St James Park, Central Of London

FROM THE BUCKINGHAM PALACE, we walked to St. James Park which is nearby.  First thing first, we looked for the restroom and we have to fork out 20 pence to use them.  Well, we do not mind paying as long as the toilets are well kept and clean and that was exactly what they are.  With the hot weather looming above us, we got some lemonade to quench our thirst and we were amazed by the crowd who were out on this beautiful Sunday...

St James Park is a 23 hectare park situated in the City of Westminster, Central London and it is bounded by Buckingham Palce to the west, the Mall to the north, Horse Guards to the east and Birdcage Walk to the south.  The park has a small lake with two islands, West Island and Duck Island... 
One side was facing the London Eye... 


And the other side is called the Duck Island... 
no wonder there are families of ducks swimming in this beautiful lake... 
And the crowd like us who are crossing over the small bridge... 
A zooming angle of the scenery in front of us .... 
And this looks like a fairy tale castle.... 
Scenery on the other side where the ducks were enjoying their dips... 

And not forgetting our little poses as we walked along ..... 
And also spending some time taking a "breather" at the park....

  1. What a beautiful place!!! But they should not make people pay to use the bathrooms! Maybe that money goes to pay the upkeep though. If so, then not so bad.

  2. Lovely scenery. I am sure their public toilets are not like what we have here.

  3. 20p is a small price to pay for clean toilets. You look good in the photos. Weather is nice so everyone is out enjoying it.

  5. 20 pence is not bad. Convent Garden charges 50 pence.

    Do visit London in the next couple of years;
    Garden Bridge and Brixton Somerleton project. The latter has won an award for a project that hasn't even started. A high line of a mile long, along the concept of Manhattan's high line, is in the making. This project is the first of its kind in the UK, if successful it will be rolled across the country. I had a lot of input in the consultation stage including the selecting the architect (award winning).

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
