Monkeying Around the World

Lil Dave’s Adventures with Ivan and Jennifer

Indian Palace

Ivan, Jennifer and I walked to Jamie’s Italian for lunch on September 29, 2009.  It’s Jamie Oliver’s new restaurant located in Canary Wharf. There was a small queue (line) to get in.  The decor of the restaurant is nice.

Ivan and Jennifer started off with the popcorn chickpeas.  It was boring and didn’t have much flavor.

I had an okay fettuccine alfredo with bananas.  Ivan and Jennifer shared the prawn linguine and the pumpkin ravioli.  They couldn’t really taste the prawns.  The meal was only average.  We thought it would be better since his Fifteen restaurant in Melbourne was really good.

We went to visit Ivan’s friend Jo.  We chatted for a while at his apartment.


He served us tea and biscuits.  Jo is a friendly guy.

We got the train to Harrod’s.


It’s a huge department store.  It has really great decorations.


There’s tons of expensive products to buy at the store like clothes, toys, dog items, perfume and food.

We got a bus to Fortnum and Mason.  We walked around checking out the chocolate, teas, biscuits, jams and cookies.

We walked to Chowki for dinner.  It’s an Indian restaurant.  I had a spicy banana curry with rice.


Ivan got the mumbai fish.  Jennifer ordered the chicken madras.  It was really good food!

We went to see Ross Noble.  He’s an English comedian who lives in Australia.  He was very surreal.  He was funny though.  But, he was saying lots of English references so Jennifer and I didn’t understand a lot of things.

Ivan, Jennifer and I checked out of the Brittania International Hotel on September 30, 2009.  We stored our luggage with the bell desk.


We got a train to Buckingham Palace.  It’s only open to the public July through September.  We went to see the State Rooms.  It was really interesting.  The rooms are quite impressive.  We saw different rooms like dining rooms and sitting rooms with great art.  There’s a big room filled with gifts the Queen has received from her world travels.  It also showed some of the dresses she’s worn on those visits. We couldn’t take any pictures inside.

We picked up sandwiches at Mark & Spencers.  They didn’t really have much flavor.

We grabbed our bags from the Brittania Hotel.

We took a train to Stratford.  Then, we got a bus to Stanstead Airport.  We met Ivan’s parents at the airport.

We flew to Alicante, Spain.  It took 2 hours.

We met Ivan’s brother Neal at the airport.  He had taken the earlier flight into Alicante.  We drove to the villa in Rojales.  We unpacked our backpacks.

Ivan’s parents drove to their house nearby.  Ivan, Jen, Neal and I went to Happy Garden for dinner.  It’s a Chinese restaurant.  Ivan got a Tom Yum Soup.  I had noodles with bananas.  Jennifer had noodles with chicken.  Ivan and Jen also drank some average sangria.
