La Vallée Village, France

with 2 comments

One thing that tourist should do when they are in Paris, France is to shop! 🙂

So, me and my sister googled up designer outlet in Paris where we could buy designer clothes and accesories as cheap as possible. We stumbled upon this name, La Vallée Villgae, 3 Cours de la Garonne, 77700 Serris, France. There were actually two places that caught our attention. But this one was easier to find, we assumed.


So how to get there? It’s very easy.

What to see in Surabaya?

That was a question that I had been asking to my fellow Indonesian who knew Surabaya better than me. Unfortunately, I did not get diverse answers. Most of them said, plainly, malls. Sigh.

I love shopping, don’t get me wrong. But to go to place where one can only find shopping malls is nightmare, well to me it is. I had choice but to expect nothing from this so-called third biggest city in Indonesia. And I was shocked knowing that The Amazing Race 21 visited Surabaya!!! Wow. However, even in a blink of an eye, I managed to visit some interesting places that you might want to see when you visit Surabaya.

We stayed at Twin Hotel (you can read my review on Trip Advisor). But I saw Majapahit Hotel that was quite vintage for you who looked for this stuffs.

My 1st Kate Spade

leave a comment »

When you are in one of those high-end malls, which store that you always long to enter?

Jakarta, as unpopular as it is, has some malls that have those life threatening atmosphere. Security guards who look at you and observe your conduct. Sales girls whose stare and smile do not synchronize. They smile to welcome you when at the same time they stare to kick you out of store. And of course, fellow shoppers who think you do not belong there.

My 1st Kate Spade

One of the store that I finally conquered was Kate Spade New York at Plaza Senayan, Jakarta. I always fond of NY and I love Kate Spade as much. Unfortunately, my fortune despised me from shopping in their stores. Well, until my friends and I barged in to their store. I was like in paradise. Everything there seemed like… my kind of things, the purse, the wallet, the dress, the accessories and the iphone casing? That was when I realized that I can afford one of Kate Spade’s items even if it was only iphone casing! Like hell! It is still Kate Spade! 😉

I was about to use my plastic to pay it when cleverly we texted our friend who was in HK. It turned out, Kate Spade’s Iphone casing there was cheaper than here. So, I decided to ask her to buy one for me. I left the store empty handed.

But, yeay! I have a Kate Spade! hihihihii…. 😀
