All in a day :)

Today I woke up with a wonderful bright sunny day anda blue sky and was thinking maybe its a good time to check out the town and eventhough its still winter, somehow today it feels like Spring. Then maman invited me to go to a small pasar in the centre of Beauvoir and we had a good 10 minutes stroll to the town and i can only describe with words as i didnt have time to take pics as i was busy buying stuffs. Lets say maman do all the talking and i just carry stuffs :)
Then maman took me for a short tour of the Eglise or chapelle in Beauvoir.

Built in 1860, you can just imagine how old this chapelle is and its really pretty inside and maman and myself managed to sneak a prayer or two.....peaceful indeed...

L'eglise Romane de Beauvoir Sur Mer

Then later in the afternoon maman was showing me around her garden of what flowers are not dead and what is dead during the winter :)

I like the colours of dead plants with their leaves still attached....its just one of my facination :)

The Greens

The beautiul Camelias and parequets and violets are blooming

After the tour in the garden i had another exploration to do and this take me to Papa and his Jardine of wholesome goodness. The day before i was helping him planted some green peas and today we did the potatoes and radish and some salads. I must say this was my first time doing this and i enjoyed it very much as its my first time. So to all the potatoes, radishes and salads and peas that i help to plant....i hope you guys will bore a lot of food for us to eat during spring time :)

After the long walk i had with maman now, its time to say gooodnight and have a wonderful day to everyone from Beauvoir!

My First Valentine ever .....mon coeur

When my hubby said, ok mon petit coeur,I am going for a trip to the Netherlands for a Helicopter Crash Training Course in Rotterdam and you are coming with that point i was like hearing ding dong church bells...was so, so, so, happy as at least i'll be able to go out a bit and see new things. what i didnt realised is that it happened to be the weekend of valentines day so i have nothing planned as we are supposed to head back to Paris on that friday evening after spending 3 nights in snowy Rotterdam, my hubby suddenly blurted out his plan to bring me to amsterdm for my first valentine day celebration and i was so thrilled an excited about it as i didnt think he would be that romantic....but i guess i under estimated him :) gros bisous pour toi mon coeur :)

Anyhow friday evening we hopped on the domestic train from Rotterdam to Amsterdm and i think it took about 1 and a half hour to reach Amsterdam an finally we got to our Blue Tower Hotel in Bos En Lommerplein about 20 minutes away from the city centre. But although its quite a distant the trnsportation system in mstedam is very good and you can easily go here and there without any much trouble. Since we only have 1 full day to do sightseeing so we tried our best to packed everything in 1 day and some other the next half day.

I was so happy coz during valentines day it was sunny and not cold at all and everything was just nice and romantic including our lunch date at a small malaysian restaurant :) We managed to go to all the museums thats worth going like the Rijksmuseum, The famous Van Gogh Museum and we were fortunate enough to be able to see the grand exhibition of his works entitled "Van Gogh and the colours of the night" for his dedication over his facination with the night and its colours. Very interesting indeed. an cruises and geleries and just wondering about in the city.

It was a glorious vacation cum Valentines day celebration for me and this will always be in my mind and heart as this is my very first Valentine Day spent with my beloved husband so it will be in both our heart and mind forever :)
Je t'aime mon coeur!

Here some of the pictures we managed to snap during our very romantic walks in amsterdam. Hope you guys enjoy the scenery and think of tulips and think of amsterdam :)


The first thing i capture when we reach amsterdam going to our hotel in a a taxi

Our Fantabulous dinner at the Blue Tower Hotel...was really yummylicious indeed :)

The best way to see Amsterdam is by going on the water taxi cruise it was really cozy and full of suprises indeed every left and right is something out of this world!

After 1 hours boat trip its time to walk the streets and china town is just around the corner :)

The Mariage.....19th December 2008 and Happy Valentines 2009

Well i certainly didnt think 2008 is going to be the year i'll be married but somehow, it did happened and it was life changing experience for both of us as we just up and do it. When we re first going out with each other, we were thinking ok lets give sometime for us both to settled into both our lives and we said to ourselves we are not in a hurry to get married coz 'we' thought its going to be simple and easy to get married with less hassle and all....but not too long after we launch the process to get married that we know when the toughies gets kicking and everything seemed to be long and winding and ....i must admit i wish i could just elope! hahahaha but even elopement needs a lot of work so scrap that idea out so we went the long and winding process just like everyone else :)

