London – trip #2
Ok, so this is a SUPER late update on London – trip #2 (Oct. 22–24). I will try and upload more pics as well..and i still have to blog London – trip #3 (Oct. 29–31)...don't worry i'll get to it…eventually! hehe..
This past weekend, we went down to London again. London is a great city…i know i know..i keep saying that. Sorry to sound like a broken record. We took the 6:50pm train on friday but it was delayed for about 20 mins. Anyway, that night we went clubbing at this place called Funky Buddah in Mayfair (upper Berkley St.). We got there at about 11:30pm b/c we had the hardest time getting a cab. They were all full w/ ppl. and when we finally got one, there was traffic (of course). Anyway, it was pretty fun…there were 12 of us and we left at about 3am. Me and Suef were staying w/ Bird, Caryn, Yvonne and Brenda at their place in Holburn. We cabbed it back and were totally craving food. So, we thought pizza would be good and we couldn't find a pizza number though the entire cab ride. Even the cabbie was trying to help us. But as we got near the flat we saw that Chicken Cottage (like a KFC) was still open so, Yvonne and Suef went to get food while i had to take care of Caryn b/c she was so gone and had to puke. Anyway, she ended up puking right outside the flat on the street (yummmm…NOT..haha). She felt much better after that so that was good and then we went up to the flat. Then Suef and Yvonne came back w/ the food. They got 2 boxes of chicken, fries, chicken burger, chicken nuggets and pop… sooooooooo goood. We were starved and pigging out like crazy and after that we ate chocolate too! we were quite the gong show…laughing at everything and anything and just having good ol' girl talk! Anyway, while we were pigging out we were trying to make sure that everyone else got home alright. Bird was with Yuet Fen and her bf in the middle of Piccadily Circus and Yuet Fen was puking so they couldn't get a cab to take them home. Dom and Charm (Charm is her nick name…I think her chinese name is Hui Woon) were at some other corner of a street and she was puking too so they couldn't get a cab as well. Chris and Wei Ling got a cab and Wei got dropped off at her place but she didn't have her keys to get into her flat so she slept in the hallway until Yan came back from having supper in China town to let her in….pooor thing…hehe. Finally, at about 4:30am (i think it was) Bird finally arrives home and the way she got home was by getting a TRI SHAW (like you know those pedi-cabs in Victoria that they pedal you around in with you sitting in the back and them on bicycles)!!! ahaha…tooo funny. It was quite an amusing night..definitely. We finally crashed at 6am i think….
The next day I met up w/ my auntie (mom's sis). I went to her new flat which is along the River Thames facing the Parliament buildings. It's a very nice place. We went to china town for dinner and had lobster noodles…yum. The next day we had dim sum at Royal China where we had to wait for approx. 40 mins for a table! (It's quite funny how i never eat dim sum at home where there are like 100 restuarants to choose from but eat it over here!) Anyway, i had dim sum w/ my auntie, my cousin (Pooi Theng…Tracy is her english name) and her 3 friends. After dim sum, walked around Oxford Circus and then headed back to the flat and got ready to head back to Warwick. The train was packed so, me and suef rode in the 1st class coach of the train…it's not anything special really…just bigger seats.
Well, that's all i'm going to update for now…super tired..going to bed…
