Parc du Disneyland, Paris

Fun, fun and loads of fun. Here is where our imagination come alive. There are nothing much too say but being here for a full day long is totally worth it and amazing. As we bought the ticket at the entrance, we were able to get student price which is way cheaper than booking online; at euro48 instead of euro70 if booking online. But to allow your enter the park as soon as possible, please arrived at around 9.50-10.00am.

Fourth ride, giggle.
Off to toon land.
Front gates. 
The euro48 entrance fee will allow you to enter two different park, disneyland and walt disney studio. Both park have their own attractiveness. Even they were build for children, but me was still enjoying all the games, rides and environment entirely.

Paris, France

Norm to be an oversea student is to visit this so-called city of love, Paris. Indeed visiting Paris is like visiting the whole France as the whole history of France begin here. The city is indeed beautiful with lots of spectacular view that surely gonna make you astonish. Still, nothing is perfect thus there are few places here that have the smelly kind of smell that is really hurtful to the nose.

Day one, visiting Le Tour Eiffle was surely amazing. First impression already make me realise the greatness of advertisement. The tower isn't as tall as am expecting. Am not saying that the KLCC is way greater but indeed it was and will always is. LOL. But astonishing fact bout the tower is that it changes it height over different seasons. This is due to its material, mostly steel that is able to expand and contract depend on the temperature of the surrounding. Amazing rite.

From the top.
Scenic aite.
There are two available option to climb over this tower; either by stairs or lift. As to save up money, me took the hard way up, climbing the stairs to the top will actually paid off with the mesmerizing view of the entire city of Paris. After climbing up and taking photos like crazy, we headed down which is thousand easier compared to when we climb up. Thus, to those sick people, lift is a better choice.

Old church.
This old church, Notre-Dame is beautifully architecture. All those details was spectacular but as me arrived here quite late at the day, didn't have the chance to have a grand tour inside. Thus, off to love bridge. Just a walking distance from the church, we walked here.

Love bridge.
Locked love.
Day 3, we off to another church. I got to say, travelling in Europe will bring you to lots and lots of old and new, modest church. They really good in advertising their church turning them into some sort of tourist point. This time, me crashed into the church and I got to say, the light outside isn't inside. LOL.

With the mission to find the hidden treasure inside this museum was actually quite tough. The naked statue, portraits that cost millions and lots of other historic materials are kept here. As an european student, I got free pass in. Happy me indeed. LOLs.

Christianity art.
That little thing, Mona Lisa.
Later, when people ask, have you seen Mona, I can proudly said yes I do and her father's name is Lisa. 

Close up of the pyramids or perhaps my face.
After the grand tour in the museum, we grabbed this little sweet thing, macaroon. It isn't make us full but enough to taste it. Roar. Actually, the texture is a bit chewy and sweet. Perhaps in Malaysia, you can have laddu in exchange.

My travel-mates.
Eiffle at nite.
Disneyland, will later make other post.
Jardin du Luxembourg.
On the very last day, we all off for a little community time where we all squeezed into the crowd, sun bathing together with them all. Enjoying the glazing hot sun.

Iceland : Hot Dip In The Blue Lagoon

Basically this is our very last activity before heading back to Keflavik Airport and waited for our very next flight back to London at dawn tomorrow. One of our activity, The Northen Light Hunting wasn't go as plan. Maybe it just not our luck thou. Basically the occasion here in Blue Lagoon is just dipping and swimming. The place is spectacular and absolutely one of the thing in the world. Perhaps two. I think there is another place that have this kind of baby blue water in Turkey, Pamukkale if am not mistaken.

First step.
Baby blue.
Being here was indeed a new experience to me. Not just go dipping into the baby blue water, but the environment itself was absolutely stunning. The lagoon itself is surrounded by a small man-made mountain using larva stones and this place itself is stranded in the middle of larva field. Unless you have car, being here by bus was actually the best option. If you thinking of walking, forget it, the weather is just too cold for that.

Another thing is that, one thing that is totally new for me is the human exposure. Thank god the changing room isn't the mixing of men and women but still even all of us is men, the scenery is totally different. People in the changing room was so open, and by open I mean really really open. They didn't care about their shuttlecock and showing them to other people isn't a big deal. Without any restriction, from a small kids to an old granpa, they are just let the shuttlecock fly freely in an open area.

One thing that I didn't understand is that they can chit chatting with their friends, mates and even strangers without anything covering the shuttlecock. Even they have towel with them, they preferred to put them on their shoulder instead of covering their shuttlecock. Wow. They walk for over 100m in nude, passing like 40 people and still they are OK with that. Omai mai, totally a new blow to my head.

Steaming hot water.
Reflection of sunlight.
But one thing that I noticed is that they didn't care to show it and other people didn't care to look for it either. Everybody is showing theirs to one another. Multi-shaped, different length and colour but still over the same sex organ. They are not judgmental. And recalling this, its is like the day later in "Padang Masyar" where everyone in nude and nobody cares.

Partner in crime.
And me.
The weather that day was just lovely. It changes every 5-10 minutes, sometimes got cloud cover, sometimes got sun, and even snow for few minutes. The memory was indeed spectacular. This is a must reach place to whoever go to Iceland.

Pinch mouth due to coldness.
More coming
At the entrance before head off.
And this is the outside lagoon.
Overall, trip to Iceland was totally worth every single penny I spent. Most of my "being an oversea student's ambitions" was achieved here. From the snow to the build a snow man, and many single bit and pieces of memory that was not been able to create elsewhere like the full frontal will surely be remembered till forever.
