Buckingham Palace And Hyde Park, London

FROM CAMDEN MARKET, WE ADJOURNED VIA SUBWAY TO BUCKINGHAM PALACE... Another one place I have visited since the 1980s!  I could still remember the Buckingham Palace and Hyde Park.... nothing much has changed and since it was a Sunday, the roads were closed from cars and it was a very long walk for the three of us.  This is the day that we broke our record... Walking! My son told me that we have walked around 14km on this very last day in London..... Oh me Oh my!
Reaching Hyde Park first... many were already basking under the sun...
Deck chairs were provided and we could rent it by the hour.... to sunbath... 
But of course, we being Asians do not sunbath... we run away from the sun if possible! 
In front of Buckingham Palace.... The sun was glaring at us!
Panorama view of the Palace... 
Royal Park... 
Around the vicinity of the Buckingham Palace and Royal Park.. 
To mark our presence, we did a tip toe pose... 
Takes two to tango... 
And the beautiful landscape around the Park...
The many poses of Reanaclaire... 
hmmmm... ladies!! 

Spread my arms out wide... to fly... 
To... St James Park!
Wish I could fly... YES!

  2. The garden is beautiful and so are so! I have always heard that London gets so much rain, rains most of the time. But it looks like you had beautiful weather for most of the visit. I wonder if Mickey Mouse has come to visit the queen. Or maybe to see the famous Reana Claire.

  4. Walking is good, can see a lot of place and when you walk pass a place that you like, you can stop and look see look see at that place whereby if you follow tour, can't do that, have to follow the itinerary...

  5. Your photos are lovely and colourful because the weather was kind and bright!
    Did the Queen invite you to sip Earl Grey with her favourite scones?

  6. Did you see the Changing of the Guards? I did not go - it was near winter and the guards were dressed in grey, not nice...but I saw a different changing of the "guards" at Oxford Street - a model modelling lingerie for a photo shoot. Certainly a lot more exciting. Hehehehehe!!!

  7. Nice pics. There are nice walks along the river on tarmac.

    The docks in East London have nice walks along the river, too. Lots of history and pretty backdrops. The roads are on tarmac.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
