Sendayan Grape Farm



I think I have to update on our visit to Sendayan Grape Farm. I found it was hard to search for this farm info the days before we decided to go. If anyone need the information..

I love buying local especially on groceries. But too bad I found almost all seasonal fruits are imported mainly from US. Why do we have to import from the other part of world if we have highlands that can plants all these fruits? 

Local grape search brought us to Sendayan Grape Fram in Sendayan , Negeri Sembilan. Because we live in Bangi so I consider the farm isn't too far and reachable any time. Only 40mins from home.

It was actually a large hectare of farm, but the place was a bit run down. There's only one worker, pakcik Arshad that we met and he explained that they do not sell the fruits for commercial. Regardless of that, they still accept some visits from groups or preschoolers and even from Singapore. 




Black Opal



somehow Aariz geli pula grapes bulat2 tu


Dalam besar-besar kawasan tu, ini sajalah grapes yg masih 'hidup',  but Aariz enjoyed the place nevertheless just when he found chickens and ducks. Hmm..if only we have backyard chickens. And daddy is taking it into consideration since then....to my surprise!






this boy... fearless.

Sendayan Grape Farm is open everyday with RM5 charge per pax.

Paris : Moulin Rouge





It was raining a bit when we walked along rue des Abbesses in Montmarte district down to rue lepic for the Moulin Rouge. We asked someone about the direction and the first thing he told us that the area of rue lepic isn't good. Oh yeah, moulin rouge is an adult area yes we've prepared much for it pffttt

So what he really means was, 




Ok tak sesuai untuk budak2 ye.. Aariz was sleeping so just mummy and daddy 'enjoy' the view.
I really wanted to see the moulin rouge place

just because..


the movie I watched with my housemates masa zaman MMU dulu
hehe




And then of coz we didn't spent so much time there, takda apa-apa pun yang menarik. 
We hopped on the metro again and back to our cabin site at maison la fitte


dalam train..



And it was our last day in Paris, spring 2012.

InsyAllah I will update our 2nd Paris story , summer 2012.

Love Paris that much huh

Paris : up on a hill of Montmartre




From St Lazare, visiting 'our hotel' , we finally had a chance to hop on the metro at Gare St Lazare. It was here, this station connected to Disneyland parc (teringat percutian 2007). But we were heading up on a hill of Montmartre, so we get off at Abbesses (abes) station



 I like the metro sign in Paris.


We didn't plan to go here, tapi ternampak masa berjalan tu, a small garden with huge 'I love you' collections. Teringat masa time skolah dulu suka mengumpul ini..



ambik..romantic? 


Montmartre is located on a hill in north Paris. It has narrow cobble stone streets, which I like, and cafes side by side.


Ya pada hari siang memang nampak damai coz this place 'hidup' masa malam, nightclub district.

Hijabista minum kopi


Antara pengalaman yang saya tidak lupa apabila di sound penjaga kedai just because I said "Hi" and straightly asked direction. He said, we french don't Hi Hi. Maksudnya kena lebih manners bersopan daripada itu. ya, always bring your french pocket dictionary.  



I love souvenirs shops!



Montmartre is famous for the white dome Basilica, Sacre Coeur. It is said that this place was once a village of artisan ..


..but all I can say is the place was crowd with tourists. 




but this old man.. I liked him, always smile =)


the view of the city from the hill. We can see the new Paris over there..skyscraper buildings. 






and heading down could take forever..




Montmartre is a beautiful place, it still maintain the village look like despite the bursting Paris.

Paris : back in St Lazare and around Galeries Lafayette



We always wanted to go back to St Lazare. We've waited for 5 years for it =) For this trip we included St Lazare on our last day in Paris. Save the best for last?

Previously we were exploring La Defense, the business district in Paris. From there we get off at Haussmann- St Lazare metro and walked towards Paris Opera.






memang banyak hantu la di Europe ni, statue merata. isk3


Ever wonder what's it like inside Lafayette?



the French department store, hmm hmm


Nope, tak naik atas pun. All I saw was long queues. But I did some window shopping at the ground floor. 


Furla. Candy shoe in candy pink..nice






walking somewhere in Haussman blvd



bakery shop, I really wanted to try some macaroons.


my 1st macaroon in my life..pink, and that was it. Too sweet!


gare St Lazare, antara gare (train station hub) yang terbesar di Paris selain gare du Nord 

and just beside the gare is..


our hotel! Concorde Opera hotel.  If only the camera has captured the faces of excited couple here.
and of coz we walked inside


oh wow..very lavish hotel. Can't believe we stayed here during honeymoon. Thank you hubby!
But the furnitures has changed. 



walaupun ni gambar lama, but I never forget the love at first sight, I fall in love with Paris at my first sight 









Life.. we must  move on. The memories will cherish forever.
