Downing Street And Westminster Abbey Plus Vietnam Pho, London

FROM TRAFALGAR SQUARE, we walked to Downing Street where the locale of British Prime Ministers are since 1735.   On the way we passed by the Admiralty Arch....
The five arches of the Majestic Admiralty Arch lead from 
Trafalgar Square to the mall towards Buckingham Palace.
This Admiralty Arch was commissioned by King Edward V11 
who dedicated the structure to his mother Queen Victoria.  
 At Downing Street where the Guard House is....
No, not touching the horse... 
I might get a Kick!
At the Guard House... .
Inside the Guard House... just one round and we came out after visiting the museum.. 
Next door is the Downing Street residence where the PM stays and works... 
It was heavily guarded... 
Then from there, we walked to the Westminster....
 A home to many London's most iconic attractions such as the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben..
Westminster Abbey and the Palace of Westminster were originally built on a small island
called Thorney Island and have existed for around 1000 years...
Now I know..... 
Some pictures before it gets dark.... 
And for dinner.... we had these!
Vietnamese Pho and some sidekicks! 
Fried chicken wings was my favourite and the peanut sauce was incredibly tasty....
Well, I can say that was one ravishing meal for us!
 One for the album before the Intake.....
Chúc mừng ăn uống!!!

  3. Westminster Abbey and Big Ben are incredible!!! I thought the horse and rider were statues! I know the palace guards have to stand still and can show no emotion whatever happens. People try to make them laugh.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
