London, when we arrived

After the 2 hours Eurostar journey, we finally reached London!! :D

random photos in the airport, our tour members were busy grabbing the SIM card as its really cheap to call back to Malaysia, I heard its like 30-40cent per minute!


London Chinatown!! ahh finally something closer to us ;)

night view here, lots of chinese restaurants, as well as a Malaysian restaurant called Rasa Sayang, felt so homey ;)


another random shot


red telephone booth everywhere, newspapers here are free for everyone!


Hilton, the hotel we stayed at London, checked in that night and called it a day ;)


the hotel room, toiletries from Crabtree & Evelyn, not bad eh?


early morning, it was even colder here in London compared to Paris, brrr.....


thanks hubby for snapping these photos


double decker buses everywhere, so convenient! and thats hubby posing with a Bentley car


continue to the sightseeing tour, we went to the Big Ben


and the London eye, which consists of 32 egg-shaped capsules. I was told by the tour guide that some people chose to propose to their partner in the wheel, how romantic! the whole wheel spin is about 1 hour

us with the London eye behind


we also visited Westminster Abbey, a place to honor the soldiers who fought and die for the country


alot of cards with the soldiers' names


yours truly
