Japanese diet - my story/diary

First day:
Consumption: 914ckal
Whole day's food: £4.90

One cup of coffee for breakfast only. I'm not really uncomfortable with that. Ever since I was little I can't really eat lots for breakfast. I need few hours after waking up so I could be able to eat a proper meal.

I LOVE eggs. But the amount of cabbage I shredded as a side was a bit too much. (〜 ̄▽ ̄)〜 It's not bad though. Veggies are gooood. (“⌒∇⌒”) I hate tomato juice. It's good that I was skyping with mom so it was distracting me from the horrible taste. (_´ω`)


I love that you can eat any fish you like. So salmon is my number one!! I love salmon so much. Honestly, it was first time I ate it all by itself without any spices. But I totally loved it. Only thumbs up. (´▽`ʃƪ)

Feeling good so far. I don't feel that much hunger.

Lost today: 1.9kg

Second day:
Consumption: 1192kcal
Whole day's food: £6.21

Coffee and toast is goood. Be sure to eat slow. The feeling of fullness comes later. (^_^)

The only thing measured in today's lunch is fish. So if I feel hungry I can eat lots of veggies. Yay!

I feel really full. Didn't rush to eat dinner. Not a fan of beef but what needs to be done needs to be done lol. (Note to self: don't eat yoghurt too quick after eating meat. Not good results in the toilet... TMI...). 


Btw I also misread the menu and accidentally fried instead of boiled my beef... Oops! Not the healthiest option...but still beef right? Won't happen again. \(;゚∇゚)/
I wish breakfast was a bit fuller sometimes but it's okay. I can do it even though my bf is eating pizza... (▰˘︹˘▰)

Lost today: 0.7kg
Lost so far: 2.6kg

Third day:
Consumption: 1141kcal
Whole day's food: £5.01

Coffee became my morning tradition now (it used to be lunch/evening tradition lulz).

Instead of having fried carrots I've decided to do salad from the required ingredients. 3 grated carrots, 3 diced apples and a tablespoon of olive oil. Total perfection. There's so much salad though!! The fact that I must eat it all makes me laugh. It's super duper healthy yet has so little calories. That's the example of a perfect healthy eating and proof that you don't have to starve yourself to lose weight. ◦°˚\(´°౪°`)/˚°◦


I was eating this while my boyfriend was eating pizza. Yes, I was a bit sad but honestly my sadness didn't last long when I noticed how slow my bf became after his meal and how energetic I was after my delicious salad. A total win. And when I gave it to my bf to try he even said that he's starting to understand how bad a heavy and fatty food is. (wow..finally?!) I think I'm starting to show good example. (๑˃̵ᴗ˂̵)و

Lost today: 0kg
Lost so far: 2.6kg

Fourth day: 
Consumption: 716kcal
Whole day's food: £2.87

I was never a fan of cooked carrots. I didn't mind eating them in salads or soups. But I never thought I would hate them so much on their own. Today was also my bf's and mine anniversary. We went out to visit Madam Tussauds museum. After that I opened my packed lunch and after few tablespoons I just couldn't eat anymore! I was aloud to eat 15g of cheese today. I separated it into 3 pieces so I ate one as well. OMG I didn't realise that cheese was sooo delicious! It's probably because I didn't have any spices or full flavour food recently. My taste buds were having a party after that 5g of cheese. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

Don't get scared about the calories. It is a low calorie diet after all. Plus it was my problem I got so little calories because I didn't have enough fruits prepared for the evening and I didn't finish all my lunch because I almost threw up. Ugh, cooked carrots lol...

