Everything in life is fabulous, regardless.

Winter is Coming

Grafton Street Photowalk

Yes, I can feel it. Winter is coming, for me at least. I could never get used to this cold weather but I now know how to dress properly - layering is the key.

Orange

Dublin Street Photowalk

I'd never expect that I would enjoy a photowalk this much! Though it took me a while to be able to get a spot from ISPG meet up, it's all worth the wait :) People are genuinely nice which I like, I got really comfortable and became too talkative (LOL). I hope they didn't mind...

The theme was orange and snaps (comes in two), I had a hard time looking for something to photograph that'll stick to those two given words but I tried. Below were my submission, it's my first time okay? So please be nice...

COS

COS

Every time I go to COS, I always end up buying stuff there. This one for example... It's addition to my ever growing collection of leather bags which as far as I remember selling most of it last year. Now I'm accumulating them again. But I like this for everyday use and I can keep it inside my Speedy B.

On another note, I'm excited to attend my first meet up with Irish Street Photographers tomorrow, I'm thinking of carrying this bag and a FujiFilm camera with one zoom lens. I prefer carrying lighter stuff these days, much better for my back and shoulder I guess.

On Sunday, I'd be finally seeing my old friend Lisa, they flew all the way from Canada and decided to travel to UK and Ireland for good two weeks! I can't wait to see her and listen to her stories!

Happy weekend!

Beeftro Dundrum

Beeftro
Beeftro has an amazing brand and logo (I'm a sucker for all things funky and beautiful) a simple red cow says it all - you must gobble on steak! And so I did. Jane had the salmon though, but we both did enjoy our food. My steak? Bloody medium  well!

Busy as A Bee

Girl

My blabbing here has taken a back seat for sure as life took over. I've gazillion things to do and it never ends. I hope to finish my story about Paris though, I wish to publish a few (posts) before I go for another holiday.

The lady above is effortlessly chic - the hair, the scarf and all what she's wearing. It was taken in Paris while we were hanging outside Pompidou Centre. She must be passing the time just before she take her next flight.

Paris Day 2

Eiffel Tower

First thought when I was googling the Eiffel Tower was people might be exaggerating coz everyone says it's amazingly beautiful. And then I came to see it in person and was astounded of how fascinating it is truly. I don't know what it is but it's mind blowing, I want to look at it again and again. We actually came back thrice in different days just to stare it ツ

Rue de Commerce

The little park was along Rue de Commerce, the night before, I was eager to check where local Parisian do their shopping and found this little street five minutes walk from the Eiffel Tower. Of course, I got sidetracked - purchased some clothes and a bag to my heart's content tee hee. Shopping bags became heavier, we have to postpone our trip to Champs-Élysées and Notre Dame Cathedral (*chuckles).

Back in the hotel, we slept for few hours and look for something to eat near The Louvre. By the time we reach the museum, it's almost dark and was the perfect time to take picture of it's glorious surroundings, and there weren't too many people around since the museum is closed every Tuesday.

A quick hop in the train from London can bring you to Paris, and that's what we did! Off we went to the city of love in a whim! There's this enigmatic vibe when we were walking around town, I can't really pinpoint exactly but this city is compelling... 


Paris | August 2014

True enough, the Metro is dirty and yet it's functional and on time. It brings you at the heart of every museum, cathedral, palace you could ever think of. You can navigate the city with no difficulty at all and rely to Metro. The buildings are symmetrical to one another, plants and trees are properly cut, fresh and perfect.

We stayed at Mercure Paris Austerlitz Bibliothèque with the help of Skyscanner, relied on people's reviews, very helpful in any other way. I love love love this hotel! The room is modern and spotless, quite spacious to Paris standards. It's strategically located few steps away from Seine River, the metro station (Quai de la Gare) is just across the road. We buy fresh bread and cheese everyday at the bakery beside the hotel and I must have tasted all of their pastries, didn't care how much calories I've gain in the end *chuckles*

At night time we walked along the river and enjoyed the calming view, alongside, there's plenty of cafes and bars, we had our chicken dinner and some mojitos ^.^
