We try....

London is nice.....when it's not raining!! But it has been raining a lot. so the camera rarely leaves home, hence not much pictures.

From the little pictures we have, here a picture of our temporary room with Michelle & Martin, really small but nice & cosy, they have been really really really good hosts....and to think of them letting people she just met once into their home, they're just so generous.


the streets of Acton, a bit wet....actually a lot wet. rains damn a lot!!

So we ventured around town, went for a tryout at Starbucks (heheh....can get free coffee if i really work there!!), then went exploring around town.

Ended up in Victoria tube station to submit application to Pret A Manger (better here, got nice sandwiches to eat!! HAHHAH), and then found Wicked!! outside. We'll probably catch this since we're not working and have time on our hands at the moment.


Then we walked and walked and walked and ended up at Buckingham Palace, but got no changing of guards in the afternoons (yeah, it was 4pm and already dark) during winter. So must go back again lor....

so must be a little touristy and get a picture with Buckingham Palace in the background....



and a picture of the statues assess....


and the tube station...


This is gross but....don't know why, but ever since in London, there seems to be excess amount of nose shit produced!! hahhaha......so it's true what they say, London air is polluted..... hahahhah

Then we went to the famous duck place in Bayswater. Everyone who has been to London before has been raving about this place and everyone insists that we try it out. And yes, it's true, it's reaaaaaaaaallly good!! Beats Sunrise in Seapark hands down!!


We still can get asian food, at a premium of coz. But so far, we've been to this cheap pub where u can get 2 main meals for £7, value!! plus 2 pints of ale and beer, only comes up to £10. if don't convert, it's damn cheap!! but if you convert the pints, it's still cheaper than Brussels in Jaya One and it's not watered down!!
