Paris Day 8

Last day in Paris.  Airport transfer scheduled around 4pm so we only had half day. 

Packed our bags for checkout. 

Last breakfast 
Not too bad - we managed to clear up all our food items. Milk, eggs, oranges, ham, vege, bread. 

Erin wanted a photo with her soft toys 

Some final house photos - 

View from Kitchen

I like this corner!

View from Dining Table 
First time we opened the patio door actually cos it was cold! 

Girls at the balcony 

From the back - Monet Garden.
How I love our little yellow house!

We saved some bread pieces to feed the ducks 

More feeding at the main lake 

After checkout, we made a quick visit to the Kids Room
Chatted to the friendly Spanish coordinator while the girls were engrossed in their Lego.  

Took a shuttle bus to La Vallee Outlet Village Mall.  Not too sure what to expect.  Maybe we'll be done in less than an hour. Got our 10% voucher from the reception area and off we went.

La Vallee 
Not particularly crowded that day 

Gucci Outlet
It was practically the only store that had a queue. When we arrived, there were about 10 people ahead of us so we thought why not. Queue got a lot longer while we waited. 

The "can we go now?" look  ;-) 
Cos we ended up spending more than an hour in the store! 

Got my first Gucci !!
I've always said I don't need branded bags....... but just couldn't resist. Outlet prices already lower than retail, we had additional 10% coupons (2 coupons given per passport) and then there's VAT refund. 

We had to stop shopping cos the girls were begging to go back.  Elyssa kept saying "Mummy.... why do you need so many bags??????" and kept trying to close my eyes so I can't shop anymore. Hahahaha. She says we all need ONE bag, ONE pair of shoes etc... I do hope she is this adverse to shopping for herself when she enters her teens!!

Final stop before we left La Vallee.  After one week, I finally had my first macaroon in Paris..

@ Laduree
I know can easily get back home but I just wanted to have it in Paris  :-)
We ordered 6 macaroons (Euro 2.10 each) and 1 chocolate eclair (Euro 5!!) and used our 10% coupon. Macaroons were soooo good!  Eclair was disappointing. 

Took shuttle bus back to hotel.  Had to repack our luggage -  to fit in our new shopping stuff (heh!) and also to keep all the bulky winter outerwear.   Luckily girls were kept entertained in the Kids Club so we could repack and get ready for our long flight home in peace.

They didn't want to leave the Kids Club!  

Had a short snack of hot potato soup (so yummy!) from hotel marketplace and off we headed to the airport. Looooong journey home again.  7+ hours from Paris to Dubai, transit for 3+ hours in Dubai and then another 7+ hours from Dubai to KL.  Reached home super stoned past midnight.

Carry Pals for kids from Emirates Airline.  So cute! 

As I'm writing this, it's already more than one month since we returned ( so efficient these days! haha). I still missssss Paris!  Am extremely grateful we got to enjoy the awesome holiday.

-End of Paris Holiday-
