Itinerary Ended At London Tower Bridge

A ROUND UP ON THE LAST DAY IN LONDON... We really made full use of our day, from Camden Market in the morning, then to Buckingham Palace, St James Park, Westminster Abbey and our walk continued on to Big Ben and lastly to London Bridge!

Throughout my life, I think I had not walked so much before... furthermore with my leg injury, I was expecting some pain here but to my amazement, this did not happen.  I only felt that my legs then did not belong to me anymore, they were like auto-cruise, they walked on and on... no more "FEELING"... hahahahaha... 


Coca Cola London Eye, Westminster Bridge Road...
And here we are!
And having fun with it... 

Just opposite is the Big Ben with the sun against us...
We didn't join the river cruise but we cruised along the River Thames... 
We crossed the bridge to the other side to join the tourists... 
As we walked along the banks of River Thames...
As we cruised along with our legs.... 
If not mistaken, this is Waterloo Bridge... 
Or is it Blackfriars Bridge... 
And from afar, we saw the iconic bridge.. Tower Bridge!
One must not leave London without coming here... so they say...
And so we must take one.... 
And two.... 

Coming nearer and nearer.... 
The Military Museum Ship at dock... 
Finally... after many endless footsteps..... we joined the crowd.... 
The first thing I did..... 
Sat rooted to the bench.... 
I am finally here!!
The London Tower Bridge... 
Bye.. till we meet again..someday!

  2. Did you go up the Eye. I wouldn't dare - I have developed this phobia for heights!!! Didn't use to have that problem, dunno if it has got to do with old age.

    2. Borough Market is in London Bridge. Best to go on Saturday when all the stores are open. The stuff are expansive but there are some gems. Good buys: Edam cheese from unpasteurised milk with complex flavours, Parma ham pork (vacuum pack, good for making soup).

      Each borough has its own farmers market. There are a couple of good ones, a bus ride or so from Old Street.

  5. Praise the Lord that you walk so much without experiencing any pain...

  6. Great fun pictures! I see you have managed to shrink the Eye so you can hold it. And the sun behind the palace is gorgeous! You never even look tired, you must have the energy of a 20 year old! Very healthy.

  7. The cruise very expensive leh, cruising on foot is a wise choice. Tired legs is temporary, memory is permanent. :P

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....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

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...
