Reigate: Lonesome Lodge

The day after our trip out to Kent,
we decided to stay in,
just so we could rest and potter about the garden and fields.

Lunch was home-cooked again!   :xheart2:

Aunt G. asked me to put my head next to the bush cos it looked like a flower.
I obliged.

My aunt took this picture of Yishyene and i while we were lying on the lawn in the evening,
trying to drink up as much sunlight as possible.

Aunty G: What are you two doing?! It’s 8 something at night! You two are crazy!
Us:  :roll:   :roll:
Aunty G: There’s dew on the ground! You’re going to get sick!
Us: No we won’t! *chorus*
Aunty G: Are you guys hungry? What do you want to eat?
Me: Ha… we kinda just finished lunch a couple of hours ago… 0_o
Aunty G: Maybe something light?
Yishyene: Maybe something like fruits…? *softly*
Aunty G: I know! I’ll go see whether we have lamb burgers! *ignores us and stomps off with purpose*
Us:  :xshocked:   :xshocked:  Fruits la… not burgers…. -_-

Needless to say, we ended the day with burgers grilled with onions + pear,
with grilled mushrooms and peas.

There is no such thing as a ‘light meal’ in my aunty’s house.   :xshy:

Surrey + Kent: Knowle @ Sevenoaks

Last Saturday, Yishyene, RyanSoosay and i took a morning train
to Redhill where Uncle Mark picked us up.
We then headed straight for the stables to watch Aunt Gerry ride,
which uncle deemed a “compulsory activity”   :xshy:

We had lunch at Three Bells pub,
before dropping my grannie home cos she’d be bored at Knowle house.
Think she kena dragged to too many historic places till she cannot tahan already >.<

See my friend Yishyene. Who doesn’t know how to eat properly. Or something.

I passed out from the lunch on the way to Knowle at Sevenoaks, Kent.
And ultimately… so did the rest of us. Poor Uncle Mark driving alone :p

and thought it’d made a nice picture.

The deer were really tame, and RyanSoosay suggested i play my Disney Bambi music (which i was playing earlier on the lawn) to draw it closer.

After Knowle house, we dropped by an area where A Room with a View was filmed
because the houses and surroundings replicate the 1800s most accurately

Also stopped by Uncle Mark’s old boarding school, Tonbridge,
where i couldn’t help smelling the flowers.
And Yishyene said i looked like i was eating it.

By the time we got home, it was night and my aunt said it was up to us whether we wanted to eat in or out.
RyanSoosay and Yishyene looked at me,
so i said EAT HOME-COOKED PLEASE!

I love my aunt’s cooking…
always fresh and yummy food.
I know this is so irrelevant to my blog since it’s kononnya a travel + fashion one,
but eff it.
I live to eat so i will darn well blog about food too!

We had grilled aubergine (love!) with olive oil and teriyaki sauce.

Yishyene snapped a (cock-eyed) picture of me cos she’s never envisioned me in the kitchen before -_-
Don’t know why, but Meesh did the same thing when i was doing the dishes on Friday.