The amount of calories I've got were too little for a productive and active day I had so I was extremely tired in the evening. But as I've said before. It's my own fault. 。(*^▽^*)ゞ

Lost today: 0kg
Lost so far: 2.6kg

Fifth day:
Consumption: 898kcal
Whole day's food: £7.97



Today was pretty awesome. I've had a perfect amount of food. Never felt hungry during all day. The fruit dinner was the best dinner in a whole week so far. Love love love it. ( ˘ ³˘)♥

Lost today: 1kg
Lost so far: 3.6kg

Sixth day:
Consumption: 933kcal
Whole day's food: £2.47

I'm almost halfway through. Feeling really good. Especially when I see that weight is disappearing little by little. If I would lose another 3.6kg I would be really happy. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

Lost today: 0kg
Lost so far: 3.6kg

Seventh day:
Consumption: 880kcal
Whole day's food: £6.05

This morning I was feeling very down. I missed normal food and was looking at my boyfriend eating pizza and fries full of jealousy. (ఠ్ఠ ˓̭ ఠ్ఠ) The dislike of beef became hate. I munched those tasteless pieces with grumpy face. ლ(ಠ益ಠლ


Since today is a free dinner choice from the other days (except 3rd) I've decided to have a fruit dinner. I need some flavour!!! At least dinner is great. Happy again. Waiting for the weight results tomorrow. 〜( ̄▽ ̄〜)

Lost today: 0.3kg
Lost so far: 3.9kg

Eight day: 
Consumption: 812kcal
Whole day's food: £2.21

After yesterday's grumpiness and quite happy evening I've decided that being sad about food is just not for me. Especially when I saw that I've lost extra 0.3kg. That's not much but considering that my weight is not jumping up and down anymore - that's improvement.

Managed to cook chicken really nice and juicy as well. (´⌣`ʃƪ)

By the way, I've also noticed that the amount of calories are going down towards the halfway of the diet and back to normal ~1100 calories towards the end. Assuming it's kind of letting your body get used to a really low calorie diet and then putting you back to the normal diet. Body doesn't react well to 800 calories a day shock anyways. Thumbs up to people who created this. ヾ(@^▽^@)ノ

Lost today: 0.2kg
Lost so far: 4.1kg

Ninth day:
Consumption: 813kcal
Whole day's food: £5.25

As my diet is coming to an end I am dreaming about normal food more and more. Haha. But at the same time thinking that if my weight is gonna drop so slowly I won't lose as much as I would like to... (* ̄m ̄) Well, I still have 4 days. So lots of time to work it!!!

For today's fruit dinner I've decided to have 2 mandarins, kiwi and pear. <3



Can we take few minutes to appreciate this beautiful mandarin which is pregnant with another mandarin?? Sooooo cuuuuuute! ヾ(o≧∀≦o)ノ゙ And delicious as well! б(>ε<)∂

What felt weird today is that I got a headache from nowhere in the evening but I'm not entirely sure why. I didn't want to take any medicine and basically didn't have energy and somehow it magically disappeared in like an hour. ╚═། . ◯ o ◯ . །═╝

Lost today: 0kg
Lost so far: 4.1kg

Tenth day:
Consumption: 663kcal
Whole day's food: £2.20

Somehow I managed to eat very little calories today. Even though I ate a lot. I feel okay but I started feeling tired more. Whenever I go out for a walk for more than 2 hours I come back home feeling extremely tired and usually just fall asleep. I'm glad diet is almost over. (⊙︿⊙✿)

Lost today: 0kg
Lost so far: 4.1kg

Eleventh day:
Consumption: 1089kcal
Whole day's food: £3.95

I had to go out unexpectedly today so ended up eating only 1 apple on my way instead of normal lunch by the diet. (┳◇┳) Yet I decided to treat myself with some latte. No regrets lol.

Lost today: 0.4kg
Lost so far: 4.5kg

Twelfth day:
Consumption: 894kcal
Whole day's food: £6.09


The day when I realised that I hate spiceless cod. \(*T▽T*)/

So I changed today's dinner radically. Even the thought of tasteless and disgusting beef made me sick so I just decided to have some yoghurt, apples and toast instead. *sighs* Sorry not sorry. ^-^ It was still healthy and not over my nutrition goals. (▰˘◡˘▰)

Lost today: 0kg
Lost overall: 4.5kg

(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

Oh my glob, where is day 13?? Well, my dear readers, there is no day 13 because I decided to stop! Yes, there was only one day left and all that but like I mentioned before I felt tired all the time and since I do like to go out for walks a lot I would come back so so so tired and it was just too much for me. After all my weight was dropping really slowly already and I realised what I need to do to keep going the right way.

