It was a perfect autumn weekend to remember. While he spent a busy Saturday engulfed in translation assignments and she spent in the editing, sorting and scheduling posts for the blog – it was long pending to take a day off before everything gets lost in the translation. Rather than a fancy restaurant and dancin’ in a night club, we put aside a few hours of sunshine on Sunday to hang out and be kids together.
What did two kids, footloose and fancy free in London want to do?We headed towards the unsurprising green lungs of London – Hyde Park – which never goes into hiding but is always there to welcome you to breathe fresh air while this time of the year the nature unveils the beautiful seasonal display of its own light and colour show through the falling leaves.
If there is still magic to be found in the world, you’ll find it in autumn sunshine, here.
Shoes that match the falling leaves are everything you should embrace, now! Wearing Shoe Embassy brogue in Amber Being ‘truly’ a Zara Woman here: Coat, jumper, skinny jeans, bag from Zara Wearing Miu Miu Cat Eye Sunnies

We also managed to go to the other side of the road to see this side of the park which was still green-ish When asked to pose, it’s always awkward!
A massive ‘thing to do’ from the bucket check list was ticked off when he got hold of a Boris Bike to be blessed with pedal force in the stroll around the green reserve. As if it was a propel down the boyhood lane, the joy of moving ahead by not walking with the autumn wind through the hair is too strong to beam the face with the joy of memories being recycled while cycling. Tanusree was as usual bitten by the shutter bug so she made sure that the golden auras of the falling autumn sun shine on her dark shades before saying à demain to Londoners.
We spotted lots more sculptures and art installations inside the park this time than we have seen during our previous hundreds of visits in last 7 years. Which is nice!
While he was playing with his new found toy cycling around, she was making friends with the swans, pigeons, squirrels and birds. So, a happy melange after all!
We thoroughly recommend you give day dating a go. Grab’em and whisk’em away for a fun afternoon. You won’t be able to wipe that smile off for the rest of the day.
These large bubbles were blown by a father to entertain his little son, looks like we were all entertained and be part in the merry making And a hidden waterfall Hidden treasure inside the Hyde park…resembling a scene from Avatar? It’s like prism!
After a nice little stroll around the Serpentine Lake watching the greedy pampered feathered friends being fed generously, we also decided to look for a place to get fed before we got fed up.
Finally ticked off the list (of restaurants to dine out in London) Usually you are given a food menu too; but not here! The waiter will explain what is available which takes no longer than 15 seconds and is as simple as it can get!
The only place you’ll have the food menu- at the entrance The waiting time was 15 minutes, so we made no mistake grabbing a place at the bar for a cocktail We ordered two Soft Shells from the menu Hawaiian Cooler for the lady and a hot drink for the gentleman While we sip away, we made an observation that Burger and Lobster is fairly concealed from the bright lights of the food hall up on floor five of Harvey Nichols, occupying a comparatively moodily lit corner of the large room If you really fancy the finer things in life, you gotta make it happen, like a boss! The Burger and Lobster chain has been such a success story that you can always expect queues outside their venues, especially given the no-reservation policy. And we now know why! Friendly staff are keen to initiate a conversation We also spent a good amount of time people-watching, don’t you love it? The music was upbeat to make the mood Glass was getting empty, stomach was emptier The lady who served us food was up and getting the table ready Who could resist walking upto the kitchen counter to see these plates getting ready? Along the way, capture a few moments with the chef, staff and in the camera We were handed over a playful plastic bib A lobster claw-shaped cracker- not only for aesthetics, you will have the need to use them at some point while cracking those claws As the Burgers were made of Beef ( and Tanusree doesn’t eat red meat), we opted for their signature dish- the whole lobster – A 1.5lb lobster served steamed or grilled. Served with plain or lemon and garlic butter. The lobster in the above picture was served grilled with lemon and garlic butter- we love it that way!
In terms of the food, the concept is simple: £20 for either a burger, lobster roll, or a whole lobster. Lobster is definitely better value for money than the rest. About to do *happy bunny dance The serious eater The one who have fun with food Plagiarising someone and going to call it “Finger lickin’ good”
Uncanny it was, we looked for a pub, but iPhone‘s Siri led us to Burger & Lobsters – a place we had been eyeing to mouth some delicacies for a long time. Some cycling, some walking, some pictures, some lobsters, some falling leaves and the way we weave the memories – charged up for another week, hand in hand.0
