From Mecklenburgh Square to Millennium Square


Man, I don’t think I’ve had such a physically shack and siong day for quite some time, at least not since the run-up to East Asian Night some months back. Together with SW and BP, I spent much of Thursday helping the SSG to pack her stuff for her move from Goodenough College across the river to her new place at Millennium Square. It was a really exhausting day. And I’m certainly getting any younger...

But don’t get me wrong. I was certainly happy to help her with the move to the new flat, which she will be sharing with the HM, who’s currently back in Singapore. And what a lovely new place they have, close by to Butler’s Wharf, with the Thames and Tower Bridge very close by, and with lots of amenities around, including important outlets such as a Starbucks and a wine retailer. I think both the SSG and the HM will enjoy their new home in London very much indeed.

When everything had been shifted, BP and I went to get takeout from a nearby Pizza Express, and promptly wolfed everything down, before sinking onto her couch for a Friends DVD marathon, feeling totally wiped out. But the evening got decidedly better when the SSG returned from sending her sister - who had also chipped in for the day - off to Heathrow Airport, whereupon we dimmed the lights, turned the music on, and began savouring the delightful Chablis we got her and also a bottle of Cava.

So, it's hearty congratulations to the SSG and HM for securing such a lovely new home, and best of luck too as they begin their second year in London soon. Wanna know something too? I so wish I could stay on in London for some time to come, especially in such a cool apartment as this, with lovely views. This is the stuff that dreams are made of.
