Considering a trip to London?


Culture, museums, pots of tea, the Royals, Harry Potter, Big Ben… There’s plenty of British traditions that are internationally recognised and are just some of the reasons why someone might want to visit the UK. Its capital city, London, alone attracts around 19 million tourists a year!
With so many traditionally British sights to see and delicacies to try, there’s plenty to occupy a traveller it can be hard to choose between them all. That’s why I’ve picked some of my favourites that you should add to your to-do list when planning your trip to London.

Landmark Tourist Spots
London’s sights and tourist attractions are known all over the world and many people will already feel like they know the city as it has featured in countless films and TV shows – such as Notting Hill, Harry Potter and Friends to name a few.

Make sure you fit the following must-see sights into your schedule:
  • ·         Buckingham Palace
  • ·         Big Ben
  • ·         London Eye
  • ·         Tower Bridge
  • ·         Westminster

With some careful planning, you can fit all these sights into a day and all of them are easy to reach on the underground or by foot. You could easily choose a hop on hop off bus tour too, which will take you around all of London’s most famous spots.

Madame Tussauds
It’s probably unlikely that you’ll bump into any celebs on your trip to London, but that’s okay because you can snap a photo with famous people from the past and present at Madame Tussauds. Whether you want to take a selfie with Shakespeare or get close to Kate and William, you can see how many of your friends at home you can convince that the waxworks are actually the real deal.

Bicester Village
If, like me, you love to bag a bargain on your holiday, Bicester Village is the place to be. A luxury shopping outlet village with premium brands like Gucci, Prada and Jimmy Choo, this is a shopper’s paradise and attracts visitors from around the world.

Afternoon Tea
What could be more quintessentially British than a spot of afternoon tea? Quaint and sophisticated, foodies should make sure they sample the traditional mini sandwiches, the freshly baked scones and the Earl Grey that comes with afternoon tea.

I’d recommend checking to see if your hotel serves up afternoon tea as many of the best ones will include it on their restaurant menu – take a look at the hotels available at Great Little Breaks to find the perfect one for your trip. 


With so many amazing and interesting things to see and do in London, I’m definitely planning my next trip to the UK’s capital city soon and so should you!

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
