  3. The crispy, creamy dessert! OMG! it looked so yummy. Do you know how to make it? maybe we can try to make it if we have time. I haven’t cooked Japanese Noddle foe a long time. But I prefer with sauce. The sauce is the best part!

    1. I think French desserts are almost impossible to copy at home. They are just so precise and you need to be a magician and chemist to create them! But they are lovely to enjoy here 🙂
      These had garlic-sesame sauce that I think you would LOVE! Today we had cold noodles again – this time with peanut sauce. Yummy.

    1. My breakfasts here are SO amazing. You’re right – I’m really going to look back on those pastries and sweet milk. Oh yeah, and the awesome yogurt! Yesterday I bought a chestnut yogurt from the supermarket to enjoy one last time 🙂

    1. It is beautiful and great for people-watching, unlike the Fraser River which is filled with logs and mud 😛
      The dinner was lovely. I love fresh cherry tomatoes. Yup, always eating too much. Every single day!

  7. You have been eating wonderful foods every day. When I look your blog, I always am slobbering all over my mouth. Today we have a meal at a restaurant in Richmond, but we forgot to take pictures for you.
    Cindy, Why don’t let Seline to take more photos for you?
    When you dry the four pieces coverings, you must miss your home very much I think.

    1. Your comment made me smile so much! I hope you guys had a great lunch in Richmond. Too bad you didn’t take any photos, but I’m sure you all had a lovely meal. Which restaurant?

      I do! Seline prefers being IN the photo while I prefer being behind the camera. 😉 But we do switch around occasionally!

      What four piece coverings are you talking about?

  9. Cindy, 除了艾菲爾鐵塔以外, 羅浮宮, 凱旋門, 奧賽美術館, 聖母院, 賽納河等地都可以去觀光, 但要注意: 一, 夜晚不要去任何地方. 二, 看見黑人強硬推銷手環或其他紀念品, 千萬躲開,不要買. Alexandre is so cute boy, but be careful while you play with him. Grandpa.

    1. I can’t really read that without Google Translate so you can tell me what you wrote when I get back!

    1. It’s sometimes hard to make room for uploading photos and blogging, especially after playing with Alexandre from dinnertime until 10:00, but it is a lot of fun to look at the photos and write on my virtual “diary”. 🙂

    1. Yay! Thank you Mom. All of the food was so great. Of course I finished it. The crepe itself was quite thin and there were just some slices of tomato and goat cheese. I loved it and I wish I could eat 3… hehehe 😀

      1. I found myself wanting to go in search of more “adventure” destinations this summer, which for me means places known for natural beauty and where the language isn’t one I speak fluently. So I don’t know how soon I’ll return to Europe, but Paris will always be really special to me because it’s one of the first places I knew what it meant to fall in love with a city and where I felt I left feeling changed. I hope you get to return soon!
