London

9th JULY 2009

In the morning,we touched down on London Heathrow Airport. Then we took underground to get to the hotel.We took a 15mins walk with our lugguages to reach UMI hotel.Unfortunately we were too early cus we could only check in during the afternoon.The hotel provided us a luggage room to place our backpacks.After that we went to scout for our brunch.We went to an empty mall which is something like our bukit jambul but 10x better in condition.We walked around and then we decided to have taiwan cuisine which is called cha cha moon i guess.Coincidently,the waitress tht served us is from Kuala Lumpur.So she recommended the dish which could suit our M'sian taste!Next we went to Marks n Spencer to grab some cheap breakfast for tommorow n tommorow n tommorow.Then we headed back to the hotel to check in.

Then we were told tht we will be checked in at another apartment which is located 15mins drive away n we were provided free taxi ride.Then we checked in that apartment.The apartment has 2 bed rooms 1 kitchen n 2 toilets.Well quite a good condition tho minus the dust.After a 30mins rest we planned to visit madame tussaud wax museum.We took abt 25mins walk to reach thr.Cousin is great,she planned well n booked the ticket in advance so we were like VIPs without having to queue.NGEK NGEK NGEK.The museum is divided into many different categories eg; celebrities,cartoons,GHOST HOUSE(swt),politicians and genius.

After the museum we headed to chinatown to have dinner.We took abt 40mins walk to reach.We had Peking duck rice!We ate hastily as cous have already bought the ticket for Grease Theatre Show at 7pm.Luckily we could make it on time!The show was awesome!I love it!There were good n pretty actors!The show finished abt 9.30pm.When i came out from the theatre i was shocked with the weather.It is so bright it was like our 7pm only n it was cold like hell even during summer!Then we walked back to our apartment to have a good night.

GOOD MORNING~!!!We woke up, got ready n had sandwiches n cereal tht we bought yesterday.Without wasting time we took another 15mins walk to underground station and took the train to Tower Bridge Area.

We den decided to visit the Historic Royal Palace. Its a very very big castle.Inside there were the london guards, well dressed and was telling the history of this old building.Also they had a FAT CROW CAGE.I guess the crows in the past were super fat n big!'torng u can die'After the visit to the castle we had lunch at a place called WAGAMAMA.It provides Fusion cuisine. Unfortunately their original taste is not thr,all we can taste is ajinomoto n maggie mee's perencah.LOL..anyways it still tastes nice.Later we travelled to Tower bridge n walked around. Next, we went to London bridge.It is actually quite a long distance.At tht time we were enjoying our walks with cool n sunny weather.

Next we viewed Buckingham Palace.It was summer so theres something called Changing of Guards Ceremony.The parade did not last long.Then we walked around n we met some cute little tiny squirrel.I fed them chocolate chips instead of walnuts!hahahha..but then the pigeon will scare the squirrel away from the food...damn...There was an old man bringing a packet of walnut for them.They're so lovely till can climb on the old man's lap.I noticed once they got their food they wont eat it, they went and kept it on a tree.

In the afternoon we planned to visit Benjamin Franklin Museum.Unfortunately we were told tht the tour will start at 3pm.So we went for our lunch at a western cafe.Well,the Benjamin Franklin Museum is not an ordinary museum tht we see.The museum is like a small house.Inside theres a lady who dress like queen with her over-PONG dress play the role of the character n narratated as she took us from 1 room to another.Overall i feel its quite boring.LOL..but something special.

After that we walked to Harrods at Knightbridge Area.Harrods is a place with shopping malls selling branded things.Fortunately when we we were thr,summer sale was on!COOL GREAT EXCELLENT BRAVO!!!Everything is so cheap for them but not us~!zzzzz...when u convert u start to heartache d!LOL..but when i went to the perfume stall i was shocked with the price(which is quite cheap).of course i wouldnt let go of this chance!muahahaha..

Later on we went to meet shannon's cousin,Marcus at a pub.Came along with my aunty who stays in London.Later we decided to have our dinner at the steak rib house.Then back to the apartment n rest early for tomorrow~!!!!
