I picked this book up as part of a three book print-out for Reader’s Digest (you know when you want to read a book from a collection and you end up buying the dregs too)? I wasn’t sure if this was a terrible book or not, but the synopsis was predicting a B- experience.
Under the streets of London there’s a place most people could never even dream of. A city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels, knights in armour and pale girls in black velvet. This is the city of the people who have fallen between the cracks. Richard Mayhew, a young businessman, is going to find outContinue reading “Neil Gaiman – Neverwhere Book Review”
Location: Design Museum 224-238 Kensington High Street, Kensington, London, Greater London, W8 6AG 26 April – 15 September 2019 I had the opportunity to travel to London last weekend and I saw one of the most iconic filmmakers – Stanley Kubrick.
I wanted to see if I can continue reading Jeffrey Archer after the fiasco with Jeffrey Archer – Mightier than the sword and I have mixed thoughts about the latest book I picked up.

Tate Modern is an amazing story of redemption and reinvention. It resides Picasso to Anish Kapoor and Tacita Dean – you name ’em, they’ve got ’em.

The Eye (whose named sponsor changes every couple of years and currently is Coca Cola) also does the same trick as the Eiffel Tower does for Paris, to let people climb above the city and look backContinue reading “Visiting London * Explore the Coca-Cola London Eye”
If you are travelling into London, you can go to the world-famous Madame Tussauds. I bought advance tickets with priority entrance and it cost me a whooping £50! Which I saw was not actually needed at 10:30 in the morning as there was a priority queue bigger than the normal entrance. But I paid soContinue reading “Madame Tussaud’s Star Wars Exhibition”
I went and dished out nearly £45 to see an appalling play. I’m the idiot here. I followed the raving reviews this show got and I got tempted by the beautiful Kit Harrington (Jon Snow from Game of Thrones – Jon Snoooooo) and I felt like darting out the door at the interval. The moneyContinue reading “WTF did I just watch? Starring Kit Harrington in Doctor Faustus”
It has taken a lot of work and persuasion of the authorities – but any struggle of this size is bound to show results at one point or another. Since midnight, all civil partnerships made abroad between same-sex couples have been recognized in the UK as being legally binding and also gay marriage is nowContinue reading “Finally, UK allows same-sex marriages”
Based on the book “War Horse” by Michael Morpurgo, the theatrical performance of War Horse has attracted over 5 million people since its premiere in 2007 and over a million only last year.
