Itinerary Ended At London Tower Bridge

A ROUND UP ON THE LAST DAY IN LONDON... We really made full use of our day, from Camden Market in the morning, then to Buckingham Palace, St James Park, Westminster Abbey and our walk continued on to Big Ben and lastly to London Bridge!

Throughout my life, I think I had not walked so much before... furthermore with my leg injury, I was expecting some pain here but to my amazement, this did not happen.  I only felt that my legs then did not belong to me anymore, they were like auto-cruise, they walked on and on... no more "FEELING"... hahahahaha... 


Coca Cola London Eye, Westminster Bridge Road...
And here we are!
And having fun with it... 

Just opposite is the Big Ben with the sun against us...
We didn't join the river cruise but we cruised along the River Thames... 
We crossed the bridge to the other side to join the tourists... 
As we walked along the banks of River Thames...
As we cruised along with our legs.... 
If not mistaken, this is Waterloo Bridge... 
Or is it Blackfriars Bridge... 
And from afar, we saw the iconic bridge.. Tower Bridge!
One must not leave London without coming here... so they say...
And so we must take one.... 
And two.... 

Coming nearer and nearer.... 
The Military Museum Ship at dock... 
Finally... after many endless footsteps..... we joined the crowd.... 
The first thing I did..... 
Sat rooted to the bench.... 
I am finally here!!
The London Tower Bridge... 
Bye.. till we meet again..someday!

  2. Did you go up the Eye. I wouldn't dare - I have developed this phobia for heights!!! Didn't use to have that problem, dunno if it has got to do with old age.

    2. Borough Market is in London Bridge. Best to go on Saturday when all the stores are open. The stuff are expansive but there are some gems. Good buys: Edam cheese from unpasteurised milk with complex flavours, Parma ham pork (vacuum pack, good for making soup).

      Each borough has its own farmers market. There are a couple of good ones, a bus ride or so from Old Street.

  5. Praise the Lord that you walk so much without experiencing any pain...

  6. Great fun pictures! I see you have managed to shrink the Eye so you can hold it. And the sun behind the palace is gorgeous! You never even look tired, you must have the energy of a 20 year old! Very healthy.

  7. The cruise very expensive leh, cruising on foot is a wise choice. Tired legs is temporary, memory is permanent. :P

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 …
