  • Hey Artichoke,

    Thanks for the offer! He is ok. We got spare SIM, just that he has no handphone and too lazy to get one. Sighhhh...Seems like it is getting common these few months.

    I hear different things about Ealing. Acton seems fine, but the crime rate is pretty high as well. I have been to chickswick high areas, and quite liked it. It really depends on the exact location, I guess.

    From my personal experience, I would avoid areas with lots of blacks or other darker shades They DO discriminate against you, sometimes.

    But I do advise girls to be very careful, especially when you need to do "house share". Note that the rooms in London mostly dont have their own locks. I think some people did not even notice this when they view room. It is not easy to get landlords to install for you, both a cultural thing, and also because 1 lock easily cost ?100 pounds to install.

    Having said all that, London is a FUN place to be.

          A set meal is about ?7 and it's a full set with miso soup, drink, main, tofu and the vege. Cheap and good. There is a Japan Centre in Piccadilly too so you can pop in and buy some Jap food in there.

            • Thai Silk outside of waterloo station, i would go there for makan before shows or on trips back from paris on the eurostar.

              also, i like the chinese restaurants and eateries near Leceister Square tube station. There's one particular one that serves bubble tea, that's right on the main road, but i can't remember what the name was. Oh, and Liason is good for a reasonably priced dinner, that's near Leceister Sq tube too.

                    Well you can go out for dinner, or to a play/musical or to any number of clubs (if you like that). I usually would do a play/musical

                    • Need Help for my london trip

                      hey thanks for the reply, because i will be reaching on a sunday afternoon, by the time i check out of the airport and check in to my hotel i suppose it would be around evening. And i am not sure what i can do or where is still open on sunday evening

                      so you guys are saying that there will still be night activities available in covent garden,leicester square,picadilly circus??

                        Sunday nights are for drinking!
                        It's hard to find things to do on a Sunday night. I think, walking along Thames at the South Bank is nice. You can walk from St Pauls Catherdral, cross Milennium Bridge to Tate Modern, turn right and straight all the way to Jubilee Gardens to see London Eye and across Westminster Bridge to see the Palace of Westminster and Westminster Abbey. By then, it should take up about an hour plus and you can take the tube from Westminster home.

                        If that's still not enough for you, walk to Tralfagar Square and from there you can easily walk to Covent Garden (which is pretty dead by then) or Piccadilly Circus.

                        Have fun!

                            • I have not tried it, but I heard Misato in Chinatown is really worth the queue from foodie friends.


                              Same street as wong kei.

                                Misato is good! It's one of the better student haunts for cheap Jap food. It's nearer the Leicester Sq station IIRC. The curry rice is (esp the katsu set!) and cheap, about 7-8pounds for a HUGE portion! But if you've very posh discerning tastebuds, you definitely won't care for it. It's mostly crowded cos the food is reasonable and value for money. Must also try the Capico drink - it's like Yakult (which costs a bomb in the UK, btw) but less sweet. (but I found out you can get Capico at Japanese supermarkets in SG too)
