London Is Cracking & Bob’s Your Uncle! p.1

Murni & Big Ben Tower

Hello duckies. If you haven’t been following me on twitter, you might have missed my very sudden announcement of a short trip to London about two weeks ago. Yup, the hubby & I were in London, freezing our tropical tushies off. The decision to go was so sudden (as per usual for us if you haven't already noticed) that I didn’t have time to post a little something on the blog to explain my absence, much less time to even buy warm winter clothing & pack! So sorry to have left you folks without a peep… was tempted to write a short “hello from London” post but by the time the hubby & I were done gallivanting around town for the day, all I wanted to do was snuggle under the covers with a hot water bottle & try to regain feeling in my hands & feet. Yeah, I hate the cold.

Despite the initial rush (& cold), the hubby & I had a lovely time in London. As it was the hubby’s first time in London, we went to most of the major landmarks including Buckingham Palace, Houses of Parliament & Big Ben, London Eye, St. Paul’s Cathedral & notably spent a whole day at the Tower of London (which we think is well worth the 23 pounds + 4 pounds for the audio guide per person if you’re interested in English history like us). We also got to experience the thrills of Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park, shopped a little & ate our way through Portobello Road & Sunday Up Market, visited Greenwich to soak in the history of England, spent a whole afternoon at the Churchill War Rooms & went back to Liberty multiple times (not really to shop but to ogle) amongst many other things.

Between the hubby & I, I think we easily took over a thousand shots but I won’t bore you with all of them… just a couple here & a couple more at the next post then probably a little more at the next few other posts if you’re not bored to death of them yet. Hehe. Here you go… (Do scroll over the pictures to get a little description & check out Part 2, 3 & 4 if you haven’t already)
