UP And UP On Eiffel Tower, Paris

FINALLY, WE REACHED EIFFEL TOWER AFTER THE LONG WALK.....

Our determination... 
More from Aaron and my friend... their hard efforts paid off....
Took a few pictures before we crossed over to feel the "real thing"....

Then when we saw the super long queue at the Eiffel Tower, Aaron and my friend were quite disappointed... Not me though, that means we couldn't go up, right?  Both of them wanted so badly to go up the tower whereas I rather stay down and look up instead..... *height phobia*... Well, actually I have mixed feelings.... 
Part of the Long Queue from one end to the other.....
Someone looks happy though... 
Thought we didn't have to go up....

I told them to go ahead, I would wait for them to come down but the Super Long queue was holding them back.... then they saw a sign... "For disabled/prams, line up here" and the queue was empty!!  Oh...oh.... that means..... 
Yes, that means.... I have to come up!!
All the way up... I CLOSED MY EYES and told them to block the view when it was moving...

For those on wheelchair, the ticket cost 4 Euros and that goes for the companion as well..
Normal ticket cost 11 Euros... we saved a fair bit here again!! 
So I sacrificed my FEAR for them.. after all, they have done a lot for me... 
hahahaha....
Anyway, so glad I did come up.... 
Not so scary actually... I only created my own fear!
Everyone is happy!
Scenery was breathtaking.... too bad our cameras didn't give much credit....
The scenes before sunset....
I couldn't see much of the view sitting down.... so....

I need to stand up for a short while.... to show my presence.... 
hahahaa....
We took a lot of pictures before and after sunset....
It is really a Great Privilege to be up on Eiffel Tower...
I never thought it would become a reality for me.... 
Thank you!!

  6. A blessing in disguise indeed. I have not been up there and I don't think I will due to the long queue and also the weak local currency so no travelling for me. Good to see all of you enjoying the view up there, especially you for conquering your fear of heights.

  9. See, I told you Europe is a very "cacat friendly" place. Top tip for the travelers: next time, break your travel companion's leg when wanna go to places with lots of queue, trade off is you have to take care of him/her, but the trade off is worth it hahaha!

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
