Paris Rendezvous.

In just a few hours, I will be with C in his home city/country. It’ll be my first time to meet his family and can I just say that I am a ball of shaky nerves right about now? In large part due to the fact that C and I haven’t seen each other for over a month and I’m traveling alone to a foreign country, a continent I’ve never set foot before. And of course, there’s the usual – and perfectly normal, might I add – mixed feelings of excitement and anxiety of meeting my fiance’s family. But they’re nice and sweet I’m pretty sure I’m gonna love them on sight – especially the kids! Speaking of anxiety, I am actually more worried about the weather. C told me it’s still pretty cold in Paris even though it’s spring and sunny during the day. This morning, he said, temperature was 8 degrees. If you know me, then you would know how absurdly low my tolerance is for cold temperatures. And being a tropical baby through and through, I am in perpetual summer mode – hence, my somewhat interesting fashion picks. If I could wear a bikini to work, I don’t think it’ll take much prodding for me to turn up one day in an animal print beach ensemble. I’ll make sure to wear bumblebee shades so no one would recognize me. hahaha.

Anyway, I’m about to board my next flight in a few minutes and really, there’s no better airport one could get stuck in than Changi. I just love, love, love this airport! Everything around here is shiny, pretty, clean, and there’s free wifi everywhere! Just now I wanted to test it by Instagramming while brushing my teeth in the loo but it being inappropriate, never mind that it can still be somewhat funny, I decided against pressing the ‘done’ button. I still am a lady, after all. *wink*

Soon, it’s Paris with my one great love. Can life be any more magical than this? Thank you Lord for the gift of love and commitment.

Travelbug fashion.

Livin' la vida loca.:)

    How exciting and lovely, Vicky! 🙂 Can’t wait to read about your Paris adventure!

      Thank you Tara! We’re going to the countryside for a few days first before we go on a wild Paris adventure. But that won’t be until after several more hours. Our flight to Paris has been delayed. Plane had some technical issues they’re resolving as we speak. Yikes.

    What was that movie with Ben Stiller? Meet the Parents? I’m sure it will be nothing like that. Have fun with it! Chris Kelley – Framingham

      hahaha. Saw that movie and I’m pretty certain it won’t be like that. I am in fact looking forward to meeting all of them.:) How’s the running and family thing coming along, Chris? I applied for NYC marathon lottery. Let’s see if I will get lucky. Haha.
