weekend home in london.

the end of the first semester is quickly drawing to a close and i type this, i just realised i haven't blogged much at all about my second year of uni. it is different to say the least. for one, the work load is nearly double of last year, and living with 6 other people in a house is not easy particularly when you have a bad landlord and no one likes cleaning.

anyhow, i got the chance to be back home for the second time this semester. i remember last year i was back to london within 2 weeks of starting uni, but i've only managed to visit twice these last couple of months! i guess work and this new house just got the better of me. and as much i love and miss my family a lot, i'm not as home sick anymore.

i arrived on friday evening, and by saturday morning my parents were keen to take me out for lunch in kingston. we explored the christmas market then ate at a japanese-korean restaurant which served sushi and korean bbq. and lucky for us, they were also doing 50% off promotion as they are a new restaurant, so we got the chance to try out a lot of their funky dishes and desserts.

we started off with a selection of their sushis - which, by the way, were very very tasty. bombdigalicious.

as a side to our korean bbq, we got an eel dish served with veg.

our meal then ended with some dessert - we got their coconut ice cream served in a coconut shell and a selection of black sesame and green tea ice cream mochis.

simply yumbo jumbo. i love that asian desserts are light and not too sweet. i swoon over anything green tea too, so this dessert sealed the deal for me.

we walked off our full bellies along the riverside and admired the sunset and red skies. it was actually freezing that evening, so we didn't spend that long outside.

we popped into this cute tea shop on the high street which sold amazing looking teapots and teacups (wayyyy out of my price range too). after sniffing some tea, we popped into the christmas markets to snag some christmas gifts for our relatives including a chocolate paintbrush which looked too real to be edible!

i love that i was able to dive into the christmas spirit with my family. i mean, that's what christmas is all about right!
