Fun At Trafalgar Square, London

FROM COVENT GARDEN, WE CONTINUED ON OUR SIGHTSEEING TO TRAFALGAR SQUARE.... Did we walk or did we not?  I could not remember but I think we did.. Walking in the cooling weather is not a problem unless we were not warmly clothed.  Weather in London was very nice and cooling unlike Aberdeen which is cold and cold throughout the day.  For me, my legs must be warmly covered and that includes good shoes on my feet.  My pair of sneaker boots has wool inside, I remember last year I wore only one of them, this year I could wear one pair.  LOL....

Trafalgar Square... It is my second time there, in the 1980s, I remember there were lots of pigeons and they were so tame that they just stood on our hands or shoulders.  But this time I did not see any of them at the square now.  Come to think of it, perhaps it is due to hygienic reasons.... Written in Wikepedia, Trafalgar Square is a public square in the City of Westminster, built around the area formerly known as Charing Cross.  Its name commemorates the Battle of Trafalgar, a British naval victory in the Napoleonic Wars with France and Spain during the 1800s.

It is good to be here again after more than three decades...
Taking a rest when we reached Trafalgar Square....
Must be one long walk now come to think of it... 
Traffic around the square... 
Took lots of photos here and everywhere....  
Our moments in Trafalgar.... 
An exciting jump before we left the scene... 
Go Go.... Power Rangers... 
 Yours truly did not want to lose out... 
I made a JUMP too... 
But mine is definitely not Power Rangers...
Mine is more like "Arrrrhhhhhhh"
Leg Pain!

  1. Wow!! Mummy can jump so high! Your legs are strong again.

    I went to Trafalgar Square on one New Year's Eve where there would be the annual kissing rituals. Just line up to the middle and everyone can kiss anyone they fancy!! There were thousands of people and think about the salivas, errrr no thanks!

  2. The population of the pigeon has fallen rapidly since July 2003, when former London Mayor Ken Livingstone called time on the birds and introduced hawks to scare them off.

    But the hawk doesn't come cheap. It emerged that the services of the hawk, four hours a day, between 6.30am and 10.30am, plus transport from his Essex roost and the chicken titbits used to keep him sweet - cost almost £60,000 a year. On the hand, the costs of cleaning the square has dropped.

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…
