The serene Grand Canal at Chateau Versailles. Immediately reminded me of that scene in Marie Antoinette when Kirsten Dunst and the others opened up champagne bottles here during sunrise.
The biggest Louis Vuitton store. Had to shelter here for an hour because of rain, which resulted in my mom buying a new luggage haha.
The constant view you get when you drive around Cote D'Azur. We rented a Mercedes around France and got constantly overtaken by these types of cars; Bentley, Maserati, Aston Martin and the like. Mercedes and Audi are like Kijang there now.
Cannes beach. A bit dissapointed by the fact that this famous beach are occupied by expensive restaurants. You have to dine there in order to swim. I prefer the more secluded beach in St Tropez.
My mom went into this small grocery store and asked if they sell cherries and these guys noticed the SLR camera she brought with her, and automatically shouted "HEYY PAPARAZZI!" and asked for a picture taken. How cute!
The Queen, Prince William, Prince Harry and Camilla during the Queen's birthday parade near Buckingham Palace.
Went to see Jewels ballet at Royal Opera House London, lucky to get a box seat and was mesmerized by the interior.
My dad said London Eye has the greatest ferris wheel. The Singapore Flyer one, although taller, are still incomparable. If you noticed the Sing one looks like an upside down bicycle wheel with two pillars to make it stand up (which looks ugly), whereas the London one was pulled up by 6 massive steel ropes for balance (in picture, sorry I'm bad at explaining civil engineering stuff).
We were lucky to be able to dine at Jules Verne, at Level 2 Eiffel Tower, which I reserved a month before. I strongly suggest you dine there next time you go. You. Won't. Regret. It.
Kong Bar & Restaurant, on the top floor of Kenzo store, if you noticed the glass dome roof, that's it. I'm in love with this restaurant. The interior (Phillipe Starck), the people who dine there (seriously chic, especially the Japanese group sitting next to me, whom I suspect one of them is Kenzo, and one woman wearing head to toe Marni), the waiters bedazzling in tuxedoes, and the food superbly delicious.
Moulin Rouge. I remembered attending a show there as a kid with my family and the rest of the tour group, and in one act the cabaret dancers went out with everything but a bra, and came down and asked my dad to join dancing with them, and I was pleading in horror not to let my father go to the stageeeee.
