It was the most awesome standby call up I ever had. I was jumping with joy when I knew that I was activated for a flight to Paris. Not only I get to come back to Singapore in time to spend New Year countdown with my loved ones, I also get to visit one of my favorite cities in my list. I can’t think of any women who will not love Paris. Other than our love affair with Louis Vuitton, there are also beautiful architecture and romantic atmosphere to fall in love with.
This is the place where Tom Cruise proposed to Katie Holmes at the top of Eiffel Tower. It was old-fashioned but it was definitely romantic. Every girl dreams of her own fairy tales and want to live happily ever happy with their charming prince. My ideal marriage proposal need not be fanciful but it would be rather just the two of us in a simple and romantic setting. :)
These are also some of the places that I have been to in Paris…
King Louis XIII at Palace of Versailles
Notre Dame Cathedral
Musée du Louvre
Da Vinci Code is one of my favorite movies and I was really thrilled when I saw The Louvre Pyramids. I didn’t get a chance to visit the museum but I will certainly be back for my next trip here.
Outdoor ice skating rink
How cool! If only there is winter season in Singapore as well..
And…Some bits and pieces of Paris…
I had the pistachio macaroon and it was so yum yum!
We ended our Paris trip with a lovely ride on the Ferris Wheel, overlooking Eiffel Tower and Champs Elysees. Simply Awesooomeeeee… :)
And of cos…Good Company to hang out with that has made my last trip of 2011 a delighting one! :)
Today is the last day of the year 2011 and it is also the time for reflection. I am not someone who can express myself well in words but I shall try my best here…
I graduated with my Diploma in Hospitality and Tourism Management and I entered the workforce straight after 3 years of poly life. I am really glad that I have fulfilled my dream job that has allowed me to travel around the world. This is the very reason why I have decided to pursue a tourism diploma. I am appreciating it everyday and enjoying what I am doing so much.
There is always a difference between paying to study and being paid to work. I always believe in this motivational quote “Every obstacle is destroyed through rigor.” Hard work will pay off at the end of the day. It took me some time for me to get used to working life but I have definitely grown mature along the way. I withdraw out from Junior College despite that I had the best ‘O’ levels result in my secondary school. I had the thoughts of dropping out of Poly too because it was tough to gain back the momentum to study after being a school dropout for a year. My dear friends, never give up trying on what you believe in. There will always be an open path for those who don’t stop trying. Having a positive minds can create very positive things in your life. Always believe that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
Also, I hope that I will not abandon my travel blog and continue to blog about my experience to share with my close friends and those who appreciate it. Buying my DSLR Nikon D5100 has brought me more joy than owning a Louis Vuitton or Prada bag. I will keep on shooting and improve my photography skills, bringing my dearest readers to feel what I want to portray through my lens. I do not know who or is there anyone who visit my blog but if you are reading this, thank you so much for visiting!
And viola, I wish everyone a Happy and Wonderful 2012 filled with abundance, joy, and treasured moments.
Enjoy your New Year Countdown with your loved ones at wherever you are in the world! :D
