Eiffel Tower, Salon Du Blog Culinaire , Paris Apr 2014 巴黎自由行


Bonjour everyone!! I just returned from a free and easy to Paris and London. This was my second time to Paris after 8 years ago. This time, I brought my family and mother along. At the same time, my Paris blogger friend Nadji @ Saveurs et Gourmandises  (Flavours and Delicacies) took this opportunity to invite me to join a Paris bloggers culinary event (Salon Du Blog Culinaire) which coincidently held on our first day of arrival to Paris.



 
Eiffel Tower, a place must visit when you visit to Paris. First we went there during evening time after sunset.  We saw her in pink (not long after sunset, photo posted in Instagram), then waited until it light up, it was beautiful..






 
Then we went again during a hot sunny day to have difference view of Eiffel tower. She has difference beauty in difference time of viewing. After exit from Metro station, we tried walk to Palais de Chaillot Trocadero which believe from here you can have best view of Eiffel tower.


 
 


 
Look at the sky, so blue ...


I took this photo at the middle of road when we crossing the road, it was quite dangerous !!






My husband and I sat down here while waiting for our kids and mother as they went up to the top of Eiffel tower (we have went to the top in earlier trip). They have to waited very long to went up to the top, about 2-3hrs waiting time, too many tourists in Paris nowadays!! We were waited till sunset but we have to run to a covered bus stop to wait as the weather was chilled and very cold. Also partly due to the disturbance of peoples who keep approaching us asking to buy liquor and cigarette or asking money for signing survey. Personally i prefer to look Eiffle tower from far, but not near to her !!

Salon Du Blog Culinaire (Paris bloggers culinary event)
- This was my first time attended a blog event in oversea. Thanks to Nadji for extend the invitation to me, so we (my family also got invited ) could tasted out many French delicacies, a lot of foods are new to us!!


 
We can tasted out everything in this event included this large and juicy fresh strawberries.

 
Kenwood mixer demo

 
wine tasting

 
macarons

 
salad mixing

 
we were impressed with this white asparagus salad, the asparagus was crunchy when it is raw.




 
Not sure what insect was this, but my first time tasted insects, LOL !

 
There was a session where all bloggers bring their own foods to share, these were some of the foods that they brought. I also brought Malaysia's local delicacies, kuih bahulu and curry puff. But I totally forgot to take a picture of it. We also has no time to taste out all these yummy foods prepared by Paris bloggers as we have to continue to explore Paris.


 
Nice meeting to my Paris blogger friend Nadji (second from left and she was so happy to receive a wooden mooncake mould from me  ) and few other new blogger friends..( now I would say Food blogging has no boundary !!)

Sonia mon amie, heureuse que tu aies aimé Paris et cette journée du blog culinaire où les rencontres sont multiples.
je regrette qu'on n'ait pas eu le temps de se voir plus longuement.
La blogosphère culinaire n'a pas de frontières et je suis sûre qu'on se reverra.
