Vee day at Lufbra

Amazing day, blessed with wonderful weather.
Sparse clouds in the blue sky.
Most importantly, the good company.
Indeed, it was surreal. To be able to shop, dine and explore this new continent with you.

It’s Vee day. And nope, (I was asked by a few about V day  in Loughborough), I’m glad that it was not all the hearts, big bouquet of roses and couples who seem to feel the competition to disply there love.
No doubt, there were a few bears with heart around, but it’s more subtle here. More intangible, which seem to be more in sync with the notion of love.



Nope, these flowers are sold here every weekend.. afterall, we don’t need an occasion to give flowers, do we?




Thornton’s Flagship store in Loughborough (pronounce: Lufbra).. I almost fainted inside..




We stepped into the very generic English eatert, with lotsa beer, live football/rugby telecast and men. Hmm, the many types of sauces they provide made me wonder if the food will taste bad. You know, sauce to make up for the lack of taste…





But I was wrong! It was not bad! For 5 pounds each dish! I will be back for the desserts, someday! I had no space for desserts….cos…



… I wanted to try the Milkshake. Had Twix Milkshake (they have many man flavours to choose from: Reese Buttercup, Mars, Snickers, Apple Pie, Cinnamon..blah blah blah..) , and it was damn damn sweet (even the mashmallows here are sweeter, I heard…haven’t and don’t intend to try that)– I’m not going near any sort of milkshake in the next 2 years! But the cup was real cute la, hmm, that was the reason I wanted to try the milkshake actually!



We had a good laugh when we passed this…shoe said it looks “dodgy”. Cheesey eh!



Haha, I want a “Department of Geography” van too!



Now, I can’t wait to go to Paris, Amsterdam(?), and Milan too! Maybe can squeeze Prague in? Ok shoe! We’ll book by next week! Then I will go find people out to go to Spain with me!

Alrighty, time to sleep. Heading to Notthingham tomorrow!

Psst. Lufbra’s town ain’t big, but wow, shopping here can be quite shiong. haha, and when you flash you student’s card, you get 10% off at Topshop (and some other shops too!) I’m falling in love being an exchange student la– study between play, flash card and get discount!

Psst Psst. Gotta share this amazing song with everyone! It’s on repeat mode in my iPod.
