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! ^^

  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. :)

  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.

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

    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 weather....you'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.

  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!!!

    ReplyDelete
  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!

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

    ReplyDelete
  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! ;)

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…

The unwelcomed birthday presents

(Note: Quite a long post, I skipped my afternoon nap to write this so please read everything ya!! xDD)


Past 2 weeks were really exhausting for me.

It all started on 20th April when Aden developed a mild fever, he was tired and sleepy, I let him skipped school for 2 days.

He seldom takes afternoon nap, when he does, it means he is not feeling well :(

The next day, it was Toby's turn😢
Poor boy, his temperature reached 39° and it was on and off~
Then I notice he started to have these cute double eyelids for a few days~ Haha not sure why~
He was feeling really unwell, very lethargic, no appetite and super duper clingy to me!

Then both brothers started to cough badly 😢😢 
So on the 25th, I brought them to the pediatrician again.  He examined both boys and suspected it could be pneumonia and even dengue (because their fever were on and off). Suggested to get admitted right away.
I wasn't sure if that's necessary because I knew once admitted, have to stay for at least 5 days (h…
