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.

The washroom was annoying though.  The fan turns on automatically when we turn on the lights and it was very noisy.  Since there were no hallway lights, we had to turn the lights in the washroom on when we sleep.  We didn’t bother to complain since we only stayed for 3 days until our next destination.

lt was late in the evening, so you didn’t see much people on the street.

Our first meal in London was at Mother Mash.  They served traditional British food which was what I wanted.

After dinner, we went for cocktails at Sketch.  My youngest sister, Elaine, said that she HAD TO see this cutesy, pink washrooms.  It did not disappoint.  Look at the egg-shaped pods, they are actually washroom stalls, which is pretty cool!

Needless to say, this place is very instagram-worthy.

The Underground or aka the tube is the easiest way to get around.  In my opinion, I think London’s subway station is second to Hong Kong in terms of navigation.  It’s very easy and straightforward.

The next morning we went to Harrods.  It’s my favourite department store, you can easily spend the whole day there but obviously, our favourite department is the food hall.

Just look at the staff uniforms =)

But of course, like any high-end luxury department stores, food was not cheap.

Preview of my next post:  London attractions.  First stop:  Big Ben

We did a few boomerang shots during this trip.  If you like, I can post more.  Let me know and thank you for reading!