I adjusted MyFitnessPal program a bit to help me continue to lose weight. I realised that it is better to feel a slight hunger than eat sh*tloads of food and feel horrible afterwards. My stomach got a lot smaller. Probably the size of what it's supposed to be. I am really glad and I noticed that I need a lot less food. I feel full eating less which is great. Human body doesn't need that much food.

Overall, I'm happy with the results. I've lost 4.5kg in 12 days. I've heard people losing 6kg and more. Even thought I wanted results like that I think it would be really crazy so I am grateful for what I've got. (⌒▽⌒)

Japanese diet

If you follow my Facebook page you should know that I am almost halfway through this Japanese diet (sixth day now). Since the diet is working great so far and I still have 7 days to go, I think it is worth it to share it with everyone. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

You MUST follow menu as it is. Don't change any ingredients because it won't work as it should. Some people who followed the diet and broke down around 4th day and started again from the 5th stopped losing weight. So don't risk it! 

This is a low calorie diet. You can only do it once in a year or two. Someone advised to take vitamins while on this diet but I don't do that to be honest. Dunno if it's good or bad. (◕ฺ ▿ฺ ◕ฺ)

Even though it's called Japanese diet you won't find any rice or sushi in here. Although diet is mostly based on fish and other protein sources.

When you're allowed to eat fruits you can't eat bananas and grapes because they are too sweet.

No additional sugar, salt or spices are aloud. No snacks, sweets or biscuits. No alcohol. It is very important to drink lots of water.

Eat slowly. Use chopsticks if you want. Even though your stomach is full, the feeling of hunger disappears in around 20 minutes. So never rush you meals. 

Do not add or change anything. It is important to follow everything as it is. If your body won't get enough products the results will be reversed - you'll start gaining weight again or you will stop losing it.

Enough about rules. Here's the menu! ヾ(。◕ฺ∀◕ฺ)ノ

1st and 13th day
Breakfast. Cup of black coffee.
Lunch. 2 boiled eggs, fresh cabbage salad with olive oil, glass of tomato juice.
Dinner. 200-250g of boiled or fried (in olive oil) fish.

2nd and 12th day
Breakfast. Cup of black coffee with gluten free bread toast or gluten free crisp bread. 
Lunch. Boiled or fried fish, fresh vegetable salad (cucumber, radishes, tomatoes, etc.) with olive oil.
Dinner. 100g boiled beef, cup of yoghurt or kefir.

3rd and 11th day
Breakfast. Cup of black coffee with gluten free bread toast or gluten free crisp bread.
Lunch. One fried big zucchini with olive oil OR squash OR blue cabbage OR 3 carrots, 3 apples.
Dinner. 2 boiled eggs, 200g boiled beef, cabbage salad with olive oil.

5th and 9th day
Breakfast. Fresh carrot with lemon juice.
Lunch. Boiled or fried fish, glass of tomato juice.
Dinner. Fruits (except bananas and grapes).

6th and 8th day
Breakfast. Cup of black coffee.
Lunch. Half of small chicken (without skin), 3 tablespoons of fresh carrot and cabbage salad.
Dinner. 2 boiled eggs, fresh carrot salad with olive oil.

7th day
Breakfast. Green or herb tea.
Lunch. 200g of boiled beef, fruits (except bananas and grapes).
Dinner. Any food from other day’s dinner except 3rd.

As you've probably noticed the diet goes backwards after 7th day.

So that's all you have to know! I will be posting my diet diary as soon as I finish this diet. I am tracking everything down with My Fitness Pal - a really cool website and app. If you want to add me, my username is: RINATSUCHAN.

 Sorry for a long post and I wish you very best of luck. 

Just so you won't get bored, here's a picture of the cutest guinea pig ever - my sister's dearest pet. ♥(✿ฺ´∀`✿ฺ)ノ


Good luck~

Why I don't have any spare change

Something happened few days ago that inspired me to write this blog post.

