Notting Hill Gate station! I never watch the movie soooo.... whatever... haha i am just here to spend my last short day in London by going to the portobello market! so here is it!!
just walk down the whole street...
very nice shop with decorations... was actually looking out for nice 2nd hand stuff... but they are either too expensive or too bulky to bring for the early part of my backpack trip.... so never get anything...
But i really love this place... its quiet and not so crowded.. probably its still early...
haha... then u have any customer?
so the whole street is layout in this format... and the red dot represent where are u at now.... nice huh...
cheap cheap vegetables! come and buy!!
they have very nice housing around the estate.... if not they won't have filmed the movie here right!? DUH! haha
so i was rushing back to you cai place and packed my bag as if i am still in army... everything in in 2mins! hahah... so actually i was late for my train to paris... luckily they allow me to take the next train without any extra charges... you just need to SMILE! haha... anyway I thought the train you just board on like tube/metro kind but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO..... u gotta clear the custom... haha forgot that UK is UK... not part of European Union (EU)
so here am i.... in PARIS~!!! BONJOUR~!!! waiting for Igor to pick me up! my first Couchsurfing experience starts here! check out this website http://www.couchsurfing.org/
it's a place where ppl offer to host you and get to know about the other person's country and culture... its soooo awesome... as u all know i hosted many friends from all over the whole... germany, taiwan, japan and all... but i never knew such a website exist till my friends told me about it....
Igor is really nice and we went to do some grocery shopping after i put down my bags... since he is vegan, no eggs n milk! so i went to the kitchen to look at how he prepare his food... we had the vegan tofu patties.. nice! and he has a room mate from HK... so its really nice to meet another asian in paris :)
