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.

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
