It was a rather uneventful day of traveling. The flight from Toronto to London was full of people with British accents who were eager to go home. As for me, I experienced for the first time what it's like to order a special meal (low calorie) for my flight. It was rather strange to be served before everyone else every time.
As soon as I arrived at Gatwick, I made a beeline to Marks & Spencer. All the prepared food were very enticingly displayed that I had a hard time deciding what to get for lunch (see, novelty can surely affect a person's judgement)! I chose a box of Mini Scotch Eggs (mmm....breaded meatballs with eggs & mayo filling), Giant Couscous Wheatberry Salad With Roasted Butternut Squash (it was alright), Greek-Style Yogurt With Cherry Compote (yum!), and Feast Selection Sandwich. I also saw a really cute 4"-size birthday fruit cake frosted with marzipan. It looked so adorable that I was tempted to get one home...I will definitely make a stop at Marks & Spencer on the last day of my trip to get some goodies.
While I was waiting around in the airport killing time, I saw some funny/scary stuff. There's a juice store with a questionable name which made me chuckle out loud. I mean, really, "Lovejuice" just doesn't evoke a healthy lifestyle image...alright, time to get your minds out of the gutters. I didn't know that Krispy Kreme Donuts have invaded England until I saw people around me toting around boxes of that familiar white and green. On closer investigation, I found out that the Krispy Kreme store was giving away their donuts by the dozen and of course people were quick to sweep them up! Apparently, it was not some promotional schtick. Rather, the store was due for some renovation and they just wanted to get rid of all the donuts so the contractors can do their work. Somehow, the image of all these people walking around with boxes of Krispy Kreme was very scary to me. Think of all the calories!!!!
