Montmartre Hill, Paris

We touched down at CDG (Charles de Gaulle) airport early in the morning and the coach brought us to Novotel Hotel for buffet breakfast. Temperature was about 7'C this morning and still tolerable ;)

in the hotel lobby



next, the coach driver brought us to Montmartre Hill (pronounce as mont-mart), also known as Basilica of the Sacre Couer.
along the way, we saw beautiful classical buildings.....
most of the buildings are old, but nicely built

  2. Very beautiful architecture of the building :)
    Not only nicely built, but are maintained well too, not like the old building in our town :p

    So, did you get yourself draw by the artist?

  3. The view of Paris city is so nice... so "flat" hor? One thing common about European cities are... they don't have those modern sky-scrapers. All the buildings are very ancient but nicely maintained. You can start planning a trip to Italy... Very romantic too :)

  13. Hello Hayley,

    Great photos there. How did you feel being one of the few Asian Chinese looking there? I believe at first, you feel awkward right? But then, thank goodness you join a tour where there's a bunch of Asian looking people with you. Hahaha! It happened to me before.

    7 degree celcius? Oh man! That's cold. After a few days there, do you really appreciate hot sunny weather like Malaysia? No wonder the Westerners enjoy wearing bikinis and singlet when they are in Malaysia.

    The old buildings or classical building are very beautiful in Western countries. The photos u took? Wow! great! I love those buildings. I can't wait to see more.

    P/s : Hey Hayley, a trip like this will surely be good to show many photos. May I suggest you use a Photoscape software, where you can combine many photos in one box? It does not only save your blogging space, but can u imagine? We can see all the photos in one box. By doing it, we can see even more photos of your honeymoon. Furtermore, it shortens the downloading time for your blog.

    Just go to google and type Free photoscape software. You can then download it to your PC and use the Pages function. It is easy to use. Trust me.

    Have a nice day Hayley. Looking forward to more posts of your vacation.

  14. Willie, nope, to be honest I dont feel awkward, as there're also local Chinese people there, hehe ;)
    Sometimes, I enjoy the windy weather also, as its really too hot here in our country =_=
    Thanks for the suggestion, I heard about it actually. But I'm using other softwares (eg: Photoshop) to edit those pictures. Sometimes its really great to combine few photos in one, but of course, need time and effort, haha ;)

  15. I stayed in a small hotel (one of those classic-looking buildings) right across the road from Sacre Coeur during my Paris vacation.

    The view from the church area down was fantastic!!!

    Ur hotel looks posh and nice :)

  18. YT, yes, the view up there is so nice! I will never forget the awesome view there ;)

    Barbara, me too! Most of their buildings are very historical.

    Eugene, yaya, since your kids are big enough, I think its time for a family trip liao! Paris is really a great place to go! ;)

  19. Wow, beautiful place to go! How much is the tour package per person?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Alice Phua, well, according to my hubby, its about RM14k per person, thats because of the 5 star hotel and better food.. If not, it'll be cheaper ;)

近期所用的美容产品分享篇

*还没参加抽奖游戏的朋友们,快快按这里吧~ 到今晚10点罢了哦!* (For those who have not participate in the Bangkok giveaway, click HERE before 10pm today!* *帮我的家换了形象,还好吧?^^ *
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
满意度:8/10
每次用完后把细毛稍微清洗,然后放在附送的stand上,自然风干就可以了
电动棒也可以’振出’很多泡沫~
这些细毛也不会集水,所以很快就会吹干了
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~

包装里有两种精华分别是水性的和油性的。把两种精华混合在一起,轻轻往脸上压和拍打就可以了,不需要刻意…

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…

To Penang again

Another Penang trip sponsored by my brother <3

The last staycation at Penang was during April (Click HERE to read).



Driving to Penang is easy for me, just about an hour, smooth drive along the highway and on the bridge, slightly jam from Gurney towards Batu Ferringhi though~ 

And here we are! This time we checked into Park Royal resort again, because we got a complimentary upgrade to suite rooms as promised by the manager 😁
The lounge area is now opened after refurnished, very big and comfortable place 
Waiting to check in, wefie first la! 😄
Welcome drinks

Check-in was fast, the boys can't wait to see the rooms!



The room is big and nice with all basic necessities, nothing much to complain la haha!


Complimentary snacks and nutmeg juice


It has a smaller toilet outside...


... and a bigger one with bathtub near the bed. Needless to say, my sons were the most excited ones when they see the bathtub! 😊



Without wasting times, we changed into our swimming attires and off to the…
