things to do on a rainy day in london / tate modern, borough market, duck and waffle

rainy london… it’s funny how just because i was here about a year ago everything seemed way more natural this time around. i no longer felt that excitement of traveling to a place for the first time. i no longer felt the need to see the attractions. we just drifted around the city as our schedule allowed and it. felt. so. good.

but this particular day made me understand what it meant to be in a miserable weather of london. ah it was grey, it was sprinkling, it was so cold.

quick breakfast at starbucks. talking of starbucks i just finished “pour your heart into it” a book by howard schultz the ceo of starbucks and i learned so much about how starbucks became the starbucks of today. one quote that sticks to my mind:

“whatever you do, don’t play it safe. don’t do things the way they’ve always been done. don’t try to fit the system. if you do what’s expected of you, you’ll never accomplish more than others expect.”

tate modern

?? where did the artwork go?

ohhhh so rebellious.

this was my favorite section about photography.

what’s so funny about this place is that when i watch youtubers from the uk talk about wagamama they make it sound bomb. in contradiction, my asian friends who are in the uk studying or working always tell me how horrible the food is. i think i was more excited to try this place than anything else this trip and come on, i thought it wasn’t too bad 😋

the gentlemen baristas

annnnnd i was back at borough market. 🤗

i seriously kept buying coffee to keep my hands warm.

if i wasn’t planing to go to duck and waffle for dinner i probably would’ve devoured them. 😳

duck and waffle

goes to duck and waffle to not have duck and waffle. what an irony of life. 😂 all dishes were delicious but i’d say you’re paying more for the view and the ambiance.

cheers to the amazing night with an amazing person. 🥂
