It's a Beautiful day

Sep 16, 2021,15:36 PM

so I went down to Chinatown to have lunch with a friend:

More accurately, two friends, one on my wrist. We all went to Old Town 97, a new discovery. A spectacular curry Laksa, lots of prawns, scallops, fish cake, and tofu. Best of all
hot hot hot!!
Good value, £27 for two.

Lisle St, very quiet.

Gerrard St a bit busier.

Just wandering around after lunch,, and, purely by accident (ahem!), ended up outside Maison Bertaux.
What can a chap do in such circumstances?
Beautuful day, vacant seats, killer patisseries.... oh dear!! Sit down and order a coffee with Paris Brest. I promise myself to really work hard at the gym..... tomorrow!!

My metallic friend. It's now 18 years old and still looking fresh. What a great watch.

Thanks for reading

Have a great day!

it's the first I have done. Who says a senile old dog can't find good food? Since the re-opening many old favourites are not as good as they were, whilst some that I had ruled out have upped their game. Noteable is Golden Dragon on Gerrard St, excellent D... 

Sorry, got so excited

about the food that I forgot the watch. Eighteen years old and still looks fresh and original, you might call it a masterpiece. I cannot think of any similar skeletonized numeral design before this one. KFS and team Chopard do not get the appreciation and... 

That's a really interesting original watch,

with an eight day power reserve. foodwise,i would recommend Wan Chai Corner on Gerrard Street which served a good selection of dim sum and boneless roast duck two years ago---fond memories! Best regards

Good to see you out and about. And with one of Chopard's finest designs ever

I will hope to see that up close, one day...

Amen to that Michael!
