Le Petit Nicholas est tres tres marrant!

Earlier I posted here Le Petit Nicolas is showing in HK, I watched it last Friday, and it was very very very funny! The kids are adorable, and the story around the little school boys gang is cute. Although the house is only half full, you can hear loud laughter throughout the whole movie, I have to admit that amongst them mine could be the loudest! haha! I want to re-watch it, I will try to find the DVD in France.

Eurostar cheap tickets

One of the things I learnt from the preparation of this trip is that Eurostar's CHEAP tickets sold REALLY FAST! One night I was checking for tickets from Paris to London, and the price was 157 euros (return), so I was like "ok, it's too expensive, I will skip London this time."

The next day, I was checking my not-too-often-check hotmail email account, I found the Euro star newsletter (above), I clicked and key in the same days as before, the price was 88 euros (return)!! So cheap, but I wanted to ask my friend first cos I will be staying at her place, just want to check if the return time is ok...etc.

The next day, I got her email saying ok. But when I checked again, the 88 euros are gone!!! :( And then I was really thinking of giving up London...however, after a few hours of pondering, since I love Camden Market so much, I finally got it for 119 euros (return). Not as bad as the very beginning at least.

So, make sure you subscribed to Eurostar newsletter for special promotion.

But one day, Nicholas overhears a conversation between his parents which leads him to believe that his mother is expecting a child.
