Christmas, Winter and Sunset

Braved the subzero temperature on Christmas day to take pictures in the woods nearby.

I think it was worth it. Snow fall was the heaviest of the year so far and it is not every weekend i get to see snow still fluffy during Christmas.

Temperature was around -5 degree Celsius. Fingers and toes were numb, even the camera almost give up on me because the battery couldnt withstand subzero temperature.

First time ever seeing a sunset during winter time. It was spectacular.

London Outing

On the day when I was supposed to meet my friend at the airport, I went to London for a little walk in the afternoon. Regent street at Piccadilly station was closed for the entire daytime. Obviously an ideal time to shop around without worrying about traffic.

At covent garden, there were variety of activities going on like the reindeer petting.
A minor of people demonstrating of against animal slaughtering right in front of McD. So I skipped McD for awhile.
Kissing under mistletoe. and it is not free.

Street entertainers?
Giant reindeer tree. It was there last year.. spending cuts I suppose.
Who is more attractive? The one with red nose or gold nose?
Lastly, check out this fella. Very enchanting but its a shame he didn't play the entire song. He seems intimidated when I was recording him.

What a move is that?!

Today, for the first time or perhaps for a long time, I made a peculiar move in my entire life. I don’t know what made me taking such action but I do saw such situation on the movie or drama series. A friend of mine who was going to catch a flight to Malaysia that evening and I was supposed to meet her at the airport without her knowledge as a surprise. Having arrived at the airport prior to her departure time, I was anticipated and sneakily looking out for her. I thought everything was turning out as expected when I spotted her behind her back, but she was with a guy. My heart sank and immediately back off. Later, I texted her to wish her safe journey but didn’t tell her I was there, though I wish I was the last to bid her goodbye in person.

I don’t understand why I could promptly made that move and that kind of feeling inside I was having. Don’t you think this scenario should only take place in the movie? I still couldn’t believe that could occur to me. What is happening to me? Can someone enlighten me?

Early winter

It's only late November but there is already snow falling. Though I still find it beautiful, I am not looking forward or getting as excited like the first time experience. Maybe it always remind me of the downtime I had 2 years ago.

Canterburry Roadtrip

Hired a car for a roadtrip to Canterburry, covering almost the south east of england. Didnt know there were so much things to discover and explore there..
Visited vineyard for the first time and had a wine tasting.

Windmill is so common on this part of England. Perhaps because of strong winds. The winds blew the entire day when i was there, even have to walk slightly tilted front or backward.
