monday nov 10th (preparation)
TG ga harus kerja today, jd bisa relaxing n siap2 buat besoknya, so i went to albert heijn bought some snacks. TK dateng around 8pm. Had dinner together with left-overs from long pura :p he tried to sleep, n i tried to be really quiet, but then around 10.30 the girls (prima n penny) came back from work. after 3 hours of laughters, fussing around with packing, picking dresses, we all went to bed. me n prima slept at etta's place while penny n tk used our beds.
tuesday nov 11th
3 hours of deep sleep n i was awaken by tk's phone call. lookd at the time n was surprised it's already 5 minutes to 5am -.- planned to wake up at 4 to take a shower n final check ups.. but yea.. abandoned shower plans, siap2.. 30 minutes later the 4 of us snuggled comfortably in tk's vw ludo.
the trip was around 5 hours, so we arrived at the hotel around 10.30. dropped the luggage, and then we're off to eurodisney!
we started from frontierland, tadinya mo naek big thunder mountain, tp lg renovasi.. so we went on to adventureland, the "Indiana jones and the temple of perils"-ride (or Indiana Jones et le Temple du Péril).. lumayan for opening act :p
habis dr situ anak2 pd laper, jd makan d "hakuna matata". i got myself le menu enfant for 6 euros n got hot dog, fries, aqua, n yoghurt drink. the others ate normal menu for 10 euros.. but with almost the same amount of food xD so guys next time when visiting eurodisney paris just get urself the children's menu :p (didnt get the surprise toy as promised by the poster though.. =[)
then tk wantd to check out the adventure isle. after running around we continued to the pirates of the Caribbean ride. TK kept saying, "ulma ure gonna love this". yg udh pernah k sini cuma tk n penny. i forgot when was the last time tk went to eurodisney but for penny it's almost 10 years ago. emm so the PotC-ride was a boat cruise basically, with puppets and scenery of pirates attacking a fortress on the side.. the only exciting thing was when this pirate doll swung from one side to another and surprised tk as it passed his head (he shouted, "uiiii.." the whole trip we're making fun of tk n his over the top reactions :p). conclusion: u can pass this ride :p
after that we went to the souvenir shop nearby coz i saw some nightmare bfore christmas stuff on the etalage (display window).. n bought a jack-beanie-key chain yg lg sale for 3 euros (yea im broke -.-).
next stop was fantasyland, penny bought this cute minnie mouse ears, i saw curious labyrinth with characters from alice but nobody else wntd to go inside so was kinda sad :'(
tk:"ulma we dont hv that much time, it took 2 hours to find the exit"
reallllyyy....? it doesnt look that complicated =/
but anyway, me penny n prima went to the mad hatter's tea party ride. me n penny's been practicing this for weeks using a round table at long pura xD
next one was... SPACE MOUNTAIN: MISSION 2!! :D ngantrinya was around 35 minutes.. was so curious coz i can hear ppl screaming inside, n tk's promotion of course. n as we got closer to the ride i had this adrenaline-rush.. excited, curious, anxious,.. all that.. me n penny started to jump around impatiently.. during the trip me n penny were like the children, being excited, did not really care where we're going.. while prima n tk were like.. two dads xD well especially in paris, both kept arguing on the map, which line to take, which direction, bla bla bla.. while me n penny just dancing skipping around in the background ^3^
so yea space mountain WAS AWESOME!! :D inside i was screaming all the time, both because of scared and excited ^3^ wooohooo! and here is where prima lost her voice xD
abis space mountain we went to star tours.. not really exciting.. well funny though. flight simulation thingy inside a passenger-shuttle in a star wars movie. dgn pilot robot yg bego haha..
n after that we went to the honey i shrunk the audience thingy. with 3d thingy. and prima penny tk shouted during the snake scene.. n when szalinski broke the neon lights..guys please.. -.-
next stop was the shops at main street USA, where we bought key chains for ppl at LP, and prima also bought some stuffs for her bro. pgn beli2 jg tp tak ada uang T_T (saving money for food n cocktail). we had dinner @Planet Hollywood in Disney Village. I had this hearty american burger and a non-alcoholic cocktail, the rest had steaks n smoothies, hot chocolate for tk.
