An abandoned railway station today

White hipsters hurdle inside with their metal trays of organic-everything brunch sets while Arab/south Asian men crowd right outside the entrance peddling Chanel fragrances and smartphones of dubious origins. Feels like China to me.

Outtakes

Of the thousands of photos in my SD card, I couldn’t find a single decent profile photo.

First proper winter in Paris (last year doesn’t count)

Ran some errands this evening and then it started drizzling. Realized sunless winter walks at six degrees celsius aren’t actually all that bad as long as you have the right clothes on.

Treasure hunt at the Louvre

Joined Lilian on the THATLou thanksgiving hunt last Saturday and speed-walked around the Louvre (not about to be stopped by security and be banned from future visits) looking for treasures. Never mind that it was at 10.30am and I’m not much of a morning person, it’s a pretty fun way to discover parts of the Louvre where tourists seldom head to (more Frans Snyders, yes please).

Shorter days

Staying in seems to be a more appealing option of late and I blame it on the shorter days. Today, I woke up craving hawker fare after dreaming that I was about to order a bowl of sliced fish vermicelli soup at the hawker centre.
