Today main activities was sightseeing. London Eye + River Cruise. I purchased the combination ticket for London Eye and River Cruise from www.citycruises.com
The river cruise route should take us from Westminister to The City and Tower Bridge and lastly to Canary Wharf and Greenwich. and then we could take the cruise back to Westminister.
However, did you remember about the tube strike *cries* it took us ages to arrive to Westminister. We enjoyed the London Eye, and the proceeded with the river cruise from the London Eye pier.
To get from Tower Bridge to Canary Wharf/Greenwich would take us 30 mins. Precious time that we did not have. The original plan was to enjoy the rivercruise till Greenwich then we would take the bus and tube to go back to our Apartment, then straight to King Cross to catch the 7:01pm Eurostar to Paris.
Due to the tube strike, we have no faith with the public transport so we ended our river cruise at Tower Bridge. So that shall give me reason to go back to London since i've never been to Greenwich.
I think we took about 1 and half hour just waiting for the tube. sentap sangat..! and upon arriving at Malaysia Hall, we had our lunch while thinking how to get to King's Cross. Best option would be tube since it was nearing 5pm i.e. peak hours, and getting into cab would mean we would get into traffic.
But, but, but TUBE STRIKE *cries* so we gotta go with the cab option. But there come anothe problem. It would be difficult to get any cab. semua pun busy. So, I finished my late lunch, pray, changed Husna at Malaysia Hall, while Hannan went out for a smoke. Suddenly, he came down to the restaurant and told me that the pakcik that send fresh goods to the Malaysia Hall kitchen would give us a ride! Alhamdulillah. Never thot social smoking is real and could be that helpful.
Indeed, he was really helpful. kalau naik taxi, taxi pun xde masa nak rush to the King Cross. They would take their own sweet time. So, Alhamdulillah that pakcik helped us.
Anyway, Hannan blacklisted London. lol. but, it was just a moment of anger. no worries London. We'll come again. Just look at these great London pictures. Gila tak nak pergi lagi ;p
London River Cruise
would love to come back to London..!
