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.

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 …
