Today I’m blogging about my London trip in early May! 😀 My family went over to attend and celebrate my 2nd sister’s graduation from Imperial College! 🙂
So my family stayed at Ibis hotel, Shepherd’s Bush branch. I think it’s a good and convenient place to stay, as its less than 5 minutes walk from the tube station. 🙂
My angel & elder sister chilling in our room. We really enjoyed chilling in London, after my final semester from school and her taking a respite from her busy work schedule.
The TV area and mirror.
Upclose picture of the room, beds and table area.
Toilet! The door has no twist knob, it’s just push and pull and makes a mighty bang noise whenever you open or close the door, haha!
Cool looking app Sleep Art app where it supposedly makes art when you place it on your bed at night when you sleep, but it hanged when I used it twice. HAHA.
DAY 1 ! 😀
Hello good morning ya’ll! 🙂
View of St Paul’s cathedral from the outside.
We came to the Millennium bridge, walking from St Paul’s towards my favourite London museum, Tate. It’s the one with the long chimney looking structure. 🙂 It’s my favourite because it has soo many amazing art works from Pop Art to Surrealist Art, artworks and artists which I read and studied about from my JC days! <3 We didn’t have time for me to pop in this time. I visited it the last time I was there about 3 years ago.
View from the bridge, over River Thames. It’s beautiful.
So the first day we went shopping with my sister to get her stuff ready for her graduation.
We bought cosmetics, I got this Maybelline Colorsensational lipstick in 902 Fuschia Flash. It’s a hot pink colour. I love it!
London, the land of Topshop!
Then we came to the market and saw cool stuff.
Like refillable wine. hahaha.
Then we came to South Kensington, or affectionately called South Ken by the locals.
To have lunch at Comptoir, for fantastic lebanese food! Someone should bring this to Singapore. 🙂
My lovely sisters.:D
My Mamee and Papa. 😀
My eggplant dish!
We came to Selfridges…
Where people in love with fashion come, where people come and fall in love with fashion. It’s fantastic inside, looks more like a modern fashion museum, but I don’t think photos were allowed. Go visit when you are there. Or better, shop if you can afford. 😀
They have really cool and awesome, attractive window displays.
MY LITTLE PONIES! I WANT. <3
More windows! And a black london cab!
In the morning we passed by cool places and sights.
Like this wooden gate that opens into a secret garden. Not that it does, or maybe it does but I won’t know because I didn’t get to enter. 😛
And like pretty flowers!
We headed to Brighton village & market row to check out Honest burgers for lunch!
Menu on the walls.
With trees that are flowering in spring. 🙂 Family shot! My dad, sisters and my mum. <3
Cute dog riding in style!
We came to the park…
The view is amazing, Like a work of art. <3
Family pic! With me taking the photo. Kekeke.
We came to the Queen’s garden.
And a scene out of a painting with a little cute girl running across the park. <3
We came to Stratsford city, wanting to visit the Olympic park….. but *deng deng deng* it was closed. >.<
We had lunch, fish & chips at the mall. It was so-so. :/
We checked out Primark! We love it. It super cheap lah. But ok, sustainably wise, it might not be a good thing to buy so many cheap clothes and maybe at the cost of some labour issues. BUT still. Cheap clothes. HAHA. Ok. moving on.
After a non-Olympic park morning and just walking around Westfield Mall at Stratford city, my parents and 2nd sister headed back while my sister and I went shopping! At Oxford Street and Bond street! Yippee!
Oh yes, I love the sensibility of British fashion.Eh forgot what this brand is, sorry! 😛
Me and the “wrong” side of Star Wars trooper. HAHA. This was at Hamleys! Famous toy shop. 🙂 Umm ok a little description of what I am wearing. Jacket and shoes from HK, you also saw during my Japan trip. Socks from Uniqlo, Japan. Don’t think it sells in Singapore cause they are long thick socks. I’ve been searching for them for ages until I found them in Japan, yay! Chambray top and red leather skirt from Bugis street, Singapore. Purple cardi from Mango. 😀 I love this look and it’s not something I can wear in Singapore. So I like to be dressy and layer while I can abroad. I was also wearing nude coloured stockings so I won’t get too cold incase the weather turned chilly or when the wind blew.
Weather actually turned pretty warm while we were window shopping… and Tea-shopping. My sister bought lots of Whitard tea back as souvenirs! Heh. Anyways here I am posing with the billboards but the bus came and yes I do look like I’m having a 1 million pound moment HAHAHA.