But before that appreciate this random picture of my boyfriend on the hill thinking about life

If you live in UK you know that there are lots of beggars on the streets. I'm guessing in almost every city. The difference between Lithuanian and British beggars is that most of the latter ones usually look like just some random passer by on the street. They dress quite tidy and they usually don't have red, swollen from alcohol faces that most of Lithuanian beggars do. But there's other big problem - drugs. There's always this woman walking around the shopping centre in Milton Keynes, asking for 50p or something like that. Reason unknown but guessable. Her eyes always look lost and I just get shiver down my spine whenever she approaches me. I just don't feel confident when she's around.

Anyways, when I first came here I used to feel sorry for the beggars on the street probably because people are a lot nicer in Northampton. But unfortunately I couldn't give any money because I was struggling a lot myself.

Oh my god, look at this creepy dead tree we found by the Gullivers Land Theme Park

So back to the reason of this post. Few days ago I was walking home after my shift. I was listening to music through my earphones and messaging with someone at the same time. I passed the usual beggar who's often there around the Hub. I always feel bad vibes from him every time I go past him. He sounds rude and unmannered (which I don't expect from the beggar but at least a bit of manners should be there) so I always try to avoid him. As I was walking past him that day my music stopped and I heard him asking for spare change. My earphones are bright red so it's easy to notice that I can't hear anything at the moment. So he spilled to my back 'greedy bitch'. Okay that pissed me off. I didn't stop but turned around with the most pissed off look ever. And if my eyes could kill he would be dead in 0.00000001 second.

First of all, find a job! I don't say it's easy but I started from 0 when I came here in UK you know. I worked some of the hardest jobs for the girl. I've cried, I've been in depression. But I'm here now after all the hell. My job now is nothing special but me being a foreigner finding a job as a waitress is really hard. So it's a big success to me. And I get a decent wage. Yes, I could give some spare change from time to time. But you know what? I WON'T. Not because I'm greedy, no. Because I will better send my 'spare change' to my mom (which I do every pay day) who helped me so much when I came here even thousands of miles away from me. Financially and emotionally. And I knew that she struggled herself as she helped me so much.

Second of all, stop treating random people like that and learn some manners! I've seen a lot of beggars being really polite and nice but you never know where your money goes. Is it for a piece of bread or drugs...? I bet they get benefits anyways. UK has too many benefits for people who don't deserve it. That's the different topic though.

My rant is done. Now you don't need to ask me for some spare change because the answer is NO lol.

Anyways. I love my mom. (◍•ᴗ•◍)❤

Yes, I randomly took a picture of my mom's legs during my holidays in Lithuania because I was bored waiting for our doctor

Restaurant Review: Banana Tree Milton Keynes

Helloooooo~

Whoa I'm seriously starting to get so random right now. I've been writing about so many things in my blog but I think this is my first restaurant review haha. Expanding!

I was eagerly waiting for this restaurant to open in The Hub, Milton Keynes for a few months now. The cuisine is said to be Indochina. I've never tried that before but was really interested. I joined their mailing list as they were promoting it on the soon-to-be-opened restaurant but sadly I joined it too soon as the free dessert I received was valid only till the start of July and the restaurant opened like a week ago. (╯︵╰,)

First impressions. Interesting. There's a chill zone as soon as you enter and bartenders greets you asking you if you want to sit at the bar or you're here to eat. If you want to eat you have to pass by the open kitchen on your left which is really weird. Never seen it before. 

Interior. Something's missing. It has unique interior. Everything's wooden and it has lots of different spaces for you to sit and eat. But it feel's like something's missing though. It looks like it haven't been finished yet haha. Also the kitchen is all white tiles and it doesn't really fit all wooden front of house interior.

