Honeymoon part 3

Day 8 – Paris

Might as well be done it with; blogging the last entry of the honeymoon I mean. Really busy and tired lately and I dont know why! Very strong urge to lump all pictures in a slideshow and be done with it! Since we also got pretty sick with photo taking from the 8th day onwards despite gorgeous scenary. Wonder how can Edison, Gillian plus other girls take soOooo many obscene and bo-liao pictures all the time?! Okie I’ve side tracked.

I dont care liao, the pictures wont be in chronological order liao.

I have to say all these pictures look absolutely breathtaking on my lappy. It’s really not impressive on wordpress. Lousy.

Eiffel Tower by night

Certainly much more beautiful because it’s lit up!


The tower has flashing glitter lights every hour for 5 minutes. If you missed it, you have to wait pretty long.

We actually took a cab out from hotel to catch it and after sharing with the other couple, it’s S$40 for us. Total cab fare was S$80!

We visited Fragonard Perfumery and museum which was pretty interesting. They explained how perfume was made and the difference in technology all these days, as well as explaining the differences between Eau de Parfum(EDP) and Eau de Toilette(EDT) etc, i.e, their percentage of concentration of perfume oil. If you think I can remember the specific percentages of concentration and list here with class, you are SO WRONG! Here’s a peek from Wikipedia. Keke.

Concentration

Perfume types reflect the concentration of aromatic compounds in a solvent, which in fine fragrance is typically ethanol or a mix of water and ethanol. Various sources differ considerably in the definitions of perfume types. The concentration by percent/volume of perfume oil is as follows:

* Perfume extract (Extrait): 15-40% (IFRA: typical 20%) aromatic compounds
* Eau de Parfum (EdP), Parfum de Toilette (PdT): 10-20% (typical ~15%) aromatic compounds. Sometimes listed as “eau de perfume” or “millésime”.
* Eau de Toilette (EdT): 5-15% (typical ~10%) aromatic compounds
* Eau de Cologne (EdC): Chypre citrus type perfumes with 3-8% (typical ~5%) aromatic compounds
* Splash and After shave: 1-3% aromatic compounds

In short, the more concentrated of perfume oil, the more expensive the scent will be as more flowers are needed to concoct it. More importantly, the fragrance can lasts longer too. I bought a bottle there.

Then we had 3hours of shopping where we bought a few stuff. Really, not alot. Considering sooOoo little time we had. He bought 2 bags, I bought 2 bags and a watch. Will probably upload pictures of all my buys in the next entry bah.

Day 9 Paris – London
I certainly love the architectures here more than the ones in Paris but dearie feels the opposite. We definitely prefer London to Switz and Paris as it’s much easier to communicate for most are fluent in English. And finally I could watch movies on the hotel LCD TV and actually UNDERSTAND what they were speaking. Somehow the people are just nicer here, less racism towards Asians. Paris is the worse. Finally I’ve found a country where customer service is worse than us. Singapore customer service sucks but at least most wont openly give you attitude. Seriously, just because the French are born taller with crooked noses atop freckled skins then they feel so superior. Oh please.

All people are equal, it is not birth, it is virtue alone that makes the difference. – Voltaire

Dammit loh…I uploaded like 20pictures and suddenly wordpress cant capture and I have to do it again.

Alright…that’s all for now..
