No Place Like London (Part 1)

I have sailed the world beheld its wonders
From the dardinells to the mountains of Peru
But there's no place like London!


That rhythm really does have its point, which i agreed. I've been there and seen it, and there's no place like London. The name itself is enough to explain the wonders held underneath it. Almost what you can see in the Monopoly ranging from Old Kent Road to Oxford Street, Picaddily Circus to Leicester Square, are available in the famous city.

London is well know for its London Underground. Commonly known as The Tube. Its fast and efficient. No doubt that was my main transportation while in London. Visit this site if you would like to know more.

Upon arrival, i went to Victoria and Albert Museum (or V&A in short). Its said to be the world's largest museum of decorative arts and design, housing a permanent collection of over 4.5 millions objects. It was named after Prince Albert and Queen Victoria, but unfortunately i didnt manage to capture some of the sight to fascinate dear readers.

Chinatown was the next spot which i've gone to, its located beside the Leicester Square. Comparing with the one in Newcastle, this is more like a China-town to me. More of varieties, more of colors, more of people walking along the street, and they even have The Four Season. LOL. However, i found something more tempting among the rest and decided to dine at this restaurant. I present to you, the Leong's Legend!

they dont give us special discount considering...
im also from the Leong's family! Sigh


The food are quite familiar to what i've taken so far in Penang, and the price are reasonable (not refering to the currency conversion from Ringgit Malaysia to British Pound).