Service. Not too bad. The manager or supervisor who greeted us was really nice. Explained the menu since we were really confused. I still was even after his explanation though hahaha but let's ignore that. Our server was obviously new in this kind of job. Self-conscious introverted girl. Was really hard to make her laugh even though my dearest and I were all funny and easy going. I don't blame her. I was like that too when I started haha. I hope she'll improve. 。◕‿◕。 

Mains. Weird portions, weird taste. I don't even know. I'm a big gourmet. But I really wanted to try this Indochina cuisine. The ingredients sounded all randomly threw together. It was so hard to choose. Also it comes alone so you have to order sides separately. My dearest ordered crispy chicken with mango and lime sauce and I grabbed seafood curry. My choice was probably the worst choice in history lol. Teeny tiny pan with I don't even know what. Honestly I found like once tiny piece of tilapia fillet, 3 prawns, 2 random weird fish cakes and some sponges (I've no idea what that was). Had all this with jasmine rice. Was pretty bad but I don't blame the kitchen. I wanted to experiment so I chose it. I'm not like one of those b*tchy customers who wouldn't pay for something that they originally wanted to just try. Lol my choice my fault. The rice didn't have much taste though. (´_`。) My dearest really liked his crispy chicken with egg fried rice though. Although I wasn't a big fan of his food either. I guess it's just not my food hahaha. What I didn't like was a big difference in different main courses in size. All the prices were pretty much similar but the sizes were like WOW WHAT? After eating a teeny tiny pan of something I saw a huge plate of salads and meat and everything on other table. Whoa, jelly...


Desserts. Eh? Damn, desserts took me a while as well. It's just sooo hard to choose with these weird combinations. After a long time analysing menu I finally decided to order Balinese 'Pulut Hitam' Pudding. It took so long for the kitchen to prepare it that I forgot what I ordered and when it came I was a bit surprised...


When my dearest asked for a bill we saw a 'pancake' on the bill which wasn't what we ordered (the price was also different). It looks like this was a Coconut Stuffed Green Thai Pancakes. The stuffing was really dry and too crunchy... I loved the ice cream though hahaha. Yeah so unfortunately I didn't get pudding I really wanted to try. But you know what? Jasmine tea is just heavenly. ✿♥‿♥✿

Price. Damn expensive. Compared to the price we pay for a proper meal we get in other restaurants we've been so far this is damn expensive. Our bill have never been higher than £43 and that's for a normal meal. Meaning either starter(s) or dessert(s) and mains (drinks included of course). And this time the bill was £49 only for a main course (they took the dessert off the bill because of the mistake, plus I didn't eat much of it, meh). It's actually quite ridiculous to pay a price for the main alone so big that you could actually get a proper main somewhere else. And the sides are £4-5. Well, we weren't aware of that before going there and I had quite a lot of expectations unfortunately. 

For the conclusion. Won't eat, might come back for the chill zone. Yeah so before leaving we stopped at the chill zone and played some table football (first time in my life omg!!). Scored 1 point after I was almost defeated. Achievement! Lol. I liked how the bar zone is so separated, there are bar seats and also some hammocks in the chill zone. So perfect during the happy cocktail hour Mon-Fri till 7pm. Want to come back for that only lol.

Alsooooooo... I want to show you the most beautiful natural blonde hair colour you will ever see.


Seriously, I'm so envious of his hair. (♥ω♥ ) ~♪ (did you know that I have a big admiration for blonde haired guys? hahahha)

By the way this pic is also in my #100happydays project I'm doing on my Twitter. How come you haven't seen it?? Follow me on Instagram! I'm so active there recently, you'll love it. ♥(✿ฺ´∀`✿ฺ)ノ 

Happy experimenting (hopefully successful one lol) (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

I got rejected

Today I experienced the weirdest and most frustrating thing I've ever experienced during my job hunt.

Today I got rejected. I had interview yesterday for a waitress position in a French cafe. I was accepted and invited to come today to start training. I had a free evening so I decided to finally dye my hair. It's been a while and my roots were too frightening lol. I was aware that the copper dye I bought won't remove my red colour since it's too dark but my roots became really orange nicely transitioning to red. Kinda like inverted ombre lol!

This is how I looked yesterday after dyeing:


Kinda dark, can't really see colours well.

Aaaanyways, today I come for a training, joining the staff meeting and boom...

-You dyed your hair?
-Yes I did.
-It was darker yesterday.
-Yes it was.
-You can't work with hair this bright.

