Slept for about an hour due to last minute work stuff, and woke up at 3AM to get picked up by my parents. We got to the airport around 4pm. Good thing we have access to the lounge :)
With so much stuff to do before leaving, I only got to browse through my e-mails. Good thing, there was free internet, and I got to "chat" with my friend Nikki from London, and found out that I have to print some train tickets to her place. Whew!
On our way to HongKong, we left around 630am
Connecting flight to London at 955am
On our way to the gate
Side note: I brought a lot of maxi dresses. I wanted to try something different this time, and not wear pants for this trip ;)
Good thing the leg room was a bit bigger—it's a 12-hour flight after all
Got to finish the whole season 6 of "How I Met Your Mother"
My dinner: pasta
Who can say no to Haagen-Dazs? :P
Look at the spoon, how cute!
Time to get our luggages
Their taxis are pretty roomy
We got to the Grand Plaza hotel (as recommended by a friend - John). From the outside, we think this looks like the best apartment hotel there is in the area (Bayswater).
We got a free upgrade to a 2-bedroom unit - Yay!
The view from our window.
Got pretty hungry, so we ate at Pret
Bought Evian for our trip tomorrow to Darlington
My brother and I shared a Malteser ice cream stick
What I'm wearing: Forever 21 maxi dress, cotton jacket from Greenhills tiangge and scarf from Esprit
Decided to go back to the room and rest for a bit
Went out for dinner around 9pm at Noodle Oodle. There were LCD screens on the walls for customer use. Look at that, there's Gordon Ramsey. He visited the resto and tried to "pull" noodles (make noodles by pulling them).
Had their dry noodles with minced beef
It's sort of like spaghetti—Chinese version :D
My brother had their noodle soup
While waiting for our bill, we played some games
Spot the Difference hehe...
Off to Darlington tomorrow via train to stay at my childhood friend Nikki's pad
Bought some snacks to keep us from getting hungry on the way ;)
