2nd Sat in Monaco - 14 March

Sunday, March 29th, 2009

It was the weekend and I decided to do some touristy stuff in Monaco ….

img_4613.jpg

I made my way to a gardens called Jardin Exotique which was located on .. u guessed it, Jardin Exotique Boulevard.

Here’s a map of the gardens which includes a cave and a museum.

The map of the cave. There was a guide that would lead ppl every hr on the hr. It was a 300 steps climb down and then another 300 back up O_o.

Unfortunately the guide only spoke in French so I do not know what was going on. But the cave looks really fascinating. According to my boss, many many years ago, the first ppl of Monaco used to lived in these caves ….

This was part of the museum display ….

After the gardens, I headed to the Aquarium!

Which is located on the rocks ….

This is the skeleton of a whale ….

This one :P

I headed to a “mall” after the aquarium but it was so pathetic … not many shops at all. So after walking a bit, I headed back to my hotel room …. did a lot of walking that day!

More pics to come ….

I’m back in Sgp ….

Just a short post to let everyone know that I am back in Sgp. I flew in on Tues and was back to work on Wed :( Which explains why I have not been updating.

Rest assured that the the weekend is here and I will be posting more pics from my trip as soon as I get the time and energy to sort through the HUNDREDS of pics that I took …

Stay tuned ….

And just for ripplecloud who was requesting for food pics :P This is the only pic of food that I took during dinner. Its an Italian dessert called Panna cotta. It was really yummy!!

Monaco’s Palace and Nice ….

Sunday, March 8th, 2009

I decided to go to the palace to see the daily guard change @ 11.55am. It was about a 15mins walk to the palace but I reached there only to be greeted by more stairs.

Luckily these were not that steep.

08032009682.jpg

I reached the top!

I did take a video of the guard change using my cell phone (I left the memory card of my actual camera in my laptop so all the pics at the palace were taken using my cell phone) but it was taking too long to upload into my lappy.

08032009687.jpg

So here’s a pic of a guard :P

08032009684.jpg

Real nice architecture with shops hidden within the narrow alleys.

08032009685.jpg

Look what I found all the way in Monaco!!! Hello Kitty :)

08032009683.jpg

This is where Grace Kelly aka Princess Grace is buried, I think.

View of Monaco from the palace.

After visiting the palace, I met up with some colleagues for lunch and after lunch, one of them brought me to Nice.

img_4464.jpg

Here’s Nice, France … about 15mins drive from Monaco.

img_4466.jpg

The boardwalk was crowded as the weather on Sun was real nice.

img_4469.jpg

I love Ferris Wheels, especially the traditional ones.

img_4463.jpg

A small street that is lined with restaurants on both sides.

I was told that Nice used to belong to Italy long long time ago. This accounts for the many Italian style architecture u see in Nice.

There goes my weekend … its work on Mon :(

Just look at all the yachts! I wonder if I will get a chance to go on board one of them :P

This is the right of Monaco. The mountain the background .. that is Italy.

Visited a Japanese Garden.

Quite pretty …

This just made me smile … I could just imagine someone painstakingly doing this.

img_4430.jpg

Street named after Grace Kelly who was also the Princess of Monaco. She died a very tragic death :(

Its the famous hairpin turn of the F1 race in Monaco.

The building at the end is the Monte Carlo Casino.

One more day of fun b4 its work :( Going to enjoy it as much as I can. Will try to post more pics but I have limited internet access in the hotel.

I received word from Grace @ the Bugis outlet that new LTS items had arrived. So last Thurs, I dragged my sis down to check out the new stuff!

Here’s what I got :D

Very excited when I saw this mug … cups/mugs are one of the things I have been collecting consistently.

It even came with a lid. There is a pic of Kiki and Lala on the inside edge, on opposite sides.

Here’s a the cute little ceramic container that can be used to hold candy or sugar cubes ;)

The edge of the mug is dusted pink … pretty!

And now for the fave part of my collection …
