Fun At Trafalgar Square, London

FROM COVENT GARDEN, WE CONTINUED ON OUR SIGHTSEEING TO TRAFALGAR SQUARE.... Did we walk or did we not?  I could not remember but I think we did.. Walking in the cooling weather is not a problem unless we were not warmly clothed.  Weather in London was very nice and cooling unlike Aberdeen which is cold and cold throughout the day.  For me, my legs must be warmly covered and that includes good shoes on my feet.  My pair of sneaker boots has wool inside, I remember last year I wore only one of them, this year I could wear one pair.  LOL....

Trafalgar Square... It is my second time there, in the 1980s, I remember there were lots of pigeons and they were so tame that they just stood on our hands or shoulders.  But this time I did not see any of them at the square now.  Come to think of it, perhaps it is due to hygienic reasons.... Written in Wikepedia, Trafalgar Square is a public square in the City of Westminster, built around the area formerly known as Charing Cross.  Its name commemorates the Battle of Trafalgar, a British naval victory in the Napoleonic Wars with France and Spain during the 1800s.

It is good to be here again after more than three decades...
Taking a rest when we reached Trafalgar Square....
Must be one long walk now come to think of it... 
Traffic around the square... 
Took lots of photos here and everywhere....  
Our moments in Trafalgar.... 
An exciting jump before we left the scene... 
Go Go.... Power Rangers... 
 Yours truly did not want to lose out... 
I made a JUMP too... 
But mine is definitely not Power Rangers...
Mine is more like "Arrrrhhhhhhh"
Leg Pain!

  1. Wow!! Mummy can jump so high! Your legs are strong again.

    I went to Trafalgar Square on one New Year's Eve where there would be the annual kissing rituals. Just line up to the middle and everyone can kiss anyone they fancy!! There were thousands of people and think about the salivas, errrr no thanks!

  2. The population of the pigeon has fallen rapidly since July 2003, when former London Mayor Ken Livingstone called time on the birds and introduced hawks to scare them off.

    But the hawk doesn't come cheap. It emerged that the services of the hawk, four hours a day, between 6.30am and 10.30am, plus transport from his Essex roost and the chicken titbits used to keep him sweet - cost almost £60,000 a year. On the hand, the costs of cleaning the square has dropped.

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
