A Cold Day in Versailles

Passing through the palace on my way to work, le grand palais seems a bit gloomy. The crowded tourists and busy streets yet barely hide the melancholy.

"Les jours sont peut-être égaux pour une horloge, mais pas pour un homme."
[The days may be equal to a clock, but not for a man.]

A Vintage Garden

Before this goes out of date, I'd better hurry post it :-) A french vintage inspired, garden themed wedding. And I really love doing the table decor, as always. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.


Sous Le Ciel de Paris

Sky of Paris has something that enchants anyone who sees it. Works on me! Hit the music and the magic of Paris will dance in the air :-)

Streets of Paris

Quai des Grands Augustins
I didn't have much chance to enjoy the city due to the work, but it doesn't mean I could't take pictures. From inside the car, on my way running here and there, that's the possibility I got mostly :-) 
Don't ask me where the pictures were taken, since  I am not familiar with this city ( though I love it very much )


Un Café au Coin

Pardon m for being away so long since the work really consumed my time, especially that I must prepare an exhibition in Paris. Now I've back but many tasks are still there, queuing *sigh*. But anyway, here's a little souvenir from the city of light, a series of pictures I've taken during my short trip.

FIrst story is, this small famous cafe that I've visited once I stepped in Paris. The Café de Flore, at the corner of Boulevard Saint-Germain and Rue St. Benoit, in the 6th arrondissement, is one of the oldest and the most prestigious coffeehouses in Paris, celebrated for its famous clientele.

The classic Art Deco interior of all red seating, mahogany and mirrors has changed little since World War II. It has hosted most of the French intellectuals during the post-war years. The cafe was associated with Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, Albert Camus, and other famous thinkers of the 1940s and 1950s.
