Wheather schmeather

7 Dec

That’s right. It has been snowing in Paris for the past week. Like the ‘wine in Vietnam’ it sucks! Just two weeks ago I was happily lounging in shorts and walking around in flip flops back in the Philippines and what greets me when I arrive back? Winter. Boo!

The only good thing about this kind of weather is that I get to bust out the cashmere plaid and snuggle up to the husband sipping hot tea or coffee or hot chocolate while munching on some good ol’ Cloud 9 straight from the supermarkets of Manila.

Oh and also Christmas shopping of course. Nothing beats going elbow to elbow with other Parisians along Boulevard Lafayette and sharing the sidewalk with chestnut vendors while you have snow falling around you making the entire street mushy.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!



Not record breaking but it should be

I’m talking about the snow and cold of course. What else is there to talk about besides the weather? It’s snowmaggedon in the US and it’s flurry-geddon in Paris. It’s flurrying every 5 minutes (isn’t that sort of redundant?). Although I have a feeling that this winter is a bad one, it’s actually not record breaking. Over here, at least.

I knew it! I had a feeling it was too good to be true. Those nice sunny days we had in January was just a bad form of teasing. It’s not over ’til it’s over people!!

I’m now dreaming about that Marrakesh trip we’re planning for March.

Haaayyy….sana summer na talaga!
