Many friends were fair to Paris after their European trips. Crowded, small hotels, French are not the friendliest, shops close early, and not open on Sundays… Despite these complaints, I haven’t changed my impressions to the city every time I visited: She is a gorgeous woman, a bit arrogant, carefree, with her own definition of style. If you understand the inner side of her, you’d enjoy everything she gave you. Similar to French – they know how to enjoy their life, and love their life and carefree. Why don’t you take it slow, and let me show you how a Local French lives in Paris.
今次落腳的酒店一出門對著凱旋門，只要步行幾個街口可到位於Champs Elysees 的 Laduree 的本店，很喜歡今次座位的安排，一眼可看盡 不同的角落。
My stay was perfect – facing Arc de Triomphe, which is just a few blocks away from Champs Elysees where you can find the flagship of Laduree. Love the seat arrangement where you can have a full glace of every corner.
Ham Salad – many veggies inside. Dessert was apple pie.
Rose Tea 味道一流，立即買了回港。
Love the rose tea. Bought home right away.
Such a beautiful store. Every corner deserves a snapshot.
The interior of the whole restaurant.
The main store is very spacious with different dining zones. Must come back for more selfie!
A Day of Art and Culture
全球最美的書店 – 好樣本事。
The World’s most beautiful bookstore – VVG Something
VVG Something is perfectly blended in the Huashan 1914 Creative Park where the old vinery factory is well preserved. When you entered the bookstore, as if you arrived at a tiny castle of elegance and grace. The high-ceiling building has two floors; there is a decent bar table on the lower floor where you can chill out with a cup of coffee. As you walked further down, you would imagine you were in an art museum with the different styles of painting along the way. A restaurant and a florist shop are down the ally. Cozy and comfortable. Up to the second floor, you can feel the good taste of the shop owner with the collection of books and lifestyle grocery – where you will never get bored with the shelves of aesthetics, design, art and dining.
Restaurant, café and florist shop on the ground floor. Love the tiles from original walls and floor with elegant tiles.
Shop with a variety of lifestyle grocery on the second floor, or just a flip of your favourite books at leisure.
Take your time as much as you want. Or have a coffee break downstairs.
Huashan 1914 is well preserved with the nature – giant trees grow by the old buildings and new branches grow over the old trees whose roots are well protected.
Sometimes, it is perfect to keep the imperfect wall – represents the beauty at the same time.

香色 Xiang Se – A laid back afternoon at Southern France!
Changdeokgung – UNESCO World Heritage Site
The Changdeokgung has become a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997. It is one of the most beautiful palaces in Korea for its perfect integration with the nature. The photo was taken in the backyard of the Changdeokgung, which was only used by Emperor’s concubines.
Taken at the imperial pharmacy. Has the charming colour of RED told you its beauty of history?
Every single detail was well preserved in the palace. Look at the elegant and sophisticated chairs and wall paint.
Si Wha Dam
A place for stylish Korean cuisine – the cuisine is presented with the form of art. Well accompanied by the tableware made by local contemporary artists.
The healthy choice of the day.
The restaurant offers the highest quality Korean beef (grading A+), known as flower brisket. The Korean beef is finely selected with the best brisket right between 13rd ribs of each cow. Flower is named after the shape of snowflakes.
The beef is served after charcoal barbecue. Best served with a dip of salt, then the sauce. The side dishes are also very delicious.
The family cooking restaurant has run for more than 20 years. Affordable and value for money with more than 20 dishes of appetizers! Recommended by the locals who usually come after work!
Interesting to explore a collection of the owner’s past memories.
