3 Enticing Reasons to Vacation in London


If Paris is the city of love, then London would be the city to fall in love with. There is an air about the city that is hard to capture in mere words. Despite being one of the busiest financial hubs in the world, London retains its old charm in majestic buildings, lush green parks, beautiful manors, and let’s not forget the iconic London bridge.  If that isn’t enough to get you packing and planning a trip to London, here are a few reasons why the royal city of London never fails to entice.

Getting around is a breeze
From metro stations to red London buses, getting around the city is highly convenient. Grab a map, and explore the city at your own leisure. If you’re on a tight budget, check out the Cheap London Hotels Guide for deals that are a steal ! One good tip would be to look for accommodation that will be close to the attractions you’re interested in visiting as that would save you a lot of time and hassle.
Allow yourself to get lost
London is a city that is full of surprises. Wander down an alley, and you may stumble upon quaint cafes with some of the city’s best teas. Or stroll down a lane, and you’ll be amazed at eclectic range of entertainment and stores for you to lose yourself in. Free up a day, and let your mind and soul wander. You’ll be glad you did.

Take a break from life
As hard as it may be to believe, you could lose your worries in the hustle and bustle of the busy streets of London. It may be England’s busiest city, but there are lots of options to suit every traveler. Take an evening to watch a musical in London’s famous West End, or splurge and reward yourself with a sumptuous meal at one of the city’s many gourmet offerings, take a break, you’ve earned it.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
