It’s our last day in Europe :(

Mom made us a full English breakfast for lunch.

# – Complete with black pudding…so delicious.

I was really sad. We had such a wonderful time, we didn’t want to go come home to Malaysia.

But we had to.

After lunch, we drove back to London, specifically Heathrow. Dropped off Fresh Milk, our rented car which had served us so well during our trip.

Before we knew, we were in Heathrow Airport. Claimed tax refund for all the shopping we did and had a nice dinner in Cafe Rouge.

Finally got to eat my duck confit, of all places in a french restaurant in an airport in London. It was really good though.

While q-ing up to check-in, a flight supervisor approached us and offered to give us exit row seats because she noticed Gareth’s height. We were so pleased!!!

Now that’s service for you, bet things like this don’t happen in KLIA.

We did a bit of shopping to use up our British pounds. I got a travel makeup set from Lancome because finally found one with colours and stuff I like.

# – No excuse to look like shit now.

Then we flew. Flight was comfortable and felt fast. Sitting next to a skinny guy that didn’t smell weird probably helped. I had good flying fortune for this trip, our journey there I sat next to a skinny guy who didn’t smell weird too.

And then we were back in KL. Ate bak kut teh in Kepong for dinner.

20th day of #KimGarethEurotrip

Thankfully remembered to take picture on this day. Taken outside mom-in-law’s house.

# – My schizo getup.

Top from Bazarro. Shorts from Bangkok. Shoes from Onitsuka Tiger. Sunglasses from Religion.

We visited Aunt Christine and Uncle Ken in Birmingham. Aunt Chris made us a delicious lunch!

# – Yummies!
image

It was nice catching up with Aunt Chris, Uncle Ken, Deb and Gracie the Alsation!

After that we visited Gareth’s friend Chiu who owns the chinese takeaway, Wing Sing. Chiu’s family was from Vietnam.

We saw his mom and wife and 2 cute daughters. It was quite funny, his mom who has mild dementia kept telling me that England’s great and that we should move there so that they have more chinese friends and also that I should have 5 babies. Hahahhahahahahhaha.

I didn’t take any picture cause I didn’t want to seem weird. Wish I did.

Then we went home. Me and mom-in-law made Gareth baked scones hehe.

My husband actually makes really good scones. I have blogged about it here.

# – Good hubby and son.
image

We ate the scones with mom’s homemade strawberry jam and store bought clotted cream. None of those nasty fake whipped cream we get in Malaysia.

That was our dinner basically. By midnight we were hankering for a good kebab. We couldn’t miss Worcester Kebab, it is the best kebab in the world in my opinion. I last had it 6 years ago and I never forgot it.

We’ve had kebabs in Paris, London, Australia, Malaysia too but none, and I mean none come close to the awesomeness of Worcester Kebab.

# – Worcester Kebab.
image

The portion is just ridiculous. The meat so juicy and succulent with the special sauce. Packed with lettuce and jullienced carrots as well as pickled chillies. All served on a soft, fluffy thin bread. Hot damn…

# – Miss it so much!
image

Bad picture, sorry but you can’t take an elegant picture of Worcester Kebab.

After a good nom, we hit the sack.

19th day of #KimGarethEurotrip

This is a cheat because I totally forgot to take picture on this day. Namely cause I was feeling crappy our holiday was ending soon and it was our day in so I was dressed a bit too comfortably.

Hence the delay in posting all my posts for the past week. FML.

This is a reenactment of what I wore lol.

# – Reenactment number 1.

T-shirt’s and shorts origin unknown….

========

It’s our day in after an intense day before at Alton Towers.

We hung around at home with mom and chilled.

# – Simple bacon and eggs for lunch by mom. Oh so delicious!
image

We really didn’t do anything so I started taking pictures of my mom-in-law’s house, which is decorated really eccletically.

Love the house, just full of characters!

# – The kitchen window.

# – Ornaments and glasses.

# – Dining table.

Then we ordered dinner from chinese takeaway called Wing Sing, which is owned by Gareth’s friend.

# – Yummy yum yum dindin.
image

We had crispy aromatic duck, chop suey, noodles, chips and curry, spare ribs, salt & pepper squid and hot & sour soup. Too much food lol.

Then I started packing a little bit and went to bed.
