leeds meets london.

last week, i had the pleasure of taking my friends lorraine, jess and carla, from leeds around london. unfortunately, it was yet again a rainy day so we had to make alternate plans to our day at the olympic park in stratford. our first stop was at the british museum, at which i snapped this beautiful shot of the architecture.

after wandering around for some time, we got hungry and stopped by chinatown, to this cute restaurant selling the best xiao long bars, which are technically steamed dumplings with the most gorgeous soup inside of them. we got the waiter to take a polaroid for us, but unfortunately it was blurred :( oh wells, better luck next time!

after some hearty food, we decided to explore london on foot and headed towards covent garden where we saw this magnificent display of white balloons covering the ceiling. it was absolutely breathtaking, and coupled with the sweet sound of classical music, the atmosphere was absolutely britishly perfect.

for dinner, the girls suggested belgo. i hadn't been before, but after visiting once, i'm sure i will return again in the near future! they specialise in selling mussels which taste so sooo good. we ended up ordering a pot each and devoured it with sides of chips and laughter.

the night ended with a classic amorino gelato and lots of hyperness as we headed home. what can i say, we had a blast, and i can't wait for these girls to take me round leeds when i get the chance to visit!
