Niki was blogging at the airport and hardly had a wink of sleep himself so we were hoping the flight wouldn't be full!
Everything was pitch dark when we arrived in London. I thought it was night time but it was only 5pm!
We were told that Mayfair is a really expensive, posh area of London. I wasn't used to seeing doormen speaking perfect English with top hats and long coats! All the top fashion designer houses were just walking distance from the Millennium Hotel. I thought of redmummy.com when I was going past Hermes, Jimmy Choo and Gucci :) We were so fortunate to be staying in such a central location.
I got up at 5 am on my first morning in London (my body clock hadn't adjusted itself) so I ran a hot bath and took my time before wandering down to Oxford Street to have breakfast. The trees were amazing and I saw several dogs round Grosvenor Square including 2 well behaved pugs off leash.
I wondered how my Malaysian pugs would cope with the cold....would probably have to buy them jumpers if they ever came here *chuckle*
I wasn't really sure what Xiaxue would be like to work with but she was prompt on all our early morning call times and less of a diva than I expected. She speaks her mind, no nonsense so at least you know where you stand! ;)
Ming and Tim from nuffnang were in London this week and Ming said we absolutely must catch Wicked the musical. It is a prequel to Wizard of Oz. Amazing set and really interesting story. Ming was raving about it and when I saw it myself, I understood why. It was incredible!
Filming in general was really hectic. We shot everywhere we went on planes, trains and on foot. We were always on the go so it was nice to sit down with no cameras rolling on our second night. Ming wanted to take us out to a fine dining restaurant. The food dishes looked like serious works of art!
The whole Project Alpha crew returned this morning (oi, you guys got off easy!) coz today was the coldest day we've had since we arrived. I couldn't believe it. I was walking toward the tube station and it started to 'rain' but it wasn't rain. It was snowfall. My coat had white flakes all over it. It's soooo cold here!
I've decided to stay on in London but I'm excited about seeing the footage from Project Alpha when I get back to KL. Project Alpha Season 2 is sponsored by Adidas Fragrance and the official broadband sponsor is P1. ok, tired now. Blog more later, nightey ;)
