Paris Feels10:45 PMCarla Florendo
Bonjour, mes chéris! Here I am gliding my way through the newly opened Parisian Macau. I've been dreaming about the next time that I visit my favourite city of the world but I can't say that this doesn't satisfy my longing even just a little bit.
The Parisian opened a couple of days ago just before the festivities of the Mid-Autumn festival began. Naturally, Penguin and I went to check it out over the weekend and see what the hype is all about. Of course I was excited to see the Eiffel Tower replica up close once and for all, reminding me so much of the first time that I saw the real one in Paris; and then the shoppes inside the mall, a replication of various iconic shopping districts of Paris such as the Avenue des Champs-Élysées, and the gorgeous Galerie Vivienne.
We spent a good few hours checking out the stores inside the mall, including a new Adidas Originals store, a couple of high fashion brands, and cafes. But of course, mandatory photos first right at the entrance, with the Eiffel Tower replica as the backdrop. I made it a point to wear something more feminine than my usual laid back outfits to match such a dreamy location.
Trust Penguin to capture beautiful stills with me in it just as I imagined. Now I can safely put my thoughts of visiting the real Paris on hold. For now.