...okay. So it appears that leisure centre this cafe is opening at created some stupid rules about person's appearance. Person can't have any face piercing, can't have any tattoos and can't have his/her hair dyed unnatural colours. They only allow shades of brown and blonde. I was told that if I dye my hair dark they will hire me. I was totally shocked. I said I will think and went to do the induction. After that I just went to the manager and told that I can't do this. I can't just dye my hair and it is sad that they judge person because of the hair colour and doesn't consider person with colourful hair the same valuable staff member.

Seriously I was so shocked and angry and annoyed! Since when you can tell if person is good or not just by looking at their hair colour??! You learn something new every day. What if the actual natural bright ginger would come to the interview. Would they ask to dye her/his hair dark too? Lol. Well, no thank you, I am not going to change myself the way they want so that I can work and hate how I look. This is just stupid.

All companies I have applied for talk about equal rights, asking so many questions about race, age, gender, etc all the time. I guess they should add *natural hair*(!!!) in their job description because this is the only discrimination since everyone's so equal lol...

To think about it...I don't even consider myself as one of those crazy people with crazy hair! My face isn't pierced, I only have 3 lobe piercings and had to grow my cartilage because it never fully healed for few years and I don't have any tattoos. But this was my first time like that... I'm speechless.

Yeah well, be calm, I'm not going to change my hair for sure... I look great.


I'm flaming dammit! ♥

Have you ever experienced anything like this? Tell me your story. ♥

P.S.: I don't hold any grudges to that cafe. People are really friendly and great. All atmosphere is inviting. It's that supid leisure centre fault... Seriously what kind of stupidity just happened today...

First Impressions: Part II

Hey guess what? I finally decided I need to finish what I started lol. Here's my impressions blog Part II! If you want to read Part I click this link!

In this part I will continue posting random pictures (and by random I mean RANDOM) with stories from few months ago with impressions of UK since I came here. Enjoy!


I seriously love pound stores. So many goody goodies! Like this cereal for example. It has tiny marshmallows!! Could it be cuter?? The caption? Actually I dedicated this pic to my dear friend Lola, she hates marshmallows and I just can't help but think about her when I see them. xDD Sorry, I love you girl. (◍•ᴗ•◍)❤


I saw this poster in the VUE cinema, asdfghjkl; it was so cute! (I hate my old phone's camera) As many of you know this is the strawberry and piece of cake from Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2. Why it's rating is so small??? I think I'll rewatch this movie today. It's just too brilliant. :'D

Talking about cinemas...did you know that you can watch some few months old animated movies in Cineworld Saturday/Sunday around 10am for £1.50??? Crazy!!! (=⌒▽⌒=)


Having fun with English language. Even though I know what they meant...IT'S JUST TOO FUNNY!!! I mean seriously, who of the people who created English language decided to call ghost, the one that haunts old houses the same as god's spirit lol. Oh by the way, it was closed. The ghost might ran away from it's zone... *coughs* sorry I'll stop now. (no offence towards anyone. this is purely my stupid joke, I am tolerant as long as your beliefs doesn't hurt other people)


Sunsets are beautiful wherever you are... ♥

I had a job in a press for a few months in New Duston, Northampton and it would usually end at this perfect sunset time. Sadly it wasn't a perfect time for bus catching so I would usually come late and had to wait half an hour for another one...


...but who cares when you've got pasta!!! Hahahaha.


Oh yeah, at the end of the summer I found out that I am a freak when it come to ice cream. Why there are so many different tastes??!! I NEED TO TASTE THEM ALL へ(゜∇、°)へ


Oh yeah we tried the famous Nando's restaurant. Wasn't bad at all! Especially the never ending glass of the drink of your choice lol. And I just had to take the infamous bathroom selfie. The window was just too big not to... *guilty* (〃▽〃)


No wonder there are so many overweight people. There are soooo many ready food only left to cook in an oven for like 20 minutes. It is tasty but it is full of bad fat.


