What Happened In ... November 2015

It's crazy that the end of November is fast approaching and December 1st is going to be here before I know it! Pretty sure it's going to creep up on me and everybody else, so before it actually does appear, I thought I'd do a round up of what happened in November 2015 for me~

Travel | Big Buddha | Lantau Island | Hong Kong

One of the most famous attractions in Hong Kong, popular with both locals and tourists alike, is the Big Buddha of Lantau Island. Buddhism is one of the major religions in Hong Kong and China so it comes to no surprise the popularity of this attraction.

Food | Chang's Noodles Restaurant | Hand Pulled Noodles

I watch a lot of YouTube videos and I stumbled across Mike Chen's spin off channel "Strictly Dumpling" and he claims this is THE best noodles to try. Only problem was that Mikey is based in New York and I'm well.. based in London. A quick Google search promoted me towards Bloomsbury way and a stone's throw away from the British Museum is Chang's Noodles. The power of YouTube combined with me being a massive foodie meant I had to try it - for blogging purposes obviously..

Life | British Museum of Food, London | Exhibition

On a wet but not so cold Saturday, I really wanted to visit Tower of London for my birthday but because of the weather, I didn't particular want to spend part of the day outside, and I knew Tower of London has a courtyard or some open space where the Yeoman Guards and ravens are so decided to go with Plan B. Only I didn't have a Plan B. I took to Google, and searched "places to go in London on a rainy day". One click led to another and before I knew it, I was reading an article about a temporary food exhibition near Borough Market called British Museum of Food.

Life | OOTD | Birthday Outfit

Wow, I haven't done an Outfit of the Day (OOTD) post in a while, and forgot to take a full length picture, but hey, ho, here we go! 

Today's post is all about the outfit I wore when I was out in London for the day celebrating my birthday. It was a wet London day (sad times) so priority was all about comfort and staying dry, rather than looking stylish and fashionable! We ended up visiting Borough Market, British Museum of Food (London) and Clink Prison Museum so it was all about being casual :)

Life | Fireworks Night 2015 | #batterseaparkfireworks

It's the eleventh month of the year and November to me is synonymous with fireworks. November being my birthday month (I'm turning 27 in less than a week - eek!), I have always found fireworks that much more special. They're relatively rare to find in London with the main displays around Guy Fawkes' Night and New Year's Eve so when I borrowed the other half's American Express card, before you could say bonfire, the two of us were heading to watch the #batterseaparkfireworks

Travel | Brooklyn Bridge | New York City

Opened in 1883, what was the longest suspension bridge of its time, was opened over the New York East River to serve as a crossing between Manhattan and Brooklyn boroughs of the State of New York. Citizens then knew it as the New York and Brooklyn Bridge, until the name got changed to the East River Bridge. That is until 1915 when it was renamed to the more familiar Brooklyn Bridge we all know it as today. It's an iconic structure of New York and one on the to-do list so my family and I took the time to stroll along it taking in the sights and sounds of New York from the Brooklyn Bridge.
