Considering a trip to London?


Culture, museums, pots of tea, the Royals, Harry Potter, Big Ben… There’s plenty of British traditions that are internationally recognised and are just some of the reasons why someone might want to visit the UK. Its capital city, London, alone attracts around 19 million tourists a year!
With so many traditionally British sights to see and delicacies to try, there’s plenty to occupy a traveller it can be hard to choose between them all. That’s why I’ve picked some of my favourites that you should add to your to-do list when planning your trip to London.

Landmark Tourist Spots
London’s sights and tourist attractions are known all over the world and many people will already feel like they know the city as it has featured in countless films and TV shows – such as Notting Hill, Harry Potter and Friends to name a few.

Make sure you fit the following must-see sights into your schedule:
  • ·         Buckingham Palace
  • ·         Big Ben
  • ·         London Eye
  • ·         Tower Bridge
  • ·         Westminster

With some careful planning, you can fit all these sights into a day and all of them are easy to reach on the underground or by foot. You could easily choose a hop on hop off bus tour too, which will take you around all of London’s most famous spots.

Madame Tussauds
It’s probably unlikely that you’ll bump into any celebs on your trip to London, but that’s okay because you can snap a photo with famous people from the past and present at Madame Tussauds. Whether you want to take a selfie with Shakespeare or get close to Kate and William, you can see how many of your friends at home you can convince that the waxworks are actually the real deal.

Bicester Village
If, like me, you love to bag a bargain on your holiday, Bicester Village is the place to be. A luxury shopping outlet village with premium brands like Gucci, Prada and Jimmy Choo, this is a shopper’s paradise and attracts visitors from around the world.

Afternoon Tea
What could be more quintessentially British than a spot of afternoon tea? Quaint and sophisticated, foodies should make sure they sample the traditional mini sandwiches, the freshly baked scones and the Earl Grey that comes with afternoon tea.

I’d recommend checking to see if your hotel serves up afternoon tea as many of the best ones will include it on their restaurant menu – take a look at the hotels available at Great Little Breaks to find the perfect one for your trip. 


With so many amazing and interesting things to see and do in London, I’m definitely planning my next trip to the UK’s capital city soon and so should you!

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

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
