Jet lag is something we’ll probably be worried about. I initially were too, mainly cause i don’t know how bad or well I’ll take it. And thankfully, I think it wasn’t as bad as I thought.
After an early night, I woke up at 5am in the morning. The sun rises at about 5ish. When I woke up, the sky looked like 7am in Singapore. I was just tossing on the bed for a bit before washing up at 6ish; my friend woke up pretty early too :)
We headed for an early breakfast at this place called The Corner House. The place was so pretty, coffee and food were so good. And after checking out the webpage, I realized they are beyond just a cafe and restaurant. A lot more to offer so you can check out the webpage.
such cosy space :)
look at those eggs! the food & coffee is really good. I enjoyed it.
Costs about £30 (S$54) altogether.
My pretty friend, Kristie <3

And then the itinerary for the day was then filled with lots of walking,. It’s waking tour by Kristie (haha). We clocked more than 20,000 steps within a day – amazing isn’t it (haha). Anyways, back to the itinerary, my dear friend Kristie, brought me on a London Tour where we covered all the major sites (you know, those places that if you’ve never touched means you’ve never been to London?) Yup, so I covered (i think almost all) within a day.
Just to name a few I can remember :) Leicester Square, Big Ben, Tower Bridge, London Bridge, Trafalgar Square, Horse Guard Palace. While doing my research on London, I also found out there are quite a number of free walking tours available too – so feel free to go check them out.
Lunch was at Borough Market! I really love markets, fresh produce! It would have been great if we had a few more friends with us – so I could actually try more food.
8 Southwark St, London
One of the top recommendations for me would be the Oysters! The oysters were so fresh; ate a half a dozen of the oysters & came back again for it before I flew back to Singapore. It costs about £8 (S$14) for half a dozen.
Richard Haward’s Oysters
along the stretch of Stoney St
It’s opened every day except for Monday & Sunday
I also tried the Paella (£7), Pork sandwich (£6.5) and Raclette (£6).
After lunch, it was more walking – burn off the calories! (Haha)
Kristie brought me to one of her favourite dessert places.
Look at the number of cakes – it was so difficult to choose :/
When we entered the shop, the lily smell was so fragrant; absolutely love fresh flowers. In the end we ordered the white chocolate, a chocolate cake and tea – all for £16 (S$28).
Ended the day off with Shopping at Primark – one place you should put on your shopping list! It is kinda similar to target in Australia :)
We got our dinner from the supermarket at Marks & Spencer. One of my favourite places has got to be the supermarket! We spent about £20 (S$36) for the dinner altogether. Couldn’t finish everything and still get to eat some of the leftovers the next day. I guess one of the best ways to save your money will be to get and prepare your meals from the supermarket – they literally have everything!
Dinner was salad, half-baked chicken, shepherd’s pie, country vegetable soup and red wine – it was delicious & worth the price!
And that’s the end of Part 2, also my day 2 post! :)
