STREET FOOD TEMPLE 2015 (English)

Salut tous les mondes!
It is currently 1:15am but I just really feel like writing a post right now so here we go.
This weekend has kicked off to a great start so far as I finally experienced "French time" for the first time; when I say "French time," I mean how time seems to move slower in France. I'm so used to the hustle and bustle of L.A. and Tokyo that it was nice to just sit back and let time go on on its own. I'm going to break this post apart into two parts because it just makes sense, naturally, as you will see.
 
First off, a couple of my friends and I headed to STREET FOOD TEMPLE, which was taking place at Carreau de Temple near the station Republique. This place hosts many events and this time around it was a foodtruck festival. I believe the theme was Korean food because there was and entire street dedicated to Korean cuisine amongst various other food trucks which included American, Mexican, Thai, etc.
 
 
As I mentioned before, "Korea" was the theme so naturally, I got in line for the Korean food. It was a HUGE line that barely budged over the course of however long I was waiting but the taste of Asian food made up for it. I haven't had "regular" (my standards, I mean) steamed rice in such a long time, that that alone was enough for me make me happy.
 
Spicy Chicken "Bento" : 12 euros
 



Carreau de Temple took the food inside this building as well.
 



Bars, Music, Free Samples, and More Food, including Desserts
 

This Delicatessen Food Truck struck home because they served brownies, blondies, and cookie brownies. Umm, yes please!


Cookie Brownie: 3.5 euros
 

It's moments like these when you just thank your past-self for deciding to save as money as possible so that I don't feel guilty for splurging a bit on some yummy food.



 
There was a picnic that was planned for the Paris 1 ISAP students, or the International Student Association of Paris, in the evening that we planned to go to so we stopped by a local supermarket called MONOPRIX to buy some food and drinks. It was much larger than the one located near my dorm with a far larger stock and variety of everything - I was amazed and excited at the same time.
 
Nothing beats the wine section in France.
 

I have never seen a purple cauliflower before. Is there even a difference from the original one besides the color?
 

My friend is really serious about her bread.
Understandable because it was ridiculously cheap.
 
 
To continue and Talk soon!

P.S. I've been going back and forth between separating posts in English and Japanese to keeping them in the same post. Which do you all prefer?

アップするの忘れてたちょっと前の

今日は用事でOpéraの方に行ってきました。いつもならちょっと早く出て、散歩しながら行こうかなとも思うのですが、今日はたまたま大雨。傘の上手な使い方をいまいち理解していないというか下手なわたしは、正直さしていてあまり意味がなかった様な気がします。笑 さすがに歩くのはちょっと大変だなと思ったので、今回はメトロⓂ️を使うことにしました。 帰りにも少しだけ入ったGalerie Lafayetteを一周してきました。高級ブランドがたくさんあり、さすがに買い物はできませんでしたが、見ているだけでも楽しい空間でした。靴のコーナーを撮り忘れてしまったことがちょっと悔しいです。ちょっと変わった形や色のものからクラシックな形のものまでたくさんあって、モール全体をわたしのウォークインクローゼットにしたいくらいでした。



前回入れなかったユニクロ。 ちょ〜オシャレでした。 お店のレイアウト、ディスプレー全てがなんだか高級感たっぷりでした。 値段も日本より少し高め?のような気もしました。


じゃまた。

Exploring Paris Solo

One of the reasons why I really love Paris is that it's a great place to be for soloist like me. I prefer wandering alone at my own pace, although having company is great as well. Either way, exploring a city alone has really allowed me to get in touch with myself and make my own discoveries and meet new people. It was just one of those days when my insides were nudging me to get out and that is exactly what I did.
パリが好きな大きな理由の1つが1人でも街を楽しむことができることです。他の人と探検するのもいいですが、1人だからこそ自分のペースでじっくり楽しめたり、美術家で面白いおじいちゃんと話が盛り上がったりすなど新しい出会いがあるんだな、とこの街にに来て改めて思うようになりました。
I've always wanted to brunch at Angelina and thought, why not just go? I took a trip down to Rue Rivoli and ordered the brunch best. Aaaaa the famous chocolat chaud was just as smooth and decadent as I had heard it was. It was like drinking a melted chocolate bar. (*all of my photos showed up yellow, I don't know why but please overlook it)
そんなわたしですが、ある日とりあえず外に出たいと思い、ほとんどノープランの1日を過ごしました。ずっと前からAngelinaでブランチをしたいなと思っていたので、まずはそこに行くことにし…

The Post I Forgot to Upload Last Week

I was near Opera today for a commitment and while I would usually leave a little early so that I could walk to my destination, I decided otherwise when I saw that it was pouring rain. I took the Metro for the first time in a while. I obviously brought an umbrella with me but I always question whether I need it or not since I somehow get wet anyways. I stopped by Galerie Lafayette to look around. All the high end products are not too friendly for my budget but the mall is like one big art exhibit that you can enjoy just strolling around in.







Stepped into the UNIQLO that I was too sccared to walk into last time and was in awe at how chic everything looked. There was a totally different atmosphere to the ones I am used to in Japan. I think the prices were also a tad bit higher.






Talk soon!
