10D9N Paris Trip : Day 7 - Day 9

Day 7: 
we went to Versailles to check out the hugeeeeeeeeeee palace! it was kinda boring because everything was refurbished... everything looks so new :( and it was an hour train ride from the city since it's at the outskirts...
weather was shitty that day... FREAKING 5 DEGREES! and all i have was my cotton cardigan! YAY
it's a 700 acres huge palace. what a waste of money. no more pictures for you :(
the palace was sooo huge we didn't have the chance to eat lunch outside.. had this for dessert... IT WAS SOOO GODAMN GOOD. probably the best pastry i had in Paris.... it's like everything in this pie was meant to be coated with caramel... sorry for the rantings but OMG
Day 8:
weather was beautiful! so happy to see the sun... so i nagged my mom to go Eiffel Tower with me again! FOR NIGHT VIEW! 
  momma always wanted to try the famous restaurant recommended by the guide book so here we are.... its quite pricey though!
ordered the foie gras salad and sandwiches since foie gras is really really expensive in Malaysia and i've never tried before wtf. didn't liked it anyway. hahahaa.
 
the waiter asked us if we wanted desserts and showed us this tray.... ooooooookay. stunned.
i chose the raspberry macaroon and momma chose strawberry tart!
 
went shopping the whole day and headed to Eiffel Tower around 6pm :) oh and this is in Hermes... a 3 floors Hermes. beat that. so beautiful@@
 
  
since Summer was near,the sun in Paris only sets at 10pm...we waited almost 4 hours for the night view and the temperature started dropping every hour... :/ mom was sneezing non-stop but i didn't feel anything -_-'' probably was too excited....
TA DAH.. this was around 9.45pm ....can you see how excited i was?!

10pm sharp... they have small small lightbulbs surrounding the whole tower blinking hahaha..but it was only for awhile :(
momma didn't wanna come at first because she finds it stupid just to go back for the night view =_=she took back all her words after seeing this.... really. hahaha
had bacon chips in the hotel room!!!! only 0.99 euros!!! so cheap!!! i loved it ;] HEHEHEHEHE
Day 9: 
another shopping day!!!!! a lot of food pics though hahaha....!Godiva strawberries!
this time with milk chocolate&nuts! but the strawberries were kinda small compared to the ones i previously ate......
 Laduree!!!!! last minute souvenir buys :P
 
bought a strawberry crepe kinda thing... i loved it! so creamy!

 lunch was great! my smoked salmon pizza....the amount of  smoked salmons they gave were incredible hahaha!

mommy's duck confit..
 the baked potatoes were great...it deserves a picture of itself. SO SO SO SO SO GREAT.
walked around the streets looking for the oldest bakery shop in Paris named Stohrer...savoury pies... @@ they look like desserts to me wtf
 bought a strawberry tart there... so good!
Paris was so amazing :( kthxbai...

we went to Basilique du Sacre-Coeur(oh yes,i googled the name HAHAHA) church located in Montmarte! weather started to become really shitty since that day... kept drizzling non-stop :(

 
the church was built right on top of the mountain, we had to climb like shit to get there. and after we've reached we just realized there was a cable car bside us. Okay fol. and here's Paris city's view babeh!
i just love McDonalds so much i've been nagging my mom to go with me AGAIN. ordered bacon burger for a change! Pork is the best :) hehehe.
 Montmarte's markets... flooded with tourists.... went in to this pastry shop selling tarts. lol. it tasted bad. i hated it. a lot a lot a lot. 
edible flower pot...they have this in Malaysia also...so yeah,no biggie.
Macaroons.... Laduree's one are still the best hehe.
went to Opera after that... touristy shot. it was raining again. sigh.
La Fayette shopping mall... 95% of the customers are tourists and 60% of them are from China ... LOL
Day 5:
booked a one day tour from the hotel.... went out from Paris to BELGIUM! it was a last minute decision actually.....Belgium was so nice omg T_T but we only went to Brugge, which is now one of the heritage sites...
 the boat tour there is a must....!!! MUST. breathtaking view!
 Belgium is famous for beers, chocolates,waffles & lace!
