London calling

This picture was taken at KLIA. Don’t know why I looked so pale. Maybe something to do with being awake for over 24 hours.

Dressed for 13 hours flight.

# – Looking ahead.

Fuzzy top was thrifted. My regular harem pants from Nichii. Hoodie from Puma. Bags from Samsonite and Louis Vuitton. Sandals from Ipanema Gisele Bundchen.

=========

Blogging from London now, where beer is cheaper than ice-cream.

We took the A380 for the first time…I was more worried than usual during the take-off as my mind couldn’t comprehend how such a large aircraft could lift off into the sky.

But it did, luckily.

# – The gigantic A380 wing.

We are staying in the Seven Sisters area, about 20 minutes to Central London by tube. Our accommodation is actually the back portion of an art gallery. Pretty damn cool.

We had kebab for dinner.  And now I am in bed trying not to fall asleep… though I am fighting a losing battle.

River cruise

Here’s a break from my usual mirror. Wore this to Damien & Amy’s wedding dinner.

# – Legs crossed.

# – Legs apart.

# – Legs hidden.

# – Legs not hidden.

The dress is from H&M. Gold stilettos from Payless Shoes, clutch bought in Bangkok. Watch is my favourite Tough Solar G-Shock, which was a birthday present to myself many years ago.

# – My clutch with a peacock.

==============

After Damien and Amy’s wedding, someone suggested to go on the Melaka River Cruise, which is near the Stadhuys. Since the hubs and I have never been on it, we decided to go for it.

# – Damien and Amy <3

We didn’t carpool so ended up at different jetty points. There were like 3 or 4.

There were some difficulties trying to pinpoint where everyone was. KY in particular was very helpful with his “We are at the jetty in front of this large red building”.

At last, after walking for a bit, we found the rest of the group. They had been trying to stop a boat to get on by waving from a jetty, kind of like hailing a taxi? There’s a signboard that actually said you could do that.

Anyway, one particular boatman signalled to us to go further up (or down? I wouldn’t know) along the river instead, so we started walking.

And ended up where hubs and I were before. Also found out that we needed to buy tickets to get on the cruise, not stop it by waving lol

Lucky for us, we just made it! We were the very last passengers to get on the river cruise.

What an adventure! Hahaha.

The ticket was RM10 for local and RM15 for foreigner. The price is actually quite okay because it’s a pretty long cruise (45 minutes). That said, maybe it felt long cause there was a kid with a toy cat that wouldn’t stop meowing. WTF parents?

# – River cruise!

Contrary to belief, the river was not smelly. The water’s not crystal clear though so we tried our best to avoid stray spray.

# – Under a rainbow bridge.

It’s really nice to see the improvement they’ve done to Melaka river. So much cleaner and so many beautiful murals on the walls of the buildings located along the river. Nice ambient lightings too!

# – Kim on a river cruise.

Would be cool if they could do something like that to Klang River :D

My kiddie pool

Casual Friday! Put on a dress that’s a tad too sheer in sunlight, so put on leggings too. The key is comfort.

# – Arm down.

# – Arm up.

# – Close-up.

Got the dress from a flea market, probably pre-loved…I’m not too sure. As you have probably noticed, I have no qualms wearing hand-me-downs. Coz you know, I’m ghetto like that.

I think clothings from a certain time in the past have better quality, better fabric you know…more breathable. Stuff these days are pretty but oh my gawd, RM400 for something made entirely out of polyester? WTF?

Hard to find stuff made out of natural fabric nowadays without costing and arm and a leg :(

I’ve put this particular dress through the spinner like a gazillion times and not a single bead has come off. Pretty amazing coz the beading looks quite delicate.

# – Beads around the neck.

# – Beads on the trunk.

Some time ago, I bought a kiddie pool. I also bought an inflatable monkey chair. I didn’t know what use I’d have of them but I knew they would come in handy one day.

I brought the monkey chair to my hen’s night, which turned out to be a hit – because it was just so hilarious to use.

For one, it was impossible to sit on without flipping over head first into water.

# – Epitome of elegance.

But eventually we figured out a way to sit on it stably.

# – Victorious.

As for the kiddie pool….I toyed with the idea of having a ghetto pool party. However, traipsing around in a bikini in full sight of my neighbours didn’t seem like such a great idea.

Anyway, the sun was out today so I decided to give our scuba diving gear a good soak to dissolve all the salt deposits.

While mulling over how to do it quickly and effectively, I was struck by a stroke of genius.

Of course! My kiddie pool!

# – Victorious version 2.

Now the husband can’t say I’m spending too much on stupid things.
