Madame Tussaud’s – London

Visiting London’s Madame Tussaud’s is one of our to-do lists and after checking their website to buy tickets online, we decided that maybe it’s better if we buy from the counter so we won’t be pressured by the time indicated on our tickets. I mean, plans may always be changed and we may not know if we will have an early or late lunch on our first day in town.

After we settled in our hotel, freshen up and had our first meal of the day at the restaurant nearby, we picked up some things that we will need for the next days and finally, we went to Madame Tussaud’s.

Chilly, Rainy Saturday Afternoon at the Avenue des Champs-Élysées (Part 2)

It was so crazy cold and we had to buy scarves because our layers of clothes are no longer protecting us from the chilly weather. I got myself a fur hat (that I love) plus a small and EXPENSIVE umbrella. Can you imagine, it was 8 euros for a small, regular-looking umbrella!  In Manila, that would be around 30 pesos. Oh, well! I know, I know. I am not in Manila. I will stop ranting now. 🙂 We just badly need it so we do not have a choice but to get one. Read More

Chilly, Rainy Saturday Afternoon at the Avenue des Champs-Élysées (Part 1)

It was our last Saturday in Paris and unlike the previous days, it was raining from morning until late afternoon.  Since it was our only day left to tour the rest of the city, our plan was to take our time and see the avenue until we reach the Arc de Triomphe. My man needs to be prepared when it comes to excessive walking, a.k.a. window shopping. I think it is a common thing with men. They hate going to malls and taking so much time looking around.  So if your store has a couch or chair, they will remember your brand!  But it’s not like we are always in Paris, right? Therefore, expectations were set and add on was the non-stop rain outside, making it extra chilly. Read More

Evening lights - Louvre Museum

Photo Gallery: Touring The Louvre Museum

With the chance to explore one of the world’s largest museum, we did not waste any time and spent the rest of our Saturday afternoon in Louvre. But due to time constraint, we only explored the area towards the Denon Wing where the Mona Lisa painting is displayed. The next and succeeding parts of my post about Louvre are photos that I took during our visit.

When we wake up unprompted,  feeling refreshed, we have slept enough. – Thrive, Arianna Huffington

With the busy life that we all have, how many times can you really say that you had a good night sleep? Or when was the last time you had a good sleep? C’mon, think and try to answer my questions 🙂 Read More

Chinese New Year Festivities at the River Hongbao (Part 2)

Fortunately for the 2014 celebration, we get the chance to visit the Barrage in the afternoon.  Though the lights in the evening are really attractive, I still appreciate the view during the daytime. You can forget the warm weather and instead, enjoy the different kind of fun that you can have here. Read More

Chinese New Year Festivities at the River Hongbao (Part 1)

2015 Chinese New Year is just around the corner, and before we welcome the Year of the Green Sheep, I want to share with you the photos that I took at the River Hongbao for the past 2 years that I have been here in Singapore. The exhibit show at The Float in Marina Bay lasts for almost 2 weeks, so if you are in the island during this time, you can have enough time to check out the show. Read More
