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!


  1. That was a lot of walking! So after that got eat a lot or not? Yeah, kwai loh love the sun. They purposely go and jemur themselves and we think they are so gila.

    1. hahaha..true true.. no, we ate like normal cos expensive to eat like a king in London!

  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.

    1. Out of the five days, only one day drizzle in London... hahaha.. Mickey Mouse is there to make a living...

  3. Yes whenever we go on holiday on our own and not with a tour agency, we would walk a lot! Nice photos! Yes, you could fly and soar up high in the sky!

    1. Tour agency is good in a way that everything is organized and don't need us to do homework.. :)

    2. But no freedom with tour agency.

  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!!!

    1. We saw them changing at another place nearby.. but no time to take picture...

  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.

  8. Hahaha so cute about running away from the sun.

  9. Beautiful park and great poses by Reana Claire! I will properly carry an umbrella to hide from the sun. Lol!

  10. Broke record! I dont think I ever walk that far in a day. Haha.

    Beautiful palace and park.

    1. More KM to come... I really thank God that I could walk for KM!!

  11. 14km! Puts me to shame for grumbling about walking 6-8km...

    1. gym, no shiok one.. must go walk in the cooling weather...

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days....

Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table...
Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served... 
Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns...  And the most delicious part is none other…

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 …

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again.

Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists....

Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street....

Come... Let's Go!
We started from the beginning of the street...  A …
