I'm actually gushing over you.

Oh oh! And I actually learnt something new today. That the Louvre Museum is underground. Always thought that triangle thing was like, a symbol or something in front of it. Ignorant me. :P

angelincarnated said...

Yes I finally did it. A sudden change of mood n i felt like uploading the pictures. Now I've 100++ Disneyland pics to upload.

Anw, thanks for all the compliments.

And yup, the whole museum is underground. The castle around is not the museum. It was fortress eons ago.

Ok, sorry that that unnecessary history lesson.

The triangle thing is actually the entrance to the museum.

You gotta go through a metal detector and get ur bags checkd just to enter that museum. God knows why.

Maybe they don't want anyone to steal the Mona Lisa.

Btw, I can't resist saying that Nadya being all wrapped-up reminds me of a Care Bear.
