Getting back into reading


I missed the boat when I was in France, surrounded by trainloads of book-reading commuters. Hopefully it’s not too late now, even with phone-toting, TV series-watching zombies everywhere.

One afternoon in Bouzigues




We don’t have a car and did our fair share of car rentals pre-bébé. As a result, there was a good amount of tears on the way to and fro Bouzigues as someone didn’t want to be strapped into a car seat.

Margiela, les années Hermès



No crazy crowds like at Dior the last round so it was a walk in the park discovering Margiela’s thoughtfully-designed pieces with a toddler and a stroller. Regret not making it to the other Margiela exhibitionTill 2 Sep 2018 at the recently-rebranded Musée des Arts Décoratifs.

Wish I had time to see everything.

Voir du Pays (2016)


So I’ve realized that I tend to watch French films when I’m on a plane leaving Paris. This one is a war film that deals with the consequences of war set against a backdrop of French soldiers undergoing a decompression program in Cyprus. Even the title (“See the world”) makes an ironic reference to what people say when they join the army. It isn’t for everyone though as it explores topics most people would rather not talk about: PTSD, French soldiers in Afghanistan, women in combat and everyday sexism. Nothing that is easy to digest nor does it make you feel good after watching but I’m glad I’d watched it.
