One Perfect Summer Sunday

My regular routine on Sundays is to visit the Fitness First gym at London Bridge, exercise for about an hour and half, before showering and grabbing a worthy lunch at my favorite lunch spot nearby. MoreLondon - the perfect, perfect, lunching haven for me for the past half year with a marvellous, marvellous view of the grand Tower Bridge.


Yesterday was an uncharacteristic warm, sunny day for London. I bought my yummilicious British Mustard Honey Chicken Pasta, a bottle of freshly pressed grape and raspberry juice, 3 cups of my currently-obsessed-with jelly and a large cold samosa from Marks and Spencers. Huge lunch, it was.

I had the pleasure of Belinda for company and she arrived 15 minutes later, after I have been thoroughly grilled by the cheery sunshine.

Me and my favorite lemonade jelly

Us and the Tower Bridge on a fine, fine day!

Since Belinda was such a darling for packing the picnic blanket, we decided to venture nearer to Potter's Field to utilise it.

Don't mind my auntie-looking gym backpack.

We laid the blanket on a suitable patch of grass, with first-class view of the Tower Bridge. It was a surreal experience, lying down on the grass, chatting and looking at the landmark.

I'm one happy camper, for sure!

Ah, summers. :)

Hey YL, glad to see that you're doing well. I thought you were on holiday then realised that it had to be a really long one - so thought otherwise. You living in London now? Are you still with A*Star?
