The blogging bandwagon has temporarily abandoned me as reality of life and work hit hard the past couple of months. The dust has finally settled for now and I think I better just finish up the rest of my London and Paris trip... in Insta-mmary version.
Did some Monopoly stops. Yes. I actually dug out my Monopoly set at home and brought along the deed cards with me. Boo said I was crazy and actually shook his head in disbelief when he saw me took them out when we were in London. He also rolled his eyes when I asked him to take the few shots with my S3 but he helped anyway!
|Euston Road. Actually pretty near our hotel.|
|The Angel Islington. Where Boo's 'hood use to be.|
|Regent Street. Where the posh and not shops till they drop.|
|Oxford Street. Where the shops to go to are.|
|Vine Street. Found this by chance. Was a bit hidden.|
One of the days we scheduled for some London sights, was apparently a good sunny day, a combination of sun and cool breeze. Did not do much Instagram shots (saving S3 battery power) so here's the few from London Eye.
|London Eye on a bright sunny day. Shot from the river cruise.|
|Boo and I on top of the London Eye!|
|Pardner in shopping crime.|
But I not as shopaholic. Haha!
|Slushies on the grass! Boo couldn't resist.|
Later on the same evening, we made our way to The Shard. A new building in London - almost equivalent to KL's Twin Towers.
|The Shard. Looking up from the 72nd floor.|
|The Shard. View of London from the 72nd floor.|
|Watched "The Chorus Line". Last minute decision.|
|Platform 9 3/4 at King's Cross. Just had to do the tourist thing.|
|Mini #UJ and I walking the streets and markets of London.|
|Pretty tulips in the park.|
|Love this composition. Some random place in Liverpool.|
|Must admit. This was the best hot chocolate so far.|
|Apparently, Boo said that this stuffed woogie was sleeping|
in the same position when it was still alive. Creepy!
|Hot mocha before Iron Man 3.|
|I like! Tulips in flower boxes doubling up as your wheel's parking.|
|Cannot resist! Chinese roast meat in London.|
|Pretty flowers. Almost felt like I was in Japan.|
|Random. Someone's garden.|
|Yummers brunch at Angel. The Breakfast Club.|
Shopping was one of the agenda as well. No specific objective on what to buy. Just got stuff that cannot get back at home.
|Bought wands! Mine's Hermione. Boo's Snape.|
|Bought this random choo-choo train|
brooch in the markets of Angel. Pwetty.
|Bought milk bottles in tray. Coz it was cheaper|
and prettier than what I can get back home for.
|Primark shopping. Best place to get souveniers.|
|Blaming Mama-D for a new obsession!|
|See what I mean?!? So pwetty!|
|Result? A new polka-dot bag!|
|Sainsbury student meal ticket.|
How I wish Malaysia has this too.
|I love it here! Check out the shelves in Sainsbury!|
|Cakes! Keeping you calm.|
|Cakes! Web-slinging ones.|
|Cakes! Specially thinking of Mama-D!|
|Cakes! Pretty the cake it was.|
|Cakes! Vrooommm! Vrooommm!|
|Saw this in one of the weekend markets. Cool right?|
|So tempted to get this for someone,|
but the price tag was a wee bit too steep.
Hmmm... that's almost all. Oh! Met up with an old friend while in London!
|Saw hello to Rustam! It's been good seeing you again!|
And one more last one from UJ and his new friend Pillo-Woogs...
I think I will blog about Paris in part 3. This is already too picture-heavy. And I did not put a day-to-day summary!
