"La Rochelle is a city and commune of western France, and a seaport on the Atlantic Ocean (population 78,000 in 2004). It is the préfecture (capital) of the Charente-Maritime département(17). The city is connected to the Île de Ré (island) by a 2.9 km bridge, completed in 1988. Its harbour opens into a protected strait, the Pertuis d'Antioche."
Kami bertolak awal pagi sabtu ke La Rochelle.This is the third time we've been here since last yr..Sebenarnya hajat hendak mengunjungi "PESTA LAUT LA ROCHELLE"..tapi pesta tersebut telah dibatalkan kerana keadaan cuaca yang amat buruk,hujan,angin kencang,kilat,guruh dan sebagainya..Tiada rezeki nampaknya for this year..Next time InsyaAllah..
Since there was no 'fete'..we decided to go for a sight-seeing at the town.. shopping and window-shopping la kan... Then,after lunch we took a bus to Yati's house..
Yati-A very warm lady,funny,unpredictable,lots of laughter,charming and luminous heart...
Masa turun dari bus..kami betul-betul berhenti di hadapan sawah gandum.. This is my first experience looking at the real field of wheat. Luas mata memandang.. Sebelum wheat,padang ini ditanam dengan bunga kolza dan selepas wheat, ditanam pula bunga matahari.. bersilih ganti mengikut musim..
Then in the evening,kami bersama tourist guide kami,mademoiselle Lea (Yati's daughter) mengambil peluang berjalan2 ke sekitar taman perumahan.. Saya mengabdikan detik-detik manis ini dengan mengambil foto-foto bunga,rumah-rumah,aksi-aksi lucu dan lain2... Cuasa masih sejuk dan berangin..
For the next day lunch,we were served with the seafood cuisine... the langoustine(Dublin Bay Prawn) and the mussels... Waaaa...banyak sedap looo... The langoustine are very easy to cook..just boil them for 3 minutes with fish cubes..
On Monday afternoon,we left La Rochelle with lots of sweet memories.. "Merci beaucoup to Joel and Yati for your hospitality and also the delicious seafood dishes.." Semoga berjumpa lagi..

The escargots (snails) The french people love to eat the escargots.. Do you dare to eat it!? In France, escargots are typically only eaten on festive occasions.. Typically, the snails are removed from their shells, gutted, cooked (usually with garlic butter), and then poured back into the shells together with the butter and sauce for serving, often on a plate with several shell-sized depressions.
I heard that there are 'halal' escargots in Brunei..
Very cheap..6 euro per kg Do you want some?

There are lots of them in France and one of their food specialite.. France produces almost 400 different varieties of cheese, each one is as distinctive as a finger print. Each region has its specialty — Normandy, France’s kingdom of milk and cream, is famous for unctuous Camembert and Pont l’Evêque; the Loire Valley and Provence for the tangy goat’s milk cheeses; Alsace for robust Munster; the Alpine region for firmer, subtly-flavored cheeses, such as Reblochon and Beaumont; the Paris area for the world’s most prestigious cheese, Brie — even from the Pyrénées comes Chiberta, firm, slightly nutty- flavored, a specialty of which the hardy Basque people are proud.
Durian 7 euro per kg!
Most of it came from Thailand... 'Ingat nak beli tapi tahan je la.. Makan puas-puas kat Malaysia nanti ye tak..'

Hi..everyone..my real name is Muhammad Wafeeq but you also can call me..Wafeeq.. My sister..Nasrin Humaira calls me 'abang long'.
Today I would like to share with you a little bit of my life story..
I was born in 31 October 2001 in Kota Bharu Kelantan at 3.30 p.m.. Ibu told me that she was shocked to see me because my skin colour turned to be so fair and not as black as what she saw a minute after I was born..so funny.. And yet..I am still fair until now..why? Ibu told me that..maybe because every night she ate a lot of water-melon and ice-cream during her pregnancy period.. funny again..
Now,I am 6 years old.I went to E'cole Perochon school just 5 minutes from my home.. The picture above was taken last year with my classmates and teachers.. Can you spot me?
My fifth birthday party
My lessons begin at 8.30 a.m until 4.15 everyday except for Wednesday. On Wednesday,my lessons end at 11.30 a.m. Every Friday evening,I went for my swim class activity..It is so fun to be there.. I think my Ibu will show you the pictures about the swimming soon.. During my free time ,I like to play football with my sister, cycling and play playstation games.. My favourite colour is red and my favourite number is number 1..
Now,I can speak french,English,Bahasa Melayu and loghat Kedah too.. Every night after solat,my parents taught me 'mengaji',English,Maths and Bahasa Melayu too..They said that I must be well prepared before I can enter the school in Malaysia.. But I like Maths very much..instead of English..
This is my exercise book..I coloured and drew the picture of me by myself..
This is my drawing of a red whale.. It has big body with a tiny tail..
And this is my video which was taken by my Ibu during my English lesson with her..my ayah will mark my written exercises.. ok..bye.. Merci beaucoup for reading my entry..