After eating all those ready meals for few months we just started to prepare similar food almost from scratch. It's so much healthier! Yes, it takes more time but it is so much fun! More people should try that... Experimenting is awesome. ヾ(。◕ฺ∀◕ฺ)ノ


Pasta bake!!! Yummy~ OMG haven't baked this for so long... ♥


I finally bought new phone and started taking better quality pictures. (^v^)


Lithuanians will understand this one looooool... (hint: it's a swear word) (ノ>▽<。)ノ

And here started the longing for home...


Found a whole shelf full of Lithuanian sweets for 1 pound. These are so good! ♥


Got a postcard from my sis. She knows how I love owls. Brought tears to my eyes.


And sent this music key friendship necklace to my best friend. Miss her so much... ♥


One of the most important impressions I wanted to mention from the start. It's so different from Lithuania. Whenever you look up to the sky you will always see a plane here or there or at least a trail. It really amazes me and makes me realise how small we are living in this big country.

Stay impressed. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

First trip to London!!! Part I

Hey guys! Yes, I've been gone again but if you've been following me on Instagram or Twitter you know that I've been to London few weeks ago! I guess I was too lazy to spam my social sites with photos, so I'm just posting it all here. Gee, what's better than photos with a whole story under them?

First of all, SQUIRRELS!!! I love them, seriously. Even though my boyfriend's friend said that grey squirrels are bad, overpopulated, which lead to extinction (almost) of red squirrels on the main island. Yes, they are a lot bigger than red squirrels and can weight around 600g in winter (gaining around 120g) when red squirrels gain only around 25g during winter. Fatsoes!! Lmao. But still...squirrels!!! Why I'm saying this? Because I've never been this close to a squirrel before. I have heard stories that there are a lot of animals in UK who aren't afraid of humans at all but didn't imagine I would experience that!


Sorry for the narrow view, I keep forgetting that I need to record in horizontal position lol.


It was my first time seeing bikes standing just like that. A super easy (I think) way to rent a bike all over London. After looking at the price list for a couple of minutes I realised that it's too confusing lol and decided that it's cheaper to just get your own bike or use a public transport lol.


This was one of the most majestic buildings I saw that day. Seriously amazing. And sooooo many people in one place!!! A lot of them coming in and out but most of them just sitting around. I don't blame them, the atmosphere is amazing.


Oh yeah, FIY it's a British Musem. XD We just went straight in looking for a ticket sale booth. After seeing people just coming in and going straight to the show rooms and guard dgaf we were a bit confused but having a free pass around a huge museum is so awesome!


I think this was one of the first exhibits we saw. One of the most memorable for sure lol. Dat booty.


And this is how duck face was born... One of the funniest exhibits in the museum lmao.


After walking around and feeling kinda lost we walk into this beautiful place. The roof is so amazing!


We're so pretty. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧


I just had to use my boyfriend for the size comparison. xD Someone's tomb. Okay, that seriously creeped me out knowing that someone's inside. D:


Here's my boyfriend looking freaking amaze. He wish he was this tall. (〜 ̄▽ ̄)〜


And now he's making funny faces this woman because he wish his head was this strong to hold a freaking roof lmao. 〜( ̄▽ ̄〜)


Everything looks so majestic...


Fist bumping the history o (^‿^✿)


So sad this pic looks like crap. It looked so amazing. Deep dark colours and everything. ( T⌓T )


So this one is the last pic from the museum. And which just HAD to come out blurry... u___u It is one of the Macedonian times corona. Well, if it was not that blurry I would challenge you to find 3 cicadas and 1 bee because that's how it is called haha. So awesome.

I guess what amazed me the most was the room full of building parts from Greece. It was underground and the smell when you went down there was just...I dunno maybe I'm imagining or maybe it's just a smell of some preserving chemicals but the smell was so...old. You know, that smell when you visit some few hundred years old building. I kinda love that smell, makes me feel so weird and think about how would it be to live in the past...

We haven't even walked around whole museum! It was too big and we came too late haha, guard was already guiding everyone out (although there were still lots of people coming in! When do they actually close??). But we promised to come back next time we visit London. 。◕‿◕。

Since I don't want to flood you all with photos I am finishing my part I and hoping to show you part II very soon! ❣◕ ‿ ◕❣
