Good Morning Paris!

So after Dublin our next stop was Paris.
The French motorists were always rushing about. Hmmm. They don't give way to pedestrians. Hmmm. Unlike ol' Manchester. And they just had to step on the gas while we were crossing the road which sent us screaming in a frenzy like a bunch of mad people. It was super embarrassing. Anyway, what do you expect in a big city like this right?

We travelled around Paris using the tubes which were very, very efficient, I must say. The longest I ever waited for one was 5 minutes!! But the underground air is musty and smells of... pee. Most probably some drunkard peed there. Eeeew.

Uh-oh I'm bad mouthing Paris. Hehe.
Hellooo... This is PARIS I'm talking about! Who cares about the transport!
Everyone goes there because it's so glamorous :)

Eiffel tower. As if you don't know.

Notre Dame. This is where the Disney character, Quasimodo from 'The Hunchback of Notre Dame' lived.

Ooooh... and this is my favourite place on Earth. Super duper love Disneyland. It was worth every penny I paid. More expensive than my Westlife concert ticket lor.

Champ Elysees. There... it's that famous street with all the branded stuff along it. Yer... no nicer picture of me. Couldn't open my eyes... too sunny. (Don't be vain. Don't be vain.)

This is Arc de Triomphe. See lah... they were doing some restoration works. Spoil the picture. (Arc, don't be vain.)

The National Opera-Opera Bastille. The plot in the novel 'The Phantom of the Opera' apparently took place here. See... got people taking wedding photos here!! I also want!!!

Nah... the overprotected and overrated Mona Lisa painting by Leonardo da Vinci.

Foie gras. My Mum was like, 'You ate foie gras? Do you know how they make it? They force feed the geese so that they can harvest bigger livers,' when I told her. T___T I will never, never, never, ever eat it again.

Escargots (snails). Eeeew... I could feel them crawling in my stomach after eating them. And no, I did not puke.

Nice yummy foods:
1. Creme brulee
2. Macaron

Okay, you can go and try them now. Bye bye.
You see lah... I didn't do any work again. Later I have a full dress rehearsal (for Mnight) some more.

Greetings from Dublin

Hello hello... :)

Me went for a uber nice long break during the Easter holidays. I wanted to blog after coming back but I was quite preoccupied with dance practices. Yeah... me and my smart idea of performing for Mnight. Super hard work okay.

And you know what! I FORGOT my PIN number because I didn't use my card for 12 days. Now I have zero cash(I use that card to withdraw money) and I can't pay using my card. T____T
*speechless* I ended up owing everyone around me like the Malay proverb 'hutang keliling pinggang'. Hehe. Ok lah, I'll find time to go to the bank. [Whispers]I'm left with five euros from my trip though. :) See... I didn't spend all my money after all. Smart consumer leh.

I have a lot of assignments to complete. T___T But I keep putting them off. Procrastinate, procrastinate, procrastinate!!! *vomit* I will start TONIGHT!

Lemme show you some pictures of Dublin. Will upload pictures of Paris and Amsterdam next. Save the best for last. :)

Cliffs of Moher

The Burren. This whole place is made up of granite. Apparently the grass over here grows throughout winter because granite retains heat. (I was listening to the tour guide up to this point... and then I fell asleep. Sigh. I paid the tour company to sleep on their bus.)

Connemara. The winds were so strong I literally flew the moment I stepped down from the bus. (P.S. I'm light!!! Hohohoho.)

Kylemore Abbey. An English man from Manchester built this for his wife but she passed away not long after that. She contracted some disease when they were on holiday at some place.

Wow, I remember quite a lot. I'm impressed with myself :) *claps* No wonder I forgot my PIN.

St. James park
Sorry, it's supposed to be St. Stephen's Park. St. James' is in London.

A statue of Molly Malone. I don't know who she is but she had lala in the basket.

The famous Guinness Storehouse. I drank beer and got a little red in the face. Please... I had only two mouthfuls. Sigh. I'm such a goody-two-shoes. Yay!!

Posers. I likey. Haha.


Till then. Don't miss me too much. Muacksss.
