Ah. Sunday! Sunday is always my favorite day of the week (only when i am living alone). I usually devote my whole morning to my apartment. Once I get out of bed, I start my “BIG CLEAN SUNDAY” with some music. After that, I would always stay on my comfy sofa, watch some tv or surf the net. Sometimes, if I am energetic enough, I would cook / bake something.
This week has been a busy week for me. I feel overwhelmed by school and work. I was both mentally and physically exhausted from learning the final two exam pieces and long hours work, oh yeah and my period. I didn’t have enough time for myself and my brain to rest. So today, I ditched my “Big Cleaning Sunday” routine , allow myself to wake up at 11 and meet Doug for lunch. We agreed meeting at 12:30 at Covent Garden but I was a little late from last minute vacuuming my hairy floor and Dough over slept. While waiting for Dough, I meandered around Covent Garden and finally decided to sit down at Nero Cafe to read my favorite book. Doug and I met in front of the Cafe and walk to our Lunch destination: Hawksmoor. Dough said apparently Hawksmoor has the best Sunday roast. Let’s see…
We ordered a Crab & Samphire Salad to share, 2 Sunday roast & a bottle of still water.
I didn’t take picture of the salad. So here we go to the picture of the Sunday Roast.
Sunday Roast: Rump, cabbage, carrot, potatoes & yorkshire pudding
The roast , really, there nothing I could pick on it. R e a l l y ! Every bits on that plate are scrumptious! I have never ever have a piece of rump so tender before ! I gently poked the side of the rump with my fork and it gently bounced back! It was responding to me! Every mouthful made you want to close your eyes, swing your body and hum a song. Not only the rump, the sides were perfectly cooked as well. The cabbage tasted buttery, carrot was glazed with honey , OH and the potatoes, THEY ARE AMAZINGLY GOOD ! It’s crispy on the outside and very fluffy inside ! How can Hawksmoor do that, how can they manage to make all the food on my plate so perfect and so tasty that it was irrepressible to finish everything on the dish. If you’re only staying here for a few days, Hawksmoor is a MUST GO ! Don’t believe me? Try IT !
After a very satisfying meal, we sauntered to Carnaby street for dress shopping! This was not part of the schedule but Doug said there was a nice dress shop that I should really go to. I walked in the shop with thought telling me “I won’t wear this or that” but Doug was right ! Few dresses were pretty nice. He insisted me on trying some and I ended up buying two dresses with a good price ! HEEHEE thanks Doug, kk, you’re cool.
Dinner. I invited Jas, Ian & Vishak over for HOT POT ! First time my apartment was so crowded ! It was such a chill and fun dinner. Ian bought two bottles of sparkling wine and they tasted good ! Really easy drinking ! I showed them the dresses I bought and they came up with some crazy ideas. We laughed about it and hopefully we are really gonna DO it !!
