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!

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
