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

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…
