Dimsums, Tate Modern & Harrods Food Hall.

1100     Wanted to have dimsum today; but we went out too early; had a quick snack at a HK         
             bakery first; as we were absolutely starving!
1200     And finally, our dimsum spread! Siew-mai; chicken feet & glutinous rice galore;
1300    On the way to the Tate Modern, passed by St. Paul's; we were absolutely awe struck!

Going for the Hobo look; with a thick chunky sweater, maxi skirt and beat up boots;
1400     Tate Modern; what I came for- The Unilever Series: Ai Wei Wei
I love the symbolism behind the use of sunflower seeds; and how each and every one of these seeds; more than hundreds of millions of these; were handmade and painted by skilled artisans in China. The money these villagers received in turn were definitely a great help for them!
1500     Where I sat gazing at Claude Monet's Water Lilies, Philip Guston's The Return and
             Gerhard Richter's Material Gestures;
I did not spend a lot of time at the Tate, but these works were a few of my favorites; the use of the colors were extremely captivating; and I especially love; the reason why Richter made his Venice Women sculptures as skinny as a piece of spaghetti.
1600     Harrods Food Hall
I've never seen eggs that come in purple, green, yellow, pink and orange cartons;
1700     Dinner at Caffe Concerto;
Yummiest, and creamiest Broccoli Soup;
Hot Duck and Pear Salad; One of the best salads I've ever had; The duck was cooked to perfection; the greens and pears were so crunchy and fresh; Would really recommend this restaurant if you are in the area; it's got a lovely ambiance, great service and the food is just marvelous!

1800     Walking to the Victoria & Albert Museum
And so after dinner, Harrison & I decided to make our way to the V&A Museum; as the Lonely Planet stated that the museum will be opened till 10pm on Wednesday! We took our time, shopping for magazines, warm woolly sweaters; and then we realised; the V&A is closed! Yes, we did feel pretty stupid at that point in time...
1900     Harrods Pet Kingdom, L7
Thanks to extended Christmas shopping hours; Harrison & I decided to go back to Harrods. We went straight up to the Pet Kingdom as neither of us have any use (or rather, £££,) for expensive gowns, suits and shoes; and still, we were blown away when we saw diamond/gems encrusted collars, actual fur coats for dogs and £200 doggy leashes on sale. Not wanting Kobe & Nono to feel left out back home, we bought them the run of the mill Harrods saucers and some £10 doggy treats and grooming brushes. It was definitely a crazy half hour in there for us. Hah.

That's all I have for now; actually no, I'm lying; I've got tons of photos saved on my laptop, but not enough time to do a post! Every night; I fall asleep at around 9+, without fail!  It's annoying, actually; but I can't help but feel so drowsy! So, as it's Christmas today, and all the shops are closed, I took the opportunity to do another A Picture An Hour post and I think it turned out to be pretty fab;p Anyway, have a Merry Christmas everyone; hope you're having a jolly good time where ever you are; xx
