Downing Street And Westminster Abbey Plus Vietnam Pho, London

FROM TRAFALGAR SQUARE, we walked to Downing Street where the locale of British Prime Ministers are since 1735.   On the way we passed by the Admiralty Arch....
The five arches of the Majestic Admiralty Arch lead from 
Trafalgar Square to the mall towards Buckingham Palace.
This Admiralty Arch was commissioned by King Edward V11 
who dedicated the structure to his mother Queen Victoria.  
 At Downing Street where the Guard House is....
No, not touching the horse... 
I might get a Kick!
At the Guard House... .
Inside the Guard House... just one round and we came out after visiting the museum.. 
Next door is the Downing Street residence where the PM stays and works... 
It was heavily guarded... 
Then from there, we walked to the Westminster....
 A home to many London's most iconic attractions such as the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben..
Westminster Abbey and the Palace of Westminster were originally built on a small island
called Thorney Island and have existed for around 1000 years...
Now I know..... 
Some pictures before it gets dark.... 
And for dinner.... we had these!
Vietnamese Pho and some sidekicks! 
Fried chicken wings was my favourite and the peanut sauce was incredibly tasty....
Well, I can say that was one ravishing meal for us!
 One for the album before the Intake.....
Chúc mừng ăn uống!!!

  3. Westminster Abbey and Big Ben are incredible!!! I thought the horse and rider were statues! I know the palace guards have to stand still and can show no emotion whatever happens. People try to make them laugh.

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
