La Vie En Rose a Paris

Two years ago when i took that photo in front of Eiffel Tower...I made a promise to myself that the next time i take a photo in front of Eiffel Tower...i won't be the only one in the picture...


It came true though...hahaha...


After that 12 hours transit in Doha...we board for another 7 hours to CDG Airport...I had never flown directly to Paris before...this is my first time...it was a smooth process...even at the immigration area...we arrived at 7am in the morning...and the flight was full...took our bags and stuffs then have some coffee before going to Paris...


We bought the all day pass for 5 zone...since it also includes the airport transfer from CDG to Opera...reached Opera...then we walk to the apartment that we are going to stay for the next 3 nights...quickly freshen up and off we go to the first stop...since i bought the day pass for 5 zone...it is hard to resist not going to the La Valle Factory Outlet...hahaha...that was our first stop...wifey kept saying everything was cheap...OMG!!! It is not cheap...but i would rather say it is reasonably priced...since after discount still it cost a lot...we end up with...the usual...Longchamp...few CKs...and a Fred Perry for myself...not even 24 hours in Paris but we already spent...have to be more careful...hahaha...


Then we took the train to the Eiffel Tower...since it was early winter...the daylight is a bit short...by 5 pm everything is dark...we took some pictures...then headed back to the apartment to rest...as tomorrow will bring us for a new adventure...well...i make sure that we did...hahaha...


Woke up...the location of the apartment is very convenient...in the intersection...if we turn left...we are heading to Hard Rock Cafe in 3 mins...if we turn right...we will be heading towards La Fayette in 5 mins time...ermmm...so to make it more adventurous...we took the left turn...walking all the way to Strasbourg...then make one big circle back to La Fayette...hahaha...then we walk again...all the way to Champs De Elysee...it was more than an hour walk...wifey was already tired so we stop for a quick lunch in one of the Arab restaurant near Champs De Elysee...then we walk again all the way to Arc De Triomphe...I asked wifey whether she wanted to go up to the top of the Arc...and i added...its by stairs...immediately she shook her head...hahaha...then we took the metro to Jardin de Tuilleries...walking along the beautiful garden by the Seine River to Musee De Louvre...then we took a bus to Notre Dame...then again took a metro to another stop...to Moulin Rouge...then  and only then...we headed back to the apartment but not before we had dinner in the Arab restaurant in Strasbourg...that night wifey really slept...yeah...i kinda push it too hard i guess...hahaha...


Third day we went out a bit late...since wifey still tired from the day before...we had lunch with one of my friend in Sacre Ceour...went to the christmas market...took some pics...then headed via metro to my friend's office...I almost got pick-pocketed in the metro...but luckily the boy couldn't do anything as it is quite hard even for me to take out my phone and wallet...phewww...reached my friend's office...rest for a while and had our prayers...then we walk all the way to Eiffel Tower...which was only about 20 mins walk from my friend's office...its time to see the Eiffel Tower in the daylight for a change...wifey had the time of her life taking pics...OMG!!! hahaha...then we had some snacks in the christmas market in the area...then had some pakistani food as well...cool yo...then i bring wifey back to Sacre Couer...to experience the view of Paris at night...then we took a metro ride back to the apartment...wifey went to bed and i went out to Hard Rock Cafe to buy some t-shirts ordered by my buddies...then i was the one who packed all of our baggage as wifey still has a hard time maximising the space...leave a guy to get the job done...


The final morning...just have breakfast in the apartment...then we went to the bus station in Gallieni...still within zone 3...get ready to say good bye to Paris...and move on to our next city in the list...wait for my next entry...hehehe...


My friends had been asking of where am i going to bring wifey for a honeymoon...i answered them that i will bring her to the typical place people go for honeymoon...i don't fill in the details but let them do their own interpretation of my answer...hahahaha...it was typical indeed...technically i am not lying...coz Paris is indeed a honeymoon city of the world...hehehe...and eventhough Paris is not as clean as it looks in the pics...but i still love going to Paris...don't ask me why...because i seriously don't have any logic answer to that...regardless...the photos are all lovely...i lost count of how many stairs we had climbed up and down along the metro...you have to go to Paris to know what i meant...it was a serious work out...no wonder the Parisian ladies are slim...hehehe...okay...2 years ago in 2012 i promised myself that the next time i take a photo in front of Eiffel Tower...i won't be the only one in the picture...been there done that in 2013...took a picture with wifey...so i have new resolution...the next time we take a photo in front of Eiffel Tower...we won't be the only two person in the pic...insya Allah...that will be end of 2014...hahaha...silly me...dreaming on...regardless...i enjoyed Paris...whenever i saw anything that reminds me of Paris...at the back of my mind it is all about La Vie En Rose a Paris...
