|St Paul's Garden|
First day, arriving and shopping. Completed. Our main highlights for today will be having our English breakfast at Bread Street Kitchen owned by celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay and catching the Richard II Play at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. Can't wait.!
The St Paul's Cathedral
We started of with a morning walk around St Paul's Cathedral garden. Feeling old. Taking a look at the cathedral's amazing architecture.

The Gordan's Bread Street Kitchen
Next, headed down the Bread Street. Just along the St Paul's Cathedral. Arriving at Gordan's Bread Street Kitchen. The restaurant amazed me. Its interior design was astonishing, with its really spacious settings.

|English Breakfast (£11.95) and Cappuccino (£3.25). What's Better?|
The high standards does reached my expectations from this place. From exceptional restaurant's interior designs to customer services to food qualities. Everything was great. However, prices are way above my budget. Probably a place for business men.
|Great Way to Start the Day|
The Millennium Bridge
I must admit, was a great breakfast besides burning a hole in my pocket. Well, we continued our journey, walking towards the Millennium Bridge. Just opposite the St Paul's Cathedral. One of the beautiful bridges in the world.

|Lovely Street Performance|
Just right after crossing the bridge, the building right in front will be Tate Modern Gallery. Quite an interesting place for a quick visit, having some interesting Modern British Arts. Note, almost all Museums/Galleries in London is admission free so why not enter!
The Shakespeare's Globe Theatre
A must go! Lovely place. Lovely live play. We went for the Richard II play by William Shakespeare. A highly intelligent and fast-moving production.

|Crowds are coming in fast!|
They were very strict with the no camera/video during the play so we were not able to take any pictures of the play. Tsk tsk. To me the play was really good, was a great one time experience thing. Not something i would go for a second time, not really a fan of watching people talking. Simply saying, the play was all big talk and no action. Lol.
The Borough Market
Next, we walked about 5min towards Borough Market. London's most renowned food market. Great places to find some local street food. Best to visit during the peak times where there are plentiful of stalls.
|Wasabi Sushi & Bento|
|Some Quick Lunch|
We walked around and stumbled upon this interesting Sushi Restaurant. Looks interesting enough to get us in. We had the Salmon Teriyaki (£6.45) and some sushi which cost around £0.60 to £0.72 a packet.
The Tower Bridge
Next, checking out the Tower Bridge. Quite a sight not to be missed.

The Westfield London
We ended our day with some luxury shopping at Westfield London. One of my favourite mall in London. Huge mall, huge variety of shops. I don't think one should miss out this mall if you are a shopping person.
Travelling in London have been really easy due to the huge underground train network. With the prepaid Oyster Card, we easily take the train or bus. Today was another great day in London City. Tomorrow we will be checking out the Hardrock Cafe London.
