Je t'aime Paris..Au revoire
Finally, it was our last day in Paris,
Huhkhuk so sad...
I wonder will I ever come here again.
I am so in love with Paris.
It is the Parisian style architecture, the nature gracing along the Seine River, the small roads, the soft, fluffy baguette, the crispy croissant , okay you got it, I will miss the food.
As I walk by, I would cried loudly,' Cantiknya dia!!'and started snapping photos with my DSLR.
It is easy to spot me in the city of Paris.
A girl left behind by her irritated husband who was pushing her baby and she will be catching up to him with her big camera on her hand, running, so that he won't complain how slow she is walking.
I just have to stop to admire a spot, a building, a painting-like view and snap snap, there goes my DSLR.
It is so difficult to handle.
It has been raining for two days in a row.
We haven't be able to visit the Eiffel Tower yet.
We really really wished that on our last day, the weather will permit a visit to the Eiffel Tower.
So, we woke up early and by 8 a.m. we headed to Jardin de Tuileries already.
It is a garden near Place de la Concorde.
It is a magic wonderland.
It was still too early so we had the garden to ourselves except for the early joggers.
If he took photos, it meant he found it worthy.
If not, he would just walk passed it.
The garden has a the French signature all over it.
I stopped at the Laduree earlier on the way and got 2 croissants along with 2 macarons.
Sadly, the croissants weren't a hit in comparison to the croissants we had from the bakeries.
So, the lesson is if you want macarons, Laduree is the place but if you want pastries, get from the bakeries shop.
Isabella started shouting,'Ah birdddd...wow ah bird'.
She enjoys watching birds so we make it a point to chase birds wherever we go.
Eiffel Tower is really beautiful.
There is something about it that makes it everyone's favourite sight to be seen.
To me, it is just romantic.
I asked hubby to kiss me in front of the Eiffel.LOL.
He blushed. LOL.
I am brazen like that.
Can't get enough of this place.
Isabella had her first carousel ride.
It looks like mommy was more excited than she was.
Let her loose to chase after the Ah birdss.
As a child, I used to watch zthe Gargoyles cartoon in New Zealand.
Hubby wasn't sure if it aired in Malaysia during those time.
But we both knew about the gargoyles coming alive from the statues on top of the Notre Dame at night and turned to stone at sunrise.
We started looking for the gargoyles.
We couldn't find any.
I tell you that you must try their pancakes or creperies as the French called it.
We tried the one with Nutella and the plain sucre and butter.
Isabella and hubby loved them.
They were so good.
Each one costs 2.50- 3 €. Equivalent to RM15.
If you convert everything, of course it will be expensive but for the experiences I think it is worth it.
Imagine coming to Paris but not trying any of the French food at all,
What a waste.
My husband was like,'why do you want go eat that?'
And then he tried them, he just changed 360 degree.
My pure Malay husband suddenly reminded me to buy croissants for him on our way home.
Never imagined that my husband would ask for croissants or any other pastries.
He was always only-rice-guy.
Now he knows why I was so fussy about pastries in Malaysia and why I just don't buy pastries back at home.
I have no will to be disappointed anymore so I just stopped eating yougurt, pastries, cheesecakes and well I will just focus on what Malaysia make best.
Who doesn't love the Louvre.
Why laaaa so pretty??
Can I take you home with me and place you as my neighbour??
I was so happy with the view that I started singing 'Pretty woman' from Hindustan film Kal Ho Na Ho, outloud.
I felt like a little girl skipping all over the Paris streets.
Hubby just walked quietly.
I wonder what he was thinking about his wife..Lol.
He understood that was my happy style.
I had so many wonderful memories here with my family.
We have collected thousands of photos to be remembered for lifetime.
I wish to show Isabella when she is old enough to understand.
I am grateful for this memories and for this love. May this experiences and memories strengthen our love and bond.
InsyaAllah Paris, thank you for being all I have imagined you would be and even much more.
Till we meet again.
