Minimalist in China town, London

After a solid 6 months of cutting down on the unnecessaries, such as going outs, i took my sister to China town in London. My sister does not live in the UK and visiting China town is her necessity, so here i am.

It is such a shock to me, i feel like i have just felt from another planet.

All the shops are busy and crowded, you need to queue to get into Shoryu, a Japanese ramen restaurant in China town. It took about 40 minute wait in the cold. Then you got in, the seating set up was small and narrow because there were too many people. The experience was not that pleasant because i felt like everything has been rushed and no calmness or enjoyment has been fully experienced. However the ramen was delicious, there is no point to complain any further.

A bakery shop had such a long queue, and i remembered that cash is preferred, so i took out the £10 note to pay for some cakes, just to be told that the old £10 is not used anymore. It was very embarrassing because the queue was long and i was there with the old £10 note.

I felt proud of myself at the same time because that was just to prove that i have not been slashing cash for a decent period already.

The whole day walking around China town to see thousands of people passing by. It is definitely not a place for me anymore. I would prefer a calm and quiet place where i can be calm and fully be myself rather than stressing out in a buzzing place.

Minimalist beauty

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives the passion that she shows. The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years. Audrey Hepburn
