Cambridge & Mind Your Language

Today is 29th of February and this date only appear every 4 years... I always very kesian those who were born on this day... Yalah, it's special but then only get to celebrate every 4 years woh.. not kesian meh?

Anyway, Zewt mentioned that last weekend, he went to Cambridge. And that made me yearn to go there again. So how? Just have to make do with my Cambridge Memory made in 2006 lor... Love the place! Because the air is so fresh... unlike London.



On the way to Cambridge... about an hour's journey from London.


We reached just in time for lunch at this bar called Penny Ferry.


Penny Ferry Bar by the river... the view is beauuuutiful!
Twas' a cool and sunny day!




Inside Penny Ferry...


The bar...


Woot! Slot machines!


Bangers & Mash for lunch! Yeah, the lap cheong a bit chow tar liao...
and it was very salty!

Lil' Sammi's set lunch (for kiddies)


Our dessert...

The rest, to be continued another time when got mood again...

*sigh* Makes my feet itchy again looking at these vacation pics... I wanna go Sydney... and I wanna go Sakura Japan... but but but............ aihhhhhhh... so many butts!! (Maymay, I'll be there, one day! Wait for me!)

Last but not least, here's an episode of the ever liuliu funny British sitcom Mind Your Language for Chev because she blogged about the 80's TV sitcom :P Enjoy!!

I went to Cambridge & Oxford once!! Took a train up there... to visit a specialist aquarium shop, so I could buy this fabulous Angel marine fish for £50, to take back with me to Italy!!! Siau or not? I was a Siau person then.. Couldn't get any siauer...

Mind Your Language just cracks me up!!

Er, Stonehenge? That's not anywhere near Cambridge! At least not to my feeble memory cells. Hmmm.. is it? Can't remember now.. I do know Stonehenge is near Bath though.

Yeah lah £50 for a tiny little fish!! I do have some old pics of her somewhere.. Have to fish them out and air them some day.. In fact, I was planning another fishy entry, but got waylaid by Rats and such..

L B said...

How I miss good old English Bangers! The Greasy Joe type though, unlike yours.. 2 sausages, sunnyside up eggs, 2 slices of BACON, baked beans, toast, and cuppa tea.. and Apple Pie!

L B said...

Jarrod & Rawlins, anyone?

angeles said...

Ah yes, Stonehenge! I couldn't decide if I had wanted to go to Bath, Cambridge or Oxford, I think... time no enuff... but of cos, I had your M & S pork pies on your behalf... kkkkkk...

Yes, one day, please show us the "gold" fish... yalah, your fish made from gold izit?? So expensive...and how long did she live? 10 yrs?
