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.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is....

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

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...
