Europe Trip Part XI: Journey Home

Since I wrote these Europe Trip by days, it is safe to conclude that the whole trip took 11 days.

And then, suddenly it was time to go home. ooh man, so short! I have not finished enjoying Paris. and shopping. Well, maybe thats why we gotta go home, duit pun dah habis *cries*

From Hotel to Airport, we could not even bother to look at the Metro line. We already overestimated ourselves. When you have luggage, kid and stroller...just take that taxi. 

It was not like zaman muda-mudi where you bring yourself and carry your own luggage and can hop on-off train/metro/tube anytime.

Anyway, we left early so that we could arrive early. We were not that familiar with Paris CDG Airport. If it was Heathrow, bring it on babehhh. #fefelinglondoner

But, on serious note, if you have tax rebate to claim, which will be mind boggling if you do not have, if you are in Paris, please arrive early. The queue was too long. but it moved rather quickly. but still, you have to allocate time.

Right after I finished, I think we just have enough time to check in, go thru immigration, have a lil snack and changed at lounge, then it was already time to go home.

Home sweet home. 

Husna did not sleep on flight, I also could not sleep and watch movies.

While on the other lane, Hannan got to sleep and watched like 3 - 4 movies? #nocomplaint

ooh but I also watched movie called The Campaign. It is so funny that you laugh just by WATCHING the movie without listening to the sound. Alright, actually Hannan was laughing over sangat and then I just curi-curi tengok his screen at that time. #sadmomstoryonplane

seriously, #nocomplaint :)

I was jetlagged for 3 days, Husna was jetlagged for about a week. 

Still thinking appropriate place for our next family trip. Japan maybe?

Europe Trip Part X: Paris Day 2

Today was supposed to be shoppping day. But the weather in the morning was quite good i.e. not raining, so we rushed to Trocadero to take some more picture with Ms Eiffel Tower.

But, I think, we arrived rather too early. Still foggy. but we had fun anyway. People started to fill in quickly. The peoples selling the souvenirs were everywhere, and there were lots of them.

Then, we moved to Rue Cambon Street to find the Chanel store...:))))

Oh yes, due to rain day before, our HoHo ticket somehow got extension for another day.

This time we got to enjoy the top deck of HoHo.

 Had a lil breakfast, and diaper changed.

The store was already crowded. Haihhh, banyak duit betul semua orang.  This was us killing time while waiting for SA to be available. and finally we managed to get our SA - Mr. Frederique.

Husna trying out chanel. No, not for her of course. I was not sure which size to get so we tried on all the sizes. Finally, I settled with jumbo.

But, the Chanel that I wanted was not in store. and we have to come back later. So we headed to Dior.

Tak sia-sia melawat kawasan. Hannan actually like one of these bag so much, he bought them for me. hak hak hak..i mean, Alhamdulillah.

Husna also happy to receive this pretty flower from Dior. Ayah Husna kata "ni semua taktik jer.."

As we stepped out of Dior Boutique, it started raining heavily. Hannan ran back to the Dior boutique to tumpang the 

Next, we went to LV at Galleries La Fayette because I took several pre-order for friends.. Tapi, tapi, tapi, ter-berkenan pula kat this one Alma. So, terpaksalah berikrar janji setia takkan beli handbag untuk 5 tahun lagi. *cries*

Btw, I think we should have spent more time here. The mall is so beautiful and convenient especially for rainy days.

and oh boy, I thot purchasing handbags for other people would be fun, but not that fun really. lol. especially when the handbag ordered is not available. belum masuk nak packing lagi. I have utmost respect for all the Personal Shoppers out there.

Husna was already tired and sleeping in LV. As requested, I also bought Hannan's advanced birthday present here. A LV wallet. See, you give me lady dior, I give you LV wallet.

win - win :p

Then, IT IS TIME..! We went back to the Chanel store to buy #myfirstchanelflap. But, still had to wait some more till Mr. Frederique was free. *sigh*

Luckily while waiting, we were served with drinks and biscuits. Ayah Husna kata "all these they have cost in their handbag prices.." Well, he is all "chirpy" and opinionated in handbag boutique, doesn't him? But most importantly, he was still there, also waiting.

It was already towards the end of the day. Husna was also already tired .

And after waiting patiently to burn invest my hard-earned-money -_- , 

Mr Frederique was finally available. 

I tried the Beige Goldware Jumbo size flap and sooOoo happy, paid and off we went back to our hotel. Stopped by kebab store to tapau for our dinner.

Time to do major packing. We were heading home tomorrow.

Europe Trip Part IX: Paris Day 1

For day 1, we dedicated for sightseeing. I pre-purchased online hop-on hop-off (apparently known as HoHo) from The Big Bus company. 

Initially, I thot HoHo would be a better idea than riding on the metro to cover as much as tourist attractions as possible. It was indeed a good idea. Paris Metro is not really child friendly, and we had to carry the stroller.

Furthermore, hujannnn..! At least we get to see all round Paris in "comfort" of bus ride..:) 

Where we saw the rain stopped or rather bearable, we hop off.

But rain or no rain, Paris is always a good idea..:) plus I said to Hannan, 

"barulah Husna ada feel oversea.." 

wahhh gittew untuk sedapkan hati.

Enjoy the pic!

Eiffel Tower

see, rain or no rain, Husna was still happpy.

The Lourve

Along River Seine
while waiting to Hop On again.

Notre Dame
The queue was rather long. Seb baik dah pernah masuk zaman muda mudi dulu. Plus as you can see, Husna was sleeping.

Best place to take picture with Eiffel Tower.

Revert, reverse, moving forward!

Salam and Hello~ 

 So much to update so little time. #excuses #takbaiktipu. lol. truth is I keep thinking to change to the free and easy blogging platform. So finally, what push me is, DOMAIN RENEWAL. I am back, banyaknya post tertangguh e.g. 

 1) Paris 
2) Krabi 
3) Manila 
4) Korea 
5) Husna first day of playschool 
6) My second Pregnancy; i'm 35 weeks at the moment. Alhamdulillah..:)
7) Husna at school

For 2014, I actually went to 5 new countries
Australia, Switzerland, Thailand, Philippines and South Korea. 

and I cant wait to share (well, I have shared about Switzerland)..I mean I cant wait to share about all other journey.

and I think I should write document more about Husna here too. So she may read it later and know how great her childhood is. Wahhh, nak mengungkit ke? No lah, because I actually enjoy reading other peoples writing about their activities with their children. Dulu selalu rasa, apakah??? Well, motherhood tend to change (almost) everyone.

till then
