Great Shopping And Food Haven At Camden Market

THE VERY NEXT MORNING, THE SKY WAS SHINING BRIGHTLY!!  Thank God for the sunny blue sky after the shower of blessings on the previous day.  Our last day in London... we must cover as many places as we could on this sunny day!  Wasting no time, we ventured out quite early in the morning... our next destination is the Camden Market....

Camden Market started off as a small arts and crafts fair in the backyard of Dingwalls.  Originally it was oopened on Sundays only, however its popularity grows and now it is the largest market in London, open seven days a week.  Camden is an open air market filled with 1000 over stalls that will keep the shoppers busy with crafts, books, clothing, jewelry, international fast food, souvenir stalls, household items and many more items! 

For me and my girl, this is the place where we wanna be... shop and shop till we drop!  It was the second time visit for Aaron so the first place he led us to was none other than the International food fest for our lunch!
From the station, we came out and we were really fascinated with the Big Crowd aka The Shoppers..
Reminded me of Bangkok here... lots and lots of things to see and buy...
Endless shops and souvenirs... so much cheaper than where we bought our stuff earlier.. 
We should have come here and get them.... 
As we walked along.... 
Every shop has their own theme and decoration....
Indeed it was a nice and sunny day for us all... shoppers! 
We like this!
The dockyard canal next to the Camden Market.... 
 At the entrance of the Camden Market.... 
 Inside the market... where we joined in the hustle and bustle of the crowd... 
 I think we could spend half a day just walking and shopping here.... 
But of course, we didn't.... 
Let's look for food first before we shop... 
No food No battery.... LOL...
 Alright... what shall we eat first???
Appetizers... 
 Spanish rice with all the healthy ingredients... 
Really different from what we eat here in Malaysia... 
We waited quite a long time for these!
Danish pancakes with Chocolate!!
Camden Market, we LIKE!
YES!  Hope we can come visit again next time!

  1. The pancakes look awesome! What a cool place! Giant shoes, fruits and elephant. So much great looking food. Did you buy anything? Beautiful canal with weeping willows, almost like two completely different places.

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…
