Short Talk:

In two weeks time, I'll be heading over to London for the Tiger Translate art and music festival. Gonna be making a detour to visit Paris while I'm there.

Here's the thing though: accommodation in Paris is bloody expensive. Instead of paying 50 Euros (RM250) for a pathetic bed in the red-light district, can anyone recommend a cheapo place I could stay without selling my backside?

Egg McMuffin

Hello everybahdy, this is Egg McMuffin.

Egg McMuffin is a present from Pinkpau. It's yellow, it's round and it's very very soft. I have been obsessing over him ever since I saw it on her blog, so she bought one for me right before she left for New York.

Thank you, Su Ann. Now I have something to use as a football.

Kidding!

Don't worry, I will sayang my Egg McMuffin so when you come back he can mate with your Egg McMuffin. I know your Egg McMuffin is male as well but that is okay.

They can just swear on a religious book and pretend it never actually took place.

Thank you again. I really like it. I also have no idea why I like your overstuffed round chicken so much.

But I think it's because I secretly think he looks like me.

Yes, our resemblance is just so uncanny.

"They can just swear on a religious book and pretend it never actually took place."

Hahhaa, nice one! Funniest reference I've read in your blog yet.

Unregistered

Try a Youth Hostel, 50 euros is already considered very cheap in Paris.

Unregistered

that's really cute! :)

Unregistered

Unregistered

You should try couchsurfing.com

Unregistered

I want that chicken!! SO CUTE!!! XDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

Unregistered

Kenny this is random but you're wearing the same orange round neck that I'm wearing now >_

Unregistered

Hey Kenny.Was trying to look it up for you but then a problem occurred: I wasn't sure of the exact date that you are travelling. :p Here's the link to HostelBookers (http://www.hostelbookers.com/), I use it to search for hostels/hotels whenever I travel to Europe.It's very handy,with all the info you need and the prices aren't that expensive (some of them of course.and you can get less than EUR 30 for a bed with ideal location.)
My recommendation is: Perfect Hostel located in Rue Rodier,a stone's throw away from Moulin Rouge, metro station and Basilica of the Sacred Heart.
*Cheers*

u could try staying at paris international campsites instead, which usually have cabins or mobile homes for rent. i stayed at a campsite when i was there in june and it cost me £7 per nite or less than RM50 for a shared cabin. the campsite that i was staying at is near paris city centre itself and its quite clean (important cuz u'd be using communal toilets), plus u get to know a lot of frens. i stayed there for 3 nites, no complaints except for an incident where my fren saw a guy wanking in his room with his door wide open. o_O

cant remember wats the name of the campsite, its paris est sumthing sumthing....but i can try to find out if ur interested. =)

Unregistered

You seem to have lost weight! Your face is skinnier, as a matter of fact. Yes, the first picture I saw already reminded me of you.

Hahaha.

Unregistered

hey kenny! can i know where can i get one egg mcmuffin too? i'm soooo in love with it =))

Unregistered

hi, i see some have given you suggestions for Paris. all the same- try youth hostel. i stayed at one a few yrs back and it was less that euro20 per bed.

Unregistered

Both Hostelworld.com and hostelbookers.com is great for budget travelling. Been using it alot for my Europe trips. Try it out =)

Unregistered

Hi,
I went to Paris in May & stayed at a studio apartment for 52euros per night.It's situated less than 10mins away from the Moulin Rouge and walking distance from Montmarte. It came with a shower and kitchenette but the toilet's in the corridor. Got it from this website http://www.apartmentsapart.com/paris_hotels/index.htm. Give it a try :)

Unregistered

Oh. It's this one here.

Unregistered

They can just swear on a religious book and pretend it never actually took place.

Kenny is a chinaman who is not sensitive to the feelings of others. He really think that he can make a joke out of everything. Maybe because he's from Kuching which are Chinese-majority. I'm a Chinese too but please, we are Malaysian.

Maybe it's time to ponder when Hari Malaysia is just around the corner, or to be accurate, 16th September.

