I’ve always been quite fascinated with astronomy and I finally got the chance to visit the Greenwich Royal Observatory on this visit to London. It’s relatively easy to get there, we took the DLR to Cutty Sark and walked there. The walk to the gates of the Royal Museums Greenwich is easy. What we didn’t expect was this: According the to route maps there, there … Continue reading Royal Observatory, Greenwich (October 2016) Post Mortem
Another highlight from my recent trip to Europe was a meal at the 3 Michelin starred, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay. I’ve always wanted to have a meal at a Michelin-starred establishment to satisfy my curiosity and tastebuds on what makes them so awesome that they deserve those stars. If you didn’t know, Michelin stars awarded to an establishment is only valid for a year and the status … Continue reading Restaurant Gordon Ramsay Post Mortem (October 2016)
When I was planning the itinerary of Paris on this recent Europe trip, I realised that there wasn’t really anything that I really wanted to see or do in Paris so we decided to do a crazy day trip down to Bayonne to visit a friend who lives around there. It was crazy because it was a 5 hour or so TGV ride one way. … Continue reading Bayonne, France (October 2016) Post Mortem
I recently went on a 10 day trip to London and Paris with my mum and 2 aunts hence the bit of radio silence on the blog. It was a pretty eventful trip and there was drama even before we left the country. LOL. We were on the redeye flight to Heathrow so we were doing last minute packing of the luggage at home when my … Continue reading London and Paris (October 2016) Post Mortem
So after Jamie’s Italian the previous night, I was helping Manfred to finish the pasta he bought: It was nowhere near really but hey, I was pretty awesome improvising. Haha. Anyway, this is pretty much the biggest event on this trip: the Burlesque London Premiere!! With appearances by Cher, Christina Aguilera, Kristen Bell, Cam Gigandet and many more!! From the experience at the TRON: LEGACY … Continue reading [2010.12.13] It’s BURLESQUE!!
Third musical! Well, not really but STOMP was classified as a musical so there. As the matinee only started at 3pm, I decided to take a walk along Regent Street again. I might have missed something that I wanted to buy. You know what I mean? 😉 And here are the sights for the day: At Carnaby Street, I saw Liam Gallengher’s Pretty Green outlet. … Continue reading [2010.12.12] STOMP to Jamie’s Italian!
I decided to watch Love Never Dies simply because of Ramin Karimloo (The Phantom) and it’s an Andrew Lloyd Webber production. Andrew Llyod Webber’s stuff are usually pretty epic so I know I wouldn’t be disappointed. Furthermore, at the press conference for Love Never Dies, I saw Ramin Karimloo sing “Till I Hear You Sing” and it was then that I knew that I HAD TO … Continue reading [2010.12.11] Love Never Dies in Winter Wonderland
So I went to Leicester Square to buy the ticket for Grease. It wasn’t a planned musical but what the hell since it’s so much cheaper than it will be when the tour gets to Singapore and I didn’t have anything planned for the day. In between the time before the show, I went to the National Portrait Gallery: It’s pretty cool although it felt … Continue reading [2010.12.10] Grease is the word!
I made a last minute detour to go see the Emirates Stadium, home of the Arsenal Football Club. I’m not a major BPL fan anymore but I still have a soft spot for Ryan Giggs. :p After that, I went in search of 221B Baker’s Street. Got lost actually. Haha. I walked in the wrong direction for a good 10 minutes before realising that I … Continue reading [2010.12.09] Emirates Stadium, Royal Variety Performance 2010 + Covent Garden
So Manfred managed to score a pair of tickets to the recording of the Top Of The Pops Christmas Special (which will be aired on Christmas Day). He got the tickets for the Coldplay recording. I would have loved to watch the Olly Murs one but it was pretty late actually but whatever, I’ll take whatever I can get. 🙂 I’m not overly fussed. Unless … Continue reading [2010.12.08] Top Of The Pops Christmas Special
