On Our Own To British Museum, London

FOURTH DAY IN LONDON ON OUR OWN....

Aaron left for Aberdeen on Monday and we were on our own in London for two more days.  The three of us left behind had to be very careful and alert, as in how and where to go, which terminal to take the tube, which station to stop and so forth.   I even recorded on my phone just in case we forgot how... LOL... Aunties are like that!

Anyway, with an ex-marine with us, we ladies have some confidence.... somehow we managed to get our way out from the airport terminal, down to the tube station and all the way to town, stopping at Holborn, took our lunch at Nando's and then walked another ten minutes through the park before reaching the British Museum!

Again, admission is free..... only that we have to queue up for security inspection which was very swiftly done....
Outside Nando's after our brunch.... 


We walked through the park.... 
And the road leading to the London Museum opposite...
Just some meters away.... 
And here we are.... 
A fast queue leading into the entrance...
Inside the museum.... 
Some live performance was going on...
We walked here and there.... 
A couple of hours spent inside... 
before we headed out to a chinese restaurant for dinner.... 
Wrong move, it was rush hour when we reached the station... 
Checking out the map to see 
if there is another nearer station where it was not so crowded...
Somehow, we managed to make our way back to Heathrow Airport
Back to our comfortable hotel at Premier Inn...

  1. I know how it feels when it was rush hour. So many people. Cramped. Rather wait when lesser people.

  2. A very impressive museum! I like the Egyptian things. Still bundled up, I see. So it must be so cold. I love all the photos of you and your beautiful smile!

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
