Paris, December 2012

Assalamu'alaikum!
Well, after getting married, this girl suddenly had her childhood dreams come true: go around the world.
She flew a thousand miles to Europe, in winter cold weather!
Rejeki nikah yaaa? :D

Paris is a very beautiful city. Landmarks were built in a symmetrical view, and buildings are organized and pretty to see.


Coat by sewamantel.com (yeah I tried to save my penny ;D before the trip)

Nandhi was the star of the tour!

Candid? In Sacre Coeur Basilica


Cheers!

Due to very cold weather (based on research before the trip), I knew I should invest on a good coat (sweater is not enoughhh). And a good coat is expensive! So my tips is:
  • Borrow a coat from family/friend, or like me, I use sewamantel.com coat-rental
  • If you really need to buy a coat or down-filled jacket (jaket isi bulu angsa), buy at Toko Djohan Mangga Dua or Farina Mangga Dua (price is around Rp 500.000 - 700.000 for a VERY GOOD quality of jacket, Zara / Promod / S.Oliver etc from factory), or maybe try hunting at flea market?
There were also some winter jacket (Chinese made) in some Factory Outlet Bandung, but when I surveyed, I wasn't sure about the quality...

My tips is also to bring a good quality of winter gloves. Mine was cheap-wool-look-alike, and I still feel too cold, brrrr...
