Ipoh Trainstation (1935, Arthur Benison Hubback) and City Hall
Liz came to visit me for the weekend, it was short but sweet. The rare occasion indulging in Nasi Lemak for breakfast, before my flight later that evening
Londoners had to suffer through a 48 hour Tube strike that started on Tuesday night, almost all tube lines in central London were closed. The horrible wet weather dramatized the situation and a long day at uni was worse! A change to the mundane mood of a Wednesday was a lovely dinner at my friend’s flat. Although I had to endure a long and crowded bus trip to hers.
Food- She prepared a delicious, comforting meals of steak pie, oven roasted vegetables and mushrooms- just what we needed! As usual, I was the last to finish, scavenging on the last few bits of each dish. Homemade sticky date-toffee pudding with vanilla ice cream, was the highlight of my meal, it was really such a treat for a windy winter’s night. It wasn’t anybody’s birthday, incase you were wondering about the pudding with the sparkler- it was just for shits and giggles! And I got a good picture out of it! Oh, and the drink is a tasty mix of ginger ale and grenadine juice, plus the berries.
The evening continued with a game of Cards Against Humanity. It really is a game for ‘horrible people’. Some of our creations were hilarious and some, just offensive. Take a look at the pictures! It was all good fun and a great evening of mid-week ‘madness’!
Late dinner at Mandarin Kitchen, Bayswater. Wait wasn’t too long compared to the hour long wait on my previous visit. It’s the Chinese New Year and a big meal was in order- for prosperity ( of course!). It was predominantly a seafood dinner- razor clams, soft shell crab and the delicious lobster noodles.
Some shots of the circle line train (it’s new!) and you have to love the retro seats.
Just a last thought- the silly fortune cookie’s fortune does not make sense!
