London 2017 (Part Two)

This is my second time to London.  The first time I went with my husband was back in 2001.  I don’t remember exactly where we went, except it was raining a lot.  Also, we were on a tour so we went to all the touristy places but I don’t remember if I had a good meal then.  You would know how it feels if any of you have been on a tour especially a Chinese tour, which means we ate a lot of Chinese food. =)

This is the famous Big Ben, which is actually the nickname of the Great Bell inside Westminster’s iconic clock tower.

Westminster Abbey – beautiful Gothic-style Church also where Prince William and Kate Middleton got married.

The iconic red telephone booth – Did you know that it’s actually very filthy inside?  I’m pretty sure no one uses them anymore.

Buckingham Palace – As you can tell, both my sisters are 2 inches taller than me.  Why is the oldest sibling always the shortest? ;)

London 2017 (Part One)

I love travelling (minus the flight).  Seriously, I can never sleep and there’s nothing better to do than to watch movies.  Aside from that, seeing the world is so fun!

After I came back from LA.  I literally left after 2 days in town.  Lucky I’m those type who already packed way before.  Talking about packing, both my sisters claimed that I brought everything except the kitchen sink.  LMAO.  I’m the notorious over-packer.  What can I say?  I love clothes.  I love fashion.  Honestly, I packed enough clothes that can potentially last me for 3 months.  I consider this as a good habit, there are certain times I’m glad I bought those extra clothing especially undies. ;)

I tried to dress a little better when I travel.  It lifts my spirit and who knows, I might have a chance of an upgrade. ;)

We flew on British Airways and it was not as comfortable as I thought.  Knowing me, food is an important factor.  The meals at BA sucks.  Lucky we bought some extra snacks to fight the hunger.

We stayed at an Airbnb in London.  The apartment was spacious with a huge kitchen (which unfortunately we didn’t utilize).  We had plenty of room to put our stuff.  Although I wish the beds were more comfortable.

Last Bit of LA

I know my travel posts are primarily about food but honestly, there’s not much to photograph in Los Angeles.  Don’t get me wrong, I love taking pictures of architecture, landscapes, and people but nothing interesting on this trip.  Hope you enjoy this post and see you in my next post on Europe (I promise you there will be more action).

Visited my good friend in LA.  He lost a tremendous amount of weight.  Well, sh*t happens right?

We went to Sugarfish for lunch.  I’ve always wanted to try this restaurant since they have really good reviews.  Perhaps my expectations are high, I wasn’t blown away with the sushi but the quality was decent though.  I actually thought the handrolls at KazuNori were a lot tastier.

This fish was quite buttery though.

J&T Wedding

My purpose on this trip was to attend my cousin’s wedding.  I love weddings.  It feels so good to listen to two people pledging their love for each other.  Just like labours, every wedding is different.  The wedding was held at the Colony House in Anaheim.  It’s a beautiful venue with high ceilings, brick walls, a fireplace, and an exquisite succulent wall.

They are so cute together!  Joyce is very petite like maybe 5 feet which makes her even more adorable.

The Broad

I absolutely love museums.  Actually, I love arts in general.  When my sister asked if I was interested in visiting a contemporary museum in LA, I jumped at it.  I know that I will be visiting more historical museums in Europe so this is a good time to visit a modern one.

The Broad was pretty amazing.  Short and sweet I would say.  It only has two floors of modern art including conceptual art which was good enough for us.  Although admission is free, you should reserve tickets in advance to avoid any disappointment.

The Broad (rhymes with road) is right in downtown, LA.

Jeff Koons – Bouquet of Tulips

Get used to these three faces – you will see a lot of them in my Europe posts =)

Barbara Kruger – Untitled (“Your body is a battleground”), 1989

Robert Therrien – Under the Table

We had so much fun posing with these humongous chairs and table.
