L’Empereur de Paris (2018)


Can Vincent Cassel do any wrong ? I have to admit that it doesn’t help that an uncle in Les Landes had named his dog “Vidocq”. Expect all the pomp and action that come with a big budget, I’m not good with 19th century Paris so it did take me a while to identify the Louvre in the final scene using the Arc de Triomphe as a reference.

Hope I did justice to my motherland. I’ve put my heart and soul into this one. Link here.

Plan Cœur (2018)


This might very well be the first French TV series I’ve ever watched. Nothing too memorable, quite like Ugly Betty à la française. Pleased that the slangs and colloquial French didn’t pose too much of a problem. What’s more memorable is that they filmed at a lot of locations in the 19th arrondissement ! I saw Club Azteca, Parc des Buttes-Chaumont, Fromagerie Ferme de Chloé, Huguet Primeurs, , Avenue de Laumière… and Les Chics Types. We even sat at the same table once after a stroll in the park ! It’s really nice to see my hood when I’m so many miles away.

Maha Aungmye Bonzan Monastery

Myanmar in November, our first time backpacking with the little one and her first backpacking trip at two years old. Not a bad way to commemorate her birthday from now on if we can afford it.

We would absolutely travel 2361 miles for this duck broth

Yes I am on an offal roll. Definitely not for everyone but duck vermicelli soup has got to be one of my favorite things to eat in the world. Learn more about it here.
