you need to make time...


"you need to make time" said BF to me today as we met for a quick tea by his house this afternoon. he was referring to how i wished i could have had more free time to see london instead of working until 1:30-2am in the morning. he is right, i should have figured something out....maybe next time. i suppose i could have stayed a couple of extra days...but i wanted to be home. especially since i'm taking off for orlando on friday. it makes me cringe just thinking about it. well, i'll deal with that later.

i landed back in the bay on saturday and have been trying to catch up on sleep, with loved ones, and work ever since.
i wasn't able to blog nearly as much as i thought i was going to. i had next to no free time in london. stolen moments consisted of ducking out to grab a quick bite.....and i manged to find a few gems here and there. one of the gems was a pho stall in a mall of all things....

i walked around the food court and took a peek at what people were eating. this isn't the typical mall food court.


when i saw a few southeast asians with bowls of bun bo hue....i thought, hmmm....maybe i should try that. so i ordered the bun bo hue from the pho stall.....my expectations weren't very high.....



but you know what? despite them using different noodles and not having the right accompaniments....the bun bo hue was actually pretty decent. surprise, surprise. over the next few days, i'll be blogging about the london trip....and i must admit that the food in london has improved DRASTICALLY since the last time i spent significant amount of time there. it was over 12 years ago when i spent quite a bit of time in london and all i wanted to eat was curry....and there was nary a veggie in sight that hadn't been boiled to death. alas, things have changed quite a bit. london has been added to the "cities that the foodie hunter could live in list".
