We woke up early and headed down to the Bastille Marché. We had trouble finding the marché as it was hidden away somewhere and weirdly the shop owners around the area had no idea where it was either. Lucky for us, we met a few locals on the street who kindly pointed us in the right direction and we finally reached our destination! Bastille Marché was bustling with people and it offered a great variety of local cheeses, free range meats, vegetables, fruits and so forth. Here are some snippets I took of the place.

Today was a food day whereby hl and I travelled around Paris to try their speciality shops! We were also craving for Asian food so we decided to head down to the Chinatown in Paris to have dinner there.
|All hyped up to try the delicious parisian food|
First up, we headed to la maison du chocolat (recommended by trip advisor) where we tasted yummy and delicious chocolates. We ordered 6 chocolates, a chocolate cake and a tub of caramel ice cream. I can't remember how much we paid but I would say it wasn't cheap. haha. The chocolate cake was a a bit of a let down but the caramel ice cream was fantastic!
After satisfying our chocolate cravings, it was time to indulge in macarons from Pierre Hermé ^^ The macarons were super yummy! Especially the milk chocolate & passion fruit macaron! We also ordered the citron tart and it was amazing! I wish they would open an outlet in Singapore soon. haha I would definitely patronize them frequently.
We walked about the city and randomly saw this church and decided to just go in. Seriously, almost every building looks monumental or has certain history to it. gee. I love Europe :)
After wandering the city for a few hours, our stomachs started growling and we decided to head down to Chinatown for our dinner. We found an appealing Thai restaurant on Timeout and decided to give it a try. I ordered Pad Thai while hl ordered the chicken curry and we shared a bowl of Tom yum soup.