tk looks very tired xD
back to the hotel, checked in properly (hand-over room key, uh,.. magnetic card..), changed to bathing suit n jumpd into the jacuzzi :D the receptionist told us how to work with the equipments, the heating system, so that we could adjust the temperature or work it out on ourselves whenever there's a problem.. ~.^ so we had the whole fitness area for ourselves.. yay.. (not).. we couldnt heat the sauna so after 45 minutes in the jacuzzi we just gave up n went back to the receptionist guy. when he fixed the whole thing penny n tk were already tired so they went back to the room. me n prima used the sauna for 20 minutes.. n then we're done.. sweaty and feeling really light ^^ and set to conquer paris night life!!! :D
before we left for paris i did a research :p on nice cocktail lounges, gathered them in a list n askd penny n tk to pick one (being the most chic n classy of us all :D). so they chose the bound bar. which was a good choice. it's located in george V so its in the centre. on the way there we got a nice view on the lights and grandeur of paris city scenery at night.. soooo prettyyyy... the last time i went to paris wasnt at night time so it was definitely something new for me. even penny fell under its spell :p tadinya dia yg udh males gt mo keluar :D bound bar looks very chic, and the next best thing was that it was free parking in that area from 7 pm.. yay :D musiknya jg enak. surprisingly they played indie rock stuff like modest mouse, gorillaz, padahal di depannya kesannya yg buddha-bar gt..
all 4 of us ordered long drink premium cocktails, penny had vanilla sky (with vanilla skyy vodka n rum i think) prima n tk had punch bound (with rum n amaretto), n i had last kiss (rum n peach liquor). was quite a lot xD 20cl.. but for 16 eur.. yeah.. we finished our drinks at 12.30 am, went to take pics at the blue-lit eiffel tower, n then went home.
penny woke me up two times at night coz apparently i've been invading her sleeping space (yes i kicked her and i think slap her in the face or something xD).. while tk n prima snored in unison.. lol.. this is the day where we went to paris-centre. penny craved for "special" ugg shoes.. but UNFORTUNATELY there were NO ugg stores, or stores that sell ugg boots in paris xD she saw many rip-offs but no real ugg's.. xD lol.. poor penny.
so what we did this day was.. lunching at Mc Donald's "hamburger restaurant" (even KFC was a restaurant there) me prima n tk had Le M, and .. uh wait.. i just went to the ugg website.. n there WERE ugg shoes retailer xD penny's gonna cry when she found out about this xD poor girl.. oh yea.. lunch, penny was having chicken wings n a very sweet chocolate mousse. later on she bought oreo swirl (which we dont hv anymore in holland -.-) with caramel sauce.. yumm.. btw toilets in paris are horrible -.- ppl here are so chic but soooo dirty..
uh yea, after mcdonald's we went to sephora (no we dont hv that either in holland, not fair!), n to the marvelous galeries la fayette.. full with beautiful things n so expensive xD we went to the louis vuitton store coz tk was looking for a wallet (wallets there cost 200 euro n above -.-) n guess what.. 80% ppl in there were chinese :p me n penny were outside the store looking inside through the glass window.. we felt like being in a museum n looking at population specimen or something titled "Chinese shopping at LV, Paris". Then prima told us this story about the time she went to champ elysees n some chinese person wanted to pay her to get into LV store n bought several things since the person already bought a lot of stuff and was not allowed to get in.. umm yea of course french high-end brands are cheaper here. (seperti yg dijelaskan oleh mbak2 LV who mentiond a couple of brands such as 'christian dior', she pronounced it in a french way we didnt get it after a couple of secs that it was 'christian dior' she was talking about) so those chinese bought a lot of stuff to sell it again outside.
n then we went to starbucks, where tk treated us for some coffee.. more walking2.. tk found a cheap two-suit for 80 euros, penny still didnt get her boots, but bought a pair of pastry shoes. candylicious sport shoes from mtv's angela and vanessa (NOOO CLUE WHO THEY ARE! *google* ohh.. anak2nya rev. simmons aka run dmc -.- ). me n prima tired from window shopping.. 5.30 we set to find a nice place to hv dinner. more walking2, then we found this place called 'le amazonia' yg maksudnya mo gaya amazon2 gt tapi musiknya ga matching -.-.. makananny jg standard european.. enak sih. tk had salmon salad as starter n a red tuna steak, prima had goat cheese salad, n also the steak. i ate eglefin (white fish), with rice, penny risotto with king prawns. stayed there till 7.30 aannddd.. we're off back to holland..
sampe belanda lagi jam 1 malem... annndd that concludes our trip!! :D
gile capek.. i think i workd on this post for two hours or something -.- for those of you who really2 read it from the start till the end.. i congratulate thee.. dont u hv anything better to do? :p
thank you penny for making this happen :D the whole trip was her idea n she covered my accommodation expenses ^^.. thanks tk for driving us.. thanks prima for the jokes and laughters, thank God of course for everything n for the nice weather.. despite gloomy weather forecast, tuesday we had sunshine the whole day, and as the car drove out from the parking lot, it started to rain HARD, but stopped again at night just in time for our soiree ^^
