LONDON DAY 1-3

I woke up this morning to realize i only have 6 more days in London. Not very excited to go back home because this place is beautiful. Well i know i can't extend it too cus it's too expensive here.

Everyday we take the train and that alone costs around SGD$12/day. I heard the cabs are super expensive and my boyfriend said "don't even think about it" so yeah, I'm pretty sure it costs over SGD$100 for a cab ride. So yeah, we had to lug our luggages from the airport to the apartment. Up and down the stairs cus there isn't a lift at the tubes. Thank God my bf's family's friend owns a beautiful apartment here in Knightsbridge so we need not spend much on lodging. It costs average SGD$200/night for a simple hotel (like Hotel 81 standard) in London! It'll be crazy if we had to spend on lodging for 10 nights.

Oh and food...food is so expensive! We spend around SGD$30/meal. AT LEAST. A cup of coffee is around SGD$8? Yesterday i bought a yummy cupcake for SGD$8. However, i am enjoying the food despite the scary prices.

The weather is super cold and everyday i look soooo crappy. Lol. I cannot be bothered to dress nicely and am more concerned about how many layers i can wear. Weather is around 2-8 Degrees!

Imma let the pictures do the talking now...




Took a bus to Bicester Village. It is where all the Outlets (branded stuff at a Sale price) are located at.














The stuff at Prada were insanely cheap! The queue was insanely long though :( I went in, saw a bag i liked and decided to walk to the other brands to check out the stuff. When i went back, the queue was soooo long i decided not to get the bag alr. What a pity cus the bag was only SGD$1000 and i saw it retailing at $2.5k in Sgp!






Celine was disappointing cus i didnt see anything nice at all :(




Super hot and yummy beef stew!! Was really good. Need the recipe!!!





After Bicester Village, we went back to London!




Four Seasons restaurant for Duck. Everyone told me to try this so i decided to!


Best Duck EVAARRR. It has a lot of meat!!!! The gravy was so tasty. The rest of the dishes were so-so only though, nothing fantastic. Only the duck amazed me.




































National History Museum

Lighted up Harrods at night.






United Nude store at Knightsbridge. So tempted to get myself a pair! Love the shoes.


MMM for H&M on 15th! So going back there to see what i can bring home hehehe.




Bought tickets for a the lion king musical! So excited to watch it tomorrow night.

Had the biggest lobster in my life!




SGD$40 burger...yummy but for $40?!


Gigantic Claw


Claw as big as my face! It was SOOOO good :)


Price of the lobster (we ordered the 1st two lobsters!)




Visited the National Portrait Museum












The Hummingbird Bakery for cupcakes!


One of the best red velvet cupcakes I've ever tasted.


Oxford Street for shopping!




My favorite store in London, Primark. Everything is super cheap! The amount of stuff i bought from Primark is pretty mad!





That's all for Day 1-3 in London!

Will update this space again soon. :)

Hope you enjoyed looking at the pictures!

Time for bed now. Nighty nights. X

  3. I miss the UK! The last time I went to Bicester Village, I didn't have to queue to go inside Prada. How it has changed over time. Maybe they have new stock which probably explains it.

    You might want to go to H&M REALLYYYYY EARLY. I'm not sure how crazy it would be in London. I went to Lanvin x H&M back in Birmingham, they had people queuing up the night before. You would most probably see lots of asians. hehe.

    Have lots of fun in London! I enjoyed reading your post. Brings back fond memories. :) xx

    1. Lucky u!! I wanted to get so many things from prada but walked out with only a wallet first cus i wanted to see the other brands. However when i went back, the queue was just crazy so i ended up not getting the stuff i wanted :( H&M X MMM's launch wasn't as packed as i expected it to be! Surprisingly! :)

  7. i stayed in london for six months earlier this year and it truly is amazing :) here are some recommendations!
    1) Hawksmoor at Seven Dials Covent Garden for best steaks
    2) Matilda and Singing in the Rain for best musicals
    3) Lola's Red Velvet cupcake (you can find them in Harrods or Oxford Street Topshop :))
    4) The Breakfast Club for all day superb breakfast!!!
    5) Along Oxford Street near Selfridges, you would find this waffle stand that sells the best belgium waffles EVER.
    6) You should check out Portobello Market on Saturday Morning if you can!
    7) Borough Market near Tower Bridge for best eats :)

    Have a great trip! I love London. And taking the bus is a little less pricey than the train! London is amazing on foot too :)

  10. 10 nights in London alone is insane and waste of time. You should went south to Paris to north up to Scotland to spend some days.

  14. Hey, I read some of your posts and yeah, I have to regret and say I was one of those who would judge you based on your tattoos and appearance. But I've learnt not to, because it's really unfair to judge someone without knowing what they had gone through in life. It's already tough to be alive today, everybody should be proud of themselves for coming this far and think positive, be it our judgement on people or anything else. Just wanna say Jia You to you, all the best to your future endeavours & of course ohsofickle :) I may not have patronized you before but I really do like the style and affordable pricing of your shop.

    And the hello kitty with the furry hat is soo cute! I'm gonna go to london soon, so it's nice to hear from you about the place. I'm predicting i'll spend hours in Primark ;)

    Have fun, in london or anywhere else :)
