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!

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
