Great Shopping And Food Haven At Camden Market

THE VERY NEXT MORNING, THE SKY WAS SHINING BRIGHTLY!!  Thank God for the sunny blue sky after the shower of blessings on the previous day.  Our last day in London... we must cover as many places as we could on this sunny day!  Wasting no time, we ventured out quite early in the morning... our next destination is the Camden Market....

Camden Market started off as a small arts and crafts fair in the backyard of Dingwalls.  Originally it was oopened on Sundays only, however its popularity grows and now it is the largest market in London, open seven days a week.  Camden is an open air market filled with 1000 over stalls that will keep the shoppers busy with crafts, books, clothing, jewelry, international fast food, souvenir stalls, household items and many more items! 

For me and my girl, this is the place where we wanna be... shop and shop till we drop!  It was the second time visit for Aaron so the first place he led us to was none other than the International food fest for our lunch!
From the station, we came out and we were really fascinated with the Big Crowd aka The Shoppers..
Reminded me of Bangkok here... lots and lots of things to see and buy...
Endless shops and souvenirs... so much cheaper than where we bought our stuff earlier.. 
We should have come here and get them.... 
As we walked along.... 
Every shop has their own theme and decoration....
Indeed it was a nice and sunny day for us all... shoppers! 
We like this!
The dockyard canal next to the Camden Market.... 
 At the entrance of the Camden Market.... 
 Inside the market... where we joined in the hustle and bustle of the crowd... 
 I think we could spend half a day just walking and shopping here.... 
But of course, we didn't.... 
Let's look for food first before we shop... 
No food No battery.... LOL...
 Alright... what shall we eat first???
Appetizers... 
 Spanish rice with all the healthy ingredients... 
Really different from what we eat here in Malaysia... 
We waited quite a long time for these!
Danish pancakes with Chocolate!!
Camden Market, we LIKE!
YES!  Hope we can come visit again next time!

  1. The pancakes look awesome! What a cool place! Giant shoes, fruits and elephant. So much great looking food. Did you buy anything? Beautiful canal with weeping willows, almost like two completely different places.

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 …
