Versailles & The Lourve

Continuation of my Paris trip post (hope you're not bored yet :P).
We visited the famous Versailles, the gilded world of King Louis XIV.

this morning, the mist was so thick until we hardly see whats in front of us. of course, temperature dropped to about 3-4'C =_= This is the entrance to Versailles

the formal gardens "a la Francaise"

this garden is huge and nice, unfortunately the mist was so thick so I couldnt show you how nice it is.. you can try google for clearer photos
we entered the Grand Apartments and Hall of Mirrors
Michelle, friendly tour guide who speaks fluent Mandarin, French and English

lots of things to see

so many visitors that day!

and I spotted this handsome guy! hehe ;)

spent about 30 mins inside and when we came out, there was some sunlight, felt much better!

We also went to the biggest museum in the world, The Lourve Museum. Yep, the place where the movie 'Angels and Demons' did their shootings.

before we enter the museum, we took some photos at the surroundings. This is also the Arc de Triomphe, but the smaller one :)

more photos of me!

the Lourve museum and the famous glass pyramid

us with the glass pyramid. the night view of the glass pyramid is even nicer!

hubby and I there

syok sendiri shot :P I felt that my skin was fair and smooth due to the nice weather there, LOL

the glass pyramid again, so nice!

the interior of the museum, three world-famous works inside are the Venus de Milo, the Victory of Samothrace and Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa

there were lots of visitors too

spot Mona Lisa. the painting isnt so big, but yet attracted so many people. this is the best shot I could get

p/s: Eiffel Tower post coming up next! ^^


  1. All pictures are lovely. You looked so beautiful in the picture that you 'shiok sendiri' one. I can see you have flawless skin there.

  2. Looking at the museum make me think of Tom Hanks. It's so lovely, historical and artistic unlike our museum here, ahem.. with nude statues. Hehehe!

  3. NOPE! not boring at all. enjoy reading ur travel post.. blog more!! :) hehe

  4. Hi Hayley, thanks for dropping by shenny's blog.
    Wow, you have visited more places than us, I think. We skipped to visit museums because of time constraint and my daughter might find it very bored. She preferred to run around chase after those pigeons. Love all photos you took. You are beautiful too. :)

  5. The architecture there is really spectacular. So nice... Your skin really looked flawless and fair in the photo. I think you memang have flawless skin.

  6. Wah! Beautiful place to visit! Yes, I agree too, your skin looks very fair , smooth and white, especially when your husband's face is there also which makes the difference very obvious!

  7. Ya, have to agree that your complexion is flawless... so fair and smooth :) I find the weather very dry over there. Had to apply tonnes of face moisturizer and body lotion haha.

    The Lourve museum is so nice. Too bad we didn't go in and only took some photos at the glass pyramid.

  8. Yan, haha thank you!

    Yvonne, yes, lots of nude statues inside, very artistic ;)

    Yvon S, thank you for following! I'll blog more :P

    Shenny's mommy, no worries! I thought visiting the museums/cathedral is boring too, but actually not..
    Thanks for the compliment ^^

    Mummy Gwen, haha thanks, but when I came back here, the 'flawless-ness' hilang =_=

    Alice Phua, LOL.. very obvious right? one black and one white, hahaha :D

    ChloeRuoyi, correct! Weather was very dry there, I did facial mask every night before sleep.

  9. Hi Hayley, love your pics. And your skin being nice and smooth' due the cool're right.
    Apart from turning fairer I guess weather plays a part as vs where you are of the heat and humidity.

    Maybe one day you might want to move to a cooler country? Ha ha.

    Your pics are really beautiful. And Paris is always great to spend holidays there....with its beautiful city and many places of interest.
    Have a pleasant weekend, Hayley, Lee.

  10. yeah u do look fairer, u must plan with ur hubby to move there so will hv better skin. hahahaha. :)
    what so captivating about mona lisa? do monalisa smile at u?

  11. Lee, thanks ;)
    Move to a cooler country? Hmm, not a bad idea, but not possible to happen, haha ;)
    Yes you're right! Paris is always a great place to visit, I really wish to go back there agaih..
    You enjoy your weekend!!

    goldflower86, Mona Lisa smiled to you no matter which angle you're standing, nice!

  12. I missed out Versailles during my visit because I opted for Disneyland :P

    Definitely need to see it if there's a next time. It's such a famous place!!!

  13. YT, hmm, I heard Disneyland Paris is not so nice eh?
    Nvm, next time you must visit Versailles! the garden is really huge and nice!

  14. Wah~! very misty indeed! I love the chandelier and the human sculptures, it marvellous!^-^

  15. Alice, yaya we hardly see things clearly that time =_= Those sculptures are really masterpieces!

  16. Disney Paris is not famous because the Parisians don't like American culture I think. Plus Paris city itself is a wonder, so not many are interested in a man-made themepark.

    I am a kiddo and I love Disneyland. I think all Disneyland meets the "quality", so it wasn't a disappointment at all :)

  17. YT, we dint visit the Disneyland, but I guess it was alright, at least we went to some must-visit places there! ;)

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…

BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…
