Buckingham Palace And Hyde Park, London

FROM CAMDEN MARKET, WE ADJOURNED VIA SUBWAY TO BUCKINGHAM PALACE... Another one place I have visited since the 1980s!  I could still remember the Buckingham Palace and Hyde Park.... nothing much has changed and since it was a Sunday, the roads were closed from cars and it was a very long walk for the three of us.  This is the day that we broke our record... Walking! My son told me that we have walked around 14km on this very last day in London..... Oh me Oh my!
Reaching Hyde Park first... many were already basking under the sun...
Deck chairs were provided and we could rent it by the hour.... to sunbath... 
But of course, we being Asians do not sunbath... we run away from the sun if possible! 
In front of Buckingham Palace.... The sun was glaring at us!
Panorama view of the Palace... 
Royal Park... 
Around the vicinity of the Buckingham Palace and Royal Park.. 
To mark our presence, we did a tip toe pose... 
Takes two to tango... 
And the beautiful landscape around the Park...
The many poses of Reanaclaire... 
hmmmm... ladies!! 

Spread my arms out wide... to fly... 
To... St James Park!
Wish I could fly... YES!

  2. The garden is beautiful and so are so! I have always heard that London gets so much rain, rains most of the time. But it looks like you had beautiful weather for most of the visit. I wonder if Mickey Mouse has come to visit the queen. Or maybe to see the famous Reana Claire.

  4. Walking is good, can see a lot of place and when you walk pass a place that you like, you can stop and look see look see at that place whereby if you follow tour, can't do that, have to follow the itinerary...

  5. Your photos are lovely and colourful because the weather was kind and bright!
    Did the Queen invite you to sip Earl Grey with her favourite scones?

  6. Did you see the Changing of the Guards? I did not go - it was near winter and the guards were dressed in grey, not nice...but I saw a different changing of the "guards" at Oxford Street - a model modelling lingerie for a photo shoot. Certainly a lot more exciting. Hehehehehe!!!

  7. Nice pics. There are nice walks along the river on tarmac.

    The docks in East London have nice walks along the river, too. Lots of history and pretty backdrops. The roads are on tarmac.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
