no phototaking allowed in the room where Mona Lisa is located...they had 5 museum guards standing next to this painting looking out for people with cameras, however I managed to sneak this shot standing between 2 tall guys and without flash.

We had dinner with tourmates Zhoushang & Jiawen (both from Taiwan), and James (Malaysian living in Australia)

Chicken and Duck talking..
Amongst the 5 of us, only Alf had some knowledge of French (cuz he had some French class back in his poly days) so he was entrusted with the task of ordering for us.  However, menu was in French, waitress only know French, so we spent quite awhile trying to order.



Escargot.  Alf liked these.








Alf's Ice-cream from his Set meal....I ate it. :)
