Loo in Paris

Ha, there's something "interesting" in the street of Paris.. the green colour public toilet.. U can see lots of these little green colour toilets nearby Eiffel Tower. What's so interesting about this toilet is that, it is programmed to automatically open the door 15 minutes later on.... if one hasn't finish doing his/her business within 15 minutes, that is it.... he/she will be "exposed" ... hahahhaa.... Hehehe, so don't bring any reading materials to the loo or spending your own sweet time inside there :P

And another thing, it's not free to use the toilet in most cities in Europe.. One has to pay 0.5 Euro per visit (even inside fast food outlet like MacDonald as well), which is equivalent to RM2.50 per visit... :D

Eiffel Tower

Eiffel Tower...

Eiffel Tower - This is the most expected monument for those who visited Paris! I think everyone has seen its pictures... It can be regarded as a symbol of human civilization. Going to Paris without visiting the Tower, is equal to going to Beijing without visiting the Great Wall.

The Tower is visible everywhere within Paris. It has a height of 324 meters and there are actually 3 different levels of platform (square shaped) that one can go. Naturally, you need to pay more if you want to go to a higher platform.

There was a huge crowd with long line up queue... Everyone who went to Paris want to visit this monument.. Have to wait for at least 40 minutes for our turns. But still worth it.. There were also a few soldiers guards around the area. I'm just thinking, if terrorists are wanted to destroy the Tower, those soldiers won't be able to stop them. There are just too many tourists... definitely, it is impossible to verify each one to see who looks suspicious. There's lots of Africans selling souveneirs over there as well - eiffel tower key chains, postcards etc etc....

After passing the entrance, It was time to go up to the Eiffel Tower... but before that, we have to wait for the huge elevator. As usual, the escalator is packed with visitors, just like “sardines”. . We could feel the height as soon as we stepped out from the elevator, and it was very windy at that moment.. Nice cool feelings... There isn’t any solid wall, cos the whole Tower is a piece of huge fantastic, magnificent iron framework. We really have a good time, hugging & kissing, besides enjoying the panaromic view of Paris :)

This New Year is sort of different from all the other new year that had been celebrated so far... Cos the recent catastrophe that occured that claimed so many innocent lives over many nations..

Hoping that year 2005 will be a better year.. Continue to pray for all the tsunami victims and their families..

Trip to Paris

WOOOHOOO!!! The Eiffel Tower !!! We visit the most spectacular monument on the first day of our trip to Paris. . Going to Paris without visiting the Eiffel Tower, is like going to Beijing without visiting the Great Wall. We visited many other famous scenetic tourist spots as well, like Arc of Triumph, La Defense, Notre Dame, Louvre Museum (including viewing one of the world-known famous artwork Mona Lisa in the Italian Section over there), Avenue des Champs-Elysees (Or Paris Great Road), Palace of Versailles, etc etc...

Making babies.... :)

Yeah.. Yeah... Finally one of my dreams come true. So happy... I have always wanted to go Paris/France for long time already, that's indeed one of my dream vacation place. And now, finally my dream is into reality.. Wow..

Few weeks prior to departure, i discussed with few friends regarding things to do in Paris, the popular famous tourist spots to visit & shopping as well.. Haha.. unexpectedly, one of my friends mentioned.. "making baby".. Everyone of us has a good laugh hearing her mentioning that.

I don't know why she wanted a baby "Made in France" so much.. Apparently, that's one of her "project" during her honeymoon period in France with her hubby. Haha, i don't know how hard they tried but apparently, their plan is successful... She's pregnant after that.. and not only she manage to "make baby", but.. even better.. "make babies"... She's pregnant with twin pregnancies.. haha.. expected to deliver around CNY..

work... work...

Aiyo, it's festive season again.. Deeparaya.. So nice seeing frens having long holidays & balik kampung, but so sad,i still have to work during those period. :( Further more, working situation is more busy than usual cos lots of motor vehicle accident cases.. especially those youngsters who involved in MVA late at night with severe head injuries.. These people really don't appreciate their lives. Most of those cases with severe head injuries normally have very bad or poor prognosis. Even if their lives are saved, normally they end up becoming vegetative or semi coma, and will become burdens to their family members for the rest of their lives.
