#19 : borough market.

life has been so busy lately that i've only got time now to post about my birthday 2 weeks ago!
18 has been an amazing year and in particular, i have found myself to have really grown up and mature as an individual, as well as learning to take hold of my independence starting uni. my experiences from this year has been the most fruitful, and of course i can't forget that this is the year i met my loklok.

for my birthday, i decided to keep it quite simple by visiting borough market in london bridge for lunch and then returning home for a simple birthday dinner with my closest family and friends.
the weather wasn't perfect, but that didn't stop us from having fun!

as per usual, borough market was stocked up with some of the finest (and expensive) fruit and veg, with unusual produce such as purple corn, watermelon radish and blue potatoes.

the overwhelming sight of a healthy rainbows got us getting some fruity smoothies - mango and orange, and grapefruit.

the front of the market was filled with desserts too yummy to resist, however we were determined to get a proper meal first before delighting in the sweets so we walked past it. unfortunately, we didn't return as we became far too full afterwards! :(

for starters, we grabbed some calamari - and lemme tell you, these were FRESH, FLAVOURFUL, and CRISPY. oh yeah. and the sweet chilli sauce was also perfect. we both approved with nodding heads.

the same man that sold us the calamari kept giving us samples of his different curries and rice, so we couldn't resist but get one of his paellas! he was such a bubbly, fun guy and loved getting his photo taken.

after this snap, he gave us a larger box filled to the brim with seafood paella!

despite the paella, we were still on the run for more funky food in the market.

we didn't hesitate to grab a burger, especially when encouraged by this quote:

we stopped by a cute stall which sold burgers at quite a good price, and they also had a nice seating area for you to relax your feet after pondering around the market for an hour.

we got a kangaroo burger to try something exotic, and mannnn did it taste awesome.

tasters are always a must at the market. and after trying some cheese, ice cream, pates and relish, our tummies were satisfied and we took the train home.

man did i conk out from that food coma.

my little nugget also got me these roses. cute.

the second part of my birthday post to come! and here's a hint: avocados are involved!!!!
