Paris Apartment

My service apartment in Paris is in their CBD area and is quite a cosy little place.
This is my living room.

My kitchen is quite self sufficient complete with fridge, dish-washer, stove, kettle, coffee maker and all sorts of crockery and cutlery.
It will be nice to cook when Shutterbug is here!

The bathroom with a tub as well.

My bedroom.
Since I am staying alone they gave me a double bed.

The view outside my bedroom. Its always clear weather everyday.

Guess the bad thing about staying alone is about the safety issue cos I have a break in just 2 days ago when I was alone in the room. The guy tried to knock on my door but when I ignored him guess he thought that there was no one in the room. About 10 mins later, I heard my windows being opened when I already lock it! When I went to check, he tried to come in but upon seeing me he actually mumbled something before going away.
Well, thank God that nothing happened. My parents and Shutterbug are pretty worried and came up with all sorts of measures to ensure that such thing will not happen again.
Nevertheless, this episode has taught me to be more vigilant and more prepared in case anything else occur again.
I miss home!

Yupz, a place a chair against the windows and my bed against the bedroom window and then a glass just above the door handle to alert me just in case somebody tries to break in when I am sleeping.
Just gotten myself a room mate with a girl who happens to be touring Paris.
Really good timing!

I know wat u mean coz i m now alone in the States as well. just last week while i was alone at home, there was this persistent knocking.. i looked into peephole and saw this guy outside..i refused to open the door coz it was 9+pm and my door has got no latch .. i was more worried about him pushing the door open if i open the i shouted back.. "Wat do u want?". He refused to answer but just keep knocking! then asked me not to be alarmed coz he just wanted to know his neighbours! I was like DUH?? at 9pm going to 10pm? He went away later but my heart was still pounding coz i m quite alarmed actually ... scared! Now i make sure i am more aware of my surroundings and i try to be home before the sun sets... and when there's more activities at the common areas....

When in a foreign land ... must always learn to keep safe!

Have fun in Paris!
