It breaks my heart to type this but my time in London has come to an end for the time being. I will be moving back to Singapore, starting a new exciting project (I can't wait to share more details soon!) and travelling more extensively around Asia I hope! My pal Faiyaz and I recently went around London shooting this little collaboration with Charles & Keith. I thought that since this would be my last time shooting a project in London for awhile, it would be best to relive some of my favourite moments I've had in London. So I hope you guys will follow me, in my shoes, and relive these moments with me. Big thank you to Charles & Keith for sending so many pairs of shoes, I feel like I've a lifetime of shoes to wear now! And to my dear Faiyaz for going around London with me in a day to shoot these. I had so much fun even though it was bittersweet. London, you always will have my heart. Thanks for some of the best times of my life.
Brunch at my favourite spots in East London followed by shopping for some of the freshest groceries. This is at The Albion. Definitely needs no introduction. The food is great, fresh and not forgetting how much I ADORE the croissants.
I love exploring new neighbourhoods in London. There is always some little corner or stretch of houses I find that never fail to make me smile. It's so romantic to me how even though I've travelled to London and lived there for a good amount of time that it still surprises me. West London is great for that. You find cute families going about their daily lives, peeping through the windows of their homes and trying to pretend you live in there.
The grass IS greener at this side of the world. I love going for picnics, feeding birds, seeing people taking their strolls with their dogs or simply by themselves, rolling on the grass. I've had so many good moments being surrounded by my friends in parks all over London where we just lie on the grass with a bag full of food to stuff our faces with and talk for hours.
I am always on the go in London. There is always a place to run off to, This city is relentless and full of energy. So here's to screaming at Ubers for them to pick me, running from tube to tube, hopping onto a cab and hoping the meter mysteriously stops or just running to my next destination.
There's no denying that I've had some of the best nights out in this city- Soho of course. Drinking way too many cocktails before dinner time and ending up in some club dancing the night away with my best friends, singing all the way home on the Uber. London, you're the best.
There is so much more I've yet to share but these are some of those worth reliving for now. Hope you all enjoyed this!
