It’s been almost 2 months since my last post! I sort of gave up writing, not because I have nothing to write but I am not too motivated to set myself down and focus on writing. But then again, I think I shouldn’t take things for granted. Knowing that some of my friends back home (yeah! you’re one of them) are waiting to read about my life here, I have decided to continue writing. So you’ll get a few more updates about what happened since my last post.
Here’s to the most recent one: SNOW in Paris!!!!
Well, according to Nasa, I’m a snow virgin =) I guess you figured that it means it’s my first time seeing, feeling and playing with snow. I was pretty excited to see it snowing in Paris, even though I didn’t really show how I really feel. Otherwise, my friends would have need to send me to a French Tanjung Rambutan. Haha… But come to think of it, snow is basically rain turning into ice while falling from the sky =P
We were quite fortunate to have 3 or 4 days of snow because it doesn’t snow much in Paris. So even for the french, it’s still something amazing every year. But the not-so-amazing part, is the inconvenience in the transportation system and the condition of the road for drivers out there. However, the cold was more bearable, even the day felt more cheerful and pleasant. There’s always something about snow that helps one to be more optimistic and joyful.
