Arriving on an overnight flight, I literally had a whole day to explore London. I took the Heathrow Express train to Paddington Station, dropped my bags, and headed out. I grabbed some breakfast and then went to Kensington Gardens and Palace. Although it was raining, I had a great walk and saw some beautiful fountains, buildings and plants.

The palace was amazing. They had signage to guide you on four different paths – the King’s apartment, the Queen’s closet, the life of Queen Victoria, and the Queen’s quarters. I took a selfie of Queen Victoria and I outside the castle. The dresses and accessories pictured were worn by different queens and princesses. The stairway is the entrance to the King’s apartment.

After walking about 10 miles, I was starting to tucker out and had to navigate the tube. After being awake for 36 hours, I was feeling victorious when I actually arrived near Harrods. The photo down the street has Harrods on the right with all of the British flags. Wandering through the iconic store was also like a museum. Every high-end designer had it’s own little shrine and people were buying like crazy.

After checking into my room, and fully unpacking, I relaxed for a bit and made a reservation at Satay House. A short walk from my hotel, this Malaysian restaurant was a hit for me. The decor was primarily flower impressions in the walls and a bouquet of beautiful flowers next to the kitchen. I had a Sirap Limau (rose syrup and fresh lime juice), the vegetarian satay and the Mee Goreng Sayur. Everything was delicious and I ate until I was stuffed and headed back to the hotel. Time for sleep, thanks for stopping by!
