Thinking about the discussion with my maĆ®tre de stage that we’ll be having tomorrow so I can present my work so far, and decide on what needs to be done next.
I really should get some sleep.

Optimistic, hopeful

This last weekend, I went to Paris. Here’s some photographic evidence:

I do not usually travel very much. In fact, in the four years I’ve been in France, I’ve mostly stayed in Nice and haven’t been to many places. Apart from Paris which I’ve visited twice before (not counting the first time I arrived at CDG airport in May 2010) I’ve been to Toulon, Toulouse, Monaco, Ventimiglia, San Remo and Amsterdam. Oh, and I was in the Frankfurt airport once for a whole hour. 
My friends however, have been travelling all over Europe, and so this year, I’ve decided that I’m going to catch up on the travelling that I haven’t been doing. For starters, I went to Paris to spend time with Tan Jun Yen and Elvin Lian Jia Ming

Looking at the little edible gift I bought myself from the store downstairs. Cleaning up the house.

This weekends’s been really exciting. First of all, yesterday the juniors organized a Hari Raya open house at an apartment in Vieux Nice that they rented for 4 days. It was really well done, and the turnout was quite good, with students from Aix and Toulon and even one guy from Russia.

Anyway, yesterday was great fun, and the food was awesome; there was the standard Raya fair of rendang and ketupat, which actually, has come to become rather expected. What really was a pleasant surprise was the effort they’d taken to produce enough kuih raya for everyone. A lot of them chipped in, and brought tasty home-made raya treats with them:
