Londres...it's been a while.

Went down to London just recently, to see Fish Leong! :)))) It was kind of a mad day as nothing was really planned...as usual. Ended up just going with the flow...but we got there.

Got to London in the early afternoon and I really wanted to try out this Malaysian restaurant that my parents had been to...WITHOUT me. We spent like more than an hour trying to look for it and we still couldn't find it. I swear we walked around the whole of China Town yet we were nowhere near it! It was such a bad idea to go to China Town on that day as it was a Sunday and everyone was celebrating Chinese New Year! It was madnesssss!! Definitely don't plan on going to Chino Town again during Chinese New Year...well not in London anyway! It's OVERCROWDED...actually, that's probably an understatement. 

We went to this AUTHENTIC Korean restaurant for brunch. WE WERE STARVING.

After having our brunch we thought we'd have a stroll around London for a bit as we still had time left! So we headed to Oxford Street and oh my, I got to have a look around Forever21 for like the first time! I was well excited! It's such a shame that we couldn't shop though! Must go back sometime! Some foreigners are going to be like errr what's so special about Forever21...well there's only like 2/3 in England at the moment so that's why I was so amazed. The clothes in there looked pretty nice. :)

We wanted to go to Harrods afterwards, well I did anyway, but we couldn't seem to find it so we asked a couple and they were like errr it's pretty far away from here...They asked us where we were all from and I said Manchester and they seemed surprised? :S Maybe I just look reallllly Chino?
Instead of going to Harrods, we went to the BIGGEST Selfridges EVER. It is sooooo much better than the one we have! Tres tres grande!

Time was up and we had to go to the Apollo! We got there and OMG I had never seen so many Chinese people in my life! The queue was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo long!

Just wait until you see the other photo!

The queue was incredibly long so we returned after like 40 minutes and then we got stopped by one of the workers outside the arena...well my friends did. 

So why were they approached?

I'm so glad I got out of it! Well I kind of ran off to be precise.

We just got in in time! But OMG we were fuming when we got to our seats to realise that there was a couple already sat there. We complained to one of the members of staff and she checked both our tickets, and the couple's tickets and apparently the system sold the same tickets twice...I'm sorry but how the heck did that happen. What annoyed us even more was that we ended up having to sit on the side and it wasn't like the tickets were cheap! We paid for four seats and they gave us three! Also, we could barely see a thing from our angle. I was...ANNOYED.

Half way through the concert, these girls came in and told us that we were sat in their seats and started moaning. We told them that we were told to sit there by a member of staff as our seats were taken yet she still moaned at us. I'm sorry but we paid for four tickets and we got three, how do you think we felt? We were just doing as we were told. She started to get a little grumpy and I got so annoyed that I actually said something. Normally I would keep my mouth shut but she was taking everything out on us! Not taking that crap. So doing what she should have done minutes ago, she called another member of staff over and my friends and them discussed what was going on...so the member of staff got all three tickets and compared...and guess what we found out...the couple that was sit in OUR seats were meant to be sat DOWNSTAIRS, AT THE BACK. CHEEKY OR WHAT? :O Soooooooo SNEAKY!
And how the heck did that woman earlier read the seat numbers WRONG? :S
So yeah, we weren't happy with the service at all!
In the end we got our four seats back and enjoyed the second half of the concert.

Regardless of the bad service, Fish Leong performed WELL! Lovedddd her voice! <3 She didn't miss a single note! 
It was a shame that she didn't bring a guest with her though!

This was my favourite outfit of hers!

All in all, it was nice being able to go to London again after so many years! I would love to go again this year! Maybe in the summer eh...

That's it for now...
