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

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
