Paris in May!

Paris, France 

Day 1 

This is my third time to Paris and I have wanted to explore out of Paris but the weather was really bad. I decided not to take the risk of falling sick and stay in the capital instead. There is nothing much in this capital so I revisited the same attractions again.

Duck Confit

I had duck confit for lunch. It is a french dish and many restaurants in Paris serve this dish. This duck confit I had was disappointing cos the skin was soggy. The skin should be well-browned and crisp, meat is slowly cooked till meltingly tender with the right amount of fats.


This is my third time seeing the Notre-Dame and I finally have the chance to enter the cathedral.

I was lucky to witness the service in Notre-Dame and listening to the Great Organ playing in the cathedral was an absolutely amazing experience.

You can watch the short clip of the service in this video.

I love ice cream! The best thing about this shop is you can choose as many different flavors to fit into the cup. I chose pistachio, chocolate chips, tiramisu and nutella. If only the ice cream in Singapore is this good!


Day 2

The Louvre

I wanted to see the Mona Lisa painting but the museum is closed on every Tuesday.

Grand Palais

Petit Palais

The admission into Petit Palais is free and you find a collection of paintings and drawings here.

I decided to have my dinner at Bofinger which was highly recommended by a Parisian. I was really excited to be able to eat at one of the oldest Brasserie in Paris.

The restaurant is beautifully decorated and cozy.

This is one the nicest sweet white wine I had ever tried!

Foie Gras

I chose foie gras as my starter. Nice! Next time I will try their famous fresh oyster!

Pan fried salmon steak

Nicely cooked salmon steak! Nice sear on the outside and the inside is still tender and moist.

Warm chocolate cake

The warm chocolate cake is not really as good to my expectations. However, it is still and enjoyable dining experience from the start to finish. Fabulous food and excellent service at a reasonable price. I will definitely be back again!

Till then..I am going to Paris for my 4th time end of this month! Je t’aime Paris!

    Enjoyed your Paris itineraries. Hope you managed to get a good duck confit on one of your visits to Paris. You’re definitely correct that the skin should be well browned and crisp and the meat should be so tender that it just falls off the bone. At least the salmon looks delicious!

      Thank you! I really love Paris and there is never a dull moment to be in this romantic city. Felt like a long time since I am there again…
