Okay. Things have been rough for me these days. I wanted to blog about it but E advised me against it because he says it would be better to keep the blog to more positive stuff and happenings. So fine. I will continue with my Paris adventures.
Outfit of the day!
Went to Gerald Mullot for breakfast and we were blown away by how awesome the pastries were. Now, upon recalling Paris, I really feel very thankful that I went on the trip with E- because just thinking backing on the days’ events just brings a smile to my face.
And oh, since we were done with all the shopping the day before. It was E’s turn to enjoy himself in Paris. And my darling baybee is much more cultured than me- he insisted that we should visit the Louvre and Versailles and what not. And when we were at the Louvre- he was so interested in all the paintings and sculptures. The museum was quite cool- we could rent some Audio Guide which made it much easier in navigating the whole place and understanding the paintings.
We took a break from all the paintings and rested at Starbucks. It was quite cool that we managed to Tango Baby Ryan as they had free wi-fi at the cafe. In fact, during the whole trip, we spent quite some time video chatting with Baby Ryan because we missed me THAT much!
After our museum trip, it was back to hotel. We grabbed a quick bite along one of the small sandwich carts along the street of our hotel and we were really pleased with our oh-so delicious sandwich and hot dog buns!
E booked a mini tour(which was supposed to be conducted in English) to the Versailles. And it was quite an interesting trip with very vibrant personalities- like our vegan French tour guide who absolutely abhor fast food and technology, a retired primary school American teacher(and she was so chatty!) whose husband is some rich businessman, an elderly Swiss couple who knew English but insisted on speaking only in French, and an obviously atas Filipino honeymooning couple.
Okay, the Versailles tour was cool and E enjoyed himself. As it was a rainy day, we did not manage to take a walk in the gardens. It was a pity because the garden was really pretty.
There is this hot Japanese girl in the picture below- the one with the white coat. Yes, she is like super hot and so was her friend.
The photo below was taken by the hot Japanese girl in black coat, carrying this beautiful beige Celine bag. Man… totally made me want to get a Celine now. Anyway, throughout the next 45 minutes while we were walking in Versailles, trailing behind the Japanese girls, E was going on and on(actually more like gushing)how hot the Japanese girl and her friend were. Hmm… okayyyyy. I get it.
We finally got back to the city around 8 and our French tour guide insisted that we we really liked macaroons, we should get the ones from Pierre Herme. He(whom I thought sounded like a food nazi) claimed that his wife who does not like macaroons of any sort, will only eat the macaroons from Pierre Herme. And being Singaporeans, we really wanted to try the best. He alighted us at the crowded shop instead of our hotel and we bought some back(and they were like super expensive- 3 Euro for a small macaroon!) and yes, they were amazing! E and I even continue to walk to Gerald Mullot to get our dinner.
The only horrid part of the whole day was trying to find out way back to the hotel when the weather suddenly turned really cold and I was so so so thirsty that in desperation, I bought some ice cold mineral water(not Evian) for 3 Euro and continued walking(while whining at E, and I was on the brink of tears because of the distance that we walked that day) for God-knows how long before we reached our hotel.
Once we reached our hotel, it was like my hot bath session to soothe my aching feet, followed by dinner(while we watched some Russian channel with English subtitles about education) and some furious packing of everything. Managed to complete all the packing under an hour and we just conked out on the the heavenly Tempur bed till the next morning when it was time to fly back and see our Baby Ryan!
Sending all our tax refunds before we flew back to Singapore- and yes, we got refunded!
So, with this entry, it marks the end of my Paris Babymoon with E. It was a beautiful trip and we were really blessed to enjoy this trip without any mean or bad incidents or happenings. More importantly, during this couple trip, we grew much closer, shared more about our dreams and aspirations for our future and family. We missed Baby Ryan but thankfully, we had the family support to make the trip less worrying and more loving!
So, thank you Lao Gong for everything planned. I am looking forward to more of such trips with you! ilu. always and forever!
