Can you believe those photos were taken in London?
Beautiful roses in pink, red, yellow, white and so on, the roses garden between the Buckingham Palace and Hyde Park is so colourful and a beautiful place to spend a lazy, sunny afternoon.
At some point we took a break and had our chocolate treat, thats when we observed how the others were enjoying the garden. They were sniffing each rose, saying “wow, this one is even better”… ^_^
We didn’t think of doing that, Larissa and I were just walking around taking photos and videos.
Did I mention how I love roses? This might be one of my most favourite quotes:
“I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.”
It was cold, wet and crowded! However, everyone seemed to be in a pretty good mood.. ^_^
I have to admit, we did not have enough patience to spend too much time outdoors…
So, we watched a disturbing Austrian movie called “Michael” (because it was the only movie that was showing at 6.40 pm when we rushed into the British Film Institute.)
Check out the short and VERY simple edited video clip.. (I didn’t want to take out the camera much in that weather)
That’s how I’ll remember the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee for the rest of my life:
Cold, wet, crowded but still fun. The last bit of our evening was the fun part. Before heading home we went to Udderbelly Festival to have some Pimms and had a good laugh when girls started to dance for us. Oh well, I guess we were all just celebrating the Queen for doing such a great job ^_^
Camden Market in London feels like Dongdaemun in Seoul!! First you think how “dirty” Camden Market is compared to other common tourist places in London, then you begin to realize how colourful, glittery and oh so vintage it is.
After fighting our way all the way to Camden Market (I hate those tunnel, district, road works) we had delicious chicken wraps, mulled cider and super-rich chocolate lollipop brownies.
I was all convinced about Camden Market as soon as I realized it was full of Korean sellers. You will immediately realize which clothes, bags, accessoires come from Korea (and the shop owners will be eating kimbab) ^_-
I went home buying red/black printed leggings and some very large-grey-bunny pullover.
There were so many things I wanted to buy, but I decided to first buy gifts for family and friends, before I start spoiling nobody but myself (insert wise words here).
For example, there were bags with built-it speakers, funky necklaces saying “Aaaaah” or “SMILE”, scary-but-cute winter hats or super-vintagy magnet stickers. They all make perfect gifts, don’t they? A puppy for Christmas would be lovely too…
