This bookstore has been featured in a lot of popular films that it has become a tourist attraction.

Guess who I bumped into inside the store? None other than the beautiful Piper Perabo (Covert Affairs)

My French friend took us on top of the store to get amazing views of Paris, trust locals to know these stuff.

Fun Fact: Been to the Eiffel Tower twice already but still haven’t climbed it because it’s always crazy packed. One of my favourite man made structures though.

Can’t thank my friend Damien enough for taking the time to tour us around the city. Unfortunately I forgot the name of this super cute restaurant.

Update: Damien said the name of the restaurant is La Table du Palais Royal. Merci!

The kind of stunts I do that embarrass my friends and that I don’t always post (wink).

Forget Paris. Paris Belongs to Us. Paris Blues. Paris Express. Paris Holiday. Paris is Burning. Paris Trout. Midnight in Paris. Paris When it Sizzles. The Last Time I Saw Paris. An American Werewolf in Paris. Paris Hilton (lol!)

Paris is arguably one of the most cliched/used city in literature for very obvious reasons.  The place is truly magnifiqué. Its history is drenched with opulence (with a capital O), romance and tragedy like an overpriced cocktail with a lot going on but it’s so bloody good you keep coming back for more.

Of course, there are some people that feel the opposite.  Most common remark is that Parisians are rude. (I say if you think French people are rude,  go to Hong Kong).

This is obviously not the case for me. I love Paris. So much, I came back.  I also happen to have a lot of French friends and they’re really nice peeps.  Although, to tell you honestly, as much as I love listening to them speak their native language, my ears hurt when some of them try to speak in English (no offence, I have the weirdest accent too).

Sigh, if only I could speak and understand French, I swear my life would be extra perfect. Lol.  Ma soeur a un crayon jaune.

Je t’aime,

Geri
