Project Alpha: London Part II

Part Advertorial Part Photolog

A zillion more photos from Day 3 and 4 of my London trip with Project Alpha!!



Camwhore shot first



Gloucester square again... We have to walk past it everyday to get to the tube!



Me in crazy thick tights and awesome fur hat that saved my ears from hypothermia.


With Niki, Jojo and Mike at a bus stop waiting for Boss Ming to join us to visit the London Eye + Big Ben!







After a long walk, we SORTA reached the London eye!



Totally artsy camwhoring shot of half of Niki and Mike walking towards me



The men behind the scenes... Check out the cameras also decked in winter wear!


There's Big Ben (or the clock tower that houses big ben or whatever) and some parliament house.

I don't care if it's some world famous thingy... I'm just so NOT interested in boring buildings! No offence to Londoners, I'm also not interested in Singapore's buildings so yeah.

Only if they are pink!



More scenery shots to please the men reading this



London Eye looking remarkably like the Singapore Flyer... Both are... boring.


Mike was literally hopping around with excitement coz he likes "views" and kept asking me to snap shots of him with the monuments. Boo!



Everyone taking shots so I also take lor...





Niki and I





"I can haz no face."








Finally!

Done with London Eye and Big Ben so with those out of the way Ming brought us to Borough Market, which I am WAY more interested in!! It's so cool!


It's like a gigantic food market... It is said that the ingredients here are really fresh and good and even Jamie Oliver shops here! I might have got that info wrong (my memory very bad nowadays) so don't quote me.



"Mulled wine" sounds like something Hogwarts people drink





It was SO crowded and soon we lost half of the crew...









Have u ever seen so many types of mushroom?!

And then we reached this store which Ming recommends especially to the Malaysians coz they sell MALAYSIAN CURRY!!!!!!!



Here's Thai seafood green curry... Looks delicious or what?



And here is mine!!



Mike nomming


Ming nomming... What can I say? Pigging out on piping hot curry on a hot winter's day is MAD AWESOME!!!



This store was hanging REAL dead birds!!!

I dunno man if this were in Singapore there would be flies all over the birds man... Just that it was so bloody cold...


Eeeks!

Next Ming recommended scallops cooked fresh and served on a shell!







FUCKING GOOD but also crazy expensive.
Still worth it I think!



Niki warming his frozen hands on these heaters shattered around the market.
What a nice touch!









Mike doing touristy poses again.

And next... My favourite spot in London!!!



Camden Market!

This place is so quirky and got loads of shit for you to buy!!! A lot of really punk/emo/goth looking young people were walking around... It wasn't unusual to see people with really high green mohawks or pink hair!!

Didn't take much photos inside coz I was busy shopping...





Kissing along Camden...



And we go back to the hotel to get a quick rest! Sick of being fucking cold and uncomfortable, I put on my warmest, frumpiest clothes to watch WICKED!!!


YES MING BROUGHT US ALL TICKETS TO WATCH THE BEST MUSICAL EVER!

Actually I haven't watched many musicals lah but of all that I have watched this is the best!!


Felt a bit paiseh coz everyone else there was sorta dressed nicely for the occasion but WHATEVER LAH! So cold dress up simi sai! Girls were wearing translucent stockings with HEELS lor! I don't know what their skins are made of, maybe styrofoam.

(Balenciaga inspired bag from Camden Market at $40 sgd!)

Damn good thing I wore my warmest clothes too coz we couldn't get a cab back after that!! The guys actually suggested WALKING back to the hotel (no more tube) and I almost cried in objection man. No f-ing way!! It was sub human conditions!!

Luckily we found a back alley cab company in the end. Phew!



And here is the stage and set...
Crazily elaborate... The dragon roars!!

(I heard it cost millions to build but once again don't trust my info)

And it was so goooooooooood!!


Thanks so much Ming!! I can now memorize all the lyrics in Popular and I like to sing it to traumatize Mike. :D


Half time camwhoring break... Ming asked "How do you like it?" and I was so stupid and answered "I love it but the ending is so abrupt!" and he said "Erm it's the half time only."

Blonde.

And after the musical we went to Chinatown to eat famous Lobster noodles!! Wow can you believe all these awesomeness in one day?

FOOODDDD



Lobster mee





SO MUCH GOOD FOODDDDDDDDDDDD!!
