It was really a very short notice, 24 hours before. We found that we will be in Paris the same time and decided to catch up for tea. Monkey was on her vacation and just landed from Malaysia not too long ago while the famed and notable celebrity fashion designer the Si Fu of them all, Eric was in Paris for his show, awards and exhibition.
Yea it was soooo difficult to catch up in KL but it only took a few text messages to set a meeting time and place 10,500km away in the city of Love.
and so like the rest of the foodie, we queued up for a table at the exceptional and the place to be for tea - Angelina Cafe. This was also the tearoom where Madame Coco Chanel had her yummy drinks and cakes.
That very same morning, when we walked past, for the first time when it comes to pastries and cakes department, JS stopped, reversed and went back to the display window to check out the strawberry cakes. Monkey was like "Yeah wat?"
JS: "Look at those cakes!!!! all the strawberries are in perfect uniform size."
Monkey: "Yes they are very beautiful."
the beauty about staying around Opera area is, everything is just within walking distance away.....from sights, to great eats, to cafes, to shopping *Vendome and St. Honore* and all the great departmental stores are just within reach. But it's also very dangerous and damaging to pockets. Oh well, when u are on holiday, push all these behind.
Founded in 1903, Angelina Cafe celebrated 110th anniversary last year. Famed for their hot chocolate drinks and iconic mont blanc with towering high whipped chestnuts paste.
He insisted that he's not a chocolate person but he wanted to try the hot chocolate drinks. Yes that's the way to be, be adventurous and everything is experimental that will truly become an experience to remember. Whether u like it or not, u can decide later. That is life :)))
and so he had his hot chocolate. Creamie velvety and rich with an intense chocolatie yummyness. It's composed of 3 selected cocoa from Cote d'Ivoire, Niger and Ghana. Eric conquered that it's really good.
So we ordered a few to share and no Mont Blanc. It ran out!!! Nevermind there will be next time.
Eric: "Can we finish all of these?"
I know that looks like a lot but we finished everything. Hohohohohohoho coz it's so yummy!!!
She looked disappointed. Guess she found out that they ran out of Mont Blanc too!!!! hahahahaha
The grand epoque mirror next to us was really useful. Apart from checking my makeup, and Eric checkin his reflections, we used it for Wefie!!!
After filling our tummy, it's time to take a long stroll. Afterall it was a beautiful afternoon :))))
Eric: "Hey Monkey, stop posing around!!!"
I don't care, I'm in Paris and nobody knows me. Hahahahaha.
Was it a plane? Was it a bird????
Nope we were just admiring the Notre Dame
Thank you to Mr. JS for all the beautiful pics. He should consider photography seriously, as in a professional way. Just like cooking, many friends encouraged him to startup a F&B business to which he replied, it's much more fun cooking for friends instead.
So I guess same goes for his photography works. For pleasure and for friends :))))))
and my dearie Eric, thank you for spending time with us. It was a beautiful day, not to mention shopping for vintage stuffs...kekekekeke....
