Things Different in France

Things Different in France

This time was my third time I visited France. Visiting France for Christmas festive was a different experience than my other visits. It filled with family gatherings, food, champagne, and gifts! It was the first time I received so many cadeaux, mostly about skincare, which is my current addiction.

In this post, I am not going tell how we spent our Christmas and New Year’s Eve because basically it was an intimate moment with other family members. Good time for me to get to know more member of C and K clans.

In 2015, I joined Goodreads reading challenge to read 12 books, but I managed only to read ten books (one book was not available on Goodreads). This year I increase the number up to 15 books with an expectation to read at least two books in a month. Current reading is a true story about a royal family in Saudi Arabia. The title is Princess More Tears to Cry written by Jean Sasson. I quite like this book and now on page 155 out of 392. The next book to read is 5W1H written by Yoris Sebastian. It has only 131 pages, I will manage to nail two books in January. For the next few months, I am eyeing some books on Amazon since they are not available at our local bookstore. It is going to be my first purchase on this site. Excited.
