Home Food ReviewsLocationEngland London – Day 4 & 5

I’ve been procrastinating when it comes to my travel posts. It’s been almost 5 months since my trip to London and Paris…and I have only blogged about London Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3. *smacks self*

This is going to be a picture loaded post on London Day 4 & 5. You’ve been warned.

Harrods, London

I wanted to go to Harrods because I like checking out the food hall — I can’t afford to eat there though. My brother on the other hand likes Harrods because he loves to shop (he’s really more of a girl than I am!).

Truffle Heaven

I got myself 250gm of duck & figs terrine (£2.95 per 100gm) — it was darn good.

Food Hall

Camwhore shot =P

I wanted a Ploughman’s lunch, but that boy HAD to eat rice…so I took him to Oriental Canteen near South Kensington Tube Station.

Duck Chow Mein

1/2 Roast Duck

Siew Yuk Rice

Huge portions and reasonable prices, no wonder it’s always crowded. A plate of rice with siew yuk was £4.50. And half a roast duck was £8.50. Review on Oriental Canteen HERE. Walked around the area a little bit before heading back to Earls Court to meet some of his friends for drinks.

I got myself an evening snack — a cornish pastry.

The next day, we picked our parents up from Heathrow Airport. Cab fares are ridiculously expensive in London, so the tube is one of the most affordable and convenient option. Come to think of it, I hardly took cabs in the UK…unless the underground is closed or if it’s paid for (part time job claims).

My parents wanted to shop, so my brother suggested Bicester Village, a designer shopping haven. It’s an hour away from central London via Chiltern Railways.

I wasn’t that keen on shopping, so I walked around.

I was the only one who kept taking pictures that day. They were reluctantly dragged into the picture by me!

Mum with her lunch at Pret A Manger. I found the salads horrible, but she thought otherwise. My favourite thing to eat at Pret A Manger is the BLT Sandwich. =D

We spent 6 hours at Bicester Village — I don’t understand how or why my parents and brother can shop for that long. My brother scored two Ralph Lauren t-shirts and a Burberry shirt for £50 each (still ridiculously expensive if you ask me), while my parents bought 5 pairs of shoes EACH, a Salvatore Ferragamo tie (dad), Burberry shirt (dad) and a bag (mum).

Shameless camwhoring

I really wanted this pair of pink heels from Ferragamo, but it’s so expensive! £180 after 70% discount. o_0 I did however score a pair of 7 for All Mankind jeans for £42!! In KL, the same pair cost RM1,399. Good thing my size isn’t very common there, hence the huge discount. Not many jeans flatter my figure, but this brand has the best fit so far. Makes my behind look good. ;-)

We had dinner at Wong Kei, known for its crap food and crappier service. My dad wanted to eat there, but he soon regretted his decision. Read my review on Wong Kei HERE.

We left for Paris the next morning. Will update you all on that soon, promise!
