Christmas night markets everywhere....

Time: 10:40pm
Venue: Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore, Paris
Weather: 1C... cloudy
Mood: Sleepy.. need my beauty sleep
Peak Agenda: Nope.. nothing.. too many lol.. first of all i wanna wish all muslim around the world.. Selamat Menyambut Awal Muharram 1432H!

We are in the city of Paris right now... we decided to stay a night in Paris town simply cos we wanted to check out the night markets here.. Christmas is around the corner so u got all kinds of night markets that u can go to.. yesterday was the last night we were at the Bachmanns.. we enjoyed every bit of our time with them and they are indeed wonderful hosts.. I got to spend a little time alone with Vero doing the morning marketing.. so nice to be given the chance to do things on my own without having to chase or worry abt my little one going somewhere.. after lunch.. Frank's eldest daughter, Marion came over to meet us.. its been 3 yrs since i last saw her in Singapore.. anyway long story short.. we later went to their local night market there and had dinner at home.. over the past few days at the Bachmanns i got to learn a few French recipes and am loving it.. Vero was kind enough to share with me a few desert recipes and guess what.. she also took me to the best cooking chocolate shop near their place.. u see all the while i thought Valrhona is the best?? well well well.. i was wrong.. i will blog abt it when i get back to Singapore yah cos right now there are other things that i wanna blog abt .. and yep i bought loads of cooking chocolate hehe.. tmrw morning we plan to do a little bit of touristy thingy around Paris bef checking out of this hotel... we will be spending two nights in another hotel close to Euro Disney.. :op



Their Sunday market.. well this market is open twice a week.. wed and Sunday....

The local were so so friendly... every single time i was abt to take pic of them.. they wud wave and laugh and Vero wud in return "promote" and told em that i am taking pic for my blog and of cos they wud asked for my blog name and since bisous is commonly used here they wud in return said.... ahhhhhh bisouuuuus hahahha.. and ahaksss look at that guy that sells panettone.. niceeeee hahaha

Yes yes.. as always Vero wud go anywhere in style.. and that includes to the market hehe

In the evening we went to their night market.. Sonia as always wud go on the merry go round..

Marion and her hunk :op

So ok heres the first few pics that were taken when we got into Paris city... it is indeed a Macarons city ey... these ones cost $55 euro a kg... we bought a few pcs and they tasted delish... oh to someone who wrote an email to me and asking where to get baking stuff while in Paris.. well this is the place BUT the things here aint cheap... their nordic ware pan cost 41 euros so u are better off buying em in Singapore... err well if ur planning to go to Singapore that is...

Yep even their McDonald sells Macarons hahaha... 0.90 euro cents per pc... not nice!



It was super cold earlier on eventho its not snowing in Paris....

Lots of shops selling deserts and chestnuts




And of cos what a trip down Avenue des Champs Elysees without popping into Laduree ey...

I shall put aside the 'jealousy' part but may I have that Panettone pls? Geram sebab diorang punya is so so tebal.

Where bread is concerned, do you have an inkling whether or not breads being sold there are not all halal?? Just curious :-)

My word verif. is 'hantar' (so pls hantar that panettone to me, har3)