Particularly......if you are marrying to a foreigner or vice versa....the paperwork is painstackingly huge. And the amount of time spent to wait for a document to fall through is also making me go nuts but in the end i'm so so so glad that Raymond had all his papers ready from putrajaya to the french embassy as swiftly with no delays the most time spent is probably to do translation from french to english , malay to english and to french so there you go imagine all that....but somehow....we managed and things was falling into place just as we predicted until the moment we were in JPN Sabah. This part is the funniest one and we can only laugh about this now after we are now married but back then it was kinda stressful and I remembered being really bogged about it .We went to JPN 2 times one is to apply for the marriage certificate and secondly we went and get married there. The 1st visit went ok and we have all the documents in place and no problems whatsover and we have 21 days for the whole thing to be processed and get married right after that but somehow we were offered an option.....the guy who was attending to us was asking do you want super fast marriage or super super fast marriage....then both of us is like hearing bells in our ears when he mentioned that and of course we wanted the super duper fast one....the only thing is we didnt know that we were supposed to write a letter to the Chief Minister to have his approval then if we have his approval we will be married in 7 days. Phew!! with my bad Bahasa Malaysia and Raymonds something wrong somewhere kinda English we wrote the letter to th CM stating the reasons why we wanted a super fast one and so we did and with just one column of space to write I was going nuts trying to fit in all the things we wanted to write in the end....i told the guy find here it goes! Then after that we were on our toes to get the results from it and they say 7 working days and so we waited....

on the 5th day of our wait which was on a thursday, I got a call from JPN and they told me to get ready to get married the next day as my application for the super duper fast marriage was approved!! I was jumping up and down with joy and cant believe my letter to the CM went through ok..i wish I had a photocopy of that letter coz it was I think a bit terrible in terms of grammar usage and was just not expecting it to be a YES! So what to do I just call raymond up and told him to get his ass ready to fly tomorrow for OUR MARRIAGE! And he was happpy too and was busy packing his stuffs at the office to meet me at KL Sentral to purchase our tickets to fly the next day

Thank goodness I bought a “simply-Dress” beforehand at least its white is all I can say, you know me, when it comes to dressing myself im the worst really so I bought it thinking that ah well probably its going to be staying in the closet BUT I didnt have time to pick a white dress for me for the civil wedding so I just to took the dress and Ray bought me a beautiful last minute buy at the Sentral Station a white heeled shoe that I think looked elegant enough to match wt the dress I had so ,off we went and the next day.....

The next day we reach KK in the morning at 6.30am and Ray reach kk at 10am and the ceremony is at 2.00pm and finally we flying off back to KL the same day ! So there you go a whirlwind marriage again!! hehehhe

Anyways, I'm so glad that its all over now but the process made us more appreciative to things going around in our lives everyday and that nothing is simple and everything you have to work hard to make it happen. I choose Valentines day to make this post as this is a very special moment for me as for years and years growing up I never had a valentine and it was not so important back then but now I have so much to look forward to as now I have my own valentine day gift to have and to hold for life and thats my husband Raymond. No more searching for valentines for me as I have got my Valentines heart close with me for always! Je t'aime , mon coeur, bisous por toi :)

Happy valentines to all of you and have a wonderful day remembering our loved ones near or far they are always close in our heart.

Love always,


P/s..enjoy these pics of us getting married at the ROM in JPN KK

The whirlwind ...

When i said whirlwind i literally meant it....thats how it felt like these past few weeks or months after we tied the knot. Everything seemed to be fleeting pass us and like when we are on a train ride but at the same time its dizzying but most of the time it was like on cloud 9 :) Its a little bit of both really and thats also the reason why it took me this long to write something about whats been happening to me and my new married life.

It all started when we decided to get married in other words when my hubby proposed to me hehehe...suddenly everything seemed to be topsy-turvy. I mean after all this while we've been together we knew that we will get married someday, BUT when the time really comes it really comes thats all i can say hehehe. It was not all jolly good time for the process of getting married it is truly unbelievably dificult!! It took ages for things to fall through but when its done its really done! Between applying for our marriage licence, flying back and forth from KK - KL - KL- KK for the whole month of december was taking its toll on us and top of it all moving and packing stuffs to be shipped out either to France or to KK was really stressful indeed. But i am glad its all over now and now i must say we are both happily in our married life and moving on to the next stage in our life together and this could mean anything to everything :)

And before all this took place we both did something wonderfully great to mark our commitment to be together we hire a wonderful photographer namely Anna-Rina, i saw her work once on my pal Vera and hubby's wedding back in 2007 and decided that shes going to be the one to take our pre-wedding pictures and so she did on the 29th of November, we had a 2 hour session with her and so here is the outcome of it. We took pictures from the place that we reside as we wanted to have it as a remembrance of our union in this place where all of it took place, all the happiness and the union and the processes so we decided sentul-west is going to be our picture taking location and Anna-Rina did the magic after that as we both sure do not know how to pose but she made us really comfortable that day and just being ourselves, relax and enjoying the company :)


you can find anna's work either here or here :) Either one its all her :))

My favourite pic of raymond would be this one

I laugh and love this picture everytime i see it ....its just so Raymond :)

AND....this is also my favourite because this is definately us :)
we love to be in the kitchen chit-chat and laughing and just spending time like that so this is us indeed :)

And for the most romantique shot for me and ray would be this one at the Zen Garden @ Maple! I sooo love it :)

All in all...thank you Anna for the magic on them pictures and for creating such wonderful and memorable memories for us both to mark our wonderful life and union together , thank you so much for everything and we hope to see you soon in July :)

Love and smiles always
