A night in London

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.
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.
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.
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!
