hello from london! :)


hi everyoooone! maaaan, i owe my blog so many posts already! just been extremely busy the past few weeks. right now i am on a super quick vacation, and i decided to go to london! i've been wanting to go here for the loooongest time, and my sister now lives here, so this is the winning city on my list. i've been loving every second here! such a lovely, albeit gloomy city!



tonight is too cold a night to head out, its around 10 degrees plus wind chill factor! yikes! so my sister aissa, her boyfriend james, and i decided to stay in for the night. i wanted to still do something productive with my time so with the help of my sister, i cooked!!!! :p

my sister has a cookbook called 'just five ingredients', a collection of recipes that only call for five ingredients. cool! since her boyfriend requested for a sausage dish, we decided to make sausage, tomato, and butter bean bake!



all you have to do is:

1. cook sausages until lightly brown then set aside
2. using the same pan, put a large chopped onion, sage, a can of chopped tomatoes, and simmer til thick
3. in an oven proof dish, put in the tomato mixture, a can of butter beans, place the sausages on top
4. bake in a pre heated 180 degree oven for around 15-20 minutes



you can prepare buttered vegetables on the side.. i actually had to have rice with it.. :p



and.. tadaaaaaa!!!! sausage, tomato, and butter bean bake!!!!



i don't know how to cook. i bake. i love baking! i mean i have the skills to cook, and i can if someone was there to guide me, but on my own i can't. but honestly, i really, really want to learn how to cook already! :)

i've been taking so many photos on this trip and i'm hoping i can share it with you all soon! cheers! :)

Hey ate Bianca! (Can i call you that?) Anyway, London is one of my top getaways too! there's something about that country that really makes you feel fab right? :D And we have another thing in common: love to bake, but can't cook on our own! LOL. Guess we'll both learn someday!

Have a great vacation and I'm looking forward to seeing those lovely pics! :D

Love lots from Oman,
Veeyah! xoxo

Hi ate bianca. I like the top picture. Pang magazine ang photo. Ganda ng London. Parang eksena lang sa gossip girl. Continue to stay cool and humble. I really like ur blog entries.

Hi Bianca I always wanted to travel but im so much busy nowadays. I always wanted to go to London. Parang na sa fairy tale ka. Gusto ko maexperience yung countryside nila. Kasi napanood ko yung The Holiday parang napaka peaceful and such a relaxing place to visit. Tnx again God Bless.

it's my first time to read and comment on your blog,
i'll spend time to read your previous posts, alam ko di masasayang ang oras ko sa pagbabasa.
nagpunta din yung couple friends ko sa London last month, at nag-enjoy ako sa mga photos nila, parang gusto ko rin magpunta pero it'll take time, as of now, i'll enjoy looking on the photos, so please post other photos of your vacation, ASAP, just kidding.

London is a great place to visit. I loved going to the museums and art galleries there. Yun nga lang, ang mahal mahal.

Enjoy your vacation!