Many colours, one race
Many parties, one nation

Unregistered

hello all!

i bought Egg Mcmuffin at a little shop in sungei wang. it's a colorful little toy stand that's either directly one floor above or below Famous Amos. i think 1U and Mid Valley has the same shop.

KENNY DONT U DARE USE HIM AS A FOOTBALL T____T

Unregistered

hey! i have one too! can they mate too? XD

Unregistered

Hi kenny,

just got back from paris yesterday. wonderful place.

stayed at Young and Happy Hostel, 80 rue Mouffetard (booked it at hostelworld.com). my friend and i got a room to ourselves that comes with a double deck bed and a sink for 26euros a night.

it's pretty clean and is located in the latin quarter, meaning there's eateries, pubs of all range and types that open till late. never go hungry. hee. nice food, esp the cheese fondue and friendly neighbourhood. 5 mins walk to the metro.

pretty safe place. had no probs walking around at night. (i'm a female.)

have a nice trip.

-dk

Unregistered

Zomg I feel like getting one as well now lol.

Unregistered

Hotel De Lille Louvre

Unregistered

Hi Kenny,

hostelworld.com is one of the best sites I would recommend you. I used it throughout my trips in Europe, and I could generally get acceptable dorms/rooms for

Unless of course you have grown used to hotel rooms =P

Unregistered

HEY I'm going to the festival too!! It's going to be heaps of fun!!!

Unregistered

I just got back from Paris 2 weeks ago and I stayed at this place called Hotel Campanile. It's right outside a Paris metro stop that goes direct into the city so you've got transportation covered. they've got promotions online like a 3N for the price of 2 so you might wanna check it out. Afterall, we paid only 14EUR for a twinshare.

Unregistered

LOL~ How come call it Egg McMuffin?
Should be McChicken or Spicy Chicken Deluxe...

Unregistered

YEAH

WHY IS IT CALLED EGG MCMUFFIN???

Unregistered

I recommend the Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris near Champs Elysees. The lobby is free and you are sure to expect 1st class service.

Unregistered

u don't have to stay at the heart of Paris city, if u stay out a little, at zone 2, outside the city circle, it would be significantly cheaper.. just make sure the Metro runs nearby..

Unregistered

I love you lah Kenny...so cutie :)

Unregistered

try etap hotel which is part of accorhotels.com chain

i stayed in their branch in Jaure station 6 months ago. clean rooms and quiet neighbourhood with convenient store next door.

Unregistered

You are so lucky. Always get to fly to all the places in the world. Envy envy envy...

Unregistered

haha anybody knows where to get Mc deluxe?

Unregistered

oh yeah,unkenny resemblance

Unregistered

Try www.hostelworld.com
I often use this site when i was studying in London. i got a private room with attached bathrooms that serves breakfast on bed for 10+ euros! But if you're taking a room by youself, it should costs you around 20-30 Euros bah. ;)

Unregistered

Hey Kenny,
Your Egg McMuffin look the exactly the same with mine!..But I never knew its name is Egg McMuffin..Geez, i just called mine 'Yellow Chick'...Anyway, my Yellow Chick slightly bigger than yours and bought from Langkawi..hehe

Unregistered

Hehe...long-lost brothers? :P

Unregistered

You can check out the hostel "The 3 Ducks". Quite cheap, the last time i was there, it was 17 euros a night including breakfast. Well, the breakfast wasn't much, just baguettes, jam, cheese, salami...but enuff to get me through the day...everything so expensive in Paris..sigh....

To be honest, the place is quite run down, but if you want cheap and dun mind sharing rooms and creaking bunk beds and common toilet...then...it's the way to go...

oh...there's a bar at the hostel that goes practically whole night, so bring earplugs if u're a light sleeper..

What I've learned from my friend in france is that in Paris, most of the cheap hostels are is sh*t condition unlike other europe cities...so don't expect much.

hope that helps abit...ahhh....who cares about sh*tty hostels....YOU'RE IN PARIS~~~~~so nice :)

Unregistered

you are so cute with that toys...

Unregistered

you just wanted an excuse to camwhore wit a soft toy don't lie you ah lian hahahaa

i love kennysiadotcom.

