City Breaks

LONDON

Since my workplace is close to the buildings below, it would be a mistake not to take some night photographs. I used the Guerrillapod to get these shots, which I have to say was rather inconvenient; it's still useful in many ways but I found myself to prefer the classic tripod. 








PARIS

Who doesn't love Disneyland? I grew up watching Disney cartoons; from Mickey mouse and Donald duck to Aladdin, and to see these fellas in front of your eyes, jumping and dancing around, can be a dream come true, even though they are people wearing inflatable costumes. Sorry kids. It might have been childish of me but  after considerable planning and saving some money last month, I decided to go to Disneyland Paris. 
As I got out from my car, it started to pour hailstones. Seriously!! First time in Disneyland and this is how my day starts. And people say British weather is unpredictable? I don't see it any different in Paris. Anyway, after a few minutes, the hailstorm stopped and there I was on the queue to the entrance eagerly excited like a child, but of course I was not showing it. Hahaha. After all I am a responsible adult.

I have to say it sure pulls you back to your childhood as soon as you enter this magical land. All these funky characters and streets solely made just like in the cartoons. Since it was raining, I only had a few chances to take pictures, also because my camera isn't hail insured.










AMSTERDAM

Here I was again in the same streets, the same canal, strolling around to see this so called Amsterdam. Last year I was here with a friend and this year again, I am back since another friend insisted. I feel Amsterdam is like going to central London. Its rather close to the UK and cheap to fly to if planned properly. Well, hope you enjoy these pictures I took; hopefully they are not too similar from the last time.

#foodporn

Although a tad late, a very warm and prosperous New Year to you all. Hope 2015 will bring you happiness and a brighter future. This time of the year is all about contemplating on resolutions and struggling to fulfill them. I wish everyone all the strength to achieve his/her own list.

First post of 2015; unfortunately I do not have much photographs as I am hibernating and pigging out on food in this freezing weather. I hope a lot of you can relate to this! That is why, for now, I hope you can also just indulge on some delicious food pornography! These are from the places I visit most often locally. Do apologise for the quality of the photos as they were taken from my iphone.



                                                  HANDMADE BURGER (Wembley outlet branch)

Who doesn't like burgers? Seriously! I am love them. In fact, I am interested in making my own top 10 burgers list in London. Occasionally I indulge myself on these Handmade burgers, the size of the burgers are to be commended. I think this is the first burger I have ever used cutleries on. Personally, the burger is okay but the Cajun fries and the onion rings together are what makes it soo good,

O BAMBOO (Parisian Thai Restaurant)

The popularity of this place is to be commended as lots of people were queuing for tables. After waiting for half an hour, we finally got a table but then real struggle emerged. The whole menu was in French. Too embarrassed to ask, I just ordered something that sounded familiar and everything became clear to why people were lining. One of the best Thai foods I have ever tasted. My compliments to the chef!!!
