Off to London we went, on 15th Sept via Air Asia X. =D
and surely she knew i was snapping a picture of her?
hmmm ... i guess she was confident enough that she looked good for my camera! hehe.
(we pre-booked our meals, of course! and can you believe it, we didn't bring enough snacks for us when we were hungry mid-way our journey!)
the view was utterly amazing ... i think we were flying over Pakistan.
it made me miss Village Park's nasi lemak!
we landed at London's Stanstead at around 730pm and it took us about an hour to get through UK Borders (immigration). the queue was once again, notoriously long.

mushroom, yummmm. ;)
the mini ice cream rolls caught our eye on the menu so despite being stuffed, we HAD to order it.
of course, we were in shock when it came: it was small!!!!
BUT really nice! loved it!
Overall, Kura is just one of those restaurants part of the Rakuzen group or something. so so on taste. slightly more pricey compared to Rakuzen. i really need to find a better japanese restaurant for my sashimi cravings.

it's so much fun to run with a group to start together, run together, finish together, and have breakfast together - but we couldn't join them for breakfast as we had other plans. there will be a next time!
looking forward to our next run with them, although an uphill finish is not what we had in mind. my muscles are still aching from it ... and that's what i meant by buns of steel, my bum muscles hurt! (let's hope i'll have a smaller butt when this is all over!)
YB is tired of me sleeping, talking, eating and breathing FMT* on a daily basis. i tell him that hey, 4 months, ok, FOUR MONTHS to train for it is not even enough for us, especially when we KNOW we will get tired of being disciplined, the lack of rest during the weekends and the possibility of not clocking the requisite mileage for the week.
seriously, it's rather strange to be so focused on the FMT when i should be focusing on something else. tsk tsk. but i worry so much about failing my first ever marathon (IF it happens, since seasoned runners say you need to clock in more half marathons before you're comfortable to run a full) with cramps and blisters and lack of stamina and strength, this and that ... oh, and looking good for the paparazzi (hehe) ... so many worries keep floating around in my mind that in order to overcome it, i need to keep on running/training to appease some of my fears.
well, that's my way of dealing with it, i guess.
and having said all that, i have been wanting to do a 20km run but nooooo, i don't know when it's going to happen! *seriously bummed to the max*
i'm not even allowed to bring my running shoes on our holidays!! i'm so bummed!! i'm going to end up being FAT from all the glorious food. =(

at RM7.50 / RM8.50 for a bowl of fried fish head or steamed fish pieces noodles, there was no option for you to choose fried fish head AND fish paste noodles. you had to add the fish paste to your bowl, for an extra price, of course.
i certainly didn't expect the price to be RM3.00 for ... 3 pieces of fish paste. -____-
verdict? it was just ok. only go there when you're desperate for fish head noodles and some air conditioning!
YB likes it, and i was OK with just 3 bites. it didn't blow me away, nope, not my cuppa. their cream holds a few red beans and if you're lucky, you will taste them in your few mouthfuls.
it needs more red bean in the cream!
price per slice: RM6.50

i couldn't help but to laugh at him, cos he was looking so silly: one ear up and the other one flopped down. hehehe. i wished i had my camera so i could have zoomed in on him. =)
