Back again! Moving on to Paris~
Rise & shine & prepped ourselves- eu route to Paris!
look @ my sister’s funny candid face HAHAHA, love u always 🙂
Casually taking my ootd along the hotel corridor LOL
(SORRY NOT SORRY FOR THE SPAMMMM)
We bought more Belgium chocolates for our train ride to Paris!
AND WE HAVE ARRIVED!! Then we booked an Uber to our hotel 🙂
we stayed at Trinite Haussman in Paris, located super near the Moulin Rogue Theatre! It’s also a walkable distance to Galleries Lafayette- a shopping haven for all luxury lovers and shoppaholics! Generally our hotel is very convenient, and is located in between two train stations, pretty easy to get around. Just that during the night time it’s a bit dangerous, IMO, also cos there are quite a few bars along the streets also.
Interior wise our hotel room was really small 🙁 as compared to our previous stay in Brussels (Courtyard Mariott) and other parts of Europe…
Our first meal in Paris! My sister always has a list of places-to-eat and visit so this is one of it! This was at Café du centre, the food’s so amazing! We love the french onion soup and ravoli the most! and yay to free (& mostly warm) bread w butter everywhere.
Unfortunately for us… it rained the first 3 days while we were in Paris 🙁
very apt for the caption “Paris in the rain” 😛
It was constantly raining that day and our initial plan was to visit Eiffel Tower for the evening so we can look at it light up but due to the bad weather we didn’t in the end. And luckily we did not because the air is foggy so her friend who went took photos that could not even capture the pretty lights. ALSO because i was freezing in that weather!! It was 7-9 degrees, forecast stated that it felt like 4 degree celcius T_T
we walked along the streets after dinner and bought desserts back to our hotel!
oh ya our chocolates from Belgium for snacks hehehe
Was still feeling jet lagged 🙁 we had an early night again, hahaha.
Day 2 in Paris:
Headed on to Galleries Lafayett to window shop to see what luxury goods we want to get during the trip. The place was so swarmed with tourists, hahaha, all the rich people T_T
Had brunch at Angelina- they have the thickest chocolate ever, omg.
Had their signature hot chocolate which is REALLY RICH, and dense. LOL.
Ordered breakfast omelette which was meh, and our MUST-ORDER for every meal- French Onion Soup! Not bad tho 🙂
we ordered a lemon tart cos our hot chocolate was really wayyyyy to rich & thick for our tastebuds.
Weather was so bad. It was chilly not in a good way 🙁 Anyways wanted to take nice photos at this backdrop but the wind not helping at all, meh.
Went on to shop… this was at UO! bought this cardigan which was useless in protecting me from the cold -_-
Went to Louvre to take photos but it was really freezing cold 🙁 Worst still, the wind really froze my face. NOT JUST THAT OK, my sister’s phone got frozen from taking pictures so it shut off by itself, needed to get back indoors and the phone could only turn on after… Sighs. I literally couldn’t feel my face at all then. Really super unprepared for the weather, LOL.
OHMY IT WAS SO FREAKING COLD THAT MY sister’s iphone froze…… my face was frozen too… could barely feel anything at all, i couldn’t feel my nose T_T
We decided to head to a nearby cafe to had early dinner – coz that night my sis abandon me for one evening to attend her 2nd Sam smith concert. So i decided to make time for a spin class in Paris too 😀
Really enjoyed my spin class @ Paris!!! I attended it at Kiwill!!! Best thing is: FIRST CLASS IS FREE. And I’m so proud of myself coz I navigated by my own, hehe.
We picked a fairly better weathered day to head to Disneyland, the day it didn’t rain… hahaha.
Took the train all the way to Disneyland station, but little did we know that our transport passes only cover zone 1-3 and Disneyland was not included in these zones -__- but the metro/ train gantries just let us pass through like these when we insert our tickets, really think it should be made more known/ clearly.. Because upon reaching, we could not exit with our ticket, and got fined 35 euros each, on the spot T_T we were not the only ones! some other tourists got fined too. Sigh, they should up their public transport system.
Lunch was obviously themepark food… I had vege pasta sis had pizza.. food was so meh but garlic bread was yummy HEHE.
Unfortunately for us, we went on a public holiday, so it was so crowded and we had to queue for at least an hour for the rides… we queued till we felt so fatigue. And we didnt really fancy many of the rides because we’ve been to Tokyo’s Disneyland + Disneysea and HK disneyland, so some repeated rides or less thrilling ones we didn’t bother queueing. We also felt too old for the theme park shopping. hahaha.
i love u lil shit <3
We visited Walt disney studios coz only Paris has it!!!
After awhile we decided to take the long train ride back to the city~~ because we needed to head back to rest and prepare for Moulin Rogue that night!
Headed back to near our hotel and took awhile to pick a cafe to have our dinner because either
1. reviews were bad, 2. service was so bad the servers ignored us zzz
At some random cafe we picked- and as usual we had our favourite french onion soup and a main 🙂 We love every french onion soup we had in Paris!!! None of them disappointed us. hahaha
We both dressed up just to watch the show!!! It was freezing cold FYI… like 9 degree celcius, haha. Thankfully for us, our hotel was really near the theatre!! hahaha, like a 8 mins’ walk? (Walk back was so chilly almost died again :()
Anyway, about that show, I really loved the movie Moulin Rouge- it was so touching- obviously there was a love story. But of course the real show was nothing like that, heh. It was still great, just thought i’d watch it since we are already in Paris. My sis actually bought the tickets with drinks (champagne) but we exchanged for soft drinks instead, I don’t like champagne. LOL. Oh, I fell asleep halfway through the show, FYI, the show started at close to midnight, damn shag by then already.
Gonna be updating on my other days in Paris again, soonest!
