Life in London is slowly taking shape.
Our air shipment has approved. We are all adjusted to the timezone, no more waking up at 3am. We are all starting to love the nice cool summer. We are even getting used to paying £12 for a plate of fried rice!!! I still remember when we first went to the supermarket, J and I couldn't stop our exclamations over the prices here!
Now, we've stop the mental currency convertion, and that kindda help us get by with little less stress. So much about climatisation!!!
Amidst the high cost of living here, we still managed to find some good buys. Like the pair of Clarks that I pick up last weekend. My cheapest Clarks, ever!
When it comes to sightseeing in a new city, 1 cost saving tip thing I learnt from my mum is to just board a bus, and let the bus take it anywhere. Alight when you feel like it, and continue the journey as you wish.
It is certainly far cheaper than taking the tourist bus tour. I paid £1.20 (with oyster card, a stored-value travel card in London or £2 if paying cash) per trip. If i had gone with the guided Big Bus Tour, I would be £26 poorer!
There are quite a few really impressive buildings that we came by:
Can't remember the name. Anyone?
Natural History Museum
Of course, there's also House of Parliament which is such an imposing architect.
My work place is just next to London Eye, I took this pix on a quiet cloudy morning before the tourists flock here:
J also start to try his hand at cooking. This is the first meal he has made in his life. It's instant noodle cooked, drained and served with fried egg and fried sausage.
Sheen was astonished that dad can cook, and gave him 2 thumbs up! Way to go, J!
