Two Months In.

Almost 2 months in London now. What can I say about this whole experience? I’m glad to say that I’m slowly adapting to life here, but this new environment is constantly throwing new things for me to adapt to. Lately, there’s the daylight saving which ended on 30th October. Suddenly the days seem so short; […]

Porto, Portugal (10th to 15th Nov 2022)

Came back from Porto last night. It’s nice to finally depart and arrive at the same destination as Rui Rui after a holiday somewhere. The Place Porto is a beautiful place, although it seems that they have a graffiti problem. However, I don’t remember seeing anything with hate or obscene symbols or messages; most of […]

White Breath, Fried Rice and DIY Haircut.

After picking up Ah Rui from the nearby station last night, she mentioned that she could see her breath. It was only then I realised that the weather’s getting colder. It didn’t feel any colder though; I didn’t even notice the breath until she talked about it. Made my 2nd batch of Roti Prata last […]

A More Stimulated Mind? Dreamful Nights.

I’ve been in London for exactly 1 month now. For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been dreaming in my sleep a lot more often than I ever have for the past 10 years. Not sure why is that but I’m assuming that it’s because my brain has once again been given more stimulation from […]

I Made Roti Prata.

I’ve been thinking about eating Roti Prata for a while now. It’s something that I can so easily get back at home. A good meal of Roti Prata cost no more than SGD $10, but over here, the only shop that I’ve seen, so far, that has Roti Prata on its menu, is charging people […]

Longest I’ve Ever Been Away From Home

Today was the 14th day that I’ve been here in London. That means this is the longest time I’ve ever been away from home. I never had the luxury or opportunity to take longer period of time off to travel; man got to make a living, you know. Previously when I was here in London, […]

Not Authentic!

For years, Rui Rui has frequent this particular restaurant that sells South-East Asian cuisine. She’s always been telling me about it quite often that she’s brought many South-East Asian friends there and none of them has anything good to say about that. This afternoon, I’ve finally got the chance to eat at that restaurant. We […]

Disappointing Golden Arches.

Had dinner at McDonald’s last night which was also my first visit to the international fast food chain in UK. Boy, it was disappointing! My order was a Quarter Pounder with cheese burger with a side of fries and a cup of coke. While the beef patty was indeed Quarter Pounder sized, it came between […]

I Can Feel the Sun!

Coming from a hot South East Asia country, I couldn’t understand why would anybody flock outside and lie down on the grass when the sun is shining brightly. An hour ago, I was making a trip down to the nearby supermarket and for the first time since I’ve been here in London since 29th September, […]

Bathroom Painted. The Pursue of “Liveability” Continues!

With my trusty paint roller on a pole, I’ve put on the last coating of paint yesterday on the walls and ceiling of the bathroom last afternoon. Now the bathroom is looking pretty good and new… Except for a few hard-to-reach, out-of-sight areas. Nevertheless, the coating of paint I’ve laid on those walls came out […]
