Okaylah these are the picture of our last day in paris and journey to Geneva or they panggil Geneve..actually bukanlah say bybye betul to Paris as after 10 days in geneva nanti we will come back to paris,spend a night before we head back to KL.

Kaezrin, we had our breakfast kat La Terrase:) the croissant there was awesome;)

See how they love it..it is  nice to be eaten on its own.

our TGV train to Geneva from Gare Du Nord will be at 12.45pm,we plan to go there at 11.00am .We have ample time to have breakfast.

i ordered omellete with champignons(mushroom) and cheese..wahhh sedap betul:)

Breakfast ala Parisien;)

Me and him in Paris:)

Ha ha si kenit nak menyelit jugak..langsung tak ada masa romantik2 ni;)

We took a cab to Gare Du Nord driven by an eygptian lady and when she found out the girls name are Khadeja and Aisyah she said "mashallah,mashallah;"

Gare Du Nord train station is very meaningful to us especially the girls as they been watching Mr Beans Holiday since they were 2 yr old.Many scenes in that movie were taken here.

We will board TGV Lyria the fast train from Paris to Geneva and the journey will be 2 and 1/2 hours.

Lucky we dah tinggal dua bag kat rumah Kak Nur:) senanglah nak manage the girls sikit.

The girls trying their hands on the vending machine where Mr beans tie got stuck in the movie.

So we sat and waited, i told the girls no to be far from me as there were many people there and we really need to be careful.

Ni Blue restaurant..kalau siapa tengok Mr Beans Holiday mesti ingat Mr beans makan lobster kat dalam restaurant dengan claws terkeluar keluar dari mulut dia:)

The french lady promoting 'pink apple'

Dua orang ni happy dapat apple gemuk and juicy.

We finally in the train;) I booked a first class seat,saja nak bagi the girls selesa,lagi pun tak rasa naik flight first class,train jadi lah:)..i booked the tickets online from Malaysia,if you rajin berjaga and monitor tengah malam there are time when they about to close the first class booking at night and they will offer good rates for few hours.When they offer this you must grab that opportunity;)I booked through Eurorail and they have office in Singapore, if you train tickets tak keluar kat email etc you boleh call Singapore to check.Cuma booking online ni you cannot choose the seat as it will be allocated automatically to you but they will normally seat the family together.

Mia sat with Mama at the front while Tia sat with papa behind us.

Mia and her magazine.

The TGV magazine.

wonderful view along the way.

For first class they will serve meal/lunch.They have seafood,vegetarian or chicken meal,we ordered seafood.

Madamoseille enjoying her meal on the fast train.

The service is like on the aeroplane where they will serve you hot and cold drink.

dah kenyang tidur;)

Alhamdulillah we finally arrived at our apartment in geneva- there's no picture at train station in geneva because we had a shock there bila bagpack kena snatch depan mata,my husband put his bag pack with the luggage infront of me sebab dia nak pergi toilet,in a split second a man came took the bag and ran, my immediate reaction was ' heyyyyyyy' i shouted so loud that he dropped the bag even he was already few metres away.Alhamdulillah,pertolongan Allah swt, he could just ran away with it but he dropped it and we got the bag back.After that i was so carefull i grab the girls's hands tight..jadi pembuka mata utk lebih berhati-hati.

 The apartment was much bigger than the one in  paris ,more complete and the owner was wonderful:) we didn't see each other but we communicated through sms,email and phone.

It has all the basic needs.

Large balcony and nice view.

Beach theme deco.

The kitchen,the girls were so excited with the automatic bin;)

There's one sofa bed in the living room.

Big apple screen for Mac.

The house has no Tv as in Geneva you need licence to have TV, just like malaysia long time ago. The lady owner bought this cute little tv specially for Tia and Mia.

The cabinet.

Plates and eveything else.

View from the kitchen.

After settling down we went out to have lunch.

We ate kebab at ali baba cafe a halal turkish restaurant.

Then we walked around the town.

After that we went to the geneva lake with the famous jet d eau.The  manmade fountain was so high that it can reach the low flying small plane;) This lake or genevian called it "lac" is just 6-7 mins from our apartment.

There were many egyptians here,they flocked in the expensive Grand kempinski hotel facing the lake.

the environment was wonderful ..everybody walk and relax.

Flowers were blooming too.

The town revolves around the lake.

The design and architecture of the buildings in geneva are different from paris,many white buildings can be found here.

Different type of balcony too.

blooms everywhere.

rajuk merajuk time;)

Gorgeous view.

Remind me of Cote D Azur in Southern France.

Private and public boats for hire.

There's many wild ducks to be fed.

The famous swiss brands.

We in Geneva on the first day:) We ve been to Zurich,Luzerne and Berne in 2007 but geneva has a slightly different landscapes.

The town.

Then the girls found this apa lagi melekat lah.

9.20 at night eating gelato.

We had a wonderful first day;)

Let's go back to the apartment first we have 10 days to spent here;)..until the next entry night2;);)
