    Great Service


    They serve all you can eat/drink; fresh toast, jam, cereal, milk, orange juice & coffee. Their breakfast room is kinda small so you might have to wait a little bit for a seat. Great service, they gave us a small suite with sofa, fridge, plates & utensils for double price room.

    You get what you pay for


    For the price that we paid for this hotel, we get a decent accomodation with a private bathroom.

    The room is small but clean, the bathroom is clean, it's got television and telephone, and there is no charge for using the phone for a toll free number. They cleaned our room everyday and we got clean towels everyday. The staffs are friendly and helpful. The breakfast area is cozy. We got a free breakfast in the morning which consist of toast with butter and jelly, breakfast cereal, milk, coffee, and orange juice.

    There is no air condition in the room, so we have to open the window to cool off the room. The trouble came when it started to rain which happens a lot in London. The rain would come in through the open window, but if we close the window, the room could become rather warm.

    The location is not too great especially in the evening. It is not recommended for a woman traveller to walk alone at night around this area. But it is relatively close to a train station where many tube lines stop. It's about 10 minute walk from the hotel to the King Cross Station.

Back to Harrods on the Duchamp hunt where we saw the memorial to Princess Diana and Dodi. Back to the room to get ready for dinner in Soho in the highly recommended restaurant Yuatcha which provided probably the best meal of our stay in London. Miss you lots and love you more! Mum ...

    ... br> My role is to help the Project Managers deliver the campaign that the client wants. It could be creating a website, buying media (ad space) to promote the website, organising on campus activities, creating videos.

    I think the next three months will be a very exciting and interesting time and in a way I see it as a nod to the degree I started in 2008 and the dreams I began with.

Onward we went to the Tower of London, well known spot of the home of the Crown Jewels (which, unfortunately, we did not see) as well as beheading of wife of Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn and assorted others. The boys went up on the Tower Bridge, while Grandma stayed behind to take their photo from below. Since my feet ...

Something that today you treat with an injection in the butt of good old penicillin. We decided to head home earlier tonight, via M&S to get dinner. Had a quiet evening at home watching the soccer or the back of our eyeballs! I won't tell you who was doing what :) Anyway the sun has just gone down - 9:45 pm - and it s bed time. Until ...

    So today I had the fabulous chance to see Emma Stone, Andrew Garfield, and Jamie Foxx at the Spider-Man 2 World Premiere in Leicester Square! I admit that I have never seen Spider-Man (remember, I can't sit through movies!) but seeing them walk down the red carpet just exhilirated my little starstruck heart :) I mean, who wouldn't want to gaze at Andrew Garfield's absolutely adorable face all up close and personal?
