Bienvenue à Paris!


Baguettes, croissants, wine and cheese! Bonjour Paris, here I come. The only
obstacle that need to be overcome is the French language of course.

Even still, I was full of anticipation and excitement. With the speeding
Thalys train I arrived full packed with a suitcase and two big bags at the
famous Gare du Nord, where I almost got robbed by a bunch of homeless kids.

Thank god there were policemen walking around where they helped me. That was
relieving, so the French citizens are nice!

From there on, it went only better. Despite the fact that I had to start my
internship and work as a full-timer five days a week, I still miss those
wonderful times at the office.

This is mainly because of the company youthful, informal and especially
multicultural environment. I have never seen so many nationalities on the
same working department altogether. From all Asian countries to Europe, all
the way to the US. The spoken language was English, but it was unavoidable
to hear French occasionally. Oh well, I am in Paris, what to expect.

As the company believed that by hiring someone who was actually born and
raised in a particular country, would bring better contribution to the
company's success. Therefore there were actual Malaysians, Swedish, Korean,
Finish, Italian, Japanese, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch (me) and many
more. Sharing culture differences, habits and phrases have never been so fun
an educating before.

All in all, it was a pleasant experience. Even the French people were not as
"arrogant" as they were being prejudiced by many. And they actually do speak
English if you as a non-French speaker put effort in understanding them.
Every month there is a local event going on in Paris. To name one as an
example: Nuit Blanche (white night). Between 19:00PM and 07:00PM, everyone
in Paris was stimulated to walk through whole Paris to see the white night;
art-(performances) with light can be seen. There were maps where to find
those mysterious art-(performances), so like a quest walking through Paris
not only makes you aware of its surroundings and beauty, but also you get
the know the secret passages in Paris.

I must say, Paris has grown into a wonderful, crowded city with
better-sociable French citizens! There is always something you can enjoy
yourself with!
