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!
Parma ham + asparagus + wasabi mayo
I tweeted pix of our lunch, and some asked which restaurant i was at.
Aunty Gerry was awfully chuffed
Couscous + grilled chicken
Cheeses, and ice cream cake to finish off!
Wilson with a Lat and penguin toy
After lunch, Yishyene and i hurried out to play on the trampoline all afternoon
LOVE lying down on the grass here!
Totally can’t do that in Msia cos i’ll end up with dirt and poo and start itching all over.
Aunt G. asked me to put my head next to the bush cos it looked like a flower.
fairy, RyanSoosay, Yishyene
My Uncle Mark and Aunty Gerry.
Don’t i look like the adopted colourful misfit child that got dumped there :p
Stepping on my aunty’s head haha
We walked across the road to the fields where the horses were kept.
Above is a pic of the house with Yishyene standing outside.
Aunty G sitting on the stile
Petting the horses and feeding them polo mints
Yishyene thought it’d be funny to pet me -_-
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!
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: 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.
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”
Khalif the horse, is only a couple of years younger than me 0_o
Lonesome Lodge the house…
And the flowers! Oh, the flowers!
I got made fun of just cos i liked taking pictures of daisies… -_-
Isn’t the poppy freaking beautiful? And it’s larger than my hand as well!
Found a tyre swing in the neighbour’s garden
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
My floral romper from ThePopLook
Had tea after the tour of the house.
Well the others had tea, i had wine
And SCONES AND CLOTTED CREAM!
I LOVE CLOTTED CREAM ARHMARHMARHM *cookie monster sound*
Saw these two old ladies in bright pink coming down a hill,
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
More flowers :p
Can’t help it, i loike!
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.
Grilled lamb chops with basil, pepper and other herbs
Mixed wasabi powder with mayonnaise to dollop unto smoked salmon.
Steamed veggies to retain flavour and juices.
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.
Die okay you all -_-
