Evolution! At the...

...weird, wonderful and the magnificent Museum National d'histoire Naturelle in the Jardin des Plantes! I've written a little more in the Blog before this one. But because I had taken tonnes of pics so why not share them around – of how beautiful the building, all the old wooden displays are etc. For sure you'd feel like you've stepped into a film set!
Check this out though! When you first walk in, only one human "plastic" replica welcomes us, to what is behind him... that is what is below the food chain, thus below us human. We have the power and the intelligence or do we?

A little visit to the Jardin du Luxembourg

Summer is nigh...
Just a few days ago we had a surprise sunny day in Paris, so I hurried myself along with my book for a little lay down under the sun. Could have been my last sun filled day for the next trillion months but I think I took enough in to lasts a month or so.
It's just so encouraging and lovely how these individual green public chairs are dotted in line everywhere for all to seat — though in the past I've witnessed 2 strangers argue(VERY heated) over one at the hype of Summer!! How possessive/precious something can become when there's lack of even when it's not for one's tummy.

This was all in the Jardin du Luxembourg – my favorite garden of all the gardens in Paris the 2nd largest public park in Paris(22.5hect). I have a feeling that the Le Bois de Boulogne is the largest? Anyhow, that's an entirely different kind of Park with a "different" kind of entertainment if you know what I mean.

Have to go! Making Rhubarb jammmm and boiling up some vege stock in the background.

les vacances...

My bi/tri annual pilgrim to wherever my family may be is where most of my holidays are usually spent! This time in Singapore... besides the flora and fauna which I always look forward to, a little surprise awaits me too – a little new nephew with forever curious eyes!!!  Only cries when he has hunger for mama's milk or beddy bye byes hehe. Ain't he the cutest.
