27 Apr 2018 – Hello Family&Friends In London & Oslo
Tue – appreciations to Yasmine for meeting me@GatwickAirport after 1+hr delay from SIN on a full uneventful 14hrs flight and another 45min thru’ immigration. Feeling my age after such a journey, but then what’s there to complain about when the choice to travel was and has been my own decision? So this is merely a statement and observation which will be quickly forgotten when I see my family&friends who make these trips all worth the while.
Good of cousin Yat-Soon, Helen, Merla&Mei to manage to take time in middle of their busy week to meet and tkx for yummy dinner and nice wine@CouscousDarma.
Glad to connect the family here for niece Yasmine and her second cousins, Merla&Mei.
Wed: thank you Yasmine&Andrew for putting me up in their lovely English home. Sorry to have missed Andrew who is away for work.
Refreshing 5mins walk to the train station passing by a Wimbledon Theater – must tell Yasmine to see this play 🙂 No time for pubbing this time round 🙂 🙂
The British Rail never disappoint me – on time and efficient, £12.80 S$22 single ride from Wimbledon-GatwickAirport
Spring is in the air with April showers – a breezy walk up to the plane when the rains started after boarding. 2hrs flight and arr on schedule into OSL, surprised! no immigration line.
Getting into OsloS earlier than expected after 20mins on the AirportX NOK180 S$30 for seniors and a RT ticket. Am back in paradise after a hug from #6…
Thu: time to take care of banking. Beautiful spring walk with the flowers blooming and birds chirping merrily, a feast to both ears&eyes. Passing by NRK Norsk rikskringkasting – (Norwegian TV&radio broadcasting station) heading towards Majorstuen. Try to take different routes to know the area better.
My favourite grocery@Jacobs and could not resist all this seafood, especially at discounted price and what a celebration it will be as the seafood have to be consumed by this weekend.
Got a box of the edible flowers and beautiful as they are, tasted bitter on its own. Will try with a mixed salad+dressing and see how the taste differs. Thought of TingTing in SIN who sells edible flowers – different kind, but hers taste sweeter than these.
Shopping@Home&Cottage CC Vest which was giving away stuffed-bags to their members. Bought this salad dressing made with all the natural ingredients and looking forward to tasting it. These trees on the pavement look like trolls without their leafs, can imagine the scene in the cold misty winter snow…
Fri: TGIF – B/W 1933 Colosseum Kino pix by HC Christoffersen and today the coloured pix by me. Built in 1928, is the largest cinema in Northern Europe and the largest THX cinema in the world. It is distinguished by its large spherical dome. Now pix taken yesterday. Looking much forward to playing with #6.
You’re never too old to play, just too old for low-rise jeans 🙂