Unregistered

hey, kenny

no offence, but i see this post as an attempt to be funny and to gain visits for your blog.
it's like it's just to be responsible to have a post up, any post even if it means it's boring and typical of kenny sia to just post something so childish and lame, just so the readers would have something new to read.
don't get me wrong, i like your blog.
only when it's about your trips like the last post, i really enjoyed it.
fact is, your sense of humour isn't great.
it's not all that entertaining but when you get literal and give out good information about good food locations and cheap accomadations, then you strike gold.

no hard feelings.

Unregistered

This is irrelevant but I think I see sensor/lens dust in the 3rd pic. Perhaps it's time to do some cleaning?

Registered

Victor, no worries, none taken. :) thing is, different people wanna read different things when they come to my site. The travel entries may appeal to frequent travellers yes, but it does nothing to ppl who don't do much travelling, eg students. Those who hate reading my travel entries may prefer something a little more light-hearted and tongue in cheek. Then there are those who come to my blog just to read my political thoughts.

At the end of the day, different ppl have different reasons why they come to this blog. And I have my own reasons why I choose to blog certain topics and not others.

If its literal information that you prefer, perhaps you're at the wrong site. travel sites like wikitravel.org or tripadvisor.com would be more your cup of tea. :)

Unregistered

wow... paris... lucky you :)

have fun

Unregistered

kenny mcmuffin. or was it kenny mcegg?

Unregistered

Hey! I got one as well. look exactly like urs XD

Unregistered

try Ibis hotels for stay in Paris

the price are decent, en-suited, and the rooms are superb

Unregistered

friends hostel is 20€ per nite. available on instant confirmation. try searching for it at www.wego.com

Unregistered

Going to paris? Stay in my villa, free of charge.

Unregistered

i don't mean to b*tch but the last time i backpacked n stayed in bunker beds with other ppl(i won't say where), someone had the audacity to say that his wallet got stolen that night...so'd i'd recommend youthhostel.com find a room urself,...or better still find a local pastor residing there and see if you can stay in their church. Alternatively, you could be a member of Sunway vacation club where you get 200 points in exchange for limited stays in certain 3/5 star hotels around the world~! Good luck and bon voyage.

Unregistered

aloha hostel(15th ardt) or 3 ducks. or you can sleep in the metro stations/streets. hehe..

for slightly cheaper asian food go to the 13th (metro: olympiades/porte d'ivry) and get a vietnamese sandwich (2.40E). 7.50E will get you a good big bowl of pho in le bambou (72 rue baudricourt). sandwich grec (kebab sandwich) + fries (ard 4.50E) is also a cheap way to fill your stomach. the resto 'leon de bruxelles' has an unlimited 'fries' flow once you order one of their menu.

if you like pastry, check out fauchon, pierre herme, sadaharu aoki, laduree. a little pricey but quite worth the short lived pleasure in the mouth..haa..

amuses-toi bien :)

Unregistered

Hey Kenny, I got a pair of overstuffed doggies named Mocco and Cocco.

Unregistered

Unregistered

kenny..ive been to paris..try to book hostel room from www.hostelworld.com ")

Unregistered

tsk tsk
so indignant

Unregistered

Hey Kenny I dont know if will to read this comment. But I do have some good suggestions on the accomodation for Paris.
You can try www.booking.com. They have got a list of hotels with reviews and you can compare the price and go for the best.

But if you were to stay for longer and plan to go on a europe trip for 7 days (might as well right?). You can try www.wanguk.com/english. I have been to a europe trip last year to a few countries (France, Belgium, Amsterdam, Luxumbourge) with accomodation and 2 meals included but they only cost me £300++. So that's surely a good bargain.

There is still another option. You can have a look at www.thomascook.com if you want to book your flight and accomodation in Paris. They offer late deals from time to time. So I reckon that it will be cheaper for you to purchase your air ticket and book your accomodation at the same time.

Hopefully, all the information above helps. Have a pleasant trip!

Unregistered

kenny, u r so corny and so cute.
