On the 1st of October was a long day for me. My boyfriend and I got up at 3.30am to go to a pub to watch the ALF Grand Finals in Fulham from 4am until 9am. It was weird because I’ve been in the UK for months and all of a sudden everyone is Australian! I must admit I found the aussie accent really really.. weird even though I’m Australian myself!! I don’t watch sports but it was a really good match.
After that we had breakfast and then went home for a nap then got up to go out again to Waterloo!!
London Film Museum
The London Film Museum is at Waterloo near the London Eye. It’s not very busy but you get to take lots of cool pictures! Some areas you can’t like in the Green Room. If you go, check out the Star Wars pictures of other people! It’s really creative and funny! It’s also a must go if you are a Harry Potter fan.
There’s a lot more to see although the museum itself isn’t as big but it’s really fun 🙂 On the day we went, they were filming Arab Idol. Who knows, you might even meet someone famous when you’re there!!
London Eye is a very popular tourist attraction. To be honest I didn’t want to go because I was discourage by the long queues. Fortunately they have Fast Track tickets so you don’t have to wait long but that’s a little more expensive. Since this is my last week in London my boyfriend suggested that we must go! So I agreed only if we get the Fast Track tickets!! While he went to get the tickets I ran to line up first while he got the tickets but I was rejected because I needed a ticket before I line up!
I was really impressed with the service we get for just paying a little bit more! I thought the Fast Track ticket is awesome because there’s a limited of people which means more room to move and it is really relaxing and pleasant! (I soon found out later that we were on the Champaign Experience and not the standard Fast Track admission!).
Yes, there’s a special ending to this ride!! I had no idea that our whole trip that day was all planned!! Here’s how it all happened!
He asked the staff to take a picture for us..
Then suddenly he asked for everyone’s attention and then!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We were so happy that we celebrated with friends by having a barbecue AND FIREWORKS!! London is so cool! It’s legal to buy fireworks from supermarkets!!
It was definitely one of the best day of my life! I was genuinely surprised and I think he did a great job! It was perfect location, perfect weather and perfect setting! I’m not fussy but I’m glad he could propose to me in London specifically because that’s where we began dating.
Now all he needs to do is meet the parents and family! (yes, we did it backwards but who really cares? Life should be spontaneous and spontaneous it was indeed!! 🙂 )
