Bastille was a fortress in Paris, it played an important role in the internal conflicts of France and for most of its history was used as a state prison. On 1789 it was stormed by a crowd in the French Revolution, thus becoming an important symbol for the movement. The 14th July or “Bastille Day” […]
Well, life is always full of surprises. Recently I had been connected with my secondary school classmate whom I have not seen since we left school, and the most exciting part is, she is now residing in Paris. Ooooooh, what a timing! Cos I will be in Paris again soon et bien sûr, we have […]
One of my excitement during weekends in Paris is strolling along the Parisian markets, be it opened or covered. It is always delightful to go to these markets, and you would regret not to bring along the trolley. I went to Marché Auguste-Blanqui last Sunday morning and I was a happy girl. A fantastic […]
Autumn is around the corner and with the sun coming out today stimulates my lure of a luxury ice cream. GROM in rue de Seine, 6éme arrondissement, probably offers the best gelato & sorbet in Paris. I first had GROM in Milano this summer, and once I had it, I can hardly resist it. And […]
If you ask me, what do you like most in Paris? Of course, there are loads of them. But I am sure I would miss those days that I spent with my loved ones for a simple afternoon reading, relaxing and enjoying in Jardin du Luxembourg, then ran to have a really quality ice cream […]

It was delightful and everything was to our expectations. The food was good, no complaints for their service, and yes, they speak English, and reasonable price. Tried […]
So amazed by these beauties when I went to Le Bon Marchè. Aren’t they beautiful? They are more than just pasta.
Thanks God is Friday. After 40 hours of intense French class for the last two weeks, struggling and guessing what the teacher said most of the time, oh my gosh, I really need a rest. Learning any language is never like a walk in the park, it needs serious dedication and countless of hardwork, regardless […]
I am so excited each time when I encounter these beauties. These seasonal vegetables, not to mention their aromatic sweetness, are in very good price too….if you prefer to have some simple cooking yourself, these are good choices.
