Ding Dong

On the way from work - Big Ben chimes, just for you London lovers out there:

And then I went to the bar at the Curzon Soho cinema where I met up with a few bloggy peeps I know.


Speaking of which, Pandy and I met up for dinner in London - with Reading nowhere in sight. We ate lots of yummy dim sum and sushi at Ikkyusan (recommended) - in fact, Pandy had her first sushi, helped by the fact that salmon is not as fishy as some others.

Yay! I've been there before.. :) Hopefully someday will be able to be there again...

Ikkyusan? There's a famous japanese cartoon series... about a little monk, very funny movie, you gotta see it!

Salmon? Yummy. My dad just feeds me the same crappy rice & lamb morsels day in and day out.

Can I go out and dine with you next time? Afterwards maybe you can even give me a belly rub? I'll purr for you!

Cool! I think I saw Big Ben as a child. Perhaps I should visit again now that I'm an adult. :)

Big Ben is cool! :)

Glad about the non fishy sushi. It really does make all the difference.

Selba - hehe, Ikkyusan, really?


Amit - Bloggy peeps = people who also blog. :P


LB - The sky was just as blue today, it's amazing.


Jia Li - :) Yep


Lulu - I give a good belly rub, and buy lots of salmon. You can come visit me in London and I'll spoil you.


Beenzzz - absolutely, yes of course.


Amy - one day, when you grow up, you will ;)


ML - I like fishy sushi, but I think salmon is good for first timers because they are more likely to have eaten smoked salmon, which is the same only with a smokey taste!


Minstrel - I wish I could have caught it without all the tourist voices.
