One thing that I really dislike about London is that you always seem to have to queue. Because it is so crowded everywhere ! On our second day in London all we did was eat, and shop. For a good 10 hours straight. Maybe I should do a London haul video ? We went from Covent Garden to Oxford Circus and the streets were so crowded, it was basically impossible to hurry and walk fast. So if you come to London on a weekend, and want to go shopping on Oxford Circus, don't think you will be able to do a quick shopping spree. It will take a while, but it will be worth it. For lunch we had dim sum at some place in Chinatown, which wasn't even the best dim sum restaurant around, because we tried to avoid a long queue, but we still had to wait for like 15-20 minutes. Places are small, and dim sum craving people on a Saturday are plenty. For dinner we had Japanese, which was rather disappointing. We were super exhausted from shopping, and my Katsu Curry was not hot. As in, it's been standing around in the kitchen for a while, and is not hot anymore. I was so exhausted, I didn't even bother to complain though. Who says shopping isn't tiring ? I felt like I had run a marathon when I got home. That's not when my day ended though. I even managed to bring up enough energy to go clubbing afterwards ! It was Nga's sister Nhung's birthday party, and I really couldn't miss out on that one ! In the end I was glad I went, because I had so much fun. I might as well post photos of that night in the next entry !
That day I also got to met Kim from Chocolate on Cashmere the very first time, and we spent the whole day together ! It was such a pleasure, she's such a funny and nice girl, and soooo skinny. You might think Iam tall for a Vietnamese girl at 1,70m, but she is even taller than me ! And skinnier.
Also special thanks to Van Anh from Chopstick Panorama for hosting me and my friend Nomin once again ! Van Anh is seriously one of the funniest and most honest girls I know. Gotta love her.
That's it, from my second day in London. I would love to go back soon. I love London so much, it is such a big city, but feels so cozy and fuzzy, I love that ! It is crowded, yes, but that's why you get the big city feeling. If you love silence and a relaxed atmosphere, cities as London might not be your cup of tea.
