When Laila asked me to go to Oxford Circus I had no idea what is it, where is it and what about it. Can truly say that I haven't prepared to come here to travel around England, not just a piece of paper that I have read about it. Now I'm still wondered, why I'm here in London?

Ok, even though I don't know why I'm here but I know that today I have to go to Oxford Circus, a place that Que doesn't think that Laila could take me there. Laila (TB thelailama), she came here since last August but she's studying English Language in Brighton.

We're close friend. Now i'm here in London that's why she came to visit me. Even though Que doesn't trust Laila but I have to trust her because she's the one who takes me to Oxford Circus by Tube. (Well, I was so confused to take a tube here when I saw the lines at first time but now I'm a guru! :D) And she didn't make me disappointed. We're at Oxford Circus now. Relieve. So now she doesn't take care only herself but she can take care of me too! Too nice!

Oxford Circus is a shopping area. It's like Siam Square in Bangkok or Nathan Street in Hongkong. A lot of people are awake in the night, lots of brand name and unbranded stuff from cheap to expensive. I found a knitting wool hat which it's as same as the one I bought in Nepal. Here they sold  6.99 pounds but I bought it only 2 pounds in Nepal haha. It's London, ok.

Wink wink
  So just doing window shopping. We're waiting for boxing day! :D:D

The first transportation i've taken in London is a TUBE. First time from the airport to here, second time to Oxford Circus, well. From line one to line two. After two stations, we have to change again to another line. If I wasn't look at the sign or listen carefully, I might get lost. And I did lose while I was listening to Laila. I told her to get out. We're out. When the door closed she said "New, it's not here!!!"   

But it's good to take the tube because there has many lines even the trains are so old but it can take you to where you want, so nice. IT's reminded me of a MRT in Bangkok. Only two lines!

We walked too far after the bomb thing then we chose one coffee shop to sit even we don't drink coffee.

Laila :)
(They should have chocolate shop. I'd like to ask my friend "hey go to chocolate shop, ok?" gotta be nice). We ordered two cups of Hot Chocolate.  We sat outside and mouth as we hadn't talked much for a few months. Then someone interupted us. He's a guy from nowhere with a strange nose. Came to us and asked "Where is xxx pub?" I don't remember the name. Thought, "I've just been here for two days, what!" We don't know but they don't go. They asked us to sit with. Lai and I were hesitating. We found out later that he doesn't mean to ask the way to go there but he would like to ask us to go with him. Hahaha. Then he introduced himself that he's from ITALY. Hahahahahah.! This country again. Thought, really? Then he asked me where are you come from? I said THailand. He said "Ohh, Thailand is beautiful! I'm trying to go there many times but I don't have a chance.
Oxford Street
" Hahahaha ... You haven't been to Thailand so how do you know that it's beautiful!

Anyway we denied his request. I told him my friend is waiting for me now. I have to go back home. He handed me his mobile phone and said "call her, yeah you can call her now" CRAZY! Then he moved to Laila, thought she wanted to go. So I asked her if she? She shook her head to left and right as fast ad the fan number 3. .  haha

After he couldn't win his mission so he asked his friend to come and try. Doesn't work either! So I said bye and Have fun. He didn't give up, came back and said "no fun without you" ...Oooh hoooo. Hahahahahahaha ... What does he think that he can pick some girls at the coffee shop? Yeah could be some but not Laila and I for sure. We're too old to grab, boys!
