Bonne année 2009 à tous!

May this new year bring many opportunities to your way,
to explore every joy of life...
And may your resolutions for the days ahead stay firm,
turning all your dreams into reality, 
and all your efforts into great achievements.

Wishing everyone a very happy new year from freezing Tour Eiffel, Paris ♥
Although freezing, I still love the lights, buildings, and scenery of Paris ^^

The taxi from Tour Eiffel to our hotel cost €40! O_O Normally it costs less than €15! Oh well, it's new year, what can I say...
Walking is absolutely not an option in this weather (-4°C at night!). Metro has ceased operation after midnight. It was really hard to stop a taxi, and the traffic around Tour Eiffel was pretty much jammed. Although my bro regretted not having tried to bargain at all... 

In truth, I wanted to stay warm in our very nice aparthotel (Adagio City Paris Opera) and sleep over the new year countdown (for I'm too tired & in need of a looong sleep), but it would've been such a waste of opportunity (above all things) to miss the Paris experience of new year! So, after a 2-hour rest, we headed out to dinner at a nearby Japanese restaurant called Tsubomi (owned by a Chinese :P), and from there went to Tour Eiffel by taxi. Too cold, too lazy, and too tired to take the metro. Waited at Tour Eiffel around 1 hour, freezing obviously, but took that opportunity to take lots of photos :D It was very crowded, and the firework was so standard,  it made me disappointed. I totally expected a much more grandeur celebration! But the flashing lights on Tour Eiffel at 00.00 was really pretty :)

Btw, I need a Euro sign (€) on my keyboard! -_- I hate having to copy & paste it all the time.

Will write later when I've reached Singapore (or Jakarta).
Au revoir! ~~


"There are those relationships that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous..."
