Famous places to visit at London

Continuation of my London trip.....

We went to Windsor Castle on the 2nd last day at London, its the oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world, and also the official residence of Her Majesty the Queen.

10 in the morning, and it was cold!

we need to walk abit to the castle, and I took the chance to snap this photo

dear with the castle at the back

we were given an earphone with audio system which explains the sections of the castle

The Queen was not in the castle during our visit, if she's there, the flag will be different

no photos are allowed in the castle, so took more photos outside to compensate, haha

In the castle, we visited sections like Queen Mary's miniature dolls house, masterpieces of Royal collection, the Drawings gallery, meeting rooms, semi state rooms and so on....

more photos after the castle visit

salute the guard, no expression and must stand still there

more of us~

we managed to see the change of guard which take place at 11am on even numbered days. the guard is so fierce, my friend tried to stand nearer to snap photo and the guard shouted 'Back Off!' =_=

Besides the famous Windsor Castle, we also dropped by the Buckingham palace, which is the official London residence of the British Monarch.
1st, a photo of me with the York flag, haha
we dint visit the palace, only managed to snap photos at its surroundings
hubby and I with Lawrence (top) and uncle Philip (bottom), both good friend of FIL
last photo before we left the palace

Of course, a London trip is not perfect without visiting the famous Tower Bridge.
thats the Tower Bridge behind us, many mistaken its the London Bridge (from the song London bridge is falling down.......) As for London Bridge, its just a normal bridge connecting city of London and Southwark. I dint manage to snap its photo because the view is quite far from here...

we dint experience the walkways, only managed to take photos from here
the bridge lifts hundred of times every year
last but not least, photos of us around the tower bridge area

Just one more post to go, it'll be a brief post of shopping at London ;)


  1. So, where did the Queen go if she wasn't in her castle? I've always thought king and queen live in castle, despite it's 21st century now. Kakaka!

    p/s: How does London bridge look like?

  2. nice photos :) we didn't go to the windsor castle last time. actually i don't even know where it is :D we only went to the the Buckingham palace plus the tower bridge etc. Can't wait to see the shopping posts :D

  3. love the tower bridge photos! It's lovely.

  4. I didn't go to the Windsor Castle, the rest yes... and I totally love Tower of London because of the many exhibitions they have.

    Nice pics. I enjoy reading ur blog and it makes me wanna go London again!!!

  5. Yvonne, hmm, I heard she was in somewhere else that time when we were there...
    London bridge is just a normal looking bridge, haha ;)

    Barb, thanks!
    Windsor castle is quite far from the city.. about 30-40 mins journey I think..

    AngelineBK, yaya, the night view is even nicer!

    YT, hey!
    Yaya, I like Tower of London too~

  6. The castle is really old and what an experience to actually see a real castle...awesome.

    Your pics are so nice...make me wanna go Europe..hehe..but expensive lah.

    Can't wait to see what you bought in London. :)

  7. The Windsor Castle looks really majestic. It looks so ancient, I keep imagining they have knights inside hehe.

    You are lucky to be able to see the change of guards. We went at the wrong timing so missed it.

  8. Mummy Gwen, save enough money now and plan for a trip there la... ;)

    ChloeRuoyi, yes, lots of knives and armours in there! The change of guard is very quick, luckily we waited for them on time ;)

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…
