Free Entrance At British Museum And Thai Thai Restaurant Old Street, London

IT WAS RAINING QUITE HEAVILY after our hearty Dim Sum brunch in Chinatown.  Initially our itinerary was to go to Camden Lock Market but it would no fun walking in the rain, according to Aaron.  The stalls would not be opened too... so we changed to Plan B.  First thing, we need shelter to avoid walking in the rain.  He suggested the British Museum where we could seek shelter *naughty of us* and at the same time, the entrance is FREE... yes, unless one donates willingly.  :)

With my scarf over my head and hoods over theirs, we made our way to the subway and within minutes, we were right the British Museum compound.  Got to queue up to go in because of the security but there was no long waiting, everything was checked and done efficiently and in no time, we were led into the museum.
The British Museum is free to all visitors and open everyday
 from 10am-5.30pm and until 8.30pm on Fridays.
It houses a vast collection of of world art and artefacts... 
I did not take any pictures inside the museum, we just walked around 
and browsed through the history of countries, one that interests us 
is Egypt!
Inside the museum..... 
By the time we came out from the museum, there was only a gentle drizzle, safe to 
walk without getting wet and we went to Oxford Street which is a home to more than 
300 shops and landmark and branded stores.... 
My girl was most excited!
Spent another couple of hours going in and out of the shops... 
 Took a break at Mark & Spencer Cafe... 
Our light teabreak to rest our legs.... 
and after that, we made our way back to Old Street... 
Passed by Thai Thai restaurant and ended up there for dinner... 
Something simple.... 
At the entrance... 
The ambiance was pretty impressive....
My girl loves Pad Thai and the portion was quite large...
Out of the five days we were there, it rained on this day.... 
And we need something hot and spicy to warm us up before we called it a Day...

  6. You have been blogging so many posts to lure me to visit London! LOL
    I told my niece last week that I would visit her next year because Claire's blog has been very exciting. Now I will definitely visit this Free Entrance museum since I love visiting Museums like crazy. That city rained also everyday when I was there for 2 weeks long ago.

    The decor ambiance of the Thai Restaurant is very lovely and nice.

  7. Camden Lock market is nice to visit on a sunny day. They had interesting stores but since the new management took over, things have changed. They have free WIFi🙂

    If you are into flowers and plants, Colombia flower market is the place. Its not far from Old Street. It's is cheap and huge discounts towards the end of market day. It is packed but the atmosphere is brill. There are stores selling cakes, hot drinks, freshly cooked squid etc.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
