Nissin Spicy Beef Noodle Flavour
I bought an extra packet in case I liked the flavour. I did. So I will be eating this again. ^_^
Forgot to take note of the price. Always do. It’s 42p in the market’s Chinese shop.
Wonder if Nissin could just export more flavours to us!
Guest Post: Food in the Bermuda (Pictures from Mr ÆðelgarYellowcloak)
So, here he is at the White Horse Pub, he started off showing me a pic of a cherry coke, with an actual cherry on top. ^_^
A rib eye steak came with that, which didn’t seem too foreign… US$32.95. Exp.
This is Bangers and Mash which I replied back and said “This is not unique”. But what restaurant in England would serve bangers and mash these days… hmmm. Interesting thought. US$18.95. Exp too.
This was his pudding… ice cream with chocolate sauce and cream!
Next (I think this was around dinner time) he showed me a Toad in the Hole dish… ¬_¬ It’s basically sausages in a Yorkshire pudding. LOL! Ok, I don’t see this often. US$19.95.
What is this? He said it was Cheesy Chicken. ¬_¬ Looks like curry chicken. US$19.95.
Burger Pizza at the Swinn Inn came up the next day! This isn’t a unique dish from Bermuda!!! It cost him US$17. Expensive.
This is KFC food… OMG! No price stated.
On this day he said “I’ve got sunburnt feet and legs from a kayak trip this morning…”. His friend had the Aberdeen Angus Strip Steak… Mr ÆðelgarYellowcloak… this food is getting boring… US$26.
But then I got this pic of Pam Fried Red Hind… Looks yummy! US$33.
Chocolate Terrine. US$7½ ($7.50 I think he meant).
Next he had fish and chips priced at US$22.95!
WTH!! I had fish and chips that day too but that only cost me £4 something!! Bermuda has expensive dishes!
Beef Brisket in a Yorkie. No price stated. Wonder what the British would have nicknamed that…
And finally Pulled pork priced at US$10.25. Looks yummy, but the Americans would have made it cheaper!
Cadbury Dairy Milk Medley
Chocolate bar is so-so. :p
B.A.P Live On Earth 2016 World Tour London Awake @ The Coronet, Elephant and Castle
Crochet Bag, Little Sweetie Dress, a Bib AND a Sleeveless Cardigan
Miss Pinky also mentioned she needed more cardigans, so I attempted this pattern which said it would take 2 and half hours, but it took me 5 and a half hours!!!! It’s such a pretty cardi. ^_^
Spring is almost coming to an end, so happy I took a picture of this before the stormy weather on Monday. Happy British Summer!! Rain, rain and more rain to come methinks.
Bigbe Chicken 喜噠噠 (Now called Good Friend 好朋友) – London China Town
The hike with Miss Money consisted of talking politics, travelling and food!
Address: 10 Little Newport Street, London WC2H 7JJ
This is the new location… it’s a few doors down from the original shop.
Box Hill National Park – The Butterfly Walk
Make a right as soon as you see the sign, and follow the railings.
After a few minutes you’ll reach the river.
1. With your back towards the food servery, turn left past the Learning Space and take the track, past the vehicle barrier, by the wood edge that leads down slope, past the Old Fort. Stay on this broad stoney track as it runs along the bottom of a steep grassy bank on your left, and above mixed woodland.
Once you see these ruins, walk to the right hand side and then straight.
You’ll get to this hill top. Just don’t walk straight down the hill, as you’ll miss the point on your right which unfortunately happened to us! So we had to walk back up the hill… so stressful.
Don’t go this way… walk back the hill you go!
2. Turn right down first set of steps, that run down through a belt of yew woodland, cross stile and continue down steps on to steep north-facing chalk grassland slope. Follow path into the bottom of the valley, to the right of the horseshoe bend in the road.
After going down and then up the hill we found the steps! (So make sure you steer yourself to the left at the top of the hill. Go down the stairs and then turn right.
We were a bit confused with the sheep track in step 3, but don’t go up this hill.
3. Bear left and uphill along the sheep track just above the road bend, and follow this track as it ambles gently upslope. Follow it to the end, above the next horseshoe bend, coming out on to the road via a short set of steps.
Follow this track which swerves to the left. This part is an easy walk, I seemed to walk fast at this part… Miss Money asked me why am I walking so fast!
After this track you will see a few steps, we were out of breath, so took a short break. >_<"
4. Cross Zig-Zag Hill road, bearing slightly to the left and aiming for another short set of steps leading into another downland paddock. This paddock is worth exploring, but your exit path is in the top left-hand corner – the broad path leading through light woodland to The Tower.
5. Near The Tower (a folly), turn right down a narrow path through woodland. Carry on down this path, bearing slightly left and avoiding turns to the right. Carry on down a set of steps near the bottom of the wooded slope, that leads into an area of open grassland in Juniper Bottom.
6. Turn right on to the vehicle track in Juniper Bottom. Follow this all the way along and up this narrow valley with steep wooded sides and flowery grassland glades. The path steadily climbs into woodland.
Juniper Bottom is down below!
And this is the open grassland they were talking about!! Once you get to the bottom, turn right, and walk, walk and walk!!!!!!!
It started raining… I found that walking backwards helped too. ^_^
7. Near the woodland summit, at a glade where five paths meet, by a large yew tree, turn first right at this staggered cross rides. Follow this track, over a cross rides, back towards the car park, shop, toilets and servery. The last part of this path is part of the Children’s Play Trail.
The final instruction was to find the Yew Tree… and then turn first right… Miss Money and I had to search on the Internet because we didn’t know what a yew tree looked like. Oh dear…
Note: If you plan to take this hike make sure you wear suitable shoes, bring food and water and just be prepared for what the weather might be like on the day.
We were very lucky to be out on a cool day.

John Smith’s Golden Ale Poster Ad – "… for the Modern Male"
Crowne Plaza London – The City Hotel @ London Blackfriars
Finally our tour (showcase) started…
Here I’m just taking a random picture as I usually do…
Here is Chef Alessandro talking through the products they cook and produce. Quality stuff.
We got to try out the sample foods too…
|Could not hear anything from below!|
|Need to have a go at this… but I already sleep well at nights|
I didn’t realise you could have a globe inside a hotel room!
At this point we had more food!
This was tasty, not over-spiced nor too salty…not overly greasey too. Not like a Chinese takeaway.
The fried noodles were good, had enough spice in it. Because it sat there for a little while it lost a little of it’s crunch texture. But nevertheless it tasted good.
Haven’t had one of these flower teas for a while but always enjoy looking at these.
Next stop was the Conference Floor!
The basement is “The Place To Meet”!
It was time to go, my tummy was calling to eat a bit more because of all the alcohol I had that night.
